Summary

In the Royal States of America, magic rules all, but life - and love - always finds a way.

At the Texas Charity Auction, money can buy anything, and Summer Cassidy is under orders to take advantage of the opportunity. While she believes the marital collar once worn by an Aztec queen belongs in a museum, it's up to her to sell the priceless treasure to one of the elite in attendance.

Meeting Bachelor #103, a man who finds her descriptions of human sacrifice charming rather than appalling, hadn't been part of her plans. Buying his company for a quarter hadn't been part of her plans, either.

One coffee date, a dinner, and a curse later, Summer's catapulted across the Royal States on an adventure that will forever change her life, alter the course of an entire kingdom, and give her a chance to earn a love capable of defying even death.

Contains mature themes.

The Irony

Captive King is a cute little “happily ever after” story with all the plot twists you would expect in a romance with a magic flavor. I like Susan Copperfield’s writing style, especially her romcoms. I titled it Irony though because heres a book about a linguistic expert and it is full of mispronunciations. The narrator/producer couldn’t be bothered to find a native Mexican/Central American Spanish speaker to ask about pronunciation for the 6 or 8 words that are sprinkled throughout almost every page in the story that are in a common Mexican vernacular but which don’t conform to English pronunciation rules? Really? You might not cringe every time these frequent words are read by the narrator if you are from Kansas or Maine like you will if you are from Arizona or Texas and speak or hear Spanish regularly...or maybe you will too.

with a splash of Aztec

This book is great its what we expect for the series and deals with Alaska's king with a side of archeology for using on the Mayan and Aztec cultures which was cute.

I do want to get the translators story at some point because it drops hints about him going through some trials as well

Dirt digger finds a treasure

The United’s States is no longer as we know it. Magic destroyed the world and now the Elite run the kingdoms. I was happy to see the king and queen of Montana in this tale. Landon meets an archeologist at the Texas “ ball”. Trying to get her PhD, speaking dead languages, and using her power to work with earth Summer Cassidy can’t get a break. With a mythical artifact necklace and a itty bitty bet at a ball her adventures take off. Her colleagues want to keep her down but she will get her doctorate and prove her thesis if that is the last thing she does. But Landon has other ideas for the lady who digs in the dirt.

Disappointed

I love the world building that this author has created. However, it’s not a romance novel. Other than a few conversations between the main characters, she skips over the entire relationship, including any kind of passion. So when the characters decide they love each other, it’s completely stale. SPOILER: the king is a seer/sleuth who has helped in numerous violent unsolved crimes but, somehow, is incapable of knowing/fixing the fact that dozens of his male staff have been raping/assaulting dozens of his female staff...COME ON...not even the interesting world/magic could save the book for me after that.
