An erotic battle of wills unfolds in an electrifying game of love and vengeance...

"Inventive and steamy." --M. J. Rose

Betrayed by a group of men he called friends, Edmond Dantès is wrongfully imprisoned for more than a decade. When he finally escapes his captivity, he remakes himself as the wealthy and powerful Count of Monte Cristo.

His list of those upon whom he will seek revenge is long, but it is the love of his life, Mercédès Herrera, for whom he holds his deepest loathing-for she, too, has betrayed him. He will do anything to destroy her...

Mercédès was devastated when she learned of the death of her beloved Dantès...and circumstances beyond her control have forced her into a loveless marriage.

But when the Count of Monte Cristo comes on the scene, she alone sees through his disguise and beyond the harsh, vengeful man to the one she once loved.

He is determined to destroy Mercédès and all she holds dear...she is just as determined not to succumb to this mastery.


From the seaside town of Marseille to the exotic caves of Monte Cristo Isle...Dumas'sclassic story of darkrevenge is retold from an entirely new perspective...

this story was an amazing love story with plenty of very steamy scenarios! The characters had real depth and such believable emotions, i was sucked in from the very first page and could hardly put it down untill I got to. the end! I would rcommend this book to anyone who wants more than your typical fluffy romance with no meat to it.

Colette Gale stunned erotic romance readers with her book Unmasked, an erotic version of the classic, The Phantom of the Opera. She has done it once again with Master, An Erotic Novel of The Count of Monte Cristo. If you are a big fan of the most recent and romantic movie version of this classic story, you will have to overlook this newly erotic written version and realize that Ms. Gale has once again done her research, using letters and a journal written by Mercedes during the time of Edmund's imprisonment, thus blending much truth to the story, together with well-written erotically sensual scenes. Edmund Dantes has spent most of his young years imprisoned in the Chateau d'If, set up by those he thought to be his friends, for crimes he did not commit. Once he finds a way to escape, he spends years traveling the world as a pirate, smuggler and many other identities, collecting huge wealth, and thus becoming the Count of Monte Cristo. All these years he has also planned a perfect revenge for those he believes have wronged him. Once he returns to France he begins the destructive revenge of those who have hurt him. In this version, he believes none has betrayed or hurt him more than his love and former fiancé Mercedes, who is now married to his best friend and greatest enemy, The Count of Mondego. It is Mercedes who seems to take the full brunt of his revenge by his use of her in a highly sexual way. This may be a disturbing switch for readers and fans of the original toned down version of The Count of Monte Cristo. As Edmund uses Mercedes as a sexual slave, he comes to realizes that his vengeance against her and her son does not feel so sweet. He finds he cannot ignore her touch and beautiful body. It only enhances his memory of a long lost true love. Mercedes also realizes something is drawing her closer to this mysterious Count. The more she gives in and offers him the use of her body, the more she feels something familiar about this highly sensual man. He has re-awakened her passions and reminds her too much of her Edmund, her one and only true love, a love that has never died, and one she has never been able to forget. As passions re-ignite even stronger than when they were in their youth, Edmund discovers that her son is his son as well and that Mercedes married Mondego in order to sacrifice for their son. Can he convince himself to forgive and save Mercedes and his son from the very evil that has hurt him for so many years? Can he convince Mercedes to forgive him? Is his vengeance really as satisfying as planned? Can he also come to realize that forgiveness and moving on with his life together with those he loves is what matters the most? Ms. Gale has once again given us a different look at a classic, masterfully enhanced with a highly sensual and tastefully written erotic romantic touch.

His name no longer mattered as he became Prisoner # 34. He spoke to no one during his ordeal and only the memory of Mercedes kept him alive. Ten years after he was betrayed he escaped from the prison his enemies sent him too, now in 1822 he takes on the persona of the Count of Monte Cristo as Edmond Dantes he plans to destroy those who destroyed him.---------------- His first target is the woman he loved Mercedes who betrayed him by marrying his most loathed foe. Edmond pretends to be Sinbad the sailor in that masquerade he kidnaps Mercedes and seduces her. When she meets him as the Count, she begins to realize this is her beloved Edmond, whose acrimoniousness hurts her. She wants him happy, but also wants him as she never stopped loving him whether he is Sinbad, the Count or just her Edmond.------------------ As she did with the Phantom of the Opera (see UNMASQUED), Colette Gale heats up the exciting Dumas¿ classic The Adventures of the Count of Monte Cristo by adding sexual themes such as bondage, domination, ménage and voyeurism. Edmond is much more sinister than in the novel or the movies as he holds Mercedes culpable for betraying him and enacts vengeance by dominating her. However, he will soon learn the error of his ways as his captive knows who he is from the kisses even though he is different, filled with more animal rage than her tender Edmond. Regency exotic romance fans will appreciate this much darker version of the tale, but those who cherish the original will take umbrage with Ms. Gale¿s liberties.---------------- Harriet Klausner

This telling of the Count of Monte Cristo is definanly more interesting than the original. If you like descriptive hot sex. The title doesn't really fit the book but once you start to read it doesn't matter.
