Captive At Christmas by Danielle Taylor


 After a particularly harsh break-up, Hannah Magnus decides to spend Christmas away from her Vancouver home, enjoying a little time for herself, and picking up the pieces of her broken heart. She crosses the border into Washington State and locates the idyllic cabin that will serve as her home for the next two weeks.

Mackenzie Dunlop is a man of action and reaction. A creation of his past and his profession. When he travels to the cabin he rented to stay in until the repairs on his house are complete, there is a surprise waiting...and Mac loathes surprises.

Thrown together in the least likely of circumstances, Mac and Hannah find solace in each other after a harrowing event. But the future holds no promise for either of them. Distance and circumstances stand in their way. Will love prevail? Or will Hannah and Mac remain two solitary souls sharing love and memories, living separate lives?


 Hannah Magnus decides to take a little Christmas vacation after a bad break up. She goes from her Vancouver home to a secluded cabin in Washington State to nurse her broken heart.
Mackenzie Dunlop is an ex assassin per hire, he travels to the cabin to stay for two weeks until the repairs on his home are completed. Once he gets there he realizes he’s not alone, and Mac is a man who enjoys his solitude and doesn’t trust easily, if at all.
Hannah and Mac’s relationship starts a bit rocky but due to a extenuating circumstance they come together finding comfort and solace in each other.
Most of the story happens between Hanna and Mac, you don’t see any secondary characters almost until the end, and truthfully you don’t feel the need for them. The author successfully develops the characters in a way that you feel like you’re living in that cabin with them, and if it’s true that the characters fall in love very quickly, their relationship doesn’t feel forced at any time.
Ultimately, I feel like this story is one of redemption for both characters, but mostly for Mac. Who is taught by Hannah to trust freely and love without reserve. I truly enjoyed this book and I would highly recommended.
I received an ARC of this book from the author for an honest review.
