FIRST IN A NEW SERIES
In the new Mastered series by New York Times bestselling author Lorelei James, a woman’s desire to shatter her inhibitions leaves her unprepared for where that erotic journey will take her.
Former small-town girl Amery Hardwick is living her dream as a graphic designer in Denver, Colorado. She’s focused on building her business, which leaves little time for dating—not that she needs a romantic entanglement to fulfill her. When her friend signs up for a self-defense class as part of her recovery after an attack, Amery joins her for support. That’s where she meets him.
Ronin Black, owner of the dojo, is so drawn to Amery that he takes over her training—in public and in private. The enigmatic Ronin pushes Amery’s boundaries from the start, and with each new tryst, Amery becomes addicted to the pleasure and to him. But when Amery senses Ronin is hiding something, she questions her total trust in him, despite the undeniable thrill of his possession.
Amery is a small town girl living in the big city. She runs her own business and is in charge of her own life. Until she accompanies a friend to a self-defense class at the city’s most famous dojo, Black Arts.
There she meets Sensei Ronin Black and he is unlike any man she has ever encountered before – he’s arrogant, he’s gorgeous and he’s incredibly dangerous.
Amery finds herself willing to risk everything to be with him, her friends, her heart and her control. But Ronin has secrets – secrets that will test their new and fragile bonds. Will he reveal his soul or will he watch her walk away?
“Who is holding you prisoner right now? Your thoughts?”
“Yes, by choice,” she repeated, once out loud and then again to herself, almost as self-affirmation.
He added more pressure to the bindings across her shoulders. “That’s right. Every thought, every breath, every heartbeat, every pulse of blood, every whisper, every sigh, every gasp of pain, every moment belongs to me. I’m pushing you to the place where negative thoughts don’t have any hold on you and you are exactly as you were meant to be. So you will let me do this. To you. For you.” He paused. “And for me.”
The Mastered series will continue with Unwound that is set for release in March 2014 and it just can’t come fast enough…
