Her car disabled during a tropical storm, Jessica Randall discovers the isolated house where she’s sheltering is a private bondage club. At first shocked, she soon becomes aroused watching the interactions between the Doms and their subs. But she’s a professional woman–an accountant–and surely isn’t a submissive…is she? Master Z hasn’t been so attracted to a woman in years. But the little sub who has wandered into his club intrigues him. She’s intelligent. Reserved. Conservative. After he discovers her interest in BDSM, he can’t resist tying her up and unleashing the passion she hides within.


I love a good erotica that shows a normal relationship can a have a bit of spicy and this series is really good in showing how to match the everyday and still be yourself. This first book is the lightest of them all, but still portraits how dangerous the BDSM world can be without rules. People rules is everything and trust comes right next.
So we have Jessica, a normal girl with a problem during a storm and the only place she can find shelter and help is the Shadowlands mansion, but everything comes with a price and she discovered that right at the start.
I have no problem with Master Z, but Jessica gave in to fast and it wasn’t very good for me how she just trusted the guy and let him use and tie her, not good for me. She had no idea about the lifestyle rules, but managed to get in series trouble.
I found the story was good and the BDSM part really well done, but the relationship was a bit fast for me. Wish Jessica could have waited more and got a little more familiar with Master Z before jumping the ties with him.
