Emily Pratchett, a graduate student in Art History the University in Northern California, has a problem. And that problem is Professor Kurt Schmidt.
Emily has been working as the professor’s teaching assistant for the past year. In that time, they’ve become much more than boss and employee. They’ve become confidants, partners in research papers and very good friends. In that time, Emily has also fallen in love with him.
When Kurt invites her to become a co-author for his latest book, she knows that nothing romantic can happen between the two of them. But, when she discovers that the professor’s feelings for her are just as strong as hers are for him, Emily finds herself between a rock and a hard place.
Can she put aside her desire to save Kurt’s job and the university’s reputation? Or, will Kurt and Emily’s passion for one another send them into a downward spiral without an end in sight?
