Blind FortuneJoanna WaughThey say love is blind, but Lady Fortuna Morley doesn't believe it. Sightless since birth, she can think of only one reason a gentleman would wed her-for the dowry and three thousand a year her father will provide. She's in London the spring of 1814 to help launch her younger cousin into society, but prefers living quietly in country. The last thing Fortuna wishes is to cross swords with the arrogant Marquess of Granville.Charles Lowden, Lord Granville, has decided to take a wife. The bride he's chosen is thirteen years his junior, but meets all criteria. What he won't abide is interference from the girl's impertinent cousin, the outspoken and opinionated Lady Fortuna Morley. The woman is determined to thwart the match. Charles is just as determined to charm Fortuna out of her disdain for him.What neither expects in the ensuing battle of wills is to fall in love.
