The author’s daring writing was amazing and above all had respect towards the reader, the atmosphere was sensual testing limits of edginess and anticipation.

This book, is definitely a must read for all who like strong hot men, smart and sassy women, mixing in BDSM. I couldn't put it down. Read it in 12 hours, with my own family interruptions. There should be a law against one family having so many HOT men. Master Eagle, true to his name, strong, pride and honorable and his brother & cousins, believe they have what they need to be happy in life...I know a few of them could make me very happy. Peyton, workaholic, an over achiever, possibly; smart defi ...more

Another knock out of the park for Linzi Basset! This book will hold you captive until you finish it. The Masters/Doms may have a little something to do with it. Who wouldn’t want a hot Alpha male topping them? This book has it all. Suspense, mystery, danger, secrets, lies and the most panty melting scenes you can imagine. So, take a trip to Castle of Sin. You may not want to leave. I am looking forward to the next one in this series.

This story grabbed me from the beginning and didn't let go!
Stone is a strong, dominant, Alpha male. He made my heart swoon.
Peyton was an interesting character, at times very strong and at other times somewhat weak. But the two of them ignite and explode with each other.
Totally loved this story and I can't wait for Hawk's and Savannah's story!

The seven deadly sins have nothing on these seven sizzling Doms. If the first book in the series is anything to go by, my Kindle and I are in danger of going up in flames. The perfect combination of suspense, intrigue, kink, and blazing heat! I’ve read other books by this author but have found my new addiction. Cannot wait to read more.

Unfortunately this is a DNF for me for now. I might pick it up later.
I'm not a big fan of using First Nations spirituality in the way that's depicted here with the 'totem animals.' It comes across as a little cultural appropriation ish, though maybe I'm misreading and the author is herself indiginous or intends the characters are.

I got stuck with some small details, like how this Stone doesn't know how the heroine is connected to the other woman but the narration says she is her cousin during

There aren't many constants in the Universe, but the quality of Ms Basset's writing is one of them (IMO).
I loved AND enjoyed this beginning book in a new series from the author. And this book has A LOT to recommend it: SIZZLING steamy s*x (& I mean SIZZLING!), intrigue, suspense, danger, espionage, angst, a hard DOMINANT Alpha, a steel spined hardheaded heroine that alternates between embracing & fighting being a submissive.
An emotionally locked Hero that finds himself lusting in the most unexpe

Castle Sin is an amazing and interesting read. It is sexy af, full of suspense, intrigue, and will keep you on the edge of your seat. Not only is it a very hot story but you will love the characters and the storyline. The king of the castle is Stone Sinclair, along with the other masters of BDSM. Stone, Master Eagle says he will never take a sub as his own until Peyton arrives on the island. She’s not really there for the pleasure but to rescue her cousin, Savannah. Both were sent to destroy Be ...more

Where do I begin with how phenomenal this start to this new series is! It so deserves more than five stars! The story of Peyton and Stone will hold you captive from the very first sentence to the very last word. When Peyton goes to Castle Sin to find her cousin, she didn't anticipate how she would feel when she meets Master Eagle aka Stone. You could just feel it in your heart that when they met, they belonged together. This is not your "run of the mill" BDSM type story, not at all! It has myste ...more

I love how Linzi Basset always manage to make me go through an array of emotions and that I always get close to breaking a Kindle while reading her. Because Linzi brings BDSM to another level. She makes it a way of living and sometimes, things she does to her characters is merciless. But one of the reason I read Linzi is definitely because she always gives to the readers what they want. No matter what it is. She had me doubt on Stone 2 times, one I still cringe a bit on it, but no because it was ...more

OMG!!! So far I have only read the first chapter, and I am already having difficulty breathing. Castle of Sin is an exclusive BDSM club on a secluded island, where they train their own slaves and submissives to provide a perfect atmosphere for themselves and their exclusive clientele.

Stone, as Master Eagle, is strong, dominant and honorable. Peyton agrees to go for training in order to help her cousin, and for the possibility of a furthering her career. The Masters of Castle Sin have already do

What a fantastic first book to a new series, set on an exclusive BDSM resort. Meet the seven Master's and enter the seven dungeons.

Meet Peyton a woman with an agenda, convincing the Master's at Castle sin that it was where she  wanted to be that she was a sub called PJ, however that is just a front as she was there to help her cousin. That is until she meets Stone aka Master Eagle

Wow what a fabulous start to a new series. If you love mystery, intrigue, hot men, submissive women and a lot of BDSM this is the book for you. No one can weave a story like Linzi Basset and this just might be her best yet.
Stone is the Alpha of all Alphas and once he meets Peyton he realizes that there is something there but with her lies and deceit how will he bring her to heel?

If Stone is any indication, Linzi Basset's Castle Sin series is going to be a real winner. Seven panty melting, movie star cousins own and operate a BDSM club on a private island. They are also successful businessmen. The series has story possibilities that are endless.

Stone Sinclair...phew! Where to start? The man also known as Master Eagle is sex on a stick gorgeous, an apparent mind reader and human lie detector. Peyton Jackson quickly finds out about Stone's latter two attributes upon arrivi

Stone - 5 absolutely amazing stars!

Wow! First off if i could give this book more than 5 stars I would. Every single time Linzi Basset releases a book and/or series, it's better than the last. With this first book of the Castle Sin series she has set the bar high for the others but I have no doubt the next ones will be just as explosive, suspenseful, charming and sexy. I cannot wait to get Master Hawk's book!

Fans of Club Alpha Cove Linzi has started a new club that you will want to join. Castle Sin has it all hot Doms and even hotter masters. Payton went to Castle Sin to rescue her cousin or so she thought. Enter Master Eagle. Who is going to rescue her now? Master Eagle aka as the beast knows Payten is hiding something and is determined to find out what. Payten has unleased the beast. A must read for fans of the Queen of Erotica. Will keep your panties wet and your heart throbbing.
