Julianne can’t believe she won the apprenticeship with Nicolai.  Her life has been so restricted by her father that she has a difficult time when she realizes that Nicolai could mean so much more to her than just being her teacher.  What happens when she realizes she can have everything she wants after Nicolai finally acknowledges he wants her as his is wondrous.

Masterpiece is the first book in the Masters of the Order series.  For readers that love a good BDSM story, this is one for the shelves.  It was wonderful to watch Julianne blossom as she discovered her own sexuality, as well as being what is known as a natural submissive.  Nicolai struggled to balance his own dark desires as he discovered what Julianne can handle. 

The Order is a group of men and women that are in the extreme upper echelon of society in France.  There is a code of honor that they follow including helping each other when one falls in love and finds ‘their one’.  Things are a little more complicated with Julianne since before she was born, her mother had been the love of the Order’s leader’s life.  As friends help Nicolai protect Julianne, Xavier is plotting.

This story has so many twists and turns that kept my interest.  I did not want to put this book down.  Readers should be aware that this book is intense.  The relationship that Nicolai and Julianne have is explosive especially when cousins, best friends and mentors sometimes are invited to participate.  I liked that this story stressed communication and expressing yourself when limits are reached.  Even though safe words were discussed, they weren’t used.  The story also stressed that the difference between abuse and consensual activities. 

Readers should be aware that this book was previously released by another publisher, but it has been revised and re-edited according to Loose Id. I have to say that after reading this book, that Jillian Verne has been added to my must read authors of BDSM based on this story.  I am looking forward to reading more in the Masters of the OrderMasterpiece is a book that should be on every BDSM lover’s bookshelf.
