More About the Author
Typical New Zealanders, Shelley and her husband left home for their big OE soon after they married (translation of New Zealand speak - big overseas experience). A year long adventure lengthened to six years of roaming the world. Enduring memories include being almost sat on by a mountain gorilla in Rwanda, lazing on white sandy beaches in India, whale watching in Alaska, searching for leprechauns in Ireland, and dealing with ghosts in an English pub.
While travel is still a big attraction, these days Shelley is most likely found in front of her computer following another love - that of writing stories of romance and adventure. Other interests include watching rugby (strictly for research purposes), cycling, baking bread and curling up with a good book.

This is the my first book by Shelley Munro and I enjoyed it and I'm looking forward to reading more from her. With that being said I felt that I was missing out on something in the beginning of the book. The first few pages of the book grabbed my attention and I thought, oh this is going to be so good and heart wrenching. I felt for Camryn and the loss of her husband and her never ending guilt. Then the kidnaping and the aliens and it started to lose me. I felt a little lost because there was no world building and thought maybe this was a spinoff of a pasted series. But Ryman and Camryn's characters just kept pulling me along. Ryman was this hot, sexy and very possessive alpha male and Camryn was a mess of a guilt ridden alcoholic with very little care for herself. But through out the book she grew stronger and more self assured.
Ryman has been exiled from his home plant for murder and now his brother has offered him up a challenge bet him at the Hell Horse Race and hell hand over the info on who the real killer is. He knows nothing of training horses so they come up with the idea of kidnapping a man from Earth well known for training race horses. Only they kidnaped the wrong person, Camryn. She insists they keep her and not go back for her brother. She won't allow them to take him from his wife and child and have them suffer the way she has since her husband Gabriel died. Little does she know what's going to happen the more time she's around the intriguingly sexy cat shifter, Ry and her unrelenting guilt she feels for her fading thoughts of Gabriel.
One of the other problems for me was some of the wording Ms. Munro used. She'd keep the meanings of the words but spell it different or shorten them. At first it was troubling but then I kind of got used to it.Read more ›
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.Read more ›
Camryn has spiraled into a deep alcoholic depression since her husband died and when she’s kidnapped by aliens she’s both terrified and fascinated by Ryman but she’s sure he’s done something weird to cause her attraction. The reader can’t help but get caught up in all the tension and expectation that flows through this story from beginning to end and the chemistry between Cam and Ry explodes from the pages into some frequent scorching hot sex scenes but the relationship is not an easy one, especially as Cam wants to return home. Warning: the characters are strong, compelling, full of attitude and really demand the reader’s attention at all times and the fast paced and smooth flowing plot ensures that the characters get their wish with lots of suspense, excitement and passion.
There is never a dull moment among this crew as they train a hell-horse to race in a disturbing derby all while barely dodging lethal attacks against their persons and Ryman’s brother manages to cause a lot of strife and mayhem as well. Vivid imagery brings the story and fascinating world to life as the well written scenes and details capture the imagination and the suspense and events keeps readers on their toes with lots of action, excitement and some unexpected twists.
This is an edgy and sexy world full of intriguing characters, interesting and unique elements to keep things spicy and different. I was completely enthralled with the story from the very beginning and I can’t wait to be kidnapped by Ryman and his crew again so I can find out what happens next.
