Soul Bound

Dark Souls, #1

Sooner or later we all end up dead. Jace Cutler doesn’t have the luxury of staying that way. After receiving a fatal stab wound, he awakens in a hospital room in Portland, Oregon, with no memory and a big hole where his soul used to be. Worst of all is the glow. Everyone is surrounded by a strange white aura he hungers to possess, none more compelling than the one enveloping Dr. Lia Benson.

This is the way the blurb reads - and it's accurate. Jace dies, but comes back to life and Lia is the only one who knows. Everyone else has "forgotten" - thanks to the mind-twisting done by Diane, a nurse and minion of Athanatos, a nasty fallen angel.

Lia and Jace are destined for each other, but that destiny includes him taking her soul and her dying. Unfortunately, destiny didn't plan on the two of them falling in love.

The world building in this story is amazing - though it does get bogged down at times. Still, it is very well done. The characters are believable and sympathetic. The situation is okay, not real, but well-done. There is lots of action, and a very satisfying ending - though it definitely leaves doors open for future books. Fortunately, they are just cracked open and won't leave you hanging.

For lovers of paranormal romance, you won't go wrong with this one. A definite good read.


Book Blurb for Soul Bound

The one man she wants is the one man destined to destroy her.

Sooner or later we all end up dead. Jace Cutler doesn’t have the luxury of staying that way. After receiving a fatal stab wound, he awakens in a hospital room in Portland, Oregon, with no memory and a big hole where his soul used to be. Worst of all is the glow. Everyone is surrounded by a strange white aura he hungers to possess, none more compelling than the one enveloping Dr. Lia Benson.

Lia has always been ruled by reason, refusing to put stock in such nebulous things as destiny. Until Jace dies in her arms, then miraculously comes back to life. Whenever he’s near, her soul responds and her body burns. And she’s consumed by odd dreams she’s convinced are Jace’s lost memories.

When Lia is kidnapped, Jace tracks her and discovers a shocking explanation for who—and what—he is. Something no longer human, a dark legacy that until now has lain dormant within him. Something that could destroy the one woman he’d sacrifice everything to protect.

Warning: Contains bone-melting sexual tension, scary battle scenes, heartrending emotion guaranteed to keep you turning the pages well into the night, and a positively divine hero who may just steal your soul.
