Shea will do whatever it takes to protect her little brother including seek help from a man she’s never met. Shea doesn’t know just how important she is to the Etruscan community but she’s about to find out.
Gabriel Borelli is a warrior sworn to protect the Etruscan race. When a woman comes to him with a six year old and a far-fetched story he is skeptical but there is something about the woman that draws him in.
Gabriel and Shea begin a harrowing journey to decipher the curse and escape the evil that lurks close.
Spell Bound is an outstanding edge of your seat novel. Spell Bound is rich with a unique and intriguing history. Stephanie Julian has created a thrilling world in Spell Bound! I thoroughly enjoyed Spell Bound. Shea is such an endearing character. She is strong, stubborn and I just love her internal struggle. Gabriel is a sexy warrior carved in stone. He isn’t cool with showing his emotions and I just love that Shea brings about emotions that make him flustered. There is blistering chemistry between Shea and Gabriel! I am definitely a fan of little Leo! He’s not to be underestimated he packs a punch in the power department. I cannot wait to read the next book in the Darkly Enchanted series! Spell Bound is a sublime start to a thrilling series!
