Broken by betrayal, one woman holds the secret to his redemption…

An agent broken

MI6 agent Damon Knight prided himself on always being in control. His missions were executed with cold, calculating precision. His club, The Garden, was run with an equally ordered and detached decadence. But his perfect world was shattered by one bullet, fired from the gun of his former part

Sex isn't polite, Penelope. Sex is dirty and nasty and raw. I want you rough. I'm a bloody man and you're going to treat me like one. And I'm going to show you just how much of a woman you are.

This series has been a go to of mine whenever I need a hot BDSM read with a great plot and some action and suspense thrown into the mix. And it seems to only get better and better with each new book.

Dungeon Royale starts off immediately where Love and Let Die ended, with Damon being be
I enjoyed this book, but the romance lacked intimacy.
Another good story from Lexi Blake and a better one than the last three books in this series. Ian Taggart is still my favorite hero among all of these spy-heroes. Damon Knight could have been my top pick but somehow I think he was never allowed to be who he would become in this book, because Penelope and Damon were constantly two steps forward, three steps back, emotionally. What I loved about this book was the snappy dialogue, I had a smile

This is the 6th book in the Masters and Mercenaries series. These books should be read in order. Many of the characters are from other books and you would miss out if you didn’t read them in order.

Lexi Blake never disappoints me. She develops her characters well and writes a suspenseful book. Penelope was so interesting. I loved that she ended up interpreting what Damon would say. She had to read between the lines. Just like she does with other languages, things could have multiple meanings. Ev
Dungeon Royale is yet another amazing Masters and Mercenaries story from the incredibly talented Lexi Blake. This series just keeps getting better and better, with more mystery, more suspense, and a whole lot more kinkiness to go around. When Lexi Blake gives us a story, you just know it's genuine and from the heart. She is such a talented consistent author that always gives her readers what they want, an action packed, intensely emotional, and sexy as hell read. Dungeon Royale is one of those s ...more
Seven months after being shot by his partner Basil Champion, Damon Knight is ready to return to active duty with M16. The only obstacle in his way is obtaining a medical clearance. When Damon threatens to quit if not cleared, he's given the opportunity to team up with the crew from the McKay-Taggart team on a low level security job to find a suspected terrorist who is planning to enter the UK via a cruise ship. The task is just up Damon's alley as it's a VIP specialty cruise for those who live t ...more
Another winner by Lexi Blake I think she could write a technical manual and still love it.

4 Modern Day Espionage Stars.

It’s amazing what passes through your mind when you’re about to die. In this case Damon Knight sees what he could have had with one Miss Penelope Cash.

Seven months later he is trying to get back into the field. His medical records aren’t up to scratch but they don’t know the half of it. He has the chance to start off with a small assignment but needs help. He’s not big on help

Dungeon Royale will take you on a dangerous mission filled with action, intrigue, espionage, and bondage. Master Damon is the most fierce and hardcore Dom in this series thus far.

Damon has scars inside and out. His life has always been about MI-6. It’s who he is and what he knows other than being the owner of The Garden, Britain’s most lush and luxurious BDSM club. Damon craves control in all things in his life. He has never had a relationship with a woman before. He once had a sub that he slept

ok more 4,5 but hey it's really good so I'm adding 1/2 star for the good reading!

Let me say I'm becoming more and more fond of this series, people, characters, second characters and all.

The only thing that left me some doubt is that some time those big hunches of Doms are really some big pussycats... LOL.

I loved Damon since the very first time I met him, this English dom, funny and strong. But we're discovering in this book that after he was almost killed by his old partner in work, who betraye

All I can say is this series gets better and better all the time. This time we get a look at Damon Knight, M16 agent and Master of his domain. When an assignment comes up Damon knows who he wants at his side, quiet foreign language translator Penelope Cash. When Penelope is threatened by Damon's enemy and ex best friend Basil Champion, Damon will have to put his feeling aside to save the one person who has stolen his heart. Bringing in the friend Ian Taggart and crew is just the thing he needs t ...more
I really loved this book! Damien is just delicious and Penny became a favorite because she kept pushing past the issues and misunderstanding to get down to the heart of the matter. After the various books I've read by this Author I have to say that Lexi Blake is fantastic at erotic romance and this series keeps getting better each book.

The best of the Masters & Mercenaries series yet! The usual spy stuff, well done. But this book has a great deal of humor between Damon & Penelope, and of course, with Ian & Charlie. I love humor in my stories & this one delivers. Now, have to wait 3 months for the next one! ...more

Bloody hell. I couldn't put the book down, I've enjoyed this series so far and yes, some books are kind of meh for me but this book is everything that I want ... and more! I ignored my ever suffering husband, I ignored by kids and hell, I even ignored my 5 cats (and I never ignore my cats!) because I just could not bear to stop reading. I nearly bite my kids when they told me to eat lunch and then I growled at my husband when he tried to feed me. I think Pen is my favourite heroine in this serie ...more

Lexi Blake continues to wow and amaze me with each installment of her Masters and Mercenaries series. This time it was Damon Knight’s turn in Dungeon Royale and I just knew that I was in for a good time.

