The Mason Dixon Line, Contemp Romance Snippet, April 14

wewriwa_button

Happy Sunday, everyone! Here’s another snippet from the contemporary romance I’m currently revising, The Mason Dixon Line. H/h are staying in a remote cabin together for a week to get some work done on a children’s book they’re collaborating on. Our hero, Mason, has just broken the news to Carolyn that the cabin has no cable. She didn’t take it well. Mason speaks first:

“You sounded pretty darn upset at the thought of doing without TV. Let me guess. You watch all the nature shows. PBS, that kind of thing?”
His tone made it clear how likely he found that possibility. “Very funny. I’m not some airhead, you know.” How many times in her life had she said that? About a million. Somehow, it seemed that if you had to go around telling people you weren’t an airhead, you’d already lost the battle.
