Educating Dr. Mayfield by Rebecca Heflin
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Educating Dr Mayfield is book #3 in the Sterling University romance series set in Georgia.
Delaney Driscoll lectures at Sterling University and is hoping to persuade the curriculum committee to agree her new proposed major in fine arts.
Devon Mayfield is the new Dean of Sterling’s College of Business. He meets Delaney at a local bar, but any sizzling attraction between them is denied. Later he turns the curriculum committee against Delaney’s proposal and ruins her hopes.
When Dr Sam Love seeks new participants for a highly scientific ‘love test match’, Devon decides to take part hoping it might find him a suitable partner without the need for any romantic effort on his part. However he’s not prepared for his perfect match to be Delaney. Will Dr Love’s theories be proved correct?
This is a series of easy read smouldering romances set amongst academia; I’ve now read and enjoyed books #2 and #3. Following a popular story arc, they can be read as standalones or part of the series.

He has plenty to learn about love. She’s just the woman who can teach him.
Creative writing professor, Dr. Delaney Driscoll, has an ambitious plan: establish a new degree in romantic fiction. There’s just one problem, and his name is Dr. Devon Mayfield.
Devon, the gorgeous, uptight, all-business college dean and newest member of the curriculum committee thinks Delaney’s proposed degree is useless and a waste of university resources. What’s worse, he convinces the rest of the committee to follow his lead.
Delaney is instantly attracted to Devon’s Darcy-like broodiness—until he stands in the way of her career-long goal. And like Austen’s famous character, Devon’s first impression of her is far from flattering. But even as the two clash over academic philosophies, Delaney becomes the teacher and Devon the student in a remedial course on love.
In the end, can Delaney convince Devon that her effervescent love of life is exactly what he needs to forget the pain of his past and embrace a future with her?
