Nicole Martin was only eight years old when the vampire slaves rose up in rebellion and killed her family. Now she devotes her life to finding a vaccine against vampirism, hoping to wipe out her memories—along with every bloodsucker on the planet. But there’s one thing she cannot destroy: her searing, undeniable attraction for the one man she should hate and fear the most . . .

A member of the renegade vampire MoonBound Clan, Riker is haunted by demons of his own. When he recognizes Nicole and remembers how her family enslaved his loved ones, his heart burns for vengeance. But when he kidnaps Nicole and holds her in a secret lair, his mortal enemy becomes his soul obsession, his greatest temptation, and, perhaps, his only salvation—a hot-blooded lover who could heal him with her touch . . . or bury him forever.

Ione’s Bound By Night follows Nicole, a human who HATES vampires, with good reason, and Riker, a vampire who hates Nicole’s family, again, for good reason. So you know there is going to be a lot of back and forth, a lot of tension, and a lot of fighting of feelings before they finally give in.

This story is unique in that not only are vampires not hidden from society, they are actually considered a lower class, not even treated with human compassion by most of the world. They are little more than domesticated animals, that can be used as house servants. Which gave the story a unique twist I hadn’t seen before.

However I did find the characters a little flat and predictable. Their “relationship” as it is, can really only be explained by Stockholm Syndrome. As often as it happens in Paranormal Romance, the whole falling in love with your kidnapper thing has to be done right, and in this instance it fell a little short.

Overall, this was an enjoyable read however, and I would recommend it to anyone looking for an easy to read PNR.
