To Command and Collar (Shadowlands #6) by Cherise Sinclair

I read this one a good bit back but the poor thing's just been languishing in my draft reviews folder. Figured was about time to pull it out and get it all glossed up and pretty for yall ;)
Determined to find the human traffickers preying on Shadowlands’ submissives, Master Raoul gets himself invited to a small slave auction. Once informed, the FBI orders him to reject the limited choices so the slavers will invite him to the big auction. To Raoul’s shock, one of the slaves is the kidnapped friend of a Shadowlands sub. She has a scarred body…and an unbroken spirit. He can’t leave her behind. Ruining the FBI’s carefully laid plans, he buys her.

Kimberly’s freedom has come at a devastating price: the other women are still slaves. An FBI raid is their only hope for rescue. Desperate to help the Feds locate the big auction, she agrees to pose as Master Raoul’s slave. Wearing a collar again is terrifying, but under the powerful dominant’s care, Kim starts to heal and then to blossom. This is what she’s been drawn to—and fled from—her entire life.

She escaped the slavers who captured her body—can she escape the master who’s captured her heart?

“You're very lovely, gatita."

Her brows pulled together, and she gave him a skeptical stare.

"Do not look at your master as if he's an idiot.” 
And I've now Google searched...pervertables, fire play--which omg I'm so curious!-- vampire claws and a variety of Spanish swears! Damn but it's fun reading one of Sinclair's books. lol I absolutely love this series and have never been disappointed but going in I knew it would be hard to read parts of To Command and Collar as Raoul helps Kim deal with escaping a sex slave ring and they continue working to save the other women still in it's grasp.

The quick of it is that there's a lot of nasty happening in the BDSM community and submissives are being kidnapped and sold into a sex slave ring which has led Raoul to a slave auction where he spots Kim--the missing friend of one of the Shadowland submissives. Once she's safe the two take on the roles of Master and slave to help save the women left behind and to help her heal from the ordeal she's been through. It was a pretty intense and emotional ride for sure but one that had plenty of light, fun moments as well and some blasted steamy ones too. Whew!
“You spanked me,” she told him.

“I did.” He lifted her shoulders high enough to push a wedge pillow under the pad. “And I enjoyed it very much. You have a very spankable ass, no?” 
Kim and Raoul were a pretty amazing pair. And oh they had so much to work through. Kim has her fair share of emotional issues after being at the hands of the traffickers and suffering their abuse. I loved how Raoul worked her through everything though. He was just an amazing hero and damn such a Dom! He's one I was instantly comfortable with and wanted to just latch onto. Aaaannnnd *grins* he was totally rocking my favorite piercing!! *squeals*
“She rubbed her cheek on his chest like a sleepy cat. “I like when you hold me.”

Dios, she was going to break his heart. “I like when I hold you too.” 
There were some very emotional scenes, some scorching hot ones--oh you know like some naughty subbies hiding from their Doms on a boat outing and some shiver worthy punishments that happened as a result *nods*. I really loved the addition of all of the other doms/subs in the book. It's such a great group of men and women. They added a great layer of support and some needed humor to the situation everyone was in.

Sinclair once again wowed me and brought together such an emotional and powerful romance that'll heat you right the hell up and make you beg for more! Everything about To Command and Collar... from the difficult and heart breaking moments as Kim healed to the light, sassy and fun ones between the different characters and the investigations just made for a wonderful experience. Definitely one to pick up if you enjoy the series or have a hankering for BDSM romance at it's finest.

Have you read Sinclair? Have a favorite?
