"Allie is determined to build an ordinary life. To survive she needs to be the sort of woman no one notices. She has a generic job, lives in a generic apartment, and thinks maybe one day she’ll find an ordinary Joe who wants an average Jane sort of woman.
Marcus is anything but an ordinary Joe. Even if humans don’t know he is a shifter and millennial being, he’s the sort of man women notice. A night of passion spent with Marcus is a night any female, human or Pantherian, won’t forget.
But Allie does forget. She repeatedly fails to recognize him even after an intense sexual encounter. Marcus isn't satisfied until he discovers the source of her problem—face blindness, a genetic disorder with no cure. Marcus decides to use erotic rituals to teach Allie to see with more than her eyes. What he doesn't count on is that she will see past the man and recognize the beast within." ~From Goodreads
The story in Blind Heat is very interesting, we have Allie with all her coping mechanisms for face blindness and Marcus, a shape-shifting Pantherian, who is trying find out what she did with something in his protection - as he figures out why she keeps snuffing him out he's more determined than ever to make her remember him, trust him.
Allie was likable even with her disability that could have easily been written in a boring way - but I really did enjoy reading her thinking process and how she combated her face blindness. Marcus being the spiritual leader of his people on Pantheria sure likes to get down and dirty, which kinda doesn't spell spiritual leader to me, but then again my idea of spiritual leader might not be the norm ( think Buddha here ) - as hot as Marcus was and as skilled as he was in seduction there were parts that didn't sync with me. But really I imagine they wouldn't trouble anyone else but me. ;)
The romance sure was steamy! I liked the sexual suspense and denial before things really got hot and heavy - I'm a firm believer in building to amazing, hot as hell emotionally invested roll in the hay and Blind Heat sure walked a well balanced line on that!
