I really enjoyed this story ….. I look forward to more in this series!!! Sep 05, WildAboutBones rated it really liked it Shelves: Vampires, witches, FBI Agents, a serial killer, murder, betrayal and romance come together in this first of a new series by P. Written in first person from the point of view of the female lead, Lupton adds to the traditional mythos of both vampires and witches. With several interesting twists and turns, this has a very good story line and fully developed characters. Nathan, the male lead, is stunned when he finds out who Brianna really is and that she doesn't really know who she is other than the basics which she has just learned from her father.
She is also a pistol - she decked her new partner, Morrison, before she knew who he was. When she meets Nathan, she "noticed three things at once: First, the alluring scent that filled the room was him. Second, he was undeniably the most drop dead gorgeous man [she] had ever laid eyes on. And third, he was the source of the pulsating charge in the room.
Great, his voice was just as destructive to [her] libido as his touch, it was like pure sex! And the sex between Brianna and Nathan rivals that of Lynsay Sands' Argeneau series mates who pass out because the sex is so good. Even though this is a nice long well developed story, I was so captivated by the story, I read it in one day. I think fans of the paranormal romance, vampire and witch genres will enjoy this story.
I received this book as a part of R2R. Overall this was a great read. The author does a good job with the mystery and intrigue. I really liked Brianna as a tough kick butt girl. I also enjoyed Morrison and wish him a HEA with the next installment of the book. Nathan was great of course. My only complaint would be that I would have loved to see Nathan court Brianna more. I didn't get a sense of what he woud do to get the girl. But I didn't let that affect my rating of the book.
I certainly would r I received this book as a part of R2R. I certainly would recommend. View all 3 comments. Jul 06, L. This debut novel, Bound by Blood, completely surpassed my expectations!

You can count me among her fans that eagerly await the sequel to this captivating series! I really liked Brianna and Nathan. I thought they were a solid couple and the chemistry was really good but their relationship wasn't just about the heat. They genuinely cared about and respected each other without either one coming off as weak. I loved the different take on how vampires came into being.
Overall a very good book. First of all, I suspect P. Lupton is a neat freak. Usually there are so many mistakes in self-published books, and here there was just a couple of accidentally omitted words, and that's it. Secondly, the book just flows and you sort of go along with the flow. I kept expecting Brianna to mess up, to have a full blown hissy fit, 4. I kept expecting Brianna to mess up, to have a full blown hissy fit, but she stayed reasonable, rational and willing to learn how to live in her new reality.
I greatly admired that. Usually there is always a set back in the book when the main character finds out that their system of beliefs is skewed, and you sort of expect it. Nothing like this happens here. Brianna, a pleasure to make your acquaintance. Brianna is a psychic or more correctly, - an Empath who works for FBI and keeps her ability in secret. She transfers to Denver and gets involved with a serial killer investigation where every victim has an uncanny resemblance to her.

Nathan is forced to tell Brianna the truth about her and himself and start working with her on the identity of the killer. He also begins training her in her abilities. They spar, they experiment with spells together and make love like crazy until the killer makes his move.

Even Brianna's partner at work, agent Morrison when he gets involved brings an invaluable help into the investigation.
Yes, as I said there are no setbacks of rage and disbelief. Although some evil guys are easily recognisable. The end made me do a girly squee. The bad boys of the Council were also very promising, especially Lucius with his tattoos and piercings This is a paranormal romance crossing into UF, evenly paced and with much potential.
Meeting her new partner at the crime scene is quite a shock seeing that he's sporting a black eye that she gave him from earlier. Her partner's name is Morrison and both can't believe that they are stuck together as partner's. The victims appear to have all their blood drained from them with no marks on them which is baffling. Brianna never expected to be attracted to Nathan Donovan during her investigation which is so unexpected for her.

Nathan Donovan holds a surprising secret that could change Brianna Reece's life forever. Brianna is stunned to learn that her mother was murdered by the serial killer as in her current case.

Will Brianna give into her attraction to Nathan? How can she stop this serial killer? Your answers await you in Bound by Blood.

