Reclaimed by Her Master is a BDSM novella that is a good short read. The BDSM content is quite intense, so won't be to everyone's taste, but it is scorching hot and well written. The timeframe is very short, the whole book takes place over one night, but the author packs a lot of content into this one night.
Aria lost her virginity to billionaire Dom Stephen. On the same night she helped her brother steal a valuable painting from Stephen and ran from him, never having told him that she loved him. Stephen feels betrayed, not just because Aria stole the painting, but because she fled from him just after he declared his love for her. In revenge he stole a treasured necklace from Aria, hoping that it would lure her back to him so she could submit to her punishment. Eight years later Aria returns.
There is an obvious connection between Aria and Stephen, but there is also a lot of history and ill feeling. Each of them have tried to deny their love and feelings, but they can't resist the chemistry and bond between them. The punishment Aria endures is harsh, but her body craves the pain, pleasure and dominance that only Stephen can give her. I absolutely loved Stephen's dungeon, which he referred to as his Gold Room. Luxuriously decorated, it was filled with unique and ingenious contraptions that he used to punish Aria. The author has a great imagination, her BDSM scenes were hot and different from most books I read in this genre - no run of the mill spankings here!
I enjoyed this book and the authors writing style - I just wish it was longer so we could learn even more about this couple and what the future holds for them. Reclaimed by Her Master gets four out of five stars.
I received a copy of this book in exchange for a honest review.
