"A strong erotic tale of love"
A severe speech impediment makes it difficult at best for
twenty-six-year-old Robin Lee to communicate with anyone
one on one. Having to stand in front of a classroom as
demanded by the University of Denver in several of her
classes is impossible for her stuttering has left her
extremely shy, thus her fantasy of a college degree in
literature seems impractical. Even working at the Davey's
Diner as a temporary fill-in waitress proves demanding on
the TONGUE-TIED woman.
When the other students whisper loud enough for her to hear
their pity, Robin turns bold and kisses a customer. Johnny
Dayton is stunned that this lovely vision is kissing him
even as he reviews legal papers for a contentious board
meeting the next day. Soon Johnny recognizes that the lips
belong to his best friend's kid sister, Robin, and that he
wants more from her, but her timidity may prove stronger
than their growing love.
Readers will delight with the way Colleen Collin cleverly
blended a verbal-communication challenged female within a
strong erotic tale of love. Though in this age of the
Disabilities Act, readers will question the professor's
humiliation of Robin, the story line shows her as a capable
person able to communicate in ways other than
verbal. She makes the tale and Johnny is a likable hero
struggling between meeting the corporate image and his
audacious concepts to improve business. The audience will
realize that TONGUE-TIED is a triumph for fans as Ms.
Collins pens an enchanting heated tale.
