Bookwatch: Captivated by Lauren Dane

So I just finished a reread of Relentless, possibly my absolute favorite LD book. And I'm dying. Dying to read the latest installment in the mini-inside-the federation-series Phantom Corps.

From the Amazon description: Vincenz Fardelle, exiled son of the Supreme Leader of the Imperialist Universe, has spent much of the last ten years working to stop the threat his father poses. But he's not alone in his quest. Julian Marsters has lost his best friend and countless others in the war and has made vengeance his only goal. In each other, Julian and Vincenz find not only like minds, but kindred spirits.

However unexpected their relationship, everything changes for Vincenz and Julian when Hannah Black comes into their lives. Having been captured and held in near total isolation by imperialist troops, their immediate response is to protect her.

Emotionally shattered but resilient, Hannah rebuilds herself. Because of the warm safety she finds in the arms of Julian--and Vincenz she becomes someone harder, stronger and bent on preventing the Imperialists from harming anyone else.

For the two men, wrestling with their passionate feelings for Hannah is only the beginning. War is about to send all three into harm's way and an equally dangerous secret could tear them apart.

In reading Mesmerized, I could tell that there was a relationship going on between Vincenz and Julian, and I couldn't wait to read more about it, and to see how Hannah fits into the whole thing.

Captivated doesn't release from Berkley Heat until May. Aaaaack!

On another note, I'm actually working on a year-end post. Don't die of shock, ok? Hopefully that will be up soon.


  1. I like this series too but only read the first two - I need to catch up! On another note - I swear Dane gets the best covers!

    1. The covers are spectacular, for sure! And yes, you need to catch up!!

  2. I can't wait to get this book. The Phantom Corps books belong to my favs from Lauren Dane.

  3. Is it wrong that I want to lick that book? No? Oh good. :)

  4. I just finished reading this. SO AWESOME. I really want a Vicenze and Julian of my own (please don't tell MM I said that). Yum.

    Tracy, I also want to lick it.

    1. Sure, I'll tell MM. And yup, love me some mano a mano. They are perfect together.


Have you read it? What do you think?
