If you're not into books with gay characters, that's fine, just don't read them! But …more This is a ridiculous question and comes across as homophobic!! But that doesn't change the fact that books featuring gay characters, like any other character with any other orientation is a wonderful and beautiful thing, and is enjoyed by MANY!! To each their own!

See 1 question about Bound By Blood…. Lists with This Book. I came in to this expecting a paranormal gay romance, but -despite the author's efforts to add a story line and paranormal elements to the book- it pretty much was just porn with plot. It seems that the only parts the author took great care with were the sex scenes.
And there were a lot of them. Sex in the bedroom, sex in public, sex after just having escaped death, sex between the main couple, sex with everyone else. At a certain point the main character reflected the following: And didn't that just perfectly sum up the book?
Solid world building, character development and common sense all took the backseat. The plot -if we can call it that- was all over the place, with events occurring, people showing up and definitions hunters! I couldn't relate to the main character at all, and not only because Peter was an egocentric, slow on the uptake nymphomaniac, but also because the thoughts and emotions weren't relatable or described well. There was a total lack of tension and an abundance of stilted or corny dialogues with everything just seeming to happen haphazardly. If you're looking for a hot read and you're willing to overlook everything else, this is a good book for you.
Otherwise save yourself the eye rolling and skip this. View all 25 comments. Apparently being a vampire means having a lot of sex. Also apparently if a vampire feeds from you enough your body chemistry is realigned so you also have a lot of sex I'm pretty sure that's a cultural construct though, not a physiological one. I could barely keep track of the coupling, recoupling, tripling, re-tripling What I liked is that this is joyful, happy, caring sex. These guys use sex to express liking each other, caring for each other, being someone's boss, being someone's subordin Apparently being a vampire means having a lot of sex.
These guys use sex to express liking each other, caring for each other, being someone's boss, being someone's subordinate, saying hello, saying welcome back, and just being happy that they're in the same room together. It's always consensual, always pleasureable. Plus it's well-written sex.
I believe in this sex. I liked the point the evil vampire made; where are all the women?

Being with a master vampire comes with its own responsibilities. Lucien is very patient in letting Peter come to terms with the violent vampire world but eventually has had enough of his fear and lack of trust. This forces Peter to choose. And choose he does. He became a strong, caring and decisive leader for their coven. It was as though he was meant to be a partner to Lucien in leading their coven. All the back and forth between them was tiring.
They were very honest with each other, which of course led to the constant battles. Holy hotness there was a lot of sex in this book. It was like one constant orgy. Everyone just had sex with and fed from everyone! There was blood and cum all over the damn place it seemed. The sex was hot but I prefer for the couple to only be with each other, as opposed to a rotating door of lovers. So twist my arm and, yes, I will be reading more of this series. View all 4 comments. This first book in the Soul Mates series is a fabulous introduction to a dark and dangerous world populated by Vampires and Werewolves and other supernatural beings.
This is much more than a romance book, it's filled with action, violence, dark and sometimes uncontrollable desires, seriously hot sex and two men, one human and the other vampire, who will come together to form a bond for the ages. When Peter Hayes first sees Lucien Delacroix he thinks he's just another gorgeous guy dancing at club This first book in the Soul Mates series is a fabulous introduction to a dark and dangerous world populated by Vampires and Werewolves and other supernatural beings.
When Peter Hayes first sees Lucien Delacroix he thinks he's just another gorgeous guy dancing at club Rave, he has no idea the sexy man is a Master Vampire. Peter is not comfortable with vampires, in fact he fears and mistrusts them, so how he could possibly be so attracted to one is a question that will plague him for a while. But over time his attraction to Lucien, and Lucien's obvious attraction and caring for him, will allow him to overcome his fears.
As the weeks go by their mutual attraction will turn into friendship and love. Once the issue of Peter's fears are dealt with they will come together with a fire that could literally burn you as you read their story. They are HOT together. Peter also has to deal with finding his place in Lucien's world and he will learn that there is so much more to Lucien than he ever dreamed of.
This is a world of danger, intrigue, betrayal, blood and sex and Peter will never again be the same. There are situations that must be dealt with such as rogues, hunters and murders and the action is at times very bloody and gory. While Peter and Lucien are most definitely in love with each other this is not a story of boy meets boy, they fall in love and live happily ever after in a totally monogamous relationship. Yes they are in love and committed to each other but they also, both together and separately, share themselves with others.
These are not normal everyday men, even Peter will eventually become something more, not quite a vampire but no longer totally human, and normal behavior just doesn't apply in this world that Ms Lane has created. That is part of what makes this story so different from other vampire books yet so very good also. I for one am very glad she's brought these great characters to life just as they are, at times violent, highly sexual and very loving. View all 9 comments.

