By Kendra Leigh
Genre: Erotic Romance, suspense

One of New York’s most eligible bachelors.
Angel Lawson. Photographer. Gallery Owner.
Burdened. Beautiful. Broken.


A woman bound by the ropes of her sins and forgotten past, fearful of her future
A chance encounter…
Consumed by guilt and tormented by the bonds of a tragic past, Angel Lawson’s life has been a solitary journey, condemned to live without love. In order to preserve her damaged soul from further rejection, sex is as close to a man as she ever plans to get.  She was already hell-bound for her sins. One more wasn’t going to hurt …

… or so she thought.

When a passionate encounter throws her into the world of Ethan Wilde, Angel is helpless to resist the irrefutable desire and depth of raw emotion he ignites in her.

Ethan is as intense as he is sinfully sexy. Irretrievably captivated by Angel, he seems just as intent on understanding her naked soul as he is desperate to possess every inch of her naked body.
Angel craves his touch like a drug and yearns for the love he promises, but surrendering to the feelings he’s unearthed will mean exposing her fears and releasing the demons buried for a lifetime.

 Exposing her heart will leave it at risk of being broken.

Will Angel choose to leave her life of solitude behind, or is the choice no longer hers?

Ethan Wilde is used to getting what he wants … and what he wants is Angel.

Bound For Hell – Excerpt
When we reached the apartment, I ran straight for the shower, leaving Ethan in the kitchen to start on the pancakes. I needed time to compose myself, cleanse my body and mind of the conversation which had seemed to sully the morning. Leave it behind, forget it. It was the first time I’d ever shared my shit with anyone, and it would teach me to leave it where it belonged. In my poisonous past.
     When I finished, I dressed quickly in jeans and a top, and padded barefoot toward the kitchen, squeezing droplets of water from my hair with a towel.
     Ethan had his back to me, unaware of my approach, and was slamming about in a rage, anger radiating from every pore of his body. As I came within a few feet of him, he seemed to lose it all together, and raising a bowl in the air, smashed it down violently into the sink.
“E, what are you doing? What’s happened?” I gasped, stunned by the vehemence of his demeanor.
My presence startled him and he swung around to face me, his eyes dark, nostrils flared with seething rage. Seeming to war with himself, he opened his mouth to speak, but the words failed, as if they’d already begun to evaporate before he could form them. Instead, he just stared at me, his eyes dark and intense with emotion boring so deeply into mine that they seemed to reach inside my very soul.
Suddenly he moved, striding swiftly toward me and without a word, flung his arms around me, squeezing me so tight it stole the breath from my lungs.
“What is it?” I asked, fear gripping my heart with the frightening possibilities raging through my mind.
As if the physical contact with me offered sustenance, he relaxed his grip, his face angling to look down at me through glistening eyes. A profound sadness seemed to have engulfed him, a helpless, angry veil shrouding his usually poised mien. Then, as if to dispel the emotion that even impeded his speech, he shook his head and closed his eyes. As he did, a solitary, angry tear escaped from the corner of his eye and spilled on to his cheek.
“E, please tell me. What’s wrong?” I pleaded.
When his voice finally emerged it was hoarse, barely above a whisper. “You.”
Me? I was causing him this apparent agony?

“Why? What have I done?”

 My Review
In the trope of the billionaire romance, Kendra Leigh writes a book that is sure to stand up above the rest.
This book has a little something for everyone, love, suspense, mystery, steamy sex, tortured characters, it truly has it all.
In the first installment of this trilogy we meet Angel and Ethan. Angel is treated like trash by her father. He is such a despicable human being. She is determined to not let her past define her and forge her own path. Then she meets Ethan Wilde. A chance encounter changes her whole world and she finds in Ethan a protector, a lover, and a man who holds many secrets.
I loved their chemistry. From the beginning you know they have something special. It’s like a modern day fairy tale.  I wasn’t a huge fan of Ethan’s at first, I have to admit. He came off a little TOO dominate at times. But once I got to understand his character, I fell for him.
This book is very well written and as I’ve stated above has a little bit of everything. We are scratching the surface for this couple and in a lot of ways, I’m scared to see what we find out. These two don’t have it easy.
A brilliant first book by Kendra Leigh, I can’t wait to see how this story unfolds.  5 Cinderella inspired kisses
Bound for Salvation

Hell was hot, but the flames of deliverance might be the ones
to burn …

For the first time in living memory, Angel Lawson feels cherished.
Ethan Wilde has taught her that love is possible for all, even the sinners among us. The bonds of his love free her from the shackles of her guilt. Inch by inch, he’s slid under her skin, folding himself around her soul like a soothing blanket. His love nourishes her starving heart, and his passion fuels the scorching flames of her deepest desires, driving her to the blissful edge of sweet insanity.

