Twenty-five-year-old Tristan Doran enjoys a life of incredible power and privilege. As a direct descendant of the Keepers--witches who have embraced dark magic--he defers to no one but his overlord, Lord Bosque Mar. For most of his life, Tristan has been kept out of the centuries-old Witches War, his bloodline too valuable to risk in battle.
But when a beautiful, young human Searcher named Sarah is captured and made a prisoner in his Irish castle, Tristan's infatuation with her flings him headlong into the fray. Captive and captor, unable to contain their longing, embark on a passionate, forbidden romance together--only to learn that their love is at the heart of a prophecy predicting the downfall of the Keepers' ages-old reign.
"Captive" explores the darker side of the richly imagined Nightshade universe, a fantasy world of powerful dark witches, shape-shifting wolf warriors, and fascinating history. The first of three erotic novels, "Captive" delves deeply into the fiery, illicit romance of two young lovers whose very desires invite their doom.
Praise for Captive
"Robertson delivers an intriguing plot...While the book is set in modern times, with references to Rocky Horror and blue jeans, Castle Tierney and its residents are vividly described in the most feudal and anachronistic terms, but the deliciously disconcerting blend only serves to enhance the tale." - Publishers Weekly
"Dark and deftly plotted, CAPTIVE seethes with sensuality and betrayal. A twisty, sexy ride!" -Sylvia Day, #1 New York Times Bestselling Author
