This Story Is Sexy

Publisher's Summary

A fever dream of desires fulfilled. Nestled in the shadow of the Appalachians is where Gwen Ashby stumbles upon the William Marshall Academy, and she's given a trial position as a literature teacher. The gothic boarding school seems trapped in time, yet it feels like home the moment Gwen arrives. She's charmed by the lovely buildings, bewitched by the eager students...and utterly seduced by the headmaster.

Edwin Yorke is noble, handsome, and infuriatingly proper. But his tweedy exterior and courtly manners conceal a raw, sensual power that Gwen longs to unleash. It's strangely thrilling to be the only woman on campus - save one other. An eerie, white-clad figure roams the grounds by night. She never speaks. She leaves no trace. But this ghostly blight on Gwen's new dream life is the key to the Marshall Academy's mysterious allure. A RITA Award-nominated title from international best-selling author Tiffany Reisz.

Outstanding Unexpected Ending Thought Provoking

This is a well written book. I can tell you that it will keep your interest from beginning to end! The story line is one that I've not heard before. The narration is perfect.
Headmaster is a story showing the results of one person actions and what can result in that. It's a book about forgiveness, of choice, and of love.
There may be subject matter that not all will agree is acceptable, however it doesn't change the end results of this book of lessons learned about life.
I would recommend it. I wouldn't regret using a credit or money on this book.~~Mona~~

Boring and insulting to your intelligence

What did you like best about The Headmaster? What did you like least?

I couldn't even finish this. The narrator tried, but the writing was just so poor that it was futile. Save your credit and money.

Gothic contemporary romance with a twist

This was a well done contemporary romance with a unique twist to it. I enjoyed the characters, the school, and the chemistry between Gwen and Edwin. This is a fairly short read but it was engaging and entertaining. I liked the mystery and twist at the end.

I listened to this on audiobook and the audiobook was very well done.

Overall I enjoyed this and would recommend if you like romances with a gothic feel to them and a fun twist.

Haunting love

Mystery, intrigue, suspense is what you get in this haunting well written love story, with a shocking ending.
Wow Tiffany Reisz you never cease to amaze me with your writing prowess, and the narrator Tamara Marston did an excellent job holding you captive from beginning to end.

Not Reisz’s best work

The story is filled with stereotypical romance tropes. I’ve read a bunch of her books. I enjoy her work, she tends to bring a new take on a tired genre, but I would skip this one.

Wow, I am dumbstruck!

I should have seen this coming from Tiffany, and in a way I did anticipate the sort of supernatural part of the book to be there but I did not expect it to be at the very end. I truly loved this story, even though it was a tad benign for my tastes it kept me interested the whole way through and I really enjoyed it. The pacing was the only issue I had; it leaped and bounded through the storyline with no looking back until the end, and the Revelations that occur in the last 20 or so minutes of the book were mindbending. You know, it's funny, so many times I've read a book it listened to one and gotten to the point where everything is so predictable that I just turn it off without listening to the happy ending because I don't need to hear it to know it. It's a blessing I didn't do that with this book or I would have missed the most important piece of that puzzle. If you're looking for a cute love story with a bit of mystery in the air, this is for you. The male lead is protective and a tad alpha, but it's nothing so much as what I've read in dark romances on the daily. It's pretty tame in comparison to many contemporary romance novels and I believe the reason for that is one that only you can discover by listening to it because to give away the reason for the atmosphere of the story would be to give away the story itself. Tiffany's books always keep me interested and I love how they don't fit the mold so I can never guess exactly what's going on beneath the surface until it's revealed. That is the mark of a great writer and the reason I love her books so much. If you're on the fence, listen to this one, it's great!

Gwen is a Major Creep and the Headmaster is Chauvinist

I got to the chapter in which Gwen has her first dinner with the headmaster and couldn’t go on. Almost from the moment our main character sees the headmaster Edwin, she starts undressing him with her eyes and imagining having sex with him. Maybe she can’t help it. Fine. But to openly make passes at him especially when he tells her many times that it’s unwanted is grossly reprehensible behavior. I started hoping the headmaster would just tell her she wasn’t welcome there anymore because she kept sexually harassing him. But no. He *likes* that kind of treatment apparently.

And Gwen, with all her own behavioral issues, seems to like the headmaster. This also boggles me. From the very beginning he tells her what to wear and when she can and cannot speak. He points out the fact that because she is a woman she isn’t able to take care of herself twice before she even starts the job. And she likes that. I know this is a Harlequin Novel, but I do expect more out of my heroins and their love interests.

All that said, the students are actually really nicely written and the school itself is interesting, too. I wish I could’ve made it further into the book to find out more. Maybe I’ll go back and just skip all the parts not pertaining to the school’s history and the other mysteries there.

loved and hated it

loved the story and all of the characters. the narrator was great performing for male, female and young teenageed voices. the live scenes were just geaohic enough not to be too erotic. i did not like the end as much though nit because the heroine chose live but that she was dead/dying (though i guessed that mid way thru the book).
