Thought I'd put up a snippet from my latest romance. Harmony realizes that Brody is more bark than bite when he helps his brother, Ian, rescue a duck that's gotten frozen in the ice on the lake. Hope you like it!
Brody’s attention was drawn to something outside the back windows. His brows furrowed in a worried frown. He narrowed his eyes, staring at the lake. “Is that one of your ducks?” he asked Ian.
Ian finished the last bite of his sandwich and followed Brody’s gaze. His expression took on a worried look, too. “Is she stuck in the ice?” he asked Brody.
Brody stood to go see her better. “She’s struggling, but can’t get out.”
A feather could have knocked Harmony over when Brody disappeared to get his winter coat. Ian followed him. She looked at Paula. “Are they going to rescue a duck?”
“Not just any duck,” Paula told her. “Ian fed it all summer and fall.”
Brody glared as he passed Harmony. “You can’t just leave a poor animal trapped in ice to die, whether you fed it or not.”
The two men tramped out the back door and headed to the lake. Harmony turned to Paula. “How do you unstick a duck?"
