The Captive Heart by Michelle Griep is a love adventure story set in the wilderness of the American colonies. It opens in London, 1770 with Eleanor Morgan being dismissed from her governess position for her safety. Her only option is a governess position in the colonies. However, the plan goes awry and she ends up married to widow, Samuel Heath, in order to take care of his young daughter, Grace. Samuel, a frontiersman with a hidden past and a not so hidden enemy, is a dark and mysterious man. Eleanor must learn to live in the wilderness with its dangers at every turn as well live with a man she resists getting close to. When Eleanor hears the rumors about his past, she is confronted with the man who knows and the man people whispers about. Can she trust her heart and open her heart to this man? Or must she run when she has the chance?
The Captive Heart is a great love story set in the American colonies as the resistance to the British crown are brewing. It is a wonderful story in a historical setting. A romance which leave you on the edge of your seat. There were scenes which leave steal your breath away as the suspense, danger and romance heightens. You will love Samuel and Eleanor as they slowly fall in love and you will find yourself urging them to acknowledging their feelings and cheer when they finally do. I highly recommend The Captive Heart.
