Captured....Heart and Soul features three great stories and is very well written.
In A Night in Aphrodite’s Panties, Ashlynn Monroe has created a wonderfully fun and loveable character in Zoe Lane. She had me laughing one minute and cheering Zoe on the next. As Zoe decides to dive into the book her sister pass off on her as a gift, she is shocked and at somewhat at a stage of shock when she encounters the goddess Aphrodite. At first Aphrodite is extremely mad and tired of mortals taking her for granted. She decides to let Zoe switch places with her for the night. In the process they both discover things about each other that they never knew.
Kayden McLeod, draws you in to the timeless love story of Jacobus and Petronia. Their love story is so heartfelt and makes you truly believe in soul mates and happily ever after. I truly enjoyed The Martyr of the Flaminian Gate. As you start your journey with Jacobus and Petronia in the Roman Empire, you see the hardships they must face with their beautiful daughter, Aelia. Together, father and daughter jump to the current year to find the struggles Petronia faces alone, while she is fighting to remember what has happened and who she is. But with the support of Jacobus, she will be able to rekindle a love that was once considered lost.
In, Valentine Arabesques and Adagios, by JT Seate, you are drawn into an excellent story where life can be so close to art. Danielle is dance instructor, who finds herself so very attracted to her younger student Matthew. When they start preparing for the upcoming dance production, their passions ignite and spiral toward a sensual dance of intimacy that will have you daydreaming for days to come. When Danielle ends up in Spain, she comes to terms with these things happening in her life that can change everything she once knew, to something she could never have dreamed of.
