Spell Bound

Darkly Enchanted, #1

In Spell Bound, Shea Tedaldi has been on the run with her little brother for the past year hiding from Dario Paganelli and his men. She has to keep her brother from falling into his hands at all costs so she turns to Gabriel, a Grigorio, for protection and finds that he has his own reasons for hating Dario.

The romance between Shea and Gabriel started slowly but I enjoyed that - it was different, and more realistic, from many romance novels where the characters fall in love at first sight. I loved Gabriel, who has a tough exterior but shows his softer side, especially in interactions with his mother. I also liked the side story with Quinn and Serina. I would love a book to see how their story ends. I enjoyed Stephanie Julian's world and would recommend this book.
