Set up: This snippet is taken from my WIP. It's book two in the Shapeling Trilogy that tells Fawn's story. Fawn is a character introduced in Book One. With a name like Fawn Woods, how could I not tell her story. In this scene, Wade Spencer is transporting his new housekeeper and caretaker for his child to his ranch. He had expected the agency to send a matronly type. Fawn looks anything but matronly.
Wade spit out the words, "I thought you probably wouldn't have the stamina to care for Zoe and run a household. You're kinda…small." He felt his face turn pink. He'd wanted to say, You're gorgeous, so what the hell are you doing in a cow town instead of posing before a Hollywood camera?
She replied, "So size matters?"
Wade almost drove the truck off the road. He jerked the wheel back and glanced in the rear view mirror at a rising dust cloud. He sneaked a glance at the woman; was she being facetious?
Thank you reading my snippet. "Big Hug" of appreciation!
