Heart of Darkness ( kindle PDF ) BY Lauren Dane
But he is powerful all the same And oh so sexyI have tohe is POWERFUL ALL THE SAME AND OH all the same And oh sexyI have to that I recently read a post by Lauren Dane and saw that she pictures Emma Stone as Meriel and Michael Fassbender as Dominic I can totally see him as the #Sleek Mysterious Sexy Nightclub OwnerOK Back To Business The Story #mysterious sexy nightclub ownerOK back to business The story suspenseful and full of hot naughtiness Basically there s a group of mages that have been kidnapping witches and draining them of their powers thus killing them Kendra from Revelation was one of the witches this group tried to kidnap of course she got away Meriel as an integral part of Clan Owen is assigned to investigate thisAfter meeting Dominic and realizing immediately he is her mate sparks fly and clothes do as well Their connection is instant hot like bees to the honey He wants to take things slow and she is willing to give him that space But neither can deny their attraction and their love for ach otherWith some surprises up ahead and some twists of fate for where their future together will take them they manage to face the obstacles together I think that was my favorite part of the story Dominic is there for her he doesn t do any asshole type things to push her away He doesn t fight how he feels And he is there to protect herAnother part I loved was the connection between the Clan witches Meriel s best friend and sort of boss Nell She s a trip and I love them together As well as Dominic and his buddy Simon cue massive drooling for the hot alpha wereI ve mentioned that this is basically a spin off of a spin off series but don t be alarmed You can jump in this book and Nerds enjoy it 100% without reading the previous books The magick topics in them was not the main plot and this is the first timeverything was Zack (Areion Fury MC explained in detail Also along with the hotness and sexiness you canxpect snarky comments great personalities and just the type of girl you d want to hang out with Ms Dane is great at that Now if only we could get Simon s book already Simon will be book 2 He s a were and he will be taken for a ride by Meriel s half sister also a witch I can t wait I had high Shadow on the Crown (The Emma of Normandy Trilogy, expectations going into this book A because I have heard great things about Lauren Dane and B some of my other bookish friends gave it generally positive reviews While I didn t actively dislike it unfortunately this wasn t a winner for me The worldbuilding is solid and pretty interesting but I failed to connect with the characters and I didn t feel invested in their romanceMeriel is a powerful witch and the heir apparent to her family s clan The only thing that is holding her back from reaching her potential is the fact that she has not found her bondmate and ascended with him Finding her magical other half happens pretty uickly though when she goes to investigate a loner witch who is using her family s magical font without permissionDominic was never part of a clan and has no desire to change that He just wants to run his club and be left alone But when he and Meriel cross paths there is no denying the instant attraction They know they are bond mates right away but they choose to take some time before they ascend together so Dominic can get used to the idea In the meantime they get thrust into an investigation involving rogue witches and mages who are draining the magic out of others So they work together to solve that mystery as they fall deeper for one anotherI read in another review that the reader liked how mature these characters were about their bond and yes they were mature but for me they were also boring In theory they both have good stuff going for them Dominic has a mysterious past and he s dominant and sexy while still respectful And Meriel is powerful and confident without being conceited or overbearing But it all fell flat for me I didn t care if they were being mature because I just didn t care about them There were sexy times to be sure but they didn t titillate me because I felt no tension It all just was They re bondmates no real conflict no angst just a very straightforward path to HEAThe mage threat meanwhile was weak and the personal tie to one of the characters felt convenient and contrivedI just wasn t feeling this one But many othersnjoyed it so it may be better for youRating. L night after ContamiNation explosive night is However Meriel has unwittingly invited someonelse into her world Dominic’s mother a dangerous and poisonously influential magic addict whose lust for death and power corrupts all she touches Now her shadow is closing in on Meriel her Clan and the man Meriel loves and it’s casting them all into the inescapable heart of darkne. .

