For the past ten years, Katriona has been the owner and operator of Incognito, a club where people may go to fulfill their innermost fetish fantasies.  Catering to a select clientele, Mistress Kat, as she is known, spends her nights making sure her clients are taken care of as well as furthering her status as a demanding mistress.  With her slave, Carl, by her side, everyone assumes Kat is what she appears to be, a dominatrix with an adoring slave.  However, Katís behind the scenes life comes crashing to a halt with the arrival of the one man that has the ability to tear her entire world down around her, Master Dalton Carrington.

Ever since he and Katriona shared a fiery kiss months ago on stage in front of an entire auditorium filled with convention goers, Dalton has been looking for the dominatrix that he feels is a fraud.  Knowing deep in his dominant heart that the woman he kissed is actually a sub in dommeís clothing, Dalton sets out to prove to her that he is the man to help her make the switch. 

With the arrival of Master Dalton, Katís life is turned upside down and inside out.  Yearning to be the woman Dalton says she is, Kat suddenly has decisions to make. Decisions that donít affect just her.  Will she give in to her innermost yearnings or keep Dalton at armís length just like every other male she has ever come in contact with?

I now have a new favorite Incognito book.  Collaring Kat was breathtaking to me.  Since she was so tough and demanding in the previous Incognito books, I was actually afraid to read her story because, while I adore this series, I was apprehensive as to whether or not I would like Kat as a heroine. I am happy to say that I found Katís character vulnerable and often times innocent - like her feelings for Dalton.  She became more feminine as the story unfolded and I found her transformation like that of a flower blooming. It was beautiful.  Dalton Carrington is a truly magnificent male in this story. Demanding without being cruel, I relished his ability to see past Katís defenses and seek out the inner woman.  He was perfect for her.

Collaring Kat was truly the book I was afraid to hope it would be. It was fiery with its eroticism, the story line was poignant, and I was treated to a look at the previous characters in this series that I fell in love with. Truly, it is a great book and only further whets my appetite for more tales of this intriguing and completely addicting series.  I raise my flogger high in the air and joyfully recommend Collaring Kat.  It was awesome.
