Publisher's Summary

Cara Truman is a pint-size pistol whose inquisitive nature has gotten her into trouble on more than one occasion. Her next adventure takes her further than she even expected when she ends up on a journey out of this world.

Trelon Reykill thought he had his hands full. A militant group of Curizans captured his brother Zoran, he's busy fortifying the Valdire defenses against the Sarafin warriors, and his dragon is roaring for him to find a mate. The last thing he expects to find on the primitive planet his brother has taken refuge on is his true mate.

Now Trelon must capture Cara long enough to make her his, but his symbiosis loves her, his dragon wants her, and someone is trying to kill her. Trelon must love Cara so well that she will never want to escape him - if he can catch her.

    I'm a grad student with very little time to edit reviews because I'm editing research papers. Forgive the typos. They're made with love.

    Story
    "Pint-sized Spaz attracts a Dragon Alien. Fun!"

    Again, as I noted in my last review, this series can't be taken too seriously. If you understand it's a bit on the ridiculous side, it's a load of fun.

    In the last book Abby was abducted by an alien dragon. And what single, hunky, alien doesn't have a lot of single, hunky brothers? They might need some single gorgeous ladies... and oh hey, they kidnapped a handful when they took Abby.

    Cara is a super-hyper ADHD insomniac that acts like she's part 3-year-old part rocket scientist. Maybe a little evil genius thrown in. She's an orphan, which I mentioned before, is awfully handy when you get abducted. Her only friends who would miss her were abducted too so there ya go! Now she's buzzing around the spaceship of a dragon race, tearing apart things and improving them, because learning space technology takes a matter for a few sleepless nights.

    Meanwhile, half way through, she starts allowing the hunky dragon-shifting alien man, who's been drooling for her since the moment he took her, into her pants. Then he screws up in very typical misunderstood fashion. And of course, there's a pregnancy in the mix because melodrama just doesn't work without the poor female being knocked up. And last but certainly not least, the evil guys are still mustache-twirling and plotting.

    I like this story. It's quirky, and Cara is a hoot. Don't take it too seriously and you'll enjoy spending a credit.

    Story
    "CARA MADE IT A FUN LISTEN RATHER THAN ROMANTIC"

    It seems everyone except the handsome Dragon Lord Trelon wished they hadn't captured Cara because the pint sized, feisty, energetic Engineering Genius was never where she should be but rather was always where she shouldn't be and she was forever causing trouble and mayhem on board. But the likeable Cara just couldn't help herself.... she loved messing around with technology and all the new gadgetry and circuit boards were just begging for her attention.... and she had plenty of time never needing more than just a few hours of sleep a night, together with consuming buckets full of caffeine, she was like a possessed kid in a Candy Store. And poor Trelon and his Dragon just wanted desperately to claim and mate with her but he always had to catch her first.

    I must admit I didn't enjoy this one quite as much as the previous book as the focus seemed to be more on the fun parts rather than the romance. Oh, don't get me wrong, it did have its sexy and romantic times but Cara, together with Trelon's willing symbiot, brought humor, mischief and innocent antics to the listen which made it more of a funny caper rather than a love story. However, there was also drama, angst, a bitter scheming ex, some heartache and terror caused by their evil enemies the Curizans.

    Worth a credit? Dual POV's, a good male narrator, plenty of descriptive funny scenes which gave great mental imagery as Cara re-wired, re-programmed and re-invented while on board the space ship and the rest of the story was very enjoyable too so YES creditworthy as long as you're prepared for the exasperating Cara!!

    Story
    "Totally love it!!"

    This picks things up pretty much with a rewind of the last book. We get a flashback to Cara as a child. Then everything repeats from the flight onward. This time things are predominately from the two leads POV.

    Of all the characters in the last book, I most related to Cara. Not quite the ADD, but definitely the energetic and creative mind side of her personality. She is so quirky, fun and free! I love characters like her. Others might find her a bit much, but I thought she was delightful!

    Trelon certainly has his work cut out for him in pinning this hummingbird down! He is all bossy alien alpha male. Thankfully, Cara is not going to lay down and take it. Sure they have hawt chemistry, but she is not letting that blind her and cow her. She is determined to be loved for who she is, no changes needed.

    The plot thickens with several intrigues at play on their Valdier home world. I love all these twists and turns that add depth to the series. The layers are delicious and keep the reader engaged. I am eager to see things play out in the other books.

    The narrative is still a touch jumpy at times with a stray thought here and there from another character. Mostly it is from the leads, but those randoms make things a tad herky-jerky.

    Yummy smexy scenes, yeah there is steamy heated detail to get you all hawt and bothered. Have the ice cream ready, and a cold shower, and your special someone!! Whoa mama!

    I listened to the audiobook narrated by David Brenin, who is one of my ear crushes. I just adore his deep rumble that brings these smexy Alpha aliens to life. His pace is spot on and flows beautifully with the read. This is one of those happy pairings of wonderful story and the right narrator. The energy of the story feeds into the energy of the read. A delightful performance! I can not wait to hear him on the next book!

    I want Trisha now!! I know the ebook is already out, but I want David to read to me again. This book leaves off with a tease for the next. I want, I want, I want!!

    Disclosure – I received this audiobook in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts opinions and ratings are my own. I was under no obligation to post a review or give positive feedback. Although in all fairness after loving the first book, I did request it!

    *** I hope this review was useful to you and helped your decision to read or not read this book. I love reading and sharing my opinions with other readers. I listen at double speed; all my impressions of the narration are from that setting. Thanks for taking the time to read my review!

    "Even better than the first book"

    I was very excited to read Cara's story and could not have been more entertained. Cara is just full of energy that this planet was not prepared for... Amusing with just the right amount of conflict and action.

    "What a fun listen.."

    Cara is one of my favorite characters. She's a bundle of energy the manages to get into everything give her mate and all a run for their money. Trying to contain her is harder than one would imagine. You will laugh with all her antics and let's not forget all the hot sex.. The narrator brings this story to life..

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

    Cara is so funny at time's I found myself laughing aloud at numerous times.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Capturing Cara?

    There are lot's of memorable moments,but the most touching was trying to reach cara after she had retreated deep into her dragon after being trapped in the cave.her fear of in closed places was so bad she nearly was unreachable.You have to read the story to find out what happened.


    Have you listened to any of David Brenin’s other performances? How does this one compare?

    Listened to the previous book in the series and found his story telling was so easy to listen to,before you knew it hours had past .


    If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    There's a true mate for every man.
