After some unexpected detours in life, Callie Lewes is determined to complete her PhD program and figure out the rest of her professional life. Her laser focus is finely tuned and she’s ready for a total immersion in nothing but literature, subpar student essays, and all the joys that come with being a graduate teaching assistant. She has no time for or interest in anything else–especially not dating.
If Callie were to entertain the idea of dating, she’s certain it would be with someone vibrant, open, and around her age. In other words: definitely not someone like Dr. Kate Jory, a new member of Pennbrook College’s English department. She’s intimidating, older, and a seemingly closed book. But she’s also brilliant and fascinating, and Callie is drawn to her in ways she’d never imagined possible.
Not that Kate notices. Or does she? Callie can’t tell, and though they develop an engaging, flirtatious friendship, she struggles to work up the courage to put herself directly in Kate’s potentially romantic path, wary of the type of fire their sparks could ignite.
