Book Description


Derek Brighton has become one of Dallas’s finest detectives through a combination of discipline and obsession. Once he has a target in his sights, nothing can stop him. When he isn’t solving homicides, he applies the same intensity to his playtime at Sanctum, a secretive BDSM club. Unfortunately, no amount of beautiful submissives can fill the hole that one woman left in his heart.


Karina Mills has a reputation for being reckless, and her clients appreciate her results. As a private investigator, she pursues her cases with nothing holding her back. In her personal life, Karina yearns for something different. Playing at Sanctum has been a safe way to find peace, but the one Dom who could truly master her heart is out of reach.


On the hunt for a killer, Derek enters a shadowy underworld only to find the woman he aches for is working the same case. Karina is searching for a missing girl and won’t stop until she finds her. To get close to their prime suspect, they need to pose as a couple. But as their operation goes under the covers, unlikely partners become passionate lovers while the killer prepares to strike.

I was really looking forward to Derek's and Karina's story. We've been teased by them so I really wanted to know how they were going to work out their issues with each other....

I love this series and I know the authors writing style. She does alot of inner dialogue and it usually doesn't bother me so much but it sure did in this novella. There was so much of it, I don't think the h/h had much real discussion. It was all internal and it was making me crazy! If they would just talk to each other and be honest about their feelings and their past, so much would of been resolved right away. Maybe that would of made the book really really short but it would of been a better book instead of a frustrating one!

They went from not liking each other to love before they talked out their issues with each other. I just was not feeling this one at all and I hate that because I love this series. I love love love Ian. He has to be one of my all time favorite book characters.

I look forward to Simon's and Chelsea's story. I really hope LB lets them talk to each other instead of assuming the worst, lying, withholding information and waiting to the last 10 pages of the book to give them their HEA.

First and foremost I would like to say THANK YOU LEXI BLAKE for bringing a character like Derek Brighton into my life. I knew I was going to immediately fall in love with that man. There is nothing sexier than a man who can turn you into a puddle with such a simple act as brushing a piece of rope up and down your skin while whispering how he plans to take care of you. I am getting goosebumps again just thinking about it. I’m no stranger to the Masters and Mercenaries Series by the amazing Lexi Blake. This series, as well as the rest of Lexi Blake’s work, continues to leave me breathless. There is just something about these characters that make you want to jump in the page and devour them. I don’t think I will ever get enough of these honest, sexy, demanding men. Vivid, emotional, and suspenseful, this Masters and Mercenaries novella packs just as much punch as a full length novel.

The word relationship has been vacant from Derek Brighton’s vocabulary ever since his wife screwed him over. The woman he thought he fell in love with, was nothing but a snake. A snake who ruined him for any true love in his future. Derek is no stranger to Sanctum. He has played with his fair share of submissives, but no one has him in more knots than Karina Mills. She intrigues and infuriates him, but more importantly, she makes him feel again. She brings out the Uber Dom in him, and no matter how much she pushes back, he will see to it, that she is in his bed.

Karina Mills is one hell of a PI. The way she goes about getting results are not always pretty, but you can’t fault her, because she gets s*** done. She goes to Sanctum to get what she needs, but she is still searching for something more.

In this novella set in Ms. Blake’s Masters and Mercenaries ‘verse, Derek Brighton and Karina Mills are thrown together when a serial killer targets submissives from the local BDSM scene in Dallas. Derek and Karina have been dancing around their attraction to each other for quite a while in Ms. Blake’s books. Derek is brought in on the serial killer case because of his BDSM background, and finds out that Karina has been targeted as the killer’s next victim. Derek volunteers to become her Dom and together, they work to draw out the killer, while working out their own issues with each other.

The Good
Derek and Karina have intrigued me for a long time, and I was eager to see when they would get their chance to be front and center. I wasn’t disappointed. Their scenes are fraught with tension but their connection was apparent from the start.
The dialogue flowed well, with good humor and showcased the relationships that have been established between all the characters.
The smexy times - yeah, Ms. Blake has never had a problem with that, and she certainly comes through with Derek and Karina. There’s a good balance between the sex and the emotional scenes, and it doesn’t overwhelm.

The Just Ok
The “mystery” of who the killer is, really isn’t. But if I want a mystery, I’ll go read Agatha Christie.

I don’t think it functions well as a standalone. I could easily see it becoming confusing for someone unfamiliar with the ‘verse and all its players to follow the action since there are appearances from many former heroes/heroines.

This also affects the believability of the HEA - I’ve read this series from the beginning and I know there’s a history between Derek and Karina but if I wasn’t, the condensed timeline works against this.

After reading Dungeon Games by Lexi Blake, I think I’m going to need to invest in a thesaurus in order to find new superlatives to describe how fantastic each addition to her Masters and Mercenaries series is. Even when the book is a novella, Ms. Blake still amazes me with her ability to weave a spellbinding tale.

This time around Ms. Blake has drawn on her skills to pen another installment in the 1001 Dark Nights series. We have previously met Derek Brighton and Karina Mills. Their constant clashes barely mask the sexual chemistry. Derek is a cop and Karina is a private investigator and they are forced to work together to catch a serial killer who is targeting submissives. The two pose as a D/s couple but their cover becomes a reality as their connection grows. Both are dealing with past issues and secrets. Yet they are stronger together if they would just realize it.

Once I started reading Dungeon Games, I could not put the book down. Ms. Blake was able to work within the confines of a novella to still create a fully fleshed out story with well developed characters, an intriguing storyline and enough emotion to make me teary-eyed. Karina is a complicated character who was easy to like. She’s tough as nails on the outside but inside she has a big heart and so much love to give. I love that each of the submissives in the Masters and Mercenaries series are strong, smart, independent women who constantly earn my respect.

I also loved Derek. As with all the men in this series he is alpha and super protective of the woman he cares about. But Derek isn’t perfect and he has his own issues to work through. He suffers from PTSD and a betrayal from his past has soured him on relationships.
