Regency Friday: Grace Burrowes and THE CAPTIVE



BurrowesThe Captive by Grace Burrowes

For Regency Friday, I have downloaded for my weekend fun the latest book by Grace Burrowes. She always hits the ball out of the park for me. Combining true love with fabulous storytelling, Grace always manages to sweep me away to another place and time, on a visit with characters I come to love. I can’t wait to dive in.

Description of THE CAPTIVE:

He’ll never be free…

Captured and tortured by the French, Christian Severn, Duke of Mercia, survives by vowing to take revenge on his tormentors. Before the duke can pursue his version of justice, Gillian, Countess of Greendale, reminds him that his small daughter has suffered much in his absence, and needs her papa desperately.

Until he surrenders his heart…

Gilly endured her difficult marriage by avoiding confrontation and keeping peace at any cost. Christian’s devotion to his daughter and his kindness toward Gilly give her hope that she could enjoy a future with him, for surely he of all men shares her loathing for violence in any form. Little does Gilly know, the battle for Christian’s heart is only beginning.


“Burrowes deftly builds the romantic tension amid lovely layers of domestic
tranquility and honest conversations… [an] engrossing story.” –
Publishers Weekly starred review

“This is a
beautiful story of redemption and love’s power over evil, but even more so it is
a story that wrenches readers’ emotions, yet leaves them utterly satisfied. Let
Burrowes lift your heart.” – RT Book Reviews

  • Christy, I found this book to be very compelling. I am looking forward to the next one >>> The Traitor….after reading Captive. I wonder how she can make Girard into any kind of sympathetic Hero after what is already revealed in first book.

      I know what you mean! But Grace has an amazing ability to delve into a character to make him human. I can’t wait to see how she pulls it off. I know it will be a fabulous book.

  • I had emailed Grace Burrowes and she wrote back that this trilogy were “dark books” for her and that she did not plan to revisit the subject, however I think of them as being intense and meaningful. And to make up for all that intensity, her trilogy has some very yummy covers…..much like the cover on your book, Much Ado About Jack. Call me a shallow person, but I do love covers with hunky men on them. 🙂
