She'd been arrested? Mia couldn't believe what was happening to her! How could the police accuse her of killing her ex-fiancée?! She was a kindergarten teacher! But here she was, standing in front of the judge, her eyes wide with fear and confusion.
Into this chaos strode the largest, most handsome man she'd ever seen in her life! Ash Thorpe stepped into the courtroom and took charge, not just of her defense but of Mia's heart. He was funny, kind, intelligent and charming. He had but one flaw in Mia's eyes: he thought she was a murderer!
How could she have lost her heart to a man who didn't trust her? Her life had been so simple twenty-four hours ago. Now she was confused and lost in a sea of insanity that only got more crazy by the minute. And the only man who made sense, who helped her wade through the complicated judicial system, didn't believe in her.
Ash had a thorny problem. It wasn't enough that he was trying to navigate the dangerous waters of a murder trial, he was falling in love with his client! To give in to his urges would be an unforgivable breach of ethics, but so would be giving less than his best! Ash and his team were running a mile a minute trying to come up with a strong defense, but his concentration was suffering from the emotional and physical responses that Mia's presence created. He might be able to save her in court, but would he lose her from his life?

First let me say I am a big fan of Elizabeth Lennox. Elizabeth has written many wonderful books! Her latest book, “His Captive Lover,” is another of her intriguing stories that keeps you at the edge of your chair. Her latest book begins a series about the Thorpe Brothers, who are well respected lawyers in the community. In this first book we meet Mia Paulson, a sweet, well-loved and respected Kindergarten teacher. Mia has been accused of murdering her former boyfriend and she finds herself in the middle of a media frenzy. Much to Mia’s amazement, while being arraigned in front of a judge, in walks the handsome, enormous, rich, commanding lawyer, Ash Thorpe, ready to defend her. Mia finds out that her best friend, Autumn, who works for Thorp’s law firm, begged Ash to take her friend’s case because she knows with all of her heart her friend, Mia, is innocent and she cannot afford an attorney on her own. Ash, at first, cannot decide if she has been falsely accused, or is she just a remarkable liar. Mia finds herself drawn to this powerful man, but her instincts tell her “he thinks you are a murderer and a thief and you need to keep your heart in check.” She believes there is no room in her heart or her life for a man who could believe such lies about her. So begins their emotional struggle. Ash finds himself physically and emotionally drawn to Mia, but because of his ethical code, he fights his feelings because he cannot become emotionally involved with a client, whether she is a paying client for a pro bono client. As Ash and his team struggle to prove Mia’s innocence, Ash and Mia struggle to keep their emotions in check and concentrate on proving her innocence. Will Mia be acquitted of murdering her former boyfriend? Will Ash give into his urges to own this woman body and soul? Will Mia let her guard down and give herself to a man who does not trust her? Well you will have to read “His Captive Lover” to find out. I promise you will love each and every book written by Elizabeth Lennox.
