Guest Post and Giveaway: I Have People by Taylor Dean
Taylor Dean lives in Texas and is the mother of four grown children. Upon finding herself with an empty nest, she began to write the stories that were always wandering around in her head, quickly finding that she had a passion for writing, specifically romance. Whether it’s paranormal, contemporary, or suspense-you’ll find all sub-genres of romance in her line-up.
The hero of I Have People is a true gentleman and in many ways the perfect man. He’s kind, soft-spoken, polite to a fault, and compassionate.
But he’s also somewhat self-effacing, making him very human and relatable. He has other faults, like he’s NEVER on time for anything and he can’t seem to say the word NO. In conversation, he often uses the rather outdated words, ‘gosh’ and ‘by golly.’ But these things only add to his likability factor.
One of my favorite scenes in the book is when the heroine, Holly, and her BFF are secretly watching the hero, Gabriel, from afar. They observe everything he does with awe. It’s a short excerpt, but speaks to Gabriel’s character.

he says, ‘by golly.’ It’s refreshing.”

took his time to arrange her hair so it wasn’t messy. He laughed attentively at
some witty quip she uttered. He then cleared their plates, and they left with
his hand at the small of her back.
