Ophelia Brand’s life is in shambles. Married to an abusive man and forced to act like the perfect politician’s wife in public, her freedom has been completely stripped away. Alone and without purpose, Ophelia feels as if there isn’t much in this world to live for. Everything changes when an employee kidnaps her from a state dinner. Ophelia is thrust into a new world filled with people who claim to be an ancient race of Mages. They also claim that she is one of them.
While the country falls into the hands of a tyrannical dictator, Ophelia finds herself torn between the friendly Reece who wants nothing more than to protect her, and Spencer, the leader of the resistance who sees her as a tool to fight the war. Tensions run high as Reece and Spencer both try to help her master her powers and unravel the spells that restricted her from using them. As revelations of her past come to light, and the war is brought to her feet, Ophelia must quickly make a choice of who to trust.
* Binds is the first in a series of adult urban fantasy novels with sexy Mages, a sugar skull army, and an unfortunate set of Hello Kitty pjs.

I liked the idea that was the world setting, but alas the characters just couldn't ...
Let me start out by saying, I won this book in a booklikes giveaway. What a beautiful cover! Ophelia fell in love with and married Donovan. Then Donovan became abusive, controlling (you name it, he did it). She is kidnapped (or rescued depending on your view) by Reece. I thought Reece was a bit c...
This was different and interesting. I did enjoy it and am curious about the next in the series, although I had my fair share of issues.I liked the concept and it was told fairly well. The secondary characters were great. I loved, loved, loved Jinx. And the Sugar Skull Army was awesome.My issues were...
Ophelia is a trophy wife, married to Donovan who is as power hungry and as abusive as it gets. He is the kind of character that will find his place in history books, named as one of the monsters of humankind. His portrait would look really good (sorry for being cynical!) next to those who came to po...
