Whenever I ask for BDSM recommendations, I am told the same two words all the time: Cherise Sinclair. ~ Under the Covers Reviews

Authors often say their characters argue with them. Unfortunately, since Cherise Sinclair’s heroes are Doms, she never, ever wins.

A New York Times and USA Today bestselling author, she’s renowned for writing heart-wrenching romances with laugh-out-loud dialogue, devastating Dominants, and absolutely sizzling sex. And did I mention the BDSM? Her awards include a National Leather Award, Romantic Times Reviewer’s Choice nomination, and Best Author of the Year from the Goodreads BDSM group.

Fledglings having flown the nest, Cherise, her beloved husband, and one fussy feline live in the Pacific Northwest where nothing is

Cherise Sinclair, Master of the Mountain

“It's hard for an educated woman to turn her head off. That's part of the joy of being a submissive. None of the decisions are yours. When you can't refuse anything and can't even move, those voices in your head go silent. All you can do, and all you are permitted to do, is feel.”

message 48: by Cherise

Cherise Sinclair Natasha, I'm so glad you're enjoying my books--and I love finding out which books you liked the most. :-)

For your question about Saxon, yes, he'll probably get a book--apparently a lot of people are interested in puppy play. lol But Master Holt is up next when I get back to the Shadowlands. He's had a rough time and needs someone special.


message 47: by Natasia

Natasia Hello, Thank you for accepting my friend request :D

I really wanted to thank you for all of the great books you have written. I have read most of them multiple times, and I'm especially fond of "To command and Collar", "This is who I am", "My Liege of Dark Haven", "Master of the Abyss", "Edge of the Enforcer" and "Servicing the Target".

I'm as always looking forward to your next book. I saw on your website that it is about Sawyer, and I really liked him in "Master of Freedom", but I am curious to see what kind of woman will reach him.

There is something that I have been wanting to ask you forever though. Ever since he was introduced in "Show me, Baby", I have been very interested in Saxon, the Dom who is a veterinarian and also into puppy play. Is there any chance he might get a book of his own, or will I just have to lust for him from afar?
I know it is probably far fetched, but after having re-read large parts of the series again, I just had to ask ;)

Actually, I've considered it, but decided that I push enough boundaries with the kink and power exchanges. So I try not to break the unspoken reader-author "contract" where y'all know what you'll get from me. I'll let secondary characters have M/m and F/f relationships, but the main action will stay het. :-)

message 42: by Cherise

Cherise Sinclair Oh, sheesh, I don't understand why Goodreads never mentions that someone commented here! Sorry I didn't see this sooner!

So...since Dix already found his love, he won't get his own book. But I'll try to keep y'all up to date with how his relationship is going. (They're awfully sweet together, aren't they?) :-)

Pam Smith Hi Cherise,
I've fallen in love with the Masters series and I was wondering if Dix is going to get his own book?

Cherise Sinclair Thanks you, April!

And Sara--I'm so glad you enjoyed Natural Law. :-) Happy reading!


message 39: by Sara

Sara Bunch Thank you so much for the recommendation. I really enjoyed "Natural Law". I am looking forward to reading about Mistress Anne. Your books are awesome and I'm so glad I got the chance to ask you questions (awesome thing about Goodreads!).

I'm going to read some of your other books. I've only read the Club Shadowlands and I loved them. I look forward to reading more !

~Sara


message 38: by April

April Thank you so much for accepting my friend request! I've enjoyed all of the Masters of the Shadowlands! I read them all in just over a week and a half! I couldn't put my kindle down! Your writing is amazing! I can't wait to read Sally's story and hopefully more to come!


message 37: by Cherise

Cherise Sinclair Che, I'm so glad you're enjoying the Shadowlands! --even if you started at the far end. lol Bear in mind that the books started very short and then seemed to gain around 10,000 words with each book. So you'll be going from long to short. ;-)


message 36: by YelleOh (last edited Sep 20, 2013 11:29PM)

YelleOh Hey Cherise thanks so much for the add. I don't often read BDSM themed story and I'm very selective about it, I usually only read mild themed and tame ones. But yours dragged me out of my comfort zone and surprise! surprise! I loved your Masters of the Shadowlands series--Marcus was my first Shadowlands master and there's no turning back ever since, I've already met Master R and master Sam, and I've yet to meet Master Z, Nolan, Dan and Cullen. Can't wait to read cute Sally's turn though. Kudos to a great series.


message 35: by Crystal

Crystal Just wanna say thanks for the add! Your books are my guilty pleasure...........and I LOVE them!!!!!! :)


message 34: by Cherise

Cherise Sinclair Filipa, thank you! Less than a month until the next Shadowlands releases and I'm starting to get nervous.


message 33: by Filipa

Filipa Hello Cherise,
Thank you so much for accepting my friend request it means a lot to me ^^ I have been reading your books since last year and god help me they're so good I love them! I eagerly await the release of your next book, hope you and your family are doing well :)


message 32: by Cherise

Cherise Sinclair Thanks, Manjula! And woohoo, I do have a date! *happy dancing* If all goes well, Sam's story--Shadowlands 7: This Is Who I Am will--come out on May 28th.

I swear, Sally’s book will be much faster from start to release!


**Manjula ♥ Connor Cobalt** Hi Cherise,
I can't wait for your next book. I keep stalking your website hoping that something will change on the "Coming soon" page.. :)
Any dates you'd care to share? So I can mark my calendar!

Cherise Sinclair Thanks, Kathy!

My publisher and I ended up in negotiations, so the scheduling is messed up. Hopefully, I'll have a release date soon.

Kathy I can't for Master Sam's story! Love your books Cherise.

Cherise Sinclair Thanks, Carna!

Carna Thank you so much for the add. Am waiting with baited breath for Master Sam's story!!!


message 21: by Cherise

Cherise Sinclair I'm at 50 thousand words for Master Sam's story, so it's coming along. Linda just discovered the dangers of hanging with the Shadowlands submissives for Jessica's bachelorette party.

I'm hoping for a late winter release, but that's dependent on the publisher's schedule, so no promises yet. :-)


Christine Master Sam & I need a date ASAP when can we hang with the Masters of the Shadowlands ?!! The wait is killing me!!

Chryssa Thank you for accepting my friend invite!

Selinalynn Thanks for the friend add. I just discovered your books from another fan of yours and I started on The Dom's Dungeon. I love it the story made me feel sweet and tender.
I have now ventured into Club Shadowlands. I think I might have to sign up for membership!


 * Kazzy * -aka Stryker- Thanks for 'friending' me Cherise.... I just had to say how much I loved Masters of the Shadowlands... I just finished To Command and Collar and WOW it was amazing. I went through so many emotions, and Master Raoul is most definitely my fav, such a hottie! Loved Nolan and Z too, hell I wouldn't kick any of them out of bed actually LOL!

Your writing is awesome, and Shadowlands has left me very curious! I see from your website we are gonna see Sam's story and maybe the FBI cops too, i'm so excited, I had begged you for those in my review LOL... can't wait to read more! Thanks for such a great series.

I hope you'll let me know if they come up to your expectations. I adore Joey Hill's books too. But I'll have to give Sydney a look. :-)
