Sir Alexander MacGruder and his brothers
planned to kidnap Baron Griffin Monceaux, but when Griffin is
nowhere to be found, Alexander takes Griffon’s sister, Lady
Nichola Westcott instead. The ransom they will demand for
Nichola’s return will pay rebels who will aid in the war the
Scots plan to wage against the English.
The journey to Alexander’s home creates
an intimacy between Alexander and Nichola. They are enemies
and therefore there is no future for them though. Once back at
Lochshire Castle, Alexander faces more than just his forbidden
attraction to Nichola. He and his brothers are going to war
against the English and thoughts of a relationship with his
English captive are futile. But can they continue to deny
From the moment they meet, Alexander is
both Nichola’s captor and her knight in shining armor.
Alexander is an honorable and good man. Although I understood
and sympathized with Nichola, the way she constantly pushed
Alexander away then pulled him back again became tiring.
His Captive is a good story though. It’s
interesting, sensual and full of emotion. I hope Alexander’s
brothers will have their stories told as well.
