This is the first book I've read by Ms Mandara and I can't wait to read how Mark and Jen's journey began. Once I started reading this book I couldn't put it down. It's the most intense story I've read in a while and I had to read it in one sitting. My cup of tea got cold, I didn't replace it. A text message arrived, I didn't check it. All I could think of was reading the next line. My heart went out to Jen from the first page. All the other characters are interesting, distinct and add depth to the story. Mark is intriguing, hot, inventive, cruel and sometimes funny. Mostly I read with my heart in my mouth, pulse thundering and occasionally I found my hand in front of my face when my jar dropped. I kept thinking he won't do that will he !?!? And he does. Luckily there is strong chemistry between him and Jen and sometimes she enjoys it ... It's a hot, dark, enthralling story and I loved every minute of reading it. Oh it ends on a dramatic cliff hanger, don't let that put you off, you have to read it. It's going straight into my list of favourite ever books and I know I'm going to reread it!

Mark Matthews is being blackmailed into marrying the daughter of his enemy, and he's not taking it lying down. He has dastardly plans for his new bride, Jennifer Redcliff. He'll play his Dominance to the hilt, all the better to send her screaming to her divorce lawyer.

But Jennifer can't divorce him. She has nowhere else to turn. So she'll be his voluntary, albeit feisty, submissive.

The Velvet Chair is considered dark BDSM romance, and it's definitely that, with the steamiest of sex scenes. And let me tell you, the ending? I've got to get my hands on the next installment! 5 BIG stars!!

I had the great pleasure of being a Beta reader of The Velvet Chair.

It is absolutely riveting. A roller coaster ride of emotions, expectations and hopes. The tension
between Jennifer and Mark was palpable! Knowing their history I once again found myself
loving Jens fire and tenacity no matter how Mark tried to punish her for his treatment at the
hands of Michael her step father and as he believes, Jennifer herself.

Each of the books in this series have been brilliant!

This wicked tale keeps getting better and better! It's wonderful to be united back with Mark and Jennifer, and the temperature is starting to rocket. Mark isn't going to take being blackmailed lying down, and that's when the fun and games begin. I love the suspense that this story brings, and the sex is off the scale. If you like it extra hot with double helpings of bdsm and kink - you've come to the right place! Whew!

By CC - Published on Amazon.com

Mark Matthews is a successful entrepreneur and a Dominant. While some things come naturally to Mark, he didn’t foresee being blackmailed into marriage. The stakes are high as Mark plots his revenge against the mastermind who orchestrated this grand scheme and also against his treacherous bride. With confidence and the resources to exact his plan, Mark is prepared to unleash his wrath.

Jennifer Redcliff has always lived a privileged life but she also endured the manipulation and cruelty of her father. After surviving her stint at Albrecht Stables, she is now bound to the man that has always gotten under her skin but he despises everything she represents.

As soon as their vows are exchanged, Mark implements his incremental plan of torture and Jennifer must learn how to live as his submissive or else sign the divorce papers. Being quite the masochist, Jenny can tolerate more than most, but she knows Mark is planning to mete out more than physical pain. Unknown elements also remain that may affect Jenny’s choices and could ultimately cause consequences they cannot fully predict.

For those familiar with this author’s pony play series, you’ll thankfully know that not much is off limits. With this book focusing on Mark and Jennifer, the kinky times are in abundance and I thoroughly enjoyed the dynamic exchanged between these characters and the deviant creativity. Normally in control of any given situation, Mark slowly shows hints of a softer side but he can still wield a crop with precision accuracy. There’s no doubt that Mark absolutely ticks all my boxes. As for Jennifer, I appreciated her tenacity to embrace any given situation and the ability to endure the physical and mental demands placed upon her.

Augmenting the sexual chemistry, is an air of mystery surrounding the ultimate goal behind the blackmail of these characters. Knowing how the Mark and Jenny are being manipulated adds to the plot and character tension. This is a story that is intriguing and makes the reader continually wonder what will happen next to these characters. I thoroughly enjoyed reading about Mark and Jennifer’s kinkcapades and look forward to continuing this series.

For those who want some mystery with their kink, I highly recommend The Velvet Chair.

4.0 out of 5 stars BDSM VERSION OF PERILS OF PAULINE 16 Mar. 2017
By Femme - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
** spoiler alert ** Poor Jennifer.

She's got a mean, vintictive father who got her addicted to drugs
Made her marry a man under dishonest circumstances, blackmailing her into it.
As a result, he has put her through gladiator style ordeals to get her to sign divorce papers. She can't sign them because her father has threatened her with dire consequences if she does.
Her husband is fighting his urge to keep her. He has second thoughts because she was made for him. They fit each other. BDSM version of the Perils of Pauline.

Honestly I'm surprised she's got more than 9 lives. Yes it's a stretch to think a character can tolerate even one of the scenes. This is a totally fan-tassy book, very entertaining and the author is extremely creative, colorful, and I can't fault it for anything. I'm looking forward to the next volume.

5.0 out of 5 stars Everyone Has a 5 Star Pony in This Wicked Race 6 Mar. 2017
By M.Chrissy - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
The arrogance of powerful men is now, and always has been, the main source of their weakness—their Achilles Heel, if you will. In this case, it appears to be one powerful man, Michael Redcliff, bringing Mark Matthews to heel, but not the Achilles kind. But, then…perhaps not. Men, in the process of comparing whose is always bigger, neglect the obvious—the power of a woman.

We are all voracious in our appetites to broaden our experiences, be it wealth, travel, or sex—diverse appetites all. We stretch and soar to reach the heights of our exploration while we just as eagerly grovel to the depths of our decadence. It gives us an appreciation for what we may have to lose…or gain. To know one, it follows, an understanding of the other is introduced.

So who wins or loses in this triad? Or is it a draw? It depends on your definition of strongest or cleverest or most determined? The Marquis de Sade, an eloquent, literary apologist for sexual cruelty, said it best, “In order to know virtue, we must first acquaint ourselves with vice.”

Permit me to introduce you to the Velvet Chair… and draw your own conclusions. Another outstanding piece of work, Ms Mandara. Wickedly 5 perfectly pink and swollen stars.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dark but sweet winner! 3 April 2017
By Mina Gerhart - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I wasn't sure if such a dark book would catch my attention but Jennifer and Mark grabbed my heart as they are forced to marry by Jennifer's father, a character I'd like to 1. learn more about & 2. wring his spoiled neck. Mark is blackmailed into marrying Jennifer due to his past misdeeds & Jennifer has been trained to obey from childhood. Jennifer learning to trust Mark & the BDSM party at the end of the book are uplifting, but the book leaves you on a BIG cliffhanger. I can't wait for the next book to come out to see what happens.

5.0 out of 5 stars NOOOOO 2 Mar. 2017
By Becky 19 & 21 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This is an unbelievable story. 1st I would highly recommend reading the whole Pony Tails series. No words and I even told the author that. I am very familiar with C P Mandara's work. This is a beautifully written story and it it's definitely a page turner. CP has you on the edge of your seat. You're going to crave more of it. You are going to LOVE and HATE Mark (well I love Mark and I'm not sharing) ;) I don't want to tell you too much but take a chance on this story it's fantastic
