Review: Captured by Moonlight by Christine Lindsay

About the book:
Prisoners to their own broken dreams…

After a daring rescue goes awry, Laine Harkness and her friend Eshana flee to the tropical south of India…and headlong into their respective pasts.

Laine takes a nursing position at a plantation in the jungle, only to discover that her former fiancĂ© is the owner…but fun-loving Laine refuses to let Adam crush her heart like he had years ago.
Eshana, captured by her traditional uncle and forced once more into the harsh Hindu customs of mourning, doubts freedom will ever be hers again, much less the forbidden love that had begun to flower.

Amid cyclones, epidemics, and clashing faiths, will the love of the True Master give hope to these searching hearts?

My thoughts:

Captured by Moonlight is the second book I've read by Christine Lindsay and, while I didn't enjoy it quite as much as Shadowed in Silk, it was still an interesting read that broadened my knowledge of the Indian culture.

I liked the characters in Captured by Moonlight, but I don't think I have a favorite - though I really liked Adam. The romance story between Adam and Laine was sweet, but I did get a little frustrated with the flip-flopping emotions/feelings that Laine felt. I also thought the subplot romance story was good. Another thing I liked was how the main characters from book one were in this book a little bit and we got updates on their lives. :)

There were a couple tense scenes in Captured by Moonlight, which I thought really added to the story. The one real negative I personally had was how some characters heard replies from God and/or saw a vision. It's just a pet peeve of mine and something I don't like.

All in all, Captured by Moonlight was a nice one-time read. I did enjoy the story, there were just a couple things that annoyed/frustrated me, personally.
