"An exceptional writer with a flair for humor." --Romance Reviews Today
Can a single mom find happiness on a blind date--or at least dinner with a male who can cut up his own food? Cassie and Mike believe they're "in like" not "in love." But when down-on-his-luck Mike is evicted, Cassie takes him into her home. Mike starts fixing everything from window screens to her two boys' broken hearts. Will Cassie let him fix hers?
Excerpt set up: Mike tries to stop Cassie from going on a date with another man. He finds her ironing her dress for the evening and does his best to convince her to stay home--with him.
Cassie felt warm all over. The room seemed to be swaying beneath her feet. She coughed to clear her suddenly dry throat. “Yeah, it’s a nice robe.” The room began to spin as she breathed in deeply the masculine scent of him. “I don’t wear it around much since it has the tendency to slide off me at the most inconvenient times.”
Mike’s lips lightly brushed against her earlobe. “Show me,” he whispered.
Cassie’s knees turned to liquid. She knew she had to get a grip on herself, turn the conversation around somehow. . . But she couldn’t. A moment later the acrid smell of burning cloth brought her back to reality. “Mike?”
He nuzzled her earlobe again. “Hmm, yes?”
She opened one eye slowly. “I think we’ve ruined my dress.”
“I’ll get you a new one.” He took the iron from her and yanked the plug from the wall.
“What’ll I wear tonight then?” she moaned.
He put the iron down and slowly turned her to face him. “Remember? I like what you’ve got on now.” Pulling her closer, he gently kissed her lips.
