If Only

Masters of the Shadowlands, #8

Welcome to the Shadowlands. This BDSM club is the setting for a series of books by one of the best BDSM writers around, Cherise Sinclair. Not only are there super hot sex scenes but there are emotional pulls and complex plots which make these stories so much more than just a romance. A submissive named Sally has been in all of the books. She’s sassy and always looking for trouble. This is her story and it’s much more than Sally finding a Dom. Seriously subjects like abuse and human trafficking are major plot lines. Violence is part of this story but so is caring and concern. Even if you’ve never read any of the other books in this series, you’ll quickly be able to follow it and may find yourself looking for the previous stories. Be careful though as Ms Sinclair’s stories are addicting and will spoil you!

Sally thought she had found her Dom but instead she found an abusive want to be. That’s it. She’s given up trying to find her Dom and is going to concentrate on finishing school. On the side though, Sally is helping the police stop a human trafficking ring, even if hacking into their computers is kind of illegal. Galen and Vance work for the FBI and co-Dom. They enjoy sassy Sally and want to play with her, if she ever comes back to Shadowlands. However, when Sally does finally make an appearance, the sassy imp is gone. What happened and what can they do?

Book Blurb for If Only

After the last fiasco, Sally gives up. She'll never find a Dom of her own. Instead the computer whizz is job hunting in between bending the law--just a bit--to unearth the bastards who'd enslaved her friends. The clueless cops and Feds obviously need her help.

FBI special agents, Galen and Vance, have waited to play with Sally for a long time. When the mischievous submissive returns to the exclusive Shadowlands BDSM club after an ugly relationship, the experienced co-tops are more than pleased. Realizing she's suppressing deep-seated emotions, the powerful Doms push her--only to find that her sassiness conceals a scarred and vulnerable heart.

Shaken by the unexpected emotional exposure, Sally flees the demanding Masters and the Shadowlands. And that should be the end of that, since both Galen and Vance have reasons not to seek a long-term relationship, especially with a submissive who doesn't want what they can give. But when a brutal attack by her ex-Dom sends Sally into their home, the two agents are driven to protect her. To help her. To take her under command. Falling in love isn't in the plans.

But the little imp brings light into their lives, and just as they begin to want more, they discover she's hacked into an organization that delights in burning people alive. Now more than hearts are on the line, and Sally's submission could save her life.
