Title: Bound (The Devil's Due)
Author: Eva Charles
Genre: Romantic Suspense & Alpha Hero/Protector
Release Date: February 20, 2020
Father Creighton and Smith Sinclair.
Two dangerous men inexplicably drawn to me.
One bound by a holy vow, the other by duty and honor.
One emphatically covets my soul.
The other, despite his regrets, desires my heart.
Each demands I surrender my body to his control.
A priest and a soldier.
A demon and a knight.
An eternity in darkness, or a lifetime of love and light.
In the end, I have only seconds to decide.
This can be read as a standalone, but it's better to read the first two books in the series, simply because of references made to events that happened in the previous books. However, this is still a fantastic read from start to finish. It took me a while to really begin to warm up to Kate, as I felt she was too much of a pushover, but given the background with her family, it was no wonder why she was that way, but there does come a point in the story where she begins to show some backbone.
The absolute best part of this book is Smith. Hands down. He's a great alpha: he's got the badass part down, but he's got such a kind heart underneath that gruff exterior. Even after finishing this book, I'm still on the fence when it comes to Father Creighton; he definitely added a unique twist to the story. Some suspense built in, and plenty of sexy chemistry had me engaged from start to finish.
After being a confirmed city-girl for more than thirty-five years, Eva moved to beautiful Western Massachusetts in 2014. There, she found herself living in the woods with no job, no friends (unless you count the turkey, deer, and coyote roaming the backyard), and no children underfoot, wondering what on earth she’d been thinking. But as it turned out, it was the perfect setting to take all those yarns spinning in her head and weave them into a romantic tale.
When she’s not writing, trying to squeeze information out of her tight-lipped sons, or playing with the two cutest dogs you’ve ever seen, Eva’s creating chapters in her own love story.