Brick by brick, she tears down the protective wall she’s built around her heart, and the ice inside begins to thaw.

To Ethan, Angel is the sole reason he exists, the blood in his veins, the drug to his addiction. He vows to mend her, to help her confront her demons and come to terms with a buried past that continues to haunt her.

But what lies beneath the surface of Ethan’s past?

Pasts left hidden to rot become dirty secrets. Secrets that can tear even the strongest love apart.

And secrets have a habit of revealing themselves when least expected…

 My Review
This is the book where Angel really starts to come in to her own. She’s learning to love and to let Ethan in, but at the same time, maintaining her own sense of self. The way she stands up to him is something that is all her and will have you smiling. We get to meet Ethan’s family and they are simply charming. You can’t help but adore them.
This is the book where everything changes. We learn Ethan has a few chinks in his armor and is more damaged than we could have ever thought. Some of it took me by surprise because it goes against the grain of how we see him, but it makes sense. Every bit of it. It might not at first, but it will.  For me, this is the book that took this series to a whole new level. It brought even more intrigue to the story and the twists and turns will keep you riveted. Angel and Ethan will be tested like they’ve never been tested before.  I read this one in one day because I simply could not put it down. The story is amazing. Like the first I give this one 5 kisses, and I’m on the edge waiting for the conclusion of this captivating story.

Bound for Nirvana
The bonds of their love saw them through the ravaging storm to the promise of peace and the chance to breathe …Angel once believed her soul belonged to the Devil. Now she willingly gives every part of her—mind, body and soul—to the man whose love mends her a little more each day.

Ethan knows Hell is no place for an angel, especially not his Angel. He would sacrifice his soul every day of his life in order to save hers.

Fuelled by an almost obsessive desire, their need for each other ignites a passion that most couples could find destructive, but instead the flames of their possessive vigilance only seem to feed the fire of their insatiable hunger. The slaying of Ethan’s demons has made their fortress of love stronger than ever.

But Angel continues to paper over the cracks of her troubled past, running from the demons that chase her and the nightmares that plague her. When a twist of fate forces her to confront them, she finally begins to accept that her repressed memories need to be explored in order to attain the peace she craves.But in her search for Nirvana, Angel discovers far more than buried memories.

What happens when the worst nightmare you’ve ever encountered is the one you wake up in?

When the past comes face to face with the present to reveal a web of diseased secrets and lies?

And the only road you can take leads to one destination

My Review

Let me start by saying that this book, by far, was my favorite in the trilogy.  The build up from the last two books explodes in this finale.

The story starts right where Bound For Salvation left off. So, yes, you need to read the first two books in the series or you will be completely lost. Angel and Ethan are trying to navigate their relationship after everything that has happened thus far. It certainly isn’t easy, then again, nothing worth it ever really is. If you were wondering if your questions get answered, the answer to that is yes, they do. Then you are presented with a whole new set of questions that will leave your head spinning. Just as you think you know how the story ends, you are thrown for a loop and given whiplash.

Both of the characters truly come in to their own in this book and Angel, by far, surpassed every expectation I ever had of her. The way she handles Ethan is just perfect, and honestly at times, quite comical in how she puts him in his place. Ethan is the faithful protector of his angel. He really is her Prince Charming. Kendra did a masterful job at showing their connection and you could feel it coming through the pages. If ever two characters deserved to be together, it is certainly these two. The ending had me in tears. When you read it, you will understand why.

It is so sad to see Ethan and Angel’s story end. I fell in love with them in the first book and by the third I became quite invested in their story. Bound For Nirvana gets 5 charming kisses from this humble blogger and I cannot wait to see what Kendra has in store for us next
