Today, I’m posting a snippet from A Wife By Christmas. This novella won third place for Best Historical Novella in the Romance Through The Ages Contest (RTTA); placed in the OK IDA contest, and was TRR Top pick.
Ellie Henderson from A Run For Love, is a high school teacher in 1907, and Max Colbert is her principal. She’s a suffragette, and a very independent, although trouble does seem to follow her wherever she goes. Max is as strait laced as they come. His goal is to get her married off, so she will quit teaching and leave him in peace. In this scene, Ellie is once again in trouble, with Max reluctantly to the rescue.
“Shh, I said, stop looking up my skirts.”
“I’m not looking up your skirts.”
“Yes, you are, I’m hanging here in my skirts, and you’re looking up at me.”
“I have to look up if I’m going to catch you.”
“Close your eyes.”
“Don’t be ridiculous, if I close my eyes, I’ll miss catching you.”
