The Traitor is a marvelous romance that ties together bitter past and a sensual present with a rocky future. The Traitor is the second book in the Captive Hearts series, and I was impressed by how much I enjoyed this story. much more than the first book. I really loved the way the story just kicks in and pulls you right in. The flow of it is pretty steady, in half way through it, the flow of the story line slows down a bit, but then it picks up. The romance between Sebastian and Millie was sweet and endearing and very passionate at times. I loved the balance that author has put into the story. It seemed to be just right in the development of the characters and in the way the plot progresses. There is quite a bit of depth in this story, and the way the author tells the story, you start to fall in love with the characters and the story as a whole. Every aspect seems to come together by the end.
We see a unique set of events and scenes that take place, there is so much we see in this story, and I loved the way it turns out, and the love story is packed with wit, charm and passion. A tale of betrayal and healing and a tender love that will capture you!! Riveting in emotion and classy in form. LOVED EVERY MOMENT!!
