"When in doubt, tie them up!"

The third of the Stormy Weather Series brings us Laurent Deveraux and the love he's held on to for centuries, Violet. While Laurent is overjoyed to see Violet again, he's a bit dismayed that she's now a vampire who has been contracted to kill him. She has no memory of her former life before becoming a vampire and is linked with her sire who wants her for his own bidding.

I enjoyed this tale above and beyond the first two in the series. Laurent is aggressive in his pursuit of Violet, and she is unsure why she can't kill him as she's done in the past. The pace is fast, the sex is hot, and the interaction between the two is engaging. I think Laurent is my favorite Deveraux. He uses passion to unlock the memories that have been withheld from Violet.

There was much more to this tale than sex or even a lost love. It was a connection of two people that has withstood the test of time, absence, and even rebirth as a new being. Selena Blake did a wonderful job with Bound and Determined. I look forward to reading future works by Ms. Blake.
