He’s the most dangerous man she’s ever met…and she’s falling in love with him.
Madison Frost is desperate to escape her life. Daughter of a prominent businessman, she has everything a girl could ask for. Except for a family who’s present in her life, and anyone to talk to outside the four walls of the prison she calls home. Madison dreams of one day leaving her life behind. She never thought being kidnapped is how it would happen.
Now she’s being held captive by a man who’s as frightening as he is sinfully gorgeous. Enormous, muscular, and filled with secrets, the man they call Ghost is an enigmatic mercenary, and Madison is trapped with him. She doesn’t know who hired him or why, but the more time she spends at his mercy, the more she realizes he’s not what he seems. Beneath his rough exterior lies an unexpected gentleness and a heart as broken and battered as her own.
But as Madison lets down her walls, Ghost holds tight to his, hiding secrets that could destroy everything.
My first ever Brighton Walsh book, and it was amazing! I don’t know how she does it! She wowed me and wowed me again through every single chapter. This story is very intense and my heart nearly gave out on me. 😉
To be quite honest, I got a bit nervous about the main topic, which was captor/captive romance. I have never read a book with this topic but oh my, Brighton made me want to read it all over again. The blurb sounded so good, I just needed to have a piece of it and it didn’t disappoint. AT ALL.
Brighton Walsh wrote a magnificent story with ups and down and lots of real in it. Her characters were deep and interesting and I just wanted to know everything about them. They had this mystery going on, especially one of them, *cough*. I loved them!
Captive came out to be really great for me even though the topic made me nervous. I actually read it all really fast, because I couldn’t put it down! I was just so intrigued and so amazed by how the story Walsh wrote developed and how it all played out. She did a wonderful job! Captive is fun, it’s raw, and it’s so very sexy. The best kind of flavors in the greatest sundae ever. I recommend this book like crazy and if you want to dig into a crazy good story, go and pick up this book up now!
Blog Tour Post by Brighton Walsh
Did you know there are dozens of quizzes out there on the interwebs that will tell you what kind of dog breed you are? Yes. Dozens. So when Sil asked me to do a “What dog breed would your character be and why?” blog post, I thought I’d do a quiz and make it easy!
Well, the first one was easy. And was exactly what I thought of when I thought of who Ghost would be.
That’s a pretty damn good descriptor of our surly, overprotective, possessive, but lovable hero for Captive.
The other quizzes didn’t give me quite the desired results, so I went through all the other breeds recognized by the AKC and managed to come up with one more for him:
I’ve never heard of this breed before, but the descriptors are pretty spot-on when it comes to Ghost. Although, I don’t know if he can be considered sweet… Maybe gruffly sweet?
Madison was a little trickier. I didn’t find one single breed that I thought encompassed her completely, but I found several that I thought were a good fit. When I did the quiz for Madison, I got two different answers from two different sites. The first was a poodle, which, I’ll admit, was the first dog I thought of as her, as well.
But reading that description sort of left a lot to be desired, because although Madison comes from an affluent family and has access to the finer things in life, she doesn’t care about them at all. The next quiz gave me:
That fits her pretty close, I think, except for the friendliness. It’s not that she isn’t friendly, but she’s reserved and shy, and it takes a bit for her to warm up to new people. A couple other contenders for Madison were:
Again, another breed I’d never heard of, but I think this probably fits Madison the best.
I don’t think anyone can claim Madison wasn’t a devoted family member after living her life the way she did. She’s extremely willing (and eager) to please, which can be her downfall.
I couldn’t do all these without doing them for myself, too. Apparently, I’m a Corgi. *shakes cute tush*
