Bound by Blood by P.A. Lupton

Bound by Blood [The Garner Witch #1]
By P.A. Lupton

From Goodreads:
FBI agent and psychic, Brianna Reece, descends from an ancient and powerful bloodline of witches, only she doesn’t know it. But now that legacy has come back to bite her—literally. In the shadows of night in Denver Colorado, a serial killer is hunting women, and FBI agent Brianna Reece is hunting the killer. Unlike any case she’s worked before, Brianna can’t ignore the prickling at the back of her neck when she glimpses the resemblance she shares with the victims. The investigation begins to touch even closer to home when it is revealed that all of the victims were also psychic.

Complicating matters further, Brianna is captivated by the FBI’s prime suspect Nathan Donovan. Though she senses he is hiding something from her, the attraction she feels for him is compelling, and unlike anything she’s ever experienced. Through a chance twist of fate, Nathan learns of Brianna’s ancestry and is forced to divulge secrets to Brianna that will change her life forever. When she learns that the killer is an evil vampire, and he’s now set his sights on her, Nathan alone holds the key to awakening her dormant powers. Now he must race to teach her how to control her emergent gifts before she becomes the next victim.

Alexia’s Review:
I freaking love this book!! The author, Penny-Ann Lupton got me hooked on the first page till the very end. I couldn’t put it down – I was even sneakily reading at work when I had a chance (don’t blame me if I get fired, not my fault)! You know it’s a great read when you start getting anxious when you realize there are only a few pages left – I started reading slower in hopes that I could read longer *sighs*.

The characters are fabulous. Brianna (love that name) is a powerful woman with a hunger for life. The way she handles herself in dangerous situations is absolutely amazing. I enjoyed how Brianna and Todd Morrison became such good friends.

Mr Nathan Donovan… *fans myself* … oh my… That man is a hotness monster of note!! When I think of Nathan I can’t even put words into sentences – seriously! I’m super glad that Nathan and Brianna got together and that they have so much chemistry (I’ll be honest – I’ll say I’m glad but really I’m actually jealous).

Penny-Ann Lupton is definitely an author I’ll be following from now on – no questions asked! I enjoyed her writing style – this book had super hot (melt your bones) romance, humour and cool action scenes. This book is a definite MUST read to all that love paranormal romance. I can’t wait for the next installment of The Garner Witch series!!

Delicious – make mine a double
