"My Captor, My Love" by Leah Matheny

My Book Summary : Recently Danielle (Dani) lost some weight making men notice her more. So, when on vacation in Mammoth Lakes with her friend Dani never expects to have men fighting over her, let alone kidnap her from the horseback riding group she was with to take her back to their village.

Throughout the week it takes to get to the village Dani comes to realize she is deeply attracted to one of her captors, Honon, but no matter what happens between them Dani is determine to find a way to escape him and his friends. She isn't able to escape before they make it to their village but by that time, her feelings for Honon have grown even more. Nevertheless, misunderstandings happen leaving Honon mad at Dani and his friends not wanting to believe anything they have to say. As time passes at the village even Dani still misses her friends in her normal life and wants to go home, she learns that she likes the village and the people who live there. Dani starts thinking that if she could just change Honon's mind about her (with the help of his parents and friends) she might be willing to stay there permanently. However, will she ever be able to get back together with Honon, will he ever believe her, and will Dani ever be able to stay in the village without the need to want to go back to everything she use to know??

My Book Review : 4 out of 5 stars, this story is a wonderful and unique take as a contemporary romance, that deals with Native American's kidnapping women for their village based in the twenty-first century. I really liked how the plot is mostly from Dani's perspective and then at the point when you really might hate Honon you get his point-of-view, pretty much redeeming himself in my book. After read the 'Author Book Description' I never expected this book to have the twists that it did or to enjoy it as much as I did!

Dani is a really inspiring character because of the way she "grows" throughout this novel. Honon is very passionate but at times I really hated him. However, the village, Honon's friends, and Dani's best friends are who really livened up this novel making it so you just have to finish it!! I cannot wait to see where Liwanu & Karen's relationship will go in "My Perfect Man." Also, I hope Kosumi will find someone for him soon too since he is such a sweet character. ♥

I recommend this novel to anyone who would like to read about Native American's in a contemporary twenty-first century romance!! =0)

Book Teaser(s) :
He walked to the fire, grabbed food, and brought some back to me. But I just sat there, not able to eat while I kept looking all around me to make sure Meanie wasn't near. Every once in awhile Honon nudged me and pointed to my food, so I'd take a bite; but my head whipped around every time I heard something. The men just sat talking. I was almost finished eating when I heard a twig snap somewhere behind me and I just about jumped in Honon's lap. He put his arm around me and rubbed my arm, giving comfort.
I never saw Meanie return. Honon turned to lie down and brought me down with him, holding me close to him. I finally felt safe. ~ within Chapter 4
“Dani, you seem like a very intelligent young woman,” Sitala said, taking hold of my hands. “You also seem to be blocking out the fact that you can never leave. You will spend the rest of your life here.”
Panic rose instantly, and I stood up and started walking backwards. “ can‟t do this to me. I have a job I have to get back to, I have friends...I have a life!” I had to get out of there. My head started to spin. ~ within Chapter 7