Bound by Blood
Bound by Blood is book one out of 4 main books in the Soul Mates series, book 5 "Ascension" is currently in limbo, due to family issues, but will hopefully be finished in the near future 4. Bound by Blood is book one out of 4 main books in the Soul Mates series, book 5 "Ascension" is currently in limbo, due to family issues, but will hopefully be finished in the near future. I must sadly say that even though I know full well not to judge a book by it's cover, they do influence me.
This book has been highly recommended by a few friends a few months ago, but as I didn't find the cover very appealing it has taken me longer to get around to reading it. Though I must mention that I love every other cover of the series. The others are very different, but this just wasn't my style. I could go on. So, I'm sure you have heard of PWP books. I would love to rate this book PWP for porn with plot, but that would probably get confusing.
Don't go in expecting unicorns pooping rainbows and butterflies. There are menages, different partners, pain play, blood play, edging, nipple and cock piercings, sex in public, dubious consent, bondage, Yet even though it may sound like it, it's not just sex in this book. As the main protagonist Peter says in one scene, sex is like a handshake in the book. All the darkness and sex somehow work for this book though. I mean, it's about vampires. Since they have first been written about, vampires have been manifestations of the seductiveness of danger and death.
I think the way this book handles the topic is much more appropriate than glittering, vegetarian vampires. Even if the sex seems overwhelming at times, there is a reason why it plays such an important role in Lucien Delacroix' vampire coven which I won't give away. While the sex is hot, kinky and boundaries-pushing, however, there is also amazing world building that creates it's own interesting vampire mythology for this series. Jourdan Lane describes a cruel, brutal world, making the love that blossoms up between the main characters all the more precious.
There is a bond between them from the beginning, a bond neither of them can deny. Even as Peter's vampire-phobia acts up after learning that the mysterious man he desires is what he fears most after a visit to the vampire bar "The Den". Even as he struggles against it, the bartender can't help to be drawn to the man, but has to learn to accept the monster in him, before he can immerse himself in the new dark and dangerous world of his lover.
The characters and dynamics are interesting and even though some parts of the story were hard to read for me, I wasn't able to put the book out of my hands, because I wanted to know what would happen next. The story was clever and exciting and it felt like whenever I stumbled over a plot hole, an emergency crew came to fill the hole and explain why there really wasn't a hole to begin with.
I didn't have a problem following the story and it never left me bored or uninterested, the sex was plenteous but always different and exciting. Overall, one of the best vampire stories I've read and highly recommendable, if the previous paragraphs didn't scare you off the book. Excited to continue the journey. View all 3 comments. Sadly, this is another reread that doesn't stand the test of time. The writing is still solid, and there's a great plot in the second half of the book.
However, I wasn't as sold on the relationship developement. We see Peter and Lucien meet at the bar, share a dance, we see Peter looking for Lucien, some weird astral projection thing, and then we are told that Lucien's been coming ot the bar every night, but we aren't actually shown any of the details. I've said before, and I'll say it again- thi Sadly, this is another reread that doesn't stand the test of time. Super good, hot, sexy sex, but lots of it. My rating would still be a solid 4, if only the relationship developement had been shown on page, but it's only 3.
I'll see how I feel about it when I'm finished. I'm not reading it constantly. It's got to much sex to be a read at work on my break book. You don't know Jack. The biggest stars, the best looks Let's hit the red carpet. Trevor Thomas is the rebellious kickboxer and childhood friend of Johnny Choi. He is married to Johnny's sister, Lauren, and the two are expecting their first child. Johnny is an undercover narcotics officer who always follows the letter of the law, while his father, Master Young Choi, is the die-hard traditionalist who taught both men martial arts from a young age.
After a drug bust goes awry, the syndicate, fronted by a mysterious man known only as "The Voice," tracks down Johnny and his family. In one heartbreaking instant, his pregnant sister Lauren and father Master Choi are both shot. The baby is lost immediately while Master Choi, severely wounded, lies in a coma. Trevor, out of frustration and emotion, blames his brother-in-law for the tragedy and the two become torn apart. They each set out on different paths in search of their own justice. Johnny relies on his years of police Written by Sean Eichenberg. The acting was atrocious, the directing was horrible.
The story was great and the fighting besides being badly filmed, was great. Every fight movie has to be about some thug fighting his inner demons, and more drama than some Merchant Ivory Production. This one has some of that but it was cool. Cheaply done, start off cheaply done.
The film starts off by introducing the main characters as the hero is supposed to take a dive for a fight but honor-bound he refuses too. He's then jumped by his brother. The Jumper is an undercover cop trying to bust an impregnable drug dealing organization. Apr 13, Ana rated it really liked it Shelves: Demons are attacking the members of paranormal community.

