Bound by Night by Amanda Ashley
Life with Elena's Uncle, Tavian, had just went from bad to worse. She knew he was a vile man that forced himself upon his own daughter, and was just biding his time until he could do the same with her. After the sudden disappearance of her cousin Jenica, her Uncle proposed marriage and a threat that he would have her. Scared for her life, she ran away to the dark mysterious castle on the hill. Wolfram Castle.
Drake Sherrad has lived many years alone, certainly he has been with many women. But once he laid eyes on Elena lying on his sofa, he knew life would never be the same. Lust, longing, and love were all new emotions for him. And he would do whatever it took to make her happy, even denying his Sire. Punishment would be miserable, but he would do it all for her. He would sacrifice himself and his happiness just to make sure she would never be harmed. All this he knew before she even discovered what he was.
Vampire or Rapist, those were the only two decisions she had. Stay with a Vampire and risk death by Drake draining her dry; or go back home to her psychotic Uncle who would rape her and make her life unbearable? Drake truly loved her and never meant her any harm, but there are so many uncertainties... so many reasons they should not be together, but as you well know the heart wants what it will. Too bad there are always bad people in the world that don't want to share in that happiness but make it worse, and let me tell you this is no easy little love story for Drake, and Elena. Especially when something happens that proves to be fatal for Elena.
Bound by Night, written by Amanda Ashley is absolutely captivating! It was addictive, dramatic, and best of all, focused on a true love story. I would tell myself that it was time to go to bed, and after just one more chapter, I would put it down until tomorrow... 5 or 6 chapters later I'd finally resign and put it down. But the next morning it was right back in my hands. I was so glad to see that there will be another book following this one. Amanda Ashley is an exceptional writer, her stories only get better with each new book she puts out. I always recommend her books, and you won't be disappointed with Bound by Night. 5 Hearts
