I got this book as part of the "Dangerous Attractions" 10 book boxed set. This is a novella that accompanies the Decorah Security series.

The gist: Hannah is a nurse who has a psychic ability where she can "talk" to people (telepathically, sort of) while they are unconscious. Jordan is in a coma after someone tried to kill him. Hannah is hired to be one of his around the clock in-home nurses. She communicates with him psychically to help him come out of his coma and to figure out what happened to

Hannah, whilst not strictly a member of the Decorah team, has been appropriated for a mission. She has a talent where she can speak to people whilst they are unconscious. She has been drafted in to care for a wealthy businessman who was attacked within his estate and left for dead.

Jordan has been in a coma for weeks. But he somehow connects to a beautiful nurse who is trying to investigate who tried to kill him.

There was a bit of mystery to this story, trying to figure out who tried to kill Jord

What a good read! I thought I knew who the bad guy was from the start. I was very wrong. I loved the ending!

* * * * * 5 Star Review

Hannah was a very special nurse, she had a very special gift that only a couple fo people knew about it. When she is hired to help a very wealthy young man recover from an "accident" he suffers. Hannah knew this was a special case since she found herself feeling an attraction by Jordan when she saw his pictures. Hannah was putting her best in this case, since her feelings were also on the line.

Jordan knew someone close to him was trying to harmed him since they had killed

Hannah es una enfermera con un don: puede comunicase mentalmente con sus pacientes. Jordan es un empresario millonario que está en coma a causa de un accidente. Alguien sospecha que tal accidente no ha sido más que un intento de asesinato y contratan a Hannah para que averigue qué está pasando.

Tenía potencial pero se quedó en el camino. Mi principal problema con esta historia es que ha sido muy apresurada. Un romance muy forzado y muy porque sí, y un misterio y/o suspense que da la sensación de

When I first bought my Kindle three or four years ago, I eagerly downloaded a "bargain" - a book titled Dangerous Attraction, Romantic Suspense Boxed Set. I just never got around to reading it until now. It contains 9 full-sized novels as advertised. Not all were romantic suspense, however. Several were erotic novels rather than romantic ones; some contained little or no suspense. This was the last novel in that download. Christmas Captive was actually a short story or a novella. I am not a fan ...more

This book is part of the Ten Christmas Brides box set.
The story had a paranormal twist into the romance scene. Hannah, a nurse that could connect with her patients in an unusual way, was hired to care for tycoon Jordan; a man in a deep coma after a terrible fall. No one could explain why he was in a coma but this is where the story became interesting.
It is a fast paced story that takes you into the life of Jordan and his family who clearly had an agenda from the moment Hannah arrived at the hou

Short and sweet. Or rather, short and steamy. This was the last story in a Kindle bundle, and probably the best of the bunch. Our heroine is a psychic nurse recruited by a PI to help our hero, in a coma following a suspicious accident, recover his health and his memory of who attacked him.

It's a novella, so it moves quickly--although not quickly enough to preclude several sex scenes. Which, I have to admit, I tend to skim. A consequence of not reading a lot of romance these days.

The mystery was

This was a nice short story which I really enjoyed. The story is about a nurse who has been hired to help Jordan who is in a coma. With the possibility that someone in his family is trying to kill him Hannah has a challenge in front of her. I think that is what made the book interesting amd should have been extended out alot more in the story. It was a good story though doesnt really have a christmas theme, just a bit of reference to it. xx

Hannah and Jordan story was set up by somebody else. This is left hanging and the end of the story. She has special skills that will help him to save his life. He doesn't know her, but they have a relationship in their mind. I know of people who have those, only they are one way only. It has suspense and was OK. ...more

Two-haiku review:

Nurse comes to mansion
He's comatose but sexy
Why won't he wake up?

Decent novella
Better if it were longer
Nurse-patient-- icky

Not Your Traditional Holiday Story

Although this story takes place in December, it could just as easily be set in any month. The action has several unexpected turns, but the real value is the character development. It is a heartwarming story.

I always enjoy Rebecca York's stories. Just enough action with a touch paranormal and of course love.

The heroine carried the story well. This was a short story and it is packed with all the element to keep you reading.
Highly recommend this story.

This is the 1st book I read by Rebecca York. This book's story line was okay. I liked the way this book started. I liked the steamy scenes with Jordan & his nurse. I just wish this book was a romance suspense instead of a romance paranormal. ...more
Nice one - a brief novella of the Decorah Security Series. Somewhat paranormal but a steamy romance, too with a little suspense thrown in.

I enjoyed this more than I thought.
very short but all the character development was there. I was wrong trying to guess who did it.
I want more of this book.
