What’s a handsome Colombian psychic with super-hero-power to do with a spirited Navajo beauty who invades his territory? Why, kidnap her of course.

Chopper pilot Josie Tseda served in Afghanistan, extracting soldiers from deadly situations. She knows how to take care of herself. But when she vows to find Gabriel Valdez, a Guardian of Danu, and deliver him to a gathering of the Council of Guardians, she may have bitten off more than she can chew.

Locating Gabriel in the mountains of Colombia is hard enough. Josie didn’t count on ending up his prisoner – or on falling for him.

Gabriel is battling Colombian drug traffickers and seeking revenge against the man who murdered his mother. He’s not looking for romance and doesn’t trust the feisty American female who wants to fly him off to the U.S. The message she conveys directing him to return with her, supposedly coming from the High Guardian, may be a lie to ensnare him and steal the precious scroll he guards.

Yet, he can’t help wanting her. Will he allow her to capture his heart or will the secret power he wields ultimately drive her away?

Capturing Gabriel by Lyn Horner
(Romancing the Guardians, #3)

Capturing Gabriel (Romancing the Guardians, #3)She was sent to find and deliver him to the Council of Guardians. A seasoned chopper pilot, a veteran of Afghanistan and equipped to survive, Josie Tseda is a woman on a mission. Little did she know she was about to be the hunter captured by the game.

Gabriel Valdez is like a ghost, hiding out in the mountains of Colombia, a rebel, a legend and a man who would rather deny his psychic abilities than answer the summons of the Council. He is the Guardian of Danu, the protector of an ancient scroll and his presence is vital. Gabriel has dedicated his life to taking down drug traffickers while avenging his mother’s murder.

Taking Josie captive, taking her out of her element seemed like a good idea to protect his people, his secret and his personal battle. But just as he is not the monster Josie thought he would be, she is not the evil deceiver Gabriel imagined. Who would think their “meeting” would end up in a tentative romance that is budding through all of the danger that surrounds them? Like two magnets, they are drawn to each other, but like two donkeys, they stubbornly fight their hearts. Can they learn to trust each other enough to complete Josie’s mission or will they find that the rest of the world fades away when they are together. Lives hang in the balance…

Capturing Gabriel by Lyn Horner is part romance, part action, part paranormal and 100% entertainment as she creates a hard scrabble world and brings two souls together at a most inconvenient time! You will chuckle at poor Josie as she is forced to adapt to a totally foreign environment with all the grace of a bull in a china shop and no back up to help her out! Gabriel has his moments, too, when his reputation is revealed as a front for the man he truly is. With his quirky and unique band of “outlaws,” once more, Lyn Horner gives us a chance to smile, knowing that, the only ones fighting their attraction are the mouthy and headstrong Josie and the quietly alpha Gabriel! Definitely not heavy or dark reading, this has heat, tension and a great author behind a wonderful plot!

I received an ARC edition from Lyn Horner in exchange for my honest review.
