Edwards' CAPTURED IN CROATIA is a steamy romance that's out of my comfort zone but there was an actual storyline that kept drawing me in. Carew had many facets to her that as a computer specialist and agent from America she had to keep under wraps. Zoran kept her on her toes, on her back and scantily dressed as much as he could and the air between them sizzled from the moment they first met and only became hotter over time. Juric was eccentric and slimy from the moment I met him and his depravities made my skin crawl. My emotions were engaged throughout and included fear, acceptance, excitement, tears, happiness, disbelief, anxiety and angst. The prologue and epilogue were nice touches both for setting the scene and giving some closure although a few more paragraphs would have really wrapped things up nicely since I didn't know I was at the end of the book until I got to the about the author page.
Edwards is a new to me author and I will give her other books a try and see if they are as good as this one. I would hope for a less abrupt ending and a smoother wrap up though because until I turned the last page in my Nook I had no idea the book was done.
