When Rebecca’s lover talks her into a mountain lodge vacation with his swing club, she soon learns she’s not cut out for playing musical beds. But with her boyfriend “entertaining” in their cabin, 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 Dominant 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. But, to her surprise, Logan disagrees and is quite happy to show her just how much he enjoys her curves. Under his skilled hands, Rebecca loses not only 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 thinks she’s been rejected because of her size. When Logan’s mountains echo with her voice long after she’s gone, he knows she’s left behind part of herself—and taken his heart. But when he arrives in the city to reclaim her, Rebecca’s phone has been disconnected and her apartment is empty…
Rebecca might be plagued by feelings of physical inadequacy but she's a woman who has made a place for herself in the world. Knowing her relationship with boyfriend Matt isn't exactly catching fire, she agrees to try a swinger’s weekend with him but no, it’s just not really Rebecca's thing.
Logan helps run the lodge where Matt and his 'friends' come to play but this war veteran has his own issues to deal with. Seeing Rebecca so clearly lost and alone, he offers her shelter from her boyfriend’s antics but is surprised to discover whilst she's not into changing partners, she most certainly is a natural submissive! One who is a delight to teach but who challenges everything Logan is afraid of.
Fear not this isn't a hard-core ride into depravity but a sensual journey of discovery. Ms Sinclair got it exactly right with a macho man who is possessive and unafraid to take charge. Logan is so enamoured by Rebecca that he wants so much to declare her his, meaning others might look, but definitely not touch!
Whilst not exactly vanilla or tame, Master of the Mountain is passionate as this couple clearly have chemistry. Still the author gives depth to the story as she allows both her leads to face their fears with a happy ending that felt almost perfect. Why almost? Well, there's a tiny bit of sweetness running through this story as Rebecca learns what it means to have a canine friend and I'd have liked to see a little more of that. Still it's a fabulous book that whilst at times hot, still held tenderness.
