Hiya, peeps! It’s Sunday! A day for reading, writing, eating cookies, and sharing. Excerpts, I mean. I don’t share cookies. 😀 Read on for another snippet from Learning to Love!
Continuing from where we left off…
Towanda’s thumbs swiped over Rebecca’s palms. Then a second time. A smile lit her face and her still-shut eyes crinkled in the corners. “Turn off your thoughts,” she whispered. “Open your mind to the here and now.”
Turn off my thoughts? She stifled a laugh. Like there was an off switch. She’d never been good at yoga, at least not the relaxation part of it, because she kind of sucked at making her brain shut up. Especially in moments of discomfort. How long does a palm reading take? Palms aren’t very big, and not all that exciting…
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?
