Publisher: Ink & Magick

Genre: Romance, Fae, Magic, Paranormal, Vampires, Werewolves, Shifters,


Blurb:


A supernatural bond. A heartrending betrayal. Can a werewolf guardian resist forbidden urges before she loses everything?


Werewolf Runa was raised with one purpose: to protect her chosen faeling from bloodthirsty vampires. But when tragedy shattered her plans, she was forced to protect a different fae, Mikhail, who makes her every day a living hell.

Konner was gutted by Runa’s betrayal. Despite needing a werewolf’s protection before his fae magic awakens, he refuses to accept any other bondmate, even if it could cost him a painful and terrifying death.

When Mikhail throws her away, she’s desperate. If she can’t complete her rite, she will be banished from everything she has ever known. Her only chance is if Konner accepts her bond.

But returning to her intended bondmate becomes much more complicated when forbidden thoughts and urges arise within her. Giving in would cost Konner his magic, Runa her place in the pack, or worse: both their lives.

My Review:

Intended Bondmates is not the first book by D. Lieber that I have read and it won’t be the last. Each book just seems to get better and better. If I had to choose which one was my favorite I don’t think I could as I loved each and everyone in a different way.

The one reason I loved Intended Bondmates so much is the fact that it has more than one paranormal creature. It has werewolves, vampires, and fae. Intended Bondmates tells the story of two wonderfully created characters, Runa and Konner. In their world, the world of Intended Fates werewolves is bonded with the fae. Werewolves like Runa are bonded with faeling to protect them from bloodthirsty vampires until their magic is awakened.

Runa’s story is a sad one. Runa and Konner have had a thing for each other for many years but when her time came to bond with a faeling she bonded to another because she felt that she owned Mikhail and his family debt for taking her in when she needed someone to care for her.

After being bonded with Mikhail for many years he has finally decided to unbind with her early. Runa and Mikhail never got along but she never expected this. Runa was afraid after their unbinding as she had no idea what she was going to do.

But luckily Konner agrees to bond with her. Sparks start to fly once again between Runa and Konner. Things could turn bad for Runa and Konner at this stage as bondmates can not have a relationship with each other. Having a relationship would cost Konner his magic, Runa her place in the pack, or worse: both their lives.

Intended Bondmates grabbed me from the first page. Once I picked it up there was no way I could lay it down again until I had read that last page. The descriptions were so vividly written I could see each and every scene as it happened, playing out in my head. I sorely love the world that was created for Intended Fates and can’t wait for more of it. The twists just kept coming page after page.

I highly recommend Intended Bondmates to all werewolves, vampires, fae, and magic fans out there in the paranormal world! Grab your copy of Intended Bondmates today and step into this magical world! 


Author Bio:

D. Lieber has a wanderlust that would make a butterfly envious. When she isn’t planning her next physical adventure, she’s recklessly jumping from one fictional world to another. Her love of reading led her to earn a Bachelor’s in English from Wright State University.

Beyond her skeptic and slightly pessimistic mind, Lieber wants to believe. She has been many places—from Canada to England, France to Italy, Germany to Russia—believing that a better world comes from putting a face on “other.” She is a romantic idealist at heart, always fighting to keep her feet on the ground and her head in the clouds.

Lieber lives in Wisconsin with her husband (John) and cats (Yin and Nox).
