Happy weekend, my wordy warriors! I’m about to hit the road so I’ll make this quick. Here’s another snippet from Learning to Love!
Continuing from where we left off…
He was clearly a mirage. Or maybe she was having a stroke.
“William, I take it?” Pete asked, effectively killing the moment. At the other man’s nod, he stretched out his hand to properly introduce himself. “Pete Derenberger. Welcome to Kendal High.”
While the men exchanged pleasantries, she swallowed down the wily red pepper, set her remaining lunch aside, and sat up straighter. She glanced again at William, noting that although he appeared to be calm and in control, his shifting feet spoke a different story. Couldn’t blame the guy. Walking into a high school for the first time on the opposite side of the authority line was unnerving to say the least.
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!
I’m spending this week with my dad in the Land of No Internet, and on Thursday I’ll be heading to Toronto to record a podcast with Michael Tamblyn, the CEO of Kobo. But what excites me even more than that is the fact that I’ll be meeting my Steeped in Love editor for the first time, face-to-face, for lunch before the recording! This is my last full week off before school starts, so I’m gonna enjoy it as much as I can. Hope you do the same! 🙂
