Full review to come.

Content: Sketchy Clean. Moderate language. Moderate innuendos. Fade to black.
Okay, I’ll admit it. I’m a big fan of fairy tales, folklore and romance. Yes, I read the Twilight series, and I’m currently reading The Lunar Chronicles, so I like some action too. So something on the paranormal isn’t out of my range when I pick something to read. Even so, the story has to be believable and for me and it has to meet my four “No” rating: No profanity, no explicit sex, no crude humor, and no violence. That being said, I am not a prude. Frankly, profanity is not professional. I’m n ...more

* I received an ebook in exchange for an honest review. *

I have loved the Cauld Ane series from the very beginning and have been teetering on the edge of emotional distress waiting for a new book, but now I finally have it and it was sooooo worth the wait!! I loved each and every aspect of it. It was emotional, it was distressing, it was a bit of a roller coaster ride, but it was amazing!

Author Tracey Jane Jackson doesn't disappoint the readers in any way with this new addition to the Cauld Ane.

I don't usually like paranormal books, but this one is the exception to the rule. I have followed this author and these series since reading the first one, Bound By Blood - Samantha and Kade (they are my favourite, always has been, always will be)

To really follow book #7, to know what is going on, you really have to read from book #1, you will not be disappointed.

I thoroughly enjoyed Thane and Sydney's book, if this is the last book i am sad to see it end, but

I have to say that I liked Thane so much more than I thought I would! Thane has been mentioned several times in the past, and I loved what he did in Charlotte's story, but we've never really met him before so I wasn't positive what to expect. He reminded me of Connal in some ways because he was a bit more emotional and sensitive than some of the other heroes. He is also still incredibly protective, which is another Cauld Ane trait. He and Sydney are a good match, and I liked their banter and che ...more

I am bound to the Cauld Ane. Are you??? The Cauld Ane are a unique race. They live around a thousand years. They can't handle temperatures above 68 degrees. A Cauld Ane can mate with a human but than she is transformed into Cauld Ane. Each member has special gifts that can pass on to their mate making for unique matings and stories. If you have never read any of the series, you can begin your addiction with Bound by Blood, book one in the Cauld Ane.

I liked Thane and Sydney.

After losing her remaining parent, Sydney moves to the UK with her Uncle and his family. After getting lost, she ends up at a hotel where there is a press junket being held for Thane's latest movie. After a case of mistaken identity - the two meet and Thane knows immediately that she is his mate. What follows is Sydney being brought into the world of the Cauld Ane. We learn that all is not as it first appeared with her mother's death and that provides a bit of s

Thane’s mate walks into his life and then runs right back out again. Sydney can’t believe it when she meets one of the biggest movie stars in the world, she feels inadequate so she runs away when he is distracted. Their second meeting goes much better than the first, but will an unknown threat end their budding relationship? Thane seemed really sweet and he worked to fulfill all of Sydney’s needs. Sydney was a strong woman, but her emotions were a little out of control. I enjoyed seeing where al ...more

Love it. This story introduces us to an entirely new family of Cauld Ane people. This one is all about Thane Allen, the movie star we met in Book 3. He's the one who was at Brody's club the night Shannon Fraser's Aunt Anna attacked the girl. Anyway, this story is a very good one. Thane and Sydney are great characters. Amazingly, she doesn't have as much of a problem believing the whole Cauld Ane story as the girls did. She accepts it rather quickly, but that's not saying that their story is any ...more

This is Sydney and Thane’s book. Thane is a movie start that we met in previous Claude Ane books. Sydney has just had her life turned upside down by the sudden loss of her mother, and decides to move to London to be closer to the only family she has left. Thane and Sydney met by accident but he knows right away that she is his mate. Sydney doesn’t think a famous movie star could be truly interested in her. Can Thane convince her that she is his mate? With an unknown threat against her will they ...more

Another great addition to the Cauld Ane Series! I had been wondering when we would get a book for Thane and this one did not disappoint! Sydney is a spunky heroine who has seen tragedy in her life and Thane is a great balance of an alpha with a sensitive side. Thane and Sydney have great chemistry and it was a joy to read their romance progress. It is always great catching up with the rest of the characters from the series. There is also a great movie reference in there. This book has insta-love ...more

Another great piece to the Cauld Ane puzzle. I thoroughly enjoy this series and look forward to catching up with old friends, seeing what they've been up to while getting to know the others that we've just had glimpses of previously. This one is no different.
While Thane and Sydney didn't necessarily face the roadblocks some of the others faced, their issues were just as difficult for them. Death, secrets, lies, they all play a part. A little bit of action and a whole lot of steam ties this one a

Thane and Sydney....

