“Still looking for that interview?”
“Not from you, cowboy.” She didn’t even bother to turn and face him.
“Ugh! You wound me.” He clapped a hand to his chest, just above his heart.
Derek wasn’t sure if she’d known it was him or didn’t care who it was. He caught a whiff of vanilla and peaches and inhaled deeply, feeling a jolt of desire strike him in the gut. Her deep red hair shone like fire from under the new, black Stetson and his fingers itched to see if those tresses were as soft as they appeared. She glanced over her shoulder, pinning him with an irritated glance as he grinned down at her.
“I highly doubt that. I’m sure there are plenty of other women around here for you to harass.” She turned back to the animals milling in the large pen behind the chutes.
“Look, maybe we got off on the wrong foot.” He looked down at the back of her head and wondered again if flirting with her wasn’t a huge mistake. “I get the feeling you think I’m a jerk.”
“Oh, I don’t think you’re a jerk,” she interrupted, glancing backward at him. He arched his brows in surprise. “I know you’re a jerk.” He laughed as she shoved his arm from the fence so she could pass, causing him to stumble forward.
“Now if you don’t mind, I have a job to do and an interview with Mike Findley.” She shot him a coy smile. “I guess your boss sees an interview with me as good publicity after all. Maybe that’s why he’s the owner and you’re, well, you.”
With a twirl, she headed back toward her news van. The waves of her red hair swayed at her waist, making her back seem ablaze and he felt his stomach tighten, wondering how it was possible the he still smelled vanilla and peaches over the pungent scent of cattle and dust.
Yep, she’s trouble with a capital T.
