On the mountain, the watcher seeks out evil women. And then they die.
Two years ago, when Jake Hunt uncollared his slave, she committed suicide. Guilt-ridden, he will commit to a woman for one night only, devoting his energy to a mountain lodge that caters to a BDSM crowd.
Kallie Masterson is tough. Unwanted as a child, she worked hard to become a wilderness guide. She's proud of who she is, and hurt that Jake frowns on her for acting like a man.
After rescuing the macho guide from a bar fight, Jake is stunned that the ugly men's clothing hides a warm, responsive woman. A submissive woman. When guide business brings her to the lodge on BDSM night, and she is obviously aroused by the play, Jake takes the little sub right into his world of pain and pleasure. He warns her: one night only. But she responds so beautifully - so joyously - under his command, that one night soon becomes two, then three... Then a missing hiker reminds Jake of his past lover, and he realizes he's become too involved. He pulls back.
Meanwhile, the watcher on the mountain has rendered his verdict: Kallie Masterson is evil. The sentence: death.

"narrators ruined the book"
I really can't stand these two narrators, their voices are annoying, their acting skills are terrible, it's like listening to high schoolers put on their first play. I would have preferred to read the hard copy myself.
I have read reviews about Wen Ross and what a great narrator how is...I disagree. He reads these dominant male roles and his voice does not sound masculine at all. Just not a good match for the books that I've read with him narrating. The voice doesn't fit the character, which makes it difficult for me to read.
"Hot with an element of mystery!!"
Between the fantastic writing and the amazing narration, this book was definitely one of my favorite audiobooks.
I loved the mystery behind the man who was stalking Kallie when she had no idea he was. I loved how Wen Ross performed him. So creepy!
I loved Jake and Kallie. Their chemistry was undeniable no matter how much they tried to deny it.
I loved this book and I am dying to listen to more in the series. The Mountain Masters are hot!! Cherise Sinclair has quickly become one of my favorite authors and I cannot wait to see what else she has in store.
"This audible book was so worth the wait!!"
I have read this amazing book by Ms Sinclair a number of times but bringing it to audible made the book even better. I LOVED the performance from such talented individuals (sorry I have been up all night and I am to lazy to get your names. I couldn't stop listening) anyway the only criticism I have is I am a slow reader so it seemed a little rushed but other than that it was AMAZING!! I do hope Ms Sinclair continues to use you for the rest of the books. Thanks for such a wonderful performance. You made my day.
"A Steamy BDSM Romance That Thrills & Titillates!"
Yes, because the performances were so engaging and Cherise Sinclair is the Grand Dame of BDSM romance! I fell instantly in love with Jake and Kallie from the onset and their chemistry was palpable! I enjoyed the sizzling sparks, the way they played off one another, their delightful push-pull and of course the bdsm scenes were smoking hot! I also loved how the characters worked through their PROBLEMS together. Jake was the PERFECT dom--a powerful and commanding ALPHA male with a strong protective streak. He was uber dominant in the bedroom but also exquisitely gentle and tender and sensitive to Kallie's needs throughout. He was not a tyrant in the least and it was all about making sure his "Little Sprite" felt cared for and safe and cherished. I SWOONED throughout and he made me wish for a night of bliss as his precious submissive! And Kallie was a sassy spitfire that lit up every scene! She was a fiercely independent tomboy but she had grown a tough outer shell over the years as a self-defense mechanism to cover her abandonment issues. Her kind, infinitely patient and intuitive Dom tapped into her aching vulnerability and her feminine side! And I thought the serial killer storyline was woven very well into the plot to add dramatic urgency to the story. Ms. Sinclair knows how to spin a tale that is both scintillating but also incredibly emotional! I love how she always delves deep into the psyches and hearts and souls of her characters so it's a never "just" about bdsm play! This book just had everything I look for in a steamy romance erotica...sizzling passion, tender-hearted romance, naughty kink, oodles of heart, witty banter, a warm undercurrent of humor and beloved characters who truly belong together!
Umm..everything? But what I loved best was how all the men in Kallie's life (Jake, Logan and her fiercely macho cousins) were all so doting and protective of her. It warmed my heart to see them all band together and the emotional intervention that Jake staged with Kallie and her cousins at the end to get to the bottom of Kallie's abandonment issues, which resulted in a huge emotional breakthrough, was deeply moving!
I just LOVE their duet narration! These actors have amazing chemistry together and they just brought the characters of Kallie and Jake to life for me. I adore their line delivery, their breezy banter and the way they make you FEEL every emotion that the characters are experiencing!. Plus, Wen's voice and his deep, rumbly chuckle always causes delicious shivers to race up and down my spine!! I could literally listen to him all day long!
Danger and Decadent Delight Abound in the Rugged Wilderness!
A fantastic audio that enthralled and delighted from start to finish!
"Sexy read that made me laugh and cry"
There was a very compelling storyline. I loved the interaction between the main characters and the supporting characters. There was realistic dialogue that made the book glow quickly. The narrators were both
I had read the book before and knew it was a great read, but I had to listen to the narration when it came out. I thought that Kai Kennicott and Wen Ross did a great job of narration bringing the characters to life. A good story plus good narration equals a great listen. Made the drive to work more interesting!
"My Two Pennies"
Simon Says (book one) was a good book but this story Master If The Abyss was just absolutely incredible. Kallie is a powerful strong woman. Being around her male cousins being a tomboy was all she knew. Jake is a strong confident male Dom and has his eyes set on Kallie but his rule is not to build any relationships between himself and others, he doesn't become attached after his last relationship ended the way it did. Jake brings out the feminine and the submissive side of Kallie and she is embracing it all. We have the sexy in their story along with a bit of suspense when we find out about the "watcher on the mountain". I couldn't believe the events that took place, I was left gasping and in shock at times. I LOVE Jake! Can't wait to start book 3. This is my voluntary and unbiased review.
I love this novel! I have been wanting to know Jakes story! So glad I was able to journey unhurt
"another winner for me"
Her books always strike just the right balance of hot sex and interesting story lines!!
It’s never just a case of tying her up and spanking her ass until she figures out how much she enjoys it.It's all about feelings, both physical and emotional.
Jake was a sweetheart, I love how he loved Kallie for who she was, but also got her to embrace her feminine side and really see how loved and valued she was. Kallie was way too insecure for me, but with her situation, it was understandable.
