What could college English Professor Caitlin Shanahan ever have in common with the brash carpenter Kurt Davis? The sexy sprite Meghan Keenan, that’s what.
Level headed English Professor Caitlin Shanahan has finally earned tenure and purchased the century-old two-story house of her dreams in the college town of Burntside, Wisconsin—at thirty-four, she’d better face facts: her future is teaching college and writing plays, not falling in love. So why is she so drawn to foxy little hometown actress Meghan Keenan, who’s rented her upstairs apartment, or worse, to the girl’s gorgeous hunk of a lover Kurt Davis, a carpenter who’s never even been to college?
Twenty-year-old Meg has a plan. First she’ll seduce the reluctant professor, then she’ll share her sexual delights with both Cat and her brawny carpenter, and when she’s successfully brought them together, she can make her escape and explore what’s beyond the only town she’s ever lived in.
Kurt can’t stand the up-tight professor who’s hired him to build a gazebo and refurbish her old house—the house he wanted for himself. Even if Meg’s scheme succeeds, he knows Caitlin would never look at him twice. No need to go there in his fantasies…
Our Meghan’s Playhouse series actually got its start with a stand-alone novella we wrote as a sexual F-F-M romp, not expecting anything serious to emerge. But given our backgrounds and the causes we believe in, it wasn’t long before things like class prejudice, ageism, and latent homophobia surfaced in some of our characters. A college professor and a carpenter? The situation was ripe for stereotypes, and we love breaking those open!
“Why would you want to mess around with an older woman?” Kurt paused. “With a professor, for God’s sake!”
“Why not? I think she’ll be fun.”
“Fun. I doubt she knows the first thing about fun. Have you ever seen her laugh? Really laugh?”
“She will with me.”
Kurt his folded his arms across his solid chest. “Do you even know she’s into women?”
“She will be.” Meg cocked her head to the side. “You don’t think I can seduce Cat?”
Kurt exhaled and grimaced. “Hell, you could charm a rock. If you want her, she doesn’t stand a chance. I’m almost sorry for her. But why would you even bother?”
“I like her. She’s bright. She cares. And I’m envious of her tall slim body. Besides all of that,” she flicked her tongue at Kurt, “I want to taste her. I think she’ll be dynamite in bed if we have enough patience with her.”
Kurt’s eyes glazed and his fingers curled at his sides. “We. We?” He shook his head vigorously. “No way, kid. You’ve had plenty of hair-brained ideas before, but this one is in a league of its own. If you think I’m going to help you screw that uptight professor, then you’ve been smoking something you’d better get rid of.”
Meg remained quiet, delighting in Kurt’s obvious consternation.
He paced and kicked at a lawn chair. “When did you cook this scheme up? Why?” He glowered. “No, don’t answer. I don’t even want to hear about it. That tight-assed redhead slaving over her desk upstairs wouldn’t give me the time of day if I wasn’t handy with a hammer.” He smiled devilishly. “But then I wouldn’t either, if she didn’t have enough money to pay me premium prices.”
“Oh, you big, bad boy,” Meg teased, latching on to the front of his open shirt. “I beg to differ. You can’t tell me a virile guy like you has worked on this house so long without having a brief fantasy of fucking the mistress of the house.”
He looked like the kid who’d been caught with his hand in the cookie jar. “Well, not for long.”
“I thought so.” She lowered a hand and squeezed his hardening arousal. “At least I won’t have to assume you’re going brain dead on me.”
“You are a minx.” He brushed his chin across the top of her head.
