Title: The Keyholder
Author: NYT & USAT Bestselling Author Claire Thompson
Genre: Dark BDSM Romance
Tour Host: DRC Promotions
Taken by an evil Master Keyholder – rescued by the Dom of her dreams…
Eva Sandler’s dream job as a house submissive at Hawthorne Dungeon becomes a seven-week nightmare of intense captivity at the hands of a dangerous Master Keyholder. Though forced to submit to the cruel taskmaster’s every erotic whim, Eva’s inner spark of survival burns hot. She will escape, whatever the cost.
Long-time Dom Jack McQuade aches for a loving D/s connection like that shared by his friends, Nora and Charles. When Nora finds desperate clues left by someone held prisoner in Hawthorne Dungeon, it leads them all to a harrowing discovery and introduces Jack to Eva’s stunning courage and determination.
Jack and Eva’s possible D/s relationship should be perfect, but when Jack holds back because of Eva’s previous experience—fearing he’s pushing her too far, too fast—it will take every bit of Eva’s spirit to show the Dom that his sub is much stronger than he ever realized.
A powerful story of passion, betrayal, erotic submission, but most of all—love.
Review by Tanya Rae: 5 Stars
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I love Dark reads and I would say the The Keyholder was definitely dark at least in the beginning of the book. There is some extreme BDSM in this book so watch out if you don’t like that. If you are squeamish to extreme BDSM then don’t get this book.
This is Eva Sandler & Jack McQuade’s story. What Eva went through was horrible and I can say this because it was in the synopsis that Eva was rescued by Jack another Dom but a good one, after Nora found clues. Thank goodness Jack found her. The story goes on from there isn’t dark any longer and it is a love story with an HEA.
Claire Thompson wrote this after her Synopsis: A powerful story of passion, betrayal, erotic submission, but most of all—love.
I loved The Keyholder particularly the ending of this book. I received a copy of this book for an honest review and I give it 4.5 stars. And, I look forward to reading more from Claire Thompson.

About The Author
Claire Thompson is a New York Times and USA Today bestselling author who has been writing for nearly two decades, and has published over 60 novels. She writes BDSM romance and non-con abduction tales, spanning both m/f and m/m genres.
Her love affair is with all things D/s (Dominance/submission). Her work began as a romantic exploration of the BDSM life style, and then veered somewhat to the darker side of fantasy. She loves delving into the dark psyche of a twisted mind, and gaining insight into what might motivate such a person to do what they do. She does not create all black and white villains and heroes, but rather strives to develop real, complex and flawed human beings.
Claire doesn’t want to simply provide an erotic thrill or evocative description. She seeks not only to tell a story, but to come to grips with, and ultimately exalt in the true beauty and spirituality of a loving exchange of power. Her darker works press the envelope of what is erotic and what can be a sometimes dangerous slide into the world of sadomasochism. Ultimately her work deals with the human condition, and our constant search for love and intensity of experience.
