They call me a slut. Maybe I am.
Sometimes I do things I despise.
Sometimes men take without asking.
But I have a musical gift, only a year left of high school, and a plan.
With one obstacle.
Emeric Marceaux doesn’t just take.
He seizes my willpower and bangs it like a dark note.
When he commands me to play, I want to give him everything.
I kneel for his punishments, tremble for his touch, and risk it all for our stolen moments.
He’s my obsession, my master, my music.
And my teacher.
There is so much about this book that I want to say and so much I want to keep to myself. I want readers to experience the intensity of this forbidden love story, feel the explosive chemistry and indulge in the decadent debauchery between Emeric Merceaux and Ivory Westbrook. Pam Godwin has magnificently detailed the secrets, pain and darkness surrounding Emeric and Ivory. In an all-consuming attraction these two lost souls transfer their passion into strength, resilience and an unrivaled level of determination. Bringing to life a gut-wrenchingly, beautiful love story.
In a unique telling of a student teacher romance, Emeric and Ivory meet at the prestigious Le Moyne Academy of Music. Starting at a new job Emeric is running from his past, keeping his secrets close and his enemies closer.
Ivory just wants to survive. Struggling to eat and pay her way through school Ivory is often caught in dangerous and life changing situations – her options are limited and the outcomes are always damaging. One more year in high school and maybe, the grass will be greener on the other side.
For Emeric it is lust at first sight, this gorgeous and mysterious young woman sets alight a flame inside his body that refuses to be extinguished and Ivory. She is battling with feelings she has never felt before. Steering away from dominant and possessive men, her attraction to Emeric is unexplainable but most certainly undeniable.
In a raw and gritty depiction of love, Godwin focuses on the love that transcends between Emeric and Ivory and not their circumstances. Their connection is palpable and inescapable. Risking everything to feed their addiction to one another Pam Godwin writes of a connection so deep and so fierce, you can feel it in your bones. In an exemplary depiction of heat, desire and seduction Pam Godwin turns secrets into honesty, shame into respect and lust into love.
