Bound to Shadows by Keri Arthur

Bound to Shadows:
Part vampire, part werewolf, Riley Jenson knows what can happen when vamps don’t play well with others. But she’s never seen anything like this: a series of brutal murders surrounding the latest hot spot for vampire-human hookups—and the victims aren’t just killed, they’re beheaded. Now Riley is launching into action, toying with a seductive—and highly suspicious—club owner, and finding herself in the middle of another mystery: women being killed one by one, without a trace of violence.

For Riley, solving multiple cases—in a world going mad with human and vampire passions—would have been tough enough. Instead she has two jealous lovers on her hands: Kye Murphy, the amber-eyed werewolf who makes Riley’s wolf blood howl—and Quinn, the cool, elegant vamp who has over a thousand years’ experience at fulfilling women’s desires. While she’s busy juggling these two sexy beasts, Riley’s detective work takes a stunningly violent turn. Finding a murderer is now a matter of life and death. Especially since the killer has long since found her . . .

Keri Arthur’s Riley Jensen series is full of intrigue, mystery and even hotter sex scenes. Being part werewolf, it’s Riley’s nature to be sexual and this book is no exception. Although if it were up to her, one of the men she’s lusting after would leave her alone FOREVER. Fate has played a cruel trick on Riley when it bound her to Kye Murphy as her wolf soul mate. Kye is ruthless and will stop at nothing to have Riley, heart and soul—even if her heart already belongs to Quinn, her vampire lover and mate to the other side of her soul. This book is non-stop action with nary a dull moment, although I felt Quinn was rather absent throughout the story and could have fought a little harder for their relationship when Kye threatened it. Quinn is finally becoming more understanding and accepting of Riley’s wolf nature and the needs that entails, and it makes me love him all the more. When the suspects in Riley’s case turn out to be closer to home, and Kye threatens everyone she loves, it’s up to Riley to stop them before someone is killed—even if that means that she herself must kill to protect her loved ones.

  1. Quite a good story line, not such a happy one though! I was sad to see the last book Moon Sworn be the end of the series but really looking forward to reading more in the new series and also waiting on the next book in her Myth and Magic series "Mercy Burns" releasing way in April of next year!
