Hey-hey! Happy November and happy NaNoWriMo to those who’re participating, including myself! Yep, I’m taking the plunge for the first time this year. Pray for me! Here’s another snippet from Learning to Love, the book I plan to be finished by the end of the month! 🙂
Continuing from where we left off…
Somehow, they’d managed to make their way back to the Phys. Ed. office. Small school or not, there were enough hallways and corridors to make his head spin. He planned on staying a while longer just to get a little more used to the lay of the land, with no one watching or leading the way.
Pete jammed his key into the lock, and Will held his breath. Rebecca might be on the other side of the door. God, he hoped she was and prayed she wasn’t. He felt like a teenager again, scared as hell of talking to the prettiest girl and bullheaded enough to try, knowing that if he didn’t, somebody else would get to her first.
Disappointment lodged in his gut as the door opened to a Rebecca-less office. Pete set about gathering up his things, clearly anxious for his weekend to begin, and Will propped himself against the desk they’d designated for him to use while he worked there, if you could even call it a desk. Three of the drawers were jammed shut and the surface looked like it’d been through a war and came out on the losing side.
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?
