HOLD ME DOWN
Talia Benson has always been independent, unafraid to go after what she wants, regardless of setback, injury, or failure. But between her father’s conditional tuition payments and her mother’s nagging concern over her emotional state, Talia’s suffocating.
So when Talia meets doctoral student Sean Poole, she can’t figure out why she wants him to control her. Why she wants him to boss her around. Why she wants him to hurt her. Talia must learn the hard way that not all control is created equal, and sometimes submitting is the most empowering thing in the world.
THE CONCERT MASTER
The last time conductor Nathan Kuhn got involved with one of his musicians, the orchestra lost a brilliant harpist and Nathan almost lost his job. He promised himself—and his boss—that it would never happen again. Fortunately, this year’s new concert master, a nineteen-year-old violin prodigy named Caitlin Bradley, shouldn’t be a threat. She’s beautiful and talented and passionate, but he knows there’s no way someone like her would share his tastes: dominance, submission, pain.
Until Caitlin confesses that it’s exactly what she wants. One intense encounter leads to a powerful, consuming affair, even though discovery could cost them both their positions. When their secret is threatened by an old rival, Nathan must make the hardest decision of his life—whether to sacrifice his career or his heart.
