[ Review Posted: Jul 05, 2016 ] - See all my reviews
CAPTIVATED BY THE WINTER KING is my first Mistral Dawn story and I loved it. I'm a huge fan of fantasy fiction and I was taken in by the world Ms. Dawn painstakingly created (psst…while this is a standalone story, it is part of a series) based on common myths and stories we would have read as children. Except that, this is very much a story for adults.

And it has all the elements of a good romance/erotica story. Boy meets girl after she comes careening through a portal in a rental car and crashes into a tree. Girl saves cat. Boy saves girl. Boy falls for girl. Girl has some really scary emotional baggage but is surprisingly pragmatic in her thought process. There are monsters (some are human) and political agendas and subterfuge and a really spiffy dungeon (the good kind, aka the play room) and marvelous characters.

If you're new to the series, I don't want to give away any spoilers, but I loved every aspect of this story. The plot drivers and the various characters were an absolute kick. And, I loved, loved, loved how Kate transformed and her self-confidence grew with Ankou's love and help.

*Warning: There are some extreme activities in the play room, but they're handled with such finesse that it was a blast to watch as Kate slowly flourished into the confident woman that she is.
