Cassianna Baxter leaves behind a glamorous teaching career in Italy to return to her alma mater in the majestic Virginia countryside, The Lewiston Academy for Girls. But this time she returns to her old boarding school not as a student, but as the Deputy Headmistress.
No sooner does she arrive at the Academy than she walks smack into sexy Lawrence Taylor, her first love and ex lover. Now he’s the Director of the Equestrian Center and Chairman of the Board and they will be working side by side. Their attraction is intense and undeniable, sparks fly when they succumb to torrid temptation.
Twelve years prior, Cassianna had stayed on at the Academy after graduation to pursue her dream of making the Equestrian Olympic Team with Lawrence as her trainer, but he was much more than that. Their love sizzled until he broke her heart when he left her with no explanation. She abandoned her riding dreams and left the Academy with no plans to ever return.
When the two lovers are reunited at the Academy, they discover their attraction is unrelenting and sex even hotter than before. Conflicted by her deep sexual desire for him burned by their painful past, Cassianna convinces herself to give into their passion. Just once. No strings attached. But the sex is way too good to walk away from but she cannot get over the fact that Lawrence left her years ago and she struggles to protect her heart at all costs.
He’s been looking for her ever since he was forced to leave her and now that she is back at the Academy--- he must win her back. And not just in his bed.
Cassianna followed her like a zombie.
