Off limits, forbidden, twenty years my junior...

And in way over her head.

She needs saving. I need to keep away.

But one taste of those sweet, innocent lips, and I'll fight like hell to keep her safe.

I had no business looking at her like that. No business wanting her, craving her—the caveman in me roaring to claim and take.

Of course, that was before I realized who the girl in the mask grinding on my lap was.

Her name is Brynn Henley. She's eighteen—barely—and one of my students at the private high school where I'm the Principal. She's out-of-bounds, but then, she's also out of time and out of choices.

Some bad, bad people want her for themselves. They want to take her from me, and hurt her, all to settle a debt to the mob her father owes.

...They're going to have to come through me first.

I have no business with a girl like her. Too innocent, too untouched. But I've had a taste, and now, I'll have the rest.

This forbidden heat could engulf and burn us both. But the mob made a mistake. They came after what's mine.

...And nothing is going to take her away from me.

Each of the Winchester Academy books are completely standalone stories, with no cliffhangers.

As with all my books, this one is safe, with no cheating, and a HEA guaranteed.

About the Author

USA Today and #1 Amazon bestselling contemporary romance author Madison Faye is the dirty alter ego of the very wholesome, very normal suburban housewife behind the stories. While she might be a wife, mom, and PTA organizer on the outside, there’s nothing but hot, steamy, and raunchy fantasies brewing right beneath the surface!

Tired of keeping them hidden inside or only having them come out in the bedroom, they’re all here in the form of some wickedly hot stories. Single-minded alpha heroes, sinfully taboo relationships, and wildly over-the-top scenarios. If you love it extra dirty, extra hot, and extra naughty, this is the place for you!
(Just don’t tell the other PTA members you saw her here…)

Madison’s books have also been featured on,, and (probably) numerous government and concerned citizens watch-lists.

There has been a really really sexy and naughty Principal, and Brin wants him. Although Principal Kane and Brin never had any sexual thoughts towards each other until one night at a bachelor party, now that they can see each other in a different light, they can not keep their hands off. What are they to do? Brin needs help in any way she can get it. And Kane is willing to help. Barely is a beautiful story, and I couldn't put it down. A must-read!

★ Hot headmaster hero ★ —>>> All it took was one lap dance at a bachelor party, and Principal Kane was hooked on her. Until he realizes to his horror that the woman who has all his attention is a student at his school. Once he knows her story, though, he makes Brynn his number one priority…no matter what the cost. Luckily, he knows how to navigate mob-infested waters…

Great addition to this steamy series. Colton is the Principal of Winchester Academy and Brin is an 18-year-old student there. He ends up seeing her at a strip club she is working at and discovers why she is working there. Colton plans to protect Brin and get her out of the situation he is in but soon sparks are flying between this older man and younger woman. Intense and steamy chemistry with a fast-paced and drama filled read. I really liked it.

Colton at first didn't' know who the attractive masked stripper is, who he is getting a lap dance from, then he finds out it's Brynn a student who goes to the school he is a principal of (Winchester Academy). Can he fight the attraction he feels now? I loved the scorching hot scenes between this steamy pair, the danger, and the protective male who is stirred when his female needs him. I loved Brynn, who had better morals than her father, and wanted to protect her man.

“Wouldn’t want to get sent to the principal’s office, would you?” For the finale of the Winchester Academy series, Madison Faye pushes the boundaries of decency, with the seventh book of the series with "Barely." It's forbidden, it's taboo, it's scandalous, it's... SOOO GOOD! The headmaster of the Winchester Academy, Principal Colton Kane, is way out of his comfort zone, attending a bachelor party at a strip club. He sets his sights on a luscious, little, masked blonde, who upon the de-masking, (and the lap dance,) he discovers is one of his high school students, at the Academy. When he finds Brynn to be unwittingly in trouble with the mob, this former special forces soldier, lets instinct and nature take over for him. Holy moly, is he all kinds of take charge, kick ass, and don't mess with what's his, kind of guy. Yikes! You can expect all of kinds of drama, angst, mayhem, violence, ass-licking, suspense, humor, romance and hot, spicy, sex. NICE. A great way to wrap up a successful series, for Madison Faye. I received this book as an ARC from the author, and I volunteered this review.

