Happy May days to you, my friends! Hope you’re all doing well. I’ll be sharing another excerpt from Learning to Love, so get ready to dive back into the dramatics taking place at Kendal High! 😀
Continuing from where we left off…
He nodded. Opened his mouth to say something, then snapped it shut again. With a second, more resigned, nod, he shuffled his feet in the direction of the gym.
Rebecca watched him walk away, pressing her fingers to her still-tingling lips. That’s when the bastard decided to look back at her. She yanked her hand away, a fraction too late, because the smile on his face could have lit up an entire city in a blackout. She rolled her eyes and shooed him away. “Go.”
His smile didn’t dim in the slightest as he saluted her order, then finally rounded the corner.
Rebecca counted to five, partly to make sure he wasn’t going to make a surprise reappearance, but mostly to shake off the lingering effects of that deadly mouth of his.
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?

Well, today’s the day! We’re celebrating Dad’s 70th with a social distancing birthday party complete with a cake baked by yours truly, pizza, party hats, balloons, and a bonfire! I’ll let you know how I do baking my first cake, but I’m sure the ten thousand sprinkles I bought will hide any hideous disfigurements. 😀 Have a wonderful week and I’ll see you next Sunday! xo
