Another six from my contemporary romance, ‘Changing the Future’.
Paul was stunned to see Lisa at Hillside College. It was the last place he’d expected to meet her again. They’d had a brief and curt conversation when they’d first met earlier in the day. At the end of the afternoon, he goes to see her. This is from his POV and he speaks first.
“We need to talk.”
He couldn’t tell whether the expression in her dark eyes was uncertain or icy cold. “Yes, I didn’t know you were at Hillside, otherwise…”
Now there was no mistaking her hostile glare. “Otherwise you wouldn’t have come a million miles near here?”
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.
'Changing the Future' is available at $3.99 on Amazon
The latest review said:
“I really liked both these characters. Assumptions, pride, and hurt feelings ruined their wonderful relationship five years ago. But that underlying love they felt for each other then hasn't disappeared. It's just been buried deep under hurt feelings. But they're both adults and professionals and work really hard to maintain a decent relationship at school...but that quickly morphs into something more for them. That chemistry is still there.”
