God awful The only good thing about this book is that it was an excellent example of what NOT to do when writing romance Since I m writing a romance series right now it helped me to refine my ideas on good techniueMore specifically this book uses Overwhelming Lust something that I am growing and disgusted with Physical attraction in romance is necessary but not sufficient Lust becomes overwhelming when it is shoved down my throat in such a way that I can t even truly believe that it s happening I have never felt this strongly than in this book I just don t believe that you re going to get turned on by a guy that kidnaps and rapes you Not gonna happen even in a fantasy world Or to put it another way that which brings them together is wayyyy out of balance with that which keeps them apart In good romance novels these two are in a sort of shifting balance a bit like a dance coming together and then slipping further apart I wanted these two to break up Knowing that this was not going to happen in an HEA romance I gave it up and am one to better things hard to imagine I could find something worseI don t recommend this to anyone

Instagram Twitter Facebook PinterestI read this book for the Unapologetic Romance Readers New Years 2017 Reading Challenge For info about what this is click hereReal talk that cover Normally I hate the rereleased versions of these old bodice rippers but this is the first time I actually like the updated version than the original The vibrant colors the detail on the woman s costume the glimpse of desert beyond it reminds me of the original cover on Victoria Holt s Gothic novel CAPTIVE which is a compliment as that cover is gorgeousNow the book oh God this book Have you ever read something so bad that it actually became good because you just couldn t look away from the madness unfolding That was CAPTIVE BRIDE for me The story and characters are so unrealistic and ridiculous that it actually took on the surrealism of a soap opera replete with bad acting plots that come out of the blue It was greatWARNING SPOILERS Christina our heroine starts out the story by coming to London with her brother Immediately propositions start flooding in but Christina is utterly uninterested in marriage That goes for Philip Caxton the gorgeous half British half Arab lord who decides he wants her too She spurns his proposal of marriage along with all the rest that plunges her into an I must have her obsessionChristina s brother John who is in the military receives a summons to Cairo shortly afterwards the irresistible call of adventure alluded to in the summary I guess and Christina insists on coming with him That night she is abducted from her bed and finds herself in the camp of a sheikh who is none other than Philip himself I guess he commutes He proceeds to give her the now you are mine villain speech followed by forced seduction traitorous bodies etc It doesn t really take Christina long to decide that she loves him although she hides her feelings because she knows that he doesn t intend to marry her and only wants her for her body etc They settle into a semblance of non marital bliss punctuated by the odd threat of beatings or Christina figuratively stamping her footAt one point Christina is actually kidnapped and beaten before being brought to another Sheikh named Ali He claims he wants revenge for his daughter who he attempted to marry to Philip s father Yasir Yasir was so in love with his first wife that he treated Ali s daughter very badly raping her the first night only to never touch her again after that while neglecting their one son Since Yasir dies before revenge can be implemented Ali decides to target Philip instead Philip comes to save Christina and engages in a fight to the death with the man who beat her only to be strapped down and left to die under the hot blazing son He s rescued of course and then he and Christina go back to camp to nurse their woundsShortly after this one of Philip s men Rashid tells Christina that Philip wants to marry another woman in the camp and needs her to leave forever Which is just so stupid because Philip already caught Rashid betraying him before and let him off with a slap on the wrist why wouldn t he kill someone who betrayed him with his violent temperament Or failing that why wouldn t he warn Christina about the traitor and say something like DO NOT TRUST HIM But Christina being an idiot takes Rashid s words at face value and goes back to her brother who actually takes her capture in stride and is very sympathetic towards herA whirlwind of drama ensues in the last 100 pages or so John gets engaged Christina is pregnant Christina s childhood friend Tommy won t take no for an answer Philip comes back John s wife s younger sister flirts with Philip and won t take no for an answer Christina cries Tommy and Philip have a showdown while Christina watches naked from the bathtub Christina gets shot in the head Philip accuses her of laziness when she sleeps for several days after being shot in the head instead of breastfeeding their son marriage happily ever after etc etc etcHonestly this waswell there s no dancing around it CAPTIVE BRIDE is bad Never once did any of Christina s reactions feel realistic to me and I didn t find Philip attractive at all as a hero because of his many temper tantrums It s hard to fall for a hero who acts like a spoiled child than an alpha hunk Also some parts of the story felt unfinished Philip doesn t seek revenge against Ali for nearly killing him for example and the jealous other woman in the camp Nura doesn t ever lift a finger against the heroine maybe I ve read too many Catherine Coulter novels where the OW usually does something like selling the heroine into sexual slavery in a land far awayI liked it though Lindsey knows how to tell a decent story and there s nonstop action and dialogue to keep everything moving As much as I rolled my eyes I couldn t really stop reading either and the pages just flew by If you re a fan of those old fashioned sheikhharem novels from the 70s and 80s and don t care about whether or not your books are politically correct or if you really liked EM Hull s THE SHEIK and want to read an updated version of that with actual sex then you will like CAPTIVE BRIDE25 stars
