This professor's final exam includes a spanking.
There's no house restoration too challenging for Rae Jackson, a.k.a. "The Fix-It Lady". There's no fixing the past, though. Like the day she left college. A semester of flirting with her English professor ended when he spanked her to the best orgasm of her life. Afraid of her own eager willingness to comply with the sexy Dom's commands--no matter what--she fled.
Yet not even five years can dim her memory of his masterful touch.
Conn never forgot the one student who gave him a big fat "F" on the greatest test of his life. After all these years, he's still haunted by his uncharacteristic loss of control. When he finds the very object of his shame--and desire--crawling around under his grandmother's house, he swears to do anything to win Rae's trust.
Rae finds herself helpless against Conn's slow seduction. Exactly the way she likes it. Instead of poetry, this time she learns the erotic pleasure to be found in bondage--and submission--to the sexiest professor alive.
Warning: Explicit sex, spanking, light bondage, a crazy old lady who talks to ghosts, and one lethal pink parasol.

Holy guacamole ladies and gents, I have another winner! Seriously, if you are a fan of masterfully written characters, smokin' hot sex, tender romantic men and strong independent women you really need to check out Dear Sir, I'm Yours by Joely Sue Burkhart.
The first book in The Connaghers series is about the reunion of a professor and his undergraduate student five years after he spanked her in his office until she had an orgasm. In those five years Professor Connagher has obsessed over his lost love Rae Lynn. He realized where he went wrong as a Dom and set out to study and learn the right way to guide Rae Lynn's natural submissive side should he ever be blessed with finding her again. Rae Lynn, on the other hand, has spent the last five years caring for her ailing father, running the family business and married to a self-absorbed abusive loser.
Picking out a favorite part is a tough challenge for me. Would it be the crazy grandma who talks to her dead husband, wields a disciplining pink parasol, and expertly manipulates two pig-headed would-be lovers? Or maybe the poetry quotin' Dom professor, Conn, who has a PhD in tie-me-up-and-drive-me-crazy to go along with his PhD in English?
I think it has to be the letters Rae Lynn wrote to Conn in the five years they were apart, never having intended to give them to him. Each chapter in the book opens with one of Rae Lynn's letters that serve as a journal of her self-discovery as she marries an abusive man, watches her beloved father's health fail and their business go down the drain, and she finally divorces the jerk and closes the doors to her family business. Through Rae Lynn's letters, we see her go from a na´ve undergraduate student who ran away from a professor who showed her how much her body craved to be dominated to an enduring woman who understands the difference between a bully's selfish need to control and a dominant's gift to his submissive.
With tender moments that brought tears to my eyes, hysterical moments that had me gripping my sides, and Oh My Gawd moments that had me searching for a hand fan, I was up well into the night unwilling to put this amazing read down. The story was fast-paced, engaging, complex and well-rounded. Joely Sue Burkhart was a new author to me. She has talent in spades and I just can't wait to check out more of her books.
