Glowing Reviews for Capturing Gabriel


Release Day +2 for Capturing Gabriel brings wonderful 5-Star reviews!

“This is a great book. I love the depth of research that the author put into this book and the story content is awesome and kept me engrossed until the end.” -By Amazon Customer K Hamilton

“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 an great author behind a wonderful plot!” -By Dii TOP 500 REVIEWER

Counting Down the Hours . . .


Capturing Gabriel, book 3 in my Romancing the Guardians saga, goes live on Amazon tomorrow, December 29th. Only hours away!

Have you ever read a romance set in the mountains of Colombia? I haven’t, but I have written one. If you like something a bit different, both in the setting and in the characters, check this one out.

Like the first two books in this series, Capturing Gabriel is only 99cents, but the price will soon go up. So grab it while it’s cheap! Err, I mean hot.

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?

My Very First Pre-Order Experiment

Yes! My friends and I are celebrating because Capturing Gabriel is now available for Pre-Order on Amazon! Capturing Gabriel (Romancing the Guardians, #3)

The pre-order period is a bit last minute, I fear. It took me a while to figure out how to proceed. Next time I’ll know what I’m doing. I hope!

I also worked up a catchier book description. (See Below) At least I think it’s catchy. Why don’t you give it a read and tell me what you think? Does it make you want to read Josie and Gabriel’s story?

To whet your appetite, here are blurbs for all three books.

Rescuing Lara:

Lara Spenser is running for her life. She guards a treasured relic that her ruthless enemies the “Hellhounds” want to steal. While taking refuge in Ireland, her unique sixth sense warns her the evil ones are closing in. Injured in a car wreck that killed her beloved uncle, she desperately needs a bodyguard.

Enter Connor O’Shea, ex-Special Forces soldier on leave after a tragic accident on his gas well firefighting job. Upon meeting Lara, his protective instinct compels him to defend her until she finds a permanent bodyguard. Romance soon blooms, but while he may keep Lara safe, can Conn rescue her from deep emotional wounds that hold her prisoner? Will she learn to love again and fulfill her destiny as High Guardian of apocalyptic secrets?

Review Excerpt:

“It’s so wonderful to pick up a romantic suspense-filled novel and fall in love with both main characters . . . the plot is brilliantly set up as it slides across genres and takes on its own life! . . . Picture a vibrant, multi-colored braided ribbon, each color being a subplot and you can visualize how well Ms. Horner has woven this tale together with depth and precision, while creating a masterful work of art through words.”

Decoding Michaela:

Michaela Peterson can read minds but can she tell good from evil? A Guardian of Danu sworn to protect one of seven sacred scrolls, her identity is known only to the High Guardian. Or so she thinks until a stranger brings word that her revered leader has been murdered by vicious “Hellhounds” who want the scrolls. She’s attracted to the handsome messenger, but is he who he claims to be? Or does he mean to gain her trust and steal the scroll she guards?

Dev Medina often dreams of a woman he calls his golden goddess. He believes she is real and meant for him. Expecting to deliver a warning to Dr. “Michael” Peterson from the new High Guardian, he is stunned to find the doctor is his dream girl. Fearing the Hellhounds may be coming after her, he wants to whisk her to safety, but she stubbornly resists leaving her Galveston, Texas, home. Can he convince her to trust him before tragedy strikes?

Review Excerpt:

“DECODING MICHAELA includes romance, adventure, psychic gifts, and mystery to keep readers engaged until the last word. The Guardian series by Lyn Horner is a must read.”

Caroline Clemmons, Best selling Romance Author

Waging a battle against drug traffickers in his country, Gabriel also seeks revenge upon a man he hates. He’s not looking for romance and doesn’t trust the feisty American female who invades his life. The urgent message she brings, supposedly from the High Guardian, may be a lie intended to ensnare him.

The book is called Escape From B-Movie Hell and the blurb goes like this:

If you asked Andi Turbot whether she had anything in common with Flash Gordon she’d say no, emphatically. Saving the world is for dynamic, go-ahead, leaders of men and while it would be nice to see a woman getting involved for a change, she believes she could be the least well-equipped being in her galaxy for the job.

Excerpt:

Hours or maybe only minutes later, a hand roughly shook her shoulder, waking her. Then the hand groped her breast. She gasped and her eyes flew open. Above her in the darkness loomed a man’s crouched figure. Without having to think, she drove the heel of her left hand into his solar plexus and chopped him in the throat with the edge of her right hand, moves she’d learned in the Army. She rolled out of the way as he gagged and toppled sideways.

Not giving the intruder time to recover, Josie pulled her combat knife from her boot and scrambled from the open tent. She shot to her feet, glanced around and froze. A semicircle of men surrounded the campfire, facing her. Berto stood with his back turned, talking to a tall man with lean features, dressed in camouflage pants and shirt – like several of the others – and a floppy-brimmed camo hat.

Berto pivoted toward her. Surprise widened his eyes when he spotted the deadly knife in her hand. “Señorita!”

“Who are these men, Berto?” she demanded. Her gaze traveled over the motley bunch, returning to the tall man. He stood out from the rest, not only in height but with an indefinable air of authority. He was also handsome as sin.

“Señorita, I –” her guide began.

A growl of rage behind Josie alerted her. She whirled just as the man she’d temporarily put out of action burst from the tent and launched himself at her. She had no time to react. He knocked her flat, jolting her when she hit the hard ground. Landing on top of her, he knocked the wind out of her.

Somehow, she hung onto her knife. Although barely able to breathe, she jabbed the blade at the flabby underbelly of his bearded chin. The point pricked his skin, producing a thin trickle of blood that ran down his throat. He went still and watched her with fury in his black gaze.

“Get off me,” she panted, struggling for air.

He snarled between clenched teeth but didn’t move. His fetid breath made her want to gag. Then a low voice barked the same order in Spanish. The oaf on top of her shot a rebellious glance at whoever had spoken. With a hate-filled glare, he growled a refusal, twisted his head away and made a grab for her knife arm. She jerked it aside just in time.

Suddenly, another man crouched beside her. Thinking he meant to help subdue her, she whipped her blade across his chest and heard him gasp as it tore through his shirt, into his flesh. With lightning reflexes, he gripped her wrist and squeezed painfully, wrenching a sharp cry from her lips as the knife dropped from her paralyzed hand.

Staring at the man’s lean features and light, angrily slitted eyes, she recognized him as the one Berto had been speaking to when she burst from her tent. She expected him to strike back at her for wounding him but instead, he shoved the other man off her, issuing a harsh reprimand in the same low, resonant voice her attacker had refused to obey moments before. She realized he must lead this band of thieves or rebels, or whatever they were.
