Blood Bound was a little short for my taste, but I wouldn’t mind reading more from Celia Jade. I did have a hard time connecting to the characters and therefore couldn’t relate to them. Still I recommend this book, especially and to vampire fans. It is a decent short and introduction to Celia Jade's work.
Blood Bound is about a dhampir named Stephanie who meets a vampire named Dex. Dex needs her help to save his brother from a deadly genetic disease. During this time Dex demands of her a nearly impossible task; come to terms with her damphir nature and tell her family the truth.
Stephanie Dubois has managed to keep her true nature a secret. Her innocent involvement in a bounty hunt mission brings a vampire crimes agent to her door. The last thing she needs is someone poking around in her business. Soon, she realizes that being charged with obstructing justice is the least of her worries. This rugged vampire seems determined to reveal the secret that could tear her family apart.
Dex Mason is relieved to have finally found Stephanie Dubois. She is the only person who might be able to save his brother’s life. Yet she vehemently denies her genetic makeup and the rare gene she carries. This is an unexpected obstacle. He has no choice but to use the only leverage he has.
