With a change in seasons looming ever closer, the #1lineWed theme is **SEASON**. And, I’m in the middle of line edits for the next Red Dirt book coming in February from Harlequin Desire so I thought I throw in a little tease from that book. Since the heroine is a storm chaser, she’s all about the seasons because each one brings it’s own weather. I think this scene is fairly self-explanatory. 😉
There was always calm before the storm. They’d been getting along so well, but then again, they’d had a mild spring, Until now. Severe weather was out there waiting and Cooper realized he’d probably just stepped in a big ol’ pile of cow patties when he decreed that she was not going to be chasing tornadoes this year.
“You have no right to tell me what I can and cannot do, Cooper Tate.” Britt was spitting mad. “It’s spring. Storm season. My job is to be out there—” She swept her arm in a wide arc indicating…the world. “This is what I do.”
She cupped her palms on both sides of her belly. “Gee. Brilliant deduction. What was your first clue, Sherlock?”
“Do not go there, Cooper. Don’t get all conciliatory and condescending. I’m perfectly healthy and thus capable of doing my job. My doctor has cleared me to work. The station has cleared me.”
He inhaled to argue again but she cut him off. “I sit in my truck. I drive my truck. I look at instrument readings. I’d say I take pictures but that’s what Leo is for. He’ll be with me. He’s perfectly capable of driving too. It’s just that trying to work the cameras and the communications equipment is better done when not driving. I’m not due until June. This is April. Heck, the doctor said I could work right up to the point my water breaks.”
And you can guess how Cooper reacted to that. 😆 So, writers–any seasonal words you want to share so we can enjoy them? Readers, what’s your favorite season?
