I am so excited to have Zoe’s Impetus as part of this awesome, new anthology with so many great authors. It is now available for preorder on Amazon and it goes LIVE on 10th August. Don’t forget to click and add it to your TBR on Goodreads and see what people are already saying about it!
Eight hot doms bring the action in this geeky extravaganza of intelligent, hot, and highly skilled men who aren’t afraid to take control.
Bring a sense of humor, a bacon sandwich, and a fan because it’s going to get hot in here!
In this collection of short stories, we explore the N.E.R.D. in all the usual settings you’d find one. From comic cons, to classrooms, to even an alien spaceship(?!), we bring you the N.E.R.D. in his full glory. The action is hot, the situations charming, and the man – they are total N.E.R.D.s.
Did you read my excerpt?
“Is there a problem, Miss Kellam?” He asks, spinning in his seat to face me in a heartbeat.
Oh crap. He’s caught me looking at him when I’m supposed to be reading! I know I’m flushing as I answer. “I, er, no… I’m fine, thank you, Professor.”
My face is flaming with embarrassment, and I imagine just how red my blush is as I conclude, wishing that the floor will open up and swallow me completely.
He regards me with a wry smile, the look of his face making me even hotter. “I am pleased to hear it,” he tells me. “I assume you don’t need my help to actually read the books?”
His tone has softened, but I barely even register it. Something about his smile has mesmerised me, and for the longest time I just sit watching him, despite the ardent protests coming from my brain. Get a grip, Zoe, it chastises me. This is Professor Neil, for fuck’s sake, not some Hollywood action hero, and yet, there’s no getting past it, my botany professor is making me hornier than I have felt for a long time.
“Miss Kellam?” he says again, rising from his seat. “Do you need help?”
I fluster as he approaches. “Yes, er—I mean, no, sir,” I reply, turning to face the book again, although I can still make him out in my peripheral vision.
Neil paces towards me, weaving his way past piles of books to where I am sitting. “Are you sure?” he asks, his hand resting against the back of my chair. “You do seem rather agitated.”
I glance up at his towering figure, noting that dark brow arching as he appraises me, and I swear I lose my breath. “I…” I hesitate, trying desperately to get a handle on myself. “I’m just having trouble focusing on the book, sir.”
“Really?” he enquires, smirking at my response. “Perhaps this is the problem, Miss Kellam. It seems you need assistance focusing on the task at hand.”
He edges closer to me, a waft of his provocative cologne washing over my face at his proximity. The spicy, earthy scent makes me hot and heady.
“It might surprise you to know, that when I’m not researching the cell structure of plants, I’ve developed my own way of helping young ladies to focus.” He’s smiling as he speaks, the timbre of his voice garnering my attention even before his words register.
I blink up at him, my heart pounding as I catch my breath. I have no idea what the professor means, but something about his message speaks to my core, goading me in the most insanely erotic way.
“Wh-what way, sir?” I ask, my own voice trembling with some level of excited apprehension.
His face relaxes, and he takes a step backwards. “I’m not sure you’re ready to know,” he replies, shaking his head as though he is musing on his own private conundrum.
The retreat fills me with urgency, and I watch as Neil turns away from me, facing the small window which looks out to the open fields. All of a sudden, my greatest need is to capture his attention again, to not let him get away.
“Professor!” I cry out, my tone demanding. “I am ready… please!”
I’m on my feet, but somehow, I can’t make them move forward. Instead, I stand, breathless, watching him eye the expanse of window. Slowly, ever so slowly, as though he’s intentionally torturing me, he turns, and his steely blue gaze finds me at once.
“You’re sure?” he asks, moving back towards me. “Because what I propose is not conventional. It doesn’t conform to university procedures, and if you agree, it will have to remain between just the two of us.”
