My Review: Lorenna Fields is a nurse who has a blind patient in her ward. She has determined that she will not become personally involved with any of her patients, ever. However, as life goes, she is drawn to that one patient with beautiful, onyx colored eyes. Eyes that have a story to tell. Eyes that can't tell her what he saw or where he's from. So, as Lorenna takes care of this mysterious patient she secretly calls her patient "Mr. Blackeyes."
Lorenna's patient, Mr. Blackeyes, begins to regain consciousness, she begins to realize that there may "that certain spark." Talking to, encouraging and helping Mr. Blackeyes makes her an initimate part of his everyday life.
Mr. Blackeyes also feels that certain spark but feels that because he can't remember his past maybe there shouldn't be a future until that past comes back. Lorenna only knows that she has never felt this way before and would like to have a future with him. She knows that one day Mr. Blackeyes will regain his memory and somewhat dreads that day. Will he/can he accept her as more than his nurse. Someone to just rely on in his time of need?
Unexpected Love creates that great mystery of love that comes unexpectedly and sears the heart with blind, unbinding passion. A passion so great it sees beyond the outer surface.
This is a wonderful third book in the Redemption Series. Andrea writes a wonderful 5 star flowing and moving story that keeps the reader turning the page to find where life will take Lorenna and Mr. Blackeyes. Whether you've read the first two books in this series or not be assured that this is fine stand alone book in it's own right.
