Character is a teacher or professor (Sapphic Reading Challenge #17)

character is a teacher or professor

This week’s Sapphic Reading Challenge post features books in which the main character is a teacher or a professor.

I know some readers stay away from teacher romances because they assume these books always include a teacher/student romance, but that’s not the case with the books I picked for this category. In almost all of the books recommended, the romance is between the teacher and a colleague or someone who’s not involved with her professional life at all. If the romance is between the teacher or professor and one of her students, the author handled it in a way that avoids crossing ethical boundaries as much as possible.
