Blurb: 
Newly divorced Professor Evie Brown notices her student Cameron Slade and how attentive he seems, so totally unlike her ex-husband. Cameron is also delicious to look at, all taut body, broad shoulders, and hot eyes. He’s forbidden territory, but one late afternoon as she pleasures herself in an empty lecture hall, she looks up to find she’s not alone. He’s there…watching her.

And then there’s Sophie Walker. Ever since Evie met the sensual woman, she’s allowed her inhibitions to unreel, one by one. It’s Sophie who’s been sharing Evie’s erotic awakening, Sophie who she yearns for. Or is it?

Excerpt: 
I wipe clean the whiteboard, enjoying the push of the felt, swinging from side to side as I move, the squeaking sound it makes as it erases the past three hours’ worth of hard work. An image replays over and over—that unexpected reveal of Cameron’s torso—a handspan of bareness, the grooved shadow of muscle. It was a shock to the sterility of that lecture hall. My mouth waters. Bare, taut skin—that male skin, so much rougher, harsher than a woman’s.
Male.
I replace the lids on the markers and switch off the projector. Alone. Facing late afternoon emptiness.
If Cameron were to give me something I’d like... I’d like him, close to me, all sweet-sandy raw male youth, at my knees. Male.

I swallow back the desire that is starting to slither through me, stroking the space between my neck and collarbone. Cameron. I picture the way he ran his hands through his lightly gelled hair, the bulge in his arms as his hands extended behind his head. The soft curve of his lower lip. That vulnerable stretch of torso that was making my mouth salivate like a beast before its slaughter.

Interview with Suzanne Jefferies

1. What is your favourite part of this book and why?

When Evie starts to let go of who she thinks she is, and starts to embrace who she’s becoming. She’s in a world that is steeped in tradition and rules and is very male-dominated. But then this woman is broadening her horizons to another world, that is about pushing boundaries and sensuality, and being more receptive. Like a lot of women, Evie has found so much of her past linked to her various roles, but now she’s finding out about the Evie without those roles.

2. If you could spend time with a character from your book whom would it be? And what would you do during that day?

Sophie. She’s fun, with an adventurous, playful spirit. Take one of the convertibles from her showroom, put the top back and head out on a road trip. Go on rollercoasters, hustle at pool, and hang out at seedy bars I’d never be caught dead in. Then we’d go for truly excellent chocolate cake, because all great days need baked goods.

3. If you could have been the author of any book ever written, which book would you choose?

Any book? Lady Chatterley’s Lover by DH Lawrence. What a beautiful and tender book that is. And it was scandalous and banned! A little notoriety doesn’t hurt.

4. Are your characters based off real people or did they  all come entirely from your imagination?

Often, characters start off as a kind of composite of people I’ve met, but very quickly they become their own person who is unrecognizable from anyone I know.

5. What made you want to become a writer?

Since I was about sixteen, it’s all I wanted to do. In my highschool year book, I even wrote that I wanted to ‘write trashy novels’. Making up stories, that’s what I was good at. Good thing is ‘making up stories’ is what fiction writers do!
