Genres: Adult, Romance, Suspense
Synopsis: Our love is on his terms. He contacts me only through notes − unpredictable and untraceable. When we meet, he can touch me, but I’m not allowed to touch him. When we make love, it’s only after I have been bound and blindfolded. It’s the only time I truly feel alive. Which is why I play along with it. For now.
Caden Thaine is the most sinfully beautiful man I have ever seen. But more than that, his touch sets me on fire. And dear God, do I ache for him. I don’t know where he lives or even what he does. But this doesn’t scare me. My only fear is that one day his messages will stop. I know he’s hiding something. But that’s okay. I am hiding things, too. Like my real name and... who I really am. But the deeper I fall for him, the stronger my curiosity grows.
I could never have imagined just how much our lives are bound. And that pulling at his tangled web of secrets would cause my own dark past to come back to try and reclaim me. Will we survive? Will our love?
Adult romantic suspense. +18 years.
Interview with Author:
A: haha, get in line ;) But seriously, Caden isn’t really based on anyone I know (damn).
A: Actually, I loved writing Mick, Kitten’s kickboxing coach. He’s gruff and swears a lot but he’s soft on the inside. I had fun coming up with creative insults for him.
A: I knew that this would be the kind of book that people would either love or hate. I didn’t expect that people would be as passionate as they are about which side of the fence they stand on! But I think this is a good thing. I was told by my old writing mentor, “the worst thing for your reader to feel is apathy.” So yes, hate the book or love it, I’m glad it makes you feel something.
A: Oh God. Let’s get one thing straight: I didn’t let my dad read Bound. He bought the book and started reading it even after I told him not to. The conversation on how I found out went something like this:
Dad: So I bought your new book, Bound by Lies.
Dad: I started reading it.
Hanna: OMG NO YOU ARE NOT ALLOWED TO READ THAT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Dad: Wow... It's a little hot.
Hanna: *jumps out of window*
I refused to continue that conversation with him. I really really don’t need to know what he thinks about all this… I can always deny I wrote it, right?
A: I did consider a pen name but in the end I decided not to. I think that part of my purpose as a writer is to express myself as openly and as truthfully as possible. The reason behind why I was considering a pen name is because of how I thought people would judge me based on the kind of book Bound by Lies is. I joke about not wanting my family or friends to read the novel but really, it doesn’t bother me.
A: I had an ex-boyfriend who I used as a basis for developing Jacob’s character; the possessiveness, the jealousy, the sex and even some of the things that Jacob would say to Kitten were exact things that he would say to me. Thankfully I left before my situation escalated into physical violence. But there are a lot of women who don’t and unfortunately I’ve known some. I think part of the reason is that we don’t recognize the signs. That’s why I’m not going to hide my experience from the world. Silence only helps to allow these kinds of abusive relationships to continue. Something I share might help someone else recognize a bad situation before it does escalate.
A: Well, I can’t talk about Kitten because she hasn’t revealed what she looks like (for her own safety, you know)… but Jason Momoa (Khal Drogo from TV series Game of Thrones) is what I imagine Caden to look like. *wipes drool off chin*
