Excerpt from my new book out on Amazon

That he loved her first thing in the morning with all her hair standing on end. That he loved her hair natural even with the bits of grey in it. That whether she was a size 8 or 18, or could cook jollof rice like his mother, he was totally, irretrievably in love with her.
She had obviously been asking for too much. Did such a guy exist anywhere else but in her fantasises?
