Tag-Bound For Hell

 Changing her destiny means following her heart… and breaking all the rules.

Book Cover - Bound For HellSometimes the Hell you fear isn’t a place at all. Sometimes it’s the life you’re living. A life filled with darkness, isolation, guilt and remorse – for a sin you’re convinced you committed, yet can’t remember.  A life filled with shallow relationships – because the risk of opening your heart is more frightening than living with your inner demons.

On the surface, Angel Lawson is a poised, confident photographer and successful gallery owner. But underneath, she lives her days in constant fear of exposure, and her nights tormented by nightmares. She has spent years building impenetrable walls to keep the demons at bay.

And then she meets the powerful, persistent billionaire, Ethan Wilde… the one man who sees past the barriers and bravado to her brokenness. Ethan is as intense as he is sinfully sexy. A man so irretrievably captivated, he is determined to possess her – mind, body and soul. But can he help her heal it?

Can Angel risk leaving her ‘safe’ life behind, or is the choice no longer hers?

Ethan Wilde is used to getting what he wants… and what he wants is Angel.

Book: Bound For Hell (The Bound Trilogy #1)
By Kendra Leigh
Genre: Erotic Romance, suspense


Bound for Hell
Ethan Wilde. Billionaire. Business Man.
Passionate. Powerful. Persistent.
One of New York’s most eligible bachelors.
Angel Lawson. Photographer. Gallery Owner.
Burdened. Beautiful. Broken.
A woman bound by the ropes of her sins and forgotten past, fearful of her future
A chance encounter…
Consumed by guilt and tormented by the bonds of a tragic past, Angel Lawson’s life has been a solitary journey, condemned to live without love. In order to preserve her damaged soul from further rejection, sex is as close to a man as she ever plans to get.  She was already hell-bound for her sins. One more wasn’t going to hurt …

… or so she thought.

When a passionate encounter throws her into the world of Ethan Wilde, Angel is helpless to resist the irrefutable desire and depth of raw emotion he ignites in her.

Ethan is as intense as he is sinfully sexy. Irretrievably captivated by Angel, he seems just as intent on understanding her naked soul as he is desperate to possess every inch of her naked body.
Angel craves his touch like a drug and yearns for the love he promises, but surrendering to the feelings he’s unearthed will mean exposing her fears and releasing the demons buried for a lifetime.

 Exposing her heart will leave it at risk of being broken.

Will Angel choose to leave her life of solitude behind, or is the choice no longer hers?

Ethan Wilde is used to getting what he wants … and what he wants is Angel.

Bound For Hell – Excerpt
When we reached the apartment, I ran straight for the shower, leaving Ethan in the kitchen to start on the pancakes. I needed time to compose myself, cleanse my body and mind of the conversation which had seemed to sully the morning. Leave it behind, forget it. It was the first time I’d ever shared my shit with anyone, and it would teach me to leave it where it belonged. In my poisonous past.
     When I finished, I dressed quickly in jeans and a top, and padded barefoot toward the kitchen, squeezing droplets of water from my hair with a towel.
     Ethan had his back to me, unaware of my approach, and was slamming about in a rage, anger radiating from every pore of his body. As I came within a few feet of him, he seemed to lose it all together, and raising a bowl in the air, smashed it down violently into the sink.
“E, what are you doing? What’s happened?” I gasped, stunned by the vehemence of his demeanor.
My presence startled him and he swung around to face me, his eyes dark, nostrils flared with seething rage. Seeming to war with himself, he opened his mouth to speak, but the words failed, as if they’d already begun to evaporate before he could form them. Instead, he just stared at me, his eyes dark and intense with emotion boring so deeply into mine that they seemed to reach inside my very soul.
Suddenly he moved, striding swiftly toward me and without a word, flung his arms around me, squeezing me so tight it stole the breath from my lungs.
“What is it?” I asked, fear gripping my heart with the frightening possibilities raging through my mind.
As if the physical contact with me offered sustenance, he relaxed his grip, his face angling to look down at me through glistening eyes. A profound sadness seemed to have engulfed him, a helpless, angry veil shrouding his usually poised mien. Then, as if to dispel the emotion that even impeded his speech, he shook his head and closed his eyes. As he did, a solitary, angry tear escaped from the corner of his eye and spilled on to his cheek.
“E, please tell me. What’s wrong?” I pleaded.
When his voice finally emerged it was hoarse, barely above a whisper. “You.”
Me? I was causing him this apparent agony?

“Why? What have I done?”

My Review
     
Bound For Hell

Yes, Ethan Wilde is a bazillionaire. Yes, he is also an über-alpha male. But that’s where the similarity ends with this fictional romantic hero.  He is over-the-top sexy, passionate, self-assured, and protective of the woman he can’t be without – Angelica Lawson, a photographer and owner of her own gallery in Manhattan.

