After a very barbed conversation with Lisa, Paul asks whether there has to be war between them all the time. He then goes on:
“Maybe it would be better if we forgot about the past and treated each other simply as colleagues.”
Lisa opened her mouth to reply, closed it again, and stood up. “Yes, fine, and now, if you’ll excuse me, I really do have to leave.”
He fumed as he went out to his car. Damn it all, she’d treated him as if it was all his fault, when she was the one who’d refused to go to South America, and she was the one who’d cheated on him.
Blurb: Lisa Marshall is stunned when celebrated volcanologist Paul Hamilton comes back into her life at the college where she now teaches. Despite their acrimonious break-up several years earlier, they soon realise the magnetic attraction between them is stronger than ever. However, the past is still part of the present, not least when Paul discovers Lisa has a young son. They can’t change that past, but will it take a volcanic eruption to help them change the future?
