Two wounded souls, one blind and the other scarred, are matched up by the famous Madame Evangeline—neither one expecting more than a brief meeting of two bodies in the dark for one night.

Xaviera Navarro had it all, a wonderful career ahead of her running her family’s wine business, a sexy fiancĂ©, and her dream-wedding around the corner, but that all changed in the blink of an eye. A freak accident has left the Navarro wine heiress blind with no future other than the company of her seeing-eye dog, Lucy. After licking her wounds, she finally is tired of her own company and ventures out in hopes of finding a man who might be strong enough to stand beside her but not in front of her. If she can’t have that, she’ll settle for a night of hot loving before returning home.

Ignatius "Nate" Ramirez is not only a scarred fire-jumper with a justifiably bad attitude toward women, he’s also under strict orders by his Captain that if he doesn’t get laid on his vacation, he’s going to bench him. After finding out about 1Night Stand, he requests Madame Evangeline find him the perfect fantasy woman to have under the cover of darkness. Figuring he’ll have a better chance with his date with all the lights out, he wasn’t expecting a feisty, no punches pulled heiress to knock him off his feet.

A blind woman and a scarred fire-jumper should be a match made in heaven, but will Nate and Xaviera manage to leave their baggage at the door and find love all in one night.

What a great short story!!  It had just the right amount of, well just about everything.  Blink Need had anguish, turmoil, sex, passion and it was all wrapped up nicely in a really quick short read.
Nate is frustrated and angry about people’s perception of him and his injuries.  Xaviera is determined to give up men all together. Well she will after one last night of passion, believing no man wants “damaged goods”. 
The pain these two people feel is front and center.  The conflict is placed perfectly.  It felt natural and not over the top.  I enjoyed that there was no drawn out misunderstandings and over exaggerated anger, just direct and to the point.  It was nice when the two of them finally came together, it was special and WOW are they a vocal couple.  They fit together wonderfully.
As with most of the stories in the 1 Night Stand series, all you can do is wave good bye to the characters and wish them luck.  That is exactly what I want for Xaviera and Nate.  They are two tortured souls that have come together to heal and all I want for them is the best.  Thank you Ms. Trace.  Blind Need is a wonderful take on the 1NS series and is simply delightful.
