    Highly Recommend--Do not miss!

    I'm a super picky reader--I want imagination, sensuality AND sexiness, complex characters, and unpredictble plots that don't make me feel like I'm reading a twist on someone else's story. I stumbled across Joey W. Hill last year and fell in love. She is one of the few authors whose books I purchase without reading the synopsis or reviews. Her imagination and suspension of disbelief skills are AMAZING and fans of Lyssa and Jacob (like me!) won't be let down! This is one of two or three books I've purchased BEFORE the official release date, and I'm so glad I did because it is one of my new favorites. I also recommend that this be read after the rest of the series, because there are a lot of little moments between the characters that are extra special when considered in the greater context of the Vampire series. However, if you don't have the time or desire to start at the beginning, Joey does a great job of describing them so new Hill readers don't feel left behind. ENJOY!!

    Perfect

    Absolutely love this book. We go back to the original two of the Vampire Queen series, Jacob and Lady Lyssa. Since Lyssa has shown she has more fae blood and powers than before she is summoned to faerie. This coming right before they have been called to the vampire council regarding the care of their son, Kade. Their complex relationship and enduring love in addition to vampire and fae politics make these new challenges all the more interesting. We meet new characters to love and hate (sometimes simultaneously) and have the chance to see our favorites from previous books from the series. While there were certainly a couple of surprises for me and it didn't go exactly as I expected, I'm glad it didn't.....it was perfect.

    The Best One Yet in the series!

    It was nice to catch up with Lady Lyssa and Jacob again as well as some the other characters in the series. The 8th book in Ms Hills Vampire Queen Series once again is well worth the read. Lady Lyssas' not yet back to her vampire self but she is still summond by the Fey Queen to come to that world. Lady Lyssa gets to "explore" her father's world with Jacob by her side. Ms Hill takes storytelling to the next level - not only do we stay focused on the main characters but she also lets us in on what the other "support" characters in the series are up to. In addition the new characters she's added to the series we now want to know more about them too. Can't wait to see what she does for VQS #9! Keep up the GREAT WRITING Ms Hill!

    A MUST READ!!!

    Absolutely loved, Bound By the Vampire Queen! If you've read previous stories of Jacob and Lady Lyssa this is a must read, if you haven't, I would definitely recommend reading The Vampire Queens Servant and Mark of The Vampire Queen. This is not necessary, but if this book has piqued your interests I think you'll enjoy these as well.

    I won't give anything away, you must read this book for yourself, but if you enjoy Paranormal Erotica you'll love this book. With its BDSM element it's a little graphic for some, but if you can focus on the story it's absolutely amazing, you won't be sorry. This story will make you want to laugh, cry and cheer for this couple page after page.

    Lady Lyssa is over a century old and Jacob has served her twice in his previous lifetimes, this time he's here to stay no matter what she has to say about it. Lady Lyssa and Jacob are an incredible duo, always fighting to protect each other. Their brave love is a reminder that there are some people out there willing to sacrifice everything for family!

    Highly Recommend the Vampire Queen Series and This Book

    Joey W Hill is a wonderful writer of erotic and D/s fiction. Her characters are strong and compelling. Her plots are always fresh and well thought out. She has several series and non series books available that span contemporary characters and plots as well as paranormal and urban fiction. Each book is unique and beautifully written. If you are new to the Vampire Queen series, you will probably want to at least read Vampire Queen's Servant and Mark of the Vampire Queen before beginning this book since those two novels introduce Lyssa and Jacob and tell the story of their relationship and commitment to each other. It would also be helpful (though not critical) to read Beloved Vampire, Vampire Mistress and Vampire Trinity since the main characters in those books have important roles in this book as well. Having said all that, this book begins with Lyssa (who is half vampire and half fae)and Jacob (her mate and servant) being threatened on two sides. The Queen of the Unseelie Court wants Lyssa to come to her to prove how strong her fae powers are. Of course, Jacob will not be parted from her so he goes along and they are forced to complete three quests to determine whether they will be allowed the self determination of returning to the human/vampire world or staying in the fae world. A lot happens while they are in the fae world and the characters are wonderful. I am hoping we see more of that world in the future. The second threat is that the Vampire Council is considering taking Kane, Lyssa and Jacobs' son from them in a political maneuver, as well as trying to force them apart. The plot has wonderful and unexpected twists and turns and is as rich and beautifully written as one comes to expect from Joey's writing. The story is gripping (I started my first read at 7 AM and finished the book at 9 PM, literally could not put it down. I say my first read, because I know there will be many rereads in the near future). For those of you who know the Vampire Queen series, good news! Mason, Jessica, Daegan, Anwyn, Gideon, Lord Brian, Debra and the good and bad Council members all play important roles in the story. I am very hopeful that we seem more of the Council make up in future books and how Vampire society accepts (or rejects) the changes that seem to be coming. Such a wonderful book. I can't wait to see the next book in the series!

