Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Holland, aka Cheyenne McCray, continues the Wonderland series (after Taken by Passion) with an unabashedly kinky erotic romance first published online as King of Spades (Ellora’s Cave, 2003). High-powered attorney Alexi O’Brien has spent a year searching for her twin sister, Alice, little knowing she’s become the Queen of Hearts in Tarok, a fantasy realm where women are sexually submissive. Darronn, the King of Spades, draws Alexi into Tarok as his ordained mate, but drama ensues when he demands her subservience. Foolishly, he concludes that he needs time to win her over before revealing Alice’s whereabouts. Though the suspicious Alexi comes to crave Darronn’s sexual dominance, her explosive fury when she learns his secret teaches him a thing or two about equality. (Nov.)
From the Publisher
"Delivers a highly erotic fantasy ... forcefully written sex scenes and ... strong characters."

    Is anything ever as it seems?

    Alexi O'Brien is searching for her twin sister, who mysteriously went missing a year ago. The last place Alexi would have thought to look is within an alternate universe found by stepping through the mirror and right into the arms of a man. However, the world she has found herself in apparently is the realm of a pushy, overbearing man, no wait he is a tiger now who drew her into the mirror.

    King Darronn is the Rules of the Kingdom of Spades and lives in the alternate world where he rules equally with his other three brothers. When he went in search of his mate, the cards led him to Alexi. When Darronn found her, there was nothing that would stop him from bringing her to his world, alternate universe or not.

    Darronn rules by command and is used to everyone following his orders, which Alexi clearly states she is not going to do. No way is he telling her what to do despite how amazing Darronn looks, or how her desire is overrunning any logical thought process. Too quickly, they both learn that you do not always have to be the masters of your passion all the time sometimes you can let your mate control the rhythm of your existence.

    Can Alexi find her sister and convince Darronn that they are equal partners? Only time and love will tell.

    Yikes, this book is a wonderful experience! The readers will never stop be amazed by the detailed descriptions of the location and the dynamics of the characters. Readers will be thrilled to go to a place where passion is as important as dominance.

    Great story about teaching a man learning that he doesn't have to be dominant in all things, esp. not when it comes to the woman he loves.

    This is a wonderful reprint of the second erotic Wonderland E-book (by Cheyenne McCray).

    In Tarok, King of Spades Darronn still fears for his subjects though twin hopes recently appeared. The mate of High King Jarron, Queen Alice of Hearts became pregnant and gave birth to werecubs. However, the hope that the end of Mikaela of Malachad's reign of sorcery terror is over has been muted by no other birthing in the four kingdoms.

    Meanwhile In San Francisco Alice's twin sister attorney Alexi O'Brien has given up her life of one night stands in a futile search to find her missing sister who vanished a year ago. Believing she is his mate, Darronn abducts Alexi taking her to Tarok; where he as a Dom orders her to be his Sub just like her sibling. When she scorns his advances, he assumes she needs time to adjust to his dominance over her and fails to take her to see her sister. Although she enjoys his sexual control, independent and feisty Alexi suspects her so called mate hides something from her, which she deduces involves Alice.

    This is a wonderful reprint of the second erotic Wonderland E-book (by Cheyenne McCray). Once again the story line is character driven by the heroine who enjoys her BDSM escapades with Daronn, but remains dedicated to her cause and when she learns the truth she will be pissed off enough that her beloved better keep his penis inside of armor. Readers will appreciate this enticing erotic fairy tale of S&M sex under the city.
