Readers, if a dominating hero and feisty heroine is what you are looking for then stop the search, drop everything and immerse yourself into the world of Dominic Knight, I guarantee that disappointment will not be making an appearance.

I have to say that I think the blurb is little misleading and it makes Dominic out to be some kind of sexual predator who will have Kate whatever her reservations because he’s made up his mind but Dominic is a much more moral character than he is described there and actually fights his attraction to Kate for a long time.

It took me a while to get into this one but when I did it was worth it. It’s got a different feel to a lot of the erotic trilogies out there – these two sparred verbally, back an

Well, can't say I didn't try. But when you have to force yourself to keep reading and still can't get yourself to care for the story or either one of the characters by 50%, time to cut your losses.

Now I know you're probably sitting there and thinking, this chick just DNF'd a super sexy book about a brooding billionaire?!

Well I did.

This may have been a case of BeenThereReadThis-itis for me. I know I will be in the minority with my opinion here, since many absolutely loved this book. Sad

Dominic and Katherine are an intense couple. They meet through work, she knows he's a womanizer, he loves them and leaves them. Kate isn't the type of woman that interest Dominic except- She might be naïve, but she had a self-confident willfulness that intrigued him.

We experience the game of lust, the banter of two strong wills, of 2 charismatic people that are intrigued by one another. One who doesn't compromise but may need to in order to be with the one that doe

Awesome BR with CCGibbsFANS Group - thank you ladies!!

Dominic Knight: rich, sexy, likes to be in control. Kate Hart: strong, indepdant, doesn't like being controlled. These two have amazing chemistry, makes for a incredibly hot read!

Loved this book. Dominic Knight is HAWT, although the ending kind of made me mad, hopefully the next book will work it all out!

Awesome hot sex scenes, sexy billionaire, what's there not to like? ;)

I was lead to believe that this was an Alpha Male, who liked to Dominate and has a certain kind of fetishes and allured his women into that lifestyle and yes there was a certain aspects into that but I will say for me Nick Knight was on the lighter, kinder and gentler Dom but he is not a Master in my eyes.

When Katherine Hart, newest recruit to Knight Enterprises, meets self assured, dominant and totally sexy, self made millionaire and company CEO; Dominic Knight, the sexual chemistry between the two is clearly evident, but Katherine wants to avoid the man she sees as predator, she doesn't want to be just another one of his conquests. Trouble is, Dominic has other ideas and he's not about to just walk away.

4.5 Stars.

Scoot on over Christian and Gideon, there's a new alpha in town! Dominic Knight, 32-year old billionaire CEO of Knight enterprises, may just steal your heart.

Katherine Hart, recent top graduate at MIT, is a specialist in forensic technology. When she is approached by Knight Enterprises to assist in the investigation of shady business in their Amsterdam office, she's very interested. That is, until she meets their CEO. Overhearing him screaming on the phone, throwing out profanities,

The billionaire bachelor story line is a familiar one, you could also say it's been exhausted. So in order to stand out it has to bring something different to the table. I liked this book, and ultimately it did bring something a little different to a sub-genre overflowing with cliches.
Dominic Knight is a billionaire that oversees everything to his company. He's detailed, ruthless, arrogant and doesn't take no for an answer. Women are distractions, play-things, that fill a void and sati

I've had this novel Knight's Mistress lying here in a, by know pretty dusty, paperback since last summer. A friend recommended it and when I heard that the same sweet C.C.

I was really curious as to what the Hype was all about when it came to Mr. Dominick Knight...I mean haven't we all read rich dominant alpha men who don't take no for an answer? Haven't we all read smokin' sex with pure power and submission? Haven't we all read the tale of bad boy falls for good girl before? What makes this so different?

Yep, that is exactly how I felt when C.C. Gibbs threw Dominick Knight in my face. And for once...a female lead who is every bit as powerful as the man who wants

I really enjoyed the writing, the banter and dialogue between Dominic and Kate was fantastic. Kept me on my toes – real witty, smart and at times, had me giggling! Some of my faves:

“Jeez, who would have thought using your vibrator before an interview as a requirement?”

“I’d hate to think you want me only for my impressive size.” “Sorry…but, I’m only in the market for stud service tonight.”

"He was too perfect, she wanted him too much, it was madness."

I have to say that Dominic Knight is everything Christian Grey wishes he could be. When I read an erotica book for the first time years ago it written by Susan Johnson, and I have loved her work ever since. Now that I look back I realize that since I started reading ebooks I haven't read anything written by her so as soon as I say my dear friend Wendy reading and raving about this book I just had to read it.

First of all - thank you for the signed copy! Won via Goodreads First Reads. This has in no way altered my judgement of this book and my review is honest.

I thought Knight's Mistress was going to be just another 50-Shades-esque book. The beginning was deja-vu - intimidating-billionaire-interview, instant-attraction and inner monologues. But it's not. This book is different. This book is real.

Knight's Mistress is set over a few short days, but just like falling in love those few short days seem to
