Captive Heart is a story of bondage…not in the current erotica sense of dom and sub, but in the more full sense of enslavement of one person to another, or of emotional control of one over another.
The story enfolds in a time 1500 years ago, in a place when slavery was just beginning to be reviled and made illegal by the brehon law—on the Ireland of St. Patrick.
In this third Dawn of Ireland novel, Caylith uncovers the history of her mother's past captivity by slave dealers, all the while being shackled by the unseemly passions of her husband's own kinsman.
Following clues from a tortured, almost incoherent story, Caylith and Liam embark on a mission, joined by close friends, to save a group of captive women. They travel to the desolate north shores of what is now Co. Donegal and to the rugged, remote Tory Island made impregnable by a nest of treacherous rocks.
Even if she can somehow free the captives, Caylith needs to find and confront the one hidden in plain sight, the traitor in their midst who’s making his fortune from trading in slavery. Just as critical to her, she must also slip the manacles of the man who has tried to bind her to his fevered heart.
