Short story.

Neil is a mathematics professor who is settling at the age of 40 for a woman who is sensible. That is until he meets Valentina who is in Scotland to promote her writing. He overhears where she's going for a short vacation before the fair and thus begins a really hot encounter between the two of them. Loved that these two people weren't all 100% sure of themselves. Really enjoyed the story. Hate the cover!
Cute love story! The hero acted like a jerk sometime but I still liked him and enjoyed the story!
The dude was nerdy, the chic was slutty, I loved it!
