Review: Bound by Blood - - Cynthia Eden

Bound by Blood - - Cynthia Eden

Amazon Product Description:
It's an Immortal War...

Vampires and werewolves have been blood enemies for centuries, but now a new threat is rising...demons are escaping from hell and these demons are intent on wiping out both the vamps and the werewolves.

When you have no one to trust...

In order to stop the demons, pureblood vampire princess Morgan LaBeaux agrees to the treaty offered by werewolf alpha Jace Vaughn. She'll mate with him, share her blood with him...and in return, the wolves will aid the vampires in this battle.

The enemy of my enemy is my husband...

But Morgan doesn't realize just how dangerous the wolves can truly be. Jace has been waiting years to claim her. He's set a trap for his princess, and now that he has her, Jace doesn't plan to let her go.  He'll send the demons back to hell, and he'll keep his vampiress--forever.

Because the blood binds all.

Warning: This novella is a sexy paranormal romance. As such, it contains vampires, werewolves, and demons--oh, my! It also contains hot sex and adult language. You have been warned!

My thoughts:
The first thought when I finished this novella was, "I wish this wasn't over!"
The plot developed rapidly.  The storyline was interesting and the characters captivating!  I fell in love with Jace and Morgan right away.  Morgan is tough, brave, and determined.  Jace is a match for traits.  They are both strong willed and a bit jaded - perfect for each other.  Their relationship goes 0 to 60 in a couple seconds, but it had to to fit into the story.  They bring great things to each other, their relationship and their people.  With all the betrayal and conspiracy - trust and faith come hard to these characters - but they find both in each other.

The only downside to a story that I truly enjoyed was the length.  I feel that if the story had been fleshed out a bit more - background or more time between Morgan walking into the bar and her falling into hell - it could have developed into more.  

This was my first story by Cynthia Eden.  Can't wait to read more from this author!
