This is a great entry in a terrific police procedural romantic urban fantasy series

A serial killer is on the loose with the culprit's modus operendi being the beheading of vampires; not an easy task to achieve yet the psychopath seems to do it quite easily. Guardian Riley Jensen investigates the homicides when a second case surfaces. Someone is snuffing out human females with not the slightest trace of violence. The locals are in a feeding frenzy of fear.

Her personal life is even more out of control since her werewolf soulmate Kye Murphy has returned. She wants no part of the amoral mercenary, but the sexual pull is devastating. Even her millennium old suave lover Quinn the vampire may not be enough to keep Kye from her. However, investigating the case might prove the answer to eluding her desire for her soulmate.

Bi-species hybrid Riley continues to be pulled in two conflicting directions externally between the vampires and the werewolves, and internally her soul. She makes the BOUND TO SHADOWS superb; as she investigates the serial killing beheadings while being pulled between two lovers, her bad ass werewolf soulmate and her urbane vampire heart's mate. This is a great entry in a terrific police procedural romantic urban fantasy series (see Darkest Kiss).

In this book Riley's character was either having sex with different men(at one point one right after another)or lusting over another, it seems she had slept with other men in previous books. When she has this wonderfully understanding vampire in her life(Quinn), who she "loves" and don't deserve. No matter how Riley's emotions were being explained, I did not like that about this book...It's one thing to lust, to love, to bed different men but not put this way! The author made her a whore. My first and last book from her.

    Unique and Exciting

    This series is like nothing I have read before. This is not your typical boy/girl fall in love or in this case werewolf/vampire fall in love, deny their attraction, sucumb and live happily ever after. Oh no, this is so much more. Riley Jenson has an insatiable appetite for most things male and in this series it works. This series is so action packed you'll never find yourself speed reading to get to the good parts. And while there is nothing "traditional" about this paranormal love story you'll find yourself rooting for one character and hoping they'll fall in love just to change your mind in the next chapter. Sookie Stackhouse fans this is a must.

    I love Keri Arthur's Books!

    I love the Riley Jenson Guardian Novels. And I love the latest one "Bound to Shadows". Yes all of the books have a similar theme to it but it is the kind of book it is. I can't wait to the next one. Please tell me there is a next one.

    Can't wait for next one

    I loved this book I was sad that Kade had to die but I'm glad Kye is gone. I want Riley to be with Quinn. I was shocked with the end can't wait for the next one to come out. I hope that she gets to have the baby that she always wants
