Creative writing professor, Dr. Delaney Driscoll, has an ambitious plan: establish a new degree in romantic fiction. There’s just one problem, and his name is Dr. Devon Mayfield.
Devon, the gorgeous, uptight, all-business college dean and newest member of the curriculum committee thinks Delaney’s proposed degree is useless and a waste of university resources. What’s worse, he convinces the rest of the committee to follow his lead.
Delaney is instantly attracted to Devon’s Darcy-like broodiness—until he stands in the way of her career-long goal. And like Austen’s famous character, Devon’s first impression of her is far from flattering. But even as the two clash over academic philosophies, Delaney becomes the teacher and Devon the student in a remedial course on love.
In the end, can Delaney convince Devon that her effervescent love of life is exactly what he needs to forget the pain of his past and embrace a future with her?
