Taylor Valentine is a senior at Western Michigan University and is laser-focused on living a life that would honor the memory of her parents. When Dr. Stuart Morgan visits to give a four-week seminar on Civil War History, the former Marine is undeniably a draw for young Taylor. Stuart has his own rules regarding fraternizing with students—mainly that he doesn’t—that he’s unwilling to break, but he’s tempted to do so for the tantalizing Taylor. When death threats cause their paths to become entwined will Stuart compromise his rules or will Taylor turn to Joe, the hometown boy that has always loved her? “Their Rigid Rules” is the third book in the Chemical Attraction series and a prequel to the other novels.
