Below is a snippet from my current work in progress with the working title "Avoiding the Badge." I hope you enjoy it!
“Ahem… He’s here.”
At her vet tech, Joanie’s statement, Doctor Rayna Michael’s looked up from the lab work report she was reviewing and furrowed her brow. “I’m sorry. He?”
Joanie leaned her hip against the counter and gave Rayna a level stare. “He as in the hottest client you have.” She shook her head when Rayna continued to stare at Joanie with what Rayna could only assume was a blank expression in her eyes, and continued. “Come on. He as in the cop who’s so freaking hot we could fry an egg on his abs. The same he who’s so totally into you, the rest of us are green with envy.”
Rayna rolled her eyes and set the report on the counter. Oh, she for sure knew exactly who Joanie was talking about, but no way was she going to let her vet tech know that. Yes, Derek Hansen was handsome—very handsome in fact. The kind of handsome every woman on the planet noticed, and if they didn’t they were likely dead, because yes, very handsome was true and an incredible understatement. She smothered the grin that attempted to tug at the corner of her lips. “I’m sorry, but you’re going to have to be a bit more specific.”
