Author: Kendra Leigh

Relentlessly sexy. Emotionally deep. Tangled, twisted, intricately woven love story with romance and suspense.
The bonds of their love saw them through the ravaging storm to the promise of peace and the chance to breathe …
Angel once believed her soul belonged to the Devil. Now she willingly gives every part of her—mind, body and soul—to the man whose love mends her a little more each day.
Ethan knows Hell is no place for an angel, especially not his Angel. He would sacrifice his soul every day of his life in order to save hers. Fuelled by an almost obsessive desire, their need for each other ignites a passion that most couples could find destructive, but instead the flames of their possessive vigilance only seem to feed the fire of their insatiable hunger. The slaying of Ethan’s demons has made their fortress of love stronger than ever.
But Angel continues to paper over the cracks of her troubled past, running from the demons that chase her and the nightmares that plague her. When a twist of fate forces her to confront them, she finally begins to accept that her repressed memories need to be explored in order to attain the peace she craves.
But in her search for Nirvana, Angel discovers far more than buried memories. What happens when the worst nightmare you’ve ever encountered is the one you wake up in? When the past comes face to face with the present to reveal a web of diseased secrets and lies?
And the only road you can take leads to one destination … Hell.
Kendra Leigh's "Bound for Nirvana" is the final book in the Bound trilogy. It is amazing! I know what I'm getting all my girlfriends for Christmas - The Bound Trilogy! This third book may just be the best #3 I've ever read. Without spoiling anything - I'll just say that I've always loved their nicknames for each other and the nicknames came true! Just absolutely stunning! Right up there with Sylvia Day and Meredith Wild, and way better than "Fifty Shades of Grey," of course! I don't give out many straight 5-star ratings, so you know this series is legit!

Obeying instantly, I unfurled my legs and moved across the room toward him. He gazed at me, his expression still inscrutable, and then slowly he moved around to my back. “Close your eyes.”
Again, I complied without hesitation. I felt something soft brush gently against my eyelids, a smooth, silky fabric blocking out all remaining light as it tightened against my skin. He was blindfolding me. My heart struck my chest wall with a sudden instinctive foretaste of what was to come. The blindfold, his insistence that I wear my red shoes, his near-naked form in the doorway, suggested only one thing. But his talk of my needing to learn a lesson, his tone, and impenetrable mood hinted at something different. Nonetheless, my skin prickled with eager expectation as I waited for my next instruction in the darkness behind my eyelids.
Suddenly, his voice startled me. He was closer than I’d imagined, his breath warm against my ear, his smell … exquisite. “How does that make you feel?” Misreading the question, I nodded to let him know I was okay.
“No, Angel. Tell me how it makes you feel.” His voice was slightly harsher than before, more demanding. I thought about what he wanted me to say, trying to tune in to the sensations I was feeling, but struggling.
“Restricted,” I said finally.
“Anything else?” He’d shifted, his lips grazing the lobe of my other ear now.
“Think beyond the blindfold.”
My mind searched for the answer, and then after a beat I whispered, “Aware. I feel more aware.”
“What is it about me you’re more aware of?”
“How close you are … Your scent.”
“My scent? And what does it smell like?”
Hesitating, I scrambled for words to try and describe it, eventually arriving at, “You.”
I felt him smile briefly against my cheek and then he was gone.
Kendra Leigh fell in love with books and the wonderful world of reading from a very young age. She was at her happiest when Enid Blyton whisked her away up into the magical lands at the top of the Faraway Tree with Moon-face and the rest of the gang. Books have been her constant source of escapism ever since. Currently residing in the UK, Kendra devotes her life to her devilishly handsome partner, scandalously beautiful daughter and cute as hell Shih-Tzu. As well as writing and reading, Kendra loves great TV, especially Dexter, Homeland and Breaking Bad.

Ethan Wilde. Billionaire. Business Man. Passionate. Powerful. Persistent.
One of New York’s most eligible bachelors.
Angel Lawson. Photographer. Gallery Owner. Burdened. Beautiful. Broken.
A woman bound by the ropes of her sins and forgotten past, fearful of her future.
A chance encounter…
Consumed by guilt and tormented by the bonds of a tragic past, Angel Lawson’s life has been a solitary journey, condemned to live without love. In order to preserve her damaged soul from further rejection, sex is as close to a man as she ever plans to get. She was already hell-bound for her sins. One more wasn’t going to hurt ... ... or so she thought.
When a passionate encounter throws her into the world of Ethan Wilde, Angel is helpless to resist the irrefutable desire and depth of raw emotion he ignites in her. Ethan is as intense as he is sinfully sexy. Irretrievably captivated by Angel, he seems just as intent on understanding her naked soul as he is desperate to possess every inch of her naked body. Angel craves his touch like a drug and yearns for the love he promises, but surrendering to the feelings he’s unearthed will mean exposing her fears and releasing the demons buried for a lifetime. Exposing her heart will leave it at risk of being broken. Will Angel choose to leave her life of solitude behind, or is the choice no longer hers?
Ethan Wilde is used to getting what he wants … and what he wants is Angel.
Just in case you missed it, here's my review for #1:
Kendra Leigh’s “Bound for Hell” is the first racy book in the Bound trilogy. It’s sort of along the lines of Meredith Wild’s Hacker series or Sylvia Day’s Crossfire series. Ethan, the leading man, is very sexalicious (much less of an ass than some of the other broken billionaires out there). It is chock full of amazing sex scenes. This definitely goes on the read one-handed list! I can’t wait to read the rest of Angel and Ethan’s story.

Hell was hot, but the flames of deliverance might be the ones to burn …
For the first time in living memory, Angel Lawson feels cherished. Ethan Wilde has taught her that love is possible for all, even the sinners among us. The bonds of his love free her from the shackles of her guilt. Inch by inch, he’s slid under her skin, folding himself around her soul like a soothing blanket. His love nourishes her starving heart, and his passion fuels the scorching flames of her deepest desires, driving her to the blissful edge of sweet insanity. Brick by brick, she tears down the protective wall she’s built around her heart, and the ice inside begins to thaw. To Ethan, Angel is the sole reason he exists, the blood in his veins, the drug to his addiction. He vows to mend her, to help her confront her demons and come to terms with a buried past that continues to haunt her. But what lies beneath the surface of Ethan’s past? Pasts left hidden to rot become dirty secrets. Secrets that can tear even the strongest love apart.
And secrets have a habit of revealing themselves when least expected ...
Here's my review of #2:
Kendra Leigh's "Bound for Salvation" is the second book in the Bound trilogy. I can't believe it, but #2 is even better than #1! #2 is smokin' hot, hot, hot! Kendra Leigh is apparently a read it one-handed kinda gal! I love it. Lots of cool plot twists and I don't want to spoil anything, but let's just say you can not put this down! I can not wait to read #3...I want to know how it all turns out!
