A holly, jolly hello to one and all! Happy Sunday! Here’s another snippet from Learning to Love to start your day off right! 🙂
Continuing from where we left off…
Will could sense there was more she wanted to say, but he didn’t press the issue. “When’s the last time you ate?”
Color rose high in her cheeks. “I didn’t get a chance to finish my lunch and had a really busy afternoon….” she trailed off as he stretched to his full height. “Where are you going?”
“Sit tight,” he said, “I’ll be right back.” He jogged halfway down the hall before he realized he didn’t have a key to get into the Phys. Ed. office. Turning back to her with a sheepish smile, he asked, “Could I borrow your key?”
She yanked on the lanyard hanging from her pocket and tossed a cluster of keys at him, smiling when he caught the jangling ball of metal. “It’s the one with the purple cover.”
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?

Two weeks from now, I’ll be on my Christmas holidays! I can’t believe it’s just around the corner, and I super can’t believe I’ve got my shopping done! That means I get to shop for myself now, right? Right! I might have my eye on a fancy pair of lime-green shoes that would look great in my stocking. Or ON my stockings. 😀 See you next week, my friends!
