The Professor’s Secret by Peggy Bird
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I bought this book as a box set of beta hero books from Crimson Romance.
Claudia Manchester, English Lit professor, writes sizzling erotica under the pen name April Mayes. If her colleagues found out, she’ll never get tenure.
Brad Davis falls in love with Claudia, but she won’t tell him her real name. He knows her by yet another name – Claire Mason.
I really liked the characters in this book. Especially Claudia. Brad was a bit of a insensitive arse at one point and the resolution dragged a bit, but I cared about Claudia and wanted to see her have her happy ending.
There was some interesting discussion about the perceptions of the romance genre in there (all in context, obviously, because Claudia is an English Lit professor) and a rather excellent put down when someone asks her if she’s done all the things she writes about.
This book was rather hotter than the books I normally read (sex in a kitchen sounds unhygienic to me, but then, I’m British and we can be weird about these things).
