Book One in the Mastered series.
Julia Lyle will have nothing to do with domineering men, no matter how tall, dark, and sexy. But Dom Marcus Cavendish will be satisfied with nothing less than collaring the fiercely independent Julia.
Nothing could have shocked her more…
Julia Lyle is invited to her best friend’s wedding and is stunned when Lana kneels to accept her husband’s collar. When Julia starts to object, firm, relentless hands land on her shoulders. The man behind her threatens to turn her over his knee if she interrupts. She’s outraged, but there’s no doubt he’s serious.
After the ceremony, he offers her a glimpse into her friend’s lifestyle, if she’s brave enough to accept.
Master Marcus Cavendish is everything she doesn’t want in a man—dominant, self-assured and arrogant. So why can’t she resist him?
Telling herself that learning about the lifestyle will make her a better friend, Julia agrees to submit to Master Marcus, but only for the evening. Firm and unrelenting in his handling of her, he introduces her to his tawse and the pleasure/pain of a spanking delivered by a competent Dom. The experience unnerves her, making her question everything she thought she knew about relationships, and his forced orgasms leave her shattered.
No doubt the scene seduced her, and that makes her doubly determined to avoid him. She has fought hard for her freedom and vowed only to date nice men, and Master Marcus is anything but safe.
Marcus is undeterred. Julia is a natural sub. The way she responded to his touch, his voice, his punishment proved it. Now he has to convince her to yield to him, submitting to his tawse as she kneels to accept his collar.

Customer ReviewsReview From Coffee Time RomanceReviewed by DelaneWith This Collar is a study of the exact meaning of being a submissive. I enjoyed the light foray into the BDSM world. Each character had something to teach or learn from the others, and the lessons were of the most interesting style. The first Mastered book offers the reader a lighter introduction into the BDSM lifestyle. For those who always wanted to understand but were scared to explore, With This Collar is the book for them.Read the full review atMay 2013Review From Erotica For AllReviewed by Lucya great read. Fascinating from the very first through to the last page, we follow Julia’s kinky adventure with Master Marcus, from the spankings, to the kneeling, to the satisfying ending (which I won’t spoil). This is a well-written, extremely hot insight into the world of BDSM, with characters that are both believable and likeable. I definitely recommend this to fans of BDSM erotic romance.Read the full review atMay 2013Review From Long and Short ReviewsReviewed by BittersweetWell written and insanely hot...One of the things I liked best about this book was the way Cartwright had of explaining the BDSM lifestyle...I’m definitely looking forward to the next installment in this Mastered series and will be rereading With This Collar while I wait, for it is a great scorching love story well worth reading at any time.Read the full review atApril 2013Review From Night Owl ReviewsReviewed by ElfThis very spicy read gives a beautiful exposition of one woman’s journey into an erotic world that she knew very little of...There are very hot scenes that demonstrate some of the techniques that can be applied but this is also a delicious love story and I look forward to reading more titles from this gifted author.Read the full review atApril 2013Review From The Romance ReviewsReviewed by Rain HartMs. Cartwright managed to deliver yet another amazing BDSM story.
