My Rating: 4 Roses

A delightful historical romance, Destiny's Captive was a lovely read. With thrills, dark secrets, diverse settings and tons of sweet romance, this book was wonderful.

I really liked the different settings in this book. Set in the 1870s, we got a look at Cuba at the beginnings of another revolution, Florida, and California. It definitely made the book interesting and a different type of historical romance.

Pilar was a great heroine. She was very strong, resilient, and independently minded, but also kind and loyal to those she cared about. I thought she was a likable, lovely character.

Noah was also wonderful. He had a dark past that made him ruthless but, underneath that, he was sweet and kinder than he first appears to be. I thought it was sweet how devoted he was to Pilar, once they found themselves together, willing to face even the demons in his past for her sake. I thought he was great.

The romance was lovely. Pilar and Noah were a perfect match, both strong-willed and loyal to a fault. And, they definitely had some steamy chemistry between them turned the heat level up. I thought they were a wonderful couple.

The plot was well paced and I was kept interested the entire way through, though there were a few points where the plot stalled for a bit. But, it wasn't to the point of being a big problem. There were thrills and twists along the way, as well as a few surprising secrets. I enjoyed the story and the ending was lovely.

Destiny's Captive was a wonderful historical romance that I really enjoyed reading. It was a lovely book, with lush settings, dark secrets, and delightful romance. Romance lovers, this is a book worth checking out.
