Reviewed by Nannette



In a desperate attempt to save her brother Mark from going to prison for a crime she knows he didn’t commit, Kerry Sullivan kidnaps electronic security expert Rafael Dawson. Rafe is furious. After she badgered him repeatedly over the phone about her brother’s case, Kerry drugs and kidnaps him!  He can’t deny that she is sexy as hell though. Rafe wants Kerry bad, so he strikes a bargain with her. If she consents to forty-eight hours at his mercy, he’ll help her brother. Desperate, Kerry agrees to give her body to Rafe. She never intended to give him her heart, but you know what they say about the best laid plans..

Sinfully hot sex and an exciting and suspenseful plot make Bound and Determined  impossible to put down!  Ms. Black’s witty dialogue will keep you laughing while Rafe’s intense sex appeal will make you a willing captive to his charm. Even Rafe’s stubborn need to be chivalrous in lue of Kerry’s and his own desires, is endearing.  Kerry is like the girl next door. She’s sweet on the outside and a femme fatale on the inside. Having your sexual awakening at the hands of Rafael Dawson would ruin a woman for any other man. The only thing keeping the disappointment at bay about finishing Bound and Determined, is knowing that Mark’s story is next!
