    Intensely Emotional With Immensely Likable Characters.....

    A lot happens in Donna Michaels' Captive Heart and just when you think you have it figured out something happens to completely catch you off guard. As the starter story to a new series the framework for an intriguing premise of time travel is set up (though with virtually no explanation or understanding of how the event occurs) with dashes of past life experiences and what it means to find your true mate and how the power of love always prevails.

    The connection between Mitch and Samantha is there from the start but is allowed to slowly simmer to an immensely satisfying conclusion that rips your heart out along the way. Sacrifices have to be made for the greater good and it spoke volumes about the h/h that they were willing to put their faith in Fate to do what was right. From the beginning you know these characters will be heroic as Samantha has risen high in the ranks of the Marines through her mental and physical strength. She's strong-willed and doesn't back down from a fight and isn't afraid to speak her mind. Mitch's world gets turned upside down the moment that Samantha kidnaps him to set the timeline she disrupted back in order. For the first few chapters he thinks she's a spy which allows for some fiery verbal bantering with sexually tense undertones. Once he sees the proof though he easily transitions into modern times surrounded by people equally accepting of time travel. Mitch is a real man's man and doesn't want to rely on Samantha through the transition and luckily falls into just the right job with others easily accepting everything about him which at times seemed a bit unbelievable. Just when you think they've reached their HEA though Mitch's honor gets in the way as his true purpose is revealed which means the lovers are separated once again. The ramifications of this are heartbreaking and the emotional rollercoaster that followed had me screaming as we waited for Fate to set things right in a satisfying conclusion that pulls at your heart strings.

    The sexual interludes between Samantha and Mitch were loving yet steamy and evolved at a believable pace and were nicely spaced throughout the story. The cast of secondary characters were delightful with each showing hints of emotional baggage that I look forward to learning more about as each deserves their own HEAs. Maria, Samantha's friend and co-pilot, was particularly fun with the rapid-fire humorous banter occurring between her and Samantha. It brought some comic relief to a story full of emotional intensity and has me already rooting for her to find true love in the next installment in this series.

    Ms. Michaels has created a thoughtprovoking story that nicely blends two paranormal elements in an ultimately satisfying story. With a memorable cast of secondary characters there's great promise of more stories to come and I highly recommend this to fans of the paranormal and sci-fi genre.

    Donna pens "Captive Hero" a fantastic time travel story with characters that are strong and relate-able. A great love story that will hook you right in and one I recommend for all romance readers.