I wasn’t wrong. Once I started, I could not put Dungeon Royale down. Thank goodness for modern technology which allowed me to segue seamlessly from my e-reader, to my phone, to the cloud on my computer. If my boss knew what I was really doing at my desk . . . Dungeon Royale had everything I’ve co

The plot of this story takes place on a BDSM cruise. I can only imagine the kind of things one would see on such a cruise...I'm gonna have to look into that!

Damon Knight is hellbent on revenge. After being shot by his MI6 partner and best friend, Damon has been plotting all the ways he'd torture and kill the international terrorist. Damon's determined that his first assignment back in the field, on a BDSM-themed cruise with analyst Penelope Cash, is just what he needs to get back in the game. H

Geez this story was a great one. As a series and as a standalone though I really wish Blake ( or her Publisher if that's who gets the say ) would STOP with the epilogue being about the NEXT couple and not letting each story end with the focus on the couple in the actual story! That little trick of basically "reader get ready to buy the next book coming soon and here's your teaser" is too used car salesman.

WOW! I couldn’t get enough of this book! It has something for everyone, action, suspense, romance and hot sex. I went through so many emotions reading Damon and Penelope’s story.
You will laugh, cry, get angry and then get all hot and bothered.

I laughed out loud at all the sarcastic things that come out of Ian Taggart’s mouth! You want to slap him, but through everything he says and does, you know he will always have their back and would do anything for his c

Lexi Blake I swear she is one of my favorite authors. She knows how to make these hard ass Doms turn into mush for their lady. And the women who are weak and let everyone run them over turn into women who can handle anything when pushed just right by the right man.

This book was no different Damon was shot by his best friend and wanted nothing but revenge and we all know that can darken someone’s heart and soul. Everyone in Damon’s life has always left him and he wasn’t looking for love or looki

I absolutely adored this book! You will fall in love with Damon! I sure did! I love all of Lexi's characters. That is why this is one of my favorite series. They are all unique and lovable. It is always refreshing to read about a heroine that is not physically perfect because I know, I sure ain't and I can relate to them! I have one word for the alpha males that love their women curvy!

Fast and Furious, Just finished, review subject to change.

Well, color me surprised, I quite liked Damon. I went into this book not really giving a rats arse about this character. He's made appearances in previous books but I never felt like I knew him well enough to be interested in his story. I really began reading this one only because all of the storylines bleed into one another so I knew to continue into Simon's book I would need to read Damon's. Shockingly though I found myself invested in

I love this series by Lexi Blake. This is Damon and Penelope's story. At the end of the previous book in the series, Damon was seriously injured. A new assignment has come up but he will need to pair up with a sub as a cover. Penelope has lusted after Damon for quite some time. They both work for MI6. There is romance, sex and suspense in this book as in all of the books in this series. The supporting characters in this book were fantastic. This series needs to be read in order as there is a lot ...more

Loved this one! Especially Penelope - she was great! It was wonderful to see her confidence grow and for her to reach for what she wanted. Damon was stubborn, but that was to be expected. He was also pretty wonderful, once we got to see inside him some and to see him through Penelope's eyes. Really good story too, I really enjoyed the ride! I can't wait to read more, even more after that teaser at the end!

This book provides the start of the London office of McKay Taggart, introducing several new characters in the series. I can admire Penelope Cash, but Damon Knight really comes across as an idiot. Of course this is in line with most of the series, where the man may be doing dangerous and important security work, but in the end, they always need the women to save the day.
As far as the story goes, the superspy plot is a bit too much, with lots of unexpected plot changes and too little room for the

Lexi Blake as always gives us a thrill with the McKay-Taggart group and their ancillary partners in Britain and beyond. She once again takes us on an explosive journey of intrigue, international espionage and love. Damon Knight, once a broken and betrayed man learns to trust again and to love for the first time in his life. Penelope Cash shows herself and Damon that together, is the only way to live. Can't wait for Simon & Chelsea's HEA in August. Kudos once again and thanks for taking u
So this was the sixth book in the series and while I have read the first 4 I think I may have missed something in not reading the 5th and 5.5 book.

There were a lot of characters in here. Sometimes too many. The story was good as I do love a good spy/action story. The BDSM portion was a bit of a stretch for me. I will never under stand why a relative novice to the BDSM world and sex in general is all of a sudden very sexually skilled and has no inhibitions!

All in all not a bad book.

Hot Damn, Lexi Blake that was intense..... I know not to tell Damon what he "can't" do. I can't believe Baz wanted to be his "everything". That threw me for a loop but the scene with Simon and Chealse was HOT... I can't wait for August. I loved the lingo and am happy to say I can translate Damon language now. He and Ian are SO much alike.

This series keeps getting better and better. There is suspense, drama, lust and humor. I lol several times. Big Tag is a hoot! I loved both Damon and Penny. Under Damon's rough exterior is a real softie who is able to find much needed comfort in Penny. Glad that she is shapely and knows how to use it.
