WeWriWa: Hunting the Hero Pt8

Greetings. Disastrous week on the writing front here. Computer problems and program updates are driving me crazy but thankfully WeWriWa posts everything better. 🙂 I’m again sharing more from Hunting the Hero. I’ve skipped ahead a teensy bit from last week. In the last excerpt shared, Constantine wanted an introduction. Calista strutted forward and…


The bold move placed her between him and the bawd as if the larger woman might need her protection. “This was a private conversation, my lord.”

“About me.”

Calista shrugged as if the matter were of no importance. “Wagers are placed in any number of places and at any time about many things. Do you take offence to each and every one?”

“I never said I was offended. I just doubt your ability to do as you claim.”

I love and appreciate your comments. Thanks for reading.

Weekend Writing Warriors share 8 sentences of their writing, published or unpublished each week on their blog or website.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?

She is certainly not a push-over. Good 8