Brianna Reece is an FBI agent and a witch with strong empathetic psychic abilities which allows her to very adept at interrogation. She and her partner,Todd Morrison, become embroiled in an investigation which centers around a series of murders where the victims are all women who resemble her and are killed by exsanguination with no Bound by Blood, The Garner Witch, 1 by P.
She and her partner,Todd Morrison, become embroiled in an investigation which centers around a series of murders where the victims are all women who resemble her and are killed by exsanguination with no outward trauma. As her investigation moves along, she meets the sexy and illustrious Nathan Donovan who owns a security company which seems to have ties to many of the murder victims.
Brianna is an enjoyable heroine to read about because she is funny, spunky, honest, loyal, and persistent in her need to do the right thing. Nathan is her perfect complement as a hero because he is a sexy vampire who shows an unwavering commitment towards Brianna and devotion for those under his protection. Plus, his personality remains consistent and reliable. These elements add to the enjoyment of the story because there is no frustrating clash of personalities that make a reader want to hurl the book against the nearest wall.
Another positive point to Bound by Blood is the steadfast buildup to the relationship between Nathan and Brianna. Despite their strong attraction to each other, they take their relationship slowly. The author successfully adds to the anticipation of establishing the relationship by weaving a romance that is charmingly sweet and touching while portraying intense feeling.
Lupton is a very adept writer whose debut novel is a welcome addition to the paranormal romance genre. She has created a novel that is both character and plot driven with a smooth cadence to the storytelling. Readers will not be disappointed in Bound by Blood and should be proud to add the book to their bookshelves. Happy Reading from Bona Fide Reflections! I like the way her magic ability was explored with Nathan and how he helped her to build her skills, and I really liked the mix of magic and vampire which I haven't seen often in other books i've read.
I also found the book provided a slightly different take on the world of vampires.. I liked the idea of how some could walk in the day and some couldn't according to whether they were good or evil, and how Nathan also had the ability to perform magic, it made for an interesting twist. The story also brought in issues of friendship, with Brianna's relationship with her co-worker Morrison and how he was always there to support and help her out, and is a topic i'm sure a lot of readers would be able to identify with, which helped to ground the story in some kind of reality even though it's a work of fiction which I feel always adds to a book.
There were also some really hot sexy scenes that threw in a 'WOW' factor, and you have to read it for the dinning room scene The storyline involving Morrison was unexpected, I hadn't anticipated things would take the route they did and I can't wait to see how that aspect is progressed in future books.

Lupton is an eerily spun web of witches and vampires that grabs your attention from the first few pages and holds on to you all the way through. The writing is exquisite with giving details that allow you to feel exactly what the heroine, Brianna, is going through. Brianna is the type of heroine that I love reading about, because she is tough and vulnerable at the same time.

Being an FBI agent provides her with the confidence she needs, but at the same time it has dampened her social life. Lupton gave Brianna a strong voice throughout this book with her creative writing and I felt that I was actually living in this world and experiencing every emotion right along with her. Which leads me to introduce you to Nathan.
So much chivalry and at the same time such a badass!! Love men like that!! And, not to forget the other man in her life, her partner Morrison. Morrison is the type of guy that when you first meet him you can tell he acts like a jerk to fit in, but once you get to know him, he is just a big teddy bear Definitely a great best friend in my book! Anyways, Bound by Blood has definitely set up a storyline that is full of action, passion, and humor that allows the reader to experience an array of emotions that leave you wanting more as you read the last word on the last page.
A definite must read!! Oct 24, Jennifer Templeman rated it really liked it. The combination of an intellegent, strong leading lady, perfectly capable of taking care of herself and others, mixed with a mysterious attraction to a strong man, not seeking to change her, but to make her stronger was too much to resist. I thought the plot was original and gave us enough clues to figure out some things on our own, while still leaving us wondering what was going to happen next. If I were going to say anything critical it would be that another editing read through might have been helpful prior to publication, however even the scattering of errors, didn't deter me from getting into the story and enjoying it thoroughly.
There aren't enough books that show women as both tough as nails and capable of having a tender loving side. The fact that this book did made it all the more refreshing. Lupton has proven it is possible to write someone who is strong without them becoming a dominating, difficult and obnoxious character.
I would heartedly reccomend this book to anyone looking for a quick, captivating, sultry romance with a good bit of mystery, adventure and hot paranormal characters thrown in.
