I received this book for review from the author.
Summary: She’s running from fate…
Shea Tedaldi is the only thing standing between her six-year-old brother and the men who killed their parents. Descendants of the ancient Etruscan magical race, Shea and her brother keep powerful secrets that make them the targets of the evil Malandante. They’ve been looking for a safe haven but the bad guys are gaining on them and Shea needs a hero, a guardian who won’t falter in the face of danger…
He’s looking for the key to break the spell…
Gabriel Borelli is a warrior born to protect the Etruscan witches living under a curse. He’s dedicated to breaking the spell and avenging the murder of his father by the Malandante. He won’t let anything—or anyone—get in his way. Not even the one woman who may hold the key to his quest…and his heart.
Thoughts: Shea and her brother Leo are descendants of the Etruscan magical race. Ever since their parents were killed, they have been almost constant danger. Gaberial is a warrior, it's his job to protect the Etruscan witches. But he is cursed and is forever trying to break it. Shea and Gaberial can find salvation in each other, for they share a common enemy.
Wonderful read! A story filled with magic, love and danger. Spell Bound is the first in a series called Darkly Enchanted. I enjoy this story, although I did feel The first few chapters were a bit slow. But by Chapter 5 things start to kick into gear. The pairing of Shea and Gabriel was delectable. Though neither of them make it easy. I love that Ms. Julian keeps expanding her Etruscan world. If you've read any of the three previous series you know what I mean. Any of the Etruscan books are a must read for Fantasy romance lovers.
Score: 4 Stars
