    The Romance Reviews Top Pick

    Oh baby! This is what happens when extreme talent writes a beautifully, erotic romance. A story of a ballerina and her choreographer, Firebird read like a ballet in itself- sweet and graceful at times, but mysterious and tension filled at others.
    Jackson has come to NYC to choreograph an edgier version of the ballet Firebird. He begins ruffling feathers by casting Prosper Ware, a corps dancer, as the lead role. While the choreographer side of Jackson pushes and calls out the prima ballerina in her, the Dominant in him thrills at the opportunity to care, nurture and release her inner submissive. Prosper epitomizes the Firebird, and watching the Firebird come to life and take flight is one heck of a fine ride.
    I liked how Joseph used secondary characters to reinforce Prosper's view of herself as less than perfection. She sees herself as a disaster waiting to happen and therefore that is how everyone else in the Ballet, including the director, views her. It takes an outsider with a trained eye to see past the image she projects to the mastery of her movement and the capability of her talent.
    Aside from the inner struggle for each of them to overcome their past hang-ups so they can find their HEA in each other's arms, there is a side plot of jealousy. Jealous prima ballerinas angry over their dismissal and jealous potential lovers who wait in the wings hoping the two won't survive. It all wove together for me to create a complex and beautiful love story.
    This is one of my more erotic reads that I can recommend to any friend. The BDSM is on the light side and there are no ménages. So while the sex is steamy, it isn't too terribly tawdry or dark.
    Romance, steam, and just enough edge- they are the underdog couple to root for when you are looking for that book to put a smile (and blush) on your face. Enjoy!

    Wonderfully Erotic

    FIREBIRD is not for the faint of heart. Written for an erotic fantascy experience with emphasis on erotic. Some forced and harsh submission; definately not a healthy relationship between the two main characters.

    As always, Annabel Joseph writes another 5 star book. Well developed, believable characters combined with a unique story line, you won't want to put this book down.

    Ballet meets BDSM Romance

    I loved this! Joseph is a really fantastic writer and know how to layer bdsm erotica with emotional depth and vivd settings. Firebird is set in the ballet world and features likeable (shocking somewhat for Joseph), sweet (even more shocking:), emotionally intense characters.
