WeWriWa: Hunting the Hero Pt7

Greetings. I hope you’re having a great weekend. Its a long weekend for me and just a few more days till school resumes. If you’re a parent you’ll know exactly why I’m so happy today — peace soon. Yippee!! I’m sharing more from Hunting the Hero – creatively edited a bit. Last week Calista claimed to know what men wanted and my hero Constantine was listening to every word.


The challenge was boldly made. All men wanted the same thing from a woman, didn’t they? No demands but on their body, no conversation save for what they expected in bed. There was no doubt her experiences had made Calista overconfident, too. But his curiosity was roused and he was determined to find out more about her.

Constantine moved until he stood openly in the doorway, nudging the opening wider so he could view the entire room. Before him, Mrs. Cohen towered over the woman called Calista who didn’t reach higher than his chest. Constantine was drawn to the stubborn, smug glint in Calista’s eyes –they sparkled with the thrill of her dare.

I love and appreciate your comments. Thanks for reading.

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?

He’s definitely intrigued and I love how you described his actions in these snippets to show him becoming more and more drawn into wanting to know more about her. Great 8!

Constantine has probably never come across such a spirited girl before. His curiosity is delicious to read!

Interesting how his stealth made him so darn curious! Good use of the 8’s, Heather.

He has a great timing to interrupt them.
