An unfortunate fluke of timing puts Lieutenant Colonel Daniel Harte in the wrong place at the wrong time, and it costs him his career. Caught in an Iraqi ambush while on a rescue operation, he's hit by shrapnel that damages the visual cortex of his brain. With family wealth, nothing is beyond his grasp, including the women he pays to share his nights. That suits him just fine, until he hires Annie Claire Townsend to accompany him on a mission to help the two damaged soldiers he saved in the same attack that took his sight.

Taking a job as an escort is nothing Annie ever considered until medical bills from her daughter's illness buried her in debt. How could she refuse the ten thousand dollar fee? She has no idea her client is blind until she meets him, and his focus is off. Way off. Nothing about Daniel Harte elicits pity. He's roguishly handsome, assertive, and the sexiest man she's ever met. She can no more resist him than she could stop breathing. But Annie has secrets she can't confide to anyone, especially the man she's falling in love with.

Publisher's Note: This book contains explicit sexual content, graphic language, and situations some readers may find objectionable: anal play/intercourse.


This story exceeded any and all expectations I had. From the blurb, I knew instantly I was hooked, but the actual story is even more amazing. It's both emotional and erotic. I never understood or knew before I actually read an erotic romance that it can have such an emotional impact on the reader. I learn more and more as I read them that they can indeed. The Escort is one of those books.

The characters are well developed and there are definitely layers of conflict for both Annie and Daniel. The secondary characters play such an important role in the story and this really is the kind of book that you can read over and over again and still fall in love with the characters each time.

This is my first time reading Maryn Sinclair, and I can't wait to find out other books this author may have, or will have in the future. Don't miss this tender, wonderful story if you enjoy contemporary erotic romances with lots of heart and heat.

I've read Maryn's book, Sexual Persuasion, and it shows the same great ability to develop characters and touch our emotions. A great read.

I loved this story. The characters are people I'd like to know. I fell in love right along with them. It's always rewarding when a book offers real emotion and makes you care. Good job, Ms. Sinclair!