To say that Angel is reluctant to enter a relationship with Ethan – or a relationship with anyone for that matter – is an extraordinary understatement.  She wants friends with benefits – and they don’t even have to be friends. No strings and no commitments means no chance of rejection, and no chance to penetrate the armor she has built to keep her demons at bay.  What demons they are, too.  A lesser woman would be broken by them, yet Angel remains strong, steadfast, and determined to defeat them, to live the life she’s envisioned for herself. Envisioned, that is – until she meets Ethan.

This is an amazing debut novel with incredible depth, passion and suspense that will keep you on the edge of your seat. You will experience every emotion imaginable as Kendra Leigh draws you further and further into the story, and into a relationship with its two principal characters.   Angel has had a traumatic life, with an incredibly dysfunctional family, but she has no idea of the dangers that lie ahead. Ethan is powerful, passionate, and protective – making him exactly what Angel needs. When she finally allows herself to give in to her feelings for Ethan, she knows she has a chance at the happiness she doesn’t think she deserves – and she struggles to accept it.  It is a breath-taking, heart-pounding journey that will compel you to keep reading and keep you coming back for more.

I highly recommend this novel as one of the top erotic suspense novels of 2015.  You cannot help but be drawn under Ethan’s spell – and you shouldn’t miss the opportunity to read such a stellar novel by a new and incredibly talented author. I can’t wait for the next installment of this beautiful series.

BFN Cover Tag-Review_Fotor

Bound For Nirvana is the culmination of one of the most romantic, most seductive, most suspenseful and riveting trilogies I’ve ever read. From the first page of the first book, Kendra Leigh sets the stage for an explosive series, and delivers a powerful punch to the heart at every turn. The pace is relentless, with twists you can never predict and outcomes you would never expect, taking the reader on an emotional rollercoaster of passion, lust, fear, anger, suspense, even terror. The characters are extraordinarily well developed, with the perfect balance between strength and vulnerability. Ethan Wilde and Angelica Lawson draw you into their world so quickly and so completely that you literally feel yourself rising to fight beside them for the happy ending they deserve.

One reviewer recently compared the relationship of Ethan Wilde and Angelica Lawson to an inferno, and I couldn’t agree more. Like a wildfire, it’s ferocious, all-consuming, and utterly unpredictable. But it is so much more than an intense sexual connection, a lust that won’t be denied. Beneath Ethan’s obsessive possessiveness and beyond Angel’s pervasive, crippling fear burns a connection so fierce, so hell-bent on survival, you know that, somehow, they are destined to be together, whatever it takes. And it takes nothing less than a fight to the death to bring their tumultuous relationship to its heart-wrenchingly beautiful conclusion.

The Bound Trilogy is, above all else, a story of uncompromising love, a love that has literally been to hell and back. It is a wild ride, well worth taking. I will miss Ethan and Angel. They are unlike any other couple in contemporary erotic romance, and one of a handful of fictional characters to have left a permanent mark on my heart. I’m looking forward to whatever comes next from this phenomenal new author, and am happy to declare myself a devoted fan for life.

BFN-Excerpt

 

“Angel?” Ethan’s low, husky tones startled me.

He stood in the doorway wearing nothing but a pair of low-slung, faded jeans, the sight of him inciting my taste buds to drool desirously, like chocolate melting on my tongue.

“Come here,” he instructed.

Obeying instantly, I unfurled my legs and moved across the room toward him. He gazed at me, his expression still inscrutable, and then slowly he moved around to my back.

“Close your eyes.”

Again, I complied without hesitation. I felt something soft brush gently against my eyelids, a smooth, silky fabric blocking out all remaining light as it tightened against my skin. He was blindfolding me.

My heart struck my chest wall with a sudden instinctive foretaste of what was to come. The blindfold, his insistence that I wear my red shoes, his near-naked form in the doorway, suggested only one thing. But his talk of my needing to learn a lesson, his tone, and impenetrable mood hinted at something different. Nonetheless, my skin prickled with eager expectation as I waited for my next instruction in the darkness behind my eyelids.

Suddenly, his voice startled me. He was closer than I’d imagined, his breath warm against my ear, his smell … exquisite. “How does that make you feel?”

Misreading the question, I nodded to let him know I was okay.

“No, Angel. Tell me how it makes you feel.” His voice was slightly harsher than before, more demanding.

I thought about what he wanted me to say, trying to tune in to the sensations I was feeling, but struggling. “Restricted,” I said finally.

“Anything else?” He’d shifted, his lips grazing the lobe of my other ear now.

“Dependent.”

“Think beyond the blindfold.”

My mind searched for the answer, and then after a beat I whispered, “Aware. I feel more aware.”

“Of what?”

“You.”

“What is it about me you’re more aware of?”

“How close you are … Your scent.”

“My scent? And what does it smell like?”

Hesitating, I scrambled for words to try and describe it, eventually arriving at, “You.”

I felt him smile briefly against my cheek and then he was gone.
