I thought this book was really good. It had most everything that I like, humor, a feisty heroine, a handsome, dynamic hero, a little adventure and suspense in whatever form and romance. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who asks about it. I'll definitely be telling my friends about it.

Originally posted on Adria's Romance Reviews Given that I wasn't even born when Captive of Desire was originally released, I don't have any first hand experience to compare this new, writer's cut to. I can say that even with the changes the author has made, the book reveals its age and gives first time readers a glimpse of what romance novels were like back in the 80's. Which can be a good thing or a bad thing depending on who you ask.

Lucy Laedelia Penreith or "Laddy" was 17 when she first met Mi Originally posted on Adria's Romance Reviews Given that I wasn't even born when Captive of Desire was originally released, I don't have any first hand experience to compare this new, writer's cut to. Unfortunately, circumstances separated the two before they could begin a relationship. Eight years later, the two are reunited and begin a relationship, but before they can say "Happily Ever After," their relationship is put to the test. Half truths and misunderstandings separate the two and towards the end I wondered if Captive of Desire would have a happy ending.

That alone kept me glued to the last half of the book. What was interesting to me as a reader was watching two people so obviously in love sabotage the opportunities to be together.

Things would go smoothly for a while, then something would happen and Laddy or Mischa would make it worse by jumping to conclusions or overreacting. The two are sometimes so frustrating but at the same time I felt sympathy for them. They knew it wouldn't be easy to be together but they loved each other enough to try. The pacing of the story could be considered slow in terms of Laddy and Mischa's romance but when it comes to plot development and character growth, Captive of Desire nails it.

In other words, if you're an impatient romance reader, then the pacing is going to drive you insane, but if you like to take the time to really get to know the characters and the circumstances in which they find themselves in, then you'll enjoy this book immensely. I fell somewhere in the middle. There were some parts of the book that I felt went on too long, mostly in regards to the "downs" of Mischa and Laddy's relationship, but on the other hand, I enjoyed the time and effort that author Alexandra Sellers put into making sure readers truly knew her characters.

Mischa and Laddy's chemistry is evident very early on, the two seem to create sparks whenever they're together. However, if you're looking for hot, steamy, explicit sex scenes, you're not going to get them with this book and that's a shame because the author creates very palpable sexual tension but in the end I felt a bit short changed.

The one true pet peeve I had about Captive of Desire, oddly enough is the heroine's nickname. It's preposterous. She's a grown, professional, independent woman yet she has the nickname of a 5 year old boy. It was hard to see her as anything other than a child with that nickname. I get that when she was younger she looked more like a boy than a girl but as she grew up, her nickname should have been left in the past with her childhood.

Sometimes it made reading her scenes with Mischa difficult because I couldn't shake this image of a prepubescent girl with a full grown man. Other than my issue with a name and the image it created, Captive of Desire will satisfy romance readers who want more detail and growth in their novels but may frustrate readers who don't want a story to seem like it drags on and on and skimps on the sexual part of the characters' relationship.

I need to frame this review by saying that I don't read a lot of fiction. My reading time is limited, so I tend to focus on business and marketing books.

Most of the fiction books that I've reviewed here on Goodreads are classics that I read at university. And I have never been an avid reader of romance novels, so this is an all-new genre for me. It was important for me to clarify that so you know where I'm coming from with this review. This is not just a book for fans of Harlequin romance novel I need to frame this review by saying that I don't read a lot of fiction. This is not just a book for fans of Harlequin romance novels this is a new edition of a book that was previously a Harlequin SuperRomance. It's also a book for readers of contemporary fiction and for fans of love stories in general.

It's an intense read that's deeper than a chick lit novel. In summary, I really enjoyed this book! It was a compelling and intelligent read, and if I didn't finish it in one sitting it was because life got in the way of devouring it all at once. The main character, Laddy Penreith, is instantly loveable, and the story is gripping and suspenseful. It's impeccably written, and I cannot believe this is one of the author's first books. I highly recommend this book for anyone who's interested in a good love story Disclaimer: I know the author personally and work with her through my company, Tribal Publishing, which helps authors build their online platform using social media.

Our professional relationship did not affect this honest review. You can see my full review at My Book Addiction Reviews. This was a book I really wanted to like and that I thought I would like a lot. Unfortunately, Mischa just wouldn't let me. Instead, he knew, treated her horribly, and then admitted to her that he knew and still decided to treat her horribly. Add to that, he decided that she would just "be angry at You can see my full review at My Book Addiction Reviews. Add to that, he decided that she would just "be angry at him" and proceeded to jerk her chain in a nasty way even further.

At that point, I washed my hands of him. There is a point of no return and Mischa didn't cross the line, he took a running leap across it and kept on going.

Let me start off by saying this book was published before I was born. The whole book feels very dated, and it's very wordy. It just keeps going The book focuses on Laddy and Mischa's desire to be together through several obstacles. The instant chemistry from Laddy who nicknames a girl Laddy?

    The kind of instant sexual attraction that she has to him just isn't something I can r I was offered a copy of this book for an honest review. The kind of instant sexual attraction that she has to him just isn't something I can relate to. The plot of this book was so slow it was almost painful to read. I considered not finishing it but decided to push through it because I thought I owed it to the book to at least see it to the end.

    Overall it wasn't a book I would recommend or read again. Nov 14, Mandy Jones rated it liked it. A wonderful book about a love that tries to prevail between our hero and heroine. Alexandra Sellers does a great job of writing this story and weaving tales of humanity into it.
