Cinder Brady has big plans. She wants to use her platform as a social media influence to start her own brand of organic cosmetics. Nothing will stand in her way. Not the company that refuses to do business with her until she has a formal education. And definitely not the grumpy and drop-dead-handsome mathematics professor who is hired to teach her private lessons. Professor Forest Cooper might be a jaguar shifter, but he doesn’t need to find his mate to be happy. All he needs are a few math problems and teaching assistants who don’t cry when he gives orders. But when the dean threatens his tenure if Forest doesn’t lay off the grumpy, he strikes a deal. Tenure in exchange for private lessons for some famous lady. A fair deal until he discovered the maddening woman in the mini-skirt is his mate. The last thing the pair expect during their first lesson is a lion attack. In hiding, Cinder and Forest have to overcome some misconceptions harder to solve than his favorite impossible math problem. Caught up in an international and dangerous scheme, will love be the solution?
