Book Description

A shapeshifter and a wizard slugging it out, an alien world and a hell-horse...

Jockey Camryn O’Sullivan is an alcoholic on a downward spiral after the death of her husband. When aliens kidnap her, she’s both terrified and reluctantly fascinated by Ryman Coppersmith. She’s positive the weird attraction to her abductor is an anomaly. Something to ignore. She’ll train the aliens’ horse and they’ll return her home. Simple. There’s no need for sex or a stubborn male kitty-cat to replace the precious memories of her husband.

Murder. Betrayal. Banishment.

Feline shapeshifter Ry has experienced treachery of the worst kind. When his foster brother—the man who betrayed him—proposes a wager on a hell-horse race, the lure to clear his name is irresistible.

Camryn’s arrival triggers a jump in his already overactive sex drive. It’s a struggle to keep his hands off his beautiful captive. Something in his mysterious feline background compels him to chase her and the passion firing between them soars out of control. Ry doesn’t understand the mechanics of their attraction but knows he can’t afford to lose Camryn…despite his promise to return her home.

This is a good book. A little warning though this book was previously released under Ellora's Cave AEON with the title House of the Cat. Luckily the blurb struck a chord and I remembered I have the previous version :)

3.0 out of 5 stars Good Story! I rate it 3.5 July 7, 2014
By Julie
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is my first book by this author and thought the story was good. The reason I gave it a 3.5 is because the story was slow and to me it didn't flow smoothly. Camryn was this great jocky and horse trainer, but it just didn't come through that way. When it did it was a little bit unbelievable. However, I will try to buy and read another of her latest books. Keep writing!

3.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable December 24, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
Reviewed by Lynn

CAPTURED & SEDUCED has it all--a drunken horse jockey, some aliens, a shapeshifter, a hell-horse race, sibling rivalry, kidnapping, and betrothals.

Ryman Coppersmith, a feline shapeshifter, has been framed for murder by his jealous foster brother and the only way to get his name cleared is to beat his brother in a hell-horse race. Ry and his crew decide to kidnap a top ranked human horse trainer to ensure victory in the race; instead they get his drunken twin sister. Camryn O'Sullivan, once an accomplished jockey, is no stranger to horse training and is committed to helping Ry and his crew if it means they will leave her brother alone with his family.

Ry, a shapeshifter who knows nothing of his heritage and only uses women to fulfill his insatiable sexual needs, and Camryn, a widow who turns to alcohol to deal with grief, are quite a match. They both fear the feelings that are developing between them and work hard to convince themselves they will easily part ways when the hell-horse race is over. If they can overcome viscous hell-horses, traitorous family and friends, and the fact that they are from different worlds, they might stand a chance of finding happiness.

There were elements of this book that I really enjoyed, mostly the main characters and their relationship development. Camryn's grief over the loss of her husband and her guilt over her feelings for Ry were honest and painful. Ry's confusion over his brother's betrayal and dedication to his crew demonstrate his honorable nature. Through the process of finding, capturing, and training a hell-horse, the two grow continuously closer to each other.

5.0 out of 5 stars here kitty, kitty January 26, 2015
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I absolutely loved this book, it's not a quickie but I read in one day because I couldn't put it down. I have read other books by Ms. Munro and this one holds up to her excellent standards. She gives enough background information on her characters so that you understand their actions and motives. Her main characters are always unique and fascinating. In this book the male is an alpha male cat. The female may be weak in the beginning but she grows stronger throughout the book. She has a really different set of characters for the ships crew, all of them aliens and vastly different. The book has a lot of humor in it, I found myself smiling while reading and even laughed out loud couple of times. it also has a little mystery, magic, action and, of course, hot sex in it. I am so happy I got it, I now have a new series to read and enjoy! If you like shifters and hot sex with a great storyline, this book is for you. I DID NOT get this book for free in return for a honest review. I reviewed this book because it was good and wanted others to know just how good it was!

4.0 out of 5 stars The House of Cat August 15, 2014
By Unknown
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This was a pretty good story. I enjoyed the story for the most but just a few things stood out that seemed a bit strange to be in the book. Somewhere in the beginning there is a bad character going after the "INDY" and he says something in French. It was just so out of place in the story where no one else spoke French. I am not positive, but I don't think the author ever revealed how Gabriel died. Please correct me if I am wrong!! I could have just forgotten. "The House of Cat" was a great idea that took care of the mystery surrounding Ry. I really like the fact that the book was long!! I would even love to see an image of the Hell-horses as the author pictures them. I have my image I got. I am moving on to the second book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great SFR with unique worldbuilding June 12, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
I'm a long time fan of SFR and am always on the lookout for something unique that stands out from the pack, and Captured and Seduced certainly does that. I love it when an author's hero has flaws, but it's not quite as common when it's the heroine with flaws and issues, making her redemption all the sweeter. The world building is detailed and just as unique as the characters. If you like shapeshifting feline hunky heroes and a complicated heroine who fights falling in love only to realize love is the answer, then look no further. Cannot wait until the next book in this series.

3.0 out of 5 stars Liked it, but frustrated January 18, 2015

I really like this book and the price was great. It wasn't too short like other books. I had a slight problem, the female lead of the book conveniently remembered her husband passed at the worst possible moments. I was ready for her to get past her grief ( we were never told how her husband passed away) and when she finally did, she was over him in an instant. Over all, this book was a pleasant read and I'm glad I tried it.
