5.0 out of 5 stars Captivated by Captivating. January 31, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I think I have most of Nora Robert's books on my Kindle (and we own 4 kindles, counting the PC versions). I have a lot of them in paperback as well, but i ran out room to store the hard copies. I'm a 65 year old male, Southern Baptist Preacher and I still cry over fairy tales. Somebody is going to say, yes but these books are about witches. I don't know what that says about me. I do know what it says about Nora Roberts. She always writes a fascinating story that I want to read over and over. I am very glad to see that that Ms. Roberts is allowing so many of my backlist favorites to be reissued in the Kindle format. The Donavan legacy series have long been among my favorites. Captivating is the first in the series. It shows what happens when a throughly modern man (a screenwriter no less) meets a beautiful, throughly modern Irish witch. He writes about witches and ghosts and things that go bump in the night professionally, but he is not a true believer, until the witch demonstrates her power for him. Actually this is the formula for the entire series--a set of cousins with heriditary elvin blood end up marrying very modern, very skeptical people and live happily ever after. It's silly maybe, but I preordered the whole set for my Kindle, and have just finished rereading them, and in six months to a year, I'll probably read them again.

4.0 out of 5 stars Another good read from Nora Roberts! July 11, 2000
Since I collected all of Nora Roberts' books a few summers ago, I am slowly reading her titles to make them last. But considering she writes three books a year, I will most likely always have a Nora book to look forward to. And once again as she has done in the past this author has entranced me with the first book in the Donovan series, Captivated.
When Nash, a Hollywood writer, needs help with facts for his next thriller movie, he seeks out the beautiful Morgana, known in the community to be a bona fide witch. But what he doesn't reckon with are her powers which he doesn't at first believe are anything more than pranks. And he certainly doesn't believe that her two cousins, Sebastian and Anastasia are anymore witches than their parents are either.
Like many of Nora's other series book, this one is light and entertaining and has me looking forward to reading the next title, Entranced.
Note - Although it says that this title is out of print, in 1999, the first three Donovan titles were published in one book called The Donovan Legacy. And at the same time the fourth book Enchanted about cousin Liam Donovan was also published.
So happy Wiccan reading and afterwards tell me you don't believe there is any truth in this paranormal tale.

4.0 out of 5 stars Charming, unusual. Positive Witchcraft and familiars. October 16, 1998
This book was a welcome and unexpected relief from the hum-drum of most romances. The characters were vivid, and of course, much larger than life. The use of the Wiccan religion as a background was quite detailed and fairly true to life. Although, of course, most modern day Witches do not levitate when they kiss their prospective lovers. The trials and tribulations of our main character, Morgana, as she resists the lure of the obvious husband-to-be, Nash, are somewhat predictable in the independent female type line. However, the addition of her familiar, an Occult shop and the characters that accompany such a lifestyle add a charm and flair rarely seen in such material. The wrap-up include priceless and humourous views of what appears to be a haunted castle deep in Ireland. I can only say - Read It! And then, look for the others. Even now, I am searching for the other two titles in the Donovan Series.

4.0 out of 5 stars It was just o.k. for me! May 3, 2006
By wwgrl
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I had read The Reef which was a great book so I decided to read this one. Well it was just o.k. The Reef was much better!! There was just not much to it. It was just a clean cut happy story. No x-boyfriends, no enemies, nothing except that Nash thought Morgana had put a spell on him when all it was was he had fallen head over heels in love with her. Yeah you do stupid things when you are in love. If you like sappy love stories with not much of a struggle this would be perfect for you. I like my stories with a little excitement, some struggles the characters have to go through then when they do get together it makes it all the more sweeter. Plus it is more interesting to read. If you want to read an enjoyable book with action, (good), interesting main characters, tropical settings, and a realistic romance story with problems but they do work them out then read The Reef. It's a great book!!

4.0 out of 5 stars A Love Spell or True Love? May 17, 2005
Format:Mass Market Paperback
When screenwriter Nash Kirkland wanted to research information on witches for his next horror movie, he went to a real one. Enters Morgana Donovan, a witch with a good reputation. But the problem for Nash is that he becomes obsessed with getting to know the real Morgana - her likes, dislikes, etc. Has she put a love spell on him or has he taken the plunge on his own? He's sure it's a spell, because he's never felt like this before. Would his doubts in her character ruin any chance at happiness that they might have?

CAPTIVATED is a wonderful story that will leave the reader feeling great after reading that last page. It's a true "feel good" tale. It's definitely worth the price of purchase. It's also a good thing that the publishing house reprinted this with the other stories of the Donovan Legacy, as they were very difficult to find before the reprint.
