Love in Touch by Lucy May Lennox #GuestPost #Giveaway

Tour Banner - Love in Touch

Kassie has felt adrift ever since her dad died when she was in college. Now 24 and living in Seattle, she gets interested in learning sign language through her roommate, a sign language interpreter. One day at a Deaf community event, she sees a young man sitting off by himself. Kassie feels compelled to try signing to him–the fact that he’s strikingly handsome doesn’t hurt.

Jake has been deaf and blind since birth. His disability has cut him off from the world, but beneath his isolated exterior, is a smart, sweet guy with a dry sense of humor. Despite the odds, he’s highly educated, but at 26, he’s gotten stuck in a rut, with few friends and no clear career plans. Until a sweet-smelling girl introduces herself to him unexpectedly, and opens up a whole new world to him.



Jake is more intelligent, more genuine than anyone she has met before, and for the first time Kassie starts to feel like her life has some direction. But as their friendship deepens into something more, the difficulty in communicating with each other only grows, and it seems like everyone they know thinks their relationship won’t work. How can they come to a deeper understanding of each other, and find a future together?

Lucy's Top Ten Books


Thanks so much for letting me post about Love in Touch! My challenge to myself as a writer was to create a compelling, satisfying romance about a guy with a disability. But I'm not the first author to do so. Here is my top ten list of novels featuring characters with a disability. Ok, not all are strictly speaking in the romance genre, but they're all great!

1. The Boy Next Door by Annabelle Costa - Also from Dev Love Press, chick lit romance with a paraplegic hero

2. Of Such Small Differences by Joanne Greenberg - Moving, poetic novel about a young deafblind man

3. The Highland Wife by Lyn Stone - Scottish historical romance with a deaf hero

4. Miss Ware's Refusal by Marjorie Farrell - Regency romance with a blind hero

5. Touch and Go by Thad Nodine - Contemporary novel with a blind narrator

6. Claire by Leslie Burton Blades - First published in 1918, survival tale with a blind narrator

7. Thalidomide Kid by Kate Rigby - Coming of age story set in 1970s UK about a boy born without arms

8. A Discreet Gentleman of Discovery by Kris Tualla - Norwegian historical romance/mystery with a deaf hero

9. The Raging Quiet by Sherryl Jordan - YA romance with a deaf boy

10. This Is All I Ask by Lynn Kurland - Medieval romance with a blind hero
