Lindsay has turned ruthless Sicilian Alessio Capelli down once before, but he's determined she won't do it again--he will use her and discard her! Circumstance has provided him with the ideal opportunity: Lindsay has been forced to step into her missing sister's shoes and work for him.

This time Alessio will be the one in control. He relishes the thought of having a virgin in his bed, and he'll do everything to keep her captive--until he's ready to dismiss her....

Mix one playboy with one prissy woman. What do you get? Lots and lots of sparks. You also get yhe story of Capelli’s Captive Virgin.

This is my first book by Sarah Morgan. Having read reviews of her other works, I nabbed this book. I wasn’t disappointed. It was pretty great. Once I opened the book, I found the tight writing and rich descriptions captivation. I couldn’t put it down and once I was done, I thought about the characters. Yeah, it really stuck with me.

The plot is intriguing. This couple has a history. She loved him but walked away. He walks, talks, and acts the playboy part, but he’s really still head over heels for her. I loved the repartee between them. He kept her on her toes and she confused him right back. They want each other, but the past has a nasty bite. Oh, and her sister is missing. Well, sort of. The lion’s share of the story deals more with the passion between Alessio and Lindsay and rightfully so. Granted, he had an odd way of getting her into his life the second time around. She plays the part of his secretary (as her sister would’ve) and he lets sister keep her job.

Sounds simple, but it’s far from simple. The devotion Lindsay has for her sister is sweet, but there were times I wanted her to grasp what she wanted from life and to let her sister make mistakes. Really, I wanted to see Lindsay take a tumble in the sheets with Alessio. Why? It didn’t hurt he was sexy and, more than he would admit, in love with her. It’s an understatement to say I wanted to see them get back together and make things work. There were times when I couldn’t understand why he didn’t seem to want to bend when she needed him, but it worked because he was alpha all the way. Then again, there were moments where I wanted her to have a tick more backbone. To stand up to him and tell him what she wanted. But, the bumbling and fumbling added to the story. Life isn’t perfect and neither are Alessio or Lindsay.

If you want a tight little story that packs a punch and has quite a few little plot twists, then you need to read Capelli’s Captive Virgin. I give this tale 4 books.
