Ana | 7 comments A man had a fiancée (girlfriend?) but he fell off a horse and he was left blind. When she learned that he was blind she left him and he was left heartbroken and didn't believe in love. Then he meets his nurse (physical therapist?). He asks her what she looks like and she says she wears glasses and long skirts, leading him to believe she's old.

Later on they get married because he needed to get custody of a nephew (?) but he needed to be married in order to get his custody. When he finds out the nurse is actually 25 and pretty I think he was mad for being made a fool of. The nurse was a redhead with green eyes.

They used to listen to detective soap operas on the radio every night. The guy was an ogre to everyone after he was abandoned by his girlfriend.

The girl was beautiful but hated that everyone liked her only for her beauty, this is why she fell for the guy since he couldn't see but still came to like her.

She got the job by looking for it, the man's assistant (?) hired her.

Thanks in advance.

Temporary. He was also unable to walk for some time. That's why he had a physical therapist.

I have no idea about the year. I remembered an extra detail but it's not much. I remember the nurse and the man used to listen to detective soap operas on the radio every night.

Sarah And The Stranger (Silhouette Desire #730) by Shawna Delacorte (blind in freak accident, therapist has plain looks, man regains sight)

Mid-1990s. It might've been a harlequin romance. Umm. The nurse only lied about her looks though. She was actually quite pretty.

Just looked through it and the historical sounds quite like it except this one was modern time. I'll look through the list you sent.

I've been looking it up and it's both frustrating and tiring. I really appreciate your hard effort :)
