The Captured Bride (Daughters of the Mayflower #3) Reviews
Set during the French and Indian War in the United States, 4 disparate people - an Indian woman scout both Mohawk and white, a male Ranger scout, a young, inexperienced Army soldier, and a condemned traitor, have been assigned to transport a shipment of gold between two forts.
From start to finish, there is plenty of action as the 4 main characters attempt to transport the gold, and each of the characters show their true colors. Rich with historical detail which shows Griep's obvious research in ...more
So, Did The Captured Bride Steal My Heart?
No. I didn’t love it.
But it did capture my interest, my imagination, and my attention. In fact, only knowing that I would be unable to function the next day forced me into bed at about the midpoint.
When I asked for a review copy of The Captured Bride from Celebrate Lit, I knew I’d like it. After two other books by Ms. Griep, I have a feel for how she approaches story. And I like it. A lot.

I liked the setting as I’ve not read many books set during the French and Indian war and the covers of this series are so gorgeous. Overall this book was interesting and light, if not a little cheesy with the romance and heavy with the telling vs. showing. A good book when you’re looking for a little adventure in your reading but you don’t want to be consumed by your fiction.
For me this story had me at Hello! From the first page I was intrigued, curious, wanting more. This was not a predictable book...not even close. Ms. Griep kept me guessing until the end. A ton of research was done for this volume and it shows. The attention to detail and the technical descriptions during action scenes were phenomenal. The adventure never stops and is demonstrated at it's best! The romance was sweet and tastefully written. I felt each emotion as I immersed myself in this title.
"Kahente means 'before her time'. . . . . . . .You speak your mind without pausing to listen to reason. You don't wait for danger to pass but run headlong after it. So in those respects, I would say you are before your time, for there's nothing patient about you. Kahente."
My, but Mercy Lytton was a beautiful woman; strong, proud, intelligent and gifted with the eyes of an eagle. She fascinated Elias Dubois, but fascination with a woman could prove to be a dangerous thing when your life was on t ...more
Another awesome read by Michelle Griep.
Great characters and I just love Elias don't you?
Michelle has the knack for bringing her characters to life and befriending them.
I really enjoyed the plot because there was just so much going on that kept you to the edge of your seat waiting to see what would happen next.

I absolutely loved this book! It’s full of adventure and a bit of romance. So much happens through the course of this story, yet it doesn’t feel rushed at all. I thoroughly enjoyed the storyline. I loved Mercy and Elias. Matthew was a great character as well. This is a very well written book. Michelle did a wonderful job! I highly recommend this book! This book is perfect for readers of Laura Frantz and Lori Benton.

“Don’t be sad
Fantastic....it’s past one AM here, and I just finished. I couldn’t put it down! The Captured Bride, captured me. This author has the power to pull the reader into a story fairly early on, and she keeps you turning the pages!
The plot was original and so well done, the characters seemed so very real, and the storyline was totally captivating! There are many twists and turns in this read, and I loved the history contained in the pages.
