Sociology scholar Madeline Watson can't wait to undertake the study of human mating rituals for her dissertation. Too bad the university thinks she's spent too much time in the ivory tower to undertake such an racy subject. Now she needs to shed her good girl image in a hurry, and she knows just the man to help....
Mechanic-turned-teacher Cal Turner is definitely not ready to provide the kind of lessons Maddy's looking for. Despite his long- standing reputation as a rebel, Cal needs to turn his life around now that guardianship of his younger sister is on the line. But once Maddy decides to turn herself into a bad girl extraordinaire, Cal has no choice but put out the fire in her wake, or get caught up in the blaze along with her!
Four-time RITA finalist Joanne Rock has never met a romance sub-genre she didn't like. The USA Today bestselling author of over eighty books enjoys writing a wide range of stories, most recently focusing on sexy contemporaries and small-town family sagas. An optimist by nature and perpetual seeker of silver linings, Joanne finds romance fits her life outlook perfectly---love is worth fighting for. A frequent speaker at regional and national writing conferences she enjoys giving back to the writing community that nurtured and inspired her early career. She has a Masters degree in Literature from the University of Louisville but credits her fiction writing skills to her intensive study with friend and fellow author Catherine Mann. When she's not writing, Joanne enjoys travel to gather new ideas.
