Her Highland Master

Availability: Ready to download

Zoey Mills's life is in shambles. She’s been accused of leaking her upper crust Hollywood clients’ data to an online magazine for a large payday. After a wine and chocolate-filled evening of drowning her sorrows, she determines that her best course of action is to leave her home in sunny Los Angeles for a week-long vacation in the Scottish Highlands. It’s the only way she Zoey Mills's life is in shambles. She’s been accused of leaking her upper crust Hollywood clients’ data to an online magazine for a large payday. After a wine and chocolate-filled evening of drowning her sorrows, she determines that her best course of action is to leave her home in sunny Los Angeles for a week-long vacation in the Scottish Highlands. It’s the only way she can escape from the fact that her image is being splashed across the nightly news – and it might actually give her a chance to consider what her next move should be, now that her Great Master Life Plan has disintegrated into dust. Unfortunately, she's only just landed and is navigating the tiny roads in her rental car when a freak early autumn snow storm hits. Zoey finds herself stranded and winds up on the doorstep of Mullardoch Manor; home of the sexy Scotsman, Declan McDougal, who is her every dark fantasy brought to life. Declan is one of the founding members of The Dungeon Fantasy Club. As a billionaire businessman and a Dom, he prefers to keep his sexual preferences and tastes away from the boardroom. He’s also become bored, not just with the club, but also with his life. None of the subs he meets can hold his interest for more than a night and it's been that way for a long time. He just never wants more than a brief encounter. At least, not since his ex-fiancée cheated on him with another Dom and ran away. However, that all changes when Zoey barrels into his home uninvited and upends his luxurious but stale existence. When Zoey finds herself without a place to stay, Declan makes her a tantalizing but scandalous offer: Stay in his home for the week, free of charge, and spend each night warming his bed. Or any other time of the day, for that matter. Deciding she doesn't have much to lose and possibly everything to gain, Zoey accepts. With Zoey’s every sweet subsequent cry of ecstasy, Declan uncovers a sub who warms not only his bed, but slowly thaws his frozen, scarred heart. And as Zoey explores her deepest fantasies, even as he spanks her bare bottom for disobeying his rules, she finds herself wanting more than just a week of unmitigated pleasure with the Dom. Things seem to be progressing perfectly, both in bed and out, when Zoey’s past catches up with her. When he feels betrayed once more, and fears the woman he has grown to care for is not who she says she is, will Declan still be willing to risk his heart to become Her Highland Master?

    ARC received for review 3.5 stars A wrong turn ends with insta-lust, insta-sub and a menage. Lots of hot bedroom and dungeon scenes. Declan was a very yummy Dom with an accent, and so was his butler. The story seemed secondary to the sex. But it was a good start to a series.

There is one thing that bothers me in the writing.at some point the lyrical description gets a bit over board. For example: Zoey smells like vanilla and peaches and two sentences later she’s smelling like rain on a summers day. It’s not a big issue and it doesn’t keep me from a high rating, but still... Of course- since I’ve enjoyed this story in audio - there’s the performance. Although I enjoy dual reading, Mister Plug did an excellent job IMO. His voice is very pleasant and his interpretation of Declan McDougal is very sexy. Both the author and the narrator have landed firmly on my favorite list. review also on Audible

However it was the complete suspension of disbelief OR accepting a heroine who was quite simply TSTL that turned me off. So said heroine gets lost in the highlands in a snowstorm. She crashes into a ditch and seeks refuge at a manor house she had spotted (I'm fine with this so far). After collapsing due to being so cold the 'hero' of the book strips both of them down to their birthday suits and cuddles up to her in a bed 'to stave of hypothermia'. THIS was where my 'OMG really?' radar was triggered. Um - could you not have left your underwear (and more importantly hers - she is a total stranger) on? The sharing body heat would still have worked. And he was turned on by her unconscious body - hello! Pervert warning, pervert warning!!! Now me if I woke up starkers in a strangers bed I would not be all gooey eyed and thankful he'd 'saved my life', I'd be thinking 'rape' and looking for the nearest object to use as a weapon. Oh but his EYES are so kind she was instantly in lust with him. THEN he goes to find something for her to wear, returning with a robe for her. He is still STARK BOLLOCK NAKED and insists she go to him to be dressed in said robe. Her response? No, not 'F off you freaking weirdo' ( which I'm sure would be the normal response in the situation) oh no, our heroine thinks 'Why, not? He's already seen what I've got to offer.' Well at that point I was out. A pervert 'hero' who saw an unconscious girl and wanted to bone her and an idiot heroine who was fine with waking up and finding herself totally naked in a strangers bed. Perhaps this sounds like a book you'd love to read, it was just too far fetched for me. I have heard that her books get better, so I might give number 3 or 4 a try but this one? Nah.

