WeWriWa: Hunting the Hero Pt5

Yay. I managed to drag myself from the wip and signup for WeWriWa. I’m loving my current project but I’m continuing with excerpts from my latest regency historical romance Hunting the Hero. My hero Constantine is where I left him last time still spying through the crack in the door.


“If Solange is the sort to tempt him, then I’m sure he will be well satisfied,” she said, her tone dripping with contempt. Her shoulder lifted a touch as she dismissed him out of hand. “Lord Squires is always expected at ten. He usually asks for me.”

Mrs. Cohen drew closer. “Squires would be nothing compared to Grayling in your bed. If you would but listen to what was said of him you would not be so dismissive. How can you not accept the challenge of stealing him away from Solange?”

Weekend Writing Warriors share 8 sentences of their writing, published or unpublished each week on their blog or website. Be sure to check out the other fantastic writers participating in WeWriWa this weekend.

Hunting the Hero_200

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?

Hmm, I love picturing him standing there eavesdropping…kind of silly but endearing.

Hi, heather,
Interesting snippet – one does get one’s ear full when I listens at the door. Can’t wait to see this scene play out. Well done.

Hi Heather!

I had entered the Goodreads giveaway but couldn’t wait to read Hunting the Hero so I just bought for my Kindle on Amazon! I’ve loved the 3 previous books in The Wild Randalls series and just couldn’t wait to read it!

If your followers haven’t read the first three books yet they should know they can still get them and be sure to read ALL OF THEM!

Good luck with the release and I’m waiting to see Hunting the Hero to be top of the charts!
