His Captive by Diana Cosby
With a wastrel brother and a treacherous former fiancé, Lady Nichola Westcott hardly expects the dangerously seductive Scot who kidnaps her to be a man of his word. Though Sir Alexander MacGruder promises not to hurt her, Nichola’s only value is as a pawn to be ransomed.
Alexander’s goal is to avenge his father’s murder, not to become entangled with the enemy. But his desire to keep Nichola with him, in his home—in his bed—unwittingly make her a target for those who have no qualms about shedding English blood.
Now Nichola is trapped—by her powerful attraction to a man whose touch shakes her to the core. Unwilling and unable to resist each other, can Nichola and Alexander save a love that has enslaved them both?
His Captive is a wonderful story full of great characters, drama, and emotion.
Family honor and loyalty to his country has led Alexander to kidnap Nichola from her home in England. Sparks fly from the moment these two enemies meet. As they journey to his home in Scotland, Alexander becomes more intrigued by his captive and soon wishes only to protect her.
Divided by loyalties to both country and family, Alexander and Nichola struggle with their growing feelings for one another and with familial duty. But can two enemies by birth overcome the challenges they face to find love and a happy ending?
With His Captive, the author has created wonderful characters in the caring Alexander and the spirited Nichola. From the moment they first meet, you can sense the chemistry and sexual tension between the two as they struggle with their growing attraction. With his caring nature and sense of honor, Alexander is a fabulous hero that one could easily fall in love with. Nichola’s feisty nature makes her an admirable heroine and great match for her hero. The battle-of-wills between the two is fascinating to watch unfold.
Alexander and Nichola’s brothers are also intriguing characters who I hope will have stories of their own in the future.
The story itself was well-written and captured my attention from the first page. I could not wait to find out what would happen next in this wonderful tale. I would highly recommend this book!
His Captive is a promising debut from a talented author! I cannot wait to read more from Diana Cosby!
