Product description

The first installment in a sexy new paranormal romance series by Larissa Ione, author of the bestselling Demonica series!Nicole Martin was only eight years old when she narrowly survived a massacre: her family's vampire slaves rebelled and killed everyone in her household. Twenty years later, Nicole now dedicates herself to finding a vaccine against vampirism...and eradicating the gruesome memories that give her nightmares. Riker, a member of the wild vampire Moon Clan, is haunted by his own demons--his wife Lorraine had been captured and enslaved by the Martin family. It was during a botched escape attempt that she was killed, along with their unborn child. Still wracked with grief and anger, Riker is now fueled solely by the desire to rescue vampire slaves...and slaughter their owners. When Riker stumbles upon Nicole in a chance meeting, he immediately recognizes her as a member of the Martin family that once enslaved his wife--and she recognizes him as the wild vampire she saw kissing a pregnant slave in the moments before her violent death--an image that has haunted her dreams for years. When Riker kidnaps Nicole and they spend a night together in a cave on the way back to his clan, suddenly they begin to realize that they aren't as different from one another as they may have thought--and they're finding themselves drawn to one another...

Riker is a member of the MoonBound Clan; A group of renegade vampires that live in a world were vampires are enslaved by humans. An interesting twist since they are the stronger species.

Nicole Martin was a child, eight years old, when the vampires revolted killing her family. It has become her life mission to develop a vaccine to cure vampirism to eradicate the creatures.

Riker kidnaped Nicole in an attempt to barter her in exchange for a captured vampire. The two should hate each other, but as they get to know each other, feelings develop.

Larissa Ione does a phenomenal job in the development of this story. There are so many interesting twists and turns that you will not want to put the book down.

This was an excellent start to the MoonBound Clan Vampire Series. I can’t wait to read what happens in the next book of the series, Chained by Night, expected to be released on August 1, 2014.

20 years ago, 8-year-old Nicole was attacked by a vampire and almost killed, and has since been living abroad. Now back, it's up to her to take over the family business, but unfortunately this business involves capturing and neutering vampires to use as slaves - a practice that Nicole doesn't agree with.

Riker lost his mate and their unborn child 20 years ago, and hasn't had a real relationship since. When he crosses paths with Nicole, he begins to feel things that he hasn't felt in a long time, and he wants her, even if he can't admit it to himself.
Can Nicole make a difference in stopping the vampire slave trade? Can Riker have a relationship with someone new after what happened to Terese? And is Nicole really so against mating with a vampire?

This was an enjoyable paranormal/vampire erotic novel, but I felt like it was more about the sex than the romance.

Nicole was an okay character, and I liked that she tried to stick up for herself, even when the odds were stacked against her. I did find it a little odd how much she liked vampires after being attacked and almost killed by one, but well-done to her if she decided not to hold a grudge.

Riker was an okay character, although even when he tried to get emotional over Terese and her child it was a bit obvious that he hadn't really felt all that much for her.

The storyline was okay, although we got the fairly standard vampire romance issues of not being able to get pregnant, and death in childbirth. There were some twists in the story that I didn't see coming though, and the work that Nicole's father had been doing in the lab was quite an interesting change.

The romance in this one was more of the erotic persuasion really, and while I thought that the â€~love' scenes were well written, it was more an erotic story rather than a love story.
This story did remind me of similar books by Keri Arthur and Kelley Armstrong, but didn't have enough love and romance to compare to J. R. Ward's Black Dagger Brotherhood series, unfortunately.

The ending was okay, and fairly happy, if predictable, and we were then left with an epilogue which was nothing more than a teaser/cliff-hanger for the next book.
Overall; an okay vampire erotica story, but look elsewhere if you want love and romance.
7 out of 10.
