A Heart Held Captive by Katy Eeten
Genre: Christian romance
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): PG
Physical therapist Cole Pearson has had his share of shallow relationships. But a year spent soul-searching opened his eyes to what he really wants in life. When he learns that ER nurse Emily Jenkins has volunteered to pay for a foster child’s therapy, he is instantly drawn to her generous spirit. If only he can convince her to take things beyond their casual conversations at the clinic.
Emily is a prisoner to her past mistakes and insists on paying a price God never asked her to pay. When she finally allows herself to grow closer to Cole, her faulty theology is shattered and her wounded heart begins to mend. But when tragedy strikes, Emily is sent into a tailspin. Can Cole help her grasp the freedom of God’s grace, or will she revert back to the captivity of her old ways and shut Cole out of her life for good?
Is it true:
this is your first book?
No. I published two other Christian romances last year – Blast from Her Past and a novella called Christmas in Meadow Creek.
this book is part of a series?
you lost sleep while writing this book?
Maybe a little. My first round of edits was pretty extensive, and I had a super short deadline from my editor. But I made it!
you did research for this book?
A little. Just minor things like how long of a drive between two cities and what type of injury would require physical therapy.
some characters in this book are not human? (pets for example)
No. All humans other than the mention of an elderly neighbor’s dog.
this book has more than one genre?
Nope. It’s a straight-up contemporary Christian romance.
you speak more than one language?
No. Unless you count my four years of high school Spanish, which allows me to catch a few words and phrases here and there.
you grew up where you live now?
Yes. After fifteen years living elsewhere, I returned to my hometown a couple summers ago.
you love to read?
Yes, though I don’t have time to do it as much as I’d like to.
you are never late?
Well … Overall, I’m fairly punctual. But having two kids and so much going on in life makes me two to five minutes late wherever I go. Not bad, I guess.
you love pizza?
Absolutely! We have it weekly at our house.
you love sushi?
Never tried it, but never want to!
you have a pet?
