Julia Lyle will have nothing to do with domineering men, no matter how tall, dark, and sexy. But Dom Marcus Cavendish will be satisfied with nothing less than collaring the fiercely independent Julia.

Nothing could have shocked her more…

Julia Lyle is invited to her best friend’s wedding and is stunned when Lana kneels to accept her husband’s collar. When Julia starts to object, firm, relentless hands land on her shoulders. The man behind her threatens to turn her over his knee if she interrupts. She’s outraged, but there’s no doubt he’s serious.

After the ceremony, he offers her a glimpse into her friend’s lifestyle, if she’s brave enough to accept.

Master Marcus Cavendish is everything she doesn’t want in a man—dominant, self-assured and arrogant. So why can’t she resist him?

Telling herself that learning about the lifestyle will make her a better friend, Julia agrees to submit to Master Marcus, but only for the evening. Firm and unrelenting in his handling of her, he introduces her to his tawse and the pleasure/pain of a spanking delivered by a competent Dom. The experience unnerves her, making her question everything she thought she knew about relationships, and his forced orgasms leave her shattered.

No doubt the scene seduced her, and that makes her doubly determined to avoid him. She has fought hard for her freedom and vowed only to date nice men, and Master Marcus is anything but safe.

Marcus is undeterred. Julia is a natural sub. The way she responded to his touch, his voice, his punishment proved it. Now he has to convince her to yield to him, submitting to his tawse as she kneels to accept his collar.

“You might learn that you’re not cut out for this, but you’ll never know if you don’t try.”
How many times have we heard this in our life? Such a true but scary thing to hear. Well Julia Lyle needed to hear that over and over again. Julia has had it up to here with dominant pushy men who want to take over her life. Coming out of an abusive relationship, Julia is only interested in “nice” men. That might change when she meets Master Marcus Cavendish (such a sexy name that just rolls off your tongue.) Master Marcus has been in a committed relationship in the past, but it turned in to something that was too much for him. He is NOT looking to go through that again. Will he change his mind when he encounters the deliciously stubborn Julia Lyle?
“I’d be willing to bet your friend has more orgasms in one night than you’ve likely had in the last six months.”
If you are new to BDSM theme novels, this is a perfect start for you. Julia is a BDSM virgin, and is in shock and awe at some of the things Master Marcus teaches her. It feels like we are taking the journey with Julia…learning what she learns, blushing when she blushes, and saying “Oh HELL no!”  when she is thinking it! I enjoyed the interaction between these two characters. Julia never made it easy on Master, and Master NEVER made it easy on her. Each of them sharing a vulnerable piece of themselves, making their connection grow stronger.
“I have no power other than the power you give me.”
This is my first read from Sierra Cartwright, and I will definitely be searching for more from her. She knows how to keep a girl entertained and informed. Nice guys? Not for me! Just give me Master, please!
Awesome Quote – “When he secured the first clamp onto her nipple, she cried out.” “That, Sir, is a son of a bitch.”
