Francisco, but somehow managed to leave her soul in New Orleans. When
she’s not creating and cultivating her characters, she enjoys dining
on spicy tuna rolls, sharing a bottle of red wine with friends and
watching the latest flick (especially scary films). From time to time
this radiant left-handed pirate will even challenge others to a
fencing match or two. But, watch out. This Gemini is determined to win!
Hans Christian Andersen:
I should admit from the very start that A.D. Trosper is one of my favorite indies, and I was more than thrilled to read her newest title. ‘Bound By Time’ is a beautiful, deep paranormal romance, with a very strong basis in horror. I was dragged into the story, finding myself devouring the book in every spare, waking moment. The details were realistic, and it seemed as though I were smack dab in the middle of the story instead of a mere bystander watching it go on. My skin crawled. My heart thumped. I gasped, laughed, and cried.
I have read the book twice. Each time, it took me only a few days to read the book in it’s entirety. Not because it’s short, and I wouldn’t call it light either, but because I literally could not pull myself away. I lost a lot of sleep over this book, but it was so worth it.
The characters… oh how I love the characters! What I love most about A.D. Trosper’s writing is her characters. They easily feel like friends I’ve known my whole life. I can SEE them clearly in my head as I read. Their personalities are unique, and develop naturally. I just can’t even find the words to portray how realistic these characters are.
I love Isobel, of course. She’s strong, unique, and a book worm (just like me!). But she’s not unbelievably strong. She’s realistic, too. She has panic attacks in moments of intense stress – something I can easily relate to – but she pushes through them to come out stronger each time. Then there’s Damien… oh, I’m in love with him. I am. He’s protective, romantic, hunky, and yet… he’s realistic too! The author didn’t paint an unrealistically flawless macho man. He, and Isobel, come complete with flaws that make them who they are. The supporting cast were right in the forefront of the story, as well, and I fell in love with all of them.
I could continue to ramble on about how much I loved this book…. and on… and on. But let’s get to the point. Would I recommend this book? YES! (I’m yelling this at you, by the way.) I recommend it to people who love horror, paranormal romance, or romance in general. I recommend it to anyone who enjoys a well written, realistically portrayed story which immediately captures your attention and keeps it until the very ending. I was left craving more, and I know you will be too. You won’t regret reading this book.
I got this book from the author, free of cost, in exchange of an honest review from my side.
Firstly I would like to thank Bebe Knight, for giving me this opportunity of reading and reviewing this book.
Well, this book is quite awesome and the concept is portrayed very well though the concept is not fresh and has been used several times before but I liked the various twists that the author added here and there making the read interesting and intriguing. I liked the writing style as well and felt it comfortable and it was enriched too.
The characterization is great and the characters are well developed and not sketchy. Veronica’s character is my favourite in this story, I liked her kick-ass attitude and her bravery, she is confident and swift in her killing skills. Mackenzie’s character was also well portrayed but Veronica’s charm seemed to overshadow him, at least for me.
The action scenes are breath-taking and are vividly described which helped me visualize the scenes while reading. There is suspense and mystery which kept me hooked in the story till the end and the passionate romance touched my heart. The struggle for achieving their love and fighting against your own people – this concept impressed me quite a lot and the emotions have been portrayed perfectly so that it touched the heart of the readers.
Over all a great read and I would recommend it to you all and hope that you guys will love it as well. Enjoy!!!

As usually happens with follow up books, I preferred the first installment in this series. It was still a really good book and it played the story out very well. It was well-written and engaging, but I couldn’t help but feel the ending was a bit hectic, and I would have liked it better if there was less of a cliff hanger and more of a wrap up. That’s just my personal preference, of course, and I do have to say that if nothing else the ending makes me desperately want to grab hold of the third (and unfortunately, last) book in this series! I simply have to know how everything pans out for the characters, and I must know what happens after… well, I can’t say after what, but those of you have read this story know! All in all, it was a very good read, and I can’t wait for the next one. I would highly recommend this book who enjoys a good paranormal romance or a cliff hanger ending!
