#8SUNDAY Weekend Warriors Post “Esperanza” A new type of #Romantic #Suspense

Hey guys!  Sorry I missed out last week, but it was a big weekend for me.  One of my beautiful nieces got married.  They had a beautiful ceremony and reception and are now on to the next chapter of their lives!  How wonderful.

Ok, so two weeks ago we left off with Esperanza uncovering a big secret!  Let’s see where it takes her in this weeks eight.


Fast forward ten years later and you’ll find me, Esperanza, a twenty-four year old female, living in both the United States and Colombia.  A woman, more confused with life than a child is when their parents sit them down and tell them that there is no Santa Claus.  My sister, the woman who raised me as her own and her husband, the man who has been more of a father than any girl could wish for and incredibly powerful in his own respect.  My three brothers, or cousins who are overwhelmingly over protective of me and who love me unconditionally and finally there’s me, the girl who just never quite fit in and who fit in perfectly at the same time.

A woman with two families, two husbands, four children and a ton of regret.  Not even my sister or mother as I once knew her, is accepting of my lifestyle.  Confused?  I don’t expect you to understand my story, but let me explain what got me to the point where I’m at today.


And that’s it.  I hope you enjoyed it.  Visit my Weekend Writing Warrior friends here.

  1. Wow, wow, wow! Loved it! I can hardly wait to read this one.

    One thing jumped out at me. In this line: “…more confused with life then a child is…” The “then” should be a “than”. 🙂

    I’m guessing it happened the same way men end up with two wives. Little lies snowballing into big whoppers, and then you’re trapped.
