Beloved Captive by Kathleen Y'Barbo


Today I'm pleased to feature Kathleen Y'Barbo's Beloved Captive, Book Two in the Fairweather Key Series.

Here is the publisher's blurb:

In this sequel to Beloved Castaway, Emilie Gayarre is learning to accept her mixed race heritage while finding fulfillment in teaching children of the key. There is no denying the attraction between Emilie and the handsome young naval commander, Caleb Spencer, who is shadowed by his own flock of secrets. But if her heritage is found out, even greater things than his career are at risk. Enjoy this historical romance full of risk and redemption.

And now for my review:

In this follow-up novel, Emilie has to face the truth—she isn’t who she was raised to believe she is. And this will affect her entire life, limiting her future, or so she believes. She's a captive of her past. Throughout the novel, Kathleen used this "captive" metaphor in many ways, including having her hero capture her heroine. (In actuality, he was rescuing her.) Emilie has a beautiful experience on a deserted island with Caleb, but she believes her birth will keep her from any kind of relationship with him. One of my favorite aspects of Kathleen’s Fairweather Key Series is the location. If your imagination likes warm, tropical destinations and you enjoy romance, you’ll enjoy this wholesome Barbour novel.

Thanks for sharing your fiction with us, Kathleen. We wish you all the best!