What a wild ride!!! Colton is the principal at Winchester Academy and while at a strip club for a bachelor party his friend gets him at private dance. That dance is given to him by a very sexy girl and he is definitely turned on. When her mask falls off he is shocked to find Brynn, who's Barely legal and one of his students!!! This is a fantastic story with a "holy cow I didn't see that coming" twist at the end. It's a great addition to the Winchester Academy series and I highly recommend it!

This was another fun and steamy addition to this series. I liked Colton and Brynn. They had great chemistry and their scenes really sizzled. There was quite a bit of action and excitement in the storyline, along with heat and emotions. If you are a fan of forbidden romance or are just looking for a hot quick read, you cannot go wrong with this book or any other from this series.

Madison does it again. I don't know how but this series just keeps getting better and better. The dynamic between Colton and Brynn works for them. They keep the balance between steamy hot and protective caring perfectly.

This is a taboo story of a principal who finds out that the girl in the mask on his lap is his barely 18 year old student! He wants her but knows it wrong. But before long they can’t help themselves. But it seem others want her too and he isn’t going to give her up. What will happen? I voluntarily reviewed an Advanced Reader Copy of this book.

Nothing is more taboo than a Principle and his student relationship that sizzles from their first contact. Over the top hot Principle Kane’s character will give you the shivers as he fights his attraction for Brynn. I was highly entertained with their delicious loving that comes to a climax. Danger, suspense and the thrill of being caught makes this a must read in a series that only gets hotter as each book is introduced and ends with a bang.

I have loved every book in this series. "Broken" and "Banned" had been tied for my most favorite... until now! This one has that honor. I absolutely adored Colton! He epitomized the possessive, protective Alpha male. I liked the fact that even though her "world" fell apart, Brynn didn't. She realized that things would change and she was determined to figure them out. Luckily Colton was there to help. *I received an Advance Reader's Copy of this book which I am voluntarily reviewing*

I received this book with the book with the understanding that I could leave a voluntary and honest review. In this book we get Brynn Henley and Colton Kane's story. Colton would never be at the strip club if not for and old friend's bachelor party. One look at the girl on the stage has Colton sitting up a little higher and looking a little longer. That is until he realizes exactly who the girl is that got his attention. Brynn is one of his students at the academy and academy full of rich kids which has him wondering why is she here. When he goes to find out just that he realizes there is more to the story than he knows about. Brynn isn't one of the typical trust fund kids anymore. Once you hear the words like fraud and Ponzie scheme you know your world is about to change drastically. If only losing the money was her biggest issue. With her father only who knows where and her step-mother with her new man she is on her own when the mob guys her father ripped off come calling. She has no idea where to turn and is just fighting to stay above water. Can these two have a HEA they didn't even know was available to them or will everything be over before it has even begun due to outside forces? This is another hot book in this series. It does have its ups and downs I really want to tell you about. Trust me I really want to tell you but don't want to ruin the story for any other readers. I will say this book will have you hooked from the first word to the very end. I would highly recommend it to anyone and everyone.

The seventh and final book in the Winchester Academy series, Madison Faye turns up the heat in this well written, forbidden older man/younger woman romance packed with danger, explosive chemistry and burn up the pages sex scenes. I volunteered to review an advance reader copy of this book.

The author flips the script once again. I was expecting a hot story but this one was hot and beyond sweet. I loved the age gap and the interesting characters. I loved the idea of two people who are made for each other finding each other and fighting for each other. The dialogue in this story was amazing and worth the read, I could not love it more. This is the last (I believe) in this series but it was the best. I am such a sucker for a sweet insta love story. If you are new to this series you can start with this one, they are all standalone but you will want to jump into the rest afterwards! I received an ARC and am leaving an honest review.
