Review @LeislLeighton - Moon Bound by Leisl Leighton (Pack Bound #2)

Moon Bound
Pack Bound #2
by Leisl Leighton

Goodreads blurb:  Only her love can heal his broken soul...

Five hundred years ago, facing extinction, a group of powerful witches united to create a pact with the Were to save witch-kind. The pact expelled an ancient evil, known only as the Darkness, that was blocking the Were from their wolves. With the Darkness destroyed, the Packs and their Covens grew strong as they thrived beside each other in their brand-new world.

But the Darkness was not destroyed.
Wiccan Healer-Witch Bronwyn Kincaid wants a quiet life. Her new powers have other ideas. Her increased healing magic and empathy mean she can’t ignore the plight of River Collins, a wolf brought up thinking the animal inside him is an evil he must forever suppress. If Bronwyn can’t control her powers and help River accept his wolf, the evil Darkness that hunts the Were will use them to destroy those they love.

About the Author:  I am a tall red head with an overly large imagination who can talk the hind leg off a donkey, so it came as no surprise to my family that I completely fell in love with Anne of Green Gables when my Nanna gave it to me for my tenth birthday. I too was a dreamer, who at times was overly dramatic and lived my life vicariously through the worlds written by others and in my own dreams.

I read voraciously as a child and still do, everything from fantasy (Raymond E. Feist, Katherine Kerr, Jani Wurts), paranormal (Nalini Singh and Sherrilyn Kenyon), sci-fi (Anne McAffrey, Douglas Adams), YA (Hunger Games, Vampire Academy, Fallen, Twilight, Harry Potter), romantic historical (Anne Gracie, Courtney Milan, Mary Balogh, Julia Quinn, MM Kaye, Johanna Lindsey and LaVyrle Spencer) and romantic suspense (you can’t go past Nora Roberts), not to mention the classics (Austen, Bronte, Louisa May Alcott, LM Montgomery and of course, Shakespeare) as well as many others – the list could go on (I did say voracious!) As if this wasn’t enough, I did a double major in English Literature and Drama/Theatre Studies – two majors with more reading than pretty much any other. My friends thought I was nuts. I just thought it was normal.

My imagination and overly dramatic side led me toward drama and music. I come from a family of singers and musicians, and I got this gene in spades. If I’m not talking, I’m singing. I turned to the stage for a while, acting, singing and dancing (the latter not so well) as well as script writing, stage managing and musical directing. I loved every minute of it. But being a stolid Capricorn at heart, and liking to be in charge, I started up my own Theatre Restaurant with a couple of partners where I could indulge my creative side and maintain some certainty. After closing down the theatre restaurant for personal reasons (having run it successfully for six years) and starting a family, I internalised my creativity and started writing the stories I’d always dreamed.

Now I get to live a part of every day in the fantasy worlds my brain creates at night when I’m asleep, which is a joy I love sharing with others. I love it when my characters (vampires, werewolves, shifters, witches, warlocks, angels, fairies, elves, timetravellers, gods and goddesses, inter-dimensional beings and hunters, rock stars, music producers, sisters, brothers, mothers, fathers and friends) take me on a journey with them and allow me into their passions, desires, their hopes and dreams, not to mention their hot and sizzling romances. I love a happy ever after.

In my normal life, I raise my kids with my lovely hubby, have two dogs, Buffy and Skye, and spend time with my loving and supportive family and all my understanding friends – who still think I’m a little nuts. I sometimes sing in a choir or do the occasional gig, tinkle on the piano once in a blue moon and work at a YMCA in customer service and admin as well as swim teaching. I love Sci-Fi chanel, Dr Who, Grimm, Vampire Diaries, Teen Wolf, Orphan Black, am a huge Buffy and Angel fan, and watch Bones and all the Marvel Movies with my sons. People often ask me when I get the time to write and I say to them, if you love something, you find a way to do it. I love writing… enough said!

Most of all, I hope that readers enjoy my novels as much as I enjoyed writing them.

My Pack Bound Series is out now.

Dangerous Echoes – book 1 of the Echo Springs Series – is out later this year (more to come soon on this!)

My Thoughts - 4 out of 5 Unicorns - I really liked it!!!

***I choose what I read and review based on what intrigues me!!  Yes, I got a review copy of this book, but no one tells me what to think, feel, or write about any book!  I did buy this book.

This is the 2nd book in the series, and it is for adults only due to the violence and steamy content.  I think you really should read the books in order to understand the ins and outs of this world and the history.

This is River’s and Bron’s story!  I’m glad he prevailed against the Darkness.  I am really found of both River and Bron, and they both fit together.  I love how artistic he is with his gardens and making them stars for whoever he makes them for.  Bron always gives her all to those in her care.  She doubts herself, and this causes some trouble until she gets some help.  I really enjoyed this story, and can’t wait to read the next story to see what happens next!

I recommend this unique Were-world to any paranormal fan who love shifters and magic mixed with mate love!  I wonder who’s story is next!!

Interested in reading???
