Christelle (angel85qcca) Hi!
I am wondering if there is a book out there (I'm sure there is) about a widower with small children who falls in love again. I would love it if he would fall in love with someone from his wife's family, but any widower story will do.

Becky (fibrobabe) | 1404 comments Butterfly Tattoo is about a widower with a child who falls in love again. Full disclosure: the widower is bisexual. The relationship that develops in the book is with a woman, but the partner who died was a man. I don't remember there being any explicit flashbacks or anything, but it's been a while since I read it.

Not Just the Nanny is a category romance about a widower with two kids who falls for the nanny. I don't read category romances very often, but I enjoyed this one.

ETA: Oh, I just remembered this one. If you read m/m, Faith & Fidelity is about a widower and cop with three kids who falls in love with a former cop/drinking buddy. It's the first book of a trilogy and quite emotional.

And now I've pretty well spanned the options for widowerhood!
