A widow is torn between loyalty to her dead husband and passion for his hated rival. After a fairy-tale marriage, Paula Wincott has lost her husband, Sam, noted researcher and chemistry professor at the University of Colorado to a sudden heart attack. She attributes his death to his bitterness and despair after being displaced in the department by a younger rival, Boyd Mackenzie.
Although they have never met, Paula holds Boyd in contempt, blaming him for her widowhood. Lonely and rudderless, she signs up for a chemistry class, but when she finds herself in Boyd's class, her well-ordered world shatters as passion flares between them, overwhelming her senses and threatening her loyalty to a dead man.
Paula has lost her husband and she has set in motion some things she is changing in her life. When Paula decides to finish her degree she signs up for a chemistry class, when the teacher turns out to be her husband’s enemy Boyd Mackenzie she with a clear heart cannot continue to take his class.
But, when Paula is forced to interact with Boyd can she handle the feelings that arise whenever he is around?
Boyd can't believe he could have ever done anything wrong to make Paula dislike him so. But, when they are asked to work together on her late husband’s research can he make her see that what they have is worth fighting for?
Sharon Noble did and amazing job with the struggle that Paula faces as a widow determined to protect her husband’s name and the reality of moving on with her new life and maybe even love. This story was such an emotion filled story, and made you feel all the emotions between Boyd and Paula.
You will love this sweet heart felt and truly wonderful story, it is a must read.
