SPELLBOUND By Sylvia Day Synopsis
From #1 New York Times bestselling author Sylvia Day comes a story of the ultimate seduction. . . .
Max Westin. Sex incarnate. She could smell it, feel it with his proximity. Everything about him was a little rough, a little gritty. He was a primitive creature. Just like her.
He held her hand a little too long, his gaze, under thick lashes, clearly stating his intention to have her. To tame her. . . .
Her name, just one word, but spoken with such possession she could almost feel the collar around her neck.
“It’s in your nature,” he murmured. “The desire to be taken.”
In this game of cat and mouse, everything is an illusion, but the passion is as real as it gets. . . .

Firstly, let me start by saying that Spellbound was my very first Paranormal Romance, ever. And what an expected little gem it turned out to be.
Spellbound is a fast paced novel that is so beautifully and so intensely weaved together. The novel explores the relentless, unwavering love that ensues between very different individuals surrounded in a world of magic. The intense connection that Max and Victoria – a Warlock and a Familiar- share is almost palpable as we follow them both on a tumultuous journey that leads them to discovering the unexpected nature of their relationship.
Victoria has lost a man who she believes was the one true love of her existence. She is a Familiar who is deemed out of control with the potential to turn feral, as she is no longer bound to a Warlock. But Victoria is decisive that she will never allow herself to love or be bound again after suffering such a great loss. And this strong dominating woman does not have a submissive bone in her body, to allow herself to be bound to another. When the darkly handsome and purely sexual, Max Westin is ordered by the High Council to visit Victoria in an attempt to tame her before the extreme action of vanquishing her is carried out, nothing can prepare Victoria for the decadent, and incredibly dominant Hunter she is faced with. Instantly these two know that they share an undeniable connection and sexual chemistry, one they have never before felt. But can Max tame Victoria or will he allow her to be collared to another Warlock, when he wants her all to himself?
I don’t know quite what I was expecting when I picked up this book, but I was rewarded with a highly captivated and incredibly sensual story that details love, lust, passion, and the intense connections that drive the soul to protect its mate to the ends of the earth. This was such a phenomenal and incredibly written book written by one phenomenal writer.
I highly recommend you read this, it is a novel that will no doubt weave a magic spell on you.
