My Review:

An author who is climbing my list of favorites, Lola James has crafted yet another series that demands I read the next installment.  Here we have twins, Morgan and Megan who head off to Italy after Morgan wins a design contest sponsored by an international fashion design house.

Once in Italy, the action in this story moves quickly, from a love interest for both, to a series of odd events that have little to no logical explanation.  As the story unfolds, the Fate of the two is revealed, with several twists and turns, a few dead ends, and the reader is often left to discover the truths as the characters do, as Megan is prepared to accept her truths.

A mix that involves prophecy, fate, vampires and witches, this story starts slowly as the lives of the twins are established and detailed, giving needed information that will inform reactions and actions in what happens next.  With a light and breezy writing style, the author manages to convey emotions of the characters in an easily related to way, and her male characters are always uber sexy and hot.
While answering some of the myriad of questions that both readers and characters have in this book, the cliffhanger set just before the first of what I expect to be many face-off points was perfectly set.  I must read the next book, if only to see what Megan will do next.

I received an eBook copy from author for purpose of honest review with Full Moon Bites. I was not compensated for this review, and all conclusions are my own responsibility. 

About the Author:   Lola James has been reading romance novels since her teens, and fell in love with the paranormal after discovering Anne Rice’s Vampire Chronicles. Her loveLola Bio pic (m).jpg of the dark worlds of vampires and witches, as well as her fascination with Greek mythology led her to create the Spellbound Series, an ongoing Paranormal Romance combining all of the above into tales of suspense with a little bit of humor in an Urban Fantasy setting.

A long time lover of reading and writing with a passion for a great story, James became discouraged by the complicated and arbitrary publishing process, James had initially set down her laptop and her hopes of being a writer. However, with the purchase of her first e-reader, James became re-energized by the new possibilities for an undiscovered author to reach the masses. Dusting off her keyboard she finally finished Bound to Remember, the first book of the Spellbound Series and self-published it. Energized and ambitious, James is now hard at work on both the Spellbound Series as well as the Fate Series, a paranormal romance about dreams and what happens if they come true.

Living in Southern California with her two beautiful children, James finds time to write in between her full-time job as a mother as well as her other full-time job as an HR manager, as well as her academic schedule as she studies for her Master’s degree which she hopes to complete in 2013. With the success of Bound to Remember, James hopes to continue to reach an audience that will allow her to leave her HR job and focus on her writing as a full time career.
