But when a mistake leads both him and Regan into the hands of the bad guys, the kidnappers up their demands. Now Regan must create a biological weapon or her daughter dies.

Dr. Regan Lockhart has developed a vaccine that might cure certain kinds of cancer but she is sucked into a scary nightmare when she is attacked on a busy commute to the hospital early one morning. Her daughter is kidnapped, her nanny is murdered, and terrorists are insisting she develop a virus that will kill mass amounts of people or she'll never see her daughter alive again.
No dead bodies are found by hero or heroine if you are the screamish sort, there is a bit of realism suspended with a bank scene, but otherwise I was at the edge of my seat. What would Regan do? Will Colby be able to rescue her? Will she be able to save his sister's life? Will the terrorists win?

Laura Shuck5 Stars Out Of 5Fast paced from the first page to the last, Jordyn Redwood has penned another winner.September 13, 2017Laura ShuckQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I really enjoy Jordyn Redwood's writing, both her storylines and her attention to detail, especially her attention to medical detail. As a professional nurse, Ms. Redwood enjoys the medical field so much that she has a blog that assists other authors in writing medically accurate scenes. Her knowledge and love of all things medical shines in this newest release, Taken Hostage.
Taken Hostage starts off with a bang when what looks like an extraordinary case of road rage, turns into something far more sinister. Colby Waterson is on his way to the hospital to meet with the new neurosurgeon who has agreed to take on his sister's case. His sister has a rare form of brain cancer that other doctors have claimed to be untreatable. Regan Lockhart, a neurosurgeon, has developed a possible cure; but when Colby sees a woman as a victim of road rage, he stops to help her after she is run off the road.
Except, there is something different about the other car; it is almost like the driver is trained to take Regan's vehicle out of traffic without causing her harm. Colby, a bounty hunter and ex special forces, recognizes special training when he sees it. Carefully approaching the disable vehicle, he finds Regan Lockhart being dragged by force and pushed into the other vehicle. Then the shooting begins.
Fast paced from the first page to the last, Jordyn Redwood has penned another winner.
Deana5 Stars Out Of 5Danger at every turnSeptember 2, 2017DeanaQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5The opening scene is so explosive that I sat on the edge of my seat. The author knows how to grab a reader's attention within a few sentences. What would you do if you saw a vehicle trying to overpower another one? Colby sees that very scenario right in front of him on the freeway. His instincts kick in and he maneuvers his way to help whoever is being attacked on the road. The intense drama is spectacular and I immediately knew I wouldn't be able to put the book down.
Colby is a bounty hunter, has served time in the service and has a goal to save his sister who has a devastating tumor. There is only one person who has the knowledge to save his sister's life. Dr. Regan Lockhart is a top notch neurosurgeon who believes she can save Colby's sister. In a split second their lives change when Regan's daughter is kidnapped. As any mother would do, she is willing to sacrifice anything to save her child. Will she risk her practice, and her patients lives in order to save her child? Who wants the virus that Regan has developed and why? The medical terminology is spot on and shows how much research the author has done to make it realistic. I loved the action that never stopped and thought that Colby and Regan worked well together.
It's a race to the very end as the threat of evil tries to take control of the drug that Regan has. When bodies start dropping and the military get involved, Colby has to decipher who he can trust. The author keeps readers glued to the story with high voltage intrigue and a race to find out who is behind the danger Colby and Regan find themselves in. The book easily sends shivers down your spine as the story weaves through labs that become unsafe and a list of people who suddenly can't be trusted. Get ready for an ending that leave you speechless.
The review is my own opinion.
Madalyn5 Stars Out Of 5I'm So Glad I Read This Outstanding SuspenseSeptember 1, 2017MadalynQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Taken Hostage by Jordyn Redwood is a book that will hold you hostage from beginning to end. Redwood's twist of medical research in this book keeps you turning the pages to see what will happen next. That kept me reading late at night to get to the end. The characters are very real as they are faced with kidnapping, danger and making hard choices for self or the greater good. The suspense begins at the very first page and the ending.....well I didn't know for sure how it would end. The romance just tops the book off to be a book you just don't want to miss.
I received a preview copy of this book from the author. I was not required to post a review and the opinions are my own.
KavRCanadaGender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Compelling suspenseSeptember 1, 2017KavRCanadaGender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Not your mother's Love Inspired Suspense! :-) I think I can honestly say that Taken Hostage is one of the most unique LIS novels I've read. There's an edgy desperate vibe to the story right from the start. And the medical research angle was really interesting -- and frighteningly all too real. Tensions run high from start to finish as Regan and Colby fight impossible odds to save those they love most -- and in the process find the kind of enduring love dreams are made of.
