Julian Bennet, head of Griffin Force, finally finds love with Zaya Altes, but the day he buys her an engagement ring, international terrorist Nazer al-Raimi abducts her. Getting her back consumes him, yet it takes nearly six months to find her. The daring mission to extract her from a hidden prison in Afghanistan is successful, but Zaya has suffered during captivity. Though she’s grateful to Julian for breaking her out, she wants nothing to do with him. Before he can show her how much he still loves her, Nazer finds them and vows revenge. Can Julian keep Zaya safe and still stop Nazer once and for all?
Zaya Altes nearly gave up hope of ever being rescued, but when Griffin Force finally finds her, returning to life is harder than she imagined. While her feelings for Julian are as strong as ever, she feels too broken to recapture what they once had. Instead, Zaya jumps at a chance to trap Nazer, wanting vengeance for what she’s endured. As the final showdown draws near, however, Zaya will have to make an unimaginable choice to let Nazer close to her again. But when a shocking web of betrayal is uncovered in their own ranks, their one chance to capture him is compromised. Julian and Zaya will put everything on the line, but can they survive this ultimate test and finally reach for their chance at happiness?
The Capture quickly captures your attention from the start and does not stop until the last page. Julie Bellon is the master of a romantic suspense novel and I love every book she writes. The characters in The Capture are strong and the plot is very fast-paced and exciting. The pacing is perfect, once you think things start to settle down, the action starts right up again. Zaya is my hero. All she endured while she was a prisoner was terrible, but I loved how she was able to triumph over it. She had help with the amazing Julian. He also was a great character who did not stop until he was able to rescue Zaya, in more ways than one.
5 out of 5 stars. This is book 3 of the series, but can be read as a standalone. I am anxiously awaiting the next book in the series!
Free book alert! THE CAPTAIN (Griffin Force Book 2) is free this week, Amazon link.
