Meet the Hero from His Shadowed Heart with Hazel Statham

Okay -- its time to tell us about that hunky hero in your book.

What's his name?

Richard Moreton, Earl of Waverly

Why did you pick that name?

He is a strong character and I wanted a strong name.

Give us a brief description of how he looks.

He has a tall, imposing frame. His eyes that had once been described as fine but now hold a coldness in their depths are storm grey. He has a well-formed mouth, a dark complexion and dark hair. He has the natural bearing of an aristocrat.

Is there anything unusual about his appearance?

He is a striking man and one that would stand out in a crowd.

Who does he love? Why?

His second wife, Caroline. Initially, he is drawn to her gentleness and calm, believing she would make a good mother for his daughter, Julia. However, he is not prepared for the healing influence she has on his life and finds it difficult to come to terms with his growing love.

Does this person love him?

From the very beginning, Caroline loves her husband and willingly accepts his offer of marriage, even though she knows it will be a marriage in name only.

Tell us about his family. Are they important to him?

He centers his whole life around his daughter, Julia. He seemingly tolerates his sister, Lady Victoria, but he has a sibling fondness for her.

Where is he from?


Does his hometown affect his behavior, thoughts and attitude?

He is a man of his time and conforms to the mores of the day.

What does he want out of life?

Peace of mind and heart!

What's his biggest secret? (Only share if it isn't a spoiler in the story.)

Sorry, it would give the plot away!

Did you write more than one story about him?

No. This is his only appearance in one of my books.

How would he describe you?

As an older woman that hopefully, he would find tolerable.

Is there anything else about your hero that we need to know? Feel free to share.

I can’t tell any more without revealing the plot. All I will say, is that he has enemies!

It was wonderful to meet him. Thank you for bringing him to meet us. By the way, do you have a picture of him that you'd like to share?

Sorry! The only picture I have is in my mind’s eye.

Thank you for allowing me to introduce my hero. I have a fondness for him and greatly empathise with his story. If he had been a lesser man, his story would have been quite different, but thankfully, he was not.

Once again, many thanks,
