Another winner from Samantha A. Cole. Well written and gave us a different look at the BDSM world through the eyes of a Domme. The story brought another wide array of characters into the life of the Trident Security team. Never a dull moment with all the weaving of drama, love and sex. Good pace and a nice twist near the end.

The Story of Charlotte and Mike Donovan is very different of what we've read on the trident series as Charlotte is the Domme in this relationship. BUT it is also a very beautiful story and very well written.. so if the reader doesn't really know how a Domme relationship works, in this book you'll definitely see this beautiful side of the lifestyle and relationship..

Charlotte is a member of the covenant, a Domme and also a parol officer she is very determine to help the felons who need a second

Once again, I was completely taken in by the story of Charlotte..aka. Mistress China and Mike. Even though Jake is his brother, Mike in not in the lifestyle so he can't understand why he reacts to Charlotte the way he does. He's been interested in her but knows that she doesn't play or date anyone who isn't in the lifestyle. When he reacts to her like a submissive, Charlotte takes a chance and talks to him, even though she knows that if Mike comes to her, his brother Jake will not like it. Witho ...more

OMG. Another winner for Samantha Cole!

I have loved Mike, Jake's older brother, since the first book. I knew there was angst there but he's just such a good guy! I didn't see him with Charlotte but oh boy, does it work!

Charlotte, aka Mistress China is a force to be reckoned with as both a parole officer and a Domme. She doesn't take crap off anyone, despite her tiny stature. She liked Mike, the owner of the pub she frequents and the brother of one of the Doms at the club, well enough but didn't

When Charlotte a local Domme and Whip Master discovers that Mike the local bar owner is a submissive she makes Mike an offer he finds hard to refuse. With both humour and a lot of well-researched information, the author takes us on a very entertaining journey filled with family tension as well as drama, suspense, and intrigue. A new favourite of mine thats sure to be a favourite of yours as well.

I did not know what to expect from Mistress China and has waited patiently to figure her out but OMG that was better than expected. I have liked Mike from the beginning and love him now.

This is my first Domme story. I loved reading about how Charlotte taught Michael about his submissive nature. Its hot, sexy, sweet and action packed all at the same time. You can never go wrong with this authors books.

Awesome read!

As with all of Samantha’s books, this one is fabulous. You will read about some of the previously written characters, love and always a little bit of “suspense” action. You even get to meet some extended family.

The most realistic fiction story you might ever read...
Entertaining Distraction is yet another amazing story by Samantha A. Cole and the second book in one of several series that focus on a group of Dominant men who all work together and/or co-own a BDSM club. Each book in the series introduces you to these men, more in depth, and how they find the loves of their lives. This is the story of Michael "Mike" Donovan, the owner of an infamous bar that the "sexy six-pack" of men can always be found i

OMG, the dynamic between Michael and Mistress China (Charlotte) is powerfully potent and erotic. Their scenes together are so sexy and sensual. They ring true without any artifice. The evolvement from a D/s dynamic to falling in love was inevitable but heartwarming. With the sub stories about Michael and Jake's mother, Jenn's move to a new career and possibly a new love and Nick and Jake's ever growing love and commitment to one another, this romance had a easy going, true life feel to it.

Just Fabulous. Ms. Cole’s series and spin offs are an absolute must read. They are all fun, sexy, romantic, suspenseful and definitely written with Ms. Cole’s wicked wit and sense of humor. OH and don’t even get me started on the characters: OH MY GOSH they are all just too hummy for words. Of course they all have the looks but they also have such a wonderful comradery with each other as well as caring, loving and giving personalities to go along with their definite Dominant or Subordinate chara ...more

I received the ARC in exchange for a honest review.

Can I just say WOW?! This has to be the best that Samantha has ever wrote! I was pulled in instantly and couldn’t put this down. I was long awaiting Charlotte’s story and this exceeded all my expectations. One of the things I liked best about this was that Samantha really defined what BDSM is really about. The mental and emotional connection is the strongest part of it. Not just physically. I’m in the lifestyle myself and she hit the nail on the

Whenever a new Covenant story is released I have to drop everything and read it. Like the others, this one did not disappoint. I was waiting for Mistress China’s story and this was perfect. When Charlotte realized Mike was submissive, she knew she wanted him. Mike was attracted to Charlotte but could he do what she asked? I enjoyed their story as they both realized what they wanted in life. Add in others from prior books, drama from Charlotte’s job and Mike’s family and you have a story I could ...more

Entertaining Distraction is one of those books you can’t put down. Samantha A. Cole has a way of writing that makes the reader feel like part of the story. She has managed to impress this reader every time. Each new book seems to exceed expectations. Her latest does not disappoint. Charlotte and Mikes story gives the reader a peek into the lives of Domme and sub in the BDSM lifestyle. You can expect endearing characters, a little humor, love, action, and hotness.

When I heard that Sam was writing a book about Mistress China and Mike, I couldn't have been more thrilled. This is the story we least excepted between the two characters. She NAILED it. ED grabbed me from page one...This is a different story line that we are all use to and that is what makes this book so much better.... I love Sam's books!! You never know what to expect from her and her characters. BRAVO for pulling off another terrific book!!!!!!! ...more

Entertaining Read!

