For almost ten years Kara Morgan has avoided her family and the strings that come attached to being a Morgan. She’s working hard on her college courses in counseling and even harder in her boring office job, keeping the books at the local strip club. She’s proud of the fact that not only can she make it on her own, she even manages to help out the girls at the club with their struggles with men, drugs and money. Kara can never be completely happy though, because all those years ago she left not only her family behind, but also her heart. Kara knows that leaving Shaun Weston was the best thing she could have done for him, with her father threatening to ruin him. But that doesn’t stop her from missing Shaun every day and wishing for things to have been different.



As for Shaun, after having the love of his life run off and leave him, he has tried to move on. Keeping the farm, left to him by his adoptive parents, is a struggle, and even though he is dating a nice woman from his church, something is holding him back from making a final commitment to her. When Kara’s mother shows up at Shaun’s farm claiming that Kara is working as a stripper and using drugs, Shaun is stunned and skeptical. However, after seeing proof, he makes a deal with Mrs. Morgan to rescue Kara from her unhealthy life, and, hopefully, find some closure where Kara is concerned so he can move on with his life.


Shaun’s plan for kidnapping Kara goes awry right from the start when he ends up abducting her while she’s still naked. Things continue to go downhill as Kara repeatedly tries to escape, all the while insisting that Shaun is mistaken about her supposed career and drug use. After a while, Shaun starts to suspect that, not only is he wrong, but that he still is and always will be in love with Kara. The trouble is, when Kara discovers the whole truth about her kidnapping, will she ever be able to forgive him?


KIDNAPPING KARA is a fun and sexy tale of a white knight determined to rescue a damsel who definitely is not in distress. Kara is just the type of heroine I love to read about; tough, independent and a little bit vulnerable. Shaun is a far cry from the usual macho hero found in most romances. Instead, author Alyssa Brooks lets the reader have a glimpse into Shaun’s mind and see all the insecurities and mental scars that he carries. However, this just makes him all the more endearing. I was rooting for him throughout the whole story. The chemistry between Kara and Shaun was smoking hot, and the love and concern that they felt for each other was very sweet. Combine all that with a humorous plot and lots of steamy love scenes and it is easy to see why KIDNAPPING KARA is sure to find a place on any reader’s keeper pile.
