Danielle Taylor’s Captive at Christmas- Character Bios and Dream Cast



After a particularly harsh break-up, Hannah Magnus decides to spend Christmas away from her Vancouver home, enjoying a little time for herself, and picking up the pieces of her broken heart. She crosses the border into Washington State and locates the idyllic cabin that will serve as her home for the next two weeks.

Mackenzie Dunlop is a man of action and reaction. A creation of his past and his profession. When he travels to the cabin he rented to stay in until the repairs on his house are complete, there is a surprise waiting…and Mac loathes surprises.

Thrown together in the least likely of circumstances, Mac and Hannah find solace in each other after a harrowing event. But the future holds no promise for either of them. Distance and circumstances stand in their way. Will love prevail? Or will Hannah and Mac remain two solitary souls sharing love and memories, living separate lives?

Character biographies:

Name: Mackenzie ‘Mac’ Dunlop

Age: 36

Height: 6’6

Build: 285 lbs, solid muscle

Hair: Dark brown, almost black.

Eyes: light blue

Born: Galveston, TX

The only child of Marcia and Robert Dunlop, Mac enlisted at an early age. He spent most of his adult life as a sniper for various government factions, living in the shadows, on the fringes of society…until Hannah.


Name: Hannah Kamille Magnus

Age: 26

Height: 5’4

Build: I probably weigh a little more than I should!

Hair: Caramel-brown waves, past my shoulders. Yes, I got highlights at the salon. What girl doesn’t enjoy a little pampering?

Eyes: Dark blue

Born: Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada

As the youngest child of Norwegian immigrant parents Harald and Silje Magnussen – who changed their surname to Magnus upon their arrival into Canada – Hannah grew up in a world of two cultures. She and her older brother Erik (now deceased) spent Christmas celebrating the traditions of both North America and her Norwegian roots. Instead of just Santa Claus, they had Nisse, Scandinavian elves who brought trinkets and toys and fruit and nuts, as well as some delicious confections. As she got older and lost her parents, then Erik, Hannah longed for a family to share in the holiday spirit. Then she met Mac…


Name: Kayla Travers-Dunlop

Age: 14

Height: 5’2

Build: slim

Hair: Short and dark

Eyes: Dark brown

Born: London, England

The only child of Vivian Travers, Kayla spent her entire fourteen years in London, living close to Canary Warf. Sharp and quick, she’s never short a comeback or witty remark, and tells it like it is. The thing she misses most, aside from her mother, is chips with curry sauce (thick cut fries with rich, creamy curry on top) – a British favourite. She is currently looking forward to getting to know her father and step-Mum.
