…Happily Ever After
(A Sexy Series Novella)
by Carly Phillips
Learning curves have never been so off-limits.
Professor Shane Warden is on the verge of getting tenure. He never thought he’d see the day, after a false accusation from a student years ago that nearly destroyed his career, and decimated his ability to trust. But the moment he walks into class and lays eyes on the seductive blonde with legs that go on forever and lips he immediately wants to kiss, he knows he’s in trouble.
This time for real.
Single mom Amber Davis is finally living her dream of going back to college. In the ten years since she dropped out to have a baby—and recover from his father’s death—it’s been the goal that always felt just out of reach. Until now. But one look at her hot, sexy professor, and Amber is head over heels in lust. It doesn’t take long before their attraction blazes out of control.
Neither of them can afford a forbidden affair.
Yet it’s the one thing they are powerless to stop.
It will only take one hint of a rumor to destroy everything they’ve worked so hard to achieve . . . and in this case the rumors are true.

OMG I loved this story! Shane and Amber were simply fabulous! How did you choose them for this novella?
Thank you! I knew that with Landon’s twin, Levi’s death driving the story he needed a presence. Giving his ex-girlfriend his son enabled me to do that! But ten years have passed and Amber needed to move on and have an adult relationship which she finds with Shane.
Amber’s story is emotional and I admire her strength as a single mom. Is it ever hard to give characters emotional pasts?
Actually that’s the easiest part of writing for me, giving characters an emotional past. My difficulty lies in plot. I’m a stronger character writer.
