Annaliese Harper knows that one tiny mistake can jeopardize a career before it’s even begun. Letting your boss find the extensive collection of porn on your personal laptop is one way. Sleeping with him is another. Liese manages to do both.

As the new librarian at a prestigious small-town private high school, Liese is drawn to her sexy, charismatic principal, Ryder Whitehall—an attraction she refuses to acknowledge given their relationship and her recent liberation from a delusional ex-boyfriend. 

Liese is certain Ryder’s flirtation is the product of her sex-deprived imagination—until he discovers her digital porn stash during working hours and demands a private meeting. Behind closed doors, their attraction explodes into a dangerous, passionate affair that not only threatens their jobs and reputations, but most of all, their hearts.


The headboard creaked as his weight settled against the straining wood. With his cock inches from her face she closed the gap and brushed her lips across the tip, the hot skin satin smooth. Ryder grunted a particularly obscene expletive.

“Would you like me to start sucking up, sir?”

Ryder stilled above her. The fire in his gaze wiped the grin right off her face. She took him in her hand, stroking his length. With parted lips she lifted her eyes to his and licked up the shaft.

His grunt of approval encouraged her, as did the view. Ryder's muscles were corded and stark as he gripped the headboard. He shifted his hips forward with every stroke of her mouth and hand.

“God,” he panted, “I can’t. . . ” He slid one hand into her hair and held her still, withdrawing from her mouth.

She fisted his erection tightly, and his throat bobbed as he swallowed. When she asked if he was okay, he held up a finger and gave her a curt nod. It seemed like forever before he moved or spoke, and when he did, his response was so low she didn't catch it.

Ryder drew her up and kissed her. “Have I told you how much I enjoy when you suck up?” He tugged her bottom lip with his teeth. “Or how incredible your mouth is?”

Liese’s laugh morphed into a moan as she felt his slick erection press against her hip.

His hand went to her ass, and he squeezed. “Will you turn around for me?”

“Is there another option?”

“Did you need there to be one?”

“No. You can have my any way you want me.”

Ryder paused, suddenly serious. He kissed her again, but the passion was tempered with something she couldn't quite place, and it unnerved her.

Breaking the kiss, Ryder turned her to face the headboard and guided her hands to rest on the smooth wood surface. His palms traveled up her arms, over her shoulders, and down her sides. “So beautiful,” he murmured. He traced the curve of her hips to her thighs and spread her legs, bending her forward slightly.

“Is this comfortable?” he asked, waiting for her affirmation before he continued. His left hand covered hers as his other arm came about her waist. His fingers splayed out over her hip and moved down, making light passes over sensitive skin.

“Mmmm, good. I want you like this.” He nuzzled the back of her neck, reaching across to the nightstand for a foil packet.

After a few moments he toyed with her, replacing his fingers with his cock, stroking back and forth before slowly pushing inside. Ryder kissed his way across her shoulder and up the side of her neck, pausing at the hollow beneath her ear. “I knew you’d feel like heaven.”

Liese released a shuddering breath when his hips eased back. His hand ghosted along her ribs, palming a breast as he pushed back in. Ryder he moved over her, slow at first, the headboard protesting with the forward momentum. Chest pressed against her back, Ryder’s fingers slid between her own, his grip tight on the smooth wood surface, gaining leverage as his pace quickened.

His lips brushed her cheek, and she turned into the unexpected affection. “I want to feel you come while I’m inside you,” he said in a seductive whisper.

It was all too much: Ryder moving inside her, his fingers threaded tight through hers, the feel of his lips on her shoulder and neck, and then his teeth against her neck. He groaned on the next hard thrust, urging her to come again. The sensations he evoked paired with charged words of desire sent her over the edge. Freefalling into the abyss, Liese gave herself over to the feeling of being completely consumed. Her orgasm hit her with such force it sent her spinning, just as she’d predicted.

Ryder waited until she’d caught her breath before he started moving again. His hand travelled over her stomach and between her breasts, fingertips tickling hypersensitive skin. His palm came to rest gently against the base of her throat, thumb finding its way between her lips. Liese bit down, sucking softly, an erotic reminder of what she could do with her mouth. His other arm came around her waist and pulled her tight against him. He pushed in deep, stilling as he lowered his head to her shoulder, a low groan of satisfaction muffled against her skin. Then he collapsed onto the pillows, taking her down with him.

“Will you stay the night?” Ryder asked on an exhale, moving her hair aside so he could kiss her temple. “Because I'd like to do this again in the morning.”

Another great story by Ms. Hunting, I enjoyed this one almost as much as her "Clipped Wings" series. I enjoyed the chemistry between Liese and Ryder, I found it comical how much Liese tried to hide her feelings about Ryder, especially after they began having a sexual relationship. It was great to see both sides of Ryder: the authoritative principal by day, the hot and sexy man in charge after school hours. My favorite scene in the book is, without a doubt, the debacle of Ryder meeting Liese's parents for the first time.
