To get it, he has to hunt down the woman he used to love, the paranormal fire starter who set his house ablaze with him, and his family, locked inside of it. When he catches her, however, he faces his biggest challenge yet. To not believe her when she claims to be innocent, or fall for her seduction..

DEBT INHERITANCE by Pepper Winters

Things take a turn for the worse when Riley St. Claire is kidnapped by aliens and forced to choose a mate. The problem is, it would have been better, and safer, for the aliens if they had left Riley back on Earth.

My Review:

       I was asked by the wonderful Cathryn Fox to do a review of this boxed set and I more than happily agreed to do it. Not only do I love Cathryn's books, but I was also looking to see if I found any new author's that I may enjoy. So normally I would do a whole long review on each book in this set. But I don't want to bore you and I'm actually on a library computer so I have a limited time to write this review.

     Anyways I'm babbling here.... On with the show, I'm going to write reviews for 3 of the books in here. A couple of the books that were included in this set were actually books that I have read in other sets. So they weren't really new to me. But I'm going to write a review for Debt of Honor, Yours to Take, and Handcuffed to the Sheikh.

Yours To Take:
        As I said I was asked by the wonderful Cathryn Fox to review this set, especially for her book. This was a enjoyable fast and quick read. I almost wish that this story was a little bit longer than it was. I really enjoyed Rebecca and Quinn's character's. If someone were to kidnap me for a  weekend I would definitely want it to be Quinn. I wouldn't mind him teaching me a few thing's. It was steamy and hot and everything delicious. Like I said it was a fun and quick read.

Debt Of Honor:
       This book was the 1st story in the set and the 1st story I read. And it was one of those books that I normally don't read much of and when I first started to read it I was like "uhhhh." I found myself not wanting to read it but at the same time I couldn't stop reading it. In the end though I really did enjoy it and found that I enjoyed the character's in this book. I will warn you though there is some female on female action in this story. So if you don't enjoy reading that you might not enjoy this story.

Handcuffed to the Sheikh:
     After reading Debt of Honor, I decided to go ahead and read Handcuffed to the Sheikh. This was another fast and quick story. It was steamy and hot and so much more. I loved the character's Maxine and Sayd. This story made me laugh a little bit and it made me really feel for Maxine (who can't remember she's married to Sayd) and for Sayd because he loves Maxine and just wants her to remember their love. It's another one of the stories in this set that I wish just a little bit longer than it actually was.

               Overall I would give this boxed set a 4.5 out of 5 Stars. It was thoroughly enjoyable and I liked all of the books in them. I would recommend this boxed set to anyone who loves any kind of story that has a little bit of everything in it.

                     You can purchase the Captured Boxed Set on Amazon and B & N
