Unbound by Lori Devoti

Series: Unbound Book 1

Genre: Paranormal Romance

Copyright: 2007

Pages: 288

Rating: 5


Risk Leidolf was a hellhound--a legendary, otherworldly creature who was both man and beast. For centuries, he'd been bound to do the bidding of a cruel witch queen. But after being ordered to destroy novice witch Kara Shane, the man within him rebelled. And the beast within him was held at bay--for now.

Fiercely drawn to each other, Risk and Kara soon formed a passionate alliance as they set out to find her missing sibling--and the key to his salvation. For the power unleashed by the twin witches could free him from the witch queen's bondage. But that freedom came at a steep price. For the fierce battle would put more than one soul at stake--and two hearts on the line!


Oh, my word... please pass me a hose to cool off. Risk is one sexy beast ;)!

Unbound was a tough one to put down... so I didn't. I devoured it in one sitting & wanted more. Devoti definitely knows how to bring the sizzle. HOT!

Devoti's romance is not the cavity inducing sugar infused rot that makes your stomach churn peppering the shelves of late. Devoti sparkles & shines as she unfolds the tender layers of what it is to be loved, feel loved & luxuriate in love's delicious sumptuousness. *Sigh*

Devoti's characters are intricate, three dimensional beings that leap from the page. The players are a delectable blend of rugged & vile ~ Devoti really can scribe an expansive array of characters w/o losing sight of the journey she wants them to travel.

Devoti's cast is simply vibrant. Risk Leidolf is a Hellhound ~ a shapeshifter who can change from man to menacing dog. At the tender age of eight, Risk was sold to Lusse, a malicious witch who has enslaved & forced Risk to do horrific things. Risk only knows suffering, bitterness & fury. Despite the torture thrust upon him, Risk has a kindness about him that truly radiates. Risk is absolutely breathless! Gotta love a hero w/a wounded soul. * Silly grin*

Risk & Kara = dynamite! Fourth of July has nothing on these two, spicy noodles!

Unbound kicks off the series w/ explosives... They definitely bring the sizzle!

Hurry & grab a copy of Unbound & than grab the rest of the Unbound series!

Haven't read a Lori Devoti book, but with these descriptions "Risk is one sexy beast", "Risk & Kara = dynamite," it sounds like I should.
