Know the Hero from When Love Whispers

Here are some fun questions to help us know your hero.

Describe the kind of clothes he prefers to wear.

He loves to be comfortable, but as a military cadet, he wears the academy uniform during the day. After class, he can’t wait to dive into running shorts and a t-shirt. He’s a runner, and he’s running every free moment.

What is he like around children?

He isn’t accustomed to children, but there’s one baby he loves and wants to hold. He never thought he wanted a family. He’s determined to pursue his military career, but when he sees Willow holding her baby, the confusing surge of emotions make him wonder what he really wants.

Does he drink coffee? If so, how does he take it? If not, what does he drink instead?

He’s not a coffee drinker. Because he’s a runner, he drinks lots of water. Not that he likes water, but he needs to stay hydrated, even in a humid place like Charleston.

What apps would he have on his phone?

He has all the phone apps. One of his favorites is the food delivery service. When he’s studying, he’ll often miss meals. He has a senior project due and he’d rather work on that than eat. He’s an eat to live type of guy. Even though he’s a runner, he can’t resist a cheeseburger and fries. He also likes the flower order app. After all, what better way to make a new mother smile that order her a bouquet of two dozen red roses?

Beard or clean-shaven?

He has to be clean-shaven. At the academy, haircuts and shaving are part of a strict standard, but when he’s forced to spend a few weeks at Willow’s family’s farm, he relaxes from the academy’s strict code and enjoy a laxer standard.

Personal vehicle or public transport?

He doesn’t care what he drives, but his mother, with her newfound wealth, greeted him Christmas morning with a new sports car. It’s a babe magnetic, which he’d appreciate if he had time for women, but he enrolled in the academy to pursue a military career and that’s his focus … for now.

Thanks for helping us get to know your hero!
