BOOK REVIEW- TO CAPTURE A WARRIOR Logan's Legends (A Revelry’s Tempest Novel Book 5) by K.J. Jackson
War ripped them apart. Fate will bring them back together.
After losing track of Bridget during the war on the continent, Hunter Crawford has spent two years scouring England to find the only woman he’s ever loved. His search futile, he finally, bitterly, gives up hope and ceases his search for her.
One rule. Don’t fall in love with a soldier.
Going into war to help her surgeon father on the edges of the Napoleonic battlefields was an easy decision for Bridget Morton. Her father’s only rule? Do not fall in love with a soldier.

And she learns too quickly how very right her father was. Love in war could only end in tragedy. Heartbroken, she returns to England.
What should have stayed in the past…
Bridget put the war behind her, and with it, her love for Hunter. She has her hospital in London. She has purpose. But then Hunter walks through her hospital doors. The sparks between them cannot be denied, but will they both find the strength to let go of the past?

Dramatic start. Things get really dangerous and scary as they are in a fight for their lives. You'll have to read the book to find out who I am talking about in this review. There will be more danger.
I liked both of the main characters. They were both honorable, caring people who had a HUGE misunderstanding or two that separated them.
The 3 years that followed were tough, for both of them but in different ways. They both were bitter, brokenhearted and suffering because of their interrupted love story. Oh, they weren't bitter towards others just feeling betrayed by each other. The story did kind of settle into the angst of that betrayal a bit longer than I liked but I could also see why. Each had reasonable explanations but they were still working through their feelings.
Bridget sure put herself in some dangerous situations when it came to working in the hospital that she had opened as the story picks up. It's in a very dangerous man's territory. His name is Bournestein and he is one evil, merciless crime lord. Although that sounds almost to elegant a name for what he was.
There is some unexpected, dangerous but exciting twists towards the end of the book. And one satisfying Epilogue as well.
