Behind the mask of control hides a spirit aching to surrender.

Mistress Maya bears the nickname 'The Ice Queen'. Her precision in administering discipline, her skill in evoking a submissive's devotion, and her unshakable self-control are legendary in the small but active Boston kink community. From the moment newcomer Master Shark sees Maya flogging a sub at Club Inferno, he's obsessed with her beauty and power. He'd determined to break through her defenses and bring her the same release she grants to the lucky slaves she tops. When Maya dismisses Shark as young and inexperienced, he offers her a challenge-a night together, during which he'll show her what it means to be mastered. If he fails to bring her to new heights of sensation, he agrees to become her slave. What begins as a test of wills evolves into something deeper and more intense. As the younger man uses his insight and skill to coax Maya into submission, he comes to understand the wounded spirit hiding behind her mask of control. Can he make Maya trust him enough to surrender? Or will the flawless, untouchable dominatrix take possession of his body as well as his heart?

Mr Review:
Newcomer, Stephen or Master Shark as he's known in the kink world, is fascinated by the beautiful woman flogging her sub at Club Inferno. He's determined to get to know her better.

Mistress Maya had a bad experience when she was younger and has pledged that no man will command her again, ever!
Stephen meets Mistress Maya, or The Ice Queen that's her nickname at the club, and she sees a young and inexperienced and dismisses him. Stephen however is not that easily put off. He challenges Maya, a night together in which he'll show her what true submission is. If he fails, he agrees to be her slave.

What a great read from a new to me author, Lisabet Sarai. Mastering Maya is a short story filled with emotions, character depth. Stephen and Maya are good for each other, he's kind, gentle and understanding. I liked his energy and determination and Ms. Sarai was able to show his confidence without making him seem like a know-it-all. Stephen is a very likable character who I wouldn't mind meeting somewhere.

Maya has built a wall around herself, and doesn't take any pleasure for herself during a scene with a sub. She is always under control. I did like Maya, she just has a tough outer-shell to keep herself protected. Ms. Sarai creates a lot of sexual tension between the two in a short time that makes the pages sizzle. Even though this is a short story, it's very enjoyable and the characters are well written.
