When Bess Leighton lands the part of the Sugarplum Fairy in an original choreography by the renowned Soren Falk, she's overjoyed at what it could mean for her career. The stern, demanding Soren has had a legendary career, and dancing for him is the greatest honor in the ballet company. Soren demands that Bess spend three weeks in November training with him at his chalet in Vermont before rehearsals begin, and she readily agrees.

But on her first night in Vermont, Bess learns that Soren has a stern hand with his dancers, and is all too happy to put her over his knee for a hard, bare-bottomed spanking. When he discovers her deep erotic pleasure in being mastered, the aristocratic Soren decides to train her into the perfect, proper lady with strictly-enforced rules and etiquette and plenty of old-fashioned discipline. But neither expects the deep emotional connection that blossoms between them as the snow flies outside.

When they return to Seattle to begin rehearsals, Soren wants to keep their relationship a secret, and Bess can't shake the powerful need she has to be his in all ways. She performs her role in the ballet brilliantly, but all the time she's becoming more and more lost and unhappy in her desire for Soren. Can Soren accept the gift she's offering, or will their new love be as fleeting as the sparkle and shine of a Christmas ballet?

This was a very good read and the ballet aspect was so interesting. I'm not sure I liked Soren, I found him selfish in the worst way, but he did eventually redeem himself. Bess, was sweet and when she committed to something she gave 100 percent whether it was work or love. She finally gets everything she wanted by the end.

I have to admit I approached this one with trepidation, and had to overcome a personal (and admittedly irrational) prejudice against ballet and anything ballet-adjacent in order to enjoy Becoming the Sugarplum Fairy. If it wasn't a Bryony Kildare story, I probably wouldn't have bought it—but I'm so glad I did, because it's a perfect Christmas treat. One of the things I appreciate about Bryony Kildare's romances is that the heroes get actual character development; even though they're unambiguously the take-charge "alpha males" endemic to this genre, they are still written as human beings with flaws and the capacity for growth. We definitely get that with Soren, which is nice. He freaked me out at first; especially in the first part of the story Soren is SO cold and struck me as SO MEAN...but by the end I was all, "aww, Soren." And it wasn't a jarring leap from "hero-is-a-jerk-oops-the-story's-almost-over-better-make-him-seem-likable." It was a subtle evolution, and reflected the growing trust and devotion between Bess and Soren. "Becoming the Sugarplum Fairy" is exactly the right amount of sweet with just enough darkness to keep it from being cloying.
