I am excited to be participating in the promotional event for Teaching Willow: Session 1 by Paige James. I read this sexy and twisty novella and absolutely loved it.

Teaching Willow

My name is Willow Masters. I’m a senior in college, I’m smart and I keep to myself. I haven’t had an “incident” in over ten years. What all of these facts have in common is that none of them made any difference when it came to Ebon Daniels.

He started out as my sister’s date. I was instantly infatuated, but had no plans to do anything about it. I even managed to keep my feelings hidden when he took over my Modernist Literature class for the semester. The problems didn’t start until my sister took pages from my book—literal pages from a book I was writing—and gave them to the one person never intended to see them. That’s when the lies started. That’s also when I saw an opportunity to make my only dream become a reality.

How could a lie get me all that I ever wanted and, only a few months later, cost me everything that has ever mattered?

It doesn’t seem possible, but it is. It’s possible, it’s true and it’s tragic. In my book, there is a happy ending, but I don’t know if my life will have the same outcome.

My name is Willow Masters and this is the story of how falling in love with my teacher nearly destroyed both of our lives.

And it still might.

Character Profiles
matt bomer, 88
Ebon is the tall, dark professor who oozes sex appeal and drives all his students crazy with his charming smile, deep green eyes and insight into the romance of the written word.  He is the quintessential good guy who struggles with doing the right thing when he so desperately wants to do something else.  I think what fascinates me most about him, however, is the question of whether he would make the same choices IF his past weren’t as it is, which has yet to be revealed. I’ll simply say that if it makes an appearance in his present, it could have a dramatically negative bearing on his life.  It does, however, help him to resist Willow when he might not have been able to hold out for so long otherwise. 

His biggest vice is his weakness for peeling back the innocent to delve into the taboo.  His virtue is in how honest he is with himself.

I could see him being played by Matt Bomer, especially in the first picture where he’s on the phone.  Maybe talking to Willow?  He has that clean-cut look to him despite his perpetual 5 o’clock shadow and sometimes longish hair.  He looks intelligent and sexy as hell, all at the same time.  Who would mind any kind of lesson if he were the teacher?



Character Profile


Willow is a girl with ghosts.  She’s haunted and Ebon picks up on that. She fascinates him on many different levels.  She has long, dark hair and blue eyes.  She’s classically beautiful.  Very natural.  But there’s a sensuality to her that she can’t completely hide behind her studious appearance.  Her sister, Sage, wears it with pride.  Willow tucks it away, which gives her a mysterious, forbidden quality that eats away at Ebon.  Her biggest vice is Ebon.  Hands down.  Her biggest virtue is her love for him.  While it will cause them untold troubles, it is so pure she can’t resist it.

Something you don’t yet know about Willow is that she had some mental health issues that she fought and overcame.  But can she keep old demons at bay?  Or will they revisit her, threatening all that she holds dear?

I can see her in model Lauren Mellor, especially in this picture.  It’s the natural Willow with that latent sensuality shining through.

  1. I think I saw rolling walls here that evoked a sense of being in the captains seat of a spaceship. Additionally, it seems like there really isn't a bad seat in the house.
