On the basis that I've rather enjoyed the last two romance novels by Teresa Medeiros, she's almost become an latest" with me. And halfway into the first chapter, I knew that my instincts to read "Yours Until Dawn" at once was sound: it was a good and worthwhile read. The plot may be a much used one, but Ms Medeiros' take on this old storyline was enjoyable, satisfying and almost unique.

Avon Romance, New York, New York. Yesterday at 11:02 ·.

Gabriel Fairchild's valor during battle earns him the reputation of hero, but costs him both his sight and his hope for the future. Abandoned by the fiancée he adored, the man who once walked like a prince among London's elite secludes himself in his family's mansion, cursing his way through dark days and darker nights.

Prim nurse Samantha Wickersham arrives at Fairchild Park to find her new charge behaving more like a beast than a man. Determined to do her duty, she engages the arrogant earl in a battle of both wit and wills. Although he claims she doesn't possess an ounce of womanly softness, she can feel his heart racing at her slightest touch. As Samantha begins to let the light back into Gabriel's life and his heart, they both discover that some secrets -- and some pleasures -- are best explored in the dark ...

This is a great book. It is one I read again and again. I will try to write this review without giving the twist away, even though I know other reviewers already did. It is really a shame that people wrote the twist in their review as I think it would take most people by surprise.

I find the banter between Gabriel and Samantha witty and engaging. First Gabriel is just a mean angry person who growls and throws things. He is walling in self-pity. His family treats him like an invalid and his betroth ran off after he was injured. I liked the fact that he starts challenging Samantha to try to get her to quit. He doesn't realize it at the time, but she is bringing him back to life, and he is forgetting about his self-pity. He is just starting to turn around, and he is given another devastating blow. Then some things happen and he realizes he does want to live, and be able to do things for himself. He also eventual figures out he is in love with Samantha even though he doesn't know what she looks likes. Even with the risk that one day he may be able to see her, and she may be ugly he wants to marry her. He doesn't care. He loves the person she is inside. He also doesn't care that she is a servant. That is sweet and romantic.

I find I total disagree with all the low reviews. They called Samantha, shallow, mean and cruel. I do understand that at the end when she makes mistakes again, it does seem kind of mean, and she does try to right then all at the very end. But she sees the whole thing different then we do. She has her reasons. Not saying they are correct, but not everyone is perfect. She is not trying to be mean and cruel. Her guilt for her previous mistakes just makes her not able to face up to it, and what Gabriel will think about her. She tried to correct those mistakes and to atone for them. Some unexpected things happened trying to do that, and she got in a little too deep. But she did a considerable amount of good too. I will say I was a little disappointed with Gabriel's actions with Cecily at the end. But I have to write that off as a few different things so as not to make it ruin the story for me. One it is possible to still have strong feelings for Cecily even after what he thought she had done, and still be in love with Samantha. He never really got to have resolution with that relationship. Also since everything Samantha told him was a lie, and he could not find her, in the back of his mind he probably believes he will never see her again. She vanished. Even the Bow Street Runners gave up, because they could not find a trace of her. Even though she doesn't say this, he may think he may never return. Look what happened the first time he was in the Royal Navy. Also it is possible that subconsciously he knew the truth. You would think you would have to know somewhere in his mind or his heart, it would register since you were totally in love with that person, and had been intimate with them. You will have to read the book to see what I mean by that. Or some of the other reviews can give you an idea of what that means. I am just not sure why a few people took the plot twist so bad. And TM could have ended differently that night after Cecily and Gabriel see each other at the ball. That would have eliminate people being upset about what happened with Cecily and Gabriel. Or she couldn't end it different with Samantha staying and confessing the truth, but she wanted to add some drama at the end since the book was most about Samantha and Gabriel getting to know each other and them falling in love. As well as his struggle with blindness and his scar.

