At the age of twenty-six, with a failed marriage already behind her, Shelley Browning decides to go back to school and get her degree. But history is about to repeat itself -- ten years earlier, she shared an unforgettable kiss with Grant Chapman, her government teacher, and now she's his student again. Shelley finds him to be as brilliant as ever, and the chemistry between them unchanged. But the sacred law of the university prohibits the kind of relationship they are longing for. If they break it, they risk losing everything; if they don't, they risk never knowing what could be.
