From the New York Times bestselling “master of erotic romance”* and author of Unraveled, Bound and Unwound comes the all-new novella in the Mastered series.
When Amery Hardwick first met martial arts master Ronin Black, she wasn’t ready for the primal urges his sensual rope artistry released in her. As it turned out Amery and Ronin were made for each other. But when they head to Japan for a delayed honeymoon and Ronin’s annual training with his sensei, Amery struggles to adapt to the foreign customs as well as running her burgeoning business from afar. But culture shock is the least of her worries when faced with the changes in Ronin—it feels as if she’s married a stranger. Caught between his sensei’s demands and pleasing his wife, Ronin is at war with himself over choosing advancement in his jujitsu training, or staying at home with the woman who owns his heart and soul. As the limits of their relationship are tested once again, Ronin and Amery discover that they both have a lot to learn about each other….and what it takes to build a love that’ll pass all life’s little tests.
Includes a preview of the new Mastered series novel, Unraveled.

Loved it!!! 5-Star series!!!
We're back in the amazing world of Master Black, Ronin, and his wife, Amery, traveling to Japan for his six weeks of training with his Sensei. They have a little break for a honeymoon and then Amery will meet Ronin's grandfather. Their journey to Japan and the various places they visit there is as adventurous as only Master Black can make it.
WOW! How I have longed to be back in the lives of Ronin and Amery. This is a fantastic short story with that same explosive impact as a full length novel. They both still have a little bit of their insecurities from previous books. They are still eternally devoted to each other and the attraction is hotter than ever. The story of Ronin's training with his Sensei brought tears to my eyes. It's a definite turning point in this series. Thank you Lorelei James for giving us this fabulous novella while we await the next full length novel.
Sadly, I was disappointed by this installment. I loved the first two books, and instantly came to love and admire Amery and Ronin.. Especially Ronin. *Swoon!
Honestly, I feel this could've been in an epilogue though. It ended so abruptly- it was just a little tease into their happily-ever-after; I was hoping it'd end w/a ninja baby, or some big plot or something. Also wish it was longer. *Sigh
