"Grace. That word that finally meant something again. Mercy. Favor. Good will."

Fed up with play kink, Grace Warner moves to an island that embraces erotic slavery to be with a man she met online. Within hours of her arrival, everything is ripped from her, and she quickly learns play is preferable to the realities of actual enslavement.

Asher Collins has spent the past year mourning and blaming himself for the death of his slave, Darcy. When Grace catches his eye at a showing, obviously abused, he becomes obsessed with buying her and finding a way to atone for his own past sins.

Wow. Just, wow! I found this book after reading Comfort Food, and I continue to be impressed by Kitty's writing. Thought-provoking, well-written and FASCINATING!  It's a hard one to put down.

This is such a beautiful story. Very touching.

I have read all her books and this is by far the best one. It has sooooooo much to offer--suspense, sex, tenderness, as well as being very strict, stern, rigid, authoritarian, loving, evil and good winning over evil. What else could one want in a story?!! Love it and have read it at least four times--the best sign of an everlasting book.

I really liked this book. The first part is hard to get through- hard to know that these things do happen everyday in real life. But I found both of the main characters struggles to accept and understand themselves and the situations they were in compelling. This is a different kind of "love" story, with different characters than usual...one born out surviving severe trauma and abuse the best way you know how and finding happiness in the unlikeliest(sp?) of places. If you can keep an open mind this is def worth reading. Whatever your reaction or feelings, this book will affect you.

Not too long ago Kitty Thomas offered me a copy of Tender Mercies in exchange for a review. I have to admit, I was a little apprehensive after reading Guilty Pleasures. Not a bad piece for those into no-games true BDSM, but it wasn’t quite the thing for this vanilla gal. On the other hand, I absolutely LOVED Comfort Food. So my thoughts of Tender Mercies. Prologues seem to be going out of style these days. I mentioned a while back, quite a few folks skip prologues, like my daughter (to my surprise). Tender Mercies started off with a prologue, but unlike my daughter, I’m too afraid I’ll miss something to skip one. So into the prologue I delved. When I reached the end, my thoughts were, wow! that was good! It added wonderful insight into Asher’s personality and gave me an immediate connection. For those who skip prologues, I encourage you to give this one a shot. It left me quite satisfied. So we get to the meat to the story. Riding along with Grace through the first few chapters was quite scary. Her desires to enter the BSDM world superseded rational thought. Yet in a way, I could relate to her desire to give up control but being too strong-willed and defiant do so in the normal world. Still, I couldn’t imagine taking the leap of faith she did. Don’t do it! I screamed at her. Of course she didn’t listen and paid the consequences for her choices. Such horrible consequences. I felt awful about the ordeals Grace faced… almost to the point I wanted to cry for her at times. Then we have Asher. The introduction of Asher’s point of view is quite different from the prior works of Ms. Thomas. Whereas before, the males were secondary (though still important) characters in the story, this time around, we really get into the male mind. It was nice having an understanding of where he was coming from with the BDSM thing… a side I didn’t really get with the first two Kitty Thomas stories. All in all, I truly enjoyed this work. I could totally see an island like the one in the story existing. In fact, I wouldn’t be surprised if one did. It had the Anne Rice Exit to Eden kind of thing going. I didn’t fall in love with Tender Mercies like I did Comfort Food (keep in mind, only 3 works hit my all time favorites last year, Comfort Food being one of them), but Tender Mercies was well up there on the likeability scale. If you liked Comfort Food–the idea of a tortured woman finding herself–Tender Mercies might be right up your alley.

Sure, the island is not real but this book is very well so well written that it sucks you right in! Being a very happy 24/7 submissive for many years it didn't come without some very bad experiences in the beginning! So I can relate to Grace & her story. I think this should be a cautionary tale for all sub(s)/slave(s) in this age of cyber & social media age.

Scsry, evil villain, hot and brawny hero that is capable of getting over his baggage without getting whiny. Steamy to top it all off.

The author keeps you reading but all in all it's not a story that makes you feel any extreme way. Very "beginning, middle, end." Good to read if you're bored or have nothing else to read.

Very deep, emotional story. Different but very enjoyable.

This book captivated me from the very beginning. I found myself saying, don't do, don't it to Grace... and then so happy when Asher comes into the picutre.... i found their relationship enduring and so OMG moments that can't even be talked about. I like getting to see what both characters are thinking. THIS IS A GREAT READ!!!

Poor Grace goes through hell giving all rights and becoming a slave to an evil man. Asher buys her and helps her get over the abuse from another but as most of these stories they fall in love and live in there version of heaven
