She signed away her freedom...

Starved for affection, young Piper Delaney surrenders her life to a Master. But there is no love—only abuse. She’s told she can’t leave; she signed the slave contract. Years later, beaten and starving, she hears an English Dom say the contract’s illegal. Unenforceable. And she runs.

She reclaims her life and rises above the nightmare that was h

As he straightened, she stared at him…and felt barriers dropping. Leaving her open. Defenseless. Oh, she was in so much trouble.

No one can write an emotional powerhouse of a BDSM romance quite like Cherise Sinclair. When it comes to her books, I don't even bother reading the blurb. I HAVE to have them. Period. This woman has written some of my favorite Doms I've ever written. Though, deVries forever holds my heart in the number one spot. *Happy sigh*

It's been too long since I've read one of the Dark Haven books but I'm really glad I got back to this series with Sir Ethan's book. I loved this bossy Englishman and his sweet, skittish, submissive. Piper was the star of this book for me and I really admired her determination to lose the fear she still carried with her from her past. It made for some very interesting and evens angsty moments that I loved reading. And of course there was the usual Cherise Sinclair he

Miss Sinclair usually writes a red hot steamy BDSM story. Her works does not have much plot but straight to dirty things. So i was so excited to begin my journey again in I Will Not Beg.

Imagine my surprise that i do not like this book that much. I think the story is too weak and too much of the BDSM. I can not really feel the characters develop together. I do like Ethan. He is steady and enigmatic hero. His patience with Pipper is so tender that i almost can not believe he is actually a Dom.

When Cherise has a new story coming,i always jump with joy,one-click to pre-order,and count down the days until it lands in my library.

And there it was.....the latest beauty,I Will Not Beg. And what a beauty it was!

Piper is a tough cookie with a very,very sweet core. Having survived an abusive “Master”,she built a new life for herself,and even started her own business,Chatelaines,catering to people’s needs. Avoiding the kind of men that are Dominant,she tries dating,but....resigns herself to be

I've been waiting for Sir Ethan's story for way too long. And I'm glad to say it was worth the wait. Ethan was kind of always around but fading into the background after he plays his role. We were fed tids and bits over the last few books of the series and it only fed my curiosity. I wanted to unravel the mysterious English Dom and see what kind of man he is. The very first time he showed on page in 'I Will Not Beg' Ethan proved that he's a man of honor and compassion. Someone who doesn't turn a ...more

Great characters, interesting story and well written

We love Cherise’s books and this story is no exception. With I Will Not Beg she delivers another home run.She creates strong characters that appeal to us and her storylines are always interesting.
Although it works as a standalone, it’s part of the Dark Haven/Mountain Masters series and we were thrilled about the return of many of the characters from previous installments. It’s also fun that she keeps up with details like Abby and Xavier’s dog

Powerful story of a woman who finds the courage to leave an abusive relationship where she was made to believe she was less than worthless. When a woman who was already starved for love from a childhood lacking in it meets a man who promises her the world her naivety gets her trapped emotionally in a very abusive situation. It's not until a Dom interjects and says that no slave contract is binding/legal that she finally asks for help in getting away.

When it comes to writing an emotional BDSM story, Cherise Sinclair is the Queen! Fans have long been waiting for Ms. Sinclair to write Sir Ethan's story and did she ever!!!

Piper has escaped an abusive master and made a new life for herself but it left her scared emotionally. Through friends, the meet again and he doesn't remember her until she whispers "worthless".

Piper really won me over quickly in this book. With her history she should have been a puddle on the floor when she encountered anyone in the BDSM world. Instead she fought to build herself back up, didn't run when she realized she missed aspects of that world and worked to find the pleasure in BDSM again. Doing all of this and along the way she found great friends and a Master that was patient with her and cherished her like she deserved. I especially like the ending where Ethan let her (and e ...more

A new book from this author is always on my radar, I love love love her books. This is books I can read over and over again.
This is part of a series but it can be read as a standalone.

The storyline is good and progresses steadily to a happy ending.
All characters is well described and developed in to realistic personalities that has me feeling like they are familiar to me.

Sir Ethan is approaching Piper in a way that makes so much sense to me. She has escaped a Master/slave relationsh

The Delight
When my favorite author contacted me through FB offering me an ARC of her latest book, I am forever grateful! She didn't have to do it, but I am so happy she did. To be fair, I also bought the book. Cherise Sinclair is an autobuy author and no way I canceling my pre-order. The story is captivating and harsh with an uplifting ending that had my faith in humanity restored.

The story starts up years before current time where we see Piper Delaney in a very bad relationship. Relat

“Love is a gift. The finest gift you’ll find in a lifetime. Don’t throw it away so casually.”

