Willing Captive by Belle Aurora ~ Blog Tour and Giveaway

Author: Belle Aurora

Genre: New Adult

Release Date: September 26, 2013

Hosted by: Love Between the Sheets


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?


We reach the diner looking like a newlywed couple. Smiles, hugs, and happy. No one would guess we’re sweaty, hot, and tired. When I try to sit at the booth, I almost get whiplash when Nox pulls me into the same side as him. Close. The waitress comes over wearing a knowing smile. Before she gets to us, I pinch his thigh and hiss through a fake smile, “Would you stop doing that?”
He places his lips at the shell of my ear and whispers, “You keep pinching me and I might just pinch you somewhere you don’t want to be pinched, baby.”
That certainly shut me up.


This book is not at all what I was expecting! I actually picked this book up because I thought it was a "dark read". It is no way a dark read, it is funny, romantic, sexy, and has a hint of mystery to of the best books I have read in quite some time! 5 stars!

“I never realized how much I hate my life. Not until he showed me beautiful.”

Delilah "Lily" is living a sheltered life. Her father protects her and her sister (although her sister does get a little more freedom) and shelters them from the outside world because he fears for their safety.  She lives through her book characters, that is until the day that she is kidnapped.  Living in the safe house with her kidnappers, Lily makes friends for the first time and truly realizes what she has been missing out on and starts living her life.  She also has a hard to fighting her attraction to her kidnapper Nox.

Nox, the "kidnapper" is just doing his job.  He was hired by Lily's dad to keep her safe and that is exactly what he plans on doing, keep her safe with no feelings involved. Soon, he finds it hard to resist the feisty, attractive Lily and the spark between them. What happens when you fall in love with the person your not supposed to have, but your lifestyle does not allow room for do you choose?

“His arms cinch around my waist and he buries his face into my neck. He says a muffled, “Don’t wanna let you go.”

My heart swells, I whisper back, “Then don’t.”

Read this book! One of my favorites this year.  It had laugh out loud moments, steamy moments, and moments that made me cry. I mentioned to my book besties that I don't think there was ever been a book where I have liked the hero and the heroine as much as I liked Lily and Nox....a must read!!!

About Belle Aurora

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 words.
With writing.
With a creative imagination she never knew she harbored.
Friend-Zoned is the first in the Friend-Zoned series. Keep an eye out for this cheeky author.
