Review by: Fern
In Regency England, good girls like Victoria Ashford don’t pen wicked stories for underground sex papers and they certainly don’t don a mask and exchange places with a whore in a desperate bid to share one night of passion with the man she’s always desired. When Matthew Corwin, Earl of Sussex, discovers the identity of his remarkably responsive, submissive “whore”, he plots erotic payback for her treacherous deception, never intending to let his heart get involved. But protecting her from a blackmailer makes him realize maybe there’s more than just being her dark master…
Victoria Rose Ashford is in a tight spot. Her twenty-first birthday has come and gone and another year as a single lady will undoubtedly leave her a spinster. The trouble is she only has eyes for her brother’s longtime friend, the elusive Matthew Corwin, a consummate bachelor that has no desire to wed. Desperation drives Tori to devise a plan that will see her in the arms of the man of her dreams, but when he learns her identity, things do not go according to plan.
Her Dark Master combines intrigue and suspense with pulse-pounding erotica, ensuring a reader squirms in their seats while they remain on their toes. The material is tightly written, the plot well thought out, and the story fast paced. I enjoyed the mystery that drives the story, as well as the chemistry between the protagonists. The intimate scenes between Tori and Matthew will leave you breathless.
This is a wonderful story for those that enjoy mystery in their erotica, Her Dark Master is a most recommended read.
