Since childhood, Mallory McCabe has dreamed of falling in love with a hero. And then one saves her life. He’s honest…and blunt. Deadly, but filled with pain. Overpowering, yet ever so gentle with her. Oh yes, she’s found her hero. Taking him to her bed is simply…right. As is losing her heart.
How could she have known he’d want nothing more to do with her?
His indifference hurts. She vows to forget him…then he buys the land next to hers.
Released early from prison, all Sawyer Ware wants is to put his life back together. His police detective brother houses him while he makes plans. But when a violent gang targets his brother, Sawyer puts his future on hold. He’ll have to take on the gang first. After a decade as a Navy SEAL, he won’t–can’t–walk away if someone he loves is threatened.
His mission is likely to prove bloody. He sure can’t afford to get involved with a woman, especially his captivating neighbor. He hungers to be near her, to enjoy her clear laugh, her easy friendship, and the peace she brings wherever she goes. A relationship is absolutely out of the question.
Why won’t his heart obey orders?
Oh how I’ve missed this erotic and sensual world that Cherise Sinclair created some time ago. Mallory McCabe and Sawyer Ware were EVERYTHING you guys…EVERYTHING! A tortured soul, and a woman who wants nothing but to heal his heart. This journey was one of passion and emotion. It poured off of every page and I couldn’t put it down for even a second.
“Tonight you have a safe word – and nothing else.”
MASTER OF SOLITUDE can be read as a standalone, but if you are familiar with the series, then you know why I’m completely gushing over Sawyer. This man has been through hell and he is now trying to find a place where he belongs. Just when he is about to branch off on his own journey, he realizes that his brother needs him, and his future, once again, is put on hold. When he stumbles upon the beautiful Mallory, he knows that she is too good for the likes of him, but she is a persistent little thing, and will not let him go that easy. No matter how hard he pushes her away, he can’t get the little spitfire out of his mind. She is strong-willed and just bursting with sassiness that just does EVERYTHING for him. But he will do what it takes to protect his family and her, even if it’s from himself. It’s only when he stops pushing, when he realizes he already found his home and his future, and it was in front of him all along.
“I love you…my captain.”
Cherise Sinclair was one of the authors that brought me into the world of BDSM Romance, and I’ve never looked back. MASTER OF SOLITUDE is a passionate and emotional journey full of hope, self-discovery, and love. I devoured this enticing and sensual romance in one night and let me tell you, it was so hard to say good-bye to these characters and this town. I know we will meet again. I know Ms. Sinclair is far from over with this series (at least I hope she is!) but it doesn’t make it any less hard to turn the final page. This story was beautiful. These characters were amazing. Their journey was EVERYTHING! I couldn’t have asked for a better installment to one of my favorite BDSM series!
