Two years ago, Jason and Kate Ryker were brought together by grief and bound to one another by love. Now married, they’re confronting their fears together.
But heartbreak finds them again, and the ties that bind Kate and Ryke are tested as she struggles against fear and sadness. As a grief counselor, Kate understands all too well the pain of her clients. And while her husband’s career as an NHL forward is at an all-time high, he’s coping with the frustration of feeling powerless as his wife's hopes slip away.
Kate’s unexpected journey sheds light on the fear that imprisons her, and reveals that only she can set herself free.
An emotional read
I knew after reading the first book in the series Bound, that this book was going to get to me. I know that Bound was an extremely emotional read,which had me sobbing on several occassions but Captive got to me on an even deeper level.
This is the continuation of Ryke and Kate's story. When tragedy strikes them again, will they be able to face it together, or will their love fail the ultimate test and break them apart? Fear, frustration, grief and the loss of communication all try and rip Ryke and Kate apart. This story was such a roller coaster of a ride, Captive had me ugly crying on several occasions. And yet at other times I was smiling and laughing.
Captive is another beautifully well written book by Ms. Rothert who captured the very essence of Ryke and Kate's love, fear and helplessness and their struggles to overcome makes for an extremely compelling read.
The chemistry was so hot I thought I was going to burn up, and yet the love and romance shown to one another was beautiful to read. Their struggles to overcome was palpable and at times heartbreaking. However, in the end Ms. Rothert brought their story to a satisfying and beautiful conclusion and never have I cheered so much. If anyone deserves a happily ever after it was Ryke and Kate.
Could not put this book down
I will say it again ,I don't know why I haven't read this series before now. After reading Bound I had to jump straight in to Captive, I needed to know how life would pan out for Kate & Ryke and omg what did you do to me Brenda Rothert my heart was breaking for this couple. This is a true love story that deals with emotions and heartbreak , it's not life through Rose coloured spectacles, it's real life.
From the moment I read the first line, I got a lump in my throat and there was no putting this book down. You do need to read Bound before you read Caltive because it's a continuation of Kate & Ryke's life, their love for each other and their heartbreak but it's not all sadness this author has a way of bringing in moments from the first book that are a complete contrast to what is happening in this book but it works perfectly. This is a beautifully written story with a HEA and now I need to go one click the rest of The Fire on Ice Series. I would recommend Bound and Captive to all of my friends if the rest 0f this series is as good as the first two books they are a must read !!!
