#8Sunday #SexySnippets #WeekendWritingWarriors: Bear Heart #TheWitchesMischief4

Happy Sunday, dearest readers!

Thank you for coming by every Sunday to read and comment on my snippets.  {Hugs}
Today, I'm continuing with Bear Heart, Book 4 of The Witches' Mischief series. Last week our  hero was walking through the woods when he heard a familiar sound: laughter. I've skipped a few lines to bring you this week's snippet.

Enjoy! And thanks again for reading!

Unable to resist, he headed in the direction of the sound, curious to see for himself who was the girl that had his late fiancées laughter but not her scent.  He knew he shouldn’t be coming this way. There was a home nearby. He recalled seeing it when he first came to live in this area and vowed to stay away from it, but Evelyn’s memory kept him moving.
Evelyn. Dear Evelyn. Deep down in his heart, he knew it could not be her for she was dead. Killed by

his own selfishness and stupidity. Killed by his desire for revenge.

Bear Heart 
(A Naughty Fairy Tale)
The Witches' Mischief Series 4

Picture
By day a bear, by night a man.

Half a century ago Simon Lancaster loved a woman. But when he committed a crime and was seduced by a witch his fate was sealed. Forced to live as a shifter by day and human by night, he becomes hopeless.

He believes there is nothing left in life for him. That is, until he meets Margaret O'Hare. An unconventional woman, Margaret makes him feel whole again, but he doesn't know if he can allow the walls he has erected around his heart to lower, no matter how much he grows to care for her.

As their time together has them becoming closer, he starts to trust and love again. But a happily ever after might not be in Simon's future as dark shadows emerge to destroy what he has built with Margaret.

  6. A lot of 'he in this snippet. I'd prefer his name here and there. Otherwise, it's beautiful and captured me right in the heart.

    1. Thanks, Charmaine :) I think that happened because when I started writing the story the hero didn't have a name. LOL
