Angie didn't know all of the facts!

When her sister, Cilla, decided not to marry Terzan Helios after all, Angie was persuaded to go to his Greek island to break the news.

Cilla had described Terzan as 'sinfully wealthy and wickedly attractive'. But she had neglected to tell Angie one thing--Terzan was now blind. Angie's heart soon went out to the proud, enigmatic Greek.

Yet she would never let him suspect that her feelings were stronger than compassion. For, to Terzan, Angie would always be a mere substitute.

This is a book I look forward to re-reading every so often. I like the hero/heroine although he is very much an alpha male. Angie goes to his island to break her sisters engagement because she is too cowardly and spoiled to do it herself. Angie find Terzan needs her and so she stays only to fall in love with him but feeling that he loves her sister still.
Celia on the other hand has found another man to seduce more to her liking but a tad above her socially. She lives off of her looks and art of persuasion until her hoped for suitor doesn't come up to scratch so Angie's sister now becomes the OW...spoiled,selfish and bad mannered to boot.
I liked Angie's sweet and unselfish personality, the beautiful island and glimpses into island life. A good read!
