I recently finished My Liege of Dark Haven by Cherise Sinclair. As with all Cherise Sinclair books, I almost cried when I turned the last page. For years I have been searching for a BDSM writer than can compare to Ms. Sinclair but I have yet to find one as good. Maybe I am looking in the wrong place? I will list some of the things I adore about her books and hopefully y’all can help me.
The Male Leads
Xavier was the latest hero I read about and he was fabulous. Her heroes are what I would call controlled. Each of them has a past but they do not let that past define them or hold them back from the heroines they are presented with. They have a certain calm about them that draws the women, and the reader, to them. If was ever going to let someone tie me up and spank me, it would be one of Cherise Sinclair’s boys!
The Way BDSM is Handled
Ms. Sinclair writes the most amazing portrayal of BDSM. Each book focuses on good, consensual play between people. I recently read a book that had a very ugly, disturbing view on BDSM. For that book it was all about who could hit who harder. In Cherise Sinclair books the safe word is a must and is kept sacred. There is a level of trust and watchfulness in each scene that is played out and nothing happens behind closed doors or is degrading to the people involved.
From fire play to electrical play to rope play, from games with water guns and crazy toys nobody can show me something new like Ms. Sinclair has. I am amazed that each book of hers that I read has something different in it. There is no repeat of what happened in the previous book but always something new and fresh in the BDSM play.
So that is what I am looking for! BDSM seems to be the ‘thing’ right now but I cannot find someone to compare to Ms. Sinclair. Please help!!
