    This is a very exciting romantic suspense fantasy

    Danae Livingston writes fictional accounts of her warrior hero Alekhsiy in a fantasy realm filled with her desires. However, although she has wet dreams about her hunk, she knows he does not exist except in her libido.

    She soon revises her opinion of what reality is when Alekhsiy arrives on Earth needing her help to save his world from evil. He is taken aback to see the woman who haunts his nocturnal desires in the flesh as is she. However, at a fandom fantasy festival, a fanatic demands she writes of the destruction of Alekhsiy's realm or else face his wrath.

    This is a very exciting romantic suspense fantasy with the premise of a writer seemingly having the power of God; although the premise has been used before and Alekhsiy's realm never comes to life. Still, the story line is fun to follow as a fanatic demands death to Alekhsiy's world or death to the "creator", which leads to all types of metaphysical questions. Well written and enlightening, Captive Desires is an engaging heated thriller.

    to silly and fancifull for me

    CAPTIVE DESIRES is succulent tale full of action, adventure, fantasy and passion. The chemistry between Alekhsiy and Danae sears the pages. Unfortunately I had a difficult time getting into this book from the start. I was put off with Danae's quick acceptance of Alekhsiy being her warrior from Torhtremer. I felt that it would have added some depth and believability to the story if he had had to work a bit to prove who he was and why he was now in her world, but her practically falling on her knees to worship him immediately just didn't work for me. I was also put off with how easily she fell into bed with him. Yes, I know that this is an erotic romance, and I enjoy many erotic romances, but the rush to bed didn't click for me. I also enjoy fantasy, but with that, I still need plausible situations that can pull me into the world. There was just to much silliness that I found hard to process and enjoy.