This was another great story told by Piper Davenport. There's a lot that you won't see, a lot you won't know.
She definitely knows how to put a story together that will keep you turning the pages, and she doesn't disappoint with Thane and Sydney's story.
I also love how she manages to weave all the previous characters into every story she writes!

I can't wait to see who is coming to these Vikings next! Eeek!
Can I have one Piper??? Please????

Bound by Thane

I love this series. Each book continues to complement the previous. This book is Thane and Sidney's. Thane is use to having the world at his feet, but meets his match in Sidney. Thane has everything, Sidney doesn't think he could possibly want her. Sidney has lost so much. This is an exciting fun book you will surely enjoy. I just want to know where I can get my own Cauld Ane???

Bound for Light was a good addition to Cauld Ane Series but not my favorite. Thane Allen is the male lead and Sydney Warren is the female lead. Liked the storyline but could do without the female lead . Her character changed emotions so fast it was hard to keep up and the banter between the couple seemed forced at times. I was glad the previous characters within the series were included with this book. Happy Reading!!!!

Another good addition

This addition to the series I really enjoyed. I don’t think the telling of his true age was remotely realistic to the storyline of her being human. I think the author has gotten too complacent in that regard. However, the rest of the story was above exceptional. It was fresh, exciting and very enjoyable. Good that others had cameos during the conversion. Really do enjoy this series.

An anti climatic ending to the series

This appears to be the ending to the series. It has the feel of an unnecessary add on as it doesn’t really add to the existing universe other than babies being born to original characters. The storyline in this one is pointless and the female MC not particularly likable. Good thing it’s at the end as it certainly wouldn’t have encouraged me to continue with the series.

Thane is a huge movie star and Sydney has just moved from America. Her parents are gone and she is staying with her uncle and aunt. She ends up at one of Thane’s interviews and feels her cousin is setting her up. But Lucy isn’t doing anything. Thane recognizes Sydney as his mate and isn’t taking no for an answer. But there are questions concerning the death of Sydney’s mother and Thane insists on protecting her. Another good story in the series.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It was such a smooth even read. I found this book so refreshing even though it had all the essentials of this series drama, etc. This one just had a different feel to it for me. Like it was easy for these two not to much stress. Very relaxing great read 👍. I am telling you if you have not tried this series you are missing out

Another fantastic book in one of the best book series to be published. I really loved Thane and Sydney as a couple, the chemistry and banter between them will leave you smiling and fanning yourself. What is also great about this book is Piper gives us little snippets from some of our favourites from past books.

When Sydney loses both of her parents she whisked to London to live with her aunt and uncle. When mistaken identity brings her face to face with actor Thane Allen, it seems too good to be true for Sydney. When her life is put in danger Thane is there to save her but will she open her heart to him? I'm so glad Thane got his own book. I absolutely love this series and everyone should read it. ...more

I know that I say this every time but this book has truly been my favorite so far! Thane and Sydney are fantastic! What happens when a man the public loves meets the woman meant for him? This book is the love story that unfolds. They are meant to be together forever but will the danger swirling around her allow that? Loved it!

Safe, the H seems like a good guy, not talk about being a manwhore but he's been with many others, some famous. If course the H is once again a virgin. This is getting on my nerves. The H has the power of suggestion, and uses it, a lot. She finally gets pissy about it, I would have freaked out sooner. A good read, too many personal buttons pushed. ...more

Aww sweet Thane...

I have been looking forward to this book and getting to Thane’s story. I adored him in the other books. This book felt like it got back on track after the last one and was a really great story. Loved the characters and seeing how each of the couples lives are playing out. This is such a wonderful series, I will be sad when I finish it.

Thane meets his mate by chance plus a mistake in identity. Sydney gets lost in London and is mistaken for a repoter and is brought to Than for an interview. Thane takes one look at her and knows she is his. Can he convince her that she is his? Can he keep her safe from an unknown threat? Come find out.
The Cauld Ane series is about a non-human race secretly living among the humans going about their lives in much the way those around them do not seeming different on the outside. They have long life, extra strength, and special gifts. Each spends their life searching for that special someone who is their soulmate.

This is only my second visit to the series after reading the book immediately before this one. I had plans to go back and catch up on the series, but that hasn't happened yet. I've mana

Each story of this series builds upon the book(s) before it. Ms. Piper's blend of spiciness adds a richness to the chemistry of her couples. Thane and Sydney were wonderful.
