After being chained to a star to burn endlessly as punishment for stealing immortality from the gods, Jaykun has been unshackled to wage war alongside his brothers, in the name of a goddess. But his freedom comes with a price: Each night Jaykun must still suffer—his body burning from the inside out. One early morning, recovering from his torment, he encounters a beautiful stranger on the beach. Naked from her midnight-black hair down to her sandy toes, she approaches him with starry-eyed innocence and the unmistakable full body of a woman.
Soon Jaykun is swept up with the force of a comet, his desire for her hotter than any sun. His brothers fear he is blinded by her radiant beauty, that she has been sent by their enemies to seduce and destroy him. Jileana is indeed from another world—one Jaykun cannot begin to imagine. But will their passion burn brightly enough to light their way through the darkness that threatens to consume all in its path?
When they meet it's under the worse possible circumstances as not only has Jaykun gone through his nightly torment but he has just been attacked! Yet Jileana wastes no time in getting as close to him as the taciturn warrior will allow with inane questions and what's quite obviously designs upon his body. I did like the way she constantly bamboozled him with her mixture of innocence and passion but come on, Jileana clearly was no ordinary woman and her secrets should have set off Jaykun's internal alarms! Yes, that male is more than a little obsessed but frankly the story really only begins to open up when Jileana takes Jaykun to meet what could become his in laws! Now that's when Ms Frank really lets her imagination begin to flow!
This series has improved with each book and no longer feels as stiff and alien as it once did. I enjoy seeing these cursed brothers find love with the most unexpected females and Bound by Sin certainly raised that bar! Far more depth to the second half of the book as we get to see what really drives Jaykun and also see Jileana bravely stand up to those who would oppress her.
One more brother to redeem himself but as these passionate brothers have shown anything is possible.
I was gifted a copy in exchange for an honest review.
