She was the most irresistible treasure of all . . .
Dominic LeVeq, the most notorious privateer ever to command the high seas, has just captured a coveted prize: a British frigate. On a dangerous mission against the Crown, Dominic should be thinking only of his ship's safety. But the rebel captain is utterly entranced by Clare Sullivan, the stunning slave on board. Consumed by desire, desperate to have her, Dominic offers Clare her freedom in exchange for a forbidden night in his bed—a night he assures her will be most pleasureable indeed.
Clare believes that Dominic is nothing more than a seductive rogue used to getting what he wants. But she too feels a tantalizing passion between them, and so she submits to just one night of bliss. She'll soon realize that Dominic has captured more than her body. He's captured her heart . . . and she doesn't want him to ever let go.

While Dominic has started a new life his main mission in life is to rescue as many slaves as possible. He and his crew take over a British frigate. On board he finds a beautiful slave by the name of Clare Sullivan. He steals Clare from her owners and take her to his Free Cuban island. Clare doesn't want to be free, because her children are still enslaved in Savannah.
Dominic makes Clare love him and soon she wants to stay,but not without her children and that's where the action begins. This was one of Beverly Jenkins' best books, you get a great history lesson, action, and romance. Great job Ms. Jenkins
The magnetism that emanates between this couple is palpable yet questionable with their future. Claire would love to have the freedom that Dominic offers her, yet she has two very important reasons to return to her old deplorable life with the mean and selfish Mistress Violet Sullivan. Dominiq has an ulterior motive while enticing Claire with promises and stolen yet memorable trysts at Treasure Island where there is nothing but freedom, friendship, and love for all of the islanders.
Ms. Jenkins has once again enamored her readers with another enchanting and fascinating novel with the most charismatic characters. Captured captivates you from the first page as the suave Dominiq is introduced as he rides to the meeting with his father's scheming wife and son. This novel encompasses a romantic love story revolving around a pirate and a slave. It also educates the reader with research information about a land called Treasure Island, a land of freedom for the African slaves and their strength, courage and intelligence. It also provides insight to the captured slaves and their plights as well as their practices while en route to a foreign land of indignities. I have yet to read a Beverly Jenkins' novel that I've not felt like I've learned something that I never knew. She dares to take the readers to places we never imagined for our ancestors and she enlarges them into the super heroes that history fails to provide us with in our schools.
