Publisher's Description

Michigan Territory, 1814

A voyageur and a young woman swept up in a time of upheaval and danger
discover firsthand the high price of freedom.


The British Army has taken control of Michilimackinac Island and its fort, forcing the Americans to swear an oath of loyalty to the crown in order to retain their land. Pierre Durant is a fur trader who returns after being away from the island for years, only to find the family farm a shambles and those he cares about starving and at the mercy of British invaders.

Torn between the adventurous life of fur trading and guilt over neglecting his defenseless mother, Pierre is drawn deeper into the fight against the British--and into a relationship with Angelique MacKenzie, a childhood friend who's grown into a beautiful woman. She now finds herself trapped by the circumstances of war and poverty, and the cruelty of her guardian, Ebenezer Whiley.

As tensions mount and the violence rages on, Pierre and Angelique must decide where their loyalties rest and how much they'll risk for love.

    Captured by Love is a passionate love story by Angelique and Pierre. They are forced to deal with how to handle a strong physical attraction to each other when all circumstances dont seem optimistic for them to have a chance to spend a life together. Angelique is already promised to Pierres brother. And Pierre has a fur trading business that keeps him away from home much of the time.

    Angelic lives on Mackinac Island which has been taken over by the British. With all the negative circumstances in her life, she should by all rights be angry, bitter and focused on self-preservation. And yet she is an incredible young lady. She returns hatred and prejudice with love. And she seems totally oblivious to the unfairness of how she is treated. She remains focused not on herself but rather on taking care of Pierres mother during the years when he is away from home.

    Pierre returns to the island and finds out that Angelic has transformed from the child friend he remembers to this beautiful young lady. But he also finds the family home in disarray and his mother living in really bad circumstances. Now he must decide which is more important, the fur trading he loves or staying around to care for his mother. And how will he deal with his love for his brothers intended?

    Captured by Love is filled with a lot of historical facts that are quite interesting . However, I would say the romance plot of the story is much stronger than the historical aspect. So Captured by Love would be a better attraction to those who seek out a good romance or historical romance genre. Some of the moral dilemmas in this story had me a little tense. But Jody Hedlund has a great writing style and for those who seek a good romance, Captured by Love might have a great appeal. Just following the storyline of Angelic was inspirational.

    I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.

    This is the third book I have read by Jody Hedlund. I enjoyed the other books, but they didn't stand out for me. I was expecting the same from this one. I did not expect to enjoy it as much as I did. I never wanted to put the book down. I loved the main characters. Pierre really stood out in the story. I loved how wild and with nature he was, but at the same time he was kind and sweet. He was the perfect male character for the story. You could almost feel the passion and chemistry between Pierre and Angelique. This is something that is hard to find in books. I would completely get lost in the story and I needed to know what would happen next. They both fell in love, but circumstances made it difficult for them to be together. I was rooting for them the whole time and I could feel their love, happiness, and despair. You will get lost in the story and fall in love with the characters. This book is definitely one of my new favorites.

    I received this book for free from Bethany House Publishers for my honest review.

    The war of 1812 has affected all of North America, including Michilimackinac Island. Men have followed the call to fight, food is scarce, and soldiers are everywhere. Attempting to avoid the same fate as her sister, Angelique MacKenzie is determined to fade into the background and avoid her cruel step-father and his young new wife until the war is over and her fiance returns. What she doesn't expect is her childhood friend, Pierre Durant, to return to the island after years of absence. Neither of them are children anymore. Could there be more to their relationship than what was there? Can Angelique keep her promise or will she follow her heart?

    I loved the characters from the beginning. Angelique has been beaten down from so many directions but she is strong and serves without looking back, often times going hungry in order to feed someone she loves, the British leaving little for the colonists to eat. She is playful and yet stubborn, wanting to feel safe and secure and thinks that she has found the perfect way to have that but often God's ways are different than ours. Pierre is a new man, having given his life to Christ. However, like most of us, he deals with the guilt of his past and turning everything over to God.

    I loved the setting of the book. I have read little of the time period or of Mackinac Island. Jody Hedlund has a way of making me feel like I lived through the war and walked on the island. I have read only one other book by Jody but will be seeking out others in a church or public library. I highly recommend it. I see no indication on the book that is is part of a series but if it is this volume easily stands on its own.

    I did receive this book free from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. The opinions are my own.

    The British Army has taken control of Michillimackinac Island, forcing the people that live there to swear an oath of loyalty if they choose to remain. Pierre Durant a fur trader returns after being away from the island for years. He finds his mother frail. His childhood friend Angelique MacKenzie has grown into a beautiful young woman. Pierre and Angelique fall in love, but she is to marry his brother who is away at war. How much will they risk? It took me awhile to get into this book, it just seemed to be going nowhere for awhile. I rate it a 6 out of 10.

    Another Great Read From Ms. Hedlund!

    Ms. Hedlund just gets better with every new book, and this book is no exception!

    Angelique long for safety, for security against the changing temperaments of her step-father and his new wife, the hunger, and the British soldiers that wring the colonists dry.

    When her childhood friend, Pierre Durant comes back to Michilimackinac Island, Angelique is hurt and confused. But as their friendship begins to turn into something more, Angelique finds herself even more confused as she has already promised herself to Pierre's brother, Jean.

    How can Angelique stay true to her promise when her heart longs to be somewhere else?

    A well told story, set on Michilimackinac Island during the war of 1812, shows the struggles faced by the families stuck between the British and American forces, with tensions high. I can honestly say that I don't think I ever thought about places like Michilimackinac before and what they went through during the war, but Ms. Hedlund really brought the backwoods community/army barracks setting to life, and I can tll that she put a lot of research into making it so realistic.

    Angelique was a heroine that I liked from the very start, she was beautiful inside and out, humble and hard working, I loved how she put the needs of Miriam before her own. She was bright, yet vulnerable, and heroine that had me cheering for her from the very beginning.

    Pierre was a rakishly handsome trapper, hard to read at times, yet with a heart of gold.

    Overall, this was a fantastic read, and quite possibly my favorite from Ms. Hedlund yet! The characters and their situations were well defined, and I was swept up into the story, not wanting to put it down. Compelling, and action packed, with great romantic tension, this is not a book that you will want to miss! Highly recommend.
