Publisher's Summary

Real Doms terrify her, so Summer plays with lightweights only. And only in the safety of her club, Dark Haven. But on Western Night, the tough cop who wins her in a sub-roping game is as powerful as they come.

Virgil's first taste of BDSM was disturbingly enticing. Hoping to burn out his interest, he visits an infamous San Francisco club, where he wins himself the prettiest little submissive he's ever seen. He's in a quandary. A man shouldn't render a woman helpless, let alone spank her ass. But the nervous little submissive clearly loves being in his ropes. Her need to be controlled is as powerful as his need to control. So he indulges himself, and her.

That one night could be the beginning, but instead it's the end. She won't play outside the club and he lives too far to visit often. He'll just have to find a way to forget her or get her in his ropes to stay.

great story

I love these voices on these books. I'm not good at writing reviews but I will always do my best. there was only one part I didn't like about it was the abuse the lady went through. Thank you for this story.

All I can say is WOW!

This was my first Kai/Wen audio and it will absolutely not be my last. They are utterly amazing together. Wen has such a great deep alpha voice that is perfectly suited to a Dom. Kai puts such emotions into all of her words that you can feel them right along with her. The book is fantastic, well written with such heat and passion, but has tons of emotion and feels. The perfect balance. Looking forward to reading more from Cherise Sinclair and listening to more from Kai and Wen!

Good story.

I love Cherise Sinclair's work but this Mountain Masters and Dark Haven series is a lot shorter than the Masters of the Shadowlands series and I find I am not as satisfied with the endings in this one.

Also the male narrator Wen Ross is not my favorite. Noah Michael Levine from the Shadowlands series is fantastic so maybe I just got use to him but I find I don't listen as enthusiastically to this male narrator. The female narrator Kai Kennicot on the other hand is decent and it is easier to listen to. If she had not done the narration after book 1 I probably would not have continued listening.

Loved it!

This is a very exciting story and Wen Ross conveniences me that he is a Dom with that sexy voice of his. Kai Kennicott is the perfect narrator to match him! I loved it!

Perfect Match

I think it was interesting to see someone who isn't even sure about his interest in BDSM have such a natural way with it. Also, to see someone who had some very real fears relax with this unknown Dom. It is reminder that books are fiction and in this fictional world sometimes the chemistry just clicks and two people seem fated for each other. That doesn't take away from the enjoyment of the story. I loved rooting for this couple. I love Summer feisty side and her strength when taking on the good doctor.

Good enough

After listening to the Shadowlands books I enjoying Sinclair’s other books I really appreciate the ones that are not “club oriented” after Shadowlands.

Another series by Cherise Sinclair that gets better as it evolves

As each story of the Mountain Masters/Dark Haven series is done they just get better. Summer and Virgil has to be one of my favorite and Ms. Sinclair has picked two incredible narrators for this series too. A must have audible series.

Beautiful

I loved this story to the moon and back. And the performances just added to the enjoyment of the story.

When I read I hear the characters but to actually hear the characters well it's amazing and Kai & Wen do an amazing job that really makes you feel as if you there with them.

So can't wait for the next one

My Two Pennies

I actually want to give this book a 4.5 in the ratings. In this story we get more into Virgil and Summer, you remember Summer from the previous book while at the party her Dom was completely out of control and didn't stop when she used her safe word. Well we get to see what develops between these two. Virgil is new to the BDSM world and highly curious even though as an officer he feels that it's wrong to an extent. The connection between these two is safe, strong and beautiful. Summer has a fight within herself about trusting anyone after her previous experience. This was a great read and so happy with their story.

A different aspect

I really liked how we see how a new Dom grows in his role. It’s something that I’ve not read before as the Dom’s are usually already experienced. Great writing and fantastic performances.
