Publisher Description

The warriors of Asgard Island are keeping a secret from their new brides…

Kidnapped from a trade fair by a mysterious swordsman, Lady Avril de Varennes awakens on Asgard Island, an enchanted paradise cloaked in mists and mystery, kept secret from the world for centuries. Against her will, Avril weds her arrogant captor, Hauk Valbrand—even as she vows to escape. Hauk believes himself beyond the reach of love, until his fiery captive bride begins to melt his heart of ice. But soon he must reveal the stunning truth about Asgard and its people—and Hauk and Avril must choose between love and honor, duty and desire...now and forever.

"Powerful. From the very first page you're whisked away to a world where anything is possible." -The Atlanta Journal-Constitution

Didn't Want It to End

I didn't realize until I began reading "His Captive Bride" that it wasn't a historical romance, but a paranormal romance, an unfamiliar genre to me. However, I enjoyed it very much. In particular, I liked how the author described the intimacy between the H/h, the action, and the characters. My only criticism would be that it ended too soon. In fact, I didn't want it to end.

His Captive Bride

This has to be the absolute best novel I have EVER read! Non-stop action, exquisitely written romance and emotionally draining. I couldn't put it down. I started in the morning and kept reading til the wee hours until I was done. Wonderful book, highly recommend it! Only wish I had a Hauk too! 💕
