Published by Dreamspinner Press Genres: MM, Paranormal
Havenbridge is a picturesque, lovely town in Massachusetts. The human population is unaware of the existence of the Gate within their town, the power base of all magic. It is protected by the three most gifted families from each sect, the Witches, the Wizards, and the Warlocks. Each family balances the other and the magic they guard.
Mason Blackmoor is the tough guy at Havenbridge High School. Everyone does their best to avoid the teen and his friends. His rep is fearsome though honestly he’s never actually hurt anyone. What they don’t realize is that Mason is a warlock. He lives at Blackmoor Manor with two older brothers and his father who each control powerful magic. Mason unfortunately has yet to discover his own gift. With so much power in the Manor it was heartbreaking to lose Mason’s mother to cancer six months ago.
No one in memory has stood up to Mason until the new transfer student Drake Carpenter arrives in town. They can’t seem to be in the same room together without trash talking each other. But at the same time they cannot stand to spend time apart.
As Mason and Drake continue to argue one minute and secretly lust the next a horrifying discovery is made. Someone is viciously murdering people they know. The Gate is in danger. Everything happening is wrapped up in Mason and the teen from Texas. In the end will it be a choice between protecting the Gate or protecting their love? Through all the secrets and misunderstandings Mason and Drake must stand together or all is lost.
Every high school has a ‘bad boy’. At Havenbridge it is irresistible Mason Blackmoor, the bad boy warlock. Feel yourself drawn into the drama and watch the magical mysteries unfold in Spell Bound. Drake Carpenter’s arrival seems to be the catalyst that sets everything in motion. Both teens appear to be strong and tough yet hide fragile hearts. Their teen relationship is well written, sexual attraction deftly handled. Amazing emotional highs and lows keep the reader engaged in this first book of The Warlock Brothers of Havenbridge. A most definite page turner, Spell Bound is spell binding. I Joyfully recommend Spell Bound. This is edge of the seat entertaining.
