My rating: 4 of 5 stars
It is definitely a blessing to read stories created by some authors who are so enormously talented that they make the readers feel every emotion conveyed in the story. And Teresa Medeiros is probably one of the best out there simply for the humor she brings forth in her stories. Laughing out loud at some scenes and smiling away at some others, the author definitely comes up trumps for me all the time. Yours Until Dawn is no exception. The hero is blind and the heroine is there to help him come to terms with his blindness. Gabriel is blind not just physically but emotionally too as he faces his dark fears in accepting what fate has dealt him. I loved how the author has clearly portrayed the mental anguish experienced by Gabriel in addition to the physical difficulties for someone newly blind.
The situations created by Gabriel to force Samantha to run to the hills were hilarious. Sam the dog was too cute to resist and the servants exude warmth and affection for their boorish owner. Samantha is loyal and steadfast with lots of kindness and does not pity Gabriel’s condition. It is her no-nonsense approach to his blindness that finally helps Gabriel to live his life and accept help. The twisty surprise introduced into the story was brilliant adding the necessary drama and angst to the romantic story.
Yours Until Dawn is mildly based on the Beauty and the Beast concept without any gothic frills. And for all the fun and contentment it offered me, this surely should have been 5 stars but I will go with 4 stars as the last 20% of the story was contrived in my opinion.
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.

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 …
