I was a Master.
To understand me, you must understand my past.
My father was a Master. My mother his Courtesan.
I was raised in a business that trained women to become whores for the men that owned them. I was taught to train with a strict hand…but to seduce with a kind heart.
Although my mother was one of those golden whores, the women broken and rebuilt to become everything their owner could desire, my mother – in her wisdom and beauty – trapped the heart of her Master.
Through her perseverance, she never let the man go.
Naturally, I followed in his footsteps, not once finding love, but almost gaining a son.
My heart was destroyed on a clear summer day when my child was stripped from my hands. Redemption for my crimes was lost, and loneliness like a man should never know was gained.
Until I found Seraphina…
She thought she could deny me. She thought she could choose her fate or determine the course her life would run. She thought she would never love another because she couldn’t love herself.
With a shattered heart and rebellious mind, she believed her life was broken. She chose death as an avenue to escape the life she was given, and she believed there was nobody who could stand in her way.
As her Master, it was my duty to show her…
…that all her beliefs were wrong.

The cover on this one is OK. Fairly good representation of the story. Good composition and title work as well.
This is probably going to be the most bizarre review you have read in a LONG time. I didn’t like this book. Hated it in fact. It was SOOO far beyond my comfort level. It made me physically ill. So I bet you are saying to yourself “Why the hell did you give it a 4-Star rating then?” For the very reason that it DID make me sick to my stomach. Because I spent the whole book with a giant lump in my throat. Because I HATED every male character in this book. Because my heart broke for every female in this book. Because it kept me hooked from page one. Because it was fantastically well written. Because it pulled SO many different emotions from me (anger, fear, hatred, disgust, pity, hope, redemption). Because it made me think, and feel, and question what would “I” do if placed in such a situation. Lord was I SO uncomfortable reading this book. But good god can this author write a story.
And honestly, isn’t that what a GOOD book should make you feel? Shouldn’t it make you think? Make you cry? Make you rage? So for all of the above reasons and about a thousand more I am sure I will think up later on, this one gets two thumbs up from yours truly. On a side note, I will NEVER read Aiden’s book. Nothing will ever make this guy redeemable in my eyes. At least Anthony had a bit of compassion in him. What Aiden put Sera through at the end of this book was absolutely disgusting. And frankly, I don’t think my heart or stomach could take a complete book of just him.
