Winner of the best Chick Lit/Women’s Lit category in the 2015 eFestival of Words
Intrigue, scandal, suspense, and romance peppered with humour tell how one man’s influence on a school of wayward girls and their teachers changes each of their lives in ways none of them would imagine – and eventually his own.
Adam Wild is still recovering from the loss of his wife and two young children in a car crash when he is offered the position of head teacher at St Mary’s Academy for Girls in England. The governing board feels that his background as an officer in the US Navy makes him well suited to restore some needed discipline, but some of the all-female teaching staff disagree.
Jenna feels the position should have been hers and undermines his attempts to reform the troubled school. Barbara (Babs) sees him as a romantic challenge, but Lisa believes she knows where his heart truly lies.
His strict new rules set him on a collision course with the sullen students who seek to manipulate or embarrass him in ways only girls can.
As he struggles to set the right tone with teachers and students, accomplish what the board has set as his goals and plan his own future, his presence acts as a catalyst that changes relationships and threatens to pull dark secrets and scandals into the light… And then Nicole, his late wife’s kid sister returns from Africa – and she is hiding secrets of her own…
Lust shouts. Love whispers. Only the heart knows the difference.
