Lord Moregon is no longer a Zinah.
Since his Mistress married and became queen, he has tried to
ignore the part of him that requires submission to a woman
but it is becoming harder and harder to deny that part of
himself. It is time that Moregon found himself a wife – but
she can’t be just any woman. She needs to be a woman strong
enough to give Moregon what his heart and mind crave.
Aketa hides herself and her scars
behind a veil. When she is helped by a kind man in the
market place, she has no idea that she has just caught the
attention of the Minister of Agriculture – the same minister
who is looking for a bride. Aketa’s parents and family are
harsh to her and she is used to being mute. When she is
told to join the maidens gathered together to wait on
Moregon, she is stunned to find herself looking into the
eyes of the man who helped her in the village.
Bound by Lila Dubois is
the third Zinahs book and Moregon’s story. Moregon was
raised in the temple and as such grew up craving the
dominance of a woman. He knows that in order to be happy,
he has to find the one woman who can give him what he needs
sexually and he in turn will be her loyal champion.
I never bought Aketa’s ability to be
what Moregon wanted. I was more inclined to see her be
dominated instead of she being the dominant one. Instead of
her being ‘trained’ to be submissive to know how Moregon
felt, I would have loved for her to have been trained
holding a whip, etc. Most of the book is spent with the
girls chosen competing for Moregon’s hand in marriage by
finishing a series of tasks. Rooting for Aketa every step of
the way, I was glad to see how strong she was on the
Bound is an enjoyable read – it is sexy and
passionate but the sex scenes are more graphic during
Aketa’s training. I would have loved for Moregon and Aketa
to interact more with each other. That would have made
Bound just a bit more believable. I do have to
confess to having tears at the end.
