Royce Devereaux isn't your average sexy professor. He has a lot of rules in his professional and personal life. He keeps both worlds separated. He has to. He's somewhat of a public figure—and yes, he's made enemies climbing to the top. Being a world-famous paleontology professor doesn't mix well with his romantic life. He likes his sex rough, and a whole lot of naughty. Which means his students are 100% off limits.
One problem. His new graduate student assistant, Kenzie. She looks at him like a kid looks at birthday cake, and he doesn't like it. Except, he does. He likes it too much. She's feisty and smart—which only makes him want to tie her up and master her body. And her buttoned-up librarian look—it makes him want to strip her naked...slowly. He has to find a way to ignore her. It's only one semester. Right?
But when an enemy decides to use Kenzie to force his hand, Royce has no choice but to keep her close. Very, very close. His two worlds have just collided. He just hopes he can let her go once the danger is over...
Kat Roberts has a plan. Love doesn't fit into it.
Move to England.
Study at Cambridge.
Become a history professor.
See? No room for dating or love. Life is going exactly according to plan....until she met him one snowy night in an English pub. Tristan Kingsley, the future Earl of Pembroke. He's as gorgeous as a god, funny, sweet, and oh-my-god that accent... With a chiseled jaw, bewitching eyes, and a voice as smooth as a glass of brandy...he's every woman's dream. He tempts Kat to leave her carefully laid plans behind as she falls head over tea kettle for this British playboy.
Tristan Kingsley went into the bar that night to avoid the duties of his future as a titled lord. When a gorgeous American girl kisses him on a dare from her friends, that kiss turns his world upside down. Oh, he's used to having exactly what he wants: women, money, notoriety. But now he wants Kat. In his arms, in his bed—and the more time he spends with her, the more he wants her in his life. Tired of shallow, social climbing English debutantes, Tristan can't get enough of his brilliant, sweet Yank.
But not everyone is happy with the situation. His father, the Earl of Pembroke, has other plans for Tristan, and getting rid of Kat is number one on the list.
If you thought this was a fairytale of a girl finding her Prince—er, Earl, and living happily-ever-after...then prepare yourself for one heck of an American Revolution.

I owe him a debt I can't pay back with money.
He wants something else: me, for one year.
But I don’t even know how he is...
365 days and nights doing everything he wants, except that.
“I’m not going to sleep with you,” I say categorically.
“I’m going to make you a promise,” his eyes challenge mine. “Before our time is up, you’ll beg me for it.”
Now, I want him more than ever.
Especially when I run my fingers over his chiseled body and he teases me with his tongue.
I want him so much I am going to scream.
I want him so much I might even beg....
