Book Description

Anna has landed her dream job as an Assistant Professor of English literature at a prestigious college in the South. Instead of charging ahead with her career, however, she is confronted by hurdles, pitfalls and mysteries. Why does no one restrain the demented hoarder who secretly uses her office as his private storeroom? Who is responsible for her sudden loss in salary? What is behind the vandalism in her department? Is it a personal attack against her irreverent and somewhat unconventional teaching style?

Professor Giles Cleveland is supposed to mentor her in all this, but he’s arrogant, sardonic, condescending, disconcertingly attractive and – Anna keeps reminding herself as the temptation to start a kamikaze affair with him becomes overwhelming – absolutely out of bounds. Anna and Giles grow increasingly reckless and it is only a matter of time before they will be caught and Anna’s career will crash and burn. But when the crash comes, it’s worse than Anna imagined. And far better than she could have dreamed.

Six Fun Facts About Giles:

1.     Giles has a scar running from the corner of his left eye to his ear. He got it when a cricket ball hit him in the face. Anna’s friend Irene says it makes him look like a professor who’s been in a bar fight. Sexy!
2.     He lives in a cottage by a lake because there is something of D. H. Lawrence’s gamekeeper in him.
3.     He fell in love with Anna over a year before the story begins, when he saw her give a paper at a conference. He never tells her this.
4.     He isn’t sure whether he is a saint or a coward for not seducing Anna, and damn the consequences.
5.     In the movie, he would be played by Ralph Fiennes.
6.     If Giles went over to the Dark Side, he would be an investment banker.

About the Author
Nina Lewis wrote her first story when she was nine years old, a drama of love and jealousy set in a circus. Her best friend and she performed it to themselves over and over again, for ever changing the dialogue, conflicts and endings. It strikes her as ironically appropriate that her first published novel is set on a college campus – the habitat of many a strange, loveable or fierce creature. When she isn’t busy training animals to jump through the hoops of college education, Nina is knee-deep in her second novel, which is set in England during the French Revolution – historical romance being her favourite genre of fiction.
