The Sons of Gunnmarr have had a curse set upon them due to the greed of their father. All three have been sent far away, cursed to never die, but to live an endless life of solitude and loneliness. Which, is why after countless years Rugoff, the eldest of Gunnmarr’s sons is shocked to see a woman in the middle of his land. Shocked and pleased, he is determined to keep her and make the delectable woman all his.

I have a secret. I am a complete sucker for these kidnap-a-woman-and-make-her-yours kind of stories, whether is be aliens beaming me up to their space ships or viking taking me to their furs. I admit in real life if some overly beefed up guy tried to kidnap me, I may have a slightly different reaction, but for the sake of a few hours of fun and sexy times I lap it up.

Now, Captured isn’t a masterpiece, but I enjoyed it for what it was, a sexy, slightly cheesy PNR with pages full of hot sex-starved viking shagging. But, it did entice me to want to read the rest of the books to see if I will enjoy what the other brothers have to offer as well. I’m guessing more of the same, but I look forward to finding out.

Gosh, we all seem to be admitting our ages…and I hate that I am at the point in life when admitting my age is a “thing”…whodda thunk it? I was kind of hoping I would remain 21 forever. However, I have moved out of that New Adult stage of my life and am now strictly in the Contemporary Romance age zone of 28. I would prefer to be in an Urban Fantasy arena, but I don’t think I own enough black leather. However, I could probably squeeze into some PNR, I am fully prepared to give a horn job to my favourite demon, or suck on my sexy vamps…fangs and I am definitely up for some heavy petting with some fine looking shifters. Than again their’s always Sci Fi…I am fully prepared to do the right thing and help some poor alien race with more 6 packs than a supermarket repopulate their planet. Not that I am loose woman or anything.

Annnnnd I will stop myself there, before I start waxing lyrical about my love of historical romance and fantasy as well; no one needs to know about my elf fantasies. As you can tell, I adore and day dream about most romance genres, and my three big loves are 1) reading about romance 2) writing about romance and 3) talking about romance with my gals. Which, is why I love Under the Covers so much, I get all my bookish needs satisfied and don’t get judged when I talk about my favourite characters like they are real people. Which they are right?
