Description
Captive by Joan Johnston
Lionel Morgan, Earl of Denbigh, had been betrayed once at the altar and vowed that no female would ensnare him again. Then Charlotte Edgerton burst into his life. He was to be her guardian. Her protector. But Denbigh wasn't prepared for this headstrong American-- or the passions she inspired on first sight. He knew only that he had to civilize her, present her at court, and Almack's then marry her off to the highest bidder. It wasn't until he nearly lost her that he realized the truth: She'd somehow reversed their roles and become the captor--of his heart. Full Synopsis

Since Joan Johnston is a favorite author it comes as no surprise that upon reading *Captive*, the first book in *The Captive Hearts Quartet*, for the third time, it was to find it an enjoyable, entertaining, simplistic read. Johnson is quite talented at telling a story that grabs the reader's immediate interest and keeps it throughout the story.
