WeWriWa: Hunting the Hero Pt9

Weekends come around just too quick of late. Can you believe its just 73 days until the New Year (I’m trying not to think of the other big holiday for Aus). I’m posting another snippet from Hunting the Hero. I’ve moved on to chapter two and we’re in my heroine’s point of view. Hope your weekend’s rockin!


SINFULLY BEAUTIFUL MEN were Meredith Clark’s weakness, especially ones who didn’t notice the spell they cast over their captive audience. Known only as Calista in the secluded country brothel, Meredith Clark breathed deep, scenting the clean skin and earthy fragrance of Lord Grayling as he filled her starved senses. Her job might be to please those who came into her arms and bed, but gaining a little pleasure for herself in return was always an unlooked-for treat.

“I believe I shall leave you in Calista’s capable hands, my lord. Do be sure to ring if you require the slightest embellishment to your night,” Linnie murmured, casting Meredith a look that warned she’d better not leave him wanting for anything. The madam departed soundlessly. Grayling barely acknowledged Linnie’s departure. He remained apart and returned Meredith’s frank stare.

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?

    Interesting, can’t wait to see how the evening progresses from here. I like your heroine. Excellent excerpt!

    I have a feeling she’s in for more than enough of those un-looked for treats of her own pleasure…Grayling is far too enraptured for anything less.
