Island Captive

I was hired to apprehend a monster - a Dom who’d been sentenced to life for murdering his submissive. I’ve seen what he’s capable of, and the images will haunt me forever. I swore I’d stop at nothing to put him behind bars.

But then our plane back to the States crashes.

We are the only two survivors.

And the monster will make me wish I’d died along with the rest of them.

I devoured "Island Captive" in like one sitting it was that good.


And no this was not no insipid flowery fairy-tale but it was definitely my kind of bed-time story
one where my evening is most certainly going to feature sweet dreams of the more carnal variety; if I'm very lucky that is.


The premise behind this storyline is simple Nadine works for a government agency that apprehends hardened criminals that have gone AWOL.
Along with her partner, she is hot

Nadine was sent to capture Adrian after he was accused of murdering his submissive. She does her job but on the way to deliver him into custody, the plane crashes and they are the only survivors. Alone, the tables have been turned on Nadine and now she must figure out a way to survive. The story builds slowly and I was so engrossed that I didn't realize the time. Jane Henry takes the reader on a dark ride that is full of misunderstandings, twists and turns and finally the truth. But when rescue ...more

Oh, what a story. This author never disappoints and this story is no exception. The blurb drew me in and this certainly starts with a bang. I loved the heroine Nadine right from the first page. Such a kick ass lady, and the way she takes Adrian down.... wow.

I was all l prepared to not like Adrian, at all. He certainly gives off the vibes of ruthless killer, until you get to know him along with Nadine. No spoilers from me. Let's just say you can't help falling in love with him once they're strand

EMOTIVE, COMPELLING, and SENSUOUS, this sometimes dark and captivating tale is a MUST-READ!
Absolutely fascinating on so many levels, this sensuous tale of a dark time and uncontrollable circumstances ultimately leads to an inspiring HEA. How that ending is achieved is the thrill of reading this masterfully written novel “ISLAND CAPTIVE,” the next MUST-READ offering from author Jane Henry.

How have I managed to read so many books and not read anything from this author. Like seriously what was I thinking.. or not thinking. It’s when I come across a book like this that I’m so glad I sign up for blog tours.

Adrian is an escaped convict. Nadine must catch him and bring him back to prison. When their plane crash circumstances change and Nadine ends up being Adrian’s captive.

I didn’t find this a dark read however I can see how some may think it’s dark. It does have BDSM in it.

Awesome book, I enjoyed every word of it. I cannot imagine being stranded on an island with a person that you have been told is a murderer. He's hot, sexy and an alpha male that she can't help sneaking glances at. He thinks she's a prude with her hair in a tight bun and she never smiles plus she has treated him like crap and they are the only survivors of the plane crash. What now, you will be surprised.

This one started off pretty good but it quickly lost my interest and I ended up DNFing it.

I didn't like the heroine at all. She's one of these heroines who has more pride than common sense and I don't enjoy reading about those. I got a bad feeling when she started doing things that didn't even make sense in her pursuit of showing me what a badass she was. Like she bargains and agrees to do to-be-determined later things so that the H will come help her out of a situation, then when he drags his

I was not sure how I was going to like this story at first. The more I read the more I was pulled into the story to see what happened next for Nadine and Adrian. I couldn't pull myself away from their story. I couldn't wait to see what came next for the couple, and how they dealt with it. The dynamics between the two strong personalities was exciting. I loved every word.

The story is described as a dark romance, and that is a fair discipline. Ms. Jane Henry delivers a spine-tingling, on-the-edge-of-your-seat page turner. What happens when U.S. Marshalls are sent to apprehend escape convict Adrian Barone and return him to the United States? While they may capture their man, the unthinkable will happen when the private plane crashes, and only two will survive, Adrian and Nadine. Now the tables are turned, and Nadine is no longer the one in c

There’s just something about romances on an uninhabited island that speaks to a part deep in my core. I’m draw to them like moths to the flame. They’re basic. Raw. Primal. Far away from society and the amenities it provides. Just two people lost in the wilderness, having to count on the nature to survive. Add to that the aspect of our hero being a dominant fugitive and our heroine the one who captured him and all of it gets even more fascinating and complex than it already was!

I just want to know if Jane Henry can find a deserted tropical isle and a hot guy for me. I mean, she wrote this one so well, I'm sure she could write something perfect for me, right?

Nadine is a US Marshal and she's part of a team who is hunting down an escaped murderer named Adrian. He brutalized a woman before he killed her. But now that Nadine is on his trail, he won't be free much longer, and he will face justice. And well, if his face just *happens* to hit a wall or two on the way, it's jus

This is the gripping, realistic, heart pounding, and amazing story of Nadine and Adrian. It is more than you can imagine and filled with twists, turns, passion, heart wrenching moment, and lust; lots and lots of lust! I could not put this book down! I have never read a book from this author before but I will be in the future. This was such an amazing story; I want to re-read it to experience it again.

Once again Jane Henry has kept me reading way past my bed time with this, at times dark, but seriously delicious romance between the kick ass Nadine and the mysterious and edgy Adrian. I soaked up every moment of Island Captive and with every page I read, got sucked up into the romance that gives you so many shivers for so many reasons it's hard to describe how this tale pulls you in and hangs on to you so tightly. I needed to see who these two were and how they developed together when best laid ...more

Wow! What an adventure! This book is amazing!

Nadine pursues and captures Adrian with a single-minded focus, but when they find themselves stranded with no other survivors, the tables are turned and it's all about revenge! These two have such intense emotions - they bring such passion to everything they do, it's hard to draw the line exactly where the hate turned into love.

This isn't as dark a romance as others I've read, though it's certainly dark enough. The intimate scenes are scorching hot w

During the flight back to the States, the plane loses fuel and crashes near the beach of a deserted island. Nadine wakes up and discovers that she and Adrian are the only survivors and now she's the captive.

There were too many conveniences on the island that assisted Adrian and Nadine in their survival, such as shelter, tools, and easily found water a

Perfect blend of dark, survival, and kink. I really enjoyed this one. Some thing about deserted islands and a survival romance make me happy. Throw in some darkness and some BDSM and it makes it real interesting.

Both characters were likeable. Adrian

A new stand alone book by Jane Henry

While the subtitle says it is Dark Romance, I wouldn't label it dark. It has a few grey scenes, but nothing to heavy.

Nadine captures escaped prisoner Adrian and takes him back to the US, but after the plane crashes the table are turned and Nadine is suddenly dependent for her own survival on Adrian. It is a situation she doesnt like at all, but one Adrian takes great pleasure in.

I thought the premise for this book sound so good. Sadly disappointed, not even close. I couldn't even get into more than a chapter and just gave up after two attempts.

First of all if you're going to write please do RESEARCH. I worked law enforcement, crime scene, private apprehension and bail bonds.

Unless you've worked law enforcement or have been in the military then you need to know what you're talking about.

Your story can be fiction but you still need to know the legalities. This was a hu
