About the Book:
Taking a break from her job at an art gallery in Charleston, South Carolina, Valla Denier escapes on a week-long camping tour of New Zealand with a small group of companions and two skilled guides. Valla is enchanted by the wild beauty of the South Island and Kaikoura Beach, as well as the local men. After catching the eye of a rugged, drop-dead-gorgeous man in a café, she is shocked to run into him later that evening at a karaoke bar. Setting her shyness aside, she serenades the stranger with a seductive tune. She never imagines the lyrics would be taken literally.
Later that evening, Valla is taken from her campsite and wakes up in a strange room. Her captor is the man from the bar, Brocan Judge, a six foot five wall of muscle with piercing, cobalt blue eyes. He is not responsible for her abduction; his friend has delivered Valla as a gift, and repairing the situation is not as simple as it sounds.
Valla soon learns that Judge is a Dom, intent on punishing her for her willful ways. Even more surprising is Valla’s reaction to him. When he offers her the choice to stay or leave, she must decide how far down the submissive path she is willing to travel. But trust has never been Valla’s strong suit. Will she be able to set aside her inhibitions and give in to the strong hand she has secretly craved, or will doubt trump her growing desire?

I love reading books that are set in locales that I would love to visit and I certainly love a HOT and steamy romance (with a little spank and tickle too ). Christine Edwards delivers in Nabbed in New Zealand!
The different areas and sites of New Zealand are described in such a fantastic way it made me want to book my flight. From the beaches to the snowcapped treacherous mountains the setting is a great backdrop to this, sit on the edge of your seat, romance.The interactions (and by interactions I mean smex) between Valla and Judge are steamy and you can certainly feel the sexual tension jump off the page. I love how he looks at her so intensely. The transition from captive to relationship can be a little hard to believe but I kept thinking “what if Russell Crowe (he’s a kiwi too) held me captive in his bazillion dollar mansion and thought I was the bees knees?” and then I could relate. I would be a puddle.
There is definitely a BDSM theme in Nabbed in New Zealand that is present but not the main focus of the book. Valla strikes me as a smart heroine that is sure of herself and slightly headstrong. Judge is clearly Alpha male extraordinaire. Together it makes for an interesting Dom/sub relationship. Let’s just say there are some ups and downs.This certainly won’t be the last book I read by Christine Edwards . I have already downloaded Naughty in Norway. Nabbed in New Zealand is definitely worth the read!
