Mamere called it vibrations - Weekend Writing Warriors / #8sunday / 03/15/15

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 Every week writers post 8 sentences on their blogs from a published or unpublished book.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.

WeWriWa blog

Facebook Snippet Sunday group


My entry this week is from Hostage Heart, a romantic suspense involving a young lady from Louisiana whose family was affected by the devastation from Hurricanes Katrina and Rita.

Ryan and Deanna have kept up the pretense that she is (literally) his property in order to keep the rest of his crew away from her. Kidnapper aside, Deanna feels safe with Ryan and she's begun to worry what will happen to him if the robbers are caught. [note: "mamere" is what Deanna called her elderly  Cajun grandmother who died during the hurricanes and flooding in Louisiana]


...and now the eight:


“You’re nothing like those other men, why are you even involved with them?” Deanna knew that his kindness to her was more than just an act. “You are different, you act like them, but you aren’t. Who are you?”
Her mamere used to call it vibrations and Deanna got very different vibrations from Ryan than from his cohorts.
He stared at her in silence, finally he looked away. “The less you know about me, the better off you are. Don’t ask questions.”

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!

Review
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.

"The less you know about me, the better off you are."

Now I'm more intrigued than ever!

Iris Blobel said...

typical man answer ... but like Pt, I'm intrigued as well. I love this story!

Anastasia Vitsky said...

Is mamere a special term, or in a certain language?

Linda said...

I can understand she is curious but seriously the guy is keeping her hostage, hello Stockholm syndrome girl, get a grip on yourself, he is not a good guy, he just robbed a bank!

Cara Bristol said...

Because it's a romance, I know it will end well, but in real life when a man warns you off, you're wise to listen to him!

Sarah W said...

He knows just what to say to drive her nuts with curiosity, doesn't he?

I'm with Iris: Men! :)

Elaine Cantrell said...

I'm almost as curious as she is as to his identity. I love it when something captures my attention and makes me want to keep reading.

Kim Magennis said...

He is now completely irresistable. The Dark anti-hero is always far more intriguing than the out and out good guy. Thank you for sharing.

Charmaine Gordon said...

Cliffhanger alert and it's who he is-not just what his name is. SO tell already. Maybe next week? Or better yet, but the book. That's my motto.

Siobhan Muir said...

Oh, that won't get her more interested at all. ;) Great snippet, Chelle.

Cecilia Corona said...

OK Well that just makes me want to know more about him!

caitlinsternwrites said...

"Don't ask questions." Yeah, that will work. She's absolutely going to keep asking questions.

Love that you called it vibrations, great word choice. It'll be interesting to see how she responds to his statement. Great 8.

Author, Neva Rodriguez said...

Ooh, that closing was awesome!!! Very eerie! I love it!!!

Veronica Scott said...

Now I'm wondering if he's an undercover cop or something - he seems to be a good guy in a very bad situation all right. Loved the mention of the 'vibrations'....cool. Great 8!

Teresa Cypher said...

I want to believe that he's a good guy. I wonder if he's undercover or something...

Great intrigue, Chelle! :-)

Jennifer Reynolds said...

Cryptic much! I'm betting I could guess his secret, but I won't ruin the story for myself. :)

diannehartsock said...

He certainly likes to be mysterious! Hopefully she's right and he really is a nice guy under all that mystery. :)

Michelle Howard said...

Don't ask questions just makes you WANT to ask questions. Another great snippet
