Back Blurb 

Twenty-five-year-old Tristan Doran enjoys a life of incredible power and privilege. As a direct descendant of the Keepers—witches who have embraced dark magic—he defers to no one but his overlord, Lord Bosque Mar. For most of his life, Tristan has been kept out of the centuries-old Witches War, his bloodline too valuable to risk in battle.

But when a beautiful, young human Searcher named Sarah is captured and made a prisoner in his Irish castle, Tristan’s infatuation with her flings him headlong into the fray. Captive and captor, unable to contain their longing, embark on a passionate, forbidden romance together—only to learn that their love is at the heart of a prophecy predicting the downfall of the Keepers’ ages-old reign.

Captive explores the darker side of the richly imagined Nightshade universe, a fantasy world of powerful dark witches, shape-shifting wolf warriors, and fascinating history. The first of three erotic novels, Captive delves deeply into the fiery, illicit romance of two young lovers whose very desires invite their doom.

What I LIKED about this book.

Romeo and Juliet style love without the double suicide! 

What I DISLIKED about this book.

I would have liked to see more of what happens next when the book ended. 

Full Review

Birth and destiny. Sarah and Tristan are born on opposite side of a long standing war between the witches. Sarah is on the side of good, Tristan is expected to lead the forces of evil one day. We do not always fit the molds our elders want us to.

Of course I was hoping Sarah and Tristan would make it work but now a days, you are not guaranteed a HEA. I really enjoyed Sarah and Tristan. Him more than her. Tristan is a very intriguing fellow. Several characters were not who they appeared to be, nice character development.
