Hi! Welcome to another Weekend Writing Warrior round. Every week writers post 8 sentences on their blogs from a published or unpublished book. Then we "hop" around and leave comments on each other's snippets. Whether our work is already published or in progress, the helpful comments help us become stronger writers on our next WIP. We welcome EVERYONE's comments.
Our heroine, Deanna, is reluctantly running an errand for her boss when she finds herself in the center of an armed bank robbery. When she tries to protect her boss' money she is threatened by one of the robbers — a handsome customer comes to her aid only to become a kidnap victim. Feeling guilty that this handsome stranger is in this fix because he tried to help her, Deanna distracts the gunman.
...and now the eight:
“Run,” she screamed at the stranger, he stared at her in disbelief. “Run,” finally he made a hasty retreat to the street.
Before Deanna could get safely back into the bank, she found herself being grabbed again and this time the gun was held to her head.
“You little bitch,” the robber’s voice was raspy, “you’re coming with us instead then.” He dragged her pleading out the doors and threw her into a van just outside on the street.
Another one of the assailants tied and gagged her as the vehicle made a hasty retreat. About a block later, the van made a quick stop and Deanna was surprised to see the suited customer step into the van.
He looked at her in anger, “you couldn’t leave well enough alone, could you?”

Hostage Heart is a captivating read… I really enjoyed Chelle Cordero's 'Hostage Heart. It read quickly and kept my interest until the very end. I would highly recommend this book and I plan to read all of the author's other books. It took me along on the adventure. I enjoyed the romance.

In 2005 my husband went to New Orleans and surroundings as part of a Federal Disaster Medical Response Team after Katrina and Rita ravaged the area. He was there for six weeks. When he came home he was physically exhausted and filled with tales about the resilience and determination of the Louisiana people he gave aid to.
...this was how Deanna Blair and her family came to be.
