BOUND BY NIGHT
(MOONBOUND CLAN #1)
by Larissa Ione
Expected Publication: September 24, 2013
Paranormal Romance -- Vampires
Nicole Martin was only eight years old when she narrowly survived a massacre: her family’s vampire slaves rebelled and killed everyone in her household. Twenty years later, Nicole now dedicates herself to finding a vaccine against vampirism…and eradicating the gruesome memories that give her nightmares.
Riker, a member of the wild vampire Moon Clan, is haunted by his own demons—his wife Lorraine had been captured and enslaved by the Martin family. It was during a botched escape attempt that she was killed, along with their unborn child. Still wracked with grief and anger, Riker is now fueled solely by the desire to rescue vampire slaves…and slaughter their owners.
When Riker stumbles upon Nicole in a chance meeting, he immediately recognizes her as a member of the Martin family that once enslaved his wife—and she recognizes him as the wild vampire she saw kissing a pregnant slave in the moments before her violent death—an image that has haunted her dreams for years.
When Riker kidnaps Nicole and they spend a night together in a cave on the way back to his clan, suddenly they begin to realize that they aren’t as different from one another as they may have thought—and they’re finding themselves drawn to one another…
WHY I'M WAITING: Larissa Ione is one of my favorite authors right now so, of course, I'm going to try out her new vampire series. I definitely recommend her for readers who like amazing worldbuilding, complex characters, and plenty of HOT romance. Specifically, for this book, I'm interested in the idea of vampires being slaves to humans and the forbidden romance thing which Ione does amazingly well in her Demonica and Lords of Deliverance series.
