Reader’s Comments about Risky Pursuit:

Cheri, you’ve done it again, girl.  Never ceases to amaze me how reading your tales, whether as AC’s [Author's Challenge on] or in Attractions of the Heart, always leaves me smiling. Such intimate dialogue, interaction, and you always deliver with touching confidentiality, and always with that signature pace–bubbly, honest, and sincere. You couldn’t resist coming back to these two, could you? So glad. Thank you for a fun romp, even if it is waaaaay higher than I’d have guts to climb! Guess inspiration is everything, huh? <vbg>~friz

Ditto, ditto, ditto!! Awesome story!! It sure lifted up my spirits today!! :) ~Lara Mei

Fantastic story, Cheri! I really enjoyed it and will definitely look for Attractions of the Heart to read. Thanks for sharing this with us. ~A Reader

I loved this one, Cheri. It was wonderful to meet up with the characters twenty years on and see how their relationship had developed, settled and matured. Not unlike your writing, actually. What I like about it is the totally natural feel you bring to the characters; these people are real, solid and believable. The dialogue resonates with every-day living. I love this line in response to Lacey’s suggestion: I searched her flawless skin and brilliant blue eyes for any signs of fatigue. “Have you been working too hard? Great characters, great sequel. Loved it. ~Trish

Great story.  It was wonderful to be a part of their closeness as Lacey got ready for work.  I haven’t read the previous stories, but I didn’t feel I was missing a back-story.  This one held my attention and gave me just the right amount of detail to let me feel I knew all I needed to know. As for making love on top of a rock; I just might have to add that to my ‘to do’ list.  ;) ~Aim

Nice job, Cheri. Your writing has come on a long way since you wrote, “Reading in a Public Place.” I liked this one, especially the beginning – you set that well, and what a great idea! ~Jo

I love it Cheri. It was good to meet Sabrina and Lacey again in such a moving finale to their story.  ~Dalia

Cheri, that was an excellent story. Thank you. ~Z

Tag Line:

It’s time to celebrate Sabrina Alverez and Lacey Anderson’s twenty-first anniversary climb atop Moro Rock in Sequoia National Park. Sabrina has overridden her fear of heights to please her girlfriend, at least for this yearly excursion, but she wonders if Lacey, an adventurous park ranger, has lost her mind when she suggests they make love once they get there. What Sabrina doesn’t know is what other risky pursuits Lacey has up her sleeve.


Sabrina Alverez and Lacey Anderson are still “Climbing Rocks” in the continuation of their love story. More enamored than ever, Sabrina can’t get enough of her girlfriend and would do just about anything to make her happy. But what if Lacey’s idea of fun scares Sabrina out of her mind? Will she make it to the top of Moro Rock, ~6,725 feet above sea level, another year, only this time to have mind-blowing sex, in public?

“I’ll miss you all day long.” I pouted. “I wish you didn’t have to work weekends.”

“Me too. But you’ll have the whole day to yourself. Our anniversary is coming up soon. Why don’t you research vacation destinations to celebrate twenty-one of the best years of my life?”

“You mean our lives. Hey, we always climb Moro Rock and pop a bottle of Champagne.”

“We can do that again, but I was thinking more along the lines of something, I don’t know, more risky.”

I took a step back. Just contemplating daring feats others find exhilarating elevated my fear factor quadruple fold. “Perhaps you don’t remember how scared shitless I am of heights. Isn’t climbing somewhere shy of 6,725 feet risky enough?”

Lacey pulled me back into her embrace. “I’m so proud of you.”

“Thanks, but please don’t suggest jumping out of airplanes or hang gliding because it’s not happening in this lifetime, or ever.”

“Actually, I was thinking more along the lines of a new pursuit. What would you say to mind-blowing sex, both of us as naked as the day we were born, right there on top of old Moro Rock?”
