ABOUT SERVICING THE TARGET: A Masters of the Shadowland Novel: A discharged Army Ranger, Ben considers his job as a BDSM club security guard to be an excellent hobby. He’s never been tempted to join in. But everything changes when the notorious Mistress Anne inadvertently reveals the caring heart concealed beneath her Domme armor. Now, he’s set his sights on the beautiful Shadowlands Mistress. Maybe he’d considered himself vanilla, but she can put her stiletto on his chest any day, any time. He’ll trust her delicate hands to hold his heart. And if she wants to whip his ass on the way to an outstanding climax, he’s just fine with that too. Sure, he knows she likes “pretty boy” slaves. And he’s older. Craggy and rough. And six-five. Minor hindrances. The mission is a go. 

Rating: 5 cups

Ms. Sinclair has done it again and has delivered another memorable addition to her Master of the Shadowlands series.  This time around,its Mistress Anne's turn to find her true match and its an unknown entity.  It seems Ben, the security guard is the guy to keep this Domme on her toes.  So what's the twist?  Well its seems Mistress Anne is a known sadist who likes her pretty boy slaves at her command and Ben is well, not so pretty, not a boy and definitely vanilla (so he thinks).  Despite that they have this unmistakable bond that is hard to resist and the longer they engage in their unlikely coupledom, the more likely its not going to end well.

I love the Club Shadowland books.  But Servicing the Target I think is one the best books in this series.  I love Anne and Ben and how their relationship develops.  Considering these two started out as secondary characters in the first books that were not really fleshed out initially, they were definitely given center stage with excellent character development this time around.  Anne was so endearing considering she's this bad ass Domme but with Ben she kind of shed that whole hard armor and becomes more human.  Ben has always been present from book one but always in the background, so to get a full on Ben experience was something to look forward too .  I love the way their relationship evolves and how they deal with the pitfalls of a D/s relationship.  I love that the some of the other couples made cameo appearances to help our couple out.  Its also a nice touch, because this time around they're the background characters and Anne and Ben have come center stage. Full circle.

Servicing the Target is a great read, the sex hands down has always been excellent, the scenarios well defined, the story line well plotted but its the romance between a loving Domme and her so in love sub that is the best offering of this book.

  STT - Teaser 1  


Lifting her sax, she wetted the reed and tested a wandering set of notes. With one hip on the railing, she let her internal playlist scroll and found herself playing “As Time Goes By.” Like a soft rain, the notes spilled over her deck and joined with the evening. A slow song, but not sad. It reminded her that the fundamentals of life, living and loving and dying, held the same from generation to generation.
That life could change for the better.
She was changing, as was her world. Or maybe she should call it growing, rather than changing.
            As the tune went into the chorus, she heard Ben say something to Bronx in the kitchen. The dog whined an answer, and Ben’s big laugh rumbled out.
He was quite a guy. He’d been so careful with her this afternoon. Not pushing, but not stopping before he’d made his point.
Sometimes his internal strength was a bit disconcerting. All her slaves had wanted her in charge, wanted her to take control of everything. But Ben didn’t need her guidance.
At the same time, he wouldn’t fall apart if she showed any weakness, and because of that, she could relax around him.
But his obstinate need to be tough—to hide any weakness—was a problem. She should have noticed he was having flashbacks. But now she knew, and she could lead him to talk about his past. She’d pamper him up, keep him close, and ensure he got his sleep. He said he slept better at her house. With her.
He liked being with her. The realization was…amazing. Overwhelming.
She felt the same and more. He’d filled her life. Warmed it.
With a slow flourish, she ended the song and started another. One that had been growing in her heart over the past week, with the knowledge, the worry, the awe.“When I Fall in Love.” The music flowed, the ache of her soul merging with the notes.
She’d wanted to run. To push him away. And she hadn’t.
Ben, I love you.
The knowledge was terrifying and wonderful. For a little while yet, she’d savor the gift, and then she’d share.
Light washed out over the deck, and he stood there, filling the doorway as completely as he did her heart. “I was listening to you play.”
His golden-brown eyes held hers as he slowly smiled. “Mistress, may this submissive haul you off to bed?”

STT Teaser 2  


Having to wear glasses in elementary school can scar a person for life. Dubbed a nerd at an early age, Cherise Sinclair has been trying to live up to the stereotype ever since. And what better way than being an author? Known for writing deeply emotional stories, the USA Today Bestselling Author has penned sixteen erotic romance novels, most with a BDSM theme. (Please do not mention the phrase mommy porn in her presence.) Her awards range from a National Leather Award to a Romantic Times Reviewer’s Choice nomination to a GoodReads BDSM group award for best author of the year. Cherise lives in the Pacific Northwest with her husband. Their two fledglings have left the nest recently to try their wings and hopefully will fly high and strong. The “ascendant erotica queen” (Rolling Stone Magazine) now spends her days writing with occasional supervision from a sadistic calico cat.
