Ever since a mysterious fortuneteller informed Miss Wilhelmina Throssell that she’d soon meet her true love - a one-eyed commander -Mina's thought of little else. She never imagined marriage was in the stars for her or that she had a true love out there somewhere. Anywhere.
Lieutenant-Colonel Nathaniel Carrick, Viscount Healeyfield returned home from the battlefields with nothing but his honor, his excellent eye-sight, and a crumbling abbey to his name. As luck would have it however, his wealthy mentor has a daughter of mariagable age that he’d like to see wed before he dies. Almost instantly, Nathaniel is quite smitten with the girl. She’s lovely, enchanting and the most unique female of his acquaintance. Unfortunately, the girl in question is quite adamant that her one true love, whoever he may be, has but a single eye.
