Madison Frost is desperate to escape her life. Daughter of a prominent businessman, she has everything a girl could ask for. Except for a family who’s present in her life, and anyone to talk to outside the four walls of the prison she calls home. Madison dreams of one day leaving her life behind. She never thought being kidnapped is how it would happen.
Now she’s being held captive by a man who’s as frightening as he is sinfully gorgeous. Enormous, muscular, and filled with secrets, the man they call Ghost is an enigmatic mercenary, and Madison is trapped with him. She doesn’t know who hired him or why, but the more time she spends at his mercy, the more she realizes he’s not what he seems. Beneath his rough exterior lies an unexpected gentleness and a heart as broken and battered as her own.
But as Madison lets down her walls, Ghost holds tight to his, hiding secrets that could destroy everything.

‘Captive’ is quite possibly the most compelling and strongest case of Stockholm Syndrome I’ve ever read, yet strangely moving at times. Both Madison and Ghost – in a strange twist of events – find themselves in more similar situations than they care to be, and it’s in there that their connection is forged. I’m not entirely sure if a captor would really confide in his captive as ghost had done, but hey, fiction makes that plausible, closing distances that can’t be closed in reality, isn’t it?
