His Captive Princess by Sandra Jones Review @samhainpub

Release date: April 28, 2015
Publisher: Samhain Publishing
Genre: Historical (Medieval) Romance

Earned respect is sweet…but deserved revenge is sweeter.

Warren de Tracy was assured the Welsh village of Dinefwr would be an easy conquest, as would the widow of its fallen prince. Wedding her will appease the locals and win the respect of his liege, the usurper King Stephen.
Instead, Warren is ambushed, taken prisoner by a hooded Welshwoman with skin that glows like moonlight. If he must die at her hands, at least his honorable death will silence the whispers of disloyalty hanging over his name.

Princess Eleri has never seen a knight as stoic—and as eager to die—as Warren. She’d love to oblige the bastard, but something in his ocean-blue eyes stays her hand. Plus, suspicion nags at her, for the arrows that wounded him and killed his men are Norman, not Welsh.

A ghostly prophecy portends danger that thrusts the enemies closer together, where hate explodes into passion that won’t allow Eleri to surrender Warren to her vengeful clan. But returning him to his king breaks more than it mends…and for Warren, retaliation will be sweet, indeed.

Product Warnings
Contains a Norman warrior with a thirst for justice, a Welsh rebel princess with second sight and a steady bow hand, magical prophecies, and a plot of royal proportions.

My Rating: 4 Roses

His Captive Princess was a nice historical romance. I thought it was a lovely read and I enjoyed it.

I liked both of the main characters. Eleri was strong and capable and very protective over her loved ones. Warren was sweet, clever, and definitely a charmer. I thought both of them were great.

The romance was sweet. Eleri and Warren fell in love despite all the obstacles in their way and both would do anything for the other.

The plot was well paced and kept me interested all the way through. There was a twist along the way that actually managed to surprise me, in regards to who was behind all the problems. It was probably the last person I suspected. I enjoyed the story and the ending was lovely. Romance lovers, if you want a quick and enjoyable read, then you'll want to check this book out.
