About this Book

A full length romance novel ( 24 chapters ).

Twists and turns in a romance story set in a 1950s era.

High school days aren’t supposed to be like this as Jimmy Trenton encounters a subject not in the school curriculum. Carol is not a student and she’s married but gets on Jimmy’s lesson schedule anyway.

Two young people grapple with their emotions in a forbidden relationship in a small conservative town. Love, tenderness, and sometimes humor come together in this novel.

Both try to break free of this unlikely and forbidden attraction to each other and also must struggle with a blackmailer’s threats.

“Don't come any closer,” I said.

He laughed as I saw him reach down to his right side to a leather sheath attached to his belt and pull out a hunting dagger with a blade that must have been nine inches long. He pointed it at me delightfully in a menacing fashion. It could have easily ripped through the hide of any bear if the animal were foolish enough to attack this giant human who was now only a few feet away from me..........................
