Waking up after a brutal werewolf attack, telepath Tasha Grant finds herself a prisoner of The Facility, an organization carrying out dubious research into the paranormal. She dreams of freedom and going home, but after enduring eight years of physical and emotional abuse, she believes her dream might never happen.
Her life changes significantly with the arrival of Jack, a vampire, and the latest unwilling guest of The Facility. Despite the fact vampires and werewolves are natural enemies, blinding passion flares between them—yet, he refuses to let her inside his mind.
Is Tasha anything more to Jack than…food?
Together they escape The Facility and with the help of Sebastian, head of the local Lykae pack, the horrible secrets behind Tasha’s attack are revealed.
But as the past unravels, will Tasha’s chances of going home become remoter than ever?
Nina Croft has crafted a well-written story about a relationship between a vampire and a werewolf that starts as a friendship and grows into so much more.
Natasha was attacked by a werewolf when she was only thirteen years old and has lived at ‘the Facility’ for the past eight years. Living like a lab rat, each night the guards come and try to force her to turn into a werewolf. Since she is also telepathic they give her truth serum to see if she knows how to turn. For eight long years she has not turned, even during a full moon.
Jack a vampire also held at the Facility is Tasha’s only friend. Jack with a lithe body, pale skin, silky black hair, and emerald green eyes, is the most beautiful thing Tasha has ever seen. Each night the guard Johnson throws Tasha into Jack’s cell so he can feed on her. Each night he feeds on her blood. Distraught over her inability to change, Tasha asks Jack what to do. Jack refuses to tell Tasha how to turn, fearful that the men will force the truth out of her with the truth serum.
One night Jack, along with some assistance from his friends on the outside, escapes and takes Tasha with them. They bring her to Sebastian who is the head of the Lykae, the local werewolf pack. He explains that for her to turn, she must have sex first. Sebastian offers, but it is Jack that Tasha wants. But vampires and werewolves are sworn enemies. Tasha also wants answers about how she was attacked, and why she was kept at the facility. There is evidence that her father had something to do with her attack.
If she is to get the answers she wants, she’ll have to face her father. A man she spent eight years missing. Could he have really been the one behind her attack? If it is true, she can never go home. Her only choice is to turn and run with the pack. But can she live with the pack? And what about Jack, whom she longs to be with? Could a werewolf ever be with a vampire?
Nina Croft has written a beautiful, poignant love story based on friendship and longing to belong. Bound to Night earns four Tea Cups and a heat rating of two.
