Ivorce she figures why not have a no strings fling When the weekend is over and he wants to keep seeing her she isn t sure where things might go but she bravely gives it a shot Annie is a good mother and daughter an overall nice girl who would be nearly impossible not to like However I really wish the author had explored her background of abuse a little Ms Sinclair toys with the idea that it somehow made Annie a submissive person or that it might have affected her in other ways but then it doesn t really go anywhere It s not much than it happened it s over now the end I honestly think Annie would have been a fuller richer character if this side of her had been explored in depthI also thought that Annie s abuse could have been great fodder for heightened conflict as well which this story needed of IMHO Things are just a little too easy for our lovebirds Daniel s legally still married status only gets in the way for a few days until he can officially file for a divorce Then Annie s ex appears fresh out of prison wanting to see his daughter I thought perhaps he might try something but nada Apparently he s a changed man Daniel s ex has words with him a couple of times but it s little than a token fuss His daughter is the stereotypical sullen teenager but falls into line with Daniel s military discipline pretty easily So there really isn t a whole lot to stand in our couple s way or make their relationship stakes high This is the main reason I marked off the star but there was also some awkward wording and difficulties with knowing who was speaking in dialogue at timesOtherwise The Escort was a pretty enjoyable story Even without the conflict it held my attention pretty well I wasn t bored while reading it Also I appreciated the author s use of Daniel s other senses especially his penchant for touch I love it when touch is an integral part of love scenes and because of Daniel s disability this story has that in spades I feel like it helps to create a sensual bond between the lovers so this earned it a few extra points The Escort may not have reached the heights of perfection for me but it was a nice gentle story that made for a pleasant reading experienceNote I ve noticed this book is usually classified as erotic romance but I personally thought it leaned toward ultra steamy as the sex doesn t overwhelm the story nor is there anything over the top kinky One love scene involved the use of a special blindfold so that Annie could see what it was like for Daniel being blind There are also a couple of very brief moments of anal play with fingers but that s about it as far as sexual activities that are out of the ordinary This story exceeded any and all expectations I had From the blurb I knew instantly I was hooked but the actual story is even 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 and as I read them that they can indeed The Escort is one of those booksThe 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 thi Very easy to read light and uicky afternoon reading It s very sweet romantic and erotic It also has its rough side to complement the story I loved Daniel s humor and understood Annie s behavior I d recommend it My 2nd from this author and I liked it a lot Kinda reminded me of Scent of A Woman if Chris O Connell had been a woman This was a second chance for both Daniel and Annie Both characters had been damaged but together they were a whole Daniel is a retired Army colonel who has devoted himself to helping out soldiers that were formerly under his command He wants to attend a reunion with two. Pays to share his nights That suits him just fine until he hires Annie Claire Townsend to accompany him on a weekend 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.

Reviewed for THC ReviewsI m a sucker for romances that have a Pretty Woman vibe to them as well as for physically damaged characters and The Escort fits the bill on both counts The hero is blind although uite independent and self sufficient as well as lucky enough to be sufficiently wealthy to afford great assistants The heroine has just started working for an escort service and while she s instituted a no sex policy and isn t officially a prostitute she breaks her rule in pretty short order leaving some room for interpretation on that account While the story did have a few downsides to it overall it was a nice easy feel good read that I generally enjoyedThanks to inheriting a fortune from his mother s side of the family Daniel is a wealthy man but because his father was a career military man who expected his oldest son to follow in his footsteps Daniel went into the army where he worked his way up to a commanding officer He was badly wounded in Ira along with two of his comrades he was trying to save while the others in his unit were killed As a result he lost his eyesight due to a blow to the head He s a very strong willed man who s learned to make the best of a bad situation and now he s trying to use his money and influence to help others like himself who aren t as fortunate More than anything he wants to help the two men he rescued whom he s recently found out are having a hard time readjusting to life stateside One is an alcoholic while the other one has attempted suicide on multiple occasions Daniel wants to show them how he s carved out a new life for himself in hopes that they ll be inspired by him as well as to pay for their stays in treatment centers But in order to accomplish that he wants to seem as normal as possible so he hires Annie to be his pretend girlfriend for the weekend he s going to spend with the guys and their wivesAfter a failed marriage and a bitter separation Daniel doesn t think he ll get married again and his blindness makes it hard for him to get out and meet women anyway He s hired a number of women from the escort service some for companionship some for sex but with Annie it s all different With the help of his assistant Daniel hired her not just for her beauty but also her classiness and intelligence She turns out to be even than he expected handling a number of challenging situations with grace and dignity and despite her no sex rule she turns out to be a willing bed partner as well Daniel has that take charge military demeanor but it isn t over the top He s a kind hearted man who wants to help others I liked how Annie thought of him as a collector of misfits as he tends to surround himself with lost souls making it his mission to give them a new purpose in life Despite his wife trying to turn their daughter against him he s always taken the high road and he s good with kids He s a consummate seducer who s so sexy charming and persuasive he could talk his way into a nun s bed He s one of those rare over 40 romance heroes although that isn t something we find out until the end of the story Overall I really liked Daniel I just wish I d been inside his head a little to understand better how and why he fell so hard for Annie so fast after thinking he would never have a serious relationship like that againAnnie was married to a man who severely abused her nearly killing her She also had to deal with a gravely ill child and with all the medical bills racking up she needed some fast cash A friend put her on to the escort service and when Daniel offered her ten thousand dollars for one weekend she simply couldn t pass it up She s surprised by how much she likes him in such a short time but then he s an easy man to like In fact his seductiveness proves irresistible and since she hasn t been with a man since her Originally published by Loose Id in 2012 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 Irai 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.
