Middle brother Thad Blackmoor is the warlock his family leans on for responsible behavior and arcane knowledge since the loss of his mother.  Between his warlock family, the Proctor witches and the Stonewall wizards they are charged with protecting the Gate, the place where all magic resides.

 

The Sabbat is near so it’s about time to go home.  There’s no question in Thad’s mind that his dad and brothers are waiting for him to get them organized for the ceremony.  He’d planned to leave school in plenty of time, but a very hot night with a newcomer messed up his schedule and now he’s late.

 

Minutes from home, Thad encounters a banshee on a murderous rage and a gorgeous fire fairy in trouble.  Using his magical skills Thad handles the situation and saves Prince Aiden Teine, who thanks the warlock before going through the veil to Otherworld.

 

Apparently fate has something powerful in store for Thad.  The warlock he slept with at school, Ben Crane is in his home.  Banshees interrupt their sacred ceremony and Aiden makes another appearance.   Unknown deadly forces are gathering and at the center of it all – Thad.

 

Return for another heart pounding Warlock Brothers of Havenbridge story in Blood Tied.  Rigid, sensible Thad is called upon to save the day this time.  Bone chilling suspense compels the reader to finish Blood Tied in one sitting.  A skillful blend of riveting drama, potent passion, and edgy intensity, Blood Tied is addictive.  One warning however, Blood Tied can be read as a standalone twisty romance, but an important subplot is ruined if you haven’t read this series in order.  Can’t wait for eldest brother Pierce’s book…

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.
