As an introduction to the Masters of the Castle series, this story worked quite well We get the background for the amazing BDSM fantasy resort that was brought over from Scotland piece by piece and assembled in an Ohio field and an introduction to several of the central characters In my opinion the story was too short to deal effectively with the complex and very serious subject matter The ending leads the reader to believe that BDSM is the solution for Hannah s problems, and I found that rat As an introduction to the Masters of the Castle series, this story worked quite well We get the

the story was too short to deal effectively with the complex and very serious subject matter The ending leads the reader to believe that BDSM is the solution for Hannah s problems, and I found that rather too pat and unbelievable This was actually a 3.5 read for me It was a short, sweet, quick read, with a little sadness mixed in for Hannah It would have been a solid 4 star, but where it lost that.5 rating was actually twofold The reader is lead up to a certain point, an expected scene between the two main characters then nothing It moves forward without even telling us what happened while it was happening The other thing is, the book felt rushed The concept for the story was good, but it was just too rushed This was actually a 3.5 read for me It was a short, sweet, quick read, with a

heal the soul crying out for release Hannah will learn what it is like to fly free without judgment, disappointing looks, and disgust The story is the beginning of the Masters of the Castle series with Hannah Alder and Sam Cooper The plot of the story will have Hannah working with chief Inspector John Goodson over permits and licensing, and he has made it his moral obligation to decline The Castle from ever opening He deems himself a moral judge and jury Taking Hannah with him to the Castle for an inspection is only a formality because he knows that he is going to decline them even though they pass everything Meeting Sam Cooper will change the world for Hannah in many ways He doesn t see the ugly of her cutting, but her instead of the heart and soul of the woman inside her Inviting her to meet him where other likeminded individual play consensually, just waiting until the Castle is complete, will take her a step further to freedom Will Hannah step out of her shell and allow Sam to lead her on a new journey The story includes sites and fixtures at the Castle that intrigue Hannah and then again when she meets Sam later that night and learnsabout dominance and submission The rejection of her family and shame placed on her for her cutting will be banished by Sam when he shows her his form of dominance This novella is raw and edgy with honesty and brings out the emotions and the exploration into BDSM The story includes voyeurism and spankings, along with discussions of various fetish including figging I know you like to pull hair and have a fruit fetish HannahThere is right and wrong, and it isn t up to one person to believe they lord over others and with a stroke of their pen they can destroy based on personal opinion It takes a strong individual to make a stand for freedom of choice and Hannah has a backbone She is the David to the Goliath when she takes on her boss, John Goodson For Hannah, this is only the beginning My office, my jurisdiction, my rules let s put things back into proper perspective, shall we I am your boss, and you are my charity case I agreed to take in because your uncle couldn t think of any place else to put you after your little stunt back home Yes, I know about that Three days in the psych ward must not have been enough if all it takes is one hour in the company of those devils to turn you I am God, Ms Alder, remember John Goodson I have to admit to reading a few of these books completely out of order but since they were so wonderful, I wanted to start at the beginning to get the full effect of the underlying plot I ve seen throughout the books I have read I can almost see where the problems have arisen from and REALLY dislike the snake that was introduced in Holding Hannah This was a quick, easy read that gave the introduction into several of what I m hoping will turn out to be the main characters in the overall I have to admit to reading a few of these books completely out of order but

characters in the overall series The castle is a fifteenth century monstrosity from Scotland that had been torn down, shipped by three boats, then by train, and finally by truck until all the pieces were delivered in rural Ohio where six Doms have combined their life savings to rebuild it and turn it into a BDSM Resort It s during this construction period when we re introduced to two of the Doms, Marshall, and Sam John Goodson, the chief inspector of licensing and permits shows up with an assistant, both realize there will be another battle to fight but are determined to be polite throughout the ordeal What happens during that inspection is an eye opener to say the least and snowballs throughout the entire storyline I m enthralled with this series and can t wait to start the next one A

read this book Maren does a phenomenal job to describing this kink was such respect and dignity The way she describes Hannah s fascination and the complexity of the enjoyment of this specific kink through her different senses was incredible to read and so well written I appreciate a book that can pull me out of my comfort zone but not to the point where it pulls me out of the story I appreciate the risk that Maren takes in writing this particular story It is definitely a great hook to what I imagine is a wonderful series
