With the Headmaster’s Approval by Jan Hurst-Nicholson
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Where to Get It:
The controversial appointment of a handsome widower and former US Naval Officer as head teacher of an English all girls’ school ignites sexual tension, rebellion, and the unearthing of dark secrets, and changes their lives in ways none of them could imagine.
Adam Wild arrives at St Mary’s Academy for Girls intent on restoring discipline to the once prestigious school. Not everyone is pleased. Jenna Murray believes the headship should have been hers and undermines his authority at every turn. They fight a forbidden sexual attraction – until a troubled girl makes a shocking allegation.
Then Nicole, his late wife’s kid sister returns from Africa with a startling request he’s unsure he can fulfil, forcing Adam to re-evaluate his feelings about love.
Lust shouts. Love whispers. Only the heart knows the difference.
What they’re saying about it:
“A most enjoyable, skilfully written story with thoroughly likeable characters about whom I cared.
There are many interwoven story lines that complement each other well. When it was suggested to me that this book is perhaps a romance, I was surprised. It has a romantic element yes, but there are so many themes, I’d find it hard to categorise.”
“A quick read with very real, interesting characters, I loved the plot. Light hearted, it took me back to my school days. Pity we never thought about what went on in the staff room in those days :) Lived the book.”
