Welcome to the Club Whisper Song Matching Show! We are here today with Dean, Collin, Peyton, Seth, Emilio, and Curtis who have selected the perfect songs for Jonathan and Leeland as individuals and as a couple, complete with explanation. Here are the choices!
Jonathan: The Sound of Silence, Disturbed
Leeland: The Song of the Dragonborn, Skyrim
Leeland and Jonathan: When the Rain begins to fall, Jermaine Jackson and Pia Zadora
Curtis: I’m usually not a great fan of cover versions, especially not when it’s a classic like The Sound of Silence, but I have to admit Disturbed did a great job. The song also fits Jonathan perfectly, since he, too, is always calm and collected in the beginning, but can become very fierce when those he loves – especially Leeland – need him. He always tries to come across as this grumpy, strict Dom, though nobody believes his act anymore.
Emilio: I agree with Curtis. Jonathan is one of those Doms every sub wants to play with because he’s more bark than bite and really a softy on the inside. He does look intimidating, though, which makes for a nice contrast.
Dean: I can’t remember when I first came across The Song of the Dragonborn. I don’t play video games. What I do remember is that I instantly thought of Leeland. The Dragonborn is such a strong, intriguing character, just like Leeland. Unbending and dangerous. A fierce friend in need and a strong protector. Plus, I like the chorus and the sound of the made-up language.
Collin: I didn’t know the song before, but when Dean played it for us, I knew what he meant. It’s dark and foreboding with the drums and the male voices, just like Leeland, when he thinks somebody is mistreated, and also full of promise and hope, like a ray of sunshine in a darkened world and did you know dragons have a place in many ancient myths, like the Greek, and the Norse mythology, and of course Chinese legends, and I like to draw dragons, because there are so many forms to choose from and colors and the shape of the wings alone can keep me occupied for hours, just like getting that glint in Leeland’s eyes right before he reduces an overbearing Dom to the size of a garden dwarf, and Peyton showed me pictures of BDSM dwarfs for the garden, but Martin says we can’t have one because Emily comes over to play, and he thinks Dog is probably going to eat them.
Seth: I haven’t known Leeland and Jonathan for long, but I guess everybody can see at first glance how perfectly they fit together. When the Rain begins to fall is indeed the song that describes them best. They are each other’s pillars of support and I’m pretty sure Jonathan would get Leeland the stars in the sky if he asked for them. They’re so sweet together.
Peyton: Yes, they are sweet. Just like the song. Gives me toothache. These two go together like vanilla ice cream with hot raspberries. Not really my cup of tea, but they are happy and it’s nice to see Jonathan doing everything in his power to put a smile on Leeland’s face. Gah, I can’t believe I said that! Stupid romance. I need to go watch Fast and the Furious in case it is contagious.

A Club Whisper Novel
Leeland Drake and Jonathan White are a committed BDSM couple and have just moved in together. Leeland has only one year left in college, and everything seems perfect… until Leeland’s uncle asks him to stand in for an injured UFC fighter.
Leeland wants to help his uncle, but he remembers all too well from his years competing in martial arts how strenuous life as an athlete can be. He doesn’t want to risk his relationship with Jonathan. After some discussion, they decide Leeland will go pro for a year.
As if the training and strict diet weren’t bad enough, the pressure skyrockets when Leeland encounters homophobic fighter Noah Adams—especially when they end up facing each other in the championship.
Between the bigoted rants of his opponent, the scrutiny of the media, the pressure from his sponsor, and a fire in his uncle’s gym, Leeland is close to breaking down. Only Jonathan’s support and love keep him focused enough to set foot in the octagon once more—and maybe even walk away a winner.
Xenia Melzer was born and raised in a small village in the South of Bavaria. As one of nature’s true chocoholics, she’s always in search of the perfect chocolate experience. So far, she’s had about a dozen truly remarkable ones. Despite having been in close proximity to the mountains all her life, she has never understood why so many people think snow sports are fun. There are neither chocolate nor horses involved and it’s cold by definition, so where’s the sense? She does not like beer either and has never been to the Oktoberfest—no quality chocolate there.
Even though her mind is preoccupied with various stories most of the time, Xenia has managed to get through school and university with surprisingly good grades. Right after school she met her one true love who showed her that reality is capable of producing some truly amazing love stories itself.
While she was having her two children, she started writing down the most persistent stories in her head as a way of relieving mommy-related stress symptoms. As it turned out, the stress relief has now become a source of the same, albeit a positive one.
When she’s not writing, she translates other authors’ manuscripts to German, enjoys riding and running, spending time with her kids, and dancing with her husband.
