This was a novella so loads of things were crammed into it, the princely Djinn hero trapped by a sorceress and forced into doing her bidding for the sake of saving his two brothers.

The heroine Mira summons him because she wants a man she likes to notice him. For the first time Tariq is attracted to someone he has to corrupt, she seems to care about him, who he is, his past and history and he waffles between corrupting her or just taking his punishment.

The romance didn't work for me, it was fast,...more

This introductory erotic short for the series has an intriguing premise but I wasn't completely won over by this entry.
Djinn Prince Tariq is bound to powerful sorceress Zoraida and tasked to collect souls by granted wishes to the ever changing owners of a magical firebrand amulet. While looking for a way to break his captivity, Tariq finds that the sorceress also holds both of his brothers and the only way to save them is to continue to complete his assignments. Tariq feels he cannot steal the...more

I was happy with this one. Yeah, it's just a novella, but I was good with the way the story played out.

We have Prince Tariq, a Djinn who is forced to work as a pleasure slave by an evil sorceress. By granting lascivious human women their wishes, their souls are corrupted and the sorceress uses their delicious tainted souls to stay young... Or something.

Then we have poor Mira who figures men aren't into her and thinks she needs some lessons in the bedroom. So she uses the magical Firebrand Opal t...more

Bound to Seduction is for readers who like...

...Djinn and all the sexy shenanigans that come with them.
...a lady who wants to feel confident with her sexiness.
...an evil sorceress who is hellbent on stealing power.
...a hero that is torn between the survival of the woman he might love and his family.

Did I mention the sexy times? Because there are some here. Just sayin'. Overall, it's an enjoyable, light read with those aforementioned sexy times. SCORE!

This was actually a novella. It was a good read but there was so much sex in here there wasn't a great deal of time to develop the characters and for love to grow. It was all of a sudden there.

The book was slow to start but then did pick up a bit. I just felt that the love was sudden.

I'm interested enough to read the rest of the series.

a great fast read with lots of plot and lovin'. Gonna have to keep up with this series i think.

Holy scorching hot genies, Batman! I think I’m going to melt!

Honestly, I think it’s on fire from this book. Not only was it short-circuiting my Kindle, but I think my fingertips were burned as well from the heat coming out of the thing. I don’t think there was a single thing about this book that I did not absolutely love. ALL the characters caught me— even the backpack. The story was engrossing. And don’t get me st...more

Ein Mensch, ein Dschinn und eine böse Hexe!

Das ganze mag auf den ersten Blick etwas Klischeehaft wirken: Die recht unschuldige, unerfahrene Menschenfrau. Der sexy, düstere, leidenschaftliche Mann. Die böse Hexe, die besagten Mann einst in die Falle tappen ließ.
Doch grundsätzlich zählt noch immer was aus einer bekannten Konstellation wie dieser gemacht wird und auch hier handelt es sich unverkennbar um Lust de LYX.

Da Mira lernen möchte wie sie begehrenswert für einen Mann sein kann um dieses fü...more

Mit Hilfe eines magischen Steins will sich Mira einen Wunsch erfüllen. Sie will lernen, wie sie für ihren Arbeitskollegen attraktiver werden kann. Mira will den Mann verführen, dem sie schon seit einer gefühlten Ewigkeit hinterher schmachtet. Dabei soll ihr der Dschinn Tariq helfen, der von einer machthungrigen Zauberin an den Stein gebunden wurde. Zunächst ist es Mira etwas peinlich ihren Wunsch zu äußern, von dem Tariq ebenso fasziniert ist, wie von Mira selbst. Doch Tariqs eigentliche Missio...more

Auch dieses Buch habe ich wieder gelesen ohne vorher die Kurzbeschreibung zu studieren und wieder war ich vollkommen über den Inhalt überrascht. Natürlich war mir klar, dass ich mich eine erotische Geschichte erwarten wird, aber dass einer der Protagonisten ein Dschinn ist, damit habe ich definitiv nicht gerechnet. Nun habe ich den perfekten Vergleich zwischen Tine Armbrusters Jugendbuch Dschinn-Roman und Elisabeth Naugthons erotischer Dschinn Kurzgeschichte. Und obwohl eine Kurzgeschichte natü...more

Grundidee der Handlung:
Mira möchte sich mit Hilfe eines Feueropals sich einen Mann wünschen, der ihr beibringen soll, wie man einen Mann richtig verführen und verzaubern kann.
Von einer geheimnisvollen Frau bekommt sie den Stein und erklärt Mira was sie zu tun hat. Wenn der Feueropal verschwindet, bedeutet es, dass ihr Wunsch erfüllt wurde.
Tariq, ein Dschinn, der pure Erotik ausstrahlt, soll ihr den Wunsch erfüllen. Doch bevor er dies macht, möchte er sie zuerst verführen. Er führt Mira in ein...more

Apr 30, 2013 Leslie rated it 4 of 5 stars Recommends it for: Those wanting a light, fun, smexy read.
If you want a fun, sexy, romantic short book, this book is for you. The short length of this book is meant to be an introduction to the Firebrand series. If the series is anything like this book, then it's a series I will gladly turn to.

Considering the shortness of the story, it was packed with a lot of drama, conflict, and of course love scenes. The story was all around well written. This was the first book I've read in which the idea of a djinn was incorporated. It was something different for...more

The story line was very imaginative. The beginning was a bit slow. I know that the reader needs the history but, I felt the history went a little too long.

Mira's character was very clever. She knew what and who she wanted and was desperate to get on with her life. She soon figured out that she was looking at her life in quiet the wrong way.

