When Robbi  Bennett, special education teacher extraordinaire, decided to move from New York to California, it was for reasons beyond trading snowstorms for sunshine and surfing. Following the tragic death of her parents, and several doomed relationships, she craved a fresh start; an opportunity to reinvent herself. 

Tyler D’Angelo, bad-boy biker and self-proclaimed man-whore, equates love with weakness. For decades, he has kept his heart on lockdown, but meeting Robbi turns his solitary life inside out as they are inexplicably drawn to each other. Can love be strong enough to overcome a lifetime of fear?

(This story features two hearing impaired characters. The story also involves information related to deafness, deaf education, and American Sign Language.)


   

 

“We can go as slowly as you want; take our time and get to know each other first, as friends. What do you think, Tyler?” His cobalt eyes searched her face. “Friends with benefits?” His sexy smirk was accompanied by a playful wink. Shaking her head vehemently, Robbi sighed. “No, Tyler. I won’t do that; no one-night stands either.”

He whispered softly. “I know, Robbi. I don’t want that with you, either. Okay, we’ll take it slow, but what if I request one benefit, just a tiny one?” His sapphire eyes were sparkling as his thumb caressed her glistening, pink bottom lip. “If I don’t have access to your beautiful mouth, if I can’t kiss you — I. Will. Not. Survive.”





Teri McGill grew up in Queens, New York and moved to warm and sunny Los Angeles in 1994, immediately following the Northridge earthquake. She taught Mathematics to deaf high school students for thirty years, which explains some of the recurring themes in her stories. When she is not at the computer, either writing or beta reading/proofreading, she enjoys working out, golf, mosaics, Math tutoring, and watching sports.
