Captured by Julia Rachel Barrett

Mari never expects to find herself in a cage in a cargo hold on a spaceship. She quickly learns from her captors she's headed to the meat market. When they try to return her to hypersleep, she resists. After allowing her to stay awake, Mari realizes her survival depends on connecting with the male in charge, Ekkatt. She must make him see her as a sentient being or she will end up as dinner.

Ekkatt has never spoken to any human. They are valued for one thing, the money they bring at auction. The Attun race is vegetarian, but other species prize human flesh and bring in good money. Then the female with red hair speaks to him and forces him to admit she has a name. Mari throws Ekkatt's entire life into question, the biggest question...can he watch her sold to the highest bidder?

Reviewer: ScarletRose
An extraordinarily strong woman is taken from earth to a strange, alien world that after first glance seems much like our earth. She has faced terrible loss, yet managed to stay alive ...that bodes well for her survival in this hostel new world.

If you love Alien/Human romances, then you will be enthralled by Captured!

The heroine, Mari, awakens in a cage, naked and terrified. She has no idea where she is or how she got there...enter the hero, Ekkart...her captor. To him, she and the other women he and his fellow trappers have taken are just animals heading for the auction to be either slaughtered, or used as strange alien prostitutes. The 'animals' are kept sedated for easier transport.

But Mari wakes up... and she is pissed! She confronts her captors, intrigues Ekkart and makes him question everything he has ever believed. He must come to terms that what he does is morally wrong, in- humane and this will turn his life up-side down.

I loved this book! Ekkart is pissed that the cargo is awake.... Mari tells him.... ___you! LOL She gains his respect and he gains his heart... this is a wonderful love story that will have you rooting for this wonderful couple...and the lovemaking isn't bad fact it is HOT....

Captured is the first book I have read by author Julia Rachel Barrett but it will not be the last.... I give it 5 stars....
