Publisher's Summary

BDSM Erotic Romance
After Kari breaks up with her date during Beginner's Night at Club Shadowlands, she's given the option to continue with an experienced dominant. Despite her steamy fantasies about BDSM, the inexperienced schoolteacher plans to simply observe. Yet under the unyielding hands of Master Dan, she not only participates, but gives him everything he asks for. There is nothing she can hide from him. Not her passion - or her love.
Still mourning the death of his wife, Master Dan avoids getting involved with women and he never takes a sub twice. But this modest little beginner is such a sweetie, one night is far from enough. As he plumbs her responses, taking her ever deeper into the world of BDSM, the gentle submissive begins to show him how barren his life has become and what a dark citadel he's made of his heart.
During their three nights together, the teacher will learn to submit - can she teach the master to love?

This time it's the "Dom" who vacillates...

The "sub" (Kari) is a generally brave and strong person through at least half the story, then she inexplicably turns into a complete and utter doormat. The "dom" (Dan) is an asshole throughout, hurting Kari with rejections over and over again, while she's at her most vulnerable (a point to which he takes care to bring her each time, in the guise of teaching her about BDSM). Plus, Z's something of an asshole in this book.

I will never understand why it is considered "strong" for a man/Dom to refuse to try again after a partner's death or betrayal, yet women (generally subs) are seen as weaker or needing protection from the big bad world even when they put themselves out there over and over again, risking being hurt in order to find love.

*************** Spoilers Ahead ***************






















In this heroine's case, though, going back with the hero in order to be kicked in the proverbial teeth for a third and /fourth/ time, and then fold after a "you're mine!" and a weak-ass "I'm sorry" from the hero after the FOURTH such rejection just makes her an unmitigated DOORMAT, and the hero an unmistakable ASSHOLE.

Also, the way Z is portrayed in this book shows him up as an insensitive asshole, asking Kari to help Dan get over himself at her own expense, AFTER she's been rejected by his friend not once, not twice, but FOUR different times in the course of 3 "training" dates at the club. So much for "Master Z protects everyone in the club, especially submissives".
