Eloquent Silence by Sandra Brown

2-star
Deaf-student teacher is hired by attractive soap-opera actor to become his daughter's private, live-in tutor. She has hard time resisting sexual offers of this non-committing hero who promised not to love again after his wife died. 

Read this book the 1st time 15 yrs ago & liked it. Just re-read it & could not believe the glaring sexual harrassment behaviors at work here. Even though heroine tells Hero clearly that his advances are unwelcomed because he hired her as her daughter's private tutor, Hero responds by patting her butt & continues to come on to her. Heroine displays a typical 1980's heroine behavior of I-love-you-&-I-hate-you. It's amazing how our cultural perceptions of sexiness & sex at work places can change over the years. 

Caution with this book: sexual harrassment in work setting.
