Shifters keep their friends close and their enemies closer in a shadowy world where the line between hunter and hunted thins, blurs, and finally shatters

Author's Note: Blood Bond is book three in the Underground Heat Trilogy. All three novels are full length shifter romances with happy-ever-after endings!

You can buy the books individually, or in the boxed set titled Underground Heat.

Head of the shifter underground's security force, Johannes has his hands full. When Max, the underground's leader, is almost killed by sniper fire, Johannes breaks a cardinal rule to save his friend and makes a discovery about himself that changes everything.

Daria's been a healer in one capacity or another for hundreds of years, but wholesale slaughter aimed at wiping out her kin is something new. Called to the governor's mansion after Max gets shot, she finds him wallowing in a river of his own blood. By rights he should be dead. She questions Johannes, but he remains stubbornly silent--after telling her an outright lie.

If Johannes wasn't so knockout gorgeous, and she wasn't so wiped out, Daria would've left after treating Max. Instead, Johannes talks her into staying, then orders her to work for the underground. As head of security, it's his right to commandeer personnel. Daria is torn. Johannes is the most compelling man she's ever met, but he's also arrogant. Compounding the problem, her cat thinks he's their mate. After he runs roughshod over her, she doesn't care about anything except getting as far away from him as she can, but escape isn't possible.

A series of lethal attacks throw Daria into Johannes's path--and keep her there. He's desperately attracted to her, but anything beyond sex with any woman isn't part of his life plan. His cat says she's their mate, but it doesn't alter Johannes's staunch refusal to consider anything that might turn into love. He has his reasons. They've served him well, and he sees no reason to change them now.

Blood Bond***** The end of the trilogy is like the homemade whip cream or meringue topping on a favorite dessert. I like Johannes, he is so dedicated and loyal to the protection and stability of the shifter community. He's strong, formidable, bold and is more important to his kind then any can know. I think he's lonely yet strong-willed and content. I like Daria too, she has some of the same characteristics so they are very well matched. Their story is full of action and danger as the war against them comes to a head in full force but the way they find each other & a love that both had already given up on is heartwarming.

Blood Bond, book 3 of Ann Gimpel's trilogy, Underground Heat, was everything I expected and so much more! It contained all the characters I've grown to love and added a few new ones in the mix. It was very intense, leaving me on the edge of my seat as the shifters continue to fight to regain their freedom and citizenship status ultimately fighting with their lives. Meanwhile things heat up fast for Johannes, head of Max's personal security, and Daria, a grossly overworked and underpaid shifter physician.

Blood Bond is the third and final book in the Underground Heat series. It can be read as a standalone with an HEA but I recommend that you read them in order written since the storyline continues through all three books. There is violence and hot and steamy sex so definitely 18+. I enjoyed reading this book and I think you will too.
