CAPTIVE Genre: BDSM Historical (Medieval) PREVIOUSLY RELEASED and
NEWLY REVISED 89,000 words

A brooding warrior of enormous sexual appetites succumbs to the powerful
forces of his dark nature when he abducts a novitiate in a plan to avenge
his wife's death.

In a wild and wicked place, where no rules govern civilized behavior,
Geoffrey de Sage forces Aeschine to leave innocence behind and embrace a
mature woman's sensuality. Stripping her of all pretenses, he masters his
prisoner as he would any young untamed animal.

Although he offers her only the carnal and speaks not a word of affection,
the virtuous Aeschine allows herself to be used as faceless vessel, to be
violated, penetrated, dominated in any fashion her captor so dictates. When
the fearsome warlord decrees there will be no strictures between them, no
sanctions, and naught that is forbidden, she gives into all his demands-save
to set him free.

What follows is a tale of love and redemption and erotic surrender, for in
the end, captor becomes CAPTIVE.

Editorial Reviews

Talia Ricci
Joyfully Reviewed:

Captive is not a pretty book, nor is it very romantic. It is, however, an extremely erotic look at how one seasoned warrior can change in the face of love. While I didn't agree with Aeschine's allowance of Geoffrey's use of her, I could see the bigger picture in that she thought he was redeemable and worthy of affection. For that reason alone, I kept reading this book and actually found it intriguing and very well written.

For me, this one's a keeper.
Nan Strebeck
The Romance Studio:

Captive, by Louisa Trent, is an historical romance filled with passion, love and revenge. The historical detail and accuracy denote an author well-versed in the time period. A wonderful, at times even lyrical, read. I highly recommend it.
Zoe Knighton
Sensual Reads:

Captive is an exceptionally well written story. It has all the elements of a historical but with deeper sexuality. Louisa Trent is truly gifted in the art of creating clever sensual stories. You need not be a fan of BDSM to enjoy this story. The fiery interactions between the hero and heroine will delight all.

    I truly, truly enjoyed this book. When I saw this low rating I decided to look at other sites to see if theirs were the same. I just don't get the bad reviews. This is set in medieval times, in a time when women were treated like trash, especially if they were the enemy's betrothed or lover. I love that Ms. Trent is more real and less fairytale. She also has a penchant towards BDSM, which I also love. I think what people fail to realize is that the women in Ms. Trent's medieval books enjoy what is being done to them. They like the torture. They want to be pushed around and told what to do. They want to be pushed beyond their limits. This was not meant to be a fluffy romance. It is animalist revenge sex at its finest. Two thumbs way up to Ms. Trent for writing outside the social norms!

    It was very difficult for me to relate to Aeschine. I understand unconditional love, what I can't condone is torture. Even though Aeschine agreed to take whatever Sage gave her, some of his attentions were so heartless I didn't get the "happy" ending. Also, how can one man be so obtuse?
