Intended Bondmates - Book coverNo one said guarding a faeling from bloodthirsty vampires would be easy. In fact, Runa trained all her life to protect her intended bondmate, Konner, until he could awaken his full magic.

She was looking forward to her time with the young fae until tragedy shattered her plans. For the last thirteen years, she’s been bound with Mikhail. Neither of them was happy with the arrangement, but she never thought he’d request to unbind from her early. When all hope of Runa fulfilling her rite and joining werewolf society is threatened, Konner comes through and agrees to become her bondmate.

But Konner hasn’t forgiven her for abandoning him. And Rowan, bound with Konner’s brother, is hostile toward the fellow werewolf who left him to protect two faelings alone. As Runa tries to make up for her past betrayals, Forbidden thoughts and urges imperil all of their futures.

Author's Note: 

My greatest fear as a child was vampires, no joke. Somewhere along the way, this fear transitioned to a fascination. I've read everything from classics like Dracula to folklore from different cultures to Anne Rice, JR Ward, and Stephanie Meyer (I liked it; Don't judge me). When I began writing, I promised myself I would eventually write a story with vampires. Unfortunately, my fascination with them was shared by many other writers, and the genre has become saturated. I was overjoyed when I finally found a new way to present the species. Well, a new scenario is probably more accurate as I used Dracula and folklore as a guide. I think I deserve bonus points for making these nightmares terrifying again. While I like the misunderstood "villain" approach, I felt they needed to go back to their monstrous roots. They were getting a little too cuddly.

Granted, the vampires of Intended Bondmates are not the main characters of the story, or even side characters really. However, they are the driving force behind the world I built, and the fear they invoke is enough to bring radical change to both fae and werewolf societies. Of course I couldn't resist adding a romantic element into the daily struggle of my characters because...Well, that's a long story, so let's just go with reasons for now.
