Threatened by university cutbacks, Professor Abigail Bern's only hope is to publish a provocative research paper - soon. Planning to covertly observe behavior in the notorious Dark Haven BDSM club, she takes a receptionist job. When the owner calls upon her to assist in a demonstration, she's appalled. Then fascinated. Under the unyielding hands of the master known as my Liege, she discovers a need to be more than an observer.
His late wife had been the center of his life, and Xavier Leduc wants no other. But when his new receptionist does her utmost to keep an emotional distance from him, he's intrigued and digs deeper. She's adorable. Intriguingly intelligent, beautifully submissive, sweetly vulnerable. He soon realizes her defenses are keeping her on the fringe of her sexuality - and her life. As he draws her into fuller participation, she unconsciously does the same for him. She begins to fill his world.
Ever since the night she met my Liege Xavier, Abby has questioned everything she believes about herself. She's falling for the stern owner of Dark Haven and thinks he's beginning to care for her, until the day he learns why she's in his club.

"An erotic earful"
A total " page turner"-- I couldn't stop listening. Wish there was a sequel. Now to enlarge my library!
When you add two great voice actors with a story by a great author, you get magic. I read the story some time ago, and it was great. However, pairing the story with two great voice actors like Kai Kennicott and Wen Ross just brought the whole thing to life. Is it worth the credit, YES. Do yourself a favor and pick this one up.
This is my favorite book of this entire series so far ! Cherise Sinclair you are amazing !! Kai Kennicott and Wen Ross to an amazing job narrating as always!! I'm so in love work this whole series 💜💜
"Wonderful Book, Terrible Cover ^^"
Abigail is so real and wonderful to read about, and she makes great growing progress as an individual with the help of "My Liege" and her new friends. Interesting read and look into the BDSM world and the people who partake in it, and thanks to this first read of mine into the bdsm world, it makes me want to read up on the history of it. Seriously heart warming characters and--the audiobook cover does Not do this book justice. The actual ebook cover does, and I wish they had used that one instead; seriously does not do justice for Xavier's look or his hair.
I wanted to make sure I did a good job on this review so I listened to it again, and again, and again and I still find myself blushing and feeling very warm. Now what I am doing? Oh, right the review.
Abby (Abigail Bern) is a professor who desperately needs to publish or perish. She decides to write a paper on BDSM society and ends up volunteering as a receptionist at the Dark Haven private BDSM club with all of its extra duties to do her research. Xavier Leduc (My Liege) is the owner of Dark Haven and finds the new receptionist intriguing.
The book is written from two points of view (POV) and the experience greatly enhances the listener’s/reader’s enjoyment. I feel in love with the characters, though I occasionally wanted to slap them both upside the head. Both Abby and Xavier are written perfectly and we get to see the emotional walls of both open up.
From the start through the finish it is addicting with a much saner exposure to BDSM in a club as well as in the home. Abby’s fantasy towards the end was more than steamy (I say as I am turning the ceiling fan on again and it is the middle of winter during a cold spell).
My Liege of Dark Haven is not only sexy and passionate, it has some fabulously humorous moments interspersed. I got several weird looks when I would spontaneously burst out in laughter one minute and blush a few minutes later. Yes, in hindsight I probably should not have been listening to this while grocery shopping.
This was my first exposure to the tantalizing, titillating, and wonderful writing of Cherise Sinclair. Since listening to My Liege of Dark Haven the first time I admit to indulging in three more of the books from this series and one from the Shadowlands series. They will not be the last. Mistress Cherise’s writing does a brilliant job at gently bringing the reader/listener into the story as a full participant.
This is a Duet narration, meaning that the male narrator reads all of the male character lines and the female narrator does the same for the females throughout the entire book. This is as opposed to Dual when the narrators alternate reading chapters vocalizing all of the characters in that chapter. Duet is definitely my favorite type of listening especially for romance and erotica books.
The narration team of Kai Kennicott and Wen Ross is perfect! They both do an outstanding job giving the characters the perfect personalities and went above and beyond in making me feel like I was part of the story. They are now in an elite class of readers I cannot get enough of. In addition to purchasing and listening to additional stories from Dark Haven I have purchased an additional book because of their narration even though I am unfamiliar with the author.
Many thanks to Sinclair, Kennicott and Ross for adding heat and heart to my ears. I will be revisiting this story soon as well as many others from all three of you.
"Xavier's Story at Last"
I waited a long time for Xavier's story, and it was worth the wait. I think Abby was a great fit for him. I think Sinclair's strength is her empathetic characters that make you feel an immediate connection to them. Of course, Kennicott and Ross bring these characters to life like no other narrators I've ever heard. One word of warning, though. There is a long punishment scene that I really struggled listening to. It seemed excessive and too long, but it's possible that it may not bother other readers/listeners. Other than that, I absolutely loved the audiobook.
"You gotta love Cherise Sinclair"
I am really enjoying books by this author. For me she ranks up there with the best
I really liked Abby. She took responsibility for her actions but didn't give up on Xavier.
I really enjoy a strong male voice with one of these books. It makes the story much more believable.
I was moved when Abby was forgiven by the members of the club.
awesome story great characters great performance I could not get enough of this book. Xavier was so hot and dreamy and Abby was so real with her insecurities almost gave me hope for finding my Xavier Sunday
The heroine ( Abby) was annoying. As for her being 'intriguingly intelligent', think again...
Master Xavier, the Dom all subs want, has not committed to any one woman since his wife’s death four years before.
The BDSM in this tale is hot. The games Ms. Sinclair devises are so hot!!!! It's because they involve a pursuit and capture theme with a fun kinky twist.
Between the erotic journey and personal issues resolved, this story ends in a trademark Ms. Sinclair happily ever after. Its a very educational story about BDSM lifestyle.
"Outstanding Story, Extremely Improved Narration!"
This is one of my favorite Dark Haven storylines and this narration made it even better!.
Eureka! I can finally recommend buying a narration by Wen Ross. His two previous Dark Haven/ Mountain Masters narrations were abysmal. This one shows the emotion of the male characters as well as distinctive speech patterns and accents. Kai Kennicott's usual excellent narrations were even better. Looking forward to the next one.
If you like erotic romance, Cherise Sinclair is the "tops"! Great storylines told with wit, humor, and incredibly vivid erotic scenes
