Tender Mercies Kindle Edition
Fed up with play kink, Grace Warner moves to an island that embraces voluntary enslavement to be with a man she met online. Within hours of her arrival, everything is ripped from her, and she quickly learns play is preferable to reality.
Asher Collins has spent the past year mourning and blaming himself for the death of his slave, Darcy. When Grace catches his eye at a showing, obviously abused, he becomes obsessed with buying her and finding a way to atone for his own past sins.
REVIEWS (author blurbs):
“Kitty Thomas’s hottest book yet . . . emotionally gripping and painfully real . . . impossible to read and remain untouched.” – Annabel Joseph, author of Owning Wednesday

“I have never been more invested in a piece of fiction in my life. Kitty Thomas writes with a passion and purpose so pure she makes her readers live and breathe every word.” – Emma Petersen, author of Reign of Pleasure
“An eerie and disturbing story tempered with compassion and love. I couldn’t put it down.” – Fallon Blake, author of Wrapped Around Your Finger
“Intense and dark. Tender and sweet.” -Nattie Jones, author of The Street Urchin

I'm now left wondering if maybe I do like slave master books?!
Another reviewer said they hated it and they loved it and every emotion in between. And that about sums it up.
Grace puts herself in a stupid, dangerous situation and pays the price. This will be too much for some readers.

Like most of her books I wasn't sure what I was going to get when I began Tender Mercies but again she produced an adrenaline packed story. Tender Mercies (well named) introduces the reader to the island dedicated to promoting a Master/Slave society where only the death of the slave warrants punishment. She explores the perversions of kink and the traumas that captivity brings and follows this up with the struggle of post-traumatic stress.
Kitty Thomas doesn't write smut- well not to me she doesn't as her books (I believe) are above that. Her sex scenes are powerful and they go from sensuous and serious to delicious and disturbing. Her writing takes you on a journey as it leads you into the storyline of trust and captivity, the surrendering of the slave to another human allowing the slave to open herself to pain in return.
Some of us might regard Asher as Grace's White Knight and some of us might compare Lucas Stone to the Devil - I did. Asher was (at times) a tender Master to Grace but he had his own issues with forgiveness and guilt and is carrying a broken heart. Sometime I thought these issues would lead him to hurt Grace but they don't. Very slowly he rebuilds Grace's confidence, takes away her fear of what Lucas subjected her to and introduces Grace to trust and to a degree, freedom.
However, consider that this novel is not a tender romance. It weaves a twisted tale of punishment and betrayal to redemption and understanding - all against the kinky backdrop of a BDSM island.
There are aspects of this that some readers may find hard to accept e.g branding, dog licking, sun depravation but remember this is Kitty Thomas - she intrudes into your comfort zones and pulls you into an abrasive and compelling world of BDSM.
This is a fantastic book about love, courage, suspense, super hot sex scenes and finding that right person that matches all your desires perfectly.
This is the story of Grace, who decides to leave her normal life to live on an island as a slave, as she finds her local BDSM scene lacking. The book starts months later with Grace completely broken by an abusing person claiming to be a master. Grace is rescued by Asher, who has his own tormented past, and the two of them together build a beautiful BDSM relationship that helps both of them heal.
A brilliant book with characters that you can't help but connect with and a story full of twists along the way. A book you can't put down all the way to its beautiful HEA.
