March 12--MY DAY!!--The Romance Review Anniversary

Welcome to the Romance Review first anniversary party!

Part of the hop is a Q&A. My question is from "Man Theory," a story in my collection, Man Theory and Other Stories: In "Man Theory," how tall is the hero, Ethan?

Here's the excerpt:

"I have a theory about love.”

Ethan's statement knocked me from the proverbial mountain top. Eyeing him, I clapped my hand across my mouth to stifle a giggle.

From Day One at our new jobs at Prime Designs, Ethan and I had forged a friendship. I was the artsy-heartsy, emotional gal. Him--the technical, by-the-book pal. We ate an occasional dinner, watched a movie, whatever. Traded small gifts like coffee, a magazine, music. However, Ethan had never made an overture toward me.

Translated: Nothing intimate.

I'd said to myself, "Rats."

For work, we'd traveled to Colorado Springs to attend a workshop on web design innovations. After check-in, I'd joined him at the bridge crossing the lake to decide about lunch before the meetings commenced.

My six-one geek wearing rimless glasses, leaned against the railing, and stared into the sparkling blue waters of the high mountain lake, and the feathered fowl paddling by.

Have his feelings changed? I asked in disbelief, "R-really? A theory...about love?"

Is Ethan:

A. 6'4"

B. 5'2"

C. 6'1"

D. 5'10"

Be sure to post your answer in the comment section with your EMAIL address. I'll draw from the correct ones and notify the winner.

Thank you for visiting me at Handbags, Books...Whatever and continue on to visit other blogs in the TRR Anniversary event. Good luck!
