Darkness Bound (Chimney Rock 1) Stella Cameron - Paranormal Tour part 2

After her husband's tragic death, Leigh Kelly arrives on Whidbey Island determined to start over. Yet the tiny town of Chimney Rock is not as peaceful as it seems. Women have been disappearing, and Leigh can't shake the feeling that she's being watched . . . especially at night. Soon, she's experiencing visions she can't explain and fighting her attraction to a handsome stranger who seems to know her most intimate desires.


As the leader of the Team, a pack of werehounds forced to hide their very existence, former special ops soldier Niles Latimer is desperate to prove a man's heart beats beneath his predator's body. And Leigh-the mysterious beauty possessing powers she doesn't yet understand-may be the one woman who can help him. But Niles isn't the only one who recognizes Leigh's true identity. Something evil is waiting in the woods-and the hunt has begun . . .

Reviewer: Fashionta
Niles Latimer’s pack members are desperate; they've lost all their females and Niles thinks widow Leigh Kelly could be the answer to a new start. That she could be his mate.
“If she isn’t receptive to me, we’ll forget it—for now. We’d have to anyway.”
“How will you know if she’s receptive?” There was laughter in Sean’s thoughts. “When she arrives, you say, ‘Hi, I’m gonna be your new mate. All the females of my species have died giving birth. I need you—’ ”
There is a war between the werewolf pack and the werehound pack, because the first wants to control the island Two Chimneys. When some vampires, shapeshifters, and fae join the war, nobody knows what side they’ll take.

Women start to disappear, kidnapped by the werewolves who are experimenting with them, trying to create the perfect spy and soldier.

Although Leigh doesn’t know about her past, she is Deseron; the Deseron are the products of mixed marriages between humans and fae. They are a vampire’s wet dream. They can't be turned but they could be all but drained and could mate with werehounds. Deseron's have the ability to see the veil—and use its magic. The Alpha of the werewolf, one of the vampires of the isle, and the fae Queen have discovered Leigh’s existence.

However, there is a fae, Sally, who is fighting for the humans and the werehounds and she told Leigh who and what she is.
You are different. The vapors of Chimney Rocks are from the realm of your ancestors. You see them because you are Deseron. You see the colors of the veil, the veil the fae consider their property. It divides the human from the paranormal and creatures like you and me are the only ones who actually see the substance of that separation. I am fae. You are Deseron. I don’t know how many there are like you but there are more. Of that I’m sure. And now you are needed to help restore balance to a world that is out of control. Right here on Whidbey.”
Niles is afraid of losing Leigh, he already was rejected once by the woman who he loved when she discovered what he was.
Scared of losing you, that is. I can’t make myself believe you’ve accepted me as I am—all of me. I know I’m asking you to do what should be impossible—
And during their fight for they life, they discover that not everything is what it seems.

It was an interesting and incredible story. Perfect for the paranormal lovers, it has vampires, fae, werewolves, and werehounds, action and true love. And it is the first of a series, Chimney Rock, so stay tuned for the next book which will be available at the end of the year. 5 stars for this wonderful book.

I've been following the tour for Darkness Bound and Kiss of the Vampire. I'd love to win both of these books.
