As a professor of historical literature at a prestigious San Francisco university, Amanda Fine has the perfect job in the perfect city. The new guy and fellow academic at work should be the perfect man for her. Except Amanda's idea of the perfect man is Jericho, a Harley-riding, leather-wearing, ponytailed, scruffy-bearded, make-your-panties-wet, world-class bad boy. When Amanda struts into his tattoo shop ready for a down-and-dirty seduction, Jericho can only assume the high-falutin', pearl-wearing beauty is slumming.
When their explosive chemistry starts moving toward something deeper, preconceived notions and assumptions blind Amanda and Jericho. But with love on the line, this not-so-traditional literature professor and not-so-unconventional tattoo artist must learn to see what lies beneath.
