About Cherise Sinclair
Cherise Sinclair is a New York Times and USA Today Bestselling author devoted to giving her readers emotional, suspenseful romances.
Having been told by her mother to “play the field,” she took that advice to heart. In fact, when she met her one-and-only while scuba diving in the Caribbean, it took him a while to convince her that it was time to settle down. But he did. Because he’s bossy that way.
Fledglings having flown the nest, Cherise, her beloved husband, an eighty-pound lap-puppy, and Domme Kitteh live in the Pacific Northwest where nothing is cozier than a rainy day spent writing.

The kid’s pretty mother is smarter. There’s fear in her eyes when she looks at Hawk. That hurts. The sweet woman is everything he’s ever wanted—loving, affectionate, and patient. But after what she’s been through, she sure won’t want to be around men—especially the one who killed her husband.
He’d saved her.
Kit agrees with her son. Being near Hawk is the safest place on earth. Beneath the menacing appearance, he’s protective…and kind. The better she gets to know him, the more she sees him as a man—a very sexy man. But, considering what had happened to her, she knows—
No man would want her now.

Retired Special Forces colonel, Ghost has been a widower for long enough.
Although he’s ready to love again, the generous, caring woman he desires has scars from her past. However, he has hard-won skills, enough to show Valerie there can be a new F on her list—fulfillment.

After her last relationship disaster, computer whiz Sally knows she'll never find a Dom. Instead, she’ll hang out with her friends at the exclusive Shadowlands BDSM club and go job hunting. And maybe bend the law to find the slavers who’d preyed on her friends. The clueless feds obviously need help.
FBI special agents Galen and Vance have waited to play with Sally for a long time and are delighted when the mischievous submissive returns to the club. Realizing she's suppressing deep-seated emotions, the experienced co-tops push her--only to discover that her sassiness conceals a scarred, vulnerable heart.
Shaken, Sally flees the demanding Masters, and they let her go. Neither Galen nor Vance wants a long-term relationship, especially with a submissive who refuses what they can give. But when a brutal attack by her ex-Dom sends Sally into their home, the two agents need to protect her. To help her. To take her under command.
Although falling in love isn't in the plans, the little imp brightens their lives. Just as they begin to want more, they discover she's hacked an organization that revels in burning people alive. Now more than hearts are on the line.
Whenever a reader asks for a BDSM recommendation, I respond with only one name: Cherise Sinclair. In her books, you will find devastatingly alluring characters, raw emotion, intense suspense and a story that will keep you locked in its sinful embrace. IF ONLY is one of my favourite reads this year.

As he plumbs her responses, taking her ever deeper into the world of BDSM, the gentle submissive begins to show him how barren his life has become and what a dark citadel he's made of his heart.

A sadistic husband left Beth scarred, inside and out. Only at the Shadowlands club does she feel like a woman. But her fears limit her to Doms who won't overwhelm her--the very ones who cannot arouse her. The Master of the Shadowlands gives her an ultimatum: accept the Dom he assigns or lose her membership. The last thing Beth wants is a ruthless, powerful Dom, but that's just what she gets.
Asked to take on a problem sub, Nolan sees the issue immediately--although truly submissive, the little redhead is too scared to relinquish control, and her Doms have let her get away with it. That will change right now.
As Master Nolan takes Beth under command, compelling her submission, she's terrified, but the experienced Dom brings her pleasure, not pain. His only demand is that she never lie to him. Under his capable hands, her body comes alive, and she begins to heal. As he pushes her limits, she learns to trust...and then to love. And she realizes he is beginning to care for her in return.
But now her cruel husband has found her, and Master Nolan discovers she's been lying and lying and lying.
Across the country, rebellious BDSM submissives are being systematically kidnapped, one from each club. When her friend falls prey to the slavers, FBI victim specialist Gabrielle volunteers to be bait in a club not yet hit: the Shadowlands.
She finds that being a bratty sub comes naturally, especially when she gets to twit the appallingly conservative Master of the trainees. But she soon discovers he’s not as stuffy as she’d thought. Or as mean. She’d expected punishment, even humiliation, but she sure never expected to fall in love with a damned lawyer.
Courtesy of a prima donna ex-wife, Marcus loathes disobedient submissives. When the club owner insists he admit an incredibly bratty trainee, he’s furious. But as he comes to know Gabrielle and sees the alluring sweetness beneath the sass, he starts to fall for her.
Unfortunately, Marcus isn't the only one who believes the feisty redhead is a prize worth capturing. And in the world of the slaver, such treasure is worth a hefty fee.
She will risk everything to rescue her friend.
Frankie’s BFF and four-year-old son are trapped inside a fanatical militia’s compound. In Alaska, no less. Wilderness rescues are so not in the New Yorker’s skill set. But she’ll figure it out. She must.
Bull’s new roadhouse server is a mass of contradictions.
The city girl’s reasons for being in Alaska don’t add up. Bull’s been burned by liars before. So, why is he falling for this crap again? Maybe it’s her big brown eyes, exuberant personality—or her generous, compassionate heart. Whatever the reason is, he cares. If she’s in trouble, he’ll do his damnedest to get her out.
The huge Alaskan is terrifyingly compelling--and heartwarmingly concerned for her.
But Frankie refuses to involve Bull in the deadly mess. Her plan to rescue her bestie will work without anyone getting hurt. As she tries her best not to fall in love, she doggedly acquires each skill she’ll need.
Getting shot, though…that hadn’t been on her to-do list.
Bull and Frankie's romance put me in an unbelievable feel-good happy place I truly haven't been to at all this year. Their story was full of suspense, action, danger, heartwarming family moments, and white-hot sizzling chemistry. I am SO VERY happy with this book that it is almost impossible to contain it!

Forced to accept an unknown submissive into his carefully run trainee program, Master Cullen is furious. Not only is the young woman new to BDSM, but she's unsuited to her role--armored in leather like a Domme, she's more liable to punch a Dom than kneel. He decides to push her right back out the door. But as he ruthlessly intimidates her, punishes her, then cuddles her, he glimpses the woman inside the emotional barriers. Her utter surrender captures his heart.
Although Master Cullen is famous for his unfettered lifestyle, Andrea hopes he might be interested in her, until she discovers he's not just a bartender--he's a cop. Maybe he'd overlook her past brush with the law, but when another trainee accuses her of stealing money, Andrea knows she's lost the Master she wanted with all her heart.

When trying to save a woman from slavers, Master Sam screwed up. Royally. Now Linda wants nothing to do with him. Or with BDSM. She won’t even admit she’s a masochist. As a dominant and sadist, he can give her what she needs, and when an opportunity arises, he slips into her life, intending to make amends. She’s everything he knew she would be…except for her bullheaded determination to be “normal”.
Free from the slavers, Linda just wants to return to her small conservative town, pick up her quiet life, and be normal. But how can someone who likes pain be “normal”? To her dismay, when someone spray-paints her home with obscenities, Sam shows up to rescue her. Again. Doesn’t he understand that the last thing she needs in her life is a sadist? His amusement at her objections doesn’t disguise that he’s tough as nails, very dominant, and extremely stubborn. He’s won’t let her drive him off this time…not when they both know she wants him to stay.
In the Shadowlands club, she finds acceptance and friendship…until she hears a voice from out of her nightmares.

Having volunteered in every hellhole in the world, Dr. Alastair Drago is ready to settle down. Detective Max Drago has joined him and, once again, the cousins share everything.
