Review: Bound in Sin by Cynthia Eden

Bound in SinBound in Sin

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't want Drake to know what she'd become, and she didn't want to face the fury of his pack. But a girl can only run for so long until the past catches up with her.
Some sins mark your soul.
When Paige learns that Drake is being targeted for death, she knows that she can't hide in the shadows any longer. She has to return to him, and she will do anything--anything--in order to make sure that he keeps living. The vampires might have destroyed her chance to live and love Drake, but they won't take him. Not over her undead body. She'll slay them all...and maybe, just maybe...she'll even have the chance to sin--one more time--with the werewolf who'd marked her as his mate.
Some sins are worth dying for...

My Thoughts:
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 half to herself determined to protect Drake even if it means the loss of her own life. Refusing to let Paige walk out of his life again, Drake offers his and the packs protection despite the fact that werewolves and vampires are mortal enemies. But betrayers in his circle and a twisted vampire threaten the second chance at love that Drake hopes to find with Paige. Will they be able to overcome past misunderstandings and learn to trust again or will the vampire responsible for turning Paige see his evil plans be brought to fruition?

Bound in Sin is a fun novella to sink your teeth into for a quick bite between full length novels. Drake is a kick-ass, sexy alpha and Paige a brave, determined heroine; both intriguing characters that Cynthia Eden provides a smooth dialogue for. The couple has a past history so when they’re quick to heat up the pages it is believable and smokin’ hot. (If you like Cynthia Eden’s other works and found them sizzling, then expect twice that with these paranormal erotic romance novellas.) The plot itself is action packed and set in a simple but captivating world that works perfectly for this size novella and despite the paranormal aspects of the story the situations are relatable. My only complaint about the Bound in Sin would be that the story very closely resembles the second novella in this series, Bound in Darkness, and seemed slightly repetitive.

When it comes to Cynthia’s books though, I don’t even bother to read the blurbs anymore before picking them up. I just dig right in knowing that I will fall in love with the story and characters by the first page.

Sexual Content: Recommended for adult readers who enjoy those graphically naughty sex scenes with paranormal elements. Vampire + Werewolf = Bone melting w/a bite


  1. I have not read any of this author's books, but just on your review alone, they sound great. The forbidden love and sacrificing for love just never gets old for me.

    Thanks for the review!

  2. I have literally a stack of Cynthia Eden books and I have only read two - Deadly Lies & Deadly Heat. None of her paranormal things. I need to get working on it.

    Thanks for the review!
