BLOG TOUR w/ GIVEAWAY: The Capture by Julie Coulter Bellon


Julian Bennet, head of Griffin Force, finally finds love with Zaya Altes, but the day he buys her an engagement ring, international terrorist Nazer al-Raimi abducts her. Getting her back consumes him, yet it takes nearly six months to find her. The daring mission to extract her from a hidden prison in Afghanistan is successful, but Zaya has suffered during captivity. Though she’s grateful to Julian for breaking her out, she wants nothing to do with him. Before he can show her how much he still loves her, Nazer finds them and vows revenge. Can Julian keep Zaya safe and still stop Nazer once and for all?

Zaya Altes nearly gave up hope of ever being rescued, but when Griffin Force finally finds her, returning to life is harder than she imagined. While her feelings for Julian are as strong as ever, she feels too broken to recapture what they once had. Instead, Zaya jumps at a chance to trap Nazer, wanting vengeance for what she’s endured. As the final showdown draws near, however, Zaya will have to make an unimaginable choice to let Nazer close to her again. But when a shocking web of betrayal is uncovered in their own ranks, their one chance to capture him is compromised. Julian and Zaya will put everything on the line, but can they survive this ultimate test and finally reach for their chance at happiness?

It's been a while since I"ve read a book by Julie Coulter Bellon.  But after reading this one I was reminded how much I like her books.  I'm going to have to go back and read the first two books in this series. Bellon's military suspense books remind me of another of my favorite authors, Ronie Kendig, who also writes fabulous, very suspenseful military stories.  The action begins right from the first word with Zaya a captive of a terrorist, ready to give up hope of ever being found.  But her former boyfriend, Commander Julian Bennet hasn't forgotten her, he's spent every spare moment of the last six months trying to find her.  But their troubles aren't over once Zaya is rescued.  For one thing, the terrorist is still on the loose and looking for revenge. For another, there is no way their relationship can be the way it was, both Zaya and Julian have changed to much.  As Zaya struggles with PTSD and the scars of her captivity, she isn't sure if she and Julian can find their way back to each other.  And Julian's feelings of guilt also interfere with his ability to be patient with Zaya's recovery.  But above all, neither has the luxury of time, unless they can find a way to take de Raimi down, especially since it's apparent there is a mole in their midst.  This is one of those stories that is almost impossible to put down once you start reading it, because the book moves along at such a brisk pace.  If you enjoy romantic suspense (lots of suspense), I can highly recommend this one.
