Product Description

From the Back Cover

She was the most irresistible treasure of all . . .

Dominic LeVeq, the most notorious privateer ever to command the high seas, has just captured a coveted prize: a British frigate. On a dangerous mission against the Crown, Dominic should be thinking only of his ship's safety. But the rebel captain is utterly entranced by Clare Sullivan, the stunning slave on board. Consumed by desire, desperate to have her, Dominic offers Clare her freedom in exchange for a forbidden night in his bed—a night he assures her will be most pleasureable indeed.

Clare believes that Dominic is nothing more than a seductive rogue used to getting what he wants. But she too feels a tantalizing passion between them, and so she submits to just one night of bliss. She'll soon realize that Dominic has captured more than her body. He's captured her heart . . . and she doesn't want him to ever let go.

5.0 out of 5 stars More magic from Ms Jenkins! 1 Oct 2010
By Voracious for Books VINE VOICE
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
When Dominic LeVeq is left out of his father's will by his unscrupulous stepmother and stepbrother because he is the son of his White father's beloved black mistress, and not his hated wife. Sharing a love of the sea, after his father's death he became a pirate plundering ships carrying gold and with an intolerance for the evils of slavery, attacking slave ships and freeing their living cargo. When his ship, `Marie' attacks a British frigate, amongst the gold onboard are spoilt southern belle, Violet Sullivan, her brother Victor, and Violet's personal property; Clare Sullivan, stolen as a child by slavers and brought to America's south. Dominic is shocked that given the option of regaining her freedom that the lovely Clare would rather remain with the devil she knows than willingly come with him. So he throws her over his shoulder and drags her kicking and cursing him in three different languages on board his ship. To the amusement of his crew; bets are placed on how soon Clare will fall into Dominic's bed. But they all warm to her and soon both the crew and Dominic realise that Clare is a lady and no one's fool. Her `owner' educated her as a jest and was chagrined to find that her property was more able and intelligent than she was. When Dominic finds out why Clare is desperate to return to Savannah even after having tasted freedom, he is intrigued and determined to help her. But Clare has good reason to not want to put her trust in a pirate, charming and handsome as he may be.

This book is a prequel to the other novels featuring members of the LeVeq family and is set during the American civil war and features on the role of blacks during that period of history. I loved this book and didn't want it to end.
My only small annoyance was with the artist who should have exchanged the skin tones and hair of the people on the cover to reflect the description given by the author.

5.0 out of 5 stars Captivated 1 Oct 2009
By Cathy D. Atchison - Published on
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
Beverly Jenkins new release, Captured, has completely capitivated my heart. This book is a thrill a minute and I am still riding high after having read it. In this book Ms. Jenkins returns us to the House of LeVeq. Only this time, she takes us where it all began. The book starts off with a bang when Clare is captured by the pirate, Dominic LeVeq. Ms. Jenkins is one of the best writers I have read and especially when it comes to her ability to make you feel like you are actually experiencing what is happening in her books. She is very descriptive of everything: the period, the clothes, the ships, life on the ship, the life of a slave, and all those personalities. And sometimes, it can be ever so subtle, but you get the point. The scenes read like a movie, they are so visual. And let's not forget about Clare and Dominic. I absolutely adored their love story. If you are looking for a book that has history, romance, adventure, action, and/or suspense, this book has it all. Ms. Jenkins has done it again, another hit!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Caught up! 29 Oct 2009
By Akima Rolle - Published on
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
Dominic LeVeq a lovechild of a Frenchman and a slave. When Dominic's father dies his half brother Eduard and his stepmom conspired to cheat him out of his inheritance. Eduard wants to take all his father's workers and make them slaves,but Dominic can't have that he steals Ed's boat and races to save the 300 workers.

While Dominic has started a new life his main mission in life is to rescue as many slaves as possible. He and his crew take over a British frigate. On board he finds a beautiful slave by the name of Clare Sullivan. He steals Clare from her owners and take her to his Free Cuban island. Clare doesn't want to be free, because her children are still enslaved in Savannah.

Dominic makes Clare love him and soon she wants to stay,but not without her children and that's where the action begins. This was one of Beverly Jenkins' best books, you get a great history lesson, action, and romance. Great job Ms. Jenkins

5.0 out of 5 stars A Very Pleasant Surprise! 10 Jan 2010
By M. Turner - Published on
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
I've shied away from reading Black romance novels for a while now because something seemed lacking to me (definitely not the sex, that was abundant in spades). I'm Black, so it's disappointing when you want to read a real novel about people you can relate to. What was missing for me was a strong plot and well developed characters. It's a shame I hadn't stumbled upon Beverly Jenkins' work earlier. I love historical fiction, it's my favorite genre in literature. So to be able to enjoy a well-written and researched historical plot involving rich characters and detailed descriptions of the beauty of the caribbean islands was a treat. The eroticism was still there, but in a tasteful way that did not overpower the entire story or use really awkward or even crude descriptive words. You'll fall in love with the handsome and fearless Dominic, the beautiful and intelligent Clare, Gaspar, Esteban, Anna, Sarah, Ben and the others because...that's exactly what you're supposed to do when you're reading a great book: fall in love with the characters!

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful Book 23 Oct 2009
By L. Curtis - Published on
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Along with everyone else, I love . . . love Beverly Jenkins's historical novels and this is the best one yet. The charecters pull you in from the first page and they are written with such depth and emotional that you really want to see how they manage to attain their HEA. This is a masterful story. I loved every minute of it. And ditto the comment where Dominic tells Clare 'I want to kiss you until the sun turns into the moon,' comment. ****SWOON*******
