 Passionate History
by Libby Waterford

A contemporary erotic romance novella

The Inspiration Behind Passionate History

I wasn’t prepared for it the day it came. Save the date! the postcard screamed up at me in bold black letters. My college reunion. A decade had passed since I had walked the field in my cardinal red cap and gown. I tried not to feel like the years had passed by much too quickly, and immediately started imagining scenarios for reunited lovers, friends, professors and students, and how being thrust back together after the passage of years might stir things up.

The first idea I gleaned was about a young professor completely seduced by his favorite student, and how her return to campus after a five-year absence might shake up both of their worlds. Thus Aidan and Bree were born, and I loved getting to know them as their story took shape against the backdrop of a reunion and commencement weekend at a small New England liberal arts college, somewhat inspired by my own alma mater.

Well, I did it. I attended my ten-year reunion and survived. Besides the nostalgic joy of being back on a campus that I loved with all my heart, where I met my husband for the first time, it was thrilling to find out what exciting and unusual avenues life had taken my classmates down. Who knows--perhaps they’ll be fodder for future books!

Do you find class reunions exciting, terrifying, or dull?

Blurb:

On the eve of her college graduation, Bree Ross seduces her favorite art history professor. She doesn’t expect buttoned-up Professor Worthy to give her the best sex of her life, or anticipate that leaving him to start her post-college life would be so difficult. Their unforgettable encounter haunts her, and five years later, she finds herself back on campus for her college reunion—with a specific goal in mind. How hard could it be to convince her ex-professor to write her a letter of recommendation for graduate school?

Straight-laced Professor Aidan Worthy has adhered to his carefully-aligned morals his entire teaching career…until Bree Ross walks into his classroom. Guilt plagues him for his one transgression because that one amazing night has been seared onto his brain. When she waltzes back into his life after five years of silence, he’s not thrilled. But he can’t deny the illicit spark they once shared has not disappeared, and he worries he won’t be able to resist temptation a second time.

Over the course of the tumultuous reunion and commencement weekend at Weston University, rain, relatives, and rental cars force the two to confront their sizzling desire and burgeoning feelings. Is their passionate history enough to keep them together, or will it drive them apart?

Enjoy the following excerpt for Passionate History:

“Professor—Aidan,” she said, sounding embarrassed.
Good. “What are you doing?”
“I’m trying to find my rental car. I think I parked it somewhere around here, and I can’t exactly remember what it looks like.”
“Can’t you click the remote key? If it’s nearby the lights will go off when you unlock it.” There, his brain had produced a sensible suggestion, even as it occupied itself with cataloguing her scent, the tired smudges under her eyes, and the curve of her hips outlined by a flowy skirt.
“I would, except the only car left on the lot was some micro-budget sedan. I can’t remember the model.” She held her key out to him. “No remote entry.”
“Can you call the rental car company?”
“I tried. They’re closed.”
Aidan stood in the street, staring at her. Bree Ross. Former student. Former lover. It was unbelievably frustrating how much he still desired her. But perhaps this was the universe telling him he had a second chance to be a gentleman.
“Well, you can’t go around looking in every car on campus. You’ll get arrested. Come on, I can give you a ride.”
“Oh, no, thanks. I can walk.”
“It’s pitch black and about to rain. I’m not letting you walk anywhere alone tonight.”
“I can go to the green, to the dance. I can catch a ride with a friend.”
“Then I’ll walk you to the dance.”
“That’s all right—”
“Bree.” His voice was a warning. “Don’t be an idiot. Let me help you.”

Excerpt:

I feel his hand come across my collar bone and gently press against my neck and jaw, possessing me, forcing me to put my head back onto his shoulder as we continue to sway to the music. His erection is pressed hard against my backside and I can’t quite judge the size of it, but it is all I can think about until he whispers into my ear. “You’re a bad girl.” I feel a strong sense of authority in his voice and my knees weaken at the sexy raspiness of it. Strong, yet it’s sweet.


The song winds down and I’m so caught up in his words, and our dance, that it takes a minute to realize we’ve stopped moving and that his hands are missing from my body. Realizing that I’m standing there all alone, I turn around, trying desperately to see him, but I can’t, not over the crowd and I’m disappointed that he’s left. Then immediately I realize that I’ve just had this extremely intimate dance with a man and I have no idea who he is.
