“I’m too big and too clumsy.”

“I think you’re perfect,” she answered honestly.

“I’ll hurt you.”

“No, you won’t.”

“I’ll crush you—”

“Good.”

He barked a sharp laugh and shook his head, turning away enough to avoid looking directly at her as he said, “It’s been years, I’m practically a virgin.”

That not-so-little admission tripped the trigger on her smile. “Just how I like ‘em.”

Ogling Miss October

After five years as a single dad, Warren Mueller can spout the reasons why purple is ‘so much cooler’ than pink, wield a fairly competent glue gun, and fumble his way to a decent set of pig-tails. The only thing he hasn’t figured out is how a big, clumsy farm boy like him caught the attention of an exotic beauty like Susie Chen.

A tiny Asian-American cursed with more brain that brawn, Susie has always been attracted to big, burly corn-fed men who drive pick-up trucks and spend their weekends fishing, hunting, and paddling canoes.

She likes Warren Mueller, not that she could ever have him. The protective barrier the town keeps around its young widower and his little girl that seems impenetrable…until the night of the St. Blaise Elementary Fall Festival.

If a picture says a thousand words, a single snapshot of Warren speaks volumes to Susie. He wants her as much as she wants him, and if he isn’t a big enough man to admit it, she’ll just have to show him the way.

    Guhhhh, Warren. I adore that man. Such a big, beefy, burly, manly man. Susie is one lucky girl. Another delicious excerpt, Maggie!

    I love books where the big, burly hero has to do things that aren’t so big and burly. Like the glue gun and knowing all about pinks and purples. It just proves one thing to me…he loves his daughter…and that’s wonderful! Thanks for sharing a wonderful snippet about his turn. This is going to my TBR pile for sure!
