Hi all, my last spot on The Writer Limits had a great interview with Maria Hammarblad, a sci-fi author whose latest release is "Kidnapped." Here's my review. I'd love to hear your thoughts.

Hammarblad takes the reader on the adventure of a lifetime with "Kidnapped." Patricia is traveling home late one night and swerves to avoid hitting a person. Her car crashes and while that person she was trying to avoid, William, actually saves her, she's taken by an alliance soldier, Travis, as a prisoner. Soon, Travis has regrets as he realizes Patricia is an innocent bystander.

The story is a sci-fi romance set in the present day, Patricia discovers there's a thriving population of humans in space. Her captive, Travis, allows her to roam the ship and they grow close. Travis knows that if he takes Patricia as a lover, their futures will be put in danger, but will love give him the courage he needs to defy the alliance and allow him to live his life on his terms?

The story opens with Patricia's kidnapping and takes not only Patricia, but Travis on a journey that will explore the depths of their emotions.

Hammarblad's writing is solid, the plot engaging, and the story shines with creativity. "Kidnapped" allows Hammarblad's imagination to soar.

The characters are likable. Patricia is a sweet girl who is loyal in love. Travis discovers a whole new range of emotions as he falls in love including hope, honor, and true courage.

The novel is sensual/warm for romance readers with Patricia and Travis sharing kisses and tender caresses. The ending promises to bring the story full circle. If you like science fiction romance, you'll enjoy this story. I highly recommend it.
