He trapped her into helping him. Can she trust him with her heart?
Our autonomic reflexes—fight, flight, freeze, blush, sweat, mate—are biological analogs to the force of gravity. And just as impossible to resist.
Leif has always found women easy to work with, until he tries to work with biologist Jane Morgan. Her fixation on writing her grants, to the exclusion of helping him, is unacceptable. He needs her time, her brains and her expertise, and he’ll stop at nothing to get them.
Jane needs funding. Which means she needs to write a grant. Which means she has no time for helping a literary scholar trying to write science fiction. So all the involuntary urges he arouses will just have to step aside and leave her alone.
She has work to do.
Gravitating Toward Disorder is a classic enemies to lovers romance set in a prestigious private university near the Texas Hill Country.
Neurobiologist Jane Morgan has a life neatly divided between work and work until scholar Leif Danziger manipulates her into helping him revise his science fiction novel.
Leif is scrambling for advancement in a department turned upside down by a new emphasis on writing for profit. The science fiction book he dashed off in response isn’t doing well. Publishers have rejected it as ridiculous and unredeemable. Leif needs help from someone who knows something about biology.
Jane wants nothing to do with the project or with Leif. She does science, not fiction, and she needs her time for grant writing. Besides, Danziger is dangerous—tall, dark, and too attractive to be trusted. She’s been involved with men like him before and nothing good has ever come of it.
When his efforts to recruit Jane’s help legitimately fail, Leif resorts to blackmail. And once again Jane finds herself pursued by a man interested in something other than her.
