Publisher's Summary

Tiger-shifter Lord Bane Dunsaney released Nick Fairfax from the deal that bound the young man to his service for a year. Then Bane fled, afraid that the beast inside of him would harm Nick if he stayed. He never thought to see Nick again.

Little did Bane know, Nick has chosen to stay at his estate, Moon Shadow, to await the return of the lord who has his heart.

But can lasting love survive when there are tiger-sized secrets between them?

Book two of our modern, M/M retelling of Beauty and the Beast.

Cursed: Bound is the second part of a three-book series. Part three is coming out in 2017.

Holy Tigershifter!

This retelling is so amazing and this installation will leave you with OMG ending.

Bane is back from a month long absence believing that when he returns that the man he's been dying without will not be there but surprise surprise he's not only there but he's been waiting for his return.

The angst and the love are so poignant and the sentence that sums it up is this one, True love cannot exist without trust. There are moments when you want to scream at Bane...just tell him for pity's sake. Trust him...he loves you and it's that lack of communication about a secret so profound that ultimately leads to the ending of the book.

Tomorrow is to long to wait for book 3 to come I cannot wait to see how this book resolves the proverbial elephant in the room.

Can Bane learn to trust in the man he loves to not only understand but to accept the dual nature of his curse? Can these two beautiful men find a way to come together despite all they've put each other through? I hope so and I can't wait to find out :-)

Good story but incomplete

Don't purchase to these as individual stories. The author took a passable story and broke it into several parts to sell separately. None of those parts stand well alone.

Terrific story

I loved Book 1 and this book was almost as good. I will be waiting w/ bated breath for the "rest of the story" and counting down until it's release. Cannot imagine how Bane is going to get himself out of this mess.

wasn't feeling it

I remember really liking book one. I bought this right when I finished that one but didn't start it right away. honestly nothing happened in this book and you can very well skip it and go on to the next. I didn't want to finish this point because nothing was happening and if it hadn't been an audiobook that I could have sped up I wouldn't have finished it at all.

Really like this series!

The only draw back was that in this book the characters were constantly referred to by their physical appearance. The Big Man, The Billionaire, The Indian Man, The Young Man, so forth and so on. It’s driving me crazy! LOL! In the first book they had names and were only referred to the above a few times. I’m listening to Book 2.5 now (Smoke) and it’s the same! It can only mean that book 3, Beloved, will likely be The Big Man, The Billionaire etc (sigh). LOL!

Eughhh - struggled to finish.

This book was a real slog. The soppy loved up scenes were so boring and dragged. Nothing really happens in this book, and it all seems to be saved up for the next one instead.

What’s with all the labelling of people? The billionaire, the younger man and the Indian man. Surely there’s more important features of those people that could have been used when the author didn’t want to use their names too much? I’m not normally that overly politically correct myself, but even I got offended that ‘the Indian man’ was his label, as if his nationality was all that was important about him. And there was more to ‘the billionaire’ than his money. It got so incredibly distracting in this book every time I heard it.

Really not a fan of this narrator and he’s so nasal too.

..I tried the final book and unfortunately things do not improve. Will be returning both. A shame because I enjoyed the first book.
