Raised a tough-as-nails military brat, Anne hates two things—not being accepted as equal to a man, and change. So she takes charge of her surroundings, her life, and especially her submissives. As a “bounty hunter,” she leads the fugitive recovery team. And if an occasional wife abuser incurs a bruise or two on his return to jail? Oops.
A discharged Army Ranger, Ben considers his job as a BDSM club security guard to be an excellent hobby. He has never been tempted to join in…until Anne inadvertently reveals the caring heart concealed beneath her Mistress armor.
Now, he’s set his sights on the beautiful Domme. Maybe he’d considered himself vanilla, but she can put her stiletto on his chest any day, any time. He’ll trust her delicate hands to hold his heart. And if she wants to whip his ass on the way to an outstanding climax, he’s just fine with that too.
Sure, he knows she likes “pretty boy” subs. And he’s older. Craggy and rough. And six-five. Minor hindrances. The mission is a go.
As of 14 Apr, per Cherise's newsletter: I’m deep into writing Servicing the Target, the next book in the Masters of the Shadowlands series. Honestly, I’ve been postponing writing a book about Mistress Anne because of those pretty boys who follow her around. So not my thing.
But then Ben—yes, I mean Ben the over-sized, rough-looking Shadowlands security guard—told me he was going to make his move.
I had a fit. “Oh, please. Seriously, Ben? Are you out of your friggin’ mind?” I told him he was vanilla. That she likes younger men. Gorgeous slim ones.
He didn’t listen. And when an ex-Army Ranger sets his sights on a target…everyone had best step out of the way.
As of 12 Feb, per Cherise's blog: Ben–the security guard–says he’s interested in spending time with Mistress Anne. (Seriously?) I told him he’s out of his mind. But he’s stubborn.
And then Master Z informed me that it’s time for Jessica to have that baby of theirs. A woman in labor versus the Master of Masters. Hmmm....more
Just spotted the blurb on Amazon and now I'm even more impatient about the wait for this one! "... Jane Doe, a girl with no memory of who she is ..."Just spotted the blurb on Amazon and now I'm even more impatient about the wait for this one! "... Jane Doe, a girl with no memory of who she is ..." O.O What?!? At least we have Eighth Grave After Dark to look forward to in May.
In a small village in New York lives Jane Doe, a girl with no memory of who she is or where she came from. So when she is working at a diner and slowly begins to realize she can see dead people, she's more than a little taken aback. Stranger still are the people entering her life. They seem to know things about her. Things they hide with lies and half-truths. Soon, she senses something far darker. A force that wants to cause her harm, she is sure of it. Her saving grace comes in the form of a new friend she feels she can confide in and the fry cook, a devastatingly handsome man whose smile is breathtaking and touch is scalding. He stays close, and she almost feels safe with him around.
But no one can outrun their past, and the more lies that swirl around her-even from her new and trusted friends-the more disoriented she becomes, until she is confronted by a man who claims to have been sent to kill her. Sent by the darkest force in the universe. A force that absolutely will not stop until she is dead. Thankfully, she has a Rottweiler. But that doesn't help in her quest to find her identity and recover what she's lost. That will take all her courage and a touch of the power she feels flowing like electricity through her veins. She almost feels sorry for him. The devil in blue jeans. The disarming fry cook who lies with every breath he takes. She will get to the bottom of what he knows if it kills her. Or him. Either way.

I'm super excited for the next full book, The Virgin, to get the full lowdown on what's mentioned here.
(view spoiler)[ Griffin had inherited The 8th Circle from Kingsley. The club was his responsibility and it took more of his time than Griffin ever dreamed it would. Wrangling wayward submissives and putting pro-Doms into place and planning private parties and wooing new clients…Griffin had a new respect for Kingsley after all that. It was fun, empowering. And Griffin loved it. But what he hadn’t loved was the time it took away from him and Mick.
Nico. King’s son. She’s [Nora's] fucking King’s son Nico. Not just fucking him. She collared him. She owns him.
King and Søren are together again. Like for real for real. Which is why Søren’s so happy and horny all the time, and Nora’s so happy and horny, because she had a sub now and it’s…oh my God, it’s insane. Søren has King and Nora. Nora has Søren and Nico and King has Juliette and Søren and it’s like the sexiest love hexagon ever. (hide spoiler)]
“Christmas in Suite 37A”: Part 1 : Blue Christmas Read @ 16 Dec 2014 (view spoiler)[Griffin is staying with Nora. Mick has left for Europe. He requested no contact and, so far, Grif has been able to respect his wish. But, it's been 3 months and he's aching for his sub.
Nora takes Grif to Søren's Christmas Mass. While there, she convinces him that he should at least text Mick and see what happens. (hide spoiler)]
Part 2 : Silver Bells Read @ 19 Dec 2014 (view spoiler)[Griffin rec'd a reply to his text. Mick has agreed to meet him. He's over the moon and believes it to be an answered Christmas wish.
Determined to make the time together special, he asks Mick to meet him at a place that holds a lot of meaning for Grif - Suite 37A at the Waldorf.
Mick and Grif share a meal, chat about what's happened to both during their separation. Mick explains why it was important for him to leave:
“Nora…” Mick began and met Griffin’s eyes. “She told me a long time ago that the reason she left Father S was because there was someone she needed to be, and she couldn’t be that person and be with Father S at the same time. And that’s why I asked for the break from you. Because there was someone I had to be, and you weren’t letting me be him.”
Part 3 : White Christmas Read @ 22 Dec 2014 (view spoiler)[Mick and Grif retire to Suite 37A. Griffin gives Mick his present. It's a letter he wrote ten years ago. He knows he wrote it for Mick.
Dear Whoever is Reading This, I'm in love with you.
I don't know you yet, but I'm going to keep this letter until I meet you.
While staying with King, Griffin, in a coke-induced haze, wrecked his home. King took him to the Waldorf, this very suite 37A, and asked Griffin if he had anything worth living for. Griffin's answer, 'You.' So, the night before heading to rehab, Grif wrote this letter knowing that one day he would find his love.
The two, having worked through the issues that lead to the separation are Dom and sub once again.

Sinclair's Master of Freedom tells the story of Virginia Cunningham, a social worker and southern sweetheart, and Atticus Ware, a local Detective andSinclair's Master of Freedom tells the story of Virginia Cunningham, a social worker and southern sweetheart, and Atticus Ware, a local Detective and Dom talented in rope work. Up until now, Gin's been lead to believe BDSM wasn't real, but rather made-up, sexy stories created solely to sell books. When her new friends invite her to the Hunts' Serenity Lodge as a way to observe a BDSM instruction course in exchange for some help with camp chores she jumps at the chance. It's there that she meets the "oddly familiar" Atticus, the "Cowboy Dom" who lassos her heart (yeah, I went there, couldn't resist).
Men - walking, talking proof that God is a sadist.
As with all of Cherise's stories, there are barriers to be brought down, misunderstandings to work through, unfortunate circumstances to battle. And, in the end, the reward is the start of a deep, all-consuming, loving relationship.
Settling down with one of her stories is like being cocooned in a warm blanket. Her writing draws you in immediately and her characters keep you enthralled. She always does a wonderful job of telling the D/s love story as well as including the side characters fans of her series have come to love. For that all too short time it takes to read her books, she'll remind you how rewarding honesty and openness can truly be. Cherise Sinclair is a master storyteller.
To top it off, she provides us with the blurb and a sneak peek of Servicing the Target, her next Masters of the Shadowlands book (28 July 2015), which features Shadowlands security guard, Ben and Mistress Anne. I cannot wait to read their story!...more
