Weekend Writing Warriors - Her Hero

Click here for other hop participants

The inspiration for this hot story was something not very "hot" at all. It was winter and cough medications were advertised on TV. One particular commercial caught my eye. A unattractive fellow coughed all day long, irritating his co-workers. Someone offered him a cough drop and poof!, he turned into a non-coughing hunk. A story popped/poofed! into my head. An ugly, bearded, beat up looking man rescues a beautiful woman from danger. Hint: he cleans up nicely.

Here's the blurb to Her Hero:  Rowdy Pierce-warrior. Sara Stewart-artist. Macho mercenary rescues posh jewelry designer. Their lives collide in an spectacular rescue and escape across the Egyptian desert. Sara falls for her sexy, body-to-die-for hero and makes the first move. Rowdy, fascinated by the luscious, sweet-bodied, free-spirited woman he saved, takes what Sara offers. He doesn’t expect to lose his heart. Will their lust turn to something deeper back in the real world?

Rowdy has rescued Sara, taken her to a staging area for
to be put on a helicopter and flown to safety.
He's realizing that he's grown to care for her,
but he has to let her go...
No time left. The ache, snaking and swelling through his body, wasn't just from his unrequited lust. She wanted him as much as he wanted her. He clasped his arm protectively around her waist as they ran straight into the noise and dust kicked up by the spinning rotors. Sweeping her into his arms, he tucked her head against his chest to shield her eyes and almost fell to his knees with the powerful hunger for the sweet, luscious, quivering woman clinging tightly to his neck, breathing hotly against his skin.
No time left. He thrust her into the yawning opening, and as soon as her knees landed on the metal flooring, she scrabbled like a baby further inside. A crewman grabbed her under the arms, pushed her into a seat, and buckled a shoulder harness and seatbelt around her.

After you check out the other participants, I hope you come back here to check out some of my other books:  historical, contemporary, erotic romance shorts, some not quite as erotic, but still hot.  The one thing they all have in common is the happily ever after endings.  That's what I believe in.
 Thanks for stopping by here today!

  1. Wow! You do a great job of interweaving action with arousal. Definitely interested to see these two interact in "calmer" moments.

    1. Thanks, Alexis. To tell the truth, I had a tear in my eye when I wrote that scene. ;-)

  2. Jane, that was exciting combined with heat. Very poignant. And a cliffhanger. Nicely done.

  3. Good descriptive writing, Jane. Plunked me down in the scene. Nicely done!

  4. Ok, went off and bought that pronto! Love the concept and the snippet just *required* me to read the rest. Great 8!

    1. Oh, nice! I hope you like the rest of the story. ;-) Thank you.
