Giant Men Doing Soft Things

You know what I love? A giant man being tender to a puppy. Or holding a baby. Or just generally being soft. I suspect I am not alone. In fact, Kristen Callihan said about her current work-in-progress:

So here’s a recommendation list of romances with excellent giant men doing soft things in them. And, as always, if you want to see the master list of recommendation lists, it’s here.
