Schoolteacher Adam Thornton is desperately trying to grade his students’ work, as well as hide his physical reaction to his assistant Luke Ramano. Adam is blind, although his other highly developed senses react to the scent of arousal, the sound of a sexy male voice and the feel of warm masculine skin. Luke is having a hard time controlling the mental images of him and Adam in bed together. It didn’t matter that Adam is blind, Luke sincerely wanted Adam.

Blind Passion is an emotionally beautiful well written plot of a capable young man living with the loss of sight. The setting is Australia. The sensual love scenes are breathtaking. The characters are convincing. In spite of his blindness, Adam lives independently; he is extremely perceptive as well as compassionate. The only aspiration absent from Adam’s life is a loving relationship until he met Luke. Low self esteem, burdened with the guilt of other’s actions, Luke did not feel worthy of Adam’s love. Luke could not see the selflessness and integrity instilled within his own character. Both men are intelligent and honorable, expressing a desire to share a loving connection. There is no pity or judgments between them.

Penny Brandon has created a superb romance that illustrates disabilities do not define the individual; it is the qualities within which characterizes the true person. I enjoyed Blind Passion immensely.

Thank you so much for your review! You just pictured both Adam and Luke perfectly. It's hard for an author to know if someone will like their characters. They become the true life of a story and the love of an authors heart.
