She's a professor at a prestigious university, and he's one of her department's new graduate students.
Dr. Mary Pine never imagined that she would be starting her fifth year as a faculty member in the Medieval Studies department as a thirty-two-year-old widow.
She is sure she will be the butt of every joke around campus as the collateral damage of a sex scandal that made national headlines. And her husband left her completely broke before he killed himself.
Mary doesn't want to lose her house and all the money she invested in it, so she makes an arrangement through The Club to get out the financial ruins her dead husband left her in.
All Mary has to do for the money is date a wealthy man, who wants all of the benefits of having a mistress, without any of the hassles of an actual relationship.
When Dante McNally chooses Mary for an arrangement, there is just one catch.
He's one of her department's new graduate students, and the recipient of a prestigious research fellowship funded by his billionaire father.
And this is the year Mary is supposed to be applying for tenure.
SAPPHIRE BEAUTIFUL is a COMPLETE FULL-LENGTH novel with no cliff-hanger and an HEA.
