Fascinating and irresistible, the mysterious Donovan cousins share a secret that’s been handed down through generations — a secret that sets them apart from ordinary beings. His interest in her was purely professional . . . Or so he told himself. Nash Kirkland had sought out the alluring Morgana Dovovan to help him research his latest screenplay, though the hard-headed sceptic didn’t believe for a minute she was what she professed to be. But, as Morgana revealed herself to him, Nash found himself falling under her bewitching spell. Nash had never trusted his feelings and always kept them in check. So how could he be sure the irresistible passion he felt for Morgana was real and not just some conjurer’s trick? -Goodreads.
Captivated is one of those rare books that you can enjoy without using even a tiny cell of your brain ( and I mean it in a good way!) The story progresses easily and even though the outline is way too predictable, the writing keeps one engaged. I read this book in 2 days, just cause I was being lazy. You can finish it in a day very easily. It’s a great break from mind-bending thrillers and complicated love stories.
It might seem strange but it really made me feel that the world is really a good place to live in. And I, for one, really believe in magic and stuff, so it was very much like a fairy tale for me and I enjoyed it a lot.
The love of Morgana and Nash really felt pure and will somehow make you believe that love is really a magical thing and can really really change a person!
I will recommend Captivated to any reader who’s tired of whatever they are reading and need a quick break to relax.
