The Captured Bride (Daughters of the Mayflower #3)


Title:  The Captured Bride (Daughters of the Mayflower #3)

Author:  Michelle Griep

Pages:  256

Year:  2018

Publisher:  Barbour Books

My rating is 5 out of 5 stars.

The first two books in the series are written by other authors with book #1, The Mayflower Bride written by Kimberley Woodhouse followed by The Pirate Bride written by Kathleen Y’Barbo.  Each book is a stand-alone story, though they follow a particular family line.  Each is uniquely written in a way to capture the heart and imagination of the readers.  In this third book of the series from Michelle Griep, I found myself a bit more involved in the story whether it was because of the romance, danger, intense moments or the faith of some unusual characters I can’t say for sure.  I only know that I truly was lost in the story as it was also filled with a couple different mysterious scenes that I wasn’t sure how they were going to be played out in the book.

Many times, I felt as if I was there viewing the action, danger, conversations and more.  It captured my mind, heart and emotions, especially the main female character named Mercy Lytton.  She was a very unusual woman who had gifts and abilities that aided her as a scout.  Yet, as she was becoming more aware of being a woman, the emotional turmoil intensified.

Elias Dubois is one of the male characters Mercy is sent on a mission with, and she cannot figure out who the real man is or if he even allows the real reason why he is sent on this mission to be fully known to anyone.  So, Mercy intensely watches him while they are traveling with a couple of others.  Her feelings are confusing her as they begin to reveal to her the hidden part of her own heart.  Both Elias and Mercy have a past they dare not speak of or show, but as the danger intensifies so does the need to know the real person they are facing multiple dangers with along with being sure they stay alive.

At the end of the story, readers will get to read very interesting Historical Notes.  I cannot wait for the next book to be released!  These are fascinating, historical stories that are both entertaining to read and engaging tales.  If you haven’t read any of the book, please catch up before the fourth book is released titled, The Patriot Bride, by Kimberley Woodhouse in August of this year.

This whole series is so worth reading! They excel at suspense and grabbing the heart of the reader, pulling them into the plethora of happenings in the book. The series has a total of four books that can be read as stand-alone stories though I found reading them in order helped enhance my understanding of the plot and characters.
The titles in order are: Convenient Lies, Twisted Lies followed by Generous Lies, which comes before this final novel I am sharing my thoughts on today.Robin weaves such a well-crafted plot that brings the reader into the story from the first page, and then keep turning the pages with all the twists and turns in the plot.I felt like I was right there observing what was happening around me even though I was reading the book.
Time flew by quickly and I was unaware of what was going on around me because I was lost in the pages!Right th…