    I love being able to read a book and be transported to the world

    I love being able to read a book and be transported to the world where it unfolds, so you can actually experience what the main characters in it are living. I recommend it for the open minded adults that can understand and are willing to immerse themselves in a new world of possibilities and experiences

    This book could not be more full of fascinating paranormal content, and in depth character development. Such a wonderful way to escape the real world, if only for a few days. This is one you will want to read again, and again

    keeps you hanging on every word

    Intimacy, intensity, and all out sex appeal will keep you hanging on every word and action between Jacob and Lyssa. There is an instantaneous connection for the reader to these two characters, and it never wavers. I think it is amazing to read one book out of an entire series, and be able to give it a five cup rating, but that is just how good this book is. Ms. Hill rocks the vampire world, and her characters are every kind of sexy and smart a reader could hope for. Lototy Reviewer for Coffee Time Romance & More

    Good but not my favorite

    I wish the first 3/4 of the book hadn't been so slow-going. The last 1/4 was exciting and held my attention.

    An Absolutely Must Read

    I will read anything Joey Hill writes, even if she starts to do blurbs for the backs of cereal boxes. Even so, I started this book which deals with the Fae world with a little trepidation because books about other-worldly creatures are not usually my favorites. At the same time I had confidence she would engage my interest and ultimately amaze me. I'm so glad I was right. If you already love Lyssa and Jacob, you will continue to love them and will be most satisfied by the events in this book. If you are new to Joey Hill, I highly recommmend reading this book but would strongly suggest you read Mark of the Vampire Queen and The Vampire Queen's Servant first. (And if you love the first two, keep on going and read the whole series in order. You won't regret it!)

    Highly Recommend this book for lovers of vampire and fae lore.

    Utterly fantastic book by Ms. Hill. The third featureing Jacob and Lyssa. A new element was added to this book - The Fae world and explores that side of Lyssa hertiage. New characters added and some old favorites returned for guest appearances. Can be read as stand alone, but get the first 2 in Vampire Queen series for the complete story.

    Much More Than Just a Little Romance!

    This novel was a slow read for me, because there was so much going on and I didn¿t want to miss a single bit of it. There is a wonderful family reunion of Vampire Queen book characters. I even caught some nods to Ms Hill¿s other storylines with a doll and tea set found in Ice Queen/Mirror of My Soul and sexy-battle-skirt-wearing-angels from the Daughters of Arianne books. (I miss those guys.) There is the go-jussly, lavish centerpiece of Seelie and Unseelie faery courts celebrating Samhain (Halloween) with the stirring pageantry of lore folks on a hunt/haunt through the human world, as the veil thins between the two. The scene at the faery cemetery, where participants find closure with their departed, had me snuffling through eight pages. It was a very cathartic snuffle. All the activity of the fall festival culminates in The Ending Ritual, an event that evidence shows may have been a part of ancient Celtic culture and also appears on tablets in BC Sumer, as well.

    Beyond that, Ms Hill uses her deft pen to examine the changing nature of love in long term relationships, as well as, the faces love can wear: betrayal, vengeance, reassessment, growth, forgiveness, acceptance. The author looks at the essence of self, or more accurately the selves, through Lady Lyssa, a vampire queen, who has lived a thousand years. We follow Lady L. as she loses her self due events beyond her control, then heals enough to meet the kinds of challenges that ultimately lead her to reclaim and embrace all she is. I can honestly say, that even as a humble human, I found the vampire lady¿s journey empowering. And, of course, a most important story element is the warm sensuality Ms Hill wraps ¿round the entire novel. We are treated to everything from a baby kneading at his mother¿s breast, to a morsel of food shared erotically between lovers, to loving Ds, that turns delayed gratification into an art form worthy of an ancient Roman sculpture.

    Finally, Jacob, Lady Lyssa¿s servant, captured my heart with a couple of simple lines, ¿How do you want me, my lady? How can I give you pleasure?¿. As the winter solstice holiday preparations rip up to manic, I¿m making those lines my mantra. Reading BBtVQ is a bona fide, nurturing, stress buster. Better yet, combine it with a fragrant, steamy bath. Oh yeah! If Freud is still rolling around somewhere asking, ¿What to women want?¿ I strongly suggest somebody get him a copy of, Bound By the Vampire Queen, by Joey W. Hill and insist he read it!
