Greetings, my friends! Happy March to you! I made a goal with myself that March would be my month to really take charge of my life and make some magic happen. That includes writing a whole lot more. So here’s some of the fruits of my labour–another snippet from Learning to Love!
We’re skipping ahead to a scene that occurs a few weeks into Will’s practicum at Rebecca’s school. I got the feeling you all needed a little more Will/Rebecca chemistry, so hopefully this will suffice. 😉
The heavy thump, thump, thump of the bass echoed from the speakers into the empty hallway. As soon as the gymnasium door closed behind her, she took a shaky breath, trying to get her heart beating again to a rhythm resembling the popular song’s. Space. She needed space. Away from him. She couldn’t breathe when he stood so close to her, giving her what she asked for…and not even close to what she wanted. The one thing she couldn’t have.
It wasn’t supposed to be this hard. She’d laid the ground rules. She’d made things crystal-fricking-clear that there were strict lines that couldn’t be crossed, and those lines became blurrier with each passing day.
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?

We’re just a couple weeks away from March Break here in Canuckland, and I can’t wait to spend time with the fam-jam and hang with some of my best galpals. Hope you march into this new month with determination! Write hard, rest when you need to, and do the things that make you happy. Till next week, my darlings! xo
