"an exciting, unique, rollercoaster of a read"

Wow! Unbound is an exciting, unique, rollercoaster of a read you won't be able to put down! Ms. Devoti creates a fabulous new world filled with vivid imagery, wonderfully complex characters and romance that will melt even the hardest of hearts.

Kara Shane's twin sister, Kelly is missing. Though Kelly has always been the brave, outgoing and adventurous twin, Kara is determined to do everything and anything she can to see her sister home safe. However, a week with no leads to her sisters whereabouts begins to fill Kara with doubt and fear. When she's attacked after leaving a seedy bar with no more answers than when she arrived, Kara wonders if there is any hope for either of them.

Risk Leidolf is a Hellhound, a shapeshifter who can change from man to formidable dog. Sold to a powerful witch, Lusse at the age of eight, Risk has known nothing but anger, hate and torture for the past five hundred years. Yet, he manages to hold onto the sliver of humanity within him, refusing Lusse the satisfaction of beating it down. When Lusse sends him to a bar to retrieve a witch whose powers she'll drain to build up her own, he thinks nothing of it. It has been his job for as long as he could remember. But the moment he sets eyes on his latest prey, he senses this job will be different.

Risk sees his way out of Lusse's hold with Kara, and decides to help her find her twin with the hope of using their combined powers to free him instead. But deceiving Lusse will be no easy trick. He convinces his master he will bring both of the witches to her, as he intends to... after he's used them first. But when he finds himself falling for the tiny witch, will he be able to stick to his well-laid plan? Or will this solitary Hellhound finally find his true master in love, and risk not only his life, but that which he questioned having...a heart?

Unbound is fabulous! Ms. Devoti takes on an entirely new genre with this paranormal adventure, and truly makes it her own. She has done an excellent job of crafting a world and a story that is entertaining, yet believable. Risk and Kara are characters that capture the reader's attention from page 1 and don't let go. She is a perfect heroine, unsure but brave, sassy and full of spunk. Risk is a wounded, deliciously Alpha-male, and completely in love with Kara, making him THE perfect hero. The passion and attraction between these two burns hot and readers will be totally caught up in every twist and turn in the story. There is so much going on, I didn't want to give anything away with this review. But I can say that I eagerly anticipate more stories of these sexy hellhounds and the woman who can bring them to heel. Brava, Ms. Devoti on this fantastic new series!!
