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.
