Zane and Aidan had been lovers off and on for years and Zane had flitted in and out of Aidan’s life whenever his gypsy spirit moved him. One year ago Adam was blinded in an accident and had practically withdrawn from the world. Then all of a sudden Zane is back and Aidan realizes that he had no idea about the accident or Aidan’s blindness.

When Zane sees Aiden the first time since his accident he is shocked at the changes in his appearance. Aidan is very self conscious about his scars and believes that Zane would be repulsed by his damaged body. Zane realizes that he has always wanted to be in Aidan’s life but how could he convince the man who believes that, true to his usual pattern, he would be gone again very soon? Zane sets out on a campaign to woo Aidan and win his trust so that he would have no doubts Zane truly loved him and this time it will be different.

Then Zane gets a job offer that will take him away from Aidan. Can he stay the course this time and not disappoint Aidan? You’ll have to read the book to find out.

The pace of the book is fast and the action between the two characters is plausible, given their history. The sex is hot and steamy and Zane makes love to Aidan as if he were the only man he would ever want. Claire Thompson has packed a lot of story into this short format and both the story and characters are what drew me in and kept me until the end. The author does an excellent job of demonstrating how challenging it is for a blind person to live in a world made for the sighted and she does it in a way that is not at all depressing but woven into the story in a matter of fact but illuminating way.

Blind Faith is a very poignant tale about love lost and found and I thought that Zane’s and Aidan’s characters were very credible and likeable. Both men come across as remarkable but I found that Zane was great in the way he accepted Aidan’s disability and scars and forced him to embrace them and eliminate his insecurities. This is a terrific book and should appeal to both fans and new readers of Claire Thompson’s writing.
This book contains scenes of light bondage and BDSM play

  • Hi Cathleen
    I have so many balls in the air right now that I don’t know if I’m coming or going. I didn’t remember about MH because it was so long ago that I reviewed it but I’ll add it to the list today. Thanks for reminding me.

  • Yipee. You did it Wave. I got to this post from the Diverse Link under Navigation this time. The sad thing is that it pushed “The Sight of Home” by Sean Michael over onto a page all by itself.

    In all of your spare time (since you have nothing better to do) *snorts*. Maybe you could add another book already reviewed to this link – like Mexican Heat. It was very diverse with both I/R & a disability. That way T.S.O.H. will have a “post” to keep it company. After all this is a blog all about couples & romance 😉

    After reading your comment on the message board I did show this as a ‘diverse’ post. Now I have to go check my poll about Diversity. Thanks for letting me know Cathleen.

  • I think this would be a good book to fall under your diversity link. I checked the “Diversity in m/m” post 1st, & I could not comment. Then I realized this is where you opened up for comments again. People are unable to leave comments on your “Diversity” post as of a few minutes ago too.
