SUMMARY (50 words or less)
This story died for me when with the insta-love happened. Sorry not a fan. And there was nothing else really for me to grab hold of to enjoy the story. The ending ...more

Nash Kirkland is a screenplay writer, who likes the paranormal and horror in his movies, but he doesn’t believe in it, at all. For his next movie, he wants to investigate witchcraft, and witches, so he seeks out the local witch ...more
I like the idea of elementals and Morgana is in a sense an elemental. And she's also temperamental. It's was funny imagining her losing control over her tempe ...more
Sadly, it was just MEH to me.
I thought it was going to be fantastic. A real witch running a metaphysical shop who has real witch powers and cool pets and falls for a dude who isn't a witch and shows him her witch side... What's not to love?!!
Well, the characters were just flat and uninteresting. The story had ...more
I first read Captivatedby Nora Roberts perhaps about 10 or 12 years ago, in the omnibus edition of the Donovan Legacy stories. I remember loving this story of Morgana and Nash, mostly because I always enjoy romances where the two protagonists struggle to be together and need to resolve personal issues to do so. And also because #witchcraft.
Morgana is a witch. She's not the cackle-over-the-cauldron-while-she-mixes-potions kind of witch, but a modern witch who plays off her own eccentricities and ...more
Unfortunately I found the story of Captivated to be somewhat tedious. I expected things to happen, but nothing really did. Roberts writes extremely well, her prose is always a cut-above, although t ...more
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 skeptic didn't believe for a minute she was what she professed to be. But, as Morgana revealed herself to him, Nash found himself falli ...more
Morgana (where the hell does Roberts come up with these names?) seems very similar to Mia in Face the Fire. Then again, Roberts does tend to recycle the same characters, just in different settings. If the whole Donovans Series is going to be a regurgitation of the Three Sisters Series just on the west coast this time I'm going to be seriously annoyed.
Update: Okay, it's your typical NR book but I liked ...more
I adore Nora Roberts but I must say that this is my least favorite story I have read from her. I felt that Morganna lacked personality and Nash.. well he was a bit dry for me. He didn't catch my heart and I also felt that the problems in there relationship we ...more

Margana Donovan is a bright, successful witch who owns a small shop called Wicca.
Nash Kirkland is a swanky screen play writer who specializes in all things paranormal. He has his sights set on writing a new award-winner involving witches, so naturally, he turns to the infamous Morgana to aid him in his research.
I like the fact that Nora Roberts wrote Nash as a skeptic. I think it could have added a lot of heat and flare between the characters... but... it ...more
My summary for the book is ... it is very simple but classy. The story that is simple is what will keep us captivated for a long time. Thank you Nora for a wonderful book.
Captivated, with Nash and Morgana, was really REALLY good. Normally, the careers of romance lead's are barely mentioned even if they are out of the ordinary. In Captivated you got plenty of detail around Nash's job and i ...more
Morgana is indeed captivating. I admire her confidence and self-awareness where she knows who she is and is content with life. Her attraction to Nash unsettled her in a really good way and she had the same imprint on him. This story captured the best of both of them and t ...more
**A classic novel from the enchanting series *The Donovan Legacy*.**
Only the phenomenal Nora Roberts could have created the remarkable Donovan clan. Fascinating and irresistible, the mysterious Donovan cousins share a secret that's been handed down through generations -- a se...
Secret? Yeah right… whoever wrote that hasn’t actually read the book. The MC runs a shop called Wicca and the whole damn town knows she is a witch. In fact, the whole world, that is why Nash Kirkland has come to town; to meet her and pick her life for inspiration for his next scary movie script. Her cousin ...more
