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 Every week writers post 8 sentences on their blogs from a published or unpublished book.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.
The mysterious kidnapper returns to the cabin to find his crew tormenting Deanna and he angrily exclaims that she belongs to him and he is not sharing in order to protect her. They are back in the room together. He demands they keep up the PRETENSE and then starts undressing to get into the bed where Deanna already is. Uh-oh! (creative editing used to make this fit)
...and now the eight:
“Why are you…?”
“Because we sleep together.” Just before he pulled off his boxer shorts, he paused, “you’re welcome to watch,” he chuckled when she quickly turned away.
He climbed into bed and sighed, “I am not going to hurt you.”
It took her a few minutes to muster the courage to ask his name.
“It’s Ryan, just Ryan.”
“Why are you doing this, why are you promising to help me?”
“You should never have been here in the first place, now go to sleep; you’ve got to trust me, I’m all you’ve got right now.”

Hostage Heart by Chelle Cordero is available as an AUDIOBOOK and in All Ebook Formats and Print Editions.
Life was hard after the hurricanes swept through, destroying her parents' home and livelihood...Deanna did the only thing she could do. She moved to New York City, found a job, worked hard, scrimped and saved to send what little she could manage back home to Louisiana to her parents.
An errand for her boss - a chance encounter with a crew of bank robbers - a kind man who tried to help her and deserved her courageous help in return... But he wasn't the man she thought he was...no, he was so very much more!
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.

Well winter is certainly persistent this year and with only 14 more days until the official beginning to spring, it's still dropping that white stuff! I only hope when the warm up finally happens it will be gradual - I fear that an immediate thaw will drown us all!
I also must speak up in defense of those poor miniature snowmen that have been depicted on FaceBook with knives sticking into their little crystallized bodies and the words emblazoned "Die Winter Die" - Isn't it enough that when the weather does turn warmer they're going to melt anyway?
In the meanwhile I am getting great exercise from shoveling, so that is indeed a benefit. Now I am trying to figure out how to bottle up some of the cold air to save for summer and save on air conditioning.
