On the mountain, the watcher seeks out evil women. And then they die.

Two years ago, when Jake Hunt uncollared his slave, she committed suicide. Guilt-ridden, he will commit to a woman for one night only, devoting his energy to a mountain lodge that caters to a BDSM crowd.

Kallie Masterson is tough. Unwanted as a child, she worked hard to become a wilderness guide. She’s proud of who she is, and hurt that Jake frowns on her for acting like a man.
After rescuing the macho guide from a bar fight, Jake is stunned that the ugly men’s clothing hides a warm, responsive woman. A submissive woman. When guide business brings her to the lodge on BDSM night, and she is obviously aroused by the play, Jake takes the little sub right into his world of pain and pleasure. He warns her: one night only. But she responds so beautifully -- so joyously -- under his command, that one night soon becomes two, then three...

Then a missing hiker reminds Jake of his past lover, and he realizes he’s become too involved. He pulls back.

Meanwhile, the watcher on the mountain has rendered his verdict: Kallie Masterson is evil. The sentence: Death.

Publisher's Note: This book contains explicit sexual content, graphic language, and situations that some readers may find objectionable: Anal play/intercourse, BDSM theme and elements, exhibitionism, violence, voyeurism.


Cherise Sinclair wove a wonderful romance story filled with love, action, adventure, danger, suspense, and fun characters.

Kallie, the heroine, is strong, reliable, and capable of handling herself in tough situations. She’s easy to like with her sharp tongue and quick fists balanced by a loving nature. Kallie’s overprotective cousins, which are a hoot, and her past life experiences make for an emotional rollercoaster ride.

Jake, the hero, has his own emotional baggage to lug through this story. It’s easy to see how Kallie could fall for someone who is strong, protective, helpful, loving, and kind. Not to mention that he is the perfect dominant to her submissive.

The two of them light the pages on fire with their hot, erotic BDSM scenes. Their love for one another is evident to the reader, and will emotionally pull at your heart until they finally realize what they share.

While Jake and Kallie are trying to work out their relationship there is a plot line that will have you shivering. As a reader, you will think you have it all figured out, and then Cherise Sinclair throws a wicked plot twist that will have you on the edge of your seat.

Master of the Abyss is a great story that did not disappoint; between its playful and witty banter, emotional issues and suspense, the pages just kept turning.
