Stay, Serendipity, Stay by Gabriella Lucas

(about this author)

  • Serendipity Matthews, a retired English professor turned successful romance writer, isn't looking for love. Twice divorced, she's distrustful of men in general. But love practically knocks her over the head when she meets retired history teacher Sam Emerson. Their friendship starts out hot, but seems to stall as Sam keeps her at arm's length. Is he hiding something?

    When Serendipity walks into Sam's life, it's a stroke of luck he can't ignore. What starts out as a fortunate encounter turns serious, though, when he realizes Serendipity is the kind of woman who could steal his heart. But what happens when she finds out the real reason he pursued her?

    When a friend calls Sam's motives into question, Serendipity is mortified. Was his interest in her a fraud? Sam never planned to fall in love, but now he has to figure out what he wants more: success or Serendipity.

    Excerpt:

    “Then have dinner with me in three days and we’ll celebrate the accomplishment of a finished book.”

    I grabbed my coat from the back of my stool, stuck my hand in my pocket and jingled my keys. “I’m leaving now,” I told him and started toward the door. Then, feeling impish, I added. “But I’ll think about it if you can name all of Emerson’s essays in his first series.”

    I was feeling almost as smug as I did after I beat my daughter and her husband at Trivial Pursuit. I knew he’d never get this right. He waited until I was about four steps from the door before calling out, “History, Self-Reliance, Compensation, Spiritual Laws, Love, Friendship, Prudence, Heroism, The Over-Soul, Circles, Intellect.” Astonished, I turned around to face him. “Okay, you had me at The Over-Soul. Thursday. Eight o’clock. I’ll meet you at—where is it you’re taking me to dinner again?”
