From NYT & USA Today Bestselling author Cherise Sinclair comes an outstanding addition to the beloved Masters of the Shadowlands series.
The secret of author Murphy’s success is hands-on research.
Murphy loves writing popular Regency thrillers and jumping into new adventures under the guise of research. For one novel, she’d joined a K9 search-and-rescue group—and liked it so much she stayed. But this book… Why had she thought a Regency birching club was a good setting?
The challenge is, she’ll have to return to the Shadowlands.
Years ago, she’d sneaked into the area’s most exclusive, private club. And what had happened to her there…well, she still has nightmares. But she’s healed now, right?
When she gets up her courage to visit the club, the owner hands her over to Master Saxon.
Master Saxon is handsome, powerful, and dominant. The veterinarian has a gorgeous smile, a trust-me voice, and does Search and Rescue with his canine helper, Sherlock. In the Shadowlands, he’s known as the Viking god. For years, he’s avoided serious relationships. A quiet, little author can’t possibly slip past his defenses. Even if he does adore her books.
Master Saxon guided her into the dungeon. “If I birch you extra hard, will that get you to write faster?”
Her mouth dropped open at his wicked grin, then his words registered. “No!”
Note: Full-length, sizzling-hot novel with no cliff hanger and no cheating. A protective, dominant hero. A vulnerable, intelligent heroine. Page-turning adventure, sigh-worthy romance, hilarious girl-gang moments…and an adorable, fluffy dog.
Review by Twinsie Angie
I was given this book by the author for an honest review.
LAWD!! I am so excited to read Saxon. I mean “huge Viking” was the description I read, and it love at first paragraph…sorry Marcus don’t be jealous, ok? You’re still #1 in my heart but a girl can look.
Saxon and Murphy were quite a pair. Saxon having no interest in “Love” because women always want him for who he is vs him. Murphy has always led a life with constant put downs and hurt by those who “love” her. To say they have issues is an understatement.
These two meet and have a chemistry until….well when you don’t know the lifestyle Saxton is in you can mistake things….dang it Gabi talk to your Master. Any who, when the have a 2nd encounter, they seem to be interested …. The chemistry is amazing. Saxton is delicious as all the Shadowland Masters are…amIright???
I really enjoyed this book. They both realized simple acts really show your intentions for someone. Words don’t matter like actions do. Saxton and Murphy both go out for their way with actions for the other.
As always, we gotta have some issues …..Dang skanks. Dang family. Dang Trauma.
I was totally in love with this new couple. I, of course, loved seeing Master Marcus in a lot of the book plus all the other couples. The updates continue for all the couples like Sally and Andrea!!
This series is like coming home to good friends. I look forward to each and every single one.
A New York Times and USA Today bestselling author, she’s renowned for writing heart-wrenching romances with laugh-out-loud dialogue, alpha males, and absolutely sizzling sex.
I met my dearheart when vacationing in the Caribbean. Now I won’t say it was love at first sight. Actually since he stood over me, enjoying the view down my swimsuit top, I might have been a tad peeved—as well as attracted. But although we were together less than two days and lived on opposite sides of the country, love can’t be corralled by time or space.
We’ve now been married for many, many years. (And he still looks down my swimsuit tops.)
Nowadays, I live in the west with this obnoxious, beloved husband and a seventy-pound lap-puppy. I’m a gardener, and I love nurturing small plants until they’re big and healthy and productive…and ripping defenseless weeds out by the roots when I’m angry. I enjoy thunderstorms, collecting eggs from the chickens, and visiting the local brewery for the darkest, maltiest beer on tap. My favorite way to spend an evening is curled up on a couch next to the master of my heart, watching the fire, reading, and…well…if you’re reading my books, you obviously know what else happens in front of fires.
