Good morning, all you fabulous people! Since today is the last day of March (and how the heck did that happen?), let’s keep marching forward with another excerpt from Learning to Love! 🙂
Continuing from where we left off…
Rebecca blinked. “Uh…”
Towanda swept the remaining cards into a box, then she sat in the seat opposite Rebecca’s. “The truth hurts sometimes.”
“Ohhhh, so they don’t actually bite…?”
The older woman guffawed. “You’re not a believer, are you?”
“Well, I mean, I…no. Not exactly.” She shrugged, feeling as though confessing such a thing was sacrilege in Towanda’s purple tent.
Here’s the blurb:
Rebecca Ledgerwood is a Physical Education teacher who’s ready to invest some sweat equity into a lasting romance. On a whim, she has her palm read before summer vacation ends, and she’s told she’s an old soul who’ll find happiness with a younger man.
William Whitney leaves an unfulfilling career to pursue teaching and gets placed at Rebecca’s school for his Physical Education practicum. He’s desperate to make a difference, convinced that the choices he made in the past contributed to his younger sister’s death. Kendal High School is nothing like the prep school he attended as a teenager, but he’s determined to make the most of his time there, especially if it makes Rebecca notice him.
Though they come from vastly different backgrounds, there’s an undeniable chemistry that sparks between the two. They resist, as they must, until his practicum ends, but when he’s offered a teaching position at his former prep school, will he take the easy way out, or fight for what’s right in front of him?
Thanks so much for stopping by and be sure to visit the other Weekend Writing Warriors!
It’s currently after one (in the morning! *gasp*) as I’m typing this, and for very good reason. I’ve been out on date #2 WITH THE SAME GUY at a karaoke bar, singing songs, making new friends, dancing, drinking, eating chicken wings, and loving life! Hope April is full of wonderful things for all of you! Till next week, my friends! 🙂
