She is drawn to him in a way that frightens her but also excites her. She knows that Kade is keeping something from her, something big, but will Samantha be able to accept Kade and the future he offers?

Bound By Blood is the first in the Caulde Ane Series, and upon a recommendation from a blogger friend, I decided to try this author out. Now I recently discovered her, and this book is free on Amazon and B&N…so I would highly you recommend you jump on over there and get your copy…you won’t regret it. This story was phenomenal in every way, and I had the hardest time putting this one down. It was so unique in its own way, and wasn’t what I expected to find, and I just adored the author’s writing style and she just had a creative way of pulling me into it from the first page. I was hooked instantly and it didn’t take me very long to get into it.

The story starts off with Samantha Moore, leaving her only home, and facing her fear of flying. She lands in Scotland, with the help of a stranger. Samantha has never been comfortable or at ease with anyone apart from her best friend and her family. She isn’t known to flirt or to make great conversation with strangers. But when she arrives in Edinburgh, and meets Kade, she feels more at ease with him than anyone she has ever known, but she doesn’t understand her feelings for him. Kade has been alone for many years, and has devoted his time to leading his people and being the kind of leader his father never was. When his sister falls ill, he knows its a problem in the blood, and he knows of one woman that can help. But he never expected that woman would be his mate. Kade slowly begins to court her, but strange things happen to Sam that she doesn’t fully comprehend, due to her connection to Kade. Kade wonders if she will run when she learns the truth about him.

From the first moment I started reading this story, I was fascinated with the way this author was telling this story. I felt captivated by the characters, and the emotions that were constantly being poured from the story were enticing and just made me yearn for more. I just couldn’t get enough of this one, and I had a ride with these two. I loved Kade and Sam together…they were so different from other couples I have seen, and definitely one of my favorite couples I have read in a while. There was such a pizazz about their chemistry and it just reels you into the story even more. You just crave more, there was a feeling of such decadent sensuality to the story, yet it wasn’t heated at all. It isn’t vivid in detail as far as the bedroom scenes go. The focus of the story is on the relatioship and the romance, yet the author had such a talented way of creating a love tale that won me over completely. Even though there isn’t much in the sex scenes at all, it was nice reading a story that I could just relax into, and enjoy, and not feel like I needed to be in the mood for certain scenes. I could just enjoy the romance and sensuality of the story and feel every vivid detail. ASTOUNDING IN EVERY WAY!!
