SYNOPSIS

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. 

EXCERPT

“I'm sorry, sir.” Liese uncrossed her legs, smoothing her skirt over her thighs. He followed the movement with his eyes. She prayed he wasn't propositioning her as a means to sink the final nail into the coffin of her career, but that the months of pretending the attraction between them didn’t exist had finally come to an end. “I'm not sure I understand.” God, she hoped they were done pretending.

“You're an intelligent woman, Liese. I'm sure you can figure it out.”

She remained silent, trying to ascertain her position. Tucking her chin in, she looked up at him demurely. “So, to paraphrase,” she began in a conspiratorial whisper, “you'd like to have dinner with me so I can tell you about my masturbation habits? Would that be accurate, sir?”

Ryder's eyes widened, evidently not expecting her to be quite so forthright. “When you put it that way—”

“It sounds inappropriate?”

“Everything that's happened between us today has been inappropriate.”

“But—”

Ryder raised his hand to cut her off. “Don't misunderstand me. While I am very aware this is a dangerous path to take, I seem to have lost my ability to give a fuck. And after finding this—” He rose from the chair, gesturing to the laptop. “—I admit I would like to procure several of the other items available on this site. But I have to assume some may already be in your possession, rendering such purchases unnecessary. Again, we could discuss the items you do have as well, if you’d like.”

Liese blinked dumbly at him.

“Sorry, I ramble when I get excited. Of course, you already know that.” He leaned forward, his hands flat on the desk, the tick below his left eye belying his nervousness.

“I really don't know what to say,” Liese replied. Her initial response was to jump at the opportunity, considering she’d been thinking about doing that very thing for ages. But the potential repercussions gave her pause. “Do you often proposition women this way?”

“Do you often doctor pornographic images of your superiors?” he shot back.

Liese rose from her chair, her eyes narrowed as she processed his body language. “Are you trying to blackmail me into fucking you?” 

“Do you want to fuck me?” 

The question sent a wave of heat through her body. “Do you want to fuck me?” she retorted, because she’d be damned if she was going to admit it first. The time she’d spent dissecting his every glance and touch had driven her insane. The connection between them wasn't in her head, and he should be the one to confirm it.

“Yes, very much, actually.”
