Captured by Love

Captured by Love by Jody Hedlund

Synopsis:

It is 1814 and the British have taken hold of Mackinac Island and its fort, forcing American residents to swear an oath of loyalty to the British crown in order to retain their land. Pierre Durant is a voyageur–a fur trader who left his family home to find freedom and adventure. He’s been gone five years and when he returns, his family’s farm is at the mercy of the British invaders.

Torn between the life he’s grown used to and guilt over leaving his brother and mother, he’s drawn back into the loyalist fight against the British–and into a relationship with Angelique Mackenzie, a beautiful local girl who’s been befriended by the daughter of the British commander. As tensions mount and the threat of violence increases, both Angelique and Pierre must decide where their loyalties rest, how far they will go to find freedom, and how much they will risk to find love.

Thoughts:

Captured by Love is an excellent historical romance! I found myself immediately drawn to the beautiful cover, and as I began reading I was quickly captivated by the story.

Jody Hedlund paints a vivid picture with her words and brings this story, its characters, and the setting to life. Although it is a work of fiction, many of the events and characters are based on the actual history of Mackinac Island. This perfect blend of fact and fiction, coupled with an achingly tender romance, makes this a must read for fans of historical romance!

Captured by Love stirred my emotions and left me eager to read more from Jody Hedlund!

 

I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review, which I have given.
