Physics. Zanita Masterson knew nothing about the subject, and cared little to learn. Until a reporting job led her to one Tyberius Augustus Evans. The rogue scientist was six feet of piercing blue eyes, rock-hard muscles and maverick ideas, and the idea that he was seriously interested in her seemed insane. But a night of monster movies, cookie-dough ice cream and wild love was almost enough to convince Zanita that the passion-minded professor was determined to woo her – with his own masterful equation for sizzling ecstasy and high energy.


It is the second time I have read this book, and it was just as much fun as the first time, a decade ago or so. Zanita is a journalist in a small town, and determined to expose a phony psychic healer. In order to do some research, she goes to a lecture about psychics, but she goes into the wrong class, a physics class. And that is a subject she has no knowledge about whatsoever. But the professor in charge, is definitely interested in Zanita and her chaotic way of thinking. And as she has just sworn of men, he has to do his best to pretend his interest in her is in helping her catch this fraud, instead of him wanting her in his life. And Tyber certainly has such a way with words, and with kisses, that Zanita wants to believe him. So she moves into his mansion with him, his enormous cat and his crazy cook/housekeeper who seems to think they are pirates.

This book is so much fun, and Zanita is such a naïve heroine but still fun and determined. She totally keeps surprising Tyber and throwing him of his game. I loved their interaction and especially the ending of the book. She is not always as naïve after all ;) And his house is certainly original and fun as well. It made the perfect back drop.


If you can get your hands on this old timer, I suggest you pick it up and get ready for some fun reading time.

8 stars.

    1. Lol Melissa, old for a book that is. So many people only read new books and new authors, and I just love old books too.
