Free-spirited Elizabeth Foster turned her back on her father’s photography business to pursue musical theater, but a career on the stage remains second to a career behind the camera. The possibility of a one-show contract means she’s a few weeks from unemployment forcing her home, and her dreams of pursuing professional photography reemerge. With photography and theater opportunities unfolding before her, Elizabeth faces her biggest challenge yet—listening to her heart.

Meanwhile, sought-after photographer Ryan Callahan has put his career on hold to help his sister’s family, but the promise of a bigger assignment could lure him away so he can begin building a family of his own. With professional opportunities and personal obligations pulling at him, Ryan faces his toughest challenge—balancing family, relationships, and work.

If given the choice, what dreams would develop for Elizabeth and Ryan? And will they learn to trust each other enough to focus on love?

Can You Really Find Love on the Job?

My husband and I met while working at a private high school. He taught math while coaching football and baseball. I taught chemistry and coached cross country and track.

We might never have talked outside of polite conversation at staff meetings, except for the fact we had a handful of matchmaking students in common. Have you ever been around hormonal teenagers especially near Valentine’s Day? They latched onto the idea that the single teachers at the school really should get married and brought up not-so-subtle hints about every other week.

A raised hand and an out-of-the-blue question. “Do you like football?”  followed by a chorus of ooo’s when I nodded. A paper valentine on my desk signed by “Mr. Fick” (as if he wouldn’t use his first name). His players gave him a membership to a Christian dating site and presented it along with a photocopied, enlargement of my yearbook mug-shot.

We might have avoided their blatantly-embarrassing attempts…except the next year our schedules collided and we found ourselves alone in the teacher’s lounge at the same time every day and manners dictated that we actually converse. But when we were both tagged as chaperones on an overnight trip, our fellow teachers got involved. “Did you notice what a gentleman he is?” Why yes, I did.

Let’s just say the rest is history. After a whirlwind keep-it-hidden-from-our-students courtship, he popped the question. We invited all of our students to the wedding and the seniors on the football team served as ushers. I left teaching behind once we were expecting our first child and have since done my supporting from the sidelines. But I still remember those semi-private lunches in the teacher’s lounge and even chaperoning the homecoming banquet while hiding the fact we were on a date too.

Of course, you can’t fall in love with someone you don’t spend time with, which is why the workplace is just one of several places couples meet. Proximity is certainly a factor. Not to mention that some types of jobs imply shared values, interests, and perhaps even the same skill sets. Being part of a team or company working toward a common goal creates a sense of unity that can spill over into a friendship and then a potential relationship. And if you happen to be surrounded by matchmaking coworkers (or “customers”), then everyone leaves with a great story to tell.

In my latest novel, Focus On Love, the heroine was previously burned after dating an intern in her father’s business and then again when a backstage romance at the dinner theater fizzled away. By the time Ryan walks into the theater, she’s not sure what to think of the handsome photographer. But once they start working together, this third time might just become her picture-perfect love story.

What about you? Have you ever dated (or married) someone you met at work? Do you know someone else who has? How did it work out?  — Candee
