    An explosive romance

    I received a complimentary advance copy of this book to give a voluntary honest review. This review contains only my own thoughts and opinions of this book. Captive Angel was an absolute delight to read. The cover actually did not do the story any justice. It was bland compared to the action, drama, complex historical society and heated romance I lived through reading the book from start to finish. Though it was a bit of a bumpy ride the book really grew on me. Right from the get-go we were thrown right into the action. A woman waking up in a different timeline and on a ship filled with an all male crew and with no memory of how she got there. She gets mistaken for a boy having her hair up under a cap (although I found that part a bit unrealistic since hair doesn’t really define womanly features). The crew thinking she is a stowaway forces her to a sword fight that she unexpectedly wins at the cost of the crew discovering she is a woman. And that’s how Gabrielle met Captain Damion Sinclair. Their relationship was explosive to say the least. Immediately drawn to each other but both fighting it lead to some heavy fights and arguments. Sparks was practically flying when they were in each other’s vicinity, both from the anger and from the confined attraction. Their banter lead to difference of opinion which lead to arguments which in turn lead to heated kisses. The development of their relationship and romance was not only beautifully written but also the driving force of the story. The drama in their relationship really made it compelling as well as the disagreement and injustice of a woman’s place in society. The way women was looked upon at that time was a very defining aspect in the story and handled perfectly. It had a big part in forming the relationship and characterization. For Damion, being used to meek women and being in charge, meeting Gabrielle was like a fresh breath of air. She did not bow down or submit to men’s will. She wore breaches, knew how to sword fight and spoke her mind, which was what often lead to the battles of will between her and Damion. While Damion was not interested in committing to a submissive woman to begin with, handling Gabrielle’s defiance and strange behavior took him understandably some time getting used to. And Gabrielle hating being called endearments, being told what to do or to lose had to learn to once in a while step back and calm herself. This being the major factor in them both to finally stop fighting their feelings for each other and be together was a very clever way to implement the woman treatment of that time period and how they both fought for equal ground with each other. However much I loved Damion and Gabrielle together it slightly confused me as to how they came to that point. It felt like it too quickly went from them constantly butting heads to them accepting each other. There was no major resolution that really lead them there. It felt like they suddenly just moved past their differences and decided to get married. The marriage deal was also kind of confusing since I did not understand the reasoning behind it. I mean, I understood why it was beneficial for Gabrielle, but how was it a good deal for Damion? What did he get out of it and what was the point of getting married and then a divorce? That I had difficulty understanding some things leads me to think that it was the writing that caused the problem for me. Because although the development and storyline was beautifully written, the reason that I at times couldn’t fully follow what was happening was that the writing was a bit more ... sophisticated (if that’s the right word?) than I’m used to. I get why however, since it was made to match that time-set. And overall it did not take away anything from the amazing romance, drama, characters or world. I loved the ending. It was a great note to end the adventure on and even though I can’t get enough of the romance I do love a happily ever after. I hope that I get to see more in a sequel, whether it will be from Gabrielle’s point of view or someone else’s.
