“I don’t view women that way. Mostly, I figure that if a man thinks that a woman who can whip up a good meal, birth and raise decent children, and keep him in check is ‘weak,’ then he doesn’t deserve her.”
Her heart thrummed happily and she smiled, thinking that this man had somehow become even more attractive. “You truly believe that?”
“You doubt me?”
She let out a little sigh of contentment. Noticing a cocklebur in Cry Baby’s mane, she removed her gloves and worked it loose from the long, white hair. “You’re an interesting man, Dalton Moon. In fact, you’re nothing like I thought you’d be.” She tossed aside the offending bur.
“What did you imagine I’d be like?” He unbuttoned his coat and leaned a forearm on his saddle horn.
“A strutting, preening, cold-hearted, trigger-happy bore.”
His brows shot up and a startled laugh erupted from his chest. “All that, huh?”
“It is your reputation,” she informed him, archly as she tucked her gloves under her coat’s belt. “You must know that. If you aren’t in the habit of drawing your gun and shooting at people, then how did you acquire it?”
“Through wagging tongues and shameless liars,” he answered in a contemptuous tone. “I am fast on the draw. I don’t deny that. But I’m not eager to pull the trigger. I will, mind you, in defense of my life or someone else’s.”
