Finding a book on BDSM at her sister’s place, Cassidy is intrigued that she starts exploring the D/s aspect on the internet. All Cassidy knows is that it calls to her hidden desires that have lain frozen for so long. When she finds and meets Master Draken, she finds much more than a man but a man who will shake her entire safe world and bring it back to life…..that is if Cassidy lets herself believe in love again. Will UNMASKING DORIAN be Cassidy’s salvation or bring her worst fears to light?

UNMASKING DORIAN brings the reader back to Club Velvet Ice and the world of BDSM. This was the first book of this series that I have read and it had me running off to the author’s website to see if there was more as the secondary characters were very appealing. Ms. Summers introduces you to Dorian Jenner, a serious Dom who longs for his own submissive. When Cassidy lands in his lap, he finds himself drawing her out and into his world of submission and shows her the emotions behind the pleasure he gives her. With a fast paced storyline, complex characters and some really hot scenes, Ms. Summers delivers an emotional story that will capture your heart from the first page.

Meet Cassidy, a woman cruelly widowed while pregnant and now trying to make a life for herself and her child. Feeling the ice that is inside her soul, she is intrigued by a BDSM book she spies at her sister’s place and ends up finding a Master who takes her to places that she never felt before. From internet chats to public meetings, Cassidy finds herself giving into the one man who stirs her like no other. Cassidy is a complex, wounded soul and the reader is drawn to her after a few pages. You get a sense of how this heroine’s life has changed and what she fears above all. Ms. Summers deftly captures exactly who Cassidy is and who she becomes as Dorian draws out the woman underneath all the pain. With a deft touch, Ms. Summers captivates you until the very end. Dorian Jenner is a strong Dom who knew in an instant Cassidy was to be his but he also saw how fearful she was as well. With the right amount of pleasure and pain, he begins to show her, under the guise of Master Draken, who she really is and how sweet passion can really be.

Ms. Summers is a gifted storyteller who really gets the emotional layers of her characters and shows the reader their vulnerabilities. UNMASKING DORIAN is a highly seductive story that will leave you eager for more. I look forward to reading more of Club Velvet Ice and the wonderful world of BDSM that this author has created. If you enjoy a highly sensual story with emotional undercurrents, then grab UNMASKING DORIAN. It will heat your afternoon right up and leave you anxious for more.
