Publishers Weekly

Australian author Gracie's second "Devil Riders" Regency romance (after The Stolen Princess) is a breezy diversion that follows the trials of Lady Helen ("just Nell") Freymore, a smart, tough woman fallen on hard times after her father bankrupts the family and loses their home in a card game. Harry Morant, an earl's wealthy bastard son, falls for Nell after seeing her sneak into the Freymore estate stables to help a mare through a difficult labor. In an effort to woo her, he buys the estate and offers her the chance to return home and help him to breed the horses she loves. Nell is not so much captive as captivated by Harry's charm, and fans of light romance will be drawn to this strong-willed couple and their steamy happily-ever-after tale. (Sept.)

This was a really good love story, fast paced and romantic. I couldn't put it down and finished it in 2 days. I love the way she brings in characters from other books, it brings back old friends. I highly recommend this book and this author.

I LOVED THIS BOOK! Harry the bastard son of a earl makes big plans to breed horses.when harry desides to make that dream happen he buys land and discovers in the stables young Miss Lady Helen otherwise known as Nell. helping a horse whose having trouble with the labor. from that point harry couldnt lose her. Harry is so kind to Nell even after she turned him down for marrige. I checked this book His Captive Lady out at the Library but now I'm going to make it a perment place in my Library. The plot kept you going always wondering what was Harry or Nell going to do next? when harry asked for marriage Nell had to refuse. only one thing mattered to her. Torie. her beautiful daughter. with her mother's instinct at full force Nell went in scearch for her beloved daughter with some wonderful suprises in store. I love Anne Gracie and i can't wait for the next book !!!!!!!!!

I no longer read the synopsis on the back of these books, if it's by Anne Gracie, I know I'm going to like it. Within a few pages, I am totally hooked and this book was no exception. Any romance book has issues and villans and this is no exception. The difference in Anne Gracie's books, however, is that her main characters come to care about each other very early on in the story. Too many books have one abusing the other verbally or physically for 90% of the story and then, oops, they are in love the last 10 pages. Harry and Nell know very soon they are destined for each other and their feelings unfold throughout the book until the ending is both anticipated and satisfying.

The second book in Anne Gracie¿s Devil Riders series is the story of Harry Morant and Lady Helen ¿Nell¿ Freymore. Though born in wedlock to a housemaid and village blacksmith, Harry is actually the biological son of a cold, cruel Earl and known throughout the ton as his bastard. Tossed aside as a child and callously used by the ladies of the ton as a man, he yearns for a family of his own but has no interest in love. He has known love¿s betrayal and has no desire to experience it again. Nell, the daughter of an irresponsible Earl, is reeling from unspeakable loss and from the death of her father, after his stunning betrayal. She is leery of men, for reasons known only to her and is guarding a scandalous secret she is sure will turn Harry away from her. I have already read this book twice and I know I¿ll return to it again and again. Anne Gracie has created a deeply emotional, at times heart-wrenching, journey for these two people who must learn to trust one another with their deepest feelings and darkest fears. In this book, villains are vanquished, old wrongs are righted, families long torn asunder are finally mended and a miracle brings joy and hope to all. An array of secondary characters, many of whom were introduced in The Stolen Princess, only added to the pleasure of the story and, as a bonus, seamlessly woven throughout the chapters of Harry and Nell¿s book is a sweet courtship involving two of my favorite secondary characters from this series. His Captive Lady will be released September 2nd.

In 1817 after spending eight years as a Devil Rider during the war, Harry Morant says to himself he no longer cares whether he is accepted by the Ton or not he knows his acceptance has been limited to the bedroom in spite of his biological father being an Earl. Still he buys a run down estate with plans of turning it into a horse breeding operation. He also plans to find some shallow person to marry. On his trek in heavy rain, he meets Nell Freymore who is traveling to her family¿s estate. Being a gentleman, albeit an illegitimate one, he gives her his hat and gloves to protect her from the inclement weather. They meet again at his estate as Nell learns that with her father¿s death, her family sold the property to Harry. As she searches for her missing child, Harry wants her by his side so he holds her as his prisoner. As they fall in love, he vows to find her daughter Torie. --- The story line has been told a zillion times, yet Ann Gracie makes it seem as if this is the first time as HIS CAPTIVE LADY is a fresh Regency romance. Harry and Nell are fascinating protagonists as both are brave, obstinate, and disgusted to be in love. Fans will enjoy the second Devil Rider historical romance (see THE STOLEN PRINCESS) as she may be HIS CAPTIVE LADY but he is her captive lord if he has any say in the matter. --- Harriet Klausner
