Christine Feehan – Bound Together

#1 New York Times bestselling author Christine Feehan’s Sisters of the Heart series comes to a climactic end as a mysterious man from Blythe Daniels’ past re-enters her life.

On the shores of Sea Haven, six women touched by great loss have come together in a sisterhood strengthened by the elements–a bond each will need as new love and danger enter their lives…

For five years, Viktor Prakenskii has put his life on hold in order to take down the world’s most feared motorcycle club from the inside. But carrying out the insane violence and seeing the club’s exploitation of the innocent has brought his traumatic past roaring back. And there’s only one cure: to see the wife he left behind…

Blythe Daniels thought she’d never see Viktor again after he murdered her stepfather and left without a word. She rebuilt her life without him, becoming a personal trainer and physical therapist…becoming strong enough for others to lean on. But when Viktor comes back to Sea Haven, he’ll make Blythe question everything she thought she knew about good and evil–and the dark desires of the heart…

“She went to him because there was no other choice.”

The epic conclusion to the No.1 New York Times bestselling Sea Haven series as the eldest Prakenskii brother, Viktor, comes to the village of Sea Haven, and his arrival heralds a huge change – and imminent danger – for Blythe Daniels as well as the other residents of the community, including the Drake sisters.

The first fifty or more pages is Viktor and his crew taking out a cell of human traffickers. I don’t even think Blythe shows up for the first three or so chapters. That was unusual but it was okay, because we’ve seen Blythe a lot in the previous Sisters of the Heart/Prakenskii books. And it was important because Viktor had been a man of lore previously. He didn’t even show up until “Fire Bound” and that was briefly. Feehan introduces him very dramatically and he lives up to the hype. Actually I loved him. I can’t choose my favorite Prakenskii, to be honest, but he definitely stands out for me.

As far as the romance, it’s a lovers reunited angle, in which Viktor has to show that he loves Blythe and that they can have a good life together. That he is worthy of her trust. Blythe was always extremely tight-lipped about her past in the other books, to the degree we didn’t even known she was married until the fifth or sixth book in the series. The reveal on that makes sense when we find out how complicated her relationship with Viktor actually was.

Blythe has been the calm center of the Sisters of the Heart, and in this book, I realized how hard that must have been, considering her very tortured past. I always liked her, but my respect and admiration grew even wider after this book. She has a very motherly nature, and that drives her to accept Viktor’s club into her world, even with all their damage and the darkness of the life they have lived.
