Blog Tour, Review : 1001 Dark Nights ` Masters of Freedom by Cherise Sinclair


Detective Atticus Ware gave up his beloved Idaho to start again in the mountains of California, close to his imprisoned brother. He has a rewarding job and friends, but the experienced Dominant wants more than the Do-Me submissives who flock around him. He needs a woman who will give her heart as well as her body. 

Virginia, “Gin,” is damn good at her challenging career as a prison psychologist. However, one problem inmate is mired in misery and unable to overcome his guilt at causing a friend’s death.
To clear her mind, she joins a friend’s kinky backpacking excursion, planning to hide in her tent during the evening BDSM pursuits. But Atticus lures her into the activities. She’s read about BDSM, but submission under the hands of a powerful Dom is beyond anything she’d imagined. She doesn’t trust men, doesn’t want a relationship, and yet…wants more from him.

Finally, Atticus has found the woman he wants in his life. In his bed. In his cuffs. But she’s not only his brother’s therapist, but also works in a prison. How can he tolerate his woman walking into danger every single blasted day?

Gin knows she has no future with Atticus Ware, but still, hope is rising in her heart.
Love Love Love Cherise Sinclair's Mountain Masters Series!
What's not to love about a sexy detective?  How about a sexy DOMINANT detective?  Oh God Yes...why can't I get so lucky?
I love the awesome characters and the way the author brings them together.  Virginia was just a bystander...wanting to see that BDSM was for "real" and not just something made up for romance walks Atticus Ware, king of bondage.
Well, she "helps" out Atticus and one thing leads to another....Come to find out Counselor Virginia, working in the prison, has a conflict of interest...Atticus flat out has a conflict...amongst all the opposition they both begin to find themselves and what they want...Kidnapping gone wrong, murder, mayhem...what a great read.  I thought this was gonna be a quicky novella and was pleasantly surprised that this was a full-out wonderful Mountain Masters series story!
I think everyone should be Atticus, Gin and Trigger too!
4.5 swingin stars!





Annoying Atticus might not be a smart idea.

He was still standing there. Watching her. When her eyes lifted to his, he gave a nod, as if satisfied, then walked around her. Touching her. Running a hand down her bare arm. Across her lower back. Moving her hair to fall down her back. He stroked down her spine, as if assessing her vertebrae. His fingers massaged her left shoulder, then the right.

His hand was warm and callused. Firm.

“You’re a beautiful woman, Virginia.” He unbuttoned her nightie, letting it hang open. “I’m going to tie a modified karada—a rope web for the torso.”

Her hands closed into fists as she kept herself from moving. She was still covered, she reminded herself. The silky material caught on her peaked nipples, making her think of the old question,Are you cold or glad to see me?

She had an uncomfortable feeling that Atticus already knew the answer.

He draped the rope behind her neck, the ends dangling in front. Slowly, but without hesitation, he began to weave the rope around her, above her breasts, below her breasts.

With the first knot, she tensed. He stopped. His gaze on her was steady, revealing no irritation or impatience. Jake and Kallie liked him, she could tell. She’d seen him work with the other people here and how he emphasized safety and honest communication. Everything about the man said he was in control. He wasn’t a little boy—he was a man, an honorable one.

“We’ll stop if you need to, but you can trust me, baby,” he said quietly.

“I know. I do.”

The appreciation in his gaze said he knew she’d offered him a gift. “Thank you, sweetling.”

She felt slight tugs as he created a series of diamond-like patterns down the center of her body. Gradually a latticework of rope snugly formed around her torso, and the sensation of being enclosed was oddly comforting. Back when she’d worked with children, some of the autistic ones could be settled by firmly wrapping a blanket around them, as if the sensation of being hugged would subdue their nerves so they could process the world’s input more normally.

This was…nice. Under the slight scrape of the ropes and the sure movements of Atticus’s hands, she felt her pulse slow. He never left her, always kept a hand on her somewhere, as if she might float away if he let her go.

“You take rope well.” He grasped her upper arms. “I want you on the ground now.”
