Sunday Snippet

Welcome to Snippet Sunday. My excerpt today is from Her Kind of Man. In this excerpt, my heroine Kara and her sister Katie are talking about a man they went to school with. He always had a crush on Kara, but from the sound of it, Kara never thought he was anything special. Surprisingly, Ross turns out to be exactly her kind of man.

EXCERPT:

“I bet he didn’t go because you were going with someone else. Ross always reminded me of a devoted, old spaniel. He adored the ground you walked on, and I think he still does.”

Kara chuckled when she remembered Ross’s lovesick behavior. “That’s a pretty good description. Every time I spoke to him I expected him to duck his head and blush. One word from me and he was too tongue-tied to put two syllables together.”
 
BLURB:
Is it possible she’s finally found Her Kind of Man?

Ross Williams has been in love with Kara Cochrane since they were kids so when Kara's fiancĂ© Brandon Miles cheats on her and calls off their wedding—Ross steps in to rescue the damsel in distress.
 
A heartbroken Kara just wants to get on with her life and hunky Ross provides her with a definite distraction—that is until she starts falling for him. Big time.

But a devastating family secret threatens to destroy everything that Kara holds dear—including her relationship with Ross.

So he went from Too Shy to Oh, My?

I love stories like this!

Ross seems to be the difficult type to handle, in the sense that he is too deep in it too fast. I wonder how it will turn out.

You've drawn some vulnerable characters and your blurb gave me the shivers. Well done.

Reminds me of my high school daze. I was a late bloomer.
Well done!

Sometimes the "aw shucks" guys are the best :-)

Ross sounds like a sweet guy. Sometimes the quiet ones will really surprise a gal. :)
