Romance novelists Cassandra Black and co-author Whiskey Lee have published a new interracial romance mini novel entitled Love After Capture. This new novella follows the journey of Cynthia Taylor, a woman who summons the courage to live, trust, and love again after having survived an unimaginable tragedy.
Love After Capture can be found at http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00KERXY3Y and on Barnes & Noble’s website.
Inspiration for Love After Capture
Cassandra Black, the co-author conceptualizing the story, sheds light on the inspiration behind Cynthia Taylor’s story:
“More and more, we are, regrettably, hearing stories in the news about women who have been kidnapped and held captive for years. I often wondered how these incredibly brave women moved on after going through an unthinkable tragedy, so I created a story line around an imaginary character who comes through a similar fire.
Reading some of the stories about heroes like Elizabeth Smart, who was captured when she was 14 years old and held for nine months; the recent headline about a woman having been abducted from her suburban Southern California home when she was 15 and held for a decade; and the Cleveland, Ohio survivors Michelle Knight, Amanda Berry, and Georgina DeJesus, the longest of which was held captive for more than a decade, are just a few of the incredible women who inspired Cynthia Taylor’s journey.”
Black continues, “We hesitated to include this subject matter in a romance novel. But, the truth is, the category -- “contemporary romance” -- inevitably tackles “contemporary issues,” beyond the expected independent heroine. So we let the storyline unfold, truthfully, as it was revealed during the creative process, focusing on coping, moving on, discovering romance, and finding love, after the ordeal.”
Note: Cynthia Taylor, the heroine in the new romance book, is a "spinoff" character from the recently released Love After Hours, which can also be found on Amazon at http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00K1MS3T2 and on Barnes & Noble’s website.

Love After Capture Book Overview
Cynthia Taylor has a tragic past, only pieces of which she can remember. Struggling to uncover the mystery of her old life has been keeping her from trusting, living, loving -- until she meets the handsome Jimmy McGregor in the North Georgia Mountain town of Jessup Station.
Jimmy McGregor, a loner, who has a reputation of being somewhat stand-offish and a little rough around the edges, has been closed to the idea of love since his wife was snatched from him too soon. His retreat since Mary Ellen’s death has been the solitude of the mountains -- until he meets Cynthia Taylor working in Miss Margie’s nursery and feed store.
As glimpses of Cynthia’s past slowly begin to filter back in, will the memories help bring two kindred spirits in search of a new start closer together; or will secrets, losses, and a love from Cynthia’s old world tear them apart just as they are beginning to discover a happiness they thought would last an eternity?
