WeWriWa: Hunting the Hero Pt10

Hey there. Happy Sunday and thanks for dropping by. This will be the last post from Hunting the Hero for a while. Following on from last week, creatively edited to keep within the 8 sentences. Enjoy.


Meredith’s pulse quickened. Grayling was handsome and had an air of command. A fallen angel sent to lure any good woman to ruin. Not that Meredith’s ruin was possible or even probable now. She’d fallen as far as she could already without being forced to beg. Yet when she looked Grayling over from head to toe, the idea of begging this man for anything involving pleasure held an appeal she could not dismiss easily. Men of his caliber rarely came her way.

However, for the first time in quite a long time, Meredith couldn’t help feeling just a little overcome by a man’s scrutiny.

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?

    You just go ahead and beg! I’m sure you will be rewarded!

    It must be nice to be granted a reprieve from the other men and finally get to spend time with one of Grayling’s caliber! Intimidating, too, I imagine. Great eight!

    Poor Meridith, she should be a little more confident, it seems that he is coming her way.

    Interesting that he puts a dent in her armor so easily. Really enjoying this story and today’s excerpt was excellent as always!

    Ah, she’s been so confident…is it stage fright? Loved the eight this week!

    Beautiful job Heather! I love the emotion we get here and how she’s fighting her attraction to him.

    What a wonderful scene…I have enjoyed the way it unfolded and how she fights her attraction to a man that has bought her time. I’ll miss it, but look forward to what you bring to us next!