Tariq's character is a demon who needs to be released but he has lost his confidence and his hope. Until he is summoned by Mira. Where he soon realizes this...more

The two main characters in Bound to Seduction are both good people caught in the evil spun by the Firebrand Opals. Mira Dawson wants to be found attractive by a man she works with and being a shy girl does not feel confident she can attract him. She acquires a Firebrand Opal and Tariq, the Djinn Prince that has been made a slave by en evil being from his world. She controls him and drains him of his magic by putting a Firebrand Opal around his neck. It is up to Mira to figure out how to help him...more

Oh my goodness this was a HOT book. It had the evil sorceress, a trapped genie and the heroine! Ms. Naughton put a wonderful twist on a fairy tale. It is a must read for all fans of good conquering evil!

First we have the djinni or genie Tariq, who is being held captive by Zoraida. Zoraida is having Tariq collect souls so she can remain young forever. Enter Mira, she goes to find a necklace that she has heard about that so she can learn how to attract a man and keep him. She gets the necklace th...more

Mira is skeptical when she pursues an object that is supposed to grant her wishes, but she knows just what she's going to wish for - the confidence to go after the hot guy at work - even though she's warned that magic comes at a price. But when the luscious Djinn Tariq turns up asking for her command, her wishes become all about the sexy Djinn.

I finally finished this after putting it aside for a bit, not that it was bad, I just wasn't in the mood for as much smexy-ness as Bound to Seduction star...more

Story:
When Mira Dawson brings the firebrand opal with her home she hopes it will make her wish come true. She's lonely and wants the attention of a man. What she least of all expected was a djinn coming along with the opal to fulfill her every command.

Cover:
It's a beautiful cover and it looks professional. It introduces the first book well.

This was a nice quick read. Decent novella, will look for the others in the series. I liked Tariq and Mira together.

I thought this was a great sexy story written by a fantastic author. well worth the read i believe that followers and fans of elisabeth's work will enjoy this addition.

I love Elisabeth Naughton. When I discovered her (not to long ago) I devoured several book starting with "Wait for me" and eventually came up for air. I like this book a lot. Tariq (the leading man candy) is a hunk a hunk o'burnin love. Gorgeous, loyal and tortured-literally..you can't help but love him. Mira was a treat-soft and strong in all the right places. The story itself was good I just wished there was more of it. It seemed to be over to fast or perhaps that's just the indication of a go...more

Sounds crazy but I actually like this book. I got it free on my kindle back at the beginning of the year and just recently realized I hadn't read it (still trying to catch up in my multiple book collection). I enjoyed this from cover to close and my still get the next book in the series. This is about a Djinn (yes, people a genie..LOL) but he has been captured by a witch and made to do what she ever she tells him too until his finally falls in love. His woman breaks him free finally but his brot...more

Aus der "Lust de LYX" Reihe, Gratis e-book und wunderbar verwirrendes Cover im "Shades of Grey"-Stil.
Das alles hätte mich eigentlich davon abhalten müssen, das Buch zu lesen aber - naja - es war halt eben gratis!

Und umso überraschender war dann letztendlich der Inahalt de Buchs!
Paranormal Romance vom Feinsten!
Die Charaktere waren sympathisch, die Handlung zwar nicht originell aber nett und nachvollziehbar-
Ach, und: es geht nicht nur um Sex - juhu!

Oh, und Djinns gehören jetzt nach Werwölfen zu me...more

I could not put this one down!!

Where to start? I love Elisabeth Naughton' s books. Her writing, the story, so clearly and well written.

A story about a Djinni, a human and a sorceress. While trying to think of what to say to not have spoilers, I guess I will say this. Tariq wanting a way out of slavery and trying to save his brothers. Mira, just wanting to be desired and loved. Mira and Tariq' s paths cross through the opal. Mira found a way to free him from the sorceress and in the end frees h...more

This review will cover all three books in this series, as I purchased them as a bundle.

Decent set up, steamy sex, but the weak world-building and inconsistent plotting made it only a meh. It really bothered me that one moment, the characters were speaking in a more archaic style and using older language, and then, suddenly, zippers. Crazy sword battle and talk of castles, kings and queens ... and then F-bomb. It just didn't fit together. But the sex was spicy. So there's that.

A djinn, Tariq, of ancient tribe has been captured and tortured by a sorceress. Tariq has no choice he must grant wishes to humans but why and at what costs?
Mari, an architect, stumbles in to speciality store in search of help from a special amulet but why and what could it do.

Thru the amulet wishes are granted by Tariq but at what cost?

The book is currently a kindle freebie. It was an interesting & enjoyable read....

"Bound to Seduction" by Elisabeth Naughton. Novella 1 in the Firebrand series.

Really really enjoyed this novella. Hard hitting and fast paced. Great chemistry between the main characters, Tariq and Mira.

Only thing I had to get used to was the names and language. Pretty sure it's Arabian? But once I got used to it, it wasn't a problem.

Overall, I really liked this novella and I will continue reading the rest of the trilogy.
Laurie London
A fast, fun, erotic paranormal romance. I read it in one sitting while on vacation.

I love Elisabeth's books and this was no exception. The hero was hot and tortured and had an impossible obstacle to overcome. I was like, how in the world are these two going to get together in the end??? But, believe me, they do.

The Firebrand world is complex and the heroes are to die for. I can't wait to read the next book.
Claudia
This one was a fast-paced, steamy read, but there was something I missed.. The characters were not developed enough for my liking, the whole story was more or less just about the sex. Woukd have liked to read more about the background stories and family members of the characters, of Prince Tariq's surroundings and the creatures living in his realm, more about his brothers and the the evil witch.
