Needing Harte is a great read about finding love when you least expect it. This story gripped me right from the start. Harte is a strong willed man but he is afraid of what will happen once he outs himself at his job. Ramey is a good man who loves with all his heart and will not hide from the world. The two compliment one another very well. Harte may be new to being a Dom but Ramey is ready and willing to help him learn. The trust and love that develops between them is a beautiful read.
Marilu Mann writes a wonderful story that takes you on an emotional roller coaster. Needing Harte is a well-written and fast paced story that should not be missed.
