Overview


The perfect place for a woman on the run to disappear…
Accused of a horrific murder she didn’t commit, former heiress Callie Ward has been a fugitive since she was sixteen—until she found the perfect hideout, Club Dominion. The only problem is she’s fallen for the club’s master, Mitchell Thorpe, who keeps her at arm’s length. Little does she know that his reasons for not getting involved have everything to do with his wounded heart…and his consuming desire for her.

To live out her wildest fantasies…
Enter Sean Kirkpatrick, a Dom who’s recently come to Dominion and taken a pointed interest in Callie. Hoping to make Thorpe jealous, she submits to Sean one shuddering sigh at a time. It isn’t long before she realizes she’s falling for him too. But the tender lover who’s seducing her body and slowly earning her trust isn’t who he claims...

And to fall in love.
When emotions collide and truths are exposed, Sean is willing to risk all to keep Callie from slipping through his fingers. But he’s not the only man looking to stake a claim. Now Callie is torn between Sean and Thorpe, and though she’s unsure whom she can trust, she’ll have to surrender her body and soul to both—if she wants to elude a killer…

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
01/13/2014
Black’s eighth Wicked Lovers kinky erotic romance (after Ours to Love) suffers from a thin plot and a blurring of the line between BDSM and abuse. Heiress Callie Ward, accused of murder, has been hiding out at BDSM club Dominion for four years in an effort to avoid authorities. She has no idea that her current master, Sean Kirkpatrick, is an undercover FBI agent trying to piece together her story. Sean is being closely watched by Callie’s boss, Mitchell Thorpe, who suspects Sean’s motives and is also driven by intense jealousy over Sean’s relationship with Callie. Eventually the two rivals work together to gain Callie’s submission in the bedroom and then clear her name. Fans of the series will appreciate the hot ménage scenes, but the romantic element is almost nonexistent, and those who feel strongly about consent will take issue with the men imprisoning Callie in misguided attempts to protect her.

    Sinfully sexy and suspenseful. Callie should have known better t

    Sinfully sexy and suspenseful. Callie should have known better than to try to run from her two Doms. Sean and Thorpe would stop at nothing in order to keep her safe. This was my first stand alone Shayla Black novel and I absolutely f&ing loved it. Callie is an amazing female lead. She tough, strong, sexy, sassy, and independent. She has been on the run for so long that she knows how to cut and run like a pro. When she starts to feel like Sean is figuring out what her real identity is she begins the cut and run process. In the blink of an eye, she is gone.
    Sean and Thorpe can’t believe it. They both know what her true identity is and become enraged that she got away from them. She has put herself in danger and their sassy sub is about to get a the spanking of a lifetime. Shayla write some amazingly sexy menage sex scenes. Holy Hell!!! Sean and Thorpe are hot as well and keep Callie on edge once they get a hold of her. I literally had to go find B.O.B. and get some relief. Even though the sex is smoking there is so much more to this story. Why does someone want Callie dead? What changed the minds of the agencies looking for her to cause them to believe that she was not guilty of family’s murder? This is what kept me turning the pages because I needed to see what was going to happen next. Who was the man in the blue military uniform?
    I am now a huge Shayla Black fan and will buying every book in this series. Her character development is superb and her story line has so many twists and turns that it keeps you on the edge of your seat.
    If you like your romance with action, intrigue, and sizzling hot sexy Doms you will love Theirs to Cherish.

    Shayla Black delivered her magic with another great story! I enjoyed learning about Callie and what she was running from and Sean's involvement in her story. I also enjoyed Thorpe's part in helping Callie even tho he figured out her past. There is suspense...danger...and a ton of sexy love scenes. I couldn't wait to see how their story ended. I highly recommend this story!

    Shayla Black returns with the eighth book in the Wicked Lover's

    Shayla Black returns with the eighth book in the Wicked Lover's series, Theirs to Cherish. Fans have been eagerly awaiting the story of Club Dominion owner, Mitchell Thorpe, but they are in for a few surprises. This book is all about secrets and the things that make a person who they are. The deep dark things that lie in our innermost depths. It also has enough action and thrills to keep readers glued to the pages, and don't forget the heart pounding sexual tension that doesn't quit throughout the book. A typical Shayla Black novel... Amazing!

    What I liked:

    Readers who follow this series have seen Mitchell Thorpe in the background of several Wicked Lover's books. He is the owner of Club Dominion and one very dominant man. He believes in rules and discipline and exacting the most pleasure and pain he can from those he chooses to deem worthy, or at least that how he has come across until this book. Readers get to see a much different side to Thorpe in this book. One in which he can barely contain his feelings. He wants to protect her and be with her in whatever capacity she needs. Black takes a background character and gives him a back story that will make fans shake their heads and say, "I knew there was a reason he acted that way!" Those who have waited for his story will certainly not be disappointed, if perhaps a bit surprised at how Black presents it.

