Book Description:

New York Times and USA TODAY bestselling author Larissa Ione sets the night on fire with a thrilling new novel of irresistible hungers and immortal enemies in a world as sensual and dark as her Demonica series ...

THE FUTURE OF HIS TRIBE
Leader of the vampire clan MoonBound, Hunter will do what he must to save his people from extinction - or worse, a torturous eternity as vampire slaves and subjects of human experimentation. To keep his enemies at bay, he has agreed to mate a rival clan leader's daughter in return for peace between the clans and an ally in the looming war with the humans.

THE LOVER OF HIS SOUL
But survival comes at a price. First, Hunter must break an ancient curse by successfully negotiating three deadly tests. Then he must resist the searing passions of the gorgeous vampire warrior he despises but is bound to mate. Will Hunter stay true to his word? Or will he risk everything for the woman he really loves: the vampire seductress's identical twin sister?


My Thoughts

I really liked this one! Initially, I thought this new series for Larissa Ione couldn’t stand a chance next to her Demonica series, but I was wrong. Although I still LOVE the Demonica series, the Moonbound Clan Vampires is a strong contender.

I had read Bound by Night and really enjoyed it, but Chained by Night is even better. Hunter is one great character and Ione has a lot to work with him, but the star for me was Aylin; a truly wonderful, strong heroine. Chained by Night has all that I could ever ask for in a paranormal romance; wonderful characters, a kickass world, drama, an evil (or not) twin, and a strong and twisted enemy. A great and exciting read!

Book Description:

Wedding bells are ringing in Fool's Gold, but not for Nevada Hendrix. Her triplet sisters are engaged, and even her mother has a more active love life than she does. Determined to make a fresh start, she applies for her dream job, only to discover that her new boss is her first love. Maybe she could overlook the fact that they've seen each other naked, but she'll never forget the way he broke her heart.

Tucker Janack agrees to Nevada's "business only" ground rules. After all, love is a trap that the construction millionaire has avoided his whole life. But when great business partners turn out to be so much more, every rule gets broken. Will either of them be willing to try again or will their past get in the way?


My Thoughts:

I really enjoy a good love story and Susan Mallery never fails to deliver one.  I especially love those second chance stories and Nevada and Tucker’s is definitely one of those.

Only His is the 6th book in the Fool’s Gold Series, but is the third book in a grouping (Only Mine, Only Hers and Only His), that feature sisters that happen to be triplets.  Nevada Hendricks works in the construction industry and her new boss, Tucker Janack, just happens to be a mistake best left in the past.  At least that is what Nevada thinks.

Both Nevada and Tucker’s relationship has the ease of long friendship and their banter is so effortless you just know these two should be together.  The two do not have the all-out passionate fireworks that are often written about; but for these two I don’t think the passionate romance would have worked as well for them.

Tusker’s old girlfriend and Nevada’s old friend, Cat, makes a surprise visit to Fool’s gold and creates angst for the pair.  Tucker’s past relationship with Cat, which had the intensity of a nuclear reaction, is both a source of embarrassment and distrust of relationships for Tucker.  His ability to work, talk and Nevada’s spirit is what attracts him to her and eventually is the cause of his love for her.

There are a lot of sideline stories going on in this book. Perhaps way more than are necessary. Although I for one am happy with Jo’s story.

Fool’s Gold is a series that I will continue to read and it looks like there are plenty of potential storylines.  If you love contemporary small town romance and have not checked this series out; you should do so.
