"...the stories are so different I think that everybody will find something that they love out of this wonderful anthology." -Night Owl Romance Reviews
Chills struck Robyn Cattrall as she stepped onto the grounds of her alma mater. Memories good and bad blindsided her for several moments. She'd done a lot of soul-searching before accepting a post here as history professor.
But the burnished autumn leaves and chill in the air made her feel alive again. They brought the promise of soon-coming winter with its wonderland of glistening snow, something she'd missed living in south Florida for the past couple of decades.
She consoled herself that as a connoisseur of history, she had learned from past mistakes and knew better than to repeat them. Just because she was back at the scene of her first heartbreak didn't mean she was doomed to repeat it. She'd make sure she didn't. Forty-four now, she was a lot wiser than she'd been at twenty-two.
Funny, she felt young on a campus surrounded by twenty-year-olds, especially when a horde of students burst into the sunshine and several young studs eyed her appreciatively.
She did her best not to drool over what might be her future students, and tried hard to keep a pleasantly professional smile. But when she came face to face with the ghost of her first love, Phil Williams, her jaw dropped, her eyes widened and her heart stopped. Unabashedly, she stared.
What was he doing here?
Phil's glance slid over her without a hint of recognition, and he passed by without a falter in his step.
She hated herself, but she turned and stared at his retreating back as the sea of people parted around her, then swallowed him. How could he not turn to look at her? How could he forget? How could he look so damned good?
She gulped and licked her lips. When someone bumped her, she jolted awake. Embarrassed, she checked her campus map and hurried to her office.
Breathing hard, her legs sore from walking too fast in high heels, she sighed in relief when she reached Sobhol Hall, home of her new office. She smiled at her name etched on the door, then fumbled with her keys.
By now, the weight of her briefcase was killing her arm and she was happy to unload it on the barren desk. She sank onto the plush chair behind the secretary, rested her head on the high back and wondered if she had conjured a ghost.
Phil wouldn't be here. If he were, he'd look a lot older. That man hadn't been a day over thirty.
"Wishful thinking," she muttered.
Wishful? Did she really want to see the guy again? He was a cheat. He was married. Not that he'd told her that little fact until after she'd fallen head over heels, at which time he'd sworn his wife was divorcing him, that she was the bad guy.
She stared out the window, not really seeing the present. But she wouldn't let herself get sucked into such a disastrous past again, either. She wouldn't allow a married man with children to ruin her life or even keep her from sleeping one more night. She hadn't thought of him in years--well, not much lately--until this job offer came up.
Needing to talk, her heart racing, she called her best friend, Kim Zahn. "I saw him. I mean, it couldn't be him, but it looked just like him."
Kim laughed. "Whoa! Slow down. Breathe. Who's him?"
How many hims were there in her life? "Him! Phil him."
Silence ensued for several seconds, then, "Uh, I've been meaning to tell you..."
