Calliope Ingalls had it all: a loving Dom who was also her husband, and a great job that took her all over the country. But it all came crashing down when her husband died unexpectedly. Not sure what to do, she retreated inside herself, shutting off everyone as she wished for the impossible. But there was still work to be done.

When Calliope finally agreed to photograph the construction at his new hotel, Silas Hope was thrilled. His attraction to the sub was strong, and he wanted nothing more than to see her bound in his dungeon for both their pleasure.

To do that, though, Silas would have to convince her to open up to him, mind, body and soul. He knew what Calliope liked, because he’d witnessed her submission firsthand. Now all he had to do was get her to let him wrap his ropes around her wrists and put the kiss of his leather on her bottom.

But while the two of them are exploring a new Dom/sub relationship, another force is at work in Augstown, one that shows that some spirits don’t like change...especially when they’ve been around for four hundred years.

Publisher's Note: This book contains explicit sexual content, graphic language, and situations that some readers may find objectionable: Strong BDSM theme and elements, dubious consent.


Master of the Sun is an emotion filled and powerful story. The author will have you sobbing and crying throughout the tale. It is a story of loss in every sense, and how hard the journey back to life and living is after the death of a loved one.

Melinda Barron engages all your attention with strong BDSM scenes and characters. The women are realistic and have meat on their bones. The men are dominant, loving alphas. This is quite a serious story, but there is some humor and mystery worked in as well.

Calliope’s journey back to life was also one of self-discovery. It was interesting to follow as her needs and desires overcame her fear and shame. Silas helped bring out the best in Calliope by learning more about her and pushing her limits. The ending leaves the reader hopeful as Calliope finds joy in life again.

Melinda Barron did a wonderful job with this well written story. I would be interested in other creations by this author.
