Hello, and happy December, all! Hope yours has started off delightfully! Today I’ll be sharing more from my WIP, Learning to Love, so grab your school books and hurry up before you’re late to class! 😉
Continuing from where we left off….
“Got my student teacher coming in today to meet me and the students before he starts next week, just to get a feel for the place.” Opening the mini fridge, he grabbed the grocery bag inside containing his lunch—the one she knew his wife painstakingly prepared for him, like she did each night, which usually consisted of at least three courses.
“Oh yeah, I forgot about that. Hey, grab mine too,” she said before he’d shut the fridge door.
He obliged, nosily poking his head inside her lunch bag. “What is that, a veggie wrap?”
“Roasted red pepper, eggplant, and hummus.”
Shuddering, he tossed her the bag and took a seat at the desk opposite hers. “Now you’re gonna have garlic breath all afternoon, Ledgey.”
“Exactly, and I’ll threaten to breathe on the little punks if they don’t do as I ask.”
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?
