Real Doms terrify her, so Summer plays with lightweights only. And only in the safety of her club, Dark Haven. But on Western Night, the tough cop who wins her in a sub-roping game is as powerful as they come.
Virgil's first taste of BDSM was disturbingly enticing. Hoping to burn out his interest, he visits an infamous San Francisco club, where he wins himself the prettiest little submissive he's ever seen. He's in a quandary. A man shouldn't render a woman helpless, let alone spank her ass. But the nervous little submissive clearly loves being in his ropes. Her need to be controlled is as powerful as his need to control. So he indulges himself, and her.
That one night could be the beginning, but instead it's the end. She won't play outside the club and he lives too far to visit often. He'll just have to find a way to forget her...or get her in his ropes to stay.
Master of the Dark Side is a novella in the Mountain Masters and Dark Haven series by Cherise Sinclair.
There isn’t a lot to say about this one except that you won’t be disappointed. I love this series and whether it’s a full length book or a novella or a paragraph stuffed at the back of a previous book, I’m gonna love it! I love all of the characters! They are all so amazing!
This book hits on the fact that there are men (and probably some women) out there who shouldn’t be Doms/Dommes. They obviously don’t know the true meaning of this particular world and take their urges to dominate a partner too far and use their “assumed status” to abuse them and get away with it. Unless of course you’re trying to get away with it around the Doms of Dark Haven! The fact that Summer was abused in such a way right under the noses of others and managed to claw her way back to being strong and able to trust again is saying a lot about this character… and the master she ends up with might have had a little something to do with it. He made it easy to trust again.
I love Cherise Sinclair and everything she has written so far that I have read. She’s a master herself with words.
