She can’t remember him…
He can never forget her.
For over two hundred years, alpha werewolf Alerac O’Neill has been searching for his mate, Keira McDonough, a woman who was taken from him and imprisoned by a dark vampire master. He’s hunted for her, endlessly, using vampire blood to extend his life. He has become a vicious predator, feared by all the supernaturals. His hold on reality seems to slip more each day because he is consumed by her.
Only…the woman he discovers in a small Miami bar isn’t the Keira that he remembers. In fact, this woman doesn’t remember anything. She calls herself Jane Smith, and she has no memory at all of Alerac—or of her own past.
Now that she’s been found, Alerac knows that his enemies are going to start closing in on her. Jane may try to act human, but she’s not. She’s a pureblood vampire princess, incredibly powerful and incredibly valuable. His enemies want to use her, her enemies want to destroy her, and Alerac—he just wants her.
If he can’t make her remember him, then Alerac has to seduce Jane into loving him once again. Because now that he’s found her, he’ll fight hell—and every sadistic vampire that stalks the night—in order to keep her safe at his side.
Some bonds go deeper than the flesh. Some go beyond life. Beyond death.
Jane will soon learn that a werewolf’s claiming…is forever
I bought this one while I sat in the drop off lane at my kids school. I had a hard time tearing myself from it-I actually had to force myself to drive home so I could read in comfort there!
Kiera and Alerac were in love, but the biggest hurdle they have to face is that Kiera is a vampire, a pureblood at that, and Alerac is a werewolf. Natural enemies, Kiera thinks the hardest thing will be overcoming the hatred her kind show Alerac. Boy is she wrong.
Alerac was just using Kiera for reasons of his own, to get close to the vampires. He never thought he’d fall for her, even worse, he never thought she’d fall for him. So when he is caught, Kiera tries to save his life. Alerac finally understands love, but will it be too late?
Kiera is punished as well as Alerac, only her punishment is to be put in stasis for 200 years, and upon waking, she won’t remember anything. During these 200 years, Alerac becomes one crazy mofo who will stop at nothing to find Kiera. He is finally tipped off to where she is, and when he goes to find her, she runs.
Jane Smith is the name Kiera takes for herself. She has no memory past waking in a swamp 6 months ago, and now she’s a waitress in a club. When a tall, dark, and scary man comes straight for her, she freaks. It takes her own kind trying to kill her for Jane to want to go with Alerac, and once she goes with him, she sees how often he protects her, and saves her. Yet, she still doesn’t trust him.
Alerac has to realize that he can’t force her to love him again, and he’s got his jerk-face moments. But he also has some sweet moments, and some extra sexy moments. How can he keep Jane with him, and how can he make her remember him? If she doesn’t, will she stay? If she does get her memories back, will she even be able to look at him without remembering his betrayal and the horror of her imprisonment?
Another great installment to Cynthia Eden’s Bound series, Bound in Death delivers action, suspense, and a sexy werewolf alpha who never knew how much his mate meant to him until she was gone.
