Howdy, peeps! How’s everything? For anyone who missed last week’s snippet, I’ve switched things up a bit and turned my focus to a pair of secondary characters in Learning to Love who eventually, begrudgingly, get their very own happily ever after, too. 😀 Read on for more from Hannah and “Dog Leash Dude”!
Continuing from where we left off…
“Muffy is extremely well-behaved. I had her on the leash for most of the walk anyway, and…I mean, not that it’s any of your business, but—”
“Is that a retractable leash?”
“Yes,” she said, crossing her arms. “Why?”
“You’re almost better off not using it, then”
“Use a leash, don’t use a leash. I’m getting a lot of mixed messages here. You’re talking to a woman who owns an entire store devoted to dogs. I think I know a thing or two about—”
***End of WWW post, but carry on to finish this sequence.***
“Dogs wander too far on retractable leashes. They might get caught in traffic or make unwanted contact with other dogs. The cord can break or snap back and injure the person carrying it…”
Hannah faked a yawn as he prattled on about leashes like he’d invented the damn things. But when she tuned him out, her other senses betrayed her and focused in on the rest of him. All the parts that weren’t talking. And they were kinda nice parts. Thick waves of chestnut hair stirred in the morning breeze. Dark-rimmed glasses framed brown eyes that gleamed with a fervor she found both disturbing and oddly spellbinding. He wore a fitted T-shirt that clung to his torso in all the right places, and his long legs were encased in work-worn denim that made her wonder just what kind of work this man did, because he had a sexy Clark Kent vibe going on—not that she’d ever tell him.
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 roughly about two weeks away from finishing this bad boy book o’ mine, my friends! I honestly can’t believe it, but it goes to show how quickly you can make a book when you get in the habit of writing every day. I’m so grateful that I’ve had the extra time to do that. Wishing you all a fantastic week ahead! Write, write like the wind! 🙂
