What’s the price of sin?

Human Paige Sloan once loved werewolf Drake Wyler more than life, but then that life was taken away from her. Attacked by vampires, Paige was bitten, and, on a cold, dark night, the life she’d known ended. She was reborn as a vampire—a werewolf’s deadliest enemy.

Paige ran from the vampires who attacked her, and she ran away from her lover. She didn’

Enjoyed it second time around as well. Quick, but sexy book with a great hero and heroine.

However, I have to mark it down from my original 5 star. I must have missed the references the first time around (or wasn't bothered by them), but apparently, the hero was NOT celibate during the separation. That always makes me sad, especially since the heroine was basically suffering all that time. Of course, he had no reason to stay celibate since she left him, but still.....I don't li

I love Cynthia Eden’s voice. I think that the way she writes always keeps me on the edge of my seat, whether it’s a romantic suspense, or a paranormal romance, or both.

I normally hate "the Big Misunderstanding" in a romance, but this author has a way of leaking out bits of the past, or the Misunderstanding to the characters, bit by bit, and it no longer is such a Big Misunderstanding. It becomes something that everyone can deal with, rationally, y

Trolling Browsing through the free eBooks section is one of my favorite pastimes when I have a free hour. Usually, the small novellas are mediocre and brainless, something to detox me from any real thinking. Upon finding this fine porn story in my pursuit of asshattedness, I was pleasantly surprised.

What I Liked: Paige is actually, you know, sort of kind of badass which is not at all what I was expecting. The world of vampires and werewolves in this, though only barely fleshed out due to the sho

I've really enjoy Eden's vampire/werewolf romances. All three have been great and pack such a punch in under 200 pages.

Drake Wyler and Paige Sloan's story is a heartbreaking one because they were taken from the other and suffered so much in the ten years that has past.

Once Drake, 21, knew that then 19 year old Page was the one for him, he shared his secret of being a werewolf with her. He's plans of making her his mate was taken from him and for ten years he always believed she just couldn't h

Cynthia Eden continues her sexy and exciting Bound series with Bound in Sin and does not disappoint!

Each novella is set up perfectly as a stand-alone so you can jump right in without feeling lost.
Paige Sloan was suppose to meet her werewolf lover, Drake Wyler, one night but never showed. Now, years later she arrives in Alaska at, now alpha, Drake’s front door. No longer human, but vampire, Drake demands answers from Paige but only receives half of the story because Paige is keeping the other ha

Geçekten hiş bir kısa hikayeydi.Vampir kurtadam çıkmazını okumayı ne kadar sevgimi bana hatırlatacak kadarda güzeldi. Yazar hem durumun zorluğunu anlatıp hemde karakterlerin sevgisini bu kısacık hikayeye sığdırmıştı.

Özellikle çizdiği güçlü vampir ve daha güçlü kurt adam karakteri çok hoşuma gitti. Tek saçma gelen şey herkes güçlüyse o zaman av kim? Tabi yazar bun ada bir kalıp bulmuştu ama bana yeterli gelmedi.

As good as the last one I'm not really into misunderstandings and previous history and all that but I thought it was great in this book and honestly I didn't even feel like I missed anything since I usually prefer reading about the characters meeting for the first time. Paige and Drake had this instant chemistry thing going on and don't get me started on the steam , I enjoyed those characters a lot. I'm really loving those novellas.

Seriously becoming addicted to these short stories by Cynthia Eden as they are so good! I have yet to read one that I haven't liked or even enjoyed!
I love the mix of Ms Eden's Vampire and Werewolf stories and how she has portrayed them in a different light compared to others.
Ms Eden writes these novellas so well and they are super cheap to read too I can't help but automatically download one to my Kindle as soon as I see a new one has become available!

I accidentally read these out of order, but it turned out not to be a problem. This is the third in the series, but can and was read out of order or stand alone.

This is exactly how a novella should be is what I thought as this one leaped into the action revealing what is really going on a little at a time so that as you turn each plot corner a new and delightful surprise awaits.

The story begins with a vampire, Paige, coming to the dangerous lair of the werewolves' alpha, Drake to speak to him ab

I got this for free from All Romance Ebooks

Seems with each book the heroine is running from danger, straight into the arms of a delicious werewolf male :)

The last (?) book in this series didn't disappoint in terms of lust and suspense. Paige was supposed to become Drake's mate, but then she disappeared leaving him heartbroken. She was a human, something the former alpha Jeremiah despised. Now Paige is back and a vampire. She will stop at nothing to protect Drake from the danger that's about to

A friend of mine and I were testing out the lending possibilities of some of our kindle ebooks, and this is one she lent me. This novella is actually the 3rd in the vampire/werewolf trilogy, so I've started out of order. The story grabbed me from the start, and though there was a history between Paige and Drake that had happened before this story, the author does a good job of filling in the details!

