From Bestselling Erotic Romance and Erotica Author Erika Masten
A Domination And Submission Romance Novel
THE RINGMASTER: CIRQUE DE PLAISIR
Cirque de Plaisir. Circus of Pleasure. An upscale underground theatrical pageant of desire and allure. A masked BDSM spectacle bringing forbidden fantasies to life for the select few with the power, wealth, and influence to secure an invitation.
For Donovan Haigh, the man they all call Ringmaster, the Cirque de Plaisir is illusion, showmanship, and domination brought to the level of performance art. It is the culmination and affirmation of his grasp of human nature mixed with business acumen and sheer force of will. And no one dares ask what wounds and personal losses underlie the Ringmaster's resolve to maintain that unwavering control.
For Olivia Keane, the Circus of Pleasure is a vision in the night, a hunger in the dark, and a promise of freedom couched in the terms of submission. Become the Ringmaster's slave and escape the grasp of her manipulative, belittling family. Succumb to the tightrope-taut sexual tension between the showman Dom and herself and blossom in the warmth of the spotlight and Donovan Haigh's embrace.
But when the Ringmaster's slave becomes the star of the show, drawing the lion's share of attention and princely sums for private command performances, will Donovan be willing to share either the spotlight or his submissive? The Ringmaster's hold on Olivia and his own self-control begins to fray as powerful admirers try to woo her away, and at least one suitor proves he is not who he seems. Old pains and family hatreds will not be so easy to escape for the Ringmaster and his slave, even in their secreted world of glamour and passion.
Length: 69,700 words or approximately 275 traditional print pages.

Finally an sdm book with a new twist. The setting is as suggested in the title, a pleasure circus. It was refreshing to read a story that involves more than an innocent, inexperienced poor girl who is introduced to the dominant submissive culture by a gorgeous rich guy who falls in love with her. The traveling circus of pleasure offers an interesting group of characters who entertain and excite audiences throughout Europe. Olivia escapes her wealthy, controlling uncle by joining up with the circus. Donovan, the Ringmaster trains her for the highly erotic role of his assistant/submissive. The story begins with her introduction to the circus by her friend and continues on with a combination of erotica, suspense, and adventure. Refreshing.
Come join the circus... Olivia wants to get away from her overbearing family and jumps at the chance to run away with the circus. Only this circus puts pleasure in the center ring and the spotlight is on Olivia. Soon she's falling for the darkly sensual ringmaster who commands her both on and off stage. Can they survive the fireworks of their passion or will the lovers be torn apart? You'll have to read to find out. Very creative story with a brooding yet caring dominant hero. Wish this kind of circus would come to my town... You can always trust Erika Masten to deliver a great romance. Her command of language and story are superb...she never disappoints. Highly recommend.
But still needs a little more editing. i found quite a few errors. Some were verb/subject agreement errors and a few spelling errors. But i did enjoy the book. A little surprised at the errors though.
