An erotic romance novella set in an archaeological dig, in the grounds of the Ancient Roman city of Leptis Minus in Tunisia.

As site supervisor on an archaeological dig, in the grounds of the Ancient Roman city of Leptis Minus in Tunisia, Dr Beth Andrew’s hands are well and truly full. Her first foreign excavation, which she co-runs with the American archaeologist Dr Harrison Harris, gets off to a shaky start due to the jealous interference of Harrison’s ex, and an overzealous student... Love and lust really can cloud even the cleverest person’s judgement.

Thank you for inviting me along today to share a little from my very first publication of 2013!
Digging Deep is the second of my Secret Library e-novellas for Xcite- following hot on the heels of my best selling novella, A Sticky Situation.
An erotic story, which focuses as much on romance as kinky encounters, Digging Deep was inspired by my own adventures as a student of archaeology back in the dark ages!

Here’s an extract to tickle your taste buds...Beth Andrews has just been falsely accused of having a sexual relationship with one of her students, and she is not happy...
...Beth awoke with a start and sat bolt upright. Her pulse was racing ten to the dozen. Flashes of the dream she’d been having replayed behind her eyes.
Harrison had been standing over her naked body, disappointed yet lustful craving etched on his face. He’d yelled at her, telling her she was a slut one minute, but then complaining he couldn’t see her chest the next. Ryan lay on top of her, his bare back protecting her breasts from the sun as he gave her a blissfully slow fuck. The Beth of the dream was aware she wanted to speak, to make some sort of noise, but her mouth hadn’t been able to open.
Shivering, Beth tried to take control of her night-time thoughts, clamping her legs together to deny her fast-growing arousal. She could almost feel the rough baked clay of the roof on her back, as she’d been trapped there in her dream. Ryan’s thick cock had been moving rhythmically within her, his eyes focused on hers in such a way that Beth had been unable to look at Harrison to her left, or to the figure who silently stood to her right.
A fresh wave of clammy sweat trickled down a wide-awake Beth’s neck. She hugged her sleeping bag to her chest as she realised who it had been standing with them in her dream. A supercilious Candida, an iPhone held out recording the salacious sight before her. The vision filled Beth with almost as much dread as if the dream had been a fixture of fact and not a figment of her imagination.
‘This is utterly ridiculous!’ Beth addressed the room in general as she wriggled out of her sleeping bag. Wrapping the blanket back around her shoulders immediately, she checked her watch. It was only half-past five in the morning. With a groan, she dug her toothbrush out of her bag, deciding that although extra sleep would have been most welcome, the dreams that might accompany it were not.
Creeping down the stairs as quietly as possible so she didn’t wake anyone, Beth attacked her teeth, the simple act of hygiene making her feel better. With each brush back and forth she felt a little more awake, and her usual sensible perspective took charge of her out-of-control imagination.
These are the facts, she told herself as she rinsed the white paste around her mouth; first, you made an error of judgement over the mosaic. You’ve apologised, Harrison wasn’t angry, and he isn’t going to send you home, or report you for being an idiot. He respects you as an archaeologist. Second, Candida is a gossip. She probably invented the whole sex on the roof scenario so she’d have something to say to a friend in the States. Third, Harrison doesn’t know you very well so you can’t be too upset if he believed what he heard, especially after you withheld information about Ryan breaking the mosaic. And last of all, he kissed you because you were distressed and he was trying to calm you. He wasn’t testing you out to see if you were a slut. But however nice it was, it meant nothing.
Beth spat into the bucket, rinsed it out, and poured the water away. All that remains, she continued to tell herself, is for me to say sorry to Harrison for overreacting, and to make sure that Ryan apologises for breaking the mosaic. Candida is Harrison’s student and not mine, so her bad behaviour is his problem. Then perhaps I can get on with my job!
From the moment she’d been told she had got the job as co-supervisor on a world-class site with Harrison three months earlier, Beth had been determined to work as hard as she possibly could to prove her worth. Now, with her integrity questioned, she was more resolute than ever. No way would anyone get the impression she was even remotely unprofessional ever again. Deciding that going back to bed for only an hour was pointless, Beth headed towards the only room with furniture.
The dining room had one large table in it, with 12 chairs, each virtually jammed next to the walls; such was the limited amount of space.
‘I made you a coffee.’
The voice coming out of the gloom of the poorly lit room made Beth jump a foot and give an involuntary shriek of surprise.
‘Hell, doll! Are you always so jumpy?’ Harrison, who looked as if he’d had very little sleep himself, sat cradling a chipped mug of what smelt to Beth like at least a triple, if not quadruple, espresso. He pushed a mug of a similarly rich milk-free concoction in her direction.
Dismissing the flutter between her thighs, as the need to feel Harrison’s lips on hers grew again, Beth kept her tone light. ‘What are you doing up?’
Sliding between a chair and the table so she could sit opposite him, Beth gestured towards the coffee that was far stronger than anything she usually touched. ‘Thanks.’
Busily quashing the residue of his own erotic dreams of a naked Beth writhing on the roof of the house with his dick between her lips; images that had sent him wanking in the dingy toilet cubicle at two o’clock in the morning, Harrison merely said, ‘I’m a terrible sleeper, especially when I have to sleep on freezing concrete. You?’
‘I felt bad about how we left things last night.’ Beth took a sip of her coffee and winced; it was pure caffeine. ‘I’m sorry I overreacted. I’m not used to being suspected of sleeping with my students. ‘
Harrison held up a reassuring hand. ‘I’ve been thinking about that too. Of course you were livid, and to be honest, after being accused of sleeping with someone in your charge I can’t blame you. I totally understand. I mean, it’s a basic rule. Don’t sleep with people you work with, and definitely don’t sleep with students in your care!’
‘Even if they’re of the musclebound Adonis variety, and owe you big time!’ Beth risked a joke. She wasn’t sure if it was the relief of finding that Harrison understood and had forgiven her uncharacteristic fury, or the coffee that was knocking her sense of humour back into place, loosening her up, but she was relieved to feel more like her normal self again.
A wry smile lit the corners of Harrison’s lips. ‘Even then!’
