This story was quick to grab my interest, and I remained enraptured as it unfolded page after page. I thought it was uncommonly well conceived and beautifully constructed. ~ Coffee Time Romance & More. 5 "cups"
I could not put down Honor Bound. ~ Once Upon A Chapter reviews. Rated A (a keeper).
Isabel's quiet life as an assistant to one of London's famous apothecaries hides a deadly secret. A secret that could see her put on trial for witchcraft if the authorities uncover the truth. But when the authority figure who turns up at her shop is Sir Nicholas Merritt, she's at risk of losing more than her life. She could lose her heart and soul, and the man she loves.
Royal spy Sir Nicholas Merritt can't believe his luck when he stumbles upon Isabel during an investigation. He's been searching for her for seven long years and now he has her again, in his bed and his life. Except she's resisting all the way. Worse still, she's somehow tangled up with a plot to assassinate the queen. To hold onto her this time, he must find out why she left him while hiding a secret of his own that could tear them apart forever.
NOTE: This ebook is included in a 2-book bundle with the sequel, Kiss Of Ash. You can purchase the 2-book "boxed set" of the Witchblade Chronicles at a cheaper price than buying the ebooks individually.
A NOTE FROM THE AUTHOR:
If you've read my book REDEMPTION, you may notice the similarities between Tilda, the heroine in REDEMPTION, and Isabel, the heroine in HONOR BOUND. They both have the same supernatural powers—telekinesis, healing, pyrokinesis and finding things with a talisman. This is entirely intentional and stems from my fascination with paranormal phenomena. Stories about people with these "abilities" have been around for centuries and I've often wondered if there's any truth in them.
There are other similarities between these books - a strong heroine and a sexy hero whose outward persona masks deep pain. It made them a challenge to write, but very rewarding too. I hope you agree!
