The Mastered Series, #1

Awesome! Fantastic! I’ve always loved Lorelei James’s cowboys but they are going to have to make room for one very sexy sensei! This is a total departure from Ms. James’s popular series but it shows what a master storyteller she is. I quickly got wrapped up in this intense story and was so sad to see it end that I immediately reread it! It was just as good the second time around. Suddenly, I’m in a world with dojos, martial arts and a mysterious man. Emotions fly off the page as Amery and Ronin work on figuring out their attraction and relationship. Secondary characters are interesting and necessary for this story to work. I’m really hoping some of them will get their own book! Explanations of erotic rope work are put into the story naturally so that even someone who has never heard of such a thing will understand what it is. Bound is about bondage and there is mention of BDSM but don’t expect a BDSM story because this isn’t one. It is an exceptional erotic romance with Japanese influence and some violence. Though there is not a typical happy ending, read this book. I can’t stress enough how much I thoroughly and completely enjoyed it and can’t wait for more.

Amery has agreed to attend a self-defense class with her employee, Molly. What she doesn’t expect is to have to sign up for the class herself and attracting the attention of the owner. Ronin hasn’t felt this attraction to a woman in years but Amery intrigues him. Ronin decides to become Amery’s partner in class but can he interest her in after class activities?
