REVIEW: Love's Captive by Myra Nour (Book 1 ~ Volarn Chronicles)

Title: Love’s Captive
Author: Myra Nour 
Publisher: New Concepts Publishing 
Series: Volarn Chronicles I
Genre: Sci-fi, Romance, Explicit 
Length: 322 pages 
Source: BTS Tours
Buy: New Concepts | Amazon | Smashwords

When Serena awakes, after a close and unpleasant encounter with some sort of stun gun, she very quickly learns that resistance is futile and escape only a yearned for dream. She, and the other Earth women Serena meets aboard ship with her, have been captured by the Moyds, interstellar merchants ..their mission, to procure fertile wives for the men of Volarn, where their race is endangered due to the wide-spread sterility of their own women. Learning this is at least some relief to the captured women, but Serena is disgusted to realize that they are nothing in these men’s eyes but baby makers. Regardless, she knows she has no choice but to face the fate that awaits her with as much dignity as she can muster. Once they arrive on Volarn, Serena learns that her assessment has not been entirely accurate. Using their power crystals in the Tarthra Ritual, the warriors approach the women with their crystals to find the mate most suited to them..a woman to love who can love them. Serena is chosen to become King Rhamus’ queen, but, just as she feels herself weakening to Rhamus’ romantic, passionate nature, Rhamus’ enemy, Xarath, abducts her. Rating: Contains explicit sex, graphic language and some violence.

Love’s Captive is book #1 in the Volarn Chronicles I can honestly say that I loved the story within the pages of this book (and who doesn’t want a book with a beautiful unicorn?? I mean . . . how can that not grab you? – Have I ever mentioned I collect alicorns of all kinds? lol).

Just imagine waking up but as a captive, heading to an alien world . . . That’s what Serena did one fateful morning and things got more interesting from there. Now, before you jump to the conclusion that the Volarn are evil, their race is dying but human genetics are compatible so there is a pseudo-reasonable excuse for their actions. The other things to note is that the male you are matched to is perfect for you, maybe not for everyone, but for you . . . Yes!

Now enters the enemy of the Volarn, Xarath . . . who kidnapps her. Talk about ‘a girl just can’t get a break.’

The story is within a well-crafted world imagined by Myra and brought to life in Love’s Captive and it’s sequel, Heart of the Dragon (Which I also LOVED). The characters as so vivid you feel like you really know then and are invested in their lives. The writing is brilliant and engaging and real. And, it’s HOT, lol.

If you love romance I suggest you run right out (or click 😉 ) and grab a copy of a truly wonderful read.

Myra Nour grew up reading s/f, fantasy, and romance, so she was really thrilled when these elements were combined in Futuristic Romances. She enjoys writing within all these elements, whether the hero is a handsome man from another planet, or a tiny fairy from another dimension.

Myra’s background is in counseling, and she likes using her knowledge to create believable characters. She also enjoys lively dialogue and, of course, using her imagination to create other worlds with lots of action/adventure, as well as romance. She uses her handsome husband as inspiration for her heroes – he is a body builder, a soldier, and has a black belt in Tae Kwon Do.

    Unicorns are beautiful mythical creatures! The book sounds like a wonderful start to a new fantasy series.
