Description
Claudia Brown made the perfect life for herself, full of all the trappings of success. She put herself through school and became the youngest English department chairperson at the University of Pennsylvania. One trap she swore to avoid was marriage. To her, a one-night stand was the preferred modus operandi. But when Claudia realizes she could grow old alone, she decides to have a baby—minus the attachment of the father. After a meticulous search she finds the perfect specimen: Robert Sterling, a fellow professor. But she never factored in the one thing that could threaten her entire operation—falling in love with Robert.

Excerpt:
Darnell called as Claudia was walking back to her office after her last class. She recognized his soft Southern drawl immediately when he said, “Hi, baby girl.” Just hearing those two words was enough temptation to break her own rules and see him just one more time. However, that would make it even harder to turn him down for the following date. Therefore, she stuck to her original game plan.

“Hi, Darnell.”

“Sorry I had to leave so early, but I promise to make it up to you on Saturday.”

“No need.”

She could envision his back stiffening as he replied, “What’s that supposed to mean?”

“I can’t see you Saturday.”

“What about Friday?”

“That’s out, as well.” Claudia sighed.

“Well, then, you pick a day.”

“Look, I like you. You’re terrific in bed. In fact, I had one of the best nights ever, but I can’t see you again.”

“Can’t or won’t?” He sounded strained.

“Does it matter?”

“It does to me.”

“Won’t.”

Darnell was incredulous. “Are you dissing me?”

“It’s not like that—”

“That’s exactly what it is.”

“Look, Darnell, you’re a really nice guy and I don’t want to argue with you. I really like you, but I don’t want to have a relationship with you so it’s best to stop before things happen.”

“I just don’t believe you, woman. Nobody has ever turned me down for a second date. You hear me?”

“I can understand that. You’re one of the best lovers I’ve ever been with.”

“But, you still don’t want to see me again, right?”

“Right.”

“Well that’s just crazy. In fact, woman, I think you’re 100 percent certifiable and maybe you’re doing me a favor.”

A moment later, Claudia realized he’d disconnected. She knew he thought she was crazy. To most people, her attitude came off strange, but for her it was the safest route to take. She had to protect herself. She saw it as a moat or first line of defense separating her from being hurt again by another heartless, self-centered bastard. Compared to the ocean the moat once had been, this was an improvement. There had been a time, when she couldn’t even bear to let a man touch her.