I Will Not Beg is book nine in the Mountain Masters & Dark Haven series by Cherise Sinclair. From the first book I’ve read by Cherise to this last book, all I can see is growth. This book makes a statement and feels the most real scenario out of all her plots. There’s no prison escape or botched kidnapping, just a horrible master abusing his slaves and he doesn’t even deserve the title he uses. I’m so ha

Full disclosure: I have very mixed feelings about Cherise Sinclair's works (I realize I'm in the minority); this review addresses all of them.

On the one hand, her writing is decent (her dialogue, in particular, simulates real life and, thus, is not stilted as it often is in this genre); her plots are detailed and complete; and her characterizations are strong, with clear motivations and comprehensive backstories. Because of this, I do find myself invested in her characters; so, while the erotic

Marie's Tempting Reads ARC Review:

Intimidating, passionate, empowering and extremely enlightening, I Will Not Beg was incredible!

Piper and Sir Ethan has got to be the most heart clenching book couple to date from Miss Sinclair! Piper is an amazingly brave, caring, and determined heroine while Sir Ethan is most assuredly the most patient, protective, calm hero I have encountered. These two characters fit BEAUTIFULLY and PERFECTLY. Like two puzzle pieces.

Their romance was SWOONTASTIC and SENSUAL

It's been awhile since we've visited Dark Haven. And boy did I miss it. Ethan is powerful in his protection mode and I loved Piper. Her strength is amazing. Reading the love blossom between these two is powerful enough for most, add in everything else in the story, the rest of the characters from DH and this is a rousing addition to a shelf of favorites. I savored, didn't rush, and want to beg for more. ...more
My rating is hovering between three and four stars, and I might upgrade later. I liked Piper a lot and it was interesting to see Stan and Dixon face challenges as a couple. Ethan was often (except for once) a bit too perfect. What is making me consider my upgrade is how the confrontation with Serna (and Jerry to some extent) was handled. Go Piper.

Grab Your Tissues!

This book was really amazing! Cherise Sinclair is hands-down the BEST BDSM romance author around. Not only does she write a story that makes you feel like you know the characters as real people, she always strives to educate about all aspects of the lifestyle. For fans of BDSM romance, you cannot go wrong with any of her books.

Even after nine books, the stories are still fresh, unique, fun filled (although they have dealt with serious topics), erotic and full of romantic drama

Rene’s Thoughts:

☞ I loved being back in Dark Haven, I had forgotten how much I love this series and the characters.

☞ One thing I really loved about Piper, is that she rescues herself and creates a new fulfilling life all before she gets to know Sir. Ethan. He may have given her the information she needed to escape the nightmare she was trapped in, but she had t

『🔒 3.5 stars 🔓』

At first, when we meet ᴘɪᴘᴇʀ at her current situation-being enslaved by her "Master", I just couldn't understand how someone could want to be treated like that, and I mean to that extent because I know there are Master/slave relationships in BDSM. Yeah, I have never read one of those but I know they exist. Can someone be so innocent or gullible to believe one of those contracts can't be nullified just by withdrawing your consent? That was Piper's case. I understood why after fin

4.5 ⭐️

And that is how you do it.

I love a storyline that involves a character overcoming abuse to understand and accept their worth as a person. Done well it is the best thing to read and this one is one of the best.

Piper at a young age was taken in by the honey promises of an abusive man and entered into a master/slave relationship. After suffering horrific abuse she meets another Dom at a party that lets her know the contract she signed is not binding or legal. Piper escapes and restarts

While reading I Will Not Beg, I kept trying to delay the story because I didn't want the book to end. I guess that is just as much a mark of a good book as one you can't put down!

Piper and Ethan have a slow burn romance compared to many of the couples in Ms. Sinclair's books, which was necessary due to the heroine's backstory. There is no sex until about halfway through the book. Ethan is extremely patient and forgiving, more so even than many of the previous Doms Ms. Sinclair has written about.

Years later, after being subjected to nothing but abuse, she gets the courage to leave, with encouragement from a sexy British stranger. Even more years later, Piper has built up a successful business, but she feels something is missing, so she visits the Dark Haven BDSM club, hoping to find the positive side of something she once loved.

This is another gem by Ms. Sinclair. I love how she pulls you in and makes you feel for the characters. Piper was abused in a previous relationship but found her way out with a little help. After moving to San Francisco and rebuilding her life, she meets Sir Ethan Worthington. They both discover that he assisted her in leaving her abusive relationship. Piper wants to re-enter the BDSM lifestyle and Ethan and her work out an arrangement for him to assist her in a non-sexual way. Lo and behold, it ...more

Well Cherise Sinclair has done it again.
This is a story of a woman who has been abused, but rebuilt her life, found her niche, her strength and eventually her new master.
Sir Ethan, is a man with a title, a large bank balance and a kind if dominant heart.
These two had a lot of history to overcome but with the help and support of friends, the Dark Haven Doms and Subs, and their own inner integrity they challenged themselves and dealt a blow to some bad guys.
