The Proposition-by JoAnne Myers

Hello and welcome to JoAnne's Blog. For this weeks Paranormal Love Wednesday Blog Hop, I have chosen "The Proposition", one tale in my fantasy anthology, "Loves Myths and Monsters." Enjoy.

Blurb: The rough and ready cowboy John Queenie gets the shock of his life, when the ad to break a “wild filly” turns out to be a fiery Quaker girl named Tess. This is a story proving love conquers all.
Excerpt: The men left me staring at my proposition like a kid at Christmas. What was it about this scarlet-haired wench that provoked such infatuation in young men, but anger and frustration in the elders? I had exactly ten months to discover the secret. I had never felt this way about any woman before. Yes, I had girlfriends in Texas, but they were friends. This feeling I felt was new, strange, and exhilarating. I wished to taste her fire and brushed back sweat beads.
Continuing to watch carefully, I now studied each and every person. All the other women were dressed the same, in light blue dresses, their long hair hidden under white bonnets. The single men were clean-shaven like Henry, while the married men sported full beards like Thaddeus and Joshua.
Living in Texas I was used to cowboys, farmers and Indians, but had never met a Quaker. These peculiar people living in such a passive community were above my present understanding, but I hoped it would be revealed soon.
The ad was adamant in that the position would last only twelve months from acceptance, and I answered the ad two months ago. My time was clearly running out.
