Autumn desire
Noble, Sharon
Adult Fiction NOBLE

Comments  Summary

Summary: Paula Wincott has lost her husband, Sam, noted researcher and chemistry professor at the University of Colorado. She attributes his sudden heart attack to his bitterness and despair at being displaced by a younger researcher, Boyd Mackenzie. Paula has never met this wunderkind, but she holds him in contempt and blames him for her widowhood. Despite being eighteen years younger than Sam, Paula was devoted to her husband, who was the center of her life. Finding herself lonely and rudderless, she decides to take a couple of courses at the university and finds herself in a chemistry class taught by Boyd Mackenzie, who mistakes her for Sam's daughter. Paula is outraged, determined to ignore him in class and avoid him elsewhere. However, Sam's research lab is in need of funding to continue his work in conductive polymers, and Boyd is widely respected for his skill in acquiring funding. The chairman of the department, Ed King, unaware of Paula's feelings, coerces them into working together, citing loyalty to Sam and the furtherance of his work. How could Paula know that passion would flare between them and threaten her loyalty to her dead husband. Debut novelist Sharon Noble and her family reside in Los Angeles, California.
