For the Bratva, retribution is the law.
An eye for an eye.
A tooth for a tooth.
A life for a life.

But the man who killed my beloved deserves a fate worse than death.
He’ll live knowing his only daughter was captured by a monster...
That he’s utterly powerless to stop me.

Olena Baranov will be my prisoner.
My retribution.
My undoing.
Vengeance will be mine.

Oh Maksym!! My heart broke for him and everything he went through. To seek his revenge, Maksym decides to take Olena to draw out the man behind his pain. But Olena only seems to make him come alive and his dead heart beat once again. Maksym is dealing with all sorts of emotions while fighting off men who are trying to kill them and they are closer than Maksym realizes. This story is one filled with pain, guilt, anger, love and of course, dominance.
Another great addition to the Wicked Doms serie

OMG !!!

I was blown away by Makysmm and Olena’s story. I was totally captivated by the storyline and characters. It drew me in and held me completely transfixed in the story. It took me on an emotional journey that completely gutted me. Twist and turns that had me spellbound throughout the entire book. I couldn’t get enough. I definitely recommend this book to anyone looking for a stunning read

So, after The Bratva's Baby, which featured a human trafficker who kills women, and The Bratva's Bride, whose "hero" hurled abled slurs at a young woman he thought was mentally disabled, I had my fill of Jane Henry (I know she's popular and I know I'm in the minority). I decided to try this one and was relieved that A) there was no human trafficking (at least by the hero), and B) no aspersions directed against any vulnerable populations. In addition, unlike the cold, clinical, financial reasons ...more

TRUE FEELINGS ARE BORN OF FREEDOM—NOT CAPTIVITY

Once again, Ms. Jane Henry has spun a tale that had me captivated and intrigued as the story unfolds. Not everything is as simple as it seems and the twists and turns along the way will keep you on the edge of your seat. While the story will read well as a stand-alone, it comes soon after the release of Maksym, held captive and tortured by The Thieves, from The Bratva Bride. Now, Maksym is ready to retaliate, and Yuri Baranova’s daughter, Olena will

COMPELLING with all of the grit, SUSPENSE, and STEAMINESS of an epic Bratva Romance! MUST-READ!
If you have never read something written by author Jane Henry, THE BRATVA’S CAPTIVE is the place to start. Not only is THE BRATVA’S CAPTIVE a phenomenal read with a complex and compelling story, but readers may also find that the realism built into the main characters of Olena and Maksym is captivating. Author Henry’s eloquently descriptive prose and her use of dual narration kept me totally ambivalent

Great story, excellent writing, made me happy to read more of the Bratva with the wounded and revenge driven Maksym, taking his tormenter's daughter Olena captive. Yuri, the leader of the Thieves has murdered Maksym's lover Taya and Maksym won't rest until Yuri is dead. Olena is Maksym's captive but not a victim of his, she's been treated badly before she ever met Maksym. There is other danger to be wary of, someone has betrayed the Bratva and will have to pay the price. Olena and Maksym have wh ...more

“Bratva’s Captive” is currently my favorite book in Jane Henry’s Wicked Doms series. It had the right level of dark romance (not too dark or light) coupled with suspense, romance, and storytelling to make this a great page-turner. Likes: One of the things I enjoy with a series is getting to revisit other characters from previous books, even briefly, and we definitely got that this time. I enjoyed the pace of the story—there’s a lot going on and Ms. Henry kept the action moving. The romantic (and ...more

My hands were sweating as I read this book. The suspense is intense. There were pages I struggled to get through. But those pages were needed to help understand Maksym's character. Maksym is a tortured soul. His character has so much depth that I found myself routing for him. Olena is one tough girl. She takes everything Maksym has to give and still wants more. Olena is complex, it was hard to figure out where her loyalties were at times. There are so.many surprises in this story, every page tur ...more

Maksyn suffers abduction and torture from a sector of the Russian Bratva called the Thieves before he is rescued by his own Bratva brothers. He recovers slowly, with much pain. But all his suffering mutes into near nothing when he discovers his women, his love, had been murdered in his place. That is when he decides to capture and use the daughter of his enemy for retribution.

Maksym is going to make the man who killed his Taya pay by kidnapping his daughter, Oleana. What he gets is a woman who is damaged, just like he is!!! The story between these two is just freaking awesome and I could NOT put this book down. Jane Henry is my Queen of dark mafia books right now and I'm loving them all. As their relationsh ...more

Though The BRATVA’S Captive was a bit predictable, the story was entertaining nonetheless.

Maksym was an easy to love anti-hero. Consumed with loss and vengeance, he was willing to go against his character and pull an innocent into the war he was preparing to fight.

Olena was a heroine I couldn’t help but rally for. She was strong and feisty no matter the situation. Determined to escape her father and survive her current ordeal, she struggled with coming to terms with the two sides of Maksym he

I've been looking forward to Maksym's story and Jane Henry did not disappoint. Maksym is a brave, but battered soul who was focused only on revenge on the man that took his love from him. I love Olena and all her super sassy, confident ways. She is much more than just the helpless captive Maksym thought she would be. She's smart, funny and sensitive and she really brings out the best in this hard, dominant man. I love the dynamic of the brotherhood of this Bratva. They are harsh and scary on the ...more

When we meet Maksym he's been captured and is being tortured for answers he refuses to give. By the time the Bratva locate and release him, he's severely broken in several places and, like during his capture, refuses to speak. It's decided he will go to America and stay with the former brigadier of the brotherhood and his family in order to fully heal. While recuperating, his entire world changes again. Jane Henry has taken this third book of the "Wicked Doms" series to a whole new emotional le ...more

This was a really good book! I was captured from the first page to the last page. If you like a tough, good-looking, damaged, Bratva man, and a beautiful woman as his prisoner, you will love this book. Maksym was once captured and beaten by an unmerciful, rival Bravta family. Rescued, but still haunted by his nightmares and while trying to recover tragedy strikes again for him as his beautiful Taya is murdered. To seek retribution, he will capture the daughter of

Olena's life has been uprooted because of her father and now she's a pawn in this act of revenge.

Maksym has lost what's most precious to him and he will do everything to make those responsible pay.

These two take us on one seriously intense ride. They are two broken individuals who come together and strengthen each other. He's softer than he wants to admit, and she's a whole lot stronger than even she realizes.

I love the 2 previous Bratva Doms, no surprise that I love this one as well!

So when I got this book. I didn’t realize there’s two books before it. Bratvas Baby and Bratvas Bride. All three of these books belong in a series called Wicked Dons. So not sure if you need to have read the other two books. I enjoyed reading this book, once I started reading I couldn’t put it down. Maksym is all about revenge for Taya. In retaliation he takes Yuris daughter Olena. All is not what it seems.

THE BRATVA'S CAPTIVE is one of those books you wish would go on for another 300 pages because you're just not ready to give the characters and their stories back to the author. This is an emotional ride; heartache, sadness, tears. And there is love. I love Jane Henry's writing and am looking forward to as many books she would like to write in this Dom series. Thank you Jane for another fascinating book!

Maksym's story is gut wrenching. It deals with his loss and then comes the deception.
Olena is taken from her father and the story grabs you and twists you from there.
Jane Henry writes fabulous stories with well put together characters and story lines. Here men are dominant, and the women are strong and capable enough to tolerate these Bratva men!
