Cardinal’s Rule, Tymber Dalton (BDSM Blog Hop)
Cardinal’s Rule, Tymber Dalton
Tilly Cardinal is perfectly happy with life. She loves making a home for her Master, Christo. Everything is going well, they are searching for homes together and contemplating marriage. Tilly wears his collar happily, after all she has been through she has finally found someone she can trust in heart and soul.
Her world comes crashing down when Master Christo does not return from a four week business trip as scheduled. She has returned from the grocery store with the goal of preparing his favorite meal to find a letter in his place. Tilly receives a Dear John (or master) letter. Her Master has left her, while she was preparing for his return he spent the morning signing everything over into her name without a word of goodbye.
Tilly falls apart, her friends also in the lifestyle help her cope with the loss of her Master…
Now over five years later Tilly is Mistress, she no longer plays in the lifestyle as a submissive she makes money by toping men non-sexually. Her life is passing along until her former Masters, Master (yes, he left her for his former Master) Master Landry LaCroux enters her life and asks her to marry him. Master LaCroux is sick and he wants to make amends for how his submissive, her former Master treated her, he feels it is his fault.
Now Tilly has to deal with a new husband she doesn’t know who is clearly a dominant and her former Master who is now a submissive.
I loved this book it has been out for a few years but I have never read anything like it and Tymber Dalton is one of the first authors to get me interested in the genre. She even writes a how to book about how to write the hot sex scenes she writes called Whip Me, Beat Me, Make Me Write Hot Sex (non-fiction). Oh I envy you getting to read this for the first time also check out her Family Matters series and my god, Fierce Radiance is science fiction domination at its best.
