Deaf since age ten, Carlee Cooper has become a master gardener. She has developed a teaching greenhouse, funded by her rich landlord, at the local high school and she lives in the small guest cottage behind his home. Although she’s attracted to him, she doesn’t have much self-confidence when it comes to men.
Her landlord, BDSM Dom York Bridges, knows a sub when he sees one—when he touches and smells her. Carlee is drawn to York’s control and power. She’ll submit to the red collar her Master places around her neck and his cuffs on her wrists, for now…
Silent Heat is an interesting erotic story with some twists and turns. Vonna Harper writes an entertaining tale with heart. The main character, Carlee Cooper, is deaf and we get to experience some of what that entails in her day to day life.
As the story progresses, Carlee comes out of her shell and gains some self-confidence; mostly due to her special four legged friend.
York Bridges is Carlee’s landlord and friend. He notices a change in Carlee when he comes back from one of his many business trips. York can’t help but be attracted to the new Carlee and presses her to find out if the attraction is mutual.
The two rush head long into a sexual affair. With the rushing comes some second guessing. The plot twists and turns keep you guessing at the outcome of their relationship.
The story is well written. I just felt that one of the plot twists, involving York and his sexual preference in the end, could have been expounded on a little better. It left the story feeling somewhat unfinished.
