A Hero is Born
With every news article, my imagination took flight, and the image of my hero, in my new release, Shoo-fly Pie by Selah, came to life. Big Em is pragmatic, trustworthy with a keen sense of time, and of course, handsome. He brags that he has never been held up "successfully."
Here's an excerpt from my new release:
Selah unfolded the newspaper clipping with the caption: ‘Driver Continues Winning Streak. Never Been Held up Successfully.’ Such a dangerous vocation and far away from my ideal husband of an easy-going and chubby baker.”
Mrs. Beasley reached for the clipping and clucked her tongue. “Count your blessings, dear. What a handsome young man. He reminds me a bit of those dime novels everyone reads spinning tales about the characters settling the west.”
“The height and stature should be enough to make anyone think twice about holding up his stage. Not to mention his rifle and the gun belt resting on his hip.” A flush rose from Selah’s neck to her cheeks. “Bethany says he is handsome with blue eyes and blond hair. Looking at this photo, I can’t decide if he looks more like an outlaw or Goldilocks.”
“Oh, stop.” Mrs. Beasley removed her glasses from a chain around her neck and positioned them on her nose. Leaning closer, she said, “Reminds me a bit of General Custer. It ought to be illegal for a man to be that pretty. The injustice of it, to think of the years I spent sleeping with my hair rolled in papers to force a tiny bit of curl.”
Can this mail-order bride handle the diversity that comes with her husband’s dangerous vocation? Together will they blend their opposing desires to create a recipe for love?
