About Bound to Darkness:
BOUND TO DARKNESS
Midnight Breed: Book 13
The "strikingly original" (Booklist) Midnight Breed vampire romance series continues with a pulse-pounding novel of paranormal passion and suspense from New York Times and #1 international bestselling author Lara Adrian.
Carys Chase is accustomed to making her own rules and letting her heart lead the way--no matter what anyone else has to say about it. A rare Breed female and a daywalker as well, headstrong, beautiful Carys is one of the most powerful of her kind. She lives passionately and loves without limits, especially when it comes to the lethal cage-fighting Breed warrior called Rune.
Unbeatable in the ring, Rune exists in a brutal world of blood and bone and death. He’s made his share of enemies both in and out of the arena, and his secrets run as deep and turbulent as his past. A dangerous loner who has survived by his fists and fangs, Rune has never allowed anyone to get too close to him...until Carys. But when the bodies buried in his past rise up to threaten his present, Rune must choose between betraying Carys’s trust or putting her in the crosshairs of a battle neither of them can hope to win on their own.

Izzy had a holy crap moment as the gun settled in her hands. It was cold, but solid. She was careful to aim the gun away from them both, even though there wasn't a magazine in yet. He handed her one, and she pushed it in. "Now the mag is in, but the gun still isn't loaded. It won't fire. To load it, you need to pull the slide back. Like this," Conlin said as he demonstrated on his own weapon. Izzy pulled the slide back completely and released. She heard a solid click as the first bullet slid into place. “To aim you’re going to look across the top of the gun, lining up the dot at the front of the barrel into the U-shaped rear sight with dots on either side. You want to keep all three dots in a flat, evenly-spaced horizontal line, and then put the center dot where you want the bullet to go. The trick is—focus on the dots, not at the target. There’s going to be—" She fired the weapon before he finished. She had to get over her fear and the more he talked, the more her arms were shaking. "—a kick." She heard him finish. No shit there was a kick.
"Uh…damn. Nice shot." Conlin said from behind her.
She looked up at the target and saw the bullet hole slightly above the red bull's eye in the center. Izzy aimed again, her second shot landing dead center. She kept firing until she pulled the trigger and nothing happened. "I think it’s stuck."
Looking back at Conlin, one corner of his lips quirked into a smile. "Not stuck, babe. You’re just out of ammo." Her body tensed as he stepped behind her and his hands came to rest on top of the weapon. "To change clips, push this button here to drop the clip out." He pushed and let it fall into his hand.
She had to remember to breathe. He was so close to her now, his body not an inch from her back. She could feel the heat, felt surrounded by it. "Then you slip the new mag in." She watched his long fingers insert the new magazine. It felt intimate somehow, as if she were a voyeur.
Guns were not sexy.
Guns were dangerous, but his hand on one was erotic as hell. His voice had grown husky as he whispered in her ear, "You know, I don't know whether to be scared or turned on. You’re a damn good shot." He pressed his body up against her back, and it was obvious the later had won out. "Now try again." He was gone in an instant, taking all the heat with him.