Werewolves and vampires are natural enemies, so it's unusual for a vampire to show up at a werewo

Ten years ago Paige was once a human who loved a werewolf, Drake. Despite his alpha's ban on their relationship, Drake knew Paige was his mate, and planned to run away with her. Then, on the night they were supposed to meet, Paige never showed up.

Thinking she has changed her mind and abandoned him, Drake has both hated and loved her for the last decade. In actuality, Drake's alpha (he was an evil wanker) sold her out to vampires and she was tortured and eventually turned. Paige has stayed away f

This was a quick read but I did enjoy the forbidden love story between a vampire and a werewolf. I really felt for Paige, who was human but because of a betrayal was turned into a vampire, effectively taking her away from her love, her mate, Drake. After 10 years she returns to ask for his help and though it had been a long time and Drake is angry with her for disappearing all those years, he's still in love with her.

I gave this four stars not because there was anything wrong with it, but because it was a shorter story, the over all series is enticing, I just wish the books were longer.

Any time there are Vampires, Werewolves and Demons all living in one world, great stories are sure to ensue.

This particular story is about Paige, a human turned vampire, going back to her past to try and protect the love of her youth from the pure blood that turned her. She returns not knowing if she will be killed on sight

Bound in Sin is another great novella in the Bound series.

Paige Sloan had loved werewolf Drake Wyler and, after she had been changed into a vampire, she knew she would never be able to back to her lover. But when she hears Drake’s life is in danger, she knows she has to return to Alaska to help him.

Drake Wyler never knew why Paige had left him and he certainly never expected she would show up on his door step years later as a vampire. He demands answers, why she had disappeared and why she has r

I really loved this one!

Paige and Drake had a lot of history. With the other books in this series, the couples have this instant connection, which although I enjoy that, sometimes I struggle to feel that emotional connection because it all happens so fast. Because of their history in this, the love is already there, so I felt everything. The pain, the anger and the love.

I've disliked the action side in a couple of the books in this series but I really liked the action in this one. It had a goo

Like the rest in this series, this book left me breathless and wanting more. The action was fully entertaining. Paige loved Drake when she was a girl and still does. Only she is a vampire now and after ten long years on the run she finally runs to him. She says she is there for his protection, but that's not entirely true. She can't tell him all her secrets because she doesn't want him to think of her as anything other than the girl that left him behind. But Drake knows. He knows that she's ...more

I'm in love! Oh, I'm getting addicted to this series.

Loved the story! It is so sweet. It's kind of unique too because hero and heroine had a history together and something happened that made them separated. Then, they met again! And awwwww the meeting was mixed with overwhelming and heart breaking. At the same time, it was heart warming too. Because of what happened, they both became tortured, damaged souls. I'm sucker for that. Their haunted pasts, reading them made my heart clenched. So

Paige and Drake’s story is heartbreaking. Torn apart at a young age, betrayal, secrets and lies are shoved between them. Ten years has gone by and their love has never died, but for Drake neither has the anger. Another great read that jumps straight into the meat of the story and this world, we find Paige coming to Drake for help. Nothing is quite as it seems, and it was nice to see these two finding each other again and clearing up what really went down that fateful night. Another fantastic ...more

This was a short story but it had an interesting twisting plot line. I would call this book more paranormal erotica than romance though, the author really heats up the pages between the two main characters, the author did a great job relaying the level of emotions these two feel for each other. I liked her writing style enough to go looking for a longer book to read. If your looking for a easy read that has a happily ever after ending then this should be right up your alley.

Decent short read. 87 pages can only get you so much character depth but the author managed to include enough plot, history, & overall development to make it entertaining.

Purchased the Fever Bound bundle included books 1-4 in this series.
I think this is my favorite of the series. I really liked Paige and Drake both, but the reunited lovers plot really did it for me. I loved the angst and the protectiveness on both sides.
Loved it. Hate how short it is but still loved it.

This was a beautiful read. I'm so glad I found this book and it's certainly one you have to read. A nice short little story that was surprisingly well-stocked and full. I definitely didn't feel like it had only 87 pages.


What I fell in love with

I loved the hero, Drake. Love his name as well, don't know why but it's adorable. Anyway, he was a great alpha to read and whilst as an alphahe was pretty temperamental due to Paige's return, as a mate and hero in itself I loved to read about him. He was s

Review originally posted on Reader's Edyn (Blogspot) ...

Paige is a vampire … she didn’t used to be, but fate sometimes can be cruel. She was (and still is) in love with Drake, a werewolf who had promised to be her mate. Drake didn’t care that Paige was a human, just that she loved him and did not give a fig that he was a werewolf. But vampires are the hated enemy of werewolves, so when Paige is turned against her own will, she runs, unable to face Drake and the fury of his pack. Ten years later

“She wrapped her legs around his hips. Wrapped her arms around his shoulders. And she kissed him. This time, the pleasure was his. A deep, wrenching pleasure that washed over him as he climaxed inside of her. The release blinded him and fucking seemed to gut him as it went on and on, hollowing out his body. When the climax ended, he didn’t release her. Because he wasn’t letting her go, not ever again.” 8 likes
