Derek Brighton has become one of Dallas’s finest detectives through a combination of discipline and obsession. Once he has a target in his sights, nothing can stop him. When he isn’t solving homicides, he applies the same intensity to his playtime at Sanctum, a secretive BDSM club. Unfortunately, no amount of beautiful submissives can fill the hole that one woman left in his heart.


Karina Mills has a reputation for being reckless, and her clients appreciate her results. As a private investigator, she pursues her cases with nothing holding her back. In her personal life, Karina yearns for something different. Playing at Sanctum has been a safe way to find peace, but the one Dom who could truly master her heart is out of reach.


On the hunt for a killer, Derek enters a shadowy underworld only to find the woman he aches for is working the same case. Karina is searching for a missing girl and won’t stop until she finds her. To get close to their prime suspect, they need to pose as a couple. But as their operation goes under the covers, unlikely partners become passionate lovers while the killer prepares to strike.


 First and foremost I would like to say THANK YOU LEXI BLAKE for bringing a character like Derek Brighton into my life. I knew I was going to immediately fall in love with that man. There is nothing sexier than a man who can turn you into a puddle with such a simple act as brushing a piece of rope up and down your skin while whispering how he plans to take care of you. I am getting goosebumps again just thinking about it. I’m no stranger to the Masters and Mercenaries Series by the amazing Lexi Blake. This series, as well as the rest of Lexi Blake’s work, continues to leave me breathless. There is just something about these characters that make you want to jump in the page and devour them. I don’t think I will ever get enough of these honest, sexy, demanding men. Vivid, emotional, and suspenseful, this Masters and Mercenaries novella packs just as much punch as a full length novel. 

The word relationship has been vacant from Derek Brighton’s vocabulary ever since his wife screwed him over. The woman he thought he fell in love with, was nothing but a snake. A snake who ruined him for any true love in his future. Derek is no stranger to Sanctum. He has played with his fair share of submissives, but no one has him in more knots than Karina Mills. She intrigues and infuriates him, but more importantly, she makes him feel again. She brings out the Uber Dom in him, and no matter how much she pushes back, he will see to it, that she is in his bed.

Karina Mills is one hell of a PI. The way she goes about getting results are not always pretty, but you can’t fault her, because she gets shit done. She goes to Sanctum to get what she needs, but she is still searching for something more. Derek Brighton wants to feel needed, but Karina is just too independent and too stubborn to give him what he wants. You would think this relationship is doomed to fail given their past, but the pull between the two is too strong to deny. When a case forces them to work together, lines are blurred, loyalties are tested, and true feelings reveal themselves in the worst of times.  Will going undercover as a D/s couple show them what they are missing? Or will it confirm the inevitable? 

Lexi Blake fans REJOICE and be prepared to be captivated from beginning to end. Dungeon Games will keep you entertained with the wittiness of the characters as well as appearances from some of your favorites. I will forever be enamored with this series, and I know you will too. Great sex and just the right amount of heart, Dungeon Games and the entire Masters and Mercenaries Series will always be a MUST READ for me.
