Her confidence shot, Agent Macy Packer desperately wants to go back to her regular life, before she was taken hostage. To forget the pain, the fear and forget the man that helped her through all of it, then disappeared.

Kane Bledsoe is finally healed, his scars serving as a reminder of his time in captivity. But all he can think about is the blue-eyed woman that saved him. She had saved them all and left him with a burning hope.

A chance meeting and an attack prove Macy is still in danger. Kane pushes himself into the investigation, doing what he can to provide protection.

The enemy is clear, he wants Macy.

Kane will have to decide just how far he’s willing to go to protect her. Can he sacrifice himself when the time comes?

Hi Cindy! Welcome to the blog!

Cindy: Coke

Carrie: Good choice!

Cindy: Mountains

Carrie: yay!

Cindy: Card game

Carrie: now i want to know which game 🙂

Cindy: print

Q: Around here I like to say that reading is my superpower. If YOU had a superpower, what would it be?

Cindy: The ability to know where everything is in the pantry, refrigerator, lost shoes/etc., but I forget why I walked into the kitchen…

Carrie: hahaha!

Q: When you walk into a bookstore, where do you head first?

Cindy: Christian lit section. I want to see what they’ve got in stock for Christian Romantic Suspense.

Carrie: if i can even find the Christian fiction section anymore (sadly) that’s where I head too!

Q: Do you have any strange writing habits/quirks?

Cindy: I’m not sure if it’s strange, but I do have an issue with sticking to one storyline at a time. I’m easily distracted by my own imagination and weave between stories as I write. One will be on my mind and I’ll work on it for a few days when suddenly, a scenario plays out in my head for another story. I have to find a way to shift back and forth, reacquainting myself with the character before I get back into the story.

Carrie: lol i bet that does get tricky sometimes

Q: Did you have the whole plot outlined before you started writing Hostage, or did you let the characters dictate what came next? 

Cindy: I’m a classic panster. I don’t outline, I just start typing! Sometimes I know where I want them to go, they just figure out the best way to get there.

Carrie: haha as long as it works 😉

Q: What do you most want readers to take away from Hostage?

Cindy: Grace. I want others to understand that God’s grace can take on anything and everything. There’s no one too far gone, too scarred that He can’t save and wash clean.

Carrie: amen & amen. So thankful for His grace ♥

Thank you so much for taking time to talk with me! 🙂 Before we say goodbye for today, tell us what‘s coming up next for you.

Cindy: I’m currently working on cleaning up another romantic suspense novel for submission. I’m hopeful to be published again next year.

Carrie: best wishes!

What about you? What makes you want to read Hostage by Cindy Bonds?
