A Masters and Mercenaries Novella / 1001 Dark Nights

Though short, this book reads like a full length novel and will quickly draw you in. The characters are awesome but definitely not perfect. Their emotional struggles will have you cringing at times, almost crying at others and cheering yet at others. Definitely a roller coaster and the ride is well worth it. The characters are extremely well done. You’ll be surprised that they feel as if you know them. And, while this novella is part of a series, it can be read without having read other books in the series though characters from those other books are in this one. Romance and sex are essential to the plot. And though Mitch isn’t sure that Laurel really is interested in BDSM, expect that aspect to appear in this story. This book is also more than just a romance; it’s also an adventure as someone wants to kill Laurel! Super hot guys and some thrilling scenes make this a perfect story.
