Born in London to a mother who was a prostitute, Hannah was raped by one of her mother's customers. Hoping that she would be protected, Hannah was sent to Japan to become a servant. After living there for a year, she was attacked while out on an errand and left for dead. Thankfully, a farming couple picked her up off the road and nursed her back to health. Hannah was sadly disappointed when the couple she thought so highly of, eventually sold her into prostitution.
On display in a window for the past week, people from all over Japan are fascinated with the red-haired beauty. Business booms as Hannah taunts and teases the customers without having actual sex. Hannah is soon fascinated as she experiences sexual pleasures at the hands of a faceless stranger who has reached boldly through the bars to touch her. Intrigued by her blatant sexuality, Sanada Katsuhiro, a powerful samurai, immediately offers plenty of gold to own Hannah.
Ms. Sheridan does a good job of explaining how poor Hannah gets caught up in so many situations that ultimately change her life. While acknowledging her rape, she does not allow herself to become a victim and we end up enjoying Hannah's feisty and independent spirit. The writer masterfully tells us the story of a dominant man who is attracted to Hannah and uses his sexual expertise to maintain control. Even though Sanada-san is already in a relationship with a man he's been friends with for years, she can't help watching and wanting her own sexual release. We watch as the relationship between Sanada-san and Hannah slowly evolves, causing Sato Masato to become extremely jealous. The writer masterfully explores what happens when a potent commitment between two people changes into something else. Ms. Sheridan has us easily believing the plot and relating to the characters throughout the book. While the sexual scenes in the book are explosive and hot, we do become embroiled in the intriguing storyline-wondering how it will all end. Be sure to order Samurai Captive for your library today.
Genre: Multicultural Erotic Historical
On display in the front window of a Japanese brothel, indentured British maid Hannah Connolly captures the eye of samurai Sanada Katsuhiro. Drawn to the lush, sultry curves of her body and the sensual performance she puts on for her audience, Katsu buys Hannah and takes her home, much to the annoyance of his best friend and sometime lover Masato.
Hannah doesn't need to be bound with silk ropes to keep her from escaping (though she's not about to complain when she is). She's intrigued by the handsome warrior and more intrigued by the thought of watching him and his samurai friend do to each other what she's only imagined.
Katsu plans to return Hannah to the foreign settlement at Yokohama and have her spy on an opium smuggler. But can he truly let go of the captive who has touched his heart?
