WeWriWa: Hunting the Hero Pt6

Hey, welcome back for WeWriWa. I hope you’ve had a great week and have managed to get some serious fun into your days. It’s the school holidays here and my youngest son keeps abducting me to hang out with him. He’s 11 so I’m making the most of being wanted. I know it doesn’t last forever. LOL I’m continuing with excerpts from Hunting the Hero again this week, moving ahead just a touch in the chapter.


 “What would I do without you?” Mrs. Cohen murmured, genuine affection softening her voice. “These are powerful men and must be looked after as if they were made of glass.”

“Not glass, Linnie. Something much, much warmer.” Calista’s gaze shifted to the doorway where he hid. Her lips lifted into a cunning smile as if she knew he was there, listening while they planned his seduction. “I’ve been at this for a long time now and I know what men want — trust me.”

I love and appreciate your comments. Thanks for reading.

Hunting the Hero OUT NOW

Meredith wants no part of her long-ago identity as Rosemary Randall. She’s created a more exciting life as a courtesan. She’ll never let herself be tied down to the Earl of Grayling, but something deep inside her yearns to stay. Should she trust the man she’s coming to love with the secrets of her past, or flee to save them both from heartbreak?
