Kate Youngblood, a creative writing professor, is fast-approaching forty and feeling invisible. Men don’t notice her anymore, they don’t see her—except for her student, Sam Grist. His eyes are on her constantly, and Kate enjoys it. What she doesn’t know is that Sam watches her all the time… even when she doesn’t know it. Sam has had their future together all planned out for years, and he won’t allow anything—or anyone—to stand in his way. Kate belonged to him… she just didn’t know it yet.
