In this sizzling continuation of the Mastered series by New York Times bestselling author Lorelei James, a man will find the domination he’s always craved…

Shiori Hirano and Knox Lofgren are left to run the martial arts program at Black Arts while Ronin Black travels. On the surface, the two highest ranked belts appear to cooperate—but in private, they butt heads constantly, despite the undeniable attraction between them. Soon their power exchanges start to make for a sweltering dynamic in the bedroom…

At first Knox is shocked to be living out his submissive desires, but Shiori sets out to prove that embracing his true sexual nature doesn’t make him a weak man. But even while their sexual relationship grants him a power and fulfillment he finds surprising, there’s no training regimen for the fight that comes with loving a strong woman…


For me, the name Lorelei James is synonymous with rough, sexy cowboys and badass women who drive them crazy! So when I heard about Ms. James’ MASTERED series, I was ecstatic to read something new from one of my GO TO authors. Now, I was a little late to the game, and started with UNRAVELED, Book 3 in the series, but it was fine because it can totally be read as a standalone for sure! After becoming so enamored with Shiori Hirano and Knox Lofgren, the amazing lead characters in UNRAVELED, I can safely say that Ms. James’ can DO NO WRONG!  The name Lorelei James is NOW synonymous with BDSM Romance.

With UNRAVELED, this author gives us a scorching, intense love story of two people trying to figure out who they are with and without each other. It’s raw, emotional, and very complex. It sets the bar for BDSM Romance for sure.

Shiori is a woman so determined to bring out the submissive nature in the VERY alpha, Knox Lofgren. She feels the pull of their connection, and she will stick to her guns to make him acknowledge the submissive within. Knox is as alpha, strong, and protective as they come, so when he feels the urge to do anything to please this woman who stands before him, he is somewhat perplexed. A proposition is struck, so let the games begin. This connection, this pull that they feel for one another, has them questioning everything. Just when they are moving forward, something happens that pushes them three steps back.

Spending more time with each other, learning their ways, opening up their hearts and exposing their souls bring them that much closer to a happily ever after.

The push/pull, love/hate, competitive nature of these two characters make this story suspenseful and enticing. A beautiful, erotic, and luscious romance, UNRAVELED will take you on a unique journey full of kinky goodness! Lorelei James is one of a kind, and she continues to blow me away with her writing.

About Lorelei James

Lorelei James is the New York Times and USA Today Bestselling Author of contemporary erotic western romances set in the modern day Wild West and also contemporary erotic romances. Lorelei’s books have been nominated for and won the Romantic Times Reviewer’s choice Award, as well as the CAPA Award. Lorelei lives in western South Dakota with her family…and a whole closet full of cow girl boots.

Why do I have a particular fondness for all things western? Well, I’m a fourth generation South Dakotan, living in the Black Hills, which is chock-full of interesting characters, including cowboys, Indians, ranchers, and bikers. The geographical diversity of the surrounding area showcases mountains, plains, and badlands. Living in and writing about rural settings gives me a unique perspective, especially since I’m not writing historical westerns. Through my fictional world, I can show the ideals and the cowboy way of life are still very much alive.
