DOMS OF DARK HAVEN
This collection is fantastic! The characters and plot are fully developed, the pace is fast and the sex is hot. Although the central theme of the three stories is BDSM, there is a mix of suspense, paranormal and contemporary erotic romance here. There are some anal, exhibitionism and voyeurism scenes as well. It’s particularly nice to see the three authors place as much emphasis on the romance as on the sexual situations.
In “Met Her Match” by Cartwright, Mira is confident and tough, but not when it comes to her new partner, Torin. Torin did not want to be her dom, but objects when she seeks one at Dark Haven. He will have to show her who’s boss in the bedroom. McBride’s story has a lone wolf shifter stumbling across her mate at Dark Haven. Harte sets about “Educating Evangeline” about survival, and about taking a chance on love. In Sinclair’s “Simon Says: Mine,” Rona has just ended a 20-year marriage and wants to explore her hidden desires. She’ll need Master Simon to show her that a committed relationship is not the trap she fears — if she has the right partner. (LOOSE-ID.COM, dl $7.99)
