Publisher's Summary

Jenna McNally is tending to the heartrending task of clearing out her grandfather's cabin when she's knocked off her feet by the impact of a nearby plane crash. She races into the snowy North Carolina woods to help and discovers that this is no plane that's crashed.

Ra'kur's people have been brought to the brink of extinction by war. After years spent searching for a compatible mate to bond with, an enemy attack lands him on a backward, primitive planet and right to the very female he has been seeking. And a Hir warrior's first task in claiming a mate is to capture her....

    "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.

    "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.

    "Who doesn't love bacon?"

    Great and funny start to a series.

    Jenna is a funny and feisty southern girl. The story line is great and I really enjoy the dual narration although the male voice sounded old rather than the sexy rumble it strived to be. Regardless, it wasn't enough to deter me to seek out the rest of the books in the series.

    "Extraterrestrial romance - it works"

    So the plot. Warrior comes to Earth by mistake. Warrior's planet has few female (because ... well, you have to listen). He captures Jenna and then we are off to the races. Its a decent plot, there is a mix of 50% romance and 50% science fiction. In this novel, you have to be okay with that type of mix. The alien speech is a bit hokey and the dialog is off-beat.

    Danes manages to get some underlying messages across without being a soapbox preacher. You genuinely like Jenna and Ra'kur. You wind up pulling for the alien. The narrators do good job. If you like off-beat. then you will like the first book in this series.

    "Unexpectedly well done"

    Audio was engaging. Story was well written. Overall this was not a sleeper romance. This was not like all the other dominating male alien romances. It showed miscommunication and courage of the heroine to get past it and accept the hero.

    "Very good narration"

    I think this is the best narration with I've heard with 2 narrators. I didn't think it would be as good as it was. It was very smooth & I hope they do more books together.
    The story was good too.

    "Warrior of Hir Captures Mate!"


    Thanks to one of my fellow Audible members, I've found another series to concur!

    Captured was a surprising well written story with a natural flow. While the plot did not have a lot of action, it was full of drama, angst, and several steamy sex scenes. The character's were likable, and the world building was very descriptive and creative.

    Kathryn and Adam did an outstanding job on the dual narration. Kathryn projected the perfect southern accent for Jeanna's character; however, I had to get used to Adam's narration for Ra`kur's voice. He did a great job imitating what a male alien may sound like. Ra`kur's voice was deep, slightly gruff voice, reflected emotions but sometimes came across rushed.

    "Good story"

    I found parts of the story funny ( in a laugh out loud way) especially when she cooks him bacon for the first time :) The narrators voice is very clear and soothing. I would recommend this audible.

    "Light reading/ listening"

    Not a deep story; good for light reading/ listening. Not sure if I want book 2 based on previous reviews...
