Luna Gregory has everything she needs. A dream job as personal assistant to the Marchioness of Lionsbridge, and a home on the 500-year-old Arborage Estate. But her encounter with Swedish entrepreneur Stefan Lundgren, charismatic, devastatingly attractive-and third in line to inherit the estate-leaves her irresistibly captivated. What Stefan doesn’t know is that he and Luna have met before, that he is drawn by more than just her English reserve and quiet beauty. Luna has her reasons for concealing the truth from him-she’s built an entire life for herself based on keeping the past in the past.
Stefan initiates Luna into a world of sexual exploration where they push the boundaries of pleasure and control, the ties that bind them,literally, in desire. Not content with possessing Luna physically, Stefan wants all of her. But he is keeping his own secrets, secrets that could drive them apart.
I was looking for something different; a little break from the cozies and mysteries that I enjoy so much. I cam across Lord and Master and was intrigued by the contemporary romance’s description. As I started reading, I quickly found myself captivated and hanging on every word, urging my eyes to stay open for just one more chapter.
Luna is a personal assistant to the Marchioness of an English estate. She loves her job and is very good at what she does. Luna can handle just about any curve that her boss throws at her – but Stefan Lundgren, the nephew of the Marchioness and a consultant hired to asses the future of the estate, doesn’t play by the rules. As Luna and Stefan get closer, Luna puts her whole self in his hands and on the line. But a dangerous and sordid turn of events may break the pair apart – and destroy Luna.
Lord and Master is what Fifty Shades of Grey wishes it was – sultry, steamy, and driven by story instead of just sex. It’s sexy without being salacious, featuring bedroom romance rich with lush detail; but not so much so as to be gratuitous.
I loved that author Kait Jagger creates the character of Luna as a friend and colleague with a full life of her own, rather than a flat character simply waiting for a man. Lord and Master is indulgent and magnetic. I stayed up way past my bedtime on more than one night simply because I needed to know what happened next. Now I feel the same — I can’t wait to see where Kait takes Luna, Stefan, and us all next.
I received a free copy of Lord and Master in exchange for my honest feedback and review. All opinions expressed are my own and a favorable review was not promised at the time of receipt.
