What if the man who made love to you last night does not recognize you in the morning? True, you had been in disguise, but still…and what if this happened when you were fleeing for your life? Marilee Booth masquerades as an old woman and hires on as a cook aboard a ship headed to the colonies. She seeks to evade her stepmother, who has attempted to kill her. She is smitten by the handsome captain, who sees her merely as a part of the crew. On the last night at sea, when she doffs her disguise and decides to say goodbye to him while he sleeps, her life is forever altered. And now she may not survive…


Ms. Hachtel is a new author to me, and I thoroughly enjoyed her story. A fast paced Historical romance/Suspense set in America and England, both on and and on sea. A unique story in many ways with a few twists and turns. Well written with engaging and entertaining characters, danger, suspense, mystery, passion, secrets, and falling in love amidst danger and secrets.
An intriguing and interesting story. The main characters, as well as, the secondary characters will capture the reader’s hearts and their interest. I enjoyed “Captain’s Captive”, although, the title doesn’t go with the story, I don’t think. Still, it’s an exciting, thrilling and mysterious tale. Fans of mystery, suspense, passion, intrigue,romance and finding love, should really pick this tale, you won’t regret your choice. Engaging, entertaining, and interesting. An enjoyable and satisfying read. I look forward to Ms. Hachtel’s next grand adventure.