Well she throws the money at him on her way out the door, catches a ride with the tow truck driver, catches the train to Edinburgh (while on the train her old boss calls and apologizes and says come back to work - we found out you were set up - she tosses some attitude and says my lawyer will call you) and as she is walking to the airport the police pick her up - take her to a hotel and deliver her back to Declan. Well here is where the story just drops. He says "I'm sorry I love you" and she melts and forgives him - really???? The epilogue is a wedding announcement. Now What happened with the lawyer/old boss? what happened to the man who set her up? The who reason she was in Scotland is just left hanging...... The author did great at setting up and telling the story then rushes to close it out and leaves the readers hanging....lost a good review .....

I particularly loathe the statement ‘every sub who enters the club without a Master is agreeing to have sex with every dom who orders her to’. WTF? Nope. Not happening. Informed consent isn’t really found anywhere in the pages of this story. The encounter scenes are very hot, but I had a difficult time getting past the fact that this book threw one of the three basic tenets of the Lifestyle right out the window. Safe? Sane? Consensual? Well… maybe it didn’t really keep any of them. I’ve heard the series gets better by book three, so I’ll keep going for now.

    I think if this story had just stuck to what it was - a smutty romp - I would have liked it. But the attempts at telling a real story just made me mad. This was romanticized BDSM at its worst. Her first introduction to his world? Public humiliation. Agreed upon limits? What for? She was up for anything. Physical repercussions? Not very romantic. Mental repercussions? Oh no, she's in love with him. Then he finds out about her 'secret' and spurns her, treating her like a prostitute.

It was instant attraction and love. The sexy times were sexy, but I just didn't feel like they jelled together. Declan was arrogant and at times I had a hard time liking him.

Declan allows Zoey to stay for the week for “free” but he has another form of payment he wants from her * smirky smirk * Zoey stays because the B&B gave her reservation away and frankly needs a place to stay in a foreign country. She left America because she was fired and set up to take the fall for a security breach at her work. Declan and Zoey fall for each other over the course of a week BUT someone from Zoey’s past shows up and exposed her troubles back home.... This book has A LOT OF SEX. Kinky, hardcore sex. M/M/F sex. Spanking (hand and paddle), anal sex, ménage, clamps, oral, vaginal, bondage, and voyeurism. I will say Zoey is vanilla coming into a kink world and even though she had a choice and gave consent it kinda felt like if she would have said no to the sex she would be on her own in a snowstorm. Maybe that’s my bias? The only thing that bummed me out to this otherwise perfect little story was the way Declan handled the info about Zoey’s past and what he did to reconcile. Basically he was a dick and then thought rose petals and a nice hotel room was enough to smooth over calling her a liar and not allowing her to explain anything. And the damn epilogue! A month passed and really? Yeah I get this is a standard erotic romance where HEA reigns supreme but for reals?!!!

    Her Highland Master started out well enough and then it progressed way too quickly and intensely for my liking. The story in between all the bdsm was decent, but to fall in love that completely and that quickly was distracting to me. The writing was good, but I didn't love the story. This was my first time reading anything by Anya Summers so maybe I'll find a something else by her more to my liking.

    Received an ARC from NetGalley for an honest review. So this was an interesting premise...but there was something missing. I'm not sure if it's because the relationship went from 0 to 60 in about 3 hours or if I didn't have enough backstory to connect, but I had a hard time. Don't get me wrong, the love scenes were super hot, but it felt like this would not have happened in a real BDSM club. I don't know...maybe that's just me. Also, it bordered on insta-love and that's hard to do really well.

So I had no idea if this was going to be a crazy steamy historical romance or a crazy steamy contemporary romance. To be honest, I wouldn't have been disappointed no matter what it ended up being but in this case, it was a really super crazy hot contemporary romance! I liked Zoey's story.

