Book Description

Genre: LGBT, Shape-shifter, Fantasy & Paranormal.
Warning: contains scenes of m/m sex, spanking, fetish.

When a fairy betrothal ritual goes wrong, village lad Tam is bonded to Herne the Hunter. Warrior, legend, and Greenwood spirit, Herne once led the terrifying Wild Hunt, an army of the undead who rode as harbingers of doom. When his passions are stirred and his blood is up, Herne sports the antlers of a mighty stag.

Herne could be the dominant lover Tam secretly craves, but Herne's past makes Tam fear the brooding warrior will enslave or kill him. While Herne admires Tam's toughness and humor, he has rejected love-as he has sworn off leading the Wild Hunt-and wishes only for solitude. To break their betrothal, they must travel into the Greenwood, a realm of magic and bondage where their desires for each other grow dangerously irresistible, and the Wild Hunt bays for their blood.

As the threat rises, Herne's mastery and compassion realize Tam's darkest sexual fantasies. Soon he's no longer fighting for his freedom, wishing to be bound to the beast forever. But can Herne's tortured heart be reawakened? And if so, will their love destroy them both, or prove Herne the Hunter's greatest weapon?

Series: The Greenwood - titles can be read in any order. Related titles: Lord of the Forest, Bound for the Forest, Locking Horns.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic original story written well October 30, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
This is a fab book. Tam is a young gay man struggling in a Tudor world who agrees to a fairy marriage to be accepted by his brothers. When it all goes wrong, he ends up magically 'bonded' to Herne the Hunter, and they have to break the spell or he will die. This is a fun take on the 'arranged marriage' genre, but the setting is totally novel, and I loved the historical, half mythological world. I hadn't read the previous book, Bound for the Forest, but that didn't seem to matter. The sex was a bit weird, but well written. Totally recommended. I've just got the first one (Bound for the Forest) now and looking forward to reading it.

3.0 out of 5 stars A mixed bag April 28, 2014
By Jean
Format:Kindle Edition
I found the sex scenes not exactly to my liking--too much purple prose--but I did enjoy the humorous moments and the growing bond between the two main characters. All in all, it was an okay read; I found myself flipping past some of the extended sex scenes to get to the dialogue, which I enjoyed more.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brooding, sexy, hot! October 21, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
After reading Bound for the Forest, I read the second book in this series 'Bound to the Beast', and its actually my favourite of the two. All the elements I loved the best (a cameo from Herne in book #1, all the magical naughty fairies and forest settings) were more abundant in book #2, which is why it's my fave. If you love mythology, ancient British folklore, and beautiful yet slightly scary visuals (demon riders of The Wild Hunt, spooky forests) then this is totally the story for you.

One very happy customer.

3.0 out of 5 stars 3 Hearts: It seems that this book should have come first. September 1, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
Kay Berrisford - Bound to the Beast (The Greenwood, #2) {Reviewed by Don @ Hearts On Fire Reviews}

This book was a bit of a letdown after reading Bound For The Forest. It seems that this book should have come first. Herne the Hunter was given immortality and the ability to lead the Wild Hunt over fifteen hundred years ago by the goddess herself. Now he is mostly legend and woodsman living a lonely existence deep within the Greenwood. Tam is a young man from a village on the outskirts of the Greenwood who is about to become betrothed to a fairy maiden.

Things go awry when Herne is called to the ritual and becomes betrothed to Tam instead. The betrothal must be consummated within five days or Tam will die. Tam, the fairies and Herne the Hunter do everything they can to find a way to break the betrothal but the answer evades them. Both Tam and Herne desire each other but Herne the Hunter is afraid of killing Tam by consummating their betrothal. Both Tam and Herne the Hunter were well developed characters and I liked both the exuberant Tam and the brooding Herne. The angst dragged out much too long for me which is why the rating is lower. The world building was pretty much in place so Ms. Berrisford could have thrown more action into this story in my opinion.

It would have been nice to know how most of the fairies were killed off because it was stated in book one that there were very few fairies left in the Greenwood. The plot twist at the end was interesting and made for the HEA ending most readers crave.

I would still recommend this story if the reader has read book one but would not suggest this book as a stand alone story.

2.0 out of 5 stars None May 16, 2012
By Sandra
Format:Kindle Edition
I don't know if I just wasn't in the mood for this, but I got bored with the story. It started off good and then slowed down. I also felt distant from the characters, something that got worse as the story progressed. If I could, I might have given it two and a half stars, but for me it didn't merit three stars.

More About the Author

I write m/m adventures and contemporary paranormal tales, usually set in my native England.

When I'm not buried in books, I'm stewarding at a medieval house, or shouting at the world to get involved in awesome events celebrating all things historical.

I love angst-filled romances, in which the heroes suffer a bit (sometimes a lot!) but always get their happy ever afters.
