I was in the mood for one of those toe curling, don’t let anyone see you swoon because you will, kind of books. You know, the utterly romantic type that makes you smile and sigh at the wall. Yeah, that kind and where else could I look but Teresa Mederios?
Yours Until Dawn is a historical romance with a very Beauty and the Beast type feel. Gabriel wanted to prove his worth to the love of his life, Cecily so he joins the royal navy. On one terrible battle, the ship is attacked. His friends are killed and he’s hit in the head so violently Gabriel is left blind. When he gets out of the hospital, his fiance Cecily has abandoned him and without sight he’s lost in the world. He locks himself away in his wealthy home and becomes a beast of a man. Then comes conservative nurse Samantha who is determined to save Gabriel from a depressed existence but this pretty lady has secrets of her own. I’m talking huge secrets. Can Gabriel find happiness with his lost sight? Can Samantha come clean about her past?
Teresa Medeiros has a way of weaving a story so elegantly and seamlessly that there is no escape. I sat down to read a chapter before bed and was twelve chapters in before I stopped. The only reason I stopped is because my vision was getting blurry. I fell in love with Samantha who refuses to be bullied and Gabriel who is so lost with his disability. Their romance is beautiful and humorous at times. I absolutely loved Yours Until Dawn!
