Bound by NIght by Larissa Ione

Bound by Night (MoonBound Clan Vampire, #1)
The first installment in a sexy new paranormal romance series by Larissa Ione, author of the bestselling Demonica series!

A WOMAN OUT FOR BLOOD
Nicole Martin was only eight years old when the vampire slaves rose up in rebellion and killed her family. Now she devotes her life to finding a vaccine against vampirism, hoping to wipe out her memories—along with every bloodsucker on the planet. But there’s one thing she cannot destroy: her searing, undeniable attraction for the one man she should hate and fear the most . . .

A VAMPIRE OUT FOR REVENGE
A member of the renegade vampire MoonBound Clan, Riker is haunted by demons of his own. When he recognizes Nicole and remembers how her family enslaved his loved ones, his heart burns for vengeance. But when he kidnaps Nicole and holds her in a secret lair, his mortal enemy becomes his soul obsession, his greatest temptation, and, perhaps, his only salvation—a hot-blooded lover who could heal him with her touch . . . or bury 

Review:
Bound by Night was an excellent read, definitely engaging and a wonderful start to what is obviously another fantastic new series by Larissa Ione. There isn't anything to dislike about this novel. The world building is excellent. Although dealing with the often written about vampires, the author tackles it in a totally unusual way. The addition of north american folklore and legends as an element to explain the existence of vampires is a nice touch. There is also science based reasons for vampirism, as well as social injustices, slavery and unethical experimental methods. Definitely a very different twist. The characters are fully fleshed out and very likable. Both Nicole and Riker's personal demons are handled in such a way that it doesn't appear overly dramatic. They simply flow with the plot. Secondary characters like Hunter, Myne, Katina, Grant and Lucy are fascinating as well. Ms. Ione excels in this, her characters are all memorable that you start wishing the next installment has already been printed. Obviously, this series will not be an exception. The pacing is just right with fast and bloody action scenes and witty and rapier sharp dialogues.  The eroticism associated with vampires and sex is definitely felt in each written word. Riker and Nicole's heated encounters must definitely be read with the AC at full blast. Overall, a truly entertaining read, looking forward to the next book.

EXCERPT:

“That was…interesting.” “I never thought I’d see those two mediums used together.” “I may have to stab my own eyes out to make sure I never see it again,” Brooke said and then shuddered. They had just left the art gallery, and she waited until they were at the corner before looking at Owen. “I…
