Ra'kur's people have been brought to the brink of extinction by war.

A NEW SERIES THAT CAPTURED MY WILLING ATTENTION

Sometimes I'm in the mood for a good Sci-Fi/Fantasy/Paranormal listen and the Summary of this book, together with the reviews, tickled my fancy conjuring up hot Alpha sexy Aliens winning over us Earth women (yummy). And that was pretty true of how this book went - but the getting there was so delightful..... and sweet too.

500 acres, lone cabin, snow, solitary grieving Granddaughter, large boom, snow flurry, a far too inquisitive Heroine seeks source (err duh! no 911 it) is met by 7ft handsome Alien Warrior with a sexy purrr that sets off sexual tingles (ok forget 911) and a menacing growl and a stun gun (skip the tingles.... get back on that phone woman!). Followed by confusion, tender, touching, funny and sweet times between them and leads to very eager inter-species mating. But life-threatening drama happens so Hero is forced to take drastic action to save his mate which only leads to more drama, more confusion and more life-threatening twists. However, it does end in a revelation, good news and a HEA ending. Oh yes, and another desperate Warrior from Hir sets off to find and claim his mate - yeah, good luck with that R'har.

Jenna was a feisty, fun and very likeable Heroine and Ra'kur was oh so sweet, thoughtful, protective and loving to the mate that he'd spent 5 years searching the Galaxies for. The plot contained impressive world-building skills and gave good descriptions so your mental images could come to life and join in in this Planetary journey where wonders, threats, customs, cultures and strange civilizations live in Clans that viciously protect their precious rare females. I did think the trust and sex happened a little too quick but thankfully I journeyed forth.... and was rewarded with an entertaining and enjoyable plot that was mainly character driven and not sex driven, had romantic and touching scenes as well as drama and angst filled scenes too and a few twists towards the end which totally caught me by surprise.

Dual POV's the narrators were good and stuck to their own gender's dialogue which made conversations flow more naturally and smoothly. But I'm sorry to say that I thought Adam McLaughlin's older voice just didn't suit the young vibrant Warrior from Hir and sounded more like his Grandfather's voice. I'm sorry, it's only my opinion and I know you Produced it and it won't put me off the next book..... but please maybe step aside for Robert Petkoff or his ilk for book 3.

Worth a credit? YES, it successfully captured my attention and happily held it until the very end.

- CAROLYN "I love being swept away by a new romance and thankfully Audible's ever growing Library means I get to indulge myself over and over again"

Greatly impressed.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Absolutely yes. It is well written and the narration is awesome. Held my attention write from the beginning. Something for everyone.


What was one of the most memorable moments of Captured?

The point at which the main character realizes her importance and self worth on the alien planet.


What about Kathryn LaPlante and Adam McLaughlin ’s performance did you like?

The multiple character voices were consistent and very well done to enhance the experience of the listener. Each character was portrayed in a way to individualize and make them believable.


Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I was able to feel the desperation but also the respect and concerns of the aliens. This book makes one ponder our own future, survival and the various issues that we face as a society as well as a species.


Any additional comments?

I was very entertained and found it hard to stop listening. Left me waiting for the next book, should there be a sequel. I hope there are many sequels to follow.
