The #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Sea Haven novels returns to the circle of the six sisters of the heart, bound by the elements—and to one who possesses the power to inflame the most dangerous passions of all. Flame-haired Lissa Piner is a skilled glass blower whose delicate gift conceals a burning inner strength that can destroy as exquisitely as it can create. Commissioned to design chandeliers for a string of luxury hotels, her remarkable skills have taken her to Italy. But Lissa’s real mission there is a secret. For her entire life has been a lie, leading to a chance to avenge a terrible wrong.   Enlisted as her bodyguard is Casmir Prakenskii, a trained assassin living off the grid. In Lissa, he sees a kindred spirit—something unexpected and wicked, mysterious and sensual. But more than desire is about to bring them together: because both of their pasts cry out for revenge. And for two people with this many secrets, this much passion, and this many enemies, someone is bound to get burned.


Lissa Piner, is a talented glass blower and is slowly building up her reputation and has been invited to share her work in prestigious hotels and her plan is to go without any protection. She doesn’t need any problems from her over protective sisters and brothers in law. And Lissa, at first thought she had finally was home free so she could put into play her real plans, but Gavriil sent his brother Casmir after her to protect her.

He wants to do this one thing for his brothers, to protect this one fiery haired woman whom he knows is his but doesn’t wish to contaminate her life with his past or that he is hunted. Lissa is out to get justice on those that killed her parents, and to stop the threat against the Prakenskii brothers who have a hit out on them. She will do anything to protect her adopted family even become the killer that her uncle trained her to be. But Lissa will learn truths about her past and Casmir will steady her and help her heal the worst of wounds. But the fight they have up ahead to destroy their greatest enemy might be their toughest challenge…

Plot and Story Line

Fire Bound was such a wonderful addition to this series, and I had a blast reading this one. I have been in love with the way Feehan has written this series so far, and Fire Bound was a great story. I was able to obtain it through my library through audio, and so it took some time to get through it, but it was so fun to see the way this book unfolded. There were some heartbreaking moments, especially for Lissa and Casmir. It was quite  hard to see them go through some challenges here. I really adored both of these characters together and see them fall in love. What I really admired was seeing the slow burn romance that these two build through the story. There is a element of danger from beginning to end, which makes sense considering that they are surrounded by enemies. What I adore about the these two being together, was how well they work in harmony together, especially when it comes to missions. Casmir may be overprotective at times, but he also understands her abilities and how important these missions are to her and respects that and I admired that fully. Especially considering that at the beginning he appears to be such a dominant alpha male, but as the story continues you see hidden depths to him and we see the gentle and kind side of him as well as the hard and brutal side. And another treat was seeing the last brother enter the story for a time. And boy I really liked him and it was quite fun to see him and Lissa go at it hehe

The Narration

The narration was a standard job, the voice was satisfying but not one of those that really stands out. But she did a overall decent job, but she did the Russian and European accents pretty well especially with the fancy Russian words that were put in place. It was very interesting experience, because Carol Monda was a new narrator for me to listen to and I did like how she did the perfect job for creating the right moods for the story. Well Done.

The Cover

I have loved all the covers in this series, but this one is a bit “bleh” to me. Nothing significant and I wish they had done a bit more with it like the other classes.

Overall View

Fire Bound is a thrilling and fast paced romance which creates vivid emotion, stunning detail and sexy romance that is guaranteed to bring a smile on your face and leave you excited for book 6!!!!

    Ya know, I don’t really think I have tried this author..and I like the premise and genre for this series. Glad the narration was good, even if it didn’t stand out.

  3. Michele H

    So glad you liked this! I still have it set to review and have been looking forward to getting to know these two characters better. It’s a really cool story arc for this series. I agree on the cover…and is it just me or does the woman look a bit like Keri Russell (from Felicity, The Americans)??

  4. Rowena

    This is another book that I’ve heard such a great things about but it keeps slipping off my radar. After reading your review, it’s back on. This whole series is. Oh, so many books but so little time.

  5. Genesis @ Latte Nights Reviews

    So many books already in this series! I read and loved Water Bound so much that I was looking forward to the rest of the series. But the book had just released and I couldn’t find any info on the rest of the books so I was sad and then forgot to keep tabs on the series. I’m happy to know the books are still great! I’ll have to look for them all. Great review!
