With an empty nest and divorce in hand, Rona decides it's time to explore the fantasies that nourished her through a long, tedious marriage to a man whose idea of outrageous sex was leaving the lights on. At the top of her fantasy list is touring Dark Haven, the BDSM club, but she isn't prepared for the effect of a powerful Dom. When Master Simon takes control and introduces her to toys and sensations she's never felt before, she realizes he could fulfil every fantasy on her list all by himself. But she's vowed to never get trapped in a relationship again.
One of the most popular Doms in Dark Haven, Master Simon has had his fill of eager, shallow, young subs. Rona is older, intelligent, independent, and sweetly submissive. After an evening of intense pleasure and despite her obvious attraction, she refuses to see him again. He needs a way to change her mind. She's not the first sub he's taken on a journey of exploration, but he's beginning to think she might be the last.

N.Y. Times Bestselling Author
Absolutely! It was hot and wonderfully written.
Wen Ross and Kai Kennicott are amazing storytellers. They always manage to suck you in from the beginning to the very end no matter what book they're narrating.
This was the first book I have listened to by this author, but it certainly won't be the last. Even though this was a short book it kept my attention and still had enough detail so I didn't feel like I was missing something. I can't wait to listen another book by Cherise Sinclair.
I would definitely do another Cherise Sinclair book and something by Kai Kennicott. Had issues with Wen Ross' performance however. Was surprised it went past the producer of this audiobook. His performance lacked any enthusiasm or was very bland. He also sounded nothing like I imagined Simon to sound from reading his story originally. Of course that's my personal thing.
I actually developed a new appreciation for Rona after reading this book. She seems very independent and compassionate.
Kai Kennicott did a great job differentiating the characters. I had no problem telling the difference based on her using her different accents and inflections. She was great.
Wen Ross needs some work. I had no idea which man was speaking half the time because I couldn't tell the difference.
Yes, mostly because it's a great story.
Chapter breaks moved too fast. Needs to be more of a pause.
I would. Over all a good audio book.
I liked that it was about a mature woman. Not one of those 18-22 year olds that are so common now a days.
The male narrator should have been replaced. I hated his voice, especially when he voiced Simon. When he was reading the in between parts he was ok. He had a distinctive "Simon Legree" "Dick Dastardly" tone to his voice that really got on my nerves. Female narrator was very good.
Simon says: "Are you Ready?"
It was a good listen that could have been great with the right male narrator. (Where was Noah?). Still worth listening too. In all fairness, some people really liked the guy. You either loved him or hated him. Sadly, I'm in the later group.
Loved Simmons story and the voice of Rona sounded exactly as I would have pictured her sounding.
great story just to short because I love me some Cherise sinclair books!
This was pleasant and solid and enjoyable, but just felt slight, as though there wasn't much to it beyond some steamy sex and a little mild relationship drama. It's hot writing as you would expect from Cherise Sinclair, but because of the novella length, lacked the deep "out of the bedroom" relationship stuff, which always adds to the erotic level.
I recommend this book to fans of Cherise Sinclair.
Anything by Cherise Sinclair is an autobuy for me. I enjoyed this Novella very much. One of the things I think that makes this one stand out is that both Simon and Rona are more mature and it's a pleasure to read a story where there is not so much unpredictable flighty emotional reactions of younger couples. I also like that Simon was the one pursuing Rona. With very few sentences Cherise was able to convey the fact that Simon was a man who knew what he wanted and went after it.
Simon's arms- Loved the homage to those of us who love arm porn. Loved the fact that Simon saw Rona's mature body was beautiful with it attendant signs of motherhood past.
The Ross / Kennicott combination of reader's was very good. The female voice was strong and there was plenty of variety when she did other voices. The male voice was Dom like to me and pleasure to listen to. Quite resonant.
I was so excited to see a new Cherise Sinclair come out. Then I listened and am now disappointed.. First, although the male narrator's voice is pleasant, it has a distinctive quality that he is unable to change or disguise. It got so bad towards the end that I wouldn't have known who was talking if the story hadn't identified them. Second, it sounded like he was just reading a story out loud. There was no appreciable change in the character's voice throughout the narration. No emotional interest or involvement expressed.
The only reason I gave it a 3 is because the female narrator did a great job. She made Rona, as well as the other female characters, come alive.
