Editorial Reviews

The complicated plot of Naked heart twists together the narratives of two women - one, who works as a private detective, and the other who works at an upscale fetish club. When their careers get tangled together, things get erotic, and dangerous.  Listeners will be completely at the mercy of this gripping romance, narrated with sensual alto of Kathleen Early. Early does especially well with dialogue, giving each character a unique and recognizable attitude and voice. At times frightening, at times touchingly tender, this audiobook gives a twist to the classic romance.

Publisher's Summary

Can two women who trust no one risk all and trust each other? Raised by a single mother on the wrong side of the tracks, Unity Vaughan has fought for everything she's ever achieved. Now, having made a breakthrough discovery at her biotech company, she finds her business a target for industrial espionage and a hostile takeover. She needs an expert to watch her back and spy on her enemies - which is how she finds herself in a bizarre nightclub trying to hire a woman with a flogger in one hand, a camera in the other, and a pair of corseted twins fondling her body.

Penn Harte makes her living the way lots of former CIA agents do, selling her unusual skills to the highest bidder. Lately she's also been doing her best friend Lila a favor by helping out in Lila’s upscale fetish club. When Unity approaches Penn with an offer to work for her, Penn can’t believe her luck - she’s already been hired by Unity’s biggest enemy, who want a blackmail tape. Penn figures she’ll have Unity, the perfect subject for seduction, on film an in a compromising position within days. The problem is, Penn doesn’t know if she can see Unity as just another job. Power, passion, sex, and danger drive a high stakes plot in this gripping erotic romance.

Too much

When the writer concentrated on the story this was a very good piece of fiction. Unfortunately far too much time was spent on detailing sexual encounters. The sideline story concerning S&M was given too much time and detail. In an audio format this isn't as entertaining as it might be in another medium.
Another issue was the reader. Most of the story was read in a monotone that grated on the ears. There was also some word fumbling as she had problem with pronunciation on some words. Overall I saw some potential for future works if the author concentrates on moving the plot rather than digressing into Penthouse Forum territory.

Whew! Very hot.

Great narrator, great story, really great writer. This one is the most erotic I've read from this author and it translates well into an audio book.
