GIVEAWAY & BLOG TOUR: Captured by Desire by Kira Morgan (Book Review 2010-141)

Product Description

In 16th century Scotland, young Miss Florie Gilder runs away from her drunken foster father to find her real father and her noble heritage. Along the way, she is accused of theft, becomes a fugitive hiding in a forest, and is accidentally wounded by a handsome local huntsman. The huntsman--a Robin-Hood figure who poaches wild game from the landowner's estate to feed the starving poor--carries the beautiful maiden to a church where she is guaranteed 40 days of sanctuary from the law. During that time, he learns her true story, falls in love with her, and helps her in her quest, at the risk of his own life. Smitten with him, she worries more for his survival. But enemies of the state are seeking to overturn the Catholic royals, while a vicious noblewoman is out to destroy Florie.

About the Author

Kira Morgan is a third-generation California girl who is an avid traveler, the wife of a rock star, the mother of two fascinating children, and the beloved master of a pug named Worf.

LOVED IT

This is a fantastic story about a strong woman who finds herself and comes to terms with a rogue who is really a sweetheart in disguise.  I was also impressed that the romance (my wording for hot monkey love)  was worked in so that you wanted it and the story wasn't dependent on it.   I fell in love with Rane myself which is always a good sign for a hero in my book.  Florie as the female lead is just wonderful and strong. I loved the fact that it is Florie who wants revenge.   I wanted to be dashing through the forest with both of them.  Of course, you need an evil character to make the whole thing work and Lady Mavis certainly fills the bill.

  15. Hi everyone! Thanks for the comments. To answer Bethie's question, did I always want to be a writer...
    I always enjoyed writing, but I never planned on it as a career. (In college, I majored in Music!) It wasn't until I'd already started my family that I thought it might be fun to try to get something published.
    A word of encouragement--you're never too old to start writing!