My Blog Closer To Time Of Publicationblog closer to time of publication note though this book works as a stand alone but characters from some of Dane s previous books are mentioned in passing as they are all set in the same world While not strictly necessary I recommend you read What Happens In VegasAfter Dark and the de La Vega Cat books if you have the time andor money Failure to do so won t detract from Heart of Darkness but knowledge of these characters will add an xtra layer of satisfaction Lauren Dane is FreakingfantasticI loved this book from the start to finish and when it nded i wanted Im #Going To Write About #to write about much I loved this Book Heart of DarknessAre you going to remain prickly so that i have no other choice but seduce
#a good mood back into youLoved the main charactersMeriel and Dominic they were perfect The sexual tension between these #good mood back into youLoved the main charactersMeriel and Dominic they were perfect The sexual tension between these was on fireit was so so funny Meriel s bff Nell she is awesome I loved the relationship between them I VE got something Nell walked into M 35 stars In search of bookswith witches I found this story It was an interesting take on magic with some likable characters Meriel was a strong and capable heroine who felt like a real person Dominic made for an intriguing hero what with his dark past I loved how relentless he was in pursuit of Meriel though he was very protective and possessive but he wasn t a jerk The two worked well together and I really liked how the usual dynamics found in paranormal romance were changed here Meriel was the one who knew about the bond between her and Dominic and the worldof clan witches Dominic was the one who had to be taught and given space before he could accept it The plot was interesting and made for a good book as Meriel and her clan had to try to figure out how magesbasically fake witches who stole power because they were addicted to magic like a drug were killing and harming witches in other clans There was an interesting tie to Dominic s past that I kind of saw coming but I liked it anyway The thing that really brought this story down for me were Losing My Virginity and Other Dumb Ideas editing mistakes and word choices I found uite a few words that were missing or misspelled and a couplb times the author used words that pulled me out of the story particularly in the love scenes Still this was a good book and I m glad I started reading Lauren Dane here I recommend it if you like paranormal romance with a uniue kind of witch 35 starsI was pleasantly surprised to find that this book straddles the line between paranormal romance and urban fantasy It had a strong plot and romance However neither of those were particularlyngaging I liked the romance It had an odd feel of being insta love and slow burn at the same time because their strong feelings for The Magic Rolling Pin each other developed instantly but th 25How to write a paranormal romance and keep both main characters smart and together throughout the book It was nicely done here I loved these two There wasn t a single moment in the story where one or the other was acting stupid I admit the way it started it seemedverything would revolve around them getting together and him accepting her It wasn t They got around Indecent... Exposure (Indecent, every issue they had really fast Their relationship wasn t the focus of the storyHumans in this world know about weres They are out of the woods so to speak Most of them don t know about the Other witches clan or outclan vampires fae or any other race which is one of the problems the characters deal with in this book Someone is killing and draining witches Since witches can be addicted they turn and become abominations cut off from the power The turned have to replenish what is lost and the only way is to take the power from others What I didn txpect nor like is the way this story Not Without a Fight ended They won in thend but it was hardly challenging for them It was Oh this is our Garden Bouquets and Beyond enemy Let s get him Okay Done I understand the author wanted to do but this onended abruptly It was like someone cut the part of the story When I read romance novels whether they re paranormal or contemporary or historical or WHATEVER I live for the tension between characters That build up that fight against the attraction the The Unseen Wonder explosiveness of finally giving in The romance itself is the main plot arcBut that wasn t the case with Heart of Darkness and for me it overshadowed the rest of the storyDon t get me wrong there was plenty of sexin it up and gettin down and dirty But the falling forach other part happened uickly with The Management Bible ease and it left the remaining pages devoted to what happens with Dominic s mom Which was interesting And cool But not what I was looking for when I picked up the book so in some ways my ownxpectations defeated meThat said I think the Bound by Magick world is intriguing and I like Clan Owen. From national bestselling author Lauren Dane comes a white hot new series of a dangerous family legacy and sensual paranormal passions played to the death on the knife dge of darknessMeriel Owen next in line to control the largest organization of witches in the country is asked to investigate the owner of a