(This book was previously published with a different cover and the title “Blood Vengeance”.)
A vampire bound by chains.
For seven long years, Master Vampire Luukas Kreek has vowed to take revenge on the raven-haired witch that has taken his power—and his sanity. The witch with the face of an angel. Emaciated and weak, he desperately tries to hold on long enough to get his revenge. But with one taste of her blood, a single word bursts through his fragile psyche…MINE.
A witch bound by love.
Keira Moss has spent the last seven years trying to figure out a way to get herself out of this hellhole—and to save the strong-willed vampire she’s grown to admire—and love—while she’s at it. But she’s afraid not even a witch as powerful as she will be able to get out of this one. For she knows that the vampire who holds her heart will kill her the moment he is free. And she won’t stop him.
Tortured and starved, Luukas’s hunger for Keira wars with his lust for vengeance. His shattered mind must choose: to kill the witch or to love the angel—making her HIS, forever.

My Review …..
Luukas is half mad (well, people would say completely mad) daily starvation and torture for seven years would do that to anyone, but to a powerful vampire it took a lot. But with one foot balanced precariously on the edge of insanity, Luukas knows it won’t take much more to fall!!
Keira hopes this nightmare will one day end. Being taken from her sister by monsters was bad enough, watching as the monsters descended on her sisters was worse, but the nightmare truly started even she had to torture and torment a vampire on a daily basis. The things she was made to do to him will haunt her forever, and if she ever got a chance to free him she would, but in freeing the vampire she was signing her life away, because surely the vampire would want her head as payment for what she put him through….
This one reminded me of another author that I read.
Kept hostage and tortured on a daily basis, until the poor vampire doesn’t know what’s reality and what wasn’t. But he knows if he ever gets out, then the witch is dead! He holds her responsible, (even though it’s not her fault!)
Kiera knows she’s a witch, always known. Her sister on the other hand has no idea.
That was on her parents, they didn’t want her knowing they had to escape the coven, and that she was a witch (I was never sure why, if Kiera was a witch, then why couldn’t they teach Emma?!)
Emma was the only think Kiera cared about, so when Leeha (evil vampire) threatened to capture and kill her sister, Kiera had no choice but to comply with Leeha’s wishes.
I liked this one, I liked how Luukas wanted to kill the witch, but couldn’t (and he wasn’t sure why)
Watching how Kiera tries to save him, puts herself on the line for him time and time again, in fact she’s prepared to die so that he can have some peace!
Luukas didn’t think he’d ever get captured (even though he knew Leeha would set a trap) and he never thought he’d be hidden from his clan for such a long time (I don’t think he realises until later how long he was gone for)
Kiera I really liked, a strong and I dependent woman/witch.
And she thwarted Leeha at every turn (even added a few hidden surprises in the curses that Leeha wanted Kiera to cast over the rest of Luukas‘a clan)
Enough naughty moments to keep us entertained, and well thought out fight scenes.
Quick recap…. Leeha thinks her and Luukas should be mates and rule all the vampires. Well that’s not going to happen, vampires take human lovers because vampire blood can’t sustain them! But Leeha’s father “turned” (her and made her believe that they should be rulers of the Vampire world!!
So as Luukas fights to keep hold of his sanity and his witch, things are being plotted behind his back! Not his council, they are loyal to a fault. His brother has kept the coven going, no one knew their master was missing!
His guards/council have been tirelessly looking for him, and now they have him they aren’t sure how to help him, but as long as Kiera is with him they can help him recover.
Kiera isn’t going anywhere even if she wanted too! But she wants to know how her sister is, and is shocked when she finds out Luukas’s brother is now Emma’s mate!
You can read this book on its own. But as you read the story, you do become invested in the rest of the coven, you want to know if they will all find their mates?
So the only way to find out, is to read the rest of the books.
