Fantasies begin at the threshold of Le Club d’Esclavage.

Natalie Buchanan has been working non-stop for six weeks. Determined to enjoy a rare weekend off, she winds up at the mysterious Le Club d’Esclavage.

Natalie had read about the bondage club, and although she’d been mildly curious about submissive pleasures, she never imagined she’d set foot inside.And now that she has, the erotic atmosphere of domination and submission sends her scrambling for the exit.

Before she can escape, she’s approached by a leather-hooded, bare-chested man who whispers a deep, sultry, “You are mine…”


Review: HOT! At the Dungeon Master’s Hand is the first book in the Le Club d’Esclavage series by Jennifer Cole.  I chose this book because I enjoy reading about first time experiences in BDSM clubs.

Natalie’s two best friends Megan and Dani convince her to go out and relax after a very long project at work is finished.  Natalie is a strong willed, and courageous woman has no idea where she is going until she arrives at the club. It takes a lot of courage to step outside your boundaries especially when it’s sprung onto you.

Max is the owner of the BDSM club Natalie’s friends take her too.  He has been interested in Natalie for a while. Max is a very private person.  He appears in a mask so Natalie does not know who he is.

The author did a great job on the sex scenes in the story being very realistic and steamy. The characters had tons of chemistry together. Natalie and Max burned up the pages when they were together.

This is a hot erotic story, but it’s a fantasy.  In real life there are discussions that need to take place first.  I did not like that while introducing Natalie to the BDSM lifestyle there was not talk of limits and safe word. I find that not very authentic, especially since Max owns the club. Story or not, this is very dangerous.  Someone could get very hurt without a safe word.

Overall this is a incredibly hot and well written short story.  I cannot wait to read the rest of
the books in the series.
