For over five hundred years, hellhound,
Risk Leidolf, has been collared and chained in service to
Lusse, a powerful, immortal and oftentimes cruel witch.
Unable to break the ropes that bind him to her, Risk has spent
his lifetime doing her dirty work. His current assignment is
to find and bring to her a certain witch so that she can in
turn take her power. When Risk comes into contact with said
witch, plans change because there is no way he is going to
turn over someone like Kara Stone to someone like Lusse,
especially when he finds out that Kara is a twin.
Kara Stone is looking for her twin sister
who disappeared days ago. Trying to get help at a bar she
knows her sister frequented, Kara runs into brick walls when
no one is willing to help her. Undaunted, she vows to

Oh what a tremendous read Unbound
was! The title alone was enough to make me want to
read it, and as I opened the pages, I settled in for a

written in such a way that I could feel the emotions pouring
out of him at the thought of his being unable to save her.
Lori Devoti has a new fan! Unbound
is now happily filed on my keeper shelf under “O” for
