Stunningly beautiful Lady Evelyn Hume is pursued by London bachelors for her looks and fortune. Few recognize her extraordinary intelligence, until a most unusual encounter with a partially blind Earl.

Although Colin Livingswell has never seen Eve Hume, he knows more of her heart than any of her admirers. The Earl is determined to show Eve with his words and actions he is worthy of her—but the villain stalking him endangers them both.

Will Colin trust Eve and her family with his dangerous secret in time to save himself? Will Eve trust her heart to view him differently from all her other suitors? For both of them, beauty truly must be in the eyes of the beholder.

Unseen Heiress is no cork-brained piece of Regency fluff. This story has a very modern feeling that does not diminish the historical ambiance. Eve is a veritable diamond of the first water who could easily cross the line into conceit but she is a genuinely intelligent and extraordinarily beautiful young woman. She comes across as so much more than the poor lonely rich girl. Colin is an outstanding hero. I lost my heart to him almost immediately and with each word I grew even fonder of him. The secondary characters of this story added so much to the plot and the tone and the world the author created is one I want to become a frequent visitor. If you are looking for a delightful break from the everyday this is the short story for you.
