From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Lexi Blake comes a new story in her Masters and Mercenaries series…
A snarky submissive princess
Sarah Stevens’s life is pretty sweet. By day, she’s a dedicated trauma nurse and by night, a fun-loving club sub. She adores her job, has a group of friends who have her back, and is a member of the hottest club in Dallas. So why does it all feel hollow? Could it be because she fell for her dream man and can’t forgive him for walking away from her? Nope. She’s not going there again. No matter how much she wants to.
A prince of the silver screen
Jared Johns might be one of the most popular actors in Hollywood, but he lost more than a fan when he walked away from Sarah. He lost the only woman he’s ever loved. He’s been trying to get her back, but she won’t return his calls. A trip to Dallas to visit his brother might be exactly what he needs to jump-start his quest to claim the woman who holds his heart.
A masquerade to remember
For Charlotte Taggart’s birthday, Sanctum becomes a fantasyland of kinky fun and games. Every unattached sub gets a new Dom for the festivities. The twist? The Doms must conceal their identities until the stroke of midnight at the end of the party. It’s exactly what Sarah needs to forget the fact that Jared is pursuing her. She can’t give in to him, and the mysterious Master D is making her rethink her position when it comes to signing a contract. Jared knows he was born to play this role, dashing suitor by day and dirty Dom at night.
When the masks come off, will she be able to forgive the man who loves her, or will she leave him forever?
**Every 1001 Dark Nights novella is a standalone story. For new readers, it’s an introduction to an author’s world. And for fans, it’s a bonus book in the author’s series. We hope you'll enjoy each one as much as we do.**
Enchanted is part of the Masters and Mercenaries series and if you have read the books, you have met our characters, Jared and Sarah. I was a bit confused in the beginning because a lot of reference is made to an event in their past I didn’t know about. I haven’t read all the Masters and Mercenaries books. However, it wasn’t a big deal because the event is tangental to the story presented in Enchanted. Jared and Sarah were ALMOST a thing years ago, but he left. Now he wants her and he knows she is the one for him. Convincing Sarah of that is proving to be very difficult. Jared enlists the help of Big Tag and Charlotte, and of course his brother Kai and his with Kori (who happens to be Sarah’s best friend).
Sarah is not at all what I think of when I think of typical “submissives”. She has a mouth on her and gets pretty snarky! But, her and Jared together were a great pair. Sarah is also dealing with some really heaving personal stuff that had tears streaming down my face for like the last 25% of the story!
Enchanted deals with some heavy material but manages to do it in a way that is engaging and uplifiting! You get some laughs (because seriously there are Taggarts involved), you get some tears, you get seriously hot sex. What more do you want from a Lexi Blake book?