Charlotte and Michael - I never thought they would end up together. Was I ever wrong! Mistress Charlotte is just what Michael needs and he is just who she needs. Loved getting to know more about Jakes brother and mom. I am such a fan of Samantha A. Cole’s writing. Her character development is spot on, in that you really get to know the characters! Can’t wait to read what’s next!

I’ve been wanting to read Mistress China’s book for some time. Mike is Jake’s older brother and a firm fixture within the series. To say these two were paired, was a surprise, is an understatement. But oh boy does it work! It’s entertaining and highly addictive to read and I couldn’t put it down .. it’s not only a surprising pairing, but the way the story evolves is not what I was expecting at all. This book is full of intrigue and drama, highly recommended this book and series

Wow! I love this book!!

I absolutely love this book!! Samantha A Cole is a wonderful writer! I was so happy to read Charlotte and Mike's story. Mistress China has always been one of my favorite characters from the Trident Security series. It was great to find out a little of her back story in this book. She deserves to be happy.

I honestly wasn't sure if I was going to enjoy this story or not....I'm not a huge fan of domme stories. I should have had more faith as I've loved all of the stories in this series and this one was no different. I loved the scene at the club that showed what a true dom and submissive looked like - it was a perfect addition to this story. I loved Mike and Charlotte as a couple. ...more

I have been waiting on Mistress China's book for a while now! I was hoping she would get her HEA with a good guy.
Mike is Jake's older brother, so he is a character I know. I honestly never thought he would EVER be interested in the lifestyle, but am glad that he did.

I have been waiting for Mistress China's story for so long I always knew it would be great but Samantha Cole has taken it to a new level. OMG the chemistry is off the chart between Mike and Charlotte, the love story is beautiful but what tore me apart and made this story so beautiful was the real respect and love Samantha gave to her characters. They were real people with real concerns, flaws and angst.

Mike Donavan's attraction to Charlotte Roth is something that takes him by surprise. He never thought of himself as submissive. He's never thought to much about the BDSM lifestyle. His brother is involved in it and thats the extent of his knowledge.

Charlotte Roth "Mistress China" has noticed the looks Mike sends her way. And she can't ignore it anymore. This attraction between them and chemistry is like a magnet.

Mike's wary though he somehow thinks it makes him seem less manly somehow. To be dom

I'm fully convinced Samantha can do no wrong when it comes to writing an amazing book!! I have been looking forward to Charlotte and Mike's book. I have been a die hard Jake and Nick fan since the beginning and thought nobody would ever come close to their taking their 1st place, however Mike and Charlotte did just that. I've never read a book with a Domme and was a bit iffy of it to beginning with, but this book was EVERYTHING I was hoping for and more!! I can't wait for more from Samantha.

Finally Charlotte “Mistress China” Roth gets her story. She has been an engaging peripheral character in this series and I’m happy to see her get to tell her story. Mike on the other hand was an afterthought to me; no biggie,not interesting,a bland character used to plump up the plot. I am happy to say Samantha Cole was just keeping him in the shadows so he could explode into the forefront

A delightful steamy romp with a H/h that will win you over and a delightful storyline that will keep you en

I absolutely love this series. In this book we see not only our principal couple but most of the sexy six pack too! Mistress China, aka, Charlotte is a feisty sexual Dominant but also a parole officer too. She cares about her parolees and helps where she can. Mike is Jake Donovan’s older brother and owner of Donovan’s bar. It’s quite by chance Charlotte finds out that Mike’s a sexual submissive. What unfurls is a story full of drama, intrigue, sadness and love. Kept me hooked from page one. High ...more

The Covenant. The most elite, exclusive, well-secured BDSM club in Tampa. Co-owned by Ian, Devon, and Mitch Sawyer, they've spared no expense to make it the best of the best. And Mistress China, a/k/a Charlotte Roth, Domme and Whip Master there, is the crème de la crème, the embodiment of the club's standards. Petite and gorgeous, Charlotte isn't just a Whip Master. She's a seasoned parole officer. You don't mess with Mistress China! But lately Charlotte's life has become routine, almost boring. ...more

Entertaining Distraction by Samantha Cole

This is a hard one for me to review. I’m such a huge fan of Samantha Cole and all her series but I can only give Entertaining Distraction three stars, and it hurts to do. I’ve been anxiously awaiting this book since I first read about Mistress China in Leather & Lace. This is probably a case of my expectations being the cause of my disappointment rather than the book itself.

First of all, the book was good, with all of the elements we love from SC. Plenty
Janine - The World Was Hers for the Reading
Charlotte Roth is a parole officer, BDSM dominant and whip master and homebody. She has always kept those three aspects of her life separate from one another, as keeping things compartmentalized allows her to maintain the control she so desperately needs. She doesn’t do relationships and she never plays outside of the lifestyle, but her attraction to Michael Donovan has her rethinking everything.

Mike finds Charlotte extremely attractive, but he’s not submissive, is he? While his brother is a dom

This was interesting, getting a different perspective from the male Doms. I love Mike and he has always come across as alpha just as much as all the other guys around Trident, submitting to Mistress Charlotte really doesn't take any of that away from him in any way. It seemed they were fairly equal even in their D/s relationship, it worked well for them both. I really enjoyed the lessons and getting more insight into training and such. Another great addition
