"An unusually dark and moving Regency-era love story between a tortured nobleman and a young widow." - Shelf Awareness for Readers

"Burrowes deftly builds the romantic tension amid lovely layers of domestic tranquility and honest conversations... [an] engrossing story." - Publishers Weekly

"This is a beautiful story of redemption and love's power over evil, but even more so it is a story that wrenches readers' emotions, yet leaves them utterly satisfied. Let Burrowes lift your heart." - RT Book Reviews

"The popular, prolific Burrowes begins a new series with her signature mix of emotional intensity, lush storytelling and intelligent writing... Smart, compelling and captivating." - Kirkus

"Unique and well-written... the characters and their love make for a memorable romance." - Booklist

"Overall I was really loving this book. I'm going to check out more of the Captive Hearts series when they start coming out. This is the first book I've read by Burrowes and I will be checking out more as soon as I can.

"I found that I could not put down THE CAPTIVE. The romance was poignant and touching, and the threads of the events happening were woven together by Grace Burrowes to form an emotional, well paced book, one of my very favorites by her." - Fresh Fiction

"This book was SO well written. The timing of events was perfect, the romance was perfect (and HOT) and the resolution was perfect." - Buried Under Romance

"Burrowes nimbly guides readers from darkness to healing and love in this promising beginning." - Shelf Awareness for Readers

"This was my first time reading a Grace Burrows book but it definitely not be my last! " - Monlatable Book Reviews

" The Captive is spellbinding and is a definitive exclamations of love and life, but Grace Burrowes does it in a quietly elegant way. The writing is amazing, the vision/purpose of the story startlingly clear, and the characters are just ... Wow. Truly, there are no words." - Love Saves the World

"I can always count on Grace Burrowes to deliver a beautifully written book with compelling characters. In The Captive, she adds a lovely, evocative story of lost souls finding their way." - SOS Aloha

"Overall, it's a touching and charming romance about two people who are getting a second chance at happiness. It's easy to fall in love Christian and Gilly which only makes their HEA all the better. Burrowes gives us a lovely introduction to new series, and I'll definitely be keeping my eyes out for the rest." - Book Munchies

"WOW! Another grand slam by Grace Burrowes. I really ... REALLY enjoyed this historical romance. I love that Grace writes mature," lived life a little and now much wiser" kind of characters. I think this is the big reason why her stories seems to flow so naturally and always before I know it, I am finished the book. The believability is front and centre as is the ability to feel sympathy and compassion. I always FEEL FEEL FEEL reading a Grace Burrowes book and I absolutely love that. I also adore that she always seems to write the perfect match for her often conflicted characters and somehow they always seem to break the mold and become one of a kind!" 5 out of 5" - The Reading Cafe

"Grace Burrowes is back in very fine form with The Captive. There is a tortured hero, a damaged heroine, and a hidden enemy. Throw in a daughter who will not talk and romance to complete the mix. I loved Gilly. She endured a horrible marriage but emerges strong and full of empathy. Christian needs someone like Gilly for himself and for his daughter." - Mixed Book Bag
