Book: Autumn Desire by Sharon Noble

Sharon Nobleabout this book: Autumn Desire was inspired by my mother's return to college after I completed my M.A. at the University of Colorado. She not only made the Dean's List, she had a series of adventures, including a new romance. The result was Paula Wincott, who decides to return to school after the death of her much older, chemistry professor husband. His sudden, unexpected heart attack was prompted by the constant stress and frustation of competing with a younger, more personable, and highly successful professor in the department, Boyd Mackenzie. Paula has never met the wunderkind, but she blames him for her husband's death, and she hates him sight unseen. Of course he turns out to be her professor when she signs up for a chemistry course, and the sparks fly.
The title fell into place quite readily. The school year begins in autumn, the book begins in autumn, and romantic\sexual desire is full blown in the autumn of life, richer and fuller than in our younger years. I wanted women in their middle years to know that love, romance, and sexuality are at their peak in these autumn years. But I also hope women of all ages will relate to Paula and her struggle to reinvent herself after the death of her husband.
The book practically wrote itself while I watched the movie that played in my head. Interaction between Paula and Boyd worked its magic before my eyes, and I just typed what they said and what they did. Then there was Lottie, my favorite character -- wise, compassionate Lottie, who gives Paula tea and sympathy -- and some sound advice. I hope readers enjoy my characters as much as I do. Each one has a distinct personality and each plays an essential role in the developing romance.
The love scenes are explicit and heated, just as in real life, and Boyd is not only wise but also handsome, extraordinarily sexy, and determined to win the woman he loves.
