Earth is being invaded by a ruthless
When Mikayla is captured by the enemy
to work on the invaders’ ship, she comes face-to-face with
Captain Sidious Marcone. She is riddled with guilt at the
attraction she feels for the man partly responsible for
destroying her world. The only thing she wants is to return
to the life she once knew and her loved ones.
Sidious is playing a dangerous game;
Mikayla could prove a fatal distraction. He’s working from
the inside with the rebel forces to undermine the siege on
Earth. A relationship with a stubborn, beautiful woman runs
a serious risk. Still, he cannot resist Mikayla’s
challenge; she is everything he’s ever dreamed of in a
Trista Ann Michaels’ Entwined
Fates: Captive is solid, clean writing which is why
it was so disappointing the more I read, the fewer the plot
surprises. From the time Mikayla starts mouthing off to
Sidious (much to his amusement) their rather predictable
interaction left me feeling bereft. Mikayla seemed more of
an irritating, foolhardy brat to me instead an assertive,
strong willed woman fighting her emotions. Sidious was far
more agreeable, although I needed some convincing he was an
alien invader. This is vaguely explained, even though he
has the look and feel of a guy that Mikayla just met
somewhere on Earth. Their chemistry is electric, but didn’t
match my expectations for a tale with a futuristic setting.
Entwined Fates: Captive is the prequel to
Entwined Fates: Destined for Two, and can be read as a
stand-alone. Overall, this is a sweet romance with loads of
torrid sex hot enough to melt the destroyer craft engines.
Sadly, it failed to shoot me into hyperspace despite the
precisely delivered storytelling.
