Hiya, peeps! I’m high on cold meds and cough syrup, but I’m baaaaack! You may have noticed a few changes to my website. It’s undergoing a major facelift, which should be complete by next week, so stay tuned! In the meantime, here’s a new snippet from Learning to Love!
Continuing from where we left off…
She smiled as she bit into her wrap, chewing as quickly as she could before her lunchtime supervision in the gym started. “So, what’s his story?” she asked. “The student teacher.”
“Told me he graduated from Columbia and worked at some big ad agency. Can’t believe he quit to become a teacher.”
“Our lives are so glamorous. Everybody thinks so.”
He snorted as he poured dressing over his salad. “Gotta be a bullshit story. Probably got fired for screwing his secretary.”
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!
Well, I had a blast and a half on my trip to North Carolina to visit my best gal-pals, and I had a wicked-good time hanging with my dad and some of the extended family when I got back, and we both gobbled up my brother’s kiddos for a couple days…and that’s why we’re both now sick and dying from the plague. But, heck, it was worth it! 🙂 Hope you’re all enjoying your summer! See you next week! xo
