Prosper is thrilled to be plucked from the corps de ballet to dance the lead role in The Firebird. But Jackson, the guest choreographer, is as sexy as he is demanding. Prosper soon finds herself flustered by his closeness and his unforgiving gaze. She gets caught up in kinky fantasies that make it difficult for her to concentrate on his steps. She imagines him as her Dominant, turning her over his knee for flubs in rehearsal. Just as sensual tension at work builds to an impossible level, a surprise encounter outside the studio results in Prosper’s fantasies being realized. Jackson takes his protégée home and ties her to his bed. Soon Prosper is receiving the discipline and domination she craves -- and much, much more.

The pair maintain a secret off-stage relationship -- scorchingly intimate encounters several evenings a week. But Prosper feels the burden of carrying the Firebird ballet on her back, and Jackson knows that his time in New York will draw to an end all too soon. Will Prosper crack under the pressure of pleasing her lover and bringing his vision to life, or will Jackson find a way to help his Firebird take flight?

Publisher's Note: This book contains explicit sexual content, graphic language, and situations that some readers may find objectionable: Anal play/intercourse, BDSM theme and elements.


Firebird is one of those books that surprise you- in a good way. Being a new reader in the BDSM category, I admit I was slightly hesitant. But as each page turned, I found myself more and more engaged by the story, and by Jackson and Prosper. Even as a Dom, Jackson is emotional, kind and caring, and reading about the pairs’ journey into love was amazing.

Jackson handpicked Prosper to dance the lead in “Firebird”, despite the protests of others. But he knew there was just something about her. His attraction to her was instant. Then, the two begin a no strings physical relationship, but both Jackson and Prosper soon find that they feel more than they were willing to admit in the beginning.

Emotional, erotic, and all around a great read. I read this quickly and enjoyed every bit of it. I will be looking for more writing from Annabel Joseph.
