For book/ebook authors, publishers, & self-publishers
Ronald Lewis Weaver, Senior Producer of popular daytime soap opera, The Bold and the Beautiful, knows a few things about forbidden romances and how to make a plot interesting with twists and turns. His first book, Soul Mate, is the story of a forbidden love attraction between a student and teacher and of mutual dreams and interests that convince the two that they truly are soul mates and destined for a future together.
Claudia de la Rosa is a Latino high school English teacher, thrust into the glamorous world of the Beverly Hills school system. When Claudia meets student, Lance Van Arden for the first time, she doesn't understand the odd connection she feels toward him, but she soon discovers that he feels the same way.
Lance's writing talents are obvious to Claudia and she realizes that he could become a published author if he just had someone to mentor him along the way. She becomes the mentor he needs, and as they spend more time together, they try to deny the mutual attraction that would be so wrong according to the rules set by society.
Eventually, neither can refute that they are, indeed, soul mates - and, amid whispers and accusations, they stick to feelings that their relationship has some greater purpose. Another student, Marco Cerasuolo, enters the drama, bringing a twist to the story with his psychic powers and spirit guides named Daniel and The Bear.
The predicament of student and teacher romances has been in the news quite a bit lately, and Weaver's novel, Soul Mate, explores the inner mindset of two people when they're fighting a society that frowns on this type of romance. Claudia and Lance must deal with judgmental and hostile people who are out to break up this pairing at all costs.
If their relationship is to succeed, they must find their own peace in a world full of turmoil. As a couple, they know it's going to be difficult beyond measure. Apart, it would be hell, so they must find a way to rise above the fray and live their lives as a couple despite being told that their relationship is an abomination.
Although their relationship is erotic, Claudia and Lance look beyond their physical attraction to each other and attempt to find a purpose in their union. That purpose is made apparent when they discover a connection on another plane of existence with the help of their friend and psychic leader, Marco.
The struggle of these two soul mates is poignant and inspirational. Soul Mate, written by a master of romantic plots - Ronald Weaver - will delight readers of romantic fiction, inspirational books and those who have psychic and spiritual interests.
