    19. The Captive Brides is a compilation of nine novellas in one book and is a mix of both favorite and new to me authors I liked the play on words in the title, too.In the first story, Love s Labor Found, by Jennifer AlLee, I was shocked by the gruesomeness for lack of a better word of the story I was also shocked at the callousness portrayed by the victim, though I will say the villain got what he deserved In fairness to the author and the story, when a book elicits a strong reaction, it usually me [...]
