An unexpected accident tears Evangeline Love’s world asunder. Plunged into the midst of an argument that has nothing to do with her, she realizes she’s been thrust into a world where nothing is as it seems. Vampires are creatures of legend. They don’t exist. At least this is what she tells herself with every passing second. No matter how much she tries to deny what she sees, the truth grows larger and darker by the day. If she’s to survive, she’ll have to accept the inevitable before the darkness that surrounds her takes hold completely.

A dark, yet totally engrossing paranormal romance, Forever Bound presents the reader with a unique take on vampire lore. Presented in what is a Ukranian setting, we meet Evangeline, a young woman whose world changes in the blink of an eye. She ends up questioning her own sanity, unsure if she’ll ever get to see another day.

The authors have done a beautiful job of setting up this unique story. They’ve given us believable, yet enigmatic characters. Characters who will do whatever is necessary to survive. While this book is a standalone, the world they’ve created alongside the other authors who’ve also written additional books is large and all-encompassing. I suspect these authors have more to share with us of the world they’re constantly creating. I’m looking to seeing what’s to come.


From the USA Today bestselling author of Vampire Girl comes a new vampire romance that will suck you in.

Why am I tied to a tree in the middle of a freezing Ukrainian forest waiting for a god to come devour me?

Funny story.

While traveling for the winter during my last year of grad school, my Ukrainian friend convinced me to join them in their homeland for a few days. It seemed like a good idea at the time. Only our plane crashed and I woke up here, in a village that’s a throwback to the Dark Ages, with no electricity, no Wi-Fi and a strong superstition in gods and human sacrifices.

Yay me.

I mean, I’m all about the authentic local experience when traveling, but this is a little too authentic.

I’m expecting to die from the cold. Not some made-up god monster. But then he walks out of the shadows, and an entirely different fear seizes me.

Lust and terror war within me as I’m taken captive by something so much more than a man.

A vampire.

Straight from the legends.

And he needs my blood to survive.

But he’s chosen to spare me. Unfortunately, I’m not sure either of us will survive the winter.

Because something is hunting the people of this mysterious village. Something even a vampire fears.

And we may be its next victims.

Forever Bound is a novella featured in the Vampire Brides series. All books in the Vampire Brides series are standalone and can be read in any order.