To be honest, I wouldn't have been disappointed no matter what it ended up being but in this case, it was a really super crazy hot contemporary romance! I liked Zoey's story. I was worried that I would have to read through the entire story of how Zoey lost her Hollywood PR job. I'm happy to report that I didn't have to do so. It started right off with Zoey doing her best to sort of reboot her life. I loved that she went to Scotland to sort of hide AND to figure out what to do next. I felt like that was really relatable and that it was a REALLY great idea. The only thing I didn't like was towards the end of the book when Zoey is re-accused of what she did back in Hollywood, she didn't deny it. In fact, she says "Yes" when asked if she did it even though the frigging answer was NO, she didn't do anything wrong!!!!!! Why would she say yes?! I was so pissed at her and it sort of spoiled my attitude towards her. Declan was pretty cool. As expected, he was tall, dark, and handsome. Since he was Scottish, OF COURSE I pictured Gerard Butler! I liked that Declan was so sure of himself and all that good stuff. But it wasn't surprising because Declan is a Dom and he's exactly what you want and expect in a Dom. So I won't say any more about that. Either way, he was sweet and kind throughout the book, which was why his attitude change at the end was so unexpected. I can absolutely see how the author had gotten him there but I was still surprised and I don't mean that in a good way. This is an erotic romance so the Sexy Time was ridiculously hot and plentiful. There's some voyeurism, M/F/M, spanking, and all the usual suspects when it comes to a BDSM-themed erotic romance. I thought the romance between Zoey and Declan was a little speedy but the book is less than 200 pages so I suppose it had to happen pretty quick. I didn't notice it at the time but I was definitely left wishing there were more. And THAT I mean in a good way! Overall, I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I would absolutely read this author again. It looks like this book is Book 1 in a series so I'm excited to see what happens next! It seems to be like the story could move on to the next couple as this story had a concrete ending. I thought the characters were interesting and sexy and fun. There were plenty of laughs, maybe a little mystery, and there's a chance that I got a little misty-eyed in one of the scenes in the book. I would recommend this book to fans of erotic romance who want to travel outside of the US!

    The dialogue doesn't feel very Scottish. there is a ridiculous amount of lass calling that it feels forced. many of her responses are short with yeses. The scene where she goes down to wander the dungeon level seemed confusing and I thought somehow she was in some behind the scenes area since she was wandering in her bathrobe which seemed really strange.

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. An erotic romance, very light on the romance and plot. Main protagonist, Mia, stumbles into a Scottish estate that is actually (happens to be) a BDSM lifestyle club. Ends with the lamest HEA I ever read. Awarding two stars for hot men and juicy MMF love play.

The idea that this guy just has a 24-7 kink club in his basement isn't very believable but it's a LOT of fun to imagine and sometimes suspension of belief is required for these kind of books. Zoey comes across as really believable in the beginning and you really feel bad for what she's going through. I did find a few things problematic (which I'll describe in a second) but I am honestly confused by the harsh 1 and 2 star reviews that I saw. The book has a LOT right and I really did enjoy the read so I can't imagine what set people off so badly unless they just aren't into kinky reads. In which case... well it was clearly spelled out for them so I dunno. Some plot spoilers below. Where I had a problem was with a few things. First Declan is so traumatized by what his ex did that he can never trust another woman. Yet he immediately falls for this woman in like 10 minutes. Their relationship moves extremely fast and he's ready to keep her after a few days--but then he finds out something bad about her and throws her out of the house without even giving her a chance to explain. Then he's talked out of it and runs off to find her after ten minutes. The back and forth there was giving me whiplash. I was so angry at him at that point that I didn't want her to ever forgive him. (Though she does and it's HEA time.) Earlier in the book I was so mad at /her/ I wanted him to do MUCH more than he did. This is like blackbeard's wife, the second he leaves she just has to go and snoop. Well, that's just rude and it didn't really come off like she was doing it on purpose to be a brat and get punished. It came off like she had no manners. As far as the D/s it was fine but I felt like there was a lot more emphasis on sex than D/s, especially for what was supposed to be punishments. This is the first book of a series though so I'm interested in what happens further in.

    Wow! What an awesome read! What else could a girl ask for but a drop-dead gorgeous Scotch alpha male? Well, two of them I guess. This is the first from Ms. Summers that I have had the utmost pleasure of reading, and I can certainly attest that I not only love her style, but her characters as well. I definitely hope it won't be the last of her work that I will read. She has managed to capture my attention with the first page, and maintained my interest throughout, right up to the last word.

I definitely hope it won't be the last of her work that I will read. She has managed to capture my attention with the first page, and maintained my interest throughout, right up to the last word. When life throws her the equivalent of a fireball, falsely accused of releasing delicate information regarding high profile clients for money, being investigated, and fired from the job she loves, down and out Zoey, with the encouragement of her sister and best friend, leaves sunny California and heads to Scotland, only to find herself in the middle of an unpredictable snow blizzard, and in the ditch on a road in the middle of nowhere. The last thing Jared expected to find when he went to answer the door in the middle of the snowstorm, was a half-frozen woman, dripping on the rug, already inside. Now, how was he supposed to explain this to his best friend and boss. But when Declan spots the lass on the floor in the entryway, he knows that he was to get her warmed up as soon as possible before hypothermia sets in. One look at the petite woman and deep down in his gut, he knows life will no longer be the same. When his Dom instincts kick in, all he wants to do is protect the woman now in his arms. Will he get the chance to taste her the way he wants to? Introduce her to his way of life? Or will she fly the coup as soon as she discovers just what goes on in the dungeon? Awesome read you won't want to miss. Looking forward to more from this author.