Of course, murder and mayhem have a way of destroying the best laid plans. Not to mention - love. A good story, but everything happened way too fast - it would've made an even better novel where more time could be given not only to the relationship between Morgan and Jace, but to the action and the big battle.
The twist and turns came too close together, I would have liked to see more of Morgan and Jace in a non life-threatening situation. I do like both Morgan and Jace, and the chemistry is off the charts. I really hope Cynthia Eden writes more stories set in this world, hopefully longer ones.
Apr 11, Melissa rated it it was amazing. This is the first book in a set of 5 novellas about werewolves and vampire mates. Cynthia Eden wove a plot about a vampire mating with a werewolf so they could both benefit from the power boost. The chemistry between Morgan and Jace was firework material and I liked how they fit each other well. Their interactions were delightful and the twist over how Jace had been waiting all this time to claim her—ooh, la, la, I need me a werewolf alpha like him.
The twist and climax were fantastic, making the plot an interesting read. And the action was fast-paced and entertaining. Soooo, this is a novella. I'm not a big fan of novella length stories and this is a perfect example of why. It has an interesting plot, a growly alpha wolf who manages to be extra alphay and sexy without being a jerkface, a strong, self-possessed heroine who knows what she wants and goes for it, Machiavellian machinations, some interesting double dealings, a good side character, etc.
There is no character development, no world building, no ti Soooo, this is a novella. There is no character development, no world building, no time for relationships to progress, nothing. So despite some pretty good writing skills this remains a complete let down.
I, of course, don't mean this review to be, 'I don't liked novellas. This is a novella, thus I don't like it. Such a shame too, it could have been really good with another pages. Reading this was like sliding a knife through butter, quick painless and very easy!

Feb 12, The BookWhisperer rated it it was amazing Shelves: Bound by Blood is a spicy and exotic read that will leave you breathless. I was anticipating a fast read, but what I was not prepared for was the absolute awesomeness of this story. As a short story I was expecting an abrupt romance, but what I found was a carefully crafted story that twists and turns around the characters.
Cynthia displays her talent and creativity building a story with a past and a future. Jace has been admiring the Vampire Princess for years. The moment just arose when the Princess walked through the door of a Wolf Bar, and claimed to be his future mate. Little does she know that hers is not the only plan in action, and more importantly when wolves mate it is for life. Feb 06, Megan Fall rated it it was amazing Shelves: Really good for such a short story. I really enjoyed this short read.
Cynthia Eden is new to me and I am now confident to put her other books on my ever growing tbr. Her writing was smooth, easy to read and quite addictive for such a small piece. The passion between Jace and Morgan was HOT, yet believable believable being that there was a good enough back story to understand the immediate attraction.
I don't think its always easy for an author to get a smokin hot read with a deep storyline into something so short - so I give it I really enjoyed this short read. I don't think its always easy for an author to get a smokin hot read with a deep storyline into something so short - so I give it two big thumbs up.

A novella length story about a vampire princess agreeing to bond with an alpha werewolf in order to team up the two enemy groups to fight their common enemy - demons. Interesting premise and some steamy sex scenes. The exchange of "I love you" though seemed a bit sudden - especially on Morgan's part since there was little to explain what attracted her to Jace, other than his hot body and commitment to her.
