Tilly Cardinal's world imploded when her master, Cris, disappeared with no explanation other than a short, cryptic note releasing her as his slave. Five years later, she's Mistress Cardinal, a vicious, successful pro domme charging big bucks to dish out whatever abuse men will pay to take. Materially, she wants for nothing. Privately, she's never felt more alone.
In walks Landry LaCroux, a handsome, rich man with a proposition - he wants Tilly to train his slave. Landry holds the key to Tilly's past, and her future. She's shocked to discover Landry's slave is her former master, Cris. Landry has a secret - he has cancer and wants to make Tilly a deal. Marry him and help him through his recovery, and he'll pay her handsomely for it.
Love wasn't supposed to be part of the bargain, but can the three of them find healing and a lasting happiness under Cardinal's Rule?

I love this story. I had read it before. However, the narration was very sweet, rather like a lady reading a bedtime story to a child, not a person reading a hot, passionate bdsm story. There was no distinction between the characters, etc. Heather Buttler has a nice voice, that's why I finally rated it a 2 star performance rather than a 1 star. Would I spend money on the audible again, probably not. Just read the book.
I haven't even finished the audio book. I've read this book several time, but sometimes I like to have audio too. If I had heard this lady's voice first I would have hated this book. This lady does not do Tilly's character justice. She is such a huge part of this series and so vibrant. The narrator is just dull and doesn't do this book justice.
Her voice just irritated me--I won't buy anything she narrates in the future--even if I love the author's work.
I read the Kindle version of this book and love it. However, the narrator ruined my perception of Tilly, and I had to re-read the book to get her true essence back in my mind. She is a pivotal character in this series; therefore, I needed to find the real Tilly again before I could continue to enjoy the series.
