Sarah McKerrigan - Captive Heart

A warrior born and raised, Helena of Rivenloch is desperate to save her youngest sister from a fate worse than death: marriage.

After trying--and failing--to murder the groom, she does the next best thing. She takes his right-hand knight, the dashing Colin du Lac, as her hostage. And discovers that her new “captive” is chivalrous to the core, highly amused by her behavior, and far more dangerous than any warrior she has ever fought.

Du Lac is soon trading quips instead of sword thrusts, exchanging glances that turn to kisses, and laying siege to Helena’s untried passions. But du Lac has no use for a warrior wife, and Helena will not wed. How long, then, can they revel in the pleasures of the bedchamber before they forge an alliance between their warring hearts?

Comment: This is the second book by this author that I've read. Once again, it was amusing to see some of the situations described and the clash of wills of both main characters. I didn't like it as much as the first, Lady Danger, because I didn't find as much sympathy for the main characters as I did for the ones in the previous book. In this one, Helena and Colin did have some interesting attitudes and thoughts, but I don't think there was much improvement in their behaviour.

They did grow up, but only as a way to conclude the story, not from a real learning. I'll eventually read the final one, but I'm not sure when.

Hopefully the plot will live to its promise and be very good.
