When trying to save a woman from slavers, Sam screwed up. Royally. Now Linda wants nothing to do with him. Or with BDSM. She won’t even admit she’s a masochist. As a dominant and sadist, he can give her what she needs, and when an opportunity arises, he slips into her life, intending to make amends. She’s everything he knew she would be…except for her bullheaded determination to be ‘normal’.
Now the horrible time is past, Linda just wants to return to her small conservative town, pick up her quiet life, and be normal. But how can someone who likes pain be ‘normal’? To her dismay, when someone spray-paints her home with obscenities, Sam shows up to rescue her. Again. Doesn’t he understand that the last thing she needs in her life is a sadist? He’s amused by her objections. But his dry sense of humor can’t disguise that he’s tough as nails and dominant and stubborn. He’s not going to let her drive him off this time. Soon she realizes she wants him to stay.
When he takes her to the Shadowlands, she feels as if she’s found a home…until she hears a voice from out of her nightmares.

What distinguishes If Only...
My least favorite of the Shadowlands books. It is too long and entirely too much discussions of Sally's issues. Almost didn't finish it. There are some really hot scenes between Galen, Vance and Sally. I think this could've been a great book, if you cut out a third to a half of the clutter.
At 543 pages, reading the eighth installment in Cherise Sinclair’s Masters of the Shadowlands series was like running the longest, sexiest marathon of my life. And, when I crossed the finish line, it made me want to skip around my house singing, “Threesomes and bondage and FISTING, oh, my! Threesom...
This is Sally's story. Two Doms and one very smart chic. Another winner by Cherise Sinclair.
I feel like I've been waiting for this story for years - oh, wait, I have been. *g* Sally has been a central fixture in the trainee program at the Shadowlands since the beginning, and I've always loved her. She's sassy and smart, loyal and determined, and so much fun. I'd love to be friends with her...
