Very well done. Emotionally gripping story about a young girl who falls in love with the wrong man. She winds up pregnant, hoping for commitment only to find that hero is only interested in the sexual aspect of their relationship. Destitute, alone and unhappy, she runs off to marry his much older cousin so that she can provide a stable and loving home for her children (turns out she has twins).

The story opens when she discovers that her now deceased husband has made the children wards of the he
Very emotional, strong heroine, I love this novel! 4.5 stars

I just reread the book and I felt in love again with this story. One of the reviewers of this book says the evolution of hero's actions and way of thinking was amazing, and that is true. You CAN believe his remorse towards the heroine.
I love heroine's personality and the twins <3
I don't know why I gave the book 4.5 stars, it deserves more than 5 in my opinion ñ_ñ and a gif image :D (let me find the correct one)

Aww that was a very emotional read. I miss Penny Jordan she was the best!

Now speaking plainly, there's a bit of a stigma attached to reading these books - they're all a bit trashy and essentially all the same, and the cover illustration of this - the Uncut edition, featuring a young couple building up to having sex on the beach (not the cocktail), does nothing for the credibility of any reader of this novel. However, this is a great book and, like a lot of Penny Jordan novels, has just that little bit more substance than your average Mills and Boon. I know, I know, i ...more
It was such a beautiful, emotional read. I adored it.
This book has some really good points in it. When something goes on with a relationship you need to talk things over and make decisions then. Gabriel who is a millionaire treats Sasha like crap and when she is at her lowest she runs away and marries an older man.

When he dies she finds out that her late husband has left everything in Gabriel's name, even her kids. Now she knows that he will make her life bad and he just might find her secret out.

So sometimes these books make me scream but I stil
very good one, very intense emotions involved. the flashbacks were very painful n heartbreaking. at one point, sasha told gabriel dat he must want children, he must want 2 get married. he told her dat no but even if he wanted, she was not the woman 4it. she was just a slut, a hooker he had picked up from the streets n he proved it time n again. he treated her like a cheap little tart which he kept 4 sex. n he was angry she left him !? 4 want of a better life !? where she cud have security n resp ...more
Third time reading this book, therefore Master of Pleasure deserves 5 stars.

I seem to always go back to readinf this book for the angst and the heartbreaking story of their past. I like that the heroine grew as a person in order to be a good mother to her twin sons.
Decent read
The story built up very well before revealing that the hero was the father of her twins. Simple mathematics was beyond the hero. Predictably jumped to the wrong conclusion that the heroine cheated on him. I'd have personally liked the hero to grovel a bit more. The ending was quite satisfying. "Uncut" - Now I Know what it means. Phew! some really hot scenes - very well written - suggestively erotic without being vulgar. Some of the emotional scenes brought tears to my eyes.
The turning point is disappointing - very sudden, unconvincing.

I really enjoyed this book. A fast read that was quite unusual. If you are looking for a book that is easy to read this is one you should consider.