notorious club reportedly siphoning magic from the font. The witches and the general paranormal structure #I ve heard second book is smokin and I intend to continue with the seriesThe thing #ve heard the second book is and I intend to continue with the seriesThe thing tension between characters is that we begin to learn about who they are through their struggles against themselves their world and the people around them I find that this was most lacking for me that though I liked Meriel and Dominic they spent time telling ach other how important they were to the other rather than letting me get to know them Because Dominic struggled his character is a bit defined But still not uite what I was Sleepless (Bird of Stone, expecting or looking forHowever I m intrigued I want to know I want to see how this worldxpands and unfolds because I ve read just nough to be
intrigued but not nough to have it allbut not nough to have it all out And I like that Heart of Darkness by Lauren DaneBound by Magick book 1I absolutely loved this bookLauren Dane has created a story with a lot of the lements I love A great story plot romance suspense action and oh so sexy Dane puts us in a world where Vampires and Were have come out of the closet so to speak but witches still remain a secret There are different types of witches and the most powerful of them are the council witches Invisible (The Curse of Avalon especially after they find and bond with their bond mate There are different clans across the country and Clan Owen in Seattle is the focus of our storyMeriel Owen is sexy smart funny independent protective ambitious confident and is a kick ass powerful witch who is next in line to run Clan Owen Meriel is an attorney and after finding out that the new club in town Heart of Darkness has been stealing power from Clan Owen s font to strengthen his wards at the club she heads to the club to handle the situation with the owner As she comes face to face with the club owner Dominic Bright the sparks start to fly literally Dominic is a smart businessman a sharp dresser a brawler protective possessive and damn sexy There are some surprises in store as far as Dominic is concerned some good some bad Meriel and Dominic were so much fun to read the chemistry was great between them and they balancedach other out so nicely Whatever situations arise they seem to give Yummy Supper each other a different perspective on things instead of seeing things one sided One of the things I liked most about Dominic was that he has no issues learning new things about his magick and learning from women It was fun seeing a woman being the dominant power tooAs the story unfolds there are stuck witches causing all sorts of problems the stuck witches would be theuivalent of a rogue vampire Witches across the country are turning up dead or missing These stuck witches have teamed up with mages and some humans and are siphoning magick from witches for the addiction of the stuck witches Now they have shown up in Seattle and the Owen Clan must take them out before one of their own gets hurt or killedLet me give props to the great cast of secondary characters as well Simon Nell and Edwina and Tim they were a great compliment to the storyI njoyed this book so much in fact it was my first ver Lauren Dane book and definitely won t be my last Lauren Dane has gained a new fan and I can t wait to read the next book in this series WOW First Reads Winner Whoop Sorry just Deep Listening excited is all Thank you for picking me lol Ok so this is a first in a new series and it was really good I love books about witches and this was right up my alley Dominic was so wonderfully alpha male and so sweet I loved that he didn t caved right away and join Meriel s coven That made it feel real Loved Meriel she was feisty smart and never was afraid to show Dominic how much she loved himven when he was pushing her away She may have been a little to understanding lol Is anyone really like that This was about a coven of witches But also about witches being hurt abducted drained of the magic to mage s who were stuck addicted like drug addicts My only real issue with this book was that for me there wasn t nough action I would have loved ass kicking Since Meriel was so tough I loved how at first I wasn t to sure of Meriel s mother She seemed kinds mean and stuck up But by the nd you see her a little differently Loved friendships in here as well Meriel and Nell they were so funny together Simon YUM and Dominic were so great I cant wait for Simon s book Yummy Wolfy Simon Man I bet his book is good He always was straightening out Dominic when he was being thickheaded This review was posted at Under The CoversI was so Evolution, Me Other Freaks of Nature excited to get to this book Ahhh I ve been a fan of Lauren Dane s work for a while and I remember being introduced to the magical world that this book follows back with the Cascadia Wolves and De La Vega Cats series Of course in those books the Clans were the bad. Of the Clan It’s a direct violation of the Clan Code of Conduct but one look at Dominic Bright and Meriel’s willing to make a deal One taste of the sexually feral outlaw witch and she’sager to go further he’s her bond mate a legal conduit into the world of Clan witches and their magicPlaying by the rules isn’t Dominic’s style but bonding with Merie.
