Rating: 5 out of 5 Paddles
Once again, Cherise Sinclair has knocked it out of the park with a suspenseful thriller, tender love story, and how to book on BDSM all rolled into one.
“To Command and Collar” is the sixth book in the Masters of the Shadowlands series. All are stand alone books, but characters from each book show up in other stories. In this case, the Dom from the Shadowlands is Raoul, who only played bit parts in other stories. We also meet Kim, who was mentioned in the last book, “Make Me Sir”. You don’t have to read “Make Me Sir,” but it will make “To Command and Collar” more enjoyable to know the background.
Kim has been captured by a white slaver group, the Harvest Association, then sold to a sick sadistic master, Lord Greville. During a scene, she tries to stab him, only to have him stab her in return. The sadist faints during her subsequent beating and his servants send her back to the Harvest Association to be resold.
Raoul has received an invitation to preview some of the slaves the Association has for sale, and, working with the FBI, goes undercover. His goal is to wrangle an invitation to the annual auction so the FBI can shut down the entire operation. However, when he attends the preview, he recognizes Kim and knows he cannot leave her there. He flogs her as it’s expected, but then purchases her as his slave and takes her home.
