Maya Blake is alive and well and on the run. For her, "well" means no tubes in her arms, no electrodes on her skin, and absolutely no lab coats in sight. A werewolf attack victim who has become a powerful psychic, Maya is the property of a government that wants to keep her locked in a research hospital. Her escape is a desperate attempt to keep her younger sister, a full-fledged werewolf, from the scientists' clutches, but she underestimates the long arm of the law.
Adam Shepherd is a hunter. Plain and simple. Though there's nothing as complicated as capturing creatures that have claws that can shred skin quicker than an Lycanthropy carrier can spread disease. Werewolves are his specialty. In a world being taken over by a monstrous disease, survivors might hold the key to mankind's survival in their veins. The initial deadly strain of airborne Lycathropy killed his family. Werewolves massacred his adopted family a year after that. If he can neutralize pack after pack in the name of a cure, then he's fulfilling two driving needs with one urgent mission.
Unfortunately, not all fugitives have fangs.
Maya doesn't control her clairvoyant visions. When she's stunned by intimate premonitions about the hardened, no-nonsense leader of ruthless mercenaries as they capture her, she can hardly control herself. Her hands might somehow know the feel of his smooth, muscular skin. Her lips might know his taste. But her heart knows he must be her enemy. How can the man who threatens to take away her and her sister's freedom ever be her lover?
With extremely hot erotic love scenes, gripping plot twists, and even a happily ever after Ms. Hancock is at the top of her game. Having read her work before, I wasn’t sure what to expect with her foray into erotic romance, but Captured is a fast read. One you will enjoy, even if you’re not really into the genre. Set in a future world where a disease has turned the human population into werewolves, psychics and prey, I was instantly transported into this foreign world which is my own. Wonderful, definitely one you’ve gotta read.
