Bound by Blood
by Cynthia Eden
5 of 5 Stars

It’s an Immortal War…
Vampires and werewolves have been blood enemies for centuries, but now a new threat is rising...demons are escaping from hell and those demons are intent on wiping out both the vamps and the werewolves.
When you have no one to trust…
In order to stop the demons, pureblood vampire princess Morgan LaBeaux agrees to the treaty offered by werewolf alpha Jace Vaughn. She'll mate with him, share her blood with him...and in return, the wolves will aid the vampires in this battle.
The enemy of my enemy is my husband…
But Morgan doesn’t realize just how dangerous the wolves can truly be. Jace has been waiting years to claim her. He’s set a trap for his princess, and now that he has her, Jace doesn’t plan to let her go. He’ll send the demons back to hell, and he’ll keep his vampiress—forever.
Because the blood binds all.



Bound by Blood is the first within the Bound series and I loved it! This book snared my interest from the start and I finished it one sitting - not many books can draw me in like that.

The story opens in a gritty werewolf bar. Morgan, vampire princess, is looking for the man that she has been sent to marry. Jace, who is a sexy, alpha werewolf, has been watching Morgan from afar for 10 years. (Originally, he had been sent to kill her, but fell in love with her instead) Now, he plans to make her his mate and to use her blood to become strong enough to close the door to Hell. Yep, mean, nasty demons are escaping from Hell and want to make Miami their home. The vampires and werewolves (natural enemies in this series) must work together to defeat the demons. 
As for the romance, the connection between Morgan and Jace was instant and it was sweet to read the background story of Jace's feelings for his vampire mate. This was fast and a wonderful read complete with an interesting plot, sizzling scenes,  betrayal, and action. I highly recommend this book and this series.


  1. It sounds fantastic Amanda! I've been wanting to read her and actually just picked this one up! Yay! Love that backstory on them. Whew!

    1. I don't know if you have a Nook, but you can purchase all 4 books for $2.99. I'm looking forward to the 5th book - I NEED to get it! :)
