A Spy without a Country

Simon Weston grew up royal in a place where aristocracy still mattered. Serving Queen and country meant everything to him, until MI6 marked him as damaged goods and he left his home in disgrace. Ian Taggart showed him a better way to serve his fellow man and introduced him to Sanctum, a place to pursue his passion for Dominance and submission. Topping beautiful subs was a lovely distraction until he met Chelsea, and becoming her Master turned into Simon's most important mission.

A Woman without Hope

Chelsea Dennis grew up a pawn to the Russian mob. Her father's violent lessons taught her that monsters lurked inside every man and they should never be trusted. Hiding in the shadows, she became something that even the monsters would fear—an information broker who exposed their dirty secrets and toppled their empires. Everything changed when Simon Weston crossed her path. Valiant and faithful, he was everything she needed—and a risk she couldn't afford to take.

A Force too Strong to Resist

When dark forces from her past threaten her newfound family at Sanctum, Chelsea must turn to Simon, the one man she can trust with her darkest secrets. Their only chance to survive lies in a mystery even Chelsea has been unable to solve. As they race to uncover the truth and stay one step ahead of the assassins on their heels, they will discover a love too powerful to deny. But to stop a killer, Simon just might have to sacrifice himself…

Mmmhmmm! Mama's got a new book boyfriend! Make sure you grab some tissues to wipe up the drool before you dig into this one!

Somebody wants Chelsea Dennis dead. Well, it's likely that a whole lot of somebody's want her out of the picture since she's an information broker on the dark web for more than a few unsavory characters. Out of options, Chelsea turns to McKay-Taggart Security's Simon Weston, the man who makes her body feel more in danger than any of her sketchy "clients" ever have.

Simon has been fascinated by the surly, broken Chelsea since he met her, and he wants nothing more than to have the brave, independent woman submit to him. Chelsea's childhood was the stuff of horror movies, but she's survived…so what if her world exists in the bowels of the dark web. She wants Simon fiercely, but with someone trying to kill her, there's no way she can be the meek little woman he needs. But Simon doesn't want to kill her spirit, just show her how to embrace her spirit and live a full and fulfilling life. Can the two of them learn to compromise, or will their budding relationship be over before it even starts?

I've been looking forward to Simon and Chelsea's story, and Ms. Blake didn't disappoint in A VIEW TO A THRILL, book 7 in the Masters and Mercenaries series. Simon is a fabulous character, he's the guy who gets tortured and bloodied and his first movement when getting free is to straighten his tie. He's got the British accent, the royal lineage, the intelligence and the looks, and he's a sweet guy (with a dominant streak) who only wants his woman to love him back. The depth of his character made him lovable rather than pathetic, and that totally could've happened with the crazy-cakes Chelsea in his life! Naïve but genius, Chelsea goes through stages of martyrdom and self-pity to go along with her god complex she throws out there occasionally. I should hate her, but Simon balanced her out nicely and I just drooled over their story.

The action was well done too, as usual! Ms. Blake has romantic suspense down to a science and I really feel sucked into the works and battling right along with the McKay-Taggart team. Ms. Blake also does BDSM-light like a BOSS too! Ropes, floggers and plugs, oh my! Thrown all together, and A VIEW TO A THRILL is up there for one of the best of the series.

Bottom Line: Ms. Blake can do no wrong, and I'll just reiterate the recommendation to get your dirty little paws on anything that this author releases.
