Unbound By Lori Devoti

Salvation For the power unleashed by the twin witches could free him from the witch ueen's bondage But that freedom came at a steep price For the fierce battle would put than one soul at stakeand two hearts on the line. I was able to find the first three books of Lori Devoti s Unbound series for Silhouette at my local Goodwill store Someone must have been cleaning off their bookshelves because there were many Nocturne Series to choose from I settled on this particular series because the premise sounded interesting and seemed to promise a good read I then decided to read all three as if they were one big novel and found myself enjoying all the books thoroughly The only reason the books did not get five stars was because all three heroines had a trait or two that I found annoying but the heroes made up for that annoyance by being really solid characters

Risk Leidolf was a hellhound a legendary otherworldly creature who was both man and beast For centuries he'd been bound to do the bidding of a cruel witch ueen But after being ordered to destroy novice witch Kara Shan. I picked this book up because the sixth book in the series The Witch Thief won the Romantic Times Book Review Harleuin Nocturne Reader s Choice Award 2012This was my first time picking up a book from Harleuin s Nocturne line if you can believe it This line is basically Harleuin s paranormal romance line and the reason you probably have not heard of it is because Harleuin only publishes 2 Nocturne books a month rather than the 4 or 6 for other linesI didn t have any idea what to expectWe started out on the wrong foot It was the fear he smelled first a pheromone laden scent almost irresistible to the hellhound within him She was here somewhereOKAY I am not on board with this her fear turns me on thing If a hero s reaction to the heroine s fear is a hard on I uickly put the book into the hell no category And it seemed I was in trouble Something flickered in her eyes not her power fear the scent hit him suarely in the face Damn Gripping the edge of the table he fought the need to press her against the wall to bury his nose in her hair to control dominate and conuerEw really Carmen wrinkles her nose in disgust Men who get sexually excited by frightened women very scary Do not want Turn off HUGE turn offCut this shit out book I said And miracle of miracles the book actually listened to me for once I know You re stunned I was stunned too By about 13% that whole plot point is abandoned saints be praisedSo The plotThe hero Risk Leidolf Carmen pauses for laughter is a hellhound Which is basically a werehellhound He can shift between his dog form and his human form He s 508 years old And Norweigen by the wayHe is enslaved to an evil beautiful rich witch Very Sherrilyn Kenyonesue ANYWAY She is beautiful and owns a whole slew of hellhounds whom she takes a great pleasure in torturing starving beating whipping etc etc etc He s been enslaved to her since age 8 I told you this was very Sherrilyn Kenyon She forces Risk to bring her witches so she can drain them of their powers gain their powers and then kill themTonight he s been sent after Kara Shane She has no idea that she s a witch She is very upset because her twin sister Kelly went missing a week agoWhen Risk follows Kara to the bar parking lot like a Creeper McCreeperson another hellhound attacks her and Risk saves her Then instead of turning her over to Lusse his mistress he takes her home with himTHE GOOD The characters are strong And Kara was so good innocent of evil not sexually thank heavens and caring I love good hearted and caring heroines The plot is very interesting Again I was reminded of Sherrilyn Kenyon and I like Sherrilyn Kenyon so I was happy Hellhounds werewolves witches other dimensions and gods were all in here This works to keep the reader engaged There s not a lot of humor in the book but I did like the scene where Risk makes dinner for them and it s just a whole bunch of platters of barely cooked meat Kara s like Um do you have anything green or yellow You know fruits or vegetables And he s like Picking up a fork he speared a slice of venison Prey eats plants LOL I thought that was a tiny bit funny Kara drinks whiskey I just don t see many romance heroines who drink whiskey and I really liked this little addition to the novel She s a whiskey drinker for sure She drinks it in multiple scenes She held her glass up to her nose and inhaled the soothing aroma of whiskey Warm and familiar just the scent calmed her It was a constant in a world that suddenly seemed to shift with every step She took a tiny sip let it sit on her tongueNot only was her whiskey drinking a welcome surprise to me but it also made her seem real Often romance authors forget to add these little touches that give a character depth or if they DO remember they have the character do x activity in ONE SCENE and then never again in the whole novel Not the case here Well done DevotiTHE BAD The her fear is an aphrodisiac which I discussed earlier Luckily this disappears after 13% There s one time where Risk starts kissing Kara while she s still asleep I m not okay with that He starts calling her temptation as a nickname oO This just seems a bit silly to me Heroes are forever giving heroines cutesy nicknames in romance books it is such a staple of the genre But temptation just seems strange to me Risk she asked her head nestled against his chest her hand clasping his arm that was draped about her waistTemptation he repliedHer lips curved Temptation She liked being someone s temptationCarmen gives the author a skeptical look I m just not buying this Does this sound natural to you Cause it doesn t to me She wakes up naked in his house Weeks later she FINALLY asks him why she was naked and he s all like It was so you could sleep comfortably and I m like Violation Violation Very bad form Risk In fact just the other day I was giving a book extra points simply because the hero put a drunk woman to bed WITHOUT stripping her first the right way Sleeping or drunk woman does NOT give you the right to be taking her clothes off willy nilly Major turn off do not want He almost kills a hellhound whom he was having sex with 20 years ago while he was in hellhound form He d torn into the female mounting her even as his teeth had sunk into her neck ripping through fur and skin The metallic tang of her blood only adding to his pleasure he d forgotten everything except the heady sensations of sex blood and finally death Or so he had thought After when he was calmed and was back in his human form Bader had come in to drag the bitch s lifeless form from the room Kara spends the whole book looking for her twin sister Kelly and then view spoilerwhen she finds her she is COMPLETELY annoying and I was SO pissed off at her Thanks be to heaven that she was only in about 10% of the book I don t think I could stand much of her Ugh hide spoiler

    I was hooked by the opening It got a little far fetched in taht some of the scenarioes and details were a bit contrived But I liked the main characters Risk a hellhound sent to capture a hapless soul who happens to be a powerful witch KaraI would read another book by this author because there were a lot of moments of fun reading I'm not a typical paranormal reader so that was partly my issue with the book not the author

    A surprisingly dark story about the torment of servitude and the power of love to break the chains of enslavement I didn't think Harleuin let their authors run with such savage characterization and brutal imagery but I'm glad they did The villain was truly heinous so cheering for the good guys came easy even when I wasn't
