COLLISION OF THE HEART
Mia Roper isn’t a typical nineteenth-century woman. Refusing to pass up the hard-won opportunity to prove herself as a journalist, she left Hillsdale, Michigan, hoping in vain that Ayden Goswell would follow her to Boston.
When the train bringing her back for her first major story crashes in a snowstorm outside town, Mia is stranded. Not even the survival of a fellow passenger, a toddler, can ease her heart’s sudden ache at seeing Ayden, now a history professor at the local college, courting someone else.
Ayden’s never gotten over the fact that the most fascinating woman he ever met chose her career over marriage…and he let her go. But marrying the department director’s daughter could at least guarantee him a permanent job. It’s a satisfactory arrangement, yet his kind, pretty bride-to-be has one simple flaw: she’s not Mia.
As soon as the trains are running, Mia will be leaving again, unless she and Ayden can reconcile ambition and love—and take a leap of faith together.
I never wanted to knock two heads together more in my life. LOL Don't you just love frustrating characters? Mia and Ayden are at polar opposite ends of a critical issue and neither will budge. And the thing is, I totally got both sides and I didn't know what the right outcome should be. But it sure was fun watching them butt heads while secretly yearning to rekindle their romance. Love the tension -- the sense of desperation as they both struggle to merge the past and the present. Delicious, page-turning frenzy kind of stuff. And some of the best barbed comments between the covers of a book! Add in an intriguing mystery and a spark of danger and you get an incredibly captivating read.
Please note: This book was originally published as The Professor's Heart by Heartsong Presents -- a book club selection of Barbour Publishing. Since it wasn't available to the general public, the author has republished it as Collision of the Heart which is the perfect descriptor for this story.
