When Rebecca's boyfriend talks her into vacationing at a mountain lodge with his swing club, she quickly learns she's not cut out for playing musical beds. Now she has nowhere to sleep. Logan, the lodge owner, finds her freezing on the porch. After hauling her inside, he warms her in his own bed, and there the experienced Dom discovers that Rebecca might not be a swinger…but she is definitely a submissive.
Rebecca knows that no one can love her plump, scarred body. To her shock, lodge owner Logan not only disagrees, but ties her up and shows her just how much he enjoys her curves. Under his skilled hands, Rebecca not only loses her inhibitions, but also her heart.
Damaged from the war, Logan considers himself too dangerous to be around the enticing little sub. He sends her away for her own safety, not realizing she believes she has once again been rejected because of her size. As Logan's mountains echo with her voice long after she's gone, he realizes she's taken his heart with her. But when he arrives in the city to reclaim her, Rebecca's phone has been disconnected and her apartment is empty…
The joy of finding a talented writer can be very rewarding in both the short and long term: having a new book to read and a future writer to add to your list of favorites. I am not quite sure what is more entertaining about Master of the Mountain, reading about the interactions between Logan and Rebecca, or envisioning those same interactions while reading their words on the page. I found myself chuckling out loud throughout the story as Rebecca contemplated her life, and while doing so stopped to give herself random, and often hilarious little pep talks as “encouragement.”
Ms. Sinclair seemed to enjoy herself thoroughly as evident in the snappy dialogue and the interesting scenes she used in describing her main characters. Perhaps, it was her inventive version of the 70's swingers scene, and how she added a contemporary aura to it with a BDSM flare that caught my attention. Or maybe it was her in-depth character studies, adding so many different personalities to her book, and giving her readers a wide variety to enjoy while reading rather than just the standard one or two. Whatever the reasons for the success of this particular book, and its author, Master of the Mountain is certainly a great book to read and one I recommend if this is an author you have somehow missed in the past.
