If you read the first book than you are familiar with Alex and Libby. Alex is an American Business man who travels to Scotland for business where he meets Libby. Libby manages her family’s hotel in Scotland and is very tight with her family. Alex has to go back home to America and that means leaving Libby behind. I had the pleasure of reading book 1 and could not wait to see how the character’s story would continue. If you remember there was still an “unresolved issue”

Can this Author's writing get any better? And the story was even better than the first book.

This book picks up where we were left hanging in Book 1.

The Book tugged on my emotions. I felt Happiness, Sadness, Betrayal, Excitement, Anxiousness and Anger.

And just when you though i am falling deeper for Alex, he went and did the unthinkable.
Oh and Michael turns out to be a very likable character.

This Book will not disappoint and will make you lose sleep. I can't wai

“You are perfect for me in every way possible. Don’t doubt that. And don’t ever doubt how I feel about you. I love you, and I won’t ever tire of telling you that.”

THE BOOKS IN THIS SERIES KEEP GETTING BETTER. So when Karen asked me if I would like a chance to read an early copy of He’s Captured My Trust, there was absolutely no way that I was turning her down. After the cliffhanger that I nearly tripped over at the end of He’s Captured My Heart, I could not wait to read the continuation

There reunion is very welcome to the reader as you feel the sparks of desire off them straight away.

The second book in this series is a seamless continuation of Alex and Libby's story. Fighting for their love and overcoming adversity across the ocean between them. The ups and downs of the story had me holding the characters close to my heart, and the story itself was really well written. A few blanks I would have liked filled in on but know this may come in the next book of the series.

With Libby is coming to grips after her attack and Alex sees the true extent of the aftermath upon his return.

'He's Captured My Trust' is the second book in the 'Captured' Series by Indie author Karen Frances. The story continues to follow Alex and Libby after a somewhat heartbreaking close to her debut novel. Alex has business to attend to in the states and he's left Libby to recover both physically and now emotionally while she continues to run the family hotel in beautiful Scotland. When Libby travels to see Alex she finds out that she has more than just work-related business to contend with and it m ...more

This book was a terrific read. It has definitely captured my attention. It is so incredibly well written that I just fell effortlessly into the story and was instantly hooked. The difficulty in putting this book down factor is a solid 10! I kept my reader with me and any free moment I had I was nose deep in this book. The story is absolutely intriguing and the characters had me caring about them, and sharing their feelings. Oh the feelings! This book had me on a crazy emotional journey,

This is the continuation of Alex & Libby’s story from He’s Captured My Heart.

Both giving their long distance relationship a chance, with other people being their obstacles and making it hard for Libby to completely give Alex her trust. In the end, their love for each other seals the deal for them to compromise & for Libby to not just give Alex her heart but her trust. Overcoming all the challenges that was thrust in their direction, they both fought hard for their love. Seeing Libby becoming mo

He’s Captured my Trust picks up a few months after the first book in the series. Just like the first one, this was a book that I didn’t want to put down. Libby and Alex really have amazing chemistry and getting to see their relationship grow even more from the first book was great. In this second book we get a closer look at Alex’s family and get a glimpse into what his life is like in America. Of course nothing can go perfectly for these two and lots of drama ensues once Libby joins Alex in New ...more

I liked this book, a lot. When I first started reading I thought this would be the typical romance story. It wasn’t.

Alex saves Libby from Jeff, her ex-boyfriend and they fall in love. Libby gets left behind in Scotland and the two talk and text until Libby visits Manhattan for a visit.

I love how hard Alex works to win her love; there is nothing he won’t do. Of course, the two go through the usual rough spots, but in their case there is another reason why it is even tougher. Libby’s temper doesn

Once again the author has managed to produce a story which was well written and which held my attention all the way through.

Libby and Alex are meant to be together, but living on different continents will always make that difficult. Alex organises a surprise trip for Libby to New York, and the loved up couple reunite again, leading to some hot scenes.

However, as expected, all is not rosy as some conspire against the couple. This leads to some shocks throughout the story. The limits these people

I had forgotten how good Karen's books were until I started reading this.
I got straight back into the story of Alex and Libby's short but hot relationship.
This story is very well written and you will fall in love with the characters. Alex is a rich arrogant man who is used to getting what he wants, Libby is a hard working women who is a bit feisty and has locked her heart away so that it doesn't get broken again. Watch their love and trust for each other grow only to be shattered. You need to

After reading book 1, I wasn't sure what to expect with book 2. Book 1 was great and left you wondering what was in store for Libby and Alex... Book 2 follows in nicely from book 1 and the story flows. Alex ans Libby are so in love, but trouble and the past just haunts them. They work hard to overcome family problems and past history that still threatens their future. Book 2 ends leaving you wondering what us going to come out of book 3. I look forward to the release of He's Captured My Soul.

He’s Captured My Trust picks up where He’s Captured My Heart ends. Karen Frances’ writing makes you feel all the love, heartache, passion and joy. This book is hot sexy read but it doesn’t over shadow the story of Alex and Libby. They go through so much and you can’t help but want things to work out for them. I can’t wait for the next book!!! I highly recommend this book, this series and especially this author.

I could not put this book down. As soon as I finished the first one I had to get this one. I had to know what happened. My emotions were right with Libby the whole time. I can't wait for the next part.
I can't wait for the rest of Alex an Libby's story. I couldn't put it down

I love these two! I was so happy when Libby went to New York to visit Alex, I just wish that they didn't have to deal with all of the drama that comes with being Alexander Matthews. But what's a good romance novel without a little drama and angst, lol.
Watching how Libby and Alex deal with everything life throws at them makes them such a lovable and believable couple. I can't wait to see what's in store for them in the next book!

This is the 2nd book in this amazing series and is a continuation of Alex and Libby’s tale. Alex takes Libby to New York to meet his family and friends, but things do not go to plan with a spiteful ex determined to break them up. This is a well written story which had drama, angst, love and passion. I was hooked throughout this riveting story and I highly recommend for all.

He’s Captured My Trust is the second book in Karen Frances’ Captured series. Book 2 picks up right where book 1 left off. Once Libby forgives Alex for his omissions in book 1, she must decide if she is willing to give-up many things in her life, including her job which she loves to be with Alex. Libby decides to go to the states for a long weekend with Alex to help her try to decide if she wants to give everything up to be with Alex. There are of course, bumps in

**Trigger Warning** This story contains mentions of rape and attempted rape.

Book 2 in the captured series picks up right where book one left off. Libby and Alex still have plenty of obstacles to overcome, least of which is the Atlantic Ocean. Alex infuriates me a lot during this book but Libby’s nemesis Katherine Hunter is such a great character to dislike and we meet James who could give Jeff from book 1 a run for his money on being a sleezebag.

As with book 1 i am only giving this book 3.5 star

I loved this book a lot. I rate it a good 4.5 stars. I cried and got a bit frustrated with both Alex and Libby and their stubbornness. Katherine made me want to choke life outta her but I understand that tragedy has a way of changing us and shaping us. I totally recommend reading these books the author knows how to weave a spell over her readers! Now onto the 3rd book... where are Alex and Libby taking me?

Getting dull

I had high expectations for this book after I read the first one. I'm a bit disappointed. The story is getting boring. The main characters are getting boring. During the hot scenes I found myself skimming then because of the boredom. I'm debating with myself about reading the next book.
