Blind Obsession, a novel by Angela Weaver, deals with deception, intrigue and undying love.
Gabriella Marie, was a professional flautist, lived abroad with her fiancé when she discovered that he was not the man that she thought him to be. This discovery took place as she watched her fiancés brother torture and murder two men, while her loving fiancé stood there watching. After witnessing such a heinous crime, Gabriella fled in fear of her life to a father that she had not spoken to in years.
Darius Yassoud, a military Special Forces operative, agrees to help his uncle honor a request from a dear friend Sebastian, with whom he credits for his start in business. This favor included as bodyguard for Sebastian's daughter and protecting her from the fiancé that she is fleeing. This elaborate protection scheme lands them in New York, living undercover with the best surveillance and resources that money can buy. The only thing is that the fiancé and his brother will go to any lengths to locate Gabriella. The fiancé wants her back and his brother wants her dead. Out of a need for safety and for Darius' need to keep her safe, they both act on the strong attraction for one another and it eventually turns into love.
I found in reading this novel that it started slowly, However, once it picked up, it really took off. It provided the reader with the basics one looks for in a romance novel; which is romance. In the same token, it provided intrigue and suspense. Ms. Weaver does quite well at weaving this story and before you know it, you've been absorbed into the tale.
