Isabel is caught behind enemy lines as she was making her way past the last checkpoint in Germany.  A SS officer is waiting for her and she realizes she has been betrayed. 

In Captured by the SS, America is the only country not under the German Nazi control.  The author did a wonderful job creating her particular society with some very rigid rules.  There were a few surprises as I read the book and she kept up the intensity of the story throughout.  I do not usually like to read books in the first person, but I was riveted by this story. 

A lot of things are so true to life; the interrogation of spies using any means necessary, including drugs in this case, that makes you realize what some of the concentration camps were used for in perfecting drugs.  The fact that the SS Officer claimed her as a war prize/slave for himself reminds me of the some countries now or back in the “Old West”, when prisoners became slaves. 

Taking the fact that Isabel is a prisoner aside, the journey she embarks on is a subtle training of someone that has never been around BDSM, learning about becoming a submissive.  The Officer is so patient with her that you almost forget she is a prisoner.  Keep ice on hand as you read this one as the chemistry between them burns the pages.  This is a book that needs to be on every BDSM lover’s bookshelf and one I will be reading again.
