Publisher's Summary

Two years ago, Jason and Kate Ryker were brought together by grief and bound to one another by love. Now married, they're confronting their fears together. But heartbreak finds them again, and the ties that bind Kate and Ryke are tested as she struggles against fear and sadness. As a grief counselor, Kate understands all too well the pain of her clients. And while her husband's career as an NHL forward is at an all-time high, he's coping with the frustration of feeling powerless as his wife's hopes slip away. Kate's unexpected journey sheds light on the fear that imprisons her, and reveals that only she can set herself free.

Love Ryke and Kate❤️

I loved this couple in book one and was happy to see their story continuo. Now married they can't escape the heartache and fears that lay ahead of them yet again. Will their love be strong enough to survive?
A wonderful story of hope, strength and love. Absolute loved it. A definite recommend.

3 Reasons for the 2 Stars

1) I’m irritated that I had to spend 2 credits to hear this couple’s full story. There was enough unnecessary fluff in both books that it could have easily been one book.

2) I couldn’t stand the female lead with her stereotypical lack of confidence and feelings of unworthiness. She was also irritatingly neurotic. And, of course the male lead was rich and cocky, yet perfectly behaved. Cliché much? My eyes hurt from rolling them so much.

3) Finally, there were some sensitive subjects, both in the main plot and subplots, that I felt were handled carelessly for the sake of manufactured drama. It was very off putting.

This Book Has My Heart

Would you listen to Captive again? Why?

I would listen to CAPTIVE again and again. I just love this story, and I love Jason Ryker to death. Brenda Rothert has carried on the story she began in BOUND in such a way as to be seamless, and I just adore it.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Captive?

All of them, but I loved the scene when the midwife showed up, and both Kate's and Ryke's reaction to her.

What does Chris Ruen and Kirsten Leigh bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Chris and Kirsten really make the story here. Their narration just adds so much to, not only CAPTIVE, but to every book that I've heard them read. They both capture the characters so well, and make Ryke and Kate, as well as all of the other characters, so much more real.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

"Is his love enough to set her free?"

Any additional comments?

I would recommend CAPTIVE to any lover of Brenda's books, but also to anyone that enjoys a good romance with a side of hot hockey players. I could not get enough of this one, and absolutely devoured it.
