Masters of the Shadowlands 1: Club Shadowlands
Her car disabled during a tropical storm, Jessica Randall discovers the isolated house where she's sheltering is a private bondage club. At first shocked, she soon becomes aroused watching the interactions between the Doms and their subs. But she's a professional woman—an accountant—and surely isn't submissive . . . is she?
Master Z hasn't been so attracted to a woman in years. But the little sub who has wandered into his club intrigues him. She's intelligent. Reserved. Conservative. After he discovers her interest in BDSM, he can't resist breaching her walls and unleashing the passion she keeps hidden within.
I absolutely loved reading this series. Cherise Sinclair grabs your attention from the first chapter and it doesn’t stop until the last page. I can’t tell you how much sleep I lost because I couldn’t find a place to stop reading and put the book down. And just a warning, buy all of them at one time because the last page of one turns into the first of the next. The stories are sizzling hot but also hold you because they seem so real for the life style. I applaud her in depth research into the life style and believe that is what makes the stories so great.
As for the Dominant Master and owner of the Shawdowlands, Master Z, he finds Jessica totally by chance but the story isn’t one of falling in love and two days later living together and marrying each other. We all read plenty of those stories. The relationship between Master Z and Jessica is slow and built on gaining trust a little bit at a time. There is no marriage at the end of this tale but you couldn’t ask for a better last page.
Realistic – Powerful – Sizzling –Sensual – BDSM at its best!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
If you enjoy reading BDSM, I would like you to read this series and let me know if you know of any other series that might come close to Sinclair. I don’t think it will happen. This is not just the best in it genre, I think it might be put in my ultimate favorite category. The only problem in reading a book this great is that you tend to use it to gage everything else you read. I may not be able to give out a top rating again for awhile.
I give Club Shawdowlands 5 chocolate dipped Strawberries without any reservations. Sinclair will also be placed in my “read anything they write” group of authors. WOW
