Threatened by university cutbacks, Professor Abigail Bern's only hope is to publish a provocative research paper - soon. Planning to covertly observe behavior in the notorious Dark Haven BDSM club, she takes a receptionist job. When the owner calls upon her to assist in a demonstration, she's appalled. Then fascinated. Under the unyielding hands of the master known as my Liege, she discovers a need to be more than an observer.
His late wife had been the center of his life, and Xavier Leduc wants no other. But when his new receptionist does her utmost to keep an emotional distance from him, he's intrigued and digs deeper. She's adorable. Intriguingly intelligent, beautifully submissive, sweetly vulnerable. He soon realizes her defenses are keeping her on the fringe of her sexuality - and her life. As he draws her into fuller participation, she unconsciously does the same for him. She begins to fill his world.
Ever since the night she met my Liege Xavier, Abby has questioned everything she believes about herself. She's falling for the stern owner of Dark Haven and thinks he's beginning to care for her, until the day he learns why she's in his club.

A total " page turner"-- I couldn't stop listening. Wish there was a sequel. Now to enlarge my library!
When you add two great voice actors with a story by a great author, you get magic. I read the story some time ago, and it was great. However, pairing the story with two great voice actors like Kai Kennicott and Wen Ross just brought the whole thing to life. Is it worth the credit, YES. Do yourself a favor and pick this one up.
This is my favorite book of this entire series so far ! Cherise Sinclair you are amazing !! Kai Kennicott and Wen Ross to an amazing job narrating as always!! I'm so in love work this whole series 💜💜
Love the plot and the characters.
Wen Ross, the male narrator, is just dreadful. He makes Xavier sound like a young Bela Lugosi as Dracula. I was hard-pressed to listen to the entire book and I LOVE anything by Cherise Sinclair. The narrator for her Shadowlands books - Noah Michael Levine - is FAR superior.
I waited a long time for Xavier's story, and it was worth the wait. I think Abby was a great fit for him. I think Sinclair's strength is her empathetic characters that make you feel an immediate connection to them. Of course, Kennicott and Ross bring these characters to life like no other narrators I've ever heard. One word of warning, though. There is a long punishment scene that I really struggled listening to. It seemed excessive and too long, but it's possible that it may not bother other readers/listeners. Other than that, I absolutely loved the audiobook.
I am really enjoying books by this author. For me she ranks up there with the best
I really liked Abby. She took responsibility for her actions but didn't give up on Xavier.
I really enjoy a strong male voice with one of these books. It makes the story much more believable.
I was moved when Abby was forgiven by the members of the club.
awesome story great characters great performance I could not get enough of this book. Xavier was so hot and dreamy and Abby was so real with her insecurities almost gave me hope for finding my Xavier Sunday
The heroine ( Abby) was annoying. As for her being 'intriguingly intelligent', think again...
Master Xavier, the Dom all subs want, has not committed to any one woman since his wife’s death four years before.
The BDSM in this tale is hot. The games Ms. Sinclair devises are so hot!!!! It's because they involve a pursuit and capture theme with a fun kinky twist.
Between the erotic journey and personal issues resolved, this story ends in a trademark Ms. Sinclair happily ever after. Its a very educational story about BDSM lifestyle.
This is one of my favorite Dark Haven storylines and this narration made it even better!.
Eureka! I can finally recommend buying a narration by Wen Ross. His two previous Dark Haven/ Mountain Masters narrations were abysmal. This one shows the emotion of the male characters as well as distinctive speech patterns and accents. Kai Kennicott's usual excellent narrations were even better. Looking forward to the next one.
If you like erotic romance, Cherise Sinclair is the "tops"! Great storylines told with wit, humor, and incredibly vivid erotic scenes
Love this book ,i have read it several times . I decided to try the. Audio version , it was just as great . Although i did think Xavier's voice sound more like a vampire rather then British accent ,it was still a very hot story as Xavier is my favorite of all .
So don't miss out on a sexy well written and SEXY story.
