Cardinal's Rule

Cardinal's Rule Review

Tilly Cardinal’s world imploded when her Master, Cris, disappeared with no explanation other than a short, cryptic note releasing her as his slave. Five years later, she’s Mistress Cardinal, a vicious, successful pro Domme charging big bucks to dish out whatever abuse men will pay to take. Materially, she wants for nothing. Privately, she’s never felt more alone.

In walks Landry LaCroux, a handsome, rich man with a proposition—he wants Tilly to train his slave. Landry holds the key to Tilly’s past, and her future. She’s shocked to discover Landry’s slave is her former Master, Cris.

Landry has a secret—he has cancer and wants to make Tilly a deal. Marry him and help him through his recovery, and he’ll pay her handsomely for it. Love wasn’t supposed to be part of the bargain, but can the three of them find healing and a lasting happiness under Cardinal’s Rule?

    This book was painful for me. Ms. Dalton put me through the wringer. I liked each of the characters. I'm not going to give spoiler alerts, but basically, due to lack of communication, time lost betwee...

    I started to read this because I loved The Reluctant Dom. Unfortunately this book was not anything like it. The author wanted me to hate one character, as all the other characters in this book seemed ...

    The only likeable person was Chris. It seems that when there is a break up in a BDSM relationship it takes a stronger mental and emotional toll on the sub then on a vanilla person. At least it seemed ...

    I never ever thought I could read another TD book that would affect me as heavily as Reluctant Dom did. OMG. This book was absolutely beautifully written. Every page held me captive. But it was one lo...

    This isn't an easy book to read. I spent as much time hating Chris as I did feeling sorry for him. And it's certainly not a book I'd recommend to someone who isn't used to reading about BDSM in romanc...

    Good read. I agree with the five star reviews about why this book is great (the complexity of the relationships, beautifully written etc.), but I ended up not feeling totally satisfied because I felt ...

    4.5 Stars ~ 'Cardinal's Rule' is Tymber Dalton's second book in her 'Suncoast Society' series. Having thoroughly enjoyed the previous book, especially the author's handling of BDSM and Master/slave el...

    This is more of a 3.5 than a true 4, but I swing closer to the 4 on this one because it was written by Dalton. My score isn’t because Dalton did a poor job writing, but I simply didn’t like the ch...
