Bound in Darkness by Milly Taiden

Lexi Eden’s life has always revolved around helping others in need. So when all her romantic relationships end in disaster, she blames it on trying to fix men who don’t want to be fixed. Enter Clacher. He’s big, bad and tattooed all over. And he’s got a tongue piercing that’s making her biggest wet dreams come true.

Clacher Drachen has hope he will find love one day, even though the last time he loved a woman she disappeared. Or maybe she left him on purpose. Lexi’s sexy, funny and a genuinely kind soul. In his heart, she’s the one for him. Just one taste of her and he’s addicted. He knows exactly what he wants: a family and a lifetime of dirty loving with the curvy empath.

News that Lexi is a Drachen mate comes as a surprise to all, but Clacher is sure she’s still his. Keeping her might not be so difficult if he could just find a way to protect her from the never-ending evil determined to destroy her.

Note to readers: This is a hot, action-packed, fun adventure of dragon love, babies, sassy women, dirty-talking alpha males and enough heat it will make you take a couple of cold showers. Don’t say I didn’t warn you.

Milly Taiden’s books have long been a favorite of mine and her new, Drachen Mates, series is no different. I don’t really know how to articulate this, but somehow, Milly Taiden just makes things work. I don’t know how she does it, but she manges to take instalove and make it so believable, but also make the stories full of suspense and intense steaminess.

This story starts with Lexi helping one of her clients find a new job as a manager at a tattoo shop. While there, she meets Clacher, who she actually knows of through friends. The attraction between them is intense from the moment they meet.

Now, this is the second book in this series and I would definitely recommend reading the first book before this one. You can read this book and it will make sense (you can easily piece it together), but for myself, I wished I had read Book 1 first since I wasn’t totally familiar with why these other dragons would want to harm Lexi.

Many of Milly Taiden’s books feature anal sex, which I normally am not down with. I have Crohn’s Disease so I look at the anal area differently than most (just being honest). Yet, somehow, Milly Taiden makes it so incredibly sexy. I think part of that is because both characters are into it; we don’t really see the male character having to “convince” the female to try it. The women are into it.

Overall, I would recommend this book and this new series from Milly Taiden. The author takes paranormal and manages to not only modernize it, but infuse the history of the characters in a unique way.

The thrilling conclusion of Katy Regnery’s first paranormal romance series!

HAPPILY EVER AFTER…

To some, they’re just words signifying a fairytale ending.

For me, Jack Beauloup, they represent an unyielding desire:

Forever with Darcy Turner, the unexpected love of my life.

A love that has placed her human life in danger.

According to Pack Law, my binding is an abomination that must be severed.

It’s ignited a fiery hatred that I must confront and control.

But what is bound cannot be broken.

I will keep Darcy safe.

Even if it means giving up on my dreams.

Even if it means giving up my life.

Woah…just…wow. What a way to end a book duet. I will say that I honestly have taken a break from Paranormal Romance just because I wasn’t feeling it as of late. Sometimes things get so crazy that I just get lost in noticing all the little details. This book, however, (and the first book) were pure magic to me. 

This review won’t be long because I just finished this book and I want to blabber on about it for awhile and then that’d ruin the entire story for you.

I’ve heard this book compared to Bella and Jake, and I would definitely agree with that assessment. It feels like this is how you would have wanted that relationship to be (should you be rooting for Jake).

The conclusion to this story is filled with action. It was non-stop and I really enjoyed that. I also really enjoyed the layout of this story. The reason I mention this is because I never felt like anything was being totally dragged out. For example, there is a scene where Jack and Darcy are discussing something and they just talk about it. They need to talk about it, so they do. There isn’t unnecessary drama over how they didn’t talk about it and how it keeps getting forgotten.

So I’ll say this…at the 85% mark of this book, I literally gasped out loud and covered my mouth in total shock. And I thought there was no more shock that I could have in me at that point. Insane!

I thought Katy Regnery did an amazing job on her first paranormal series. I loved that it was paranormal, without going so over the top that I was confused by different creatures and mythical beings. I also enjoyed the many hints of French Canadian in this story and the different histories that are discussed throughout. It really made the story come to life for me, and I enjoyed seeing the characters have so much depth.

From New York Times bestselling author Katy Regnery comes her first duo of paranormal romances!

ONCE UPON A TIME…

the most beautiful boy in the world kissed me.

I’ve never been able to forget.

Perhaps it was his jet-black hair,

or the changing copper-color of his eyes,

the intense way he looked at me…

or the fact that he awakened my passion for the first time,

at once otherworldly yet heartbreakingly real.

But after that kiss, I never saw him again.

His name was Jack Beauloup.

Jack, my “Beautiful Wolf.”

Twenty years passed. He has returned. For me.

About the Author:

New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Katy Regnery started her writing career by enrolling in a short story class in January 2012. One year later, she signed her first contract and Katy’s first novel was published in September 2013.

Twenty-five books later, Katy claims authorship of the multi-titled, New York Times and USA Today Blueberry Lane Series, which follows the English, Winslow, Rousseau, Story, and Ambler families of Philadelphia; the six-book, bestselling ~a modern fairytale~ series; and several other standalone novels and novellas.

Katy’s first modern fairytale romance, The Vixen and the Vet, was nominated for a RITA® in 2015 and won the 2015 Kindle Book Award for romance. Katy’s boxed set, The English Brothers Boxed Set, Books #1–4, hit the USA Today bestseller list in 2015, and her Christmas story, Marrying Mr. English, appeared on the list a week later. In May 2016, Katy’s Blueberry Lane collection, The Winslow Brothers Boxed Set, Books #1-4, became a New York Times E-book bestseller.

In 2016, Katy signed a print-only agreement with Spencerhill Press. As a result, her Blueberry Lane paperback books will now be distributed to brick and mortar bookstores all over the United States.

Katy lives in the relative wilds of northern Fairfield County, Connecticut, where her writing room looks out at the woods, and her husband, two young children, two dogs, and one Blue Tonkinese kitten create just enough cheerful chaos to remind her that the very best love stories begin at home.
