Delilah “Lily” Flynn is used to her drab existence. Lily’s been living it for twenty two years.
Her boring life is suddenly turned on its head when she’s rudely kidnapped from her bedroom.
Or so she thinks.
Nox Taylor is far too high up in his field to be assigned a babysitting job.
There’s nothing more he wants than to complete his mission so he can be rid of the smartass tomboy, Lily.
Day after day, Nox watches Lily and her strange ways. She’s unlike any woman he’s ever met.
Getting close to the girl is purely for her own protection…right?
Lily never imagined she’d make her first real friends in captivity.
What lengths would she go through to keep them?
(Author note: This is NOT a dark romance.)
WOW!! Sometimes a book stuns me and leaves me (almost) speechless. Willing Captive is one of those books. As usual, I did not read the blurb. I was expecting something along the lines of Fifty Shades, you know all dom and sub and she can leave when she wants – yada yada yada.
Was I in for a shock? Willing Captive is one of my favourite books of this year. I could not put it down which is funny because I have put off reading it for ages. It was totally gripping. Unlike most anything else I have read. The closest I think would be The Pleasures of Summer by Evie Hunter. Still though I was definitely the one held captive by Belle Aurora.
It has everything, it’s not dark but its edgy. It’s sexy yet not tacky or predictable. It’s compelling – from the outside Lily looks like she has it all. However she was lonely and isolated and had no life to speak of, then she finds happiness and it’s taken away from her again. My heart was broken for her. Did I mention the book was HOT. Nothing like a big sexy man getting in touch with his emotions. There aren’t many books I read a second time, but this will certainly make that list.
I told my sister in law to read it and thought I would share her ‘review’ with you;
I agree with her though. 5 blazing hot stars for Belle Aurora and Willing Captive.
Now I am off to find another fix from her collection!
A little taster?
Walking over to the door, I close it, taking my time so as to not make a sound. Once it’s shut, I open the dresser drawers, take out a pair of simple white underwear and a matching plain bra, remove the tags, then step into the panties.
As soon as I reach down to pull the panties up my legs, the door swings open. I see a scowling Nox, but when he sees the position I’m in, his scowl disappears to be replaced with a slightly gaping mouth.
I’m mortified. But the look on his face tells me he’s possibly just as mortified. Maybe more. And I certainly got the results of my experiment. Forcing down my flush to no avail, I clear my throat and check my watch. Nodding with pursed lips, I say clinically, “Forty seconds, give or take. Not bad, Nox.”

About the Author
Belle Aurora is twenty six years old and was born in the land down under.
At an early age she fell in love with reading. Boredom one summer had her scouring the bookshelves at home. She stumbled across Sandra Brown’s Breath of Scandal and fell in love with romance.
Having been brought up in a loud and boisterous family of Croatian descent, she developed a natural love for dramatics and humor. Only some years ago had she discovered a new love.
Humorous romance novels.
Kristen Ashley and R.L. Mathewson had opened a brand new world where she could lose herself yet feel safe and at home in their stories. Belle has been known to become a screeching banshee while anxiously awaiting their newest titles.
Belle never thought she would write. It had never interested her until recently. Friend-Zoned began to form and in February this year Belle typed the words Chapter One. And she fell in love.
With a creative imagination she never knew she harbored.
