Sasha Willis is determined to make a difference as the new regent to the Paladins of the Seattle area. Sasha has several agendas for this; her first and primary is to clean up the mess left by her predecessor, and earn back the Paladins’ trust. Sasha wants to prove to her father and the other regents that she’s capable of being in charge of these powerful warriors and their mission of protecting our world from the crazed “Others” who try to breach the barriers that separate us from them. This isn’t going to be easy, and she can sense that the Paladins are hiding something...Others!

Larem q’Jones had been an elite member of his world’s Blades. When circumstances brought him through the barrier he was not happy, but accepted the fact that he was here now in the light, and could not go back. If Larem did he would be executed as a traitor for aiding the hated Paladins. The Paladins were not what Larem had always been told they were. He had made good friends among them. Larem has developed a hidden trait of healing that has all but vanished amongst his kind due to his world’s fading light. When Devlin Bane, leader of the Seattle Paladins, asks Larem to keep an eye on the new beautiful regent, Sasha Willis, Larem reluctantly agrees. Larem owes the Paladins for giving him his new life, and the woman with her fiery red hair and disposition to match intrigues him.

There are still those who seek to destroy the Paladins and their shaky alliance with the few trusted Kalith whom they harbor. Sasha vows to learn all she can about these magnificent fighting men and to put right what has gone wrong in recent times. But her attraction to the secretive Larem is very much Bound by Darkness.

Alexis Morgan keeps the momentum accelerating in her Paladins of Darkness series with the latest Bound by Darkness. Kalith hero Larem q’Jones clearly does not want to be in this world, but has accepted his fate, and given his allegiance to his new friends. Larem has sizzling chemistry with the audacious Sasha, and the added sub-story of the rescue dog, Chance, just adds more meat onto this story’s already savory bone!
