Brighton Walsh ~ 4 1/2 and 5 Star Reviews
St. Martin’s Griffin
Madison Frost had everything; more money that she could ever spend, a beautiful mansion, servants and a prominent, absent father and an alcoholic mother who depended on Madison for everything. She hated her life and desperately wanted to get out. Then her wish came true, but not in the way she imagined. Madison was kidnapped.
Ghost knew as soon as he had captured Madison and took her to the secluded cabin that something was not right. This was not the type of job that he usually took, but he needed the money so he could get him and his brother out of the kind of life they had been living. And no one was supposed to get hurt. He was just to hold her for a few days, get the money, and return her unharmed to her big fancy house. But as things started going south and Ghost was forced to keep Madison longer, he discovered that she was not the spoiled, rich brat that he thought and Madison discovered that Ghost was not the maniacal giant kidnapper/killer that she had first thought.
At first glance, the reader may think this book is about Stockholm Syndrome, but Captive is so much more than that. Yes, Madison falls in love with her kidnapper and vice versa, but this is a story of two damaged souls finding each other under the most difficult of circumstances and coming out whole on the other side. Ghost can be a little hard to like at the beginning, but as you get to know him, you realize that he’s absolutely nothing like what he portrays. And Madison is definitely a force to be reckoned with. Brighton Walsh has penned a beautiful love story that will pull at the reader’s heartstrings.
