RAVENSDALE’S DEFIANT CAPTIVE by author Melanie Milburne is a Harlequin Presents series release for December 2015.

On the say so of his housekeeper, Julius Ravensdale agrees to do community service and host a Holly Perez in his house. He was supposed to be her guardian for one month and be responsible for her. Yet he increasingly finds himself at odds with her.

Holly was used to men using her all the time for their own needs so she couldn’t think any different about Julius. So she went in with guns blazing to let him know what she thought of him. Yet, she finds he was different to men she was used to…could she trust him? Could she open her heart to him or would it lead to more heart ache for her?

RAVENSDALE’S DEFIANT CAPTIVE is an explosive romance with witty dialogue and full of tension. The love scenes have shimmering sensuality. Author Melanie Milburne brought this sensual romance and once again astounds and hooks her readers in the story.

Highly recommended to all readers of romance.


Review by Amanda

Author Melanie Milburne delivers a full on entertaining story in Ravensdale’s Defiant Captive. Reading this brand-new novel has been a wonderful experience! The first book in Ms. Milburne’s new series: Ravensdale Scandals will grip from page one. This engrossing tale will take you out for a drama filled spin. You will be breathlessly satisfied throughout the novel. High-octane drama, lots of feisty attitude, spot-on dialogue and well developed characters will get under your skin. The heroine, Holly Perez, is a breath of fresh air. Her entire life has been jarred and broken. I loved her attitude, her personality. She is wicked in a naughty, fun-loving way. The hero, Julius Ravensdale, is gorgeous and the perfect alpha as much as he is kind, considerate and hot. I must say that the chemistry between him and Holly explodes between the pages. I think this novel might be my favorite MM Harlequin Presents!

Highly Recommended

I have never been disappointed with any of MS Milburne's stories and this one delivers a fast paced sensual story of two people from opposite sides of the track who have a rocky road to such a beautiful HEA.

Julius Ravensdale leads a quiet life working in astrophysics his parents are famous actors but he prefers to stay out of the limelight he likes his life organized and calm so when his housekeeper convinces him to take in a young woman who has one last chance to sort her life out before she may end up in prison he reluctantly says yes never realizing that this young woman will turn his life upside down and change his life forever.

Holly Perez has had a rotten childhood but she covers it well she is feisty and arrives at the Villa full of bravado she is determined not be used and to show Julius who has the stronger will power and puts on a brave front but she is rather taken with the gorgeous man who is to be her guardian for one month.

Julius is hard pressed to keep control of himself around the beautiful Holly he sees through her wall of bravado and she sees a lot in Julius as well and when they are left alone for a few days they cannot help but fall into each others arms but Holly finds it hard to believe that anyone can love her and when they are thrown into the spotlight Julius is determined to protect Holly and this will make you smile.

This is a beautifully written story the characters are rich and come to life on the pages and I am very much looking forward to more of The Ravensdale family do yourself a favour and don't miss this one.

5/5 stars for a fabulous story
