These are romances where one of the protagonists works for the other protagonist. This can be a temporary situation or a regular occurrence. What I find so interesting in these stories is how authors handle the power dynamics that are already in play within the relationship and how those translate once personal feelings get into the mix. I also found myself wanting more books where the heroine is the boss of the hero. I tried to find more examples, but had some trouble.