Zoey's life came undone when she was accused of selling her clients info to the tabloids. She had been blackballed from her business so she decided to take a trip to Scotland to clear her head. As she is traveling to get to the bed and breakfast she booked a horrible snow storm hit and she winds up in a ditch. She gets out of the car and starts walking because the car was damaged. She was able to get to a house and they let her in then she passes out. When she wakes up she is in bed with a big warm naked body next to her he was keeping her warm as a chill went through her bones. Declan tells her that she had passed out and even with the covers she was still cold. Zoey and Declan start to become Dom and Sub for the week she would be staying with him. Zoey is starting to fall in love with Declan. Declan felt the same way but he had a cautious feeling regarding Zoey because of his ex girlfriend. Just when things are going great her past comes back to haunt her when she hears a familiar voice In Declan's office. When she walks into the office her ex client is sitting there and he proceeds to tell Declan what happen. Declan yells at her to get out and leave immediately. Zoey gets her things and was ready to leave her room Jared the butler came in to bring her some food before she leaves. On the tray was an envelope when she opened it and there was money in it she went ballistic. Zoey goes into his office and throws the envelope back at him and then leaves. Will Declan come to his senses and go after her? Will Zoey go back to her boring life? This is a new author for me and I am glad I got to read this book through ARC.

    Zoey was having a very bad time in her life and she decided to go on a holiday, of sorts. Ends up in a ditch during a freezing storm and later in the arms of Declan, a Dom that has a problem with trust after his ex-woman left him scared inside. This was a short book, in my opinion, it ended too fast for what it was promising to be. That being said, I enjoyed the plot and the characters from beginning to end. What I did not like was Declan's reaction to the knowledge of why Zoey was on vacation ou Zoey was having a very bad time in her life and she decided to go on a holiday, of sorts.

What I did not like was Declan's reaction to the knowledge of why Zoey was on vacation outside of the US. I can consciously understand why things happen in the way they did. I can see the book structure and get it, but my little heart does not accept Declan's reaction. If he was my man I swear to whatever you want that I would make him grovel to get me back. There is no way he would but I think that climax in the story could have been done in some way differently so it wouldn't feel like a slap in the face and that she slapped his hand for that. I would recommend this story to those that love some kinky sexy times in their stories, power control, and a little threesome along the way.

    Master the storm, master his insecurities The storm Zoey literally finds herself in at the beginning is a good metaphor for her life. It seems to be swirling out of control, and the relief she was hoping for doesn't look to be so promising. Well, until she meets Declan that is. His indecent proposal makes her feel more alive than ever, but her past is still trying to suck her down. And Declan doesn't seem able to let go of his. Their relationship is steamy and explosive. Now why didn't this book Master the storm, master his insecurities The storm Zoey literally finds herself in at the beginning is a good metaphor for her life.

His indecent proposal makes her feel more alive than ever, but her past is still trying to suck her down. And Declan doesn't seem able to let go of his. Their relationship is steamy and explosive. Now why didn't this book earn 5 stars from me? It felt like it lagged a bit toward the end of the middle. I got board (not the right word, but I can't think of another) when Jared became more of a participant because I thought that that would have brought back Declan's insecurities about his ex more because of how he found her in their bed. I speed read the parts-other than the first instance when Declan was trying to get her to be less shy-when Jared joined them. I just felt that it ruined the purity of the relationship between Declan and Zoey. But when Declan went to get her back, that was very sweet and sexy. I voluntarily reviewed an advanced reader copy of this book that I got from Booksprout.

    Zoey finds herself seeking refuge in a storm, landing at Declan’s door, where his butler, Jared, finds her. The setup is a beautiful metaphor for her life, as after the death of her parents and being framed (and publicly humiliated) by a coworker, she’s seeking emotional safety and an escape from the uncontrollable chaos that is her life. She finds all that and so much more than she ever bargained for at Declan’s Scottish estate. Declan has no trouble finding women to warm his bed, but finding on Zoey finds herself seeking refuge in a storm, landing at Declan’s door, where his butler, Jared, finds her. The setup is a beautiful metaphor for her life, as after the death of her parents and being framed (and publicly humiliated) by a coworker, she’s seeking emotional safety and an escape from the uncontrollable chaos that is her life. She finds all that and so much more than she ever bargained for at Declan’s Scottish estate. Declan has no trouble finding women to warm his bed, but finding one that both fits his lifestyle and isn’t trying to fleece his wallet proves to be quite a challenge. He is immediately attracted to Zoey, despite her complete unfamiliarity with BDSM, and their romance slowly grows as they start to open up to and trust each other. But when the secret of her past comes out, how will Declan handle the truth? And just how does Jared fit into all of this? As expected with a book that incorporates a BDSM club, the love scenes are sensuously detailed and definitely far from tame. If that’s your thing, these books were written for you. And beyond the smexiness is a classic love story with deep emotional impact and a beautiful HEA.
