Another school year begins.  But now Ryan is in high school.  It starts out as he thought it would.  The seniors picking on the freshmen.  Ryan uses his quick wit and winning smile to deflect the mean comments.  He's always had a way about him that makes you want to like him -- even when you don't want to.  Same old same old.  But History class looks promising when the new teacher walks in.  She's not your average middle aged teacher in sensible shoes.  Ms. Settles is gorgeous.  She has jet black hair and big blue eyes. Her body is perfect and so is the sweater dress that clings to every curve.  And those stilletoes sure aren't sensible.  Ryan is in love. Or is it lust?  Just like all the other boys.  But Ms. Settles starts to treat Ryan special. And finds ways for them to be alone.  What is going on here?