I usually like more hot intimate love scenes in a book. This one is a little light, but I found I really enjoyed the book so much it doesn't bother me. I didn't want to put the book down. Ignore the bad reviews and what those people are complaining about. People have different options and I just didn't agree with most of the things they didn't like. Just like the person that complained about her telling him to shot himself. They were not listening to the whole conversation, and what her goal was. All the 4 and 5 star reviews should tell you all you need to know. You may be one of those who don't like it though and I would be sorry to have wasted you time. However as I am writing this only 7 out of 122 views rated this a 1 or 2 stars and 101 out of 122 rated it a 4 or 5 stars. I will say if you are one of those people that like everything perfect in a book don't read it. As I can see some errors in a few things she wrote, but they are not a big issue. These are romance books and everything does not have to be perfect and true. If they were exactly like it was back then, I doubt you would want to be reading about it. People didn't take care of their teeth, so their breath was really bad, they didn't take baths that often, rape murder, robbery, and other crimes were a normal thing as people took what they wanted, so women were treated badly most of the time.

Since I have Kindle Unlimited, I don't buy that many books. An author has to be really good to make the cut, and Ms. Medeiros definitely does. She writes well technically with good syntax, vocabulary and dialogue. I often skim romances, and think they are too long, but this author's books keep me interested the whole way. The characters were well drawn and sympathetic. There was droll humor. Generally I don't like humor in a romance, (don't get me started on "madcap," ugh) but when done skillfully with a light hand, it can be delightful, as in this book. Did I guess the twist? Yes, not immediately but before the reveal. This didn't spoil the book for me in the least, and I was interested to see how things would play out afterward. There are very few authors in the romance genre who can touch Teresa Medeiros for the sheer ability to tell a ripping good tale.

the first sex scene happened. I was able to suspend my disbelief about how quickly Gabriel learned to use a cane and navigate under the equally unbelievable skill of Samantha's "never did it before" training due to the engaging banter between the two for more than half of the story. Investing in Gabriel's ability to find a folly that he had not navigated to since becoming blind was ridiculous. On top of that Samantha goes looking for him, finds a abandoned stable in the middle of nowhere on the estate and ends up causing a fire and knocks herself out. Not only is Gabriel able to use all of his resources to rescue her, but also gets banged on the head. But she's rescued. They are both filthy dirty and after she regains consciousness they commence the first sex scene (your fingers are going where?!). Then comes the plot twist with Samantha, then Gabriel's ability to have sex with "the love of this youth" who drove his stupid young self into the Navy in the first place. Ms. Medeiros has a lovely writing style and is better than these contrivances. I ended up disliking Gabriel and Samantha. Since I enjoyed more than half, I didn't think it fair to give this story less than 3 stars.

this one had a great idea for a plot but went into overkill and killed it I mean he nearly dies from war then nearly dies again then she nearly dies and he third time nearly dies saving her , what are the chances ? Obvious from the beginning where it was going because of the blurbs in the beginning of each chapter , really annoying when she is described as the height of propriety , being insulted by even the use of her first name yet during first sex scene she says to him " If you liked that then you will like this " then touches him just does not add up . There is a giant part of the book where she acts annoyingly like a fuddy duddy boring older aunt and he like a 5 year old spoiled brat and their exchanges are extremely modern for the era , overall readable but boring! What really got to me though is he declares his undying love searches the streets day and night says his ex is not worth wiping her boots yet has no qualms jumping into an all nighter with said ex and who he believed her to be , like i said just did not add up!!!!!

I agree with other reviews: The (quite predictable) "twist" was unfortunate. Up to that point, the story was lovely. I hoped the story would not turn in the direction it clearly steered. Alas, it did. We've got our HEA but the last third of the story kind of ... Well, I wouldn't say ruined but definitely diminished it. It was actually ridiculous. I mean, really? I didn't just witness a literary twist but also a change in the hero's and heroine's characters that turned a lovely story into a somewhat stale substitute. It almost seems as if a different authors created it. Really very unfortunate.
Overall a good novel that could have been great.
