Publisher's Summary

In the Royal States of America, magic rules all, but life - and love - always finds a way.

At the Texas Charity Auction, money can buy anything, and Summer Cassidy is under orders to take advantage of the opportunity. While she believes the marital collar once worn by an Aztec queen belongs in a museum, it's up to her to sell the priceless treasure to one of the elite in attendance.

Meeting Bachelor #103, a man who finds her descriptions of human sacrifice charming rather than appalling, hadn't been part of her plans. Buying his company for a quarter hadn't been part of her plans, either.

One coffee date, a dinner, and a curse later, Summer's catapulted across the Royal States on an adventure that will forever change her life, alter the course of an entire kingdom, and give her a chance to earn a love capable of defying even death.

Contains mature themes.

The Irony

Captive King is a cute little “happily ever after” story with all the plot twists you would expect in a romance with a magic flavor. I like Susan Copperfield’s writing style, especially her romcoms. I titled it Irony though because heres a book about a linguistic expert and it is full of mispronunciations. The narrator/producer couldn’t be bothered to find a native Mexican/Central American Spanish speaker to ask about pronunciation for the 6 or 8 words that are sprinkled throughout almost every page in the story that are in a common Mexican vernacular but which don’t conform to English pronunciation rules? Really? You might not cringe every time these frequent words are read by the narrator if you are from Kansas or Maine like you will if you are from Arizona or Texas and speak or hear Spanish regularly...or maybe you will too.
