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.

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.

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.

This series gets better each book!

I must be honest and state that books 1 and 2, of this series, are only, Ok. They are short Alien Romance’s. There is little character/ plot development and the storylines are pretty cookie cutter. In addition, I did not like the Heroines lack of empathy.

The third book was so much better than the first two. The plot was more unique and the H/h had much more depth. This one does have a bit more angst, but not overly so. Book three and four are both emotional roller coasters and a box of Kleenex should be handy.

There are some descriptive sex scenes but they aren’t raunchy and there are only 2 or 3. So, if you like a Bossy alpha who talks dirty, this series will disappoint you. However, if you like sweet with a little heat, this series is your style.

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.

Might have been decent with a better narrator.

Any additional comments?

The narrator for this was so weak and whiny i had trouble getting into the story and characters. I think the story itself was a bit too claustrophobic taking place in an isolated location with few characters and I would have liked my hero to be more of an alpha male.

Fantastic!

What did you like most about Captured?

How the narrators made the characters come alive

Who was your favorite character and why?

Loved both the main characters

What does Kathryn LaPlante and Adam McLaughlin bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

I loved Adam's voice from the start but am not usually happy with female narrators however Kathryn was fantastic and will certainly look for more books narrated by this duo.They made the characters seem real and I felt as if I was actually on Hir