    Callie is a character readers have glimpsed at before. She has a back story that is riveting. She has been running all her life and it doesn't look like she's going to stop any time soon. She thought she could loose herself in Club Dominion but she falls hard for the owner, in spite of herself. Callie has a tragic past and a lot of secrets. I liked the fact that she seems to have a chip on her shoulder that just the right dom would have to work on. Black shows a lot of character development with all of the characters in this book, but Callie is the one with the most to learn. 

    Trust is never easy, but when you've got a character who has never seen it, it's that much harder and more wonderful when it happens.

    Sean, is a new dom in town. He gives Callie something she has never had before. He isn't afraid to talk about his feelings and to show her what he can offer her. He grants her a kind of peace she's never experienced. But using him to make Thorpe jealous, maybe not her most brilliant plan, especially when she starts to fall for him as well. Sean isn't who he claims to be though, and his secrets are as deep as anyone's in this book. Can he be the man Callie needs him to be? I loved watching him grow, but always remain constant in his love and caring for her.

    Obviously this book is a menage story and a good one at that. I always have difficulty seeing how each person can set aside their own feelings to make a menage work.  But Black makes it work. They start out hating each other and in the end come to realize that they both love her and want to be with her.  And Black makes me believe that it can work. 

    What I didn't like:

    There was a lot of set up that took up a lot of space in the book. Space that I wished could have been used for more scenes of the three of them together. 

    Bottom Line:

    If you are looking for a erotic romance that is packed with action and suspense as well as a hot romance, this is it. Black gives you everything you need to satisfy both aspects of your reading pleasure. She pulls of the menage theme with style and makes the reader believe it can happen.

    Theirs to Cherish, the latest in Shayla Black's Wicked Lovers se

    Theirs to Cherish, the latest in Shayla Black's Wicked Lovers series is a hot tale of lust, love, and ménage. Callie is between a rock and a hard place. She's been on the run from the law for ten years, suspected of the murder of her sister and father. She's managed to stay a step ahead of police - and assassins - who want something from her. What that is, she has no idea. She's been alone. She hasn't allowed herself to feel - until she found sanctuary at Dominion. The BDSM club owned by Mitchell Thorpe. She's obsessed with the Dom, who has used her as a submissive in his demonstrations but those are the only sexual connections the two have. Despite the fact that Callie loves Thorpe. For his part Thorpe won't let himself admit to loving any woman. Not after the bitter disappointment of his past. So he indulges his dark kinky passions in his club with willing volunteers with whom he makes no emotional connections.

    But his emotions are pretty clear when Sean Kirkpatrick seduces Callie with his gentle form of domination. When she begs him for sex, he gives her what she wants, but his declaration sends her running. Again.

    The BDSM community rises up to aid the lovers. Sean and Thorpe have to find Callie before it's too late. Each has their own tortured past to overcome. Each must open their eyes and their hearts if they want to hold onto their love.

    Black's novel is a wonderful juxtaposition. Thorpe is rough, hard, and Sean is a softer dom. Together they fulfill Callie's every desire. Unlike most ménage where the heroes are friends, or brothers, or in some way connected, Thorpe and Sean are enemies from the word go. Until they have to join forces to save Callie. It's a great twist on the ménage genre, and I particularly enjoyed how Black showed up the differences in the men's approach to domination.

    The finale is a wonderful work-around for the relationship and all three characters were wonderfully crafted to be real, intense and definitely lovers you cheered for.

    My only quibble would be that the dangerous adversaries on Callie's trail could have been more present, and the final conflict a bit more intense. But it is, as said, a very, very small quibble.

    Once again another wonderful story of tortured kinky love in the world of Dominion, along with all our old favorite Wicked Lovers. Theirs to Cherish will be yours to love!

    Shayla Black is one of my fav authors. She has a way with words & action!!
    READ THIS SERIES, you will not be disappointed. The series starts with Wicked Ties (sooo hot). I don't think you have to start here with the series but it's helpful to tie in the different characters that come in and how they interact and are linked to each other.
    I new Shayla would come out with this story. After reading book 7 I knew there had to be more between Thorpe & Callie. And as a little surprise she added in a #3 , Sean. Yummy threesomes!

    Weak story

    This book had the most predictable, weak and just plain dumb story line ever. The men said and did things a man would not say, in other words it's the way a woman would talk. This made the story very unrealistic, and you can tell written by a woman, for a woman. Wish I had my money back, and the brain cells lost reading this. I never even finished it, I mean the ending is so predictable.

    Waste of time

    Definitely NOT worth the $9.99 I stupidly paid to read about two men that want the same woman call each other names and act stupid. May as well be high school. Haven't finished it, and not sure I will. Don't like leaving negative reviews, but seriously. Think twice before you splurge on this one.

    Best Book EVER!

    Callie is a very sexy, sassy, and perserverent woman. There were some very intense sex scenes, sometimes I had to pinch my eyes shut and look away. Thorpe and Sean have a strong affection for Callie, and this book is a lone stander in my intense, but not confusing catagory. Just beware, only children 12 and up should read this!
