Book Description

The one man she wants is the one man destined to destroy her.

Dark Souls, Book 1

Sooner or later we all end up dead. Jace Cutler doesn’t have the luxury of staying that way. After receiving a fatal stab wound, he awakens in a hospital room in Portland, Oregon, with no memory and a big hole where his soul used to be. Worst of all is the glow. Everyone is surrounded by a strange white aura he hungers to possess, none more compelling than the one enveloping Dr. Lia Benson.

Lia has always been ruled by reason, refusing to put stock in such nebulous things as destiny. Until Jace dies in her arms, then miraculously comes back to life. Whenever he’s near, her soul responds and her body burns. And she’s consumed by odd dreams she’s convinced are Jace’s lost memories.

When Lia is kidnapped, Jace tracks her and discovers a shocking explanation for who—and what—he is. Something no longer human, a dark legacy that until now has lain dormant within him. Something that could destroy the one woman he’d sacrifice everything to protect.

Warning: Contains bone-melting sexual tension, scary battle scenes, heartrending emotion guaranteed to keep you turning the pages well into the night, and a positively divine hero who may just steal your soul.

"With the first book in her Dark Souls series, Hope gives readers a page-turning love story about two lost souls. Her worldbuilding is on par with Sherrilyn Kenyon, and she tortures her characters just as much! The secondary characters, with their own superpowers and faults, add to the fun. Can't wait for book two!"
 
--4.5 stars, Karen Sweeny-Justice

Book Description

Jace wakes in a hospital room with an alleged stab wound, no memory of his past, and a big hole where his soul used to be. Worst of all, everyone is surrounded by a strange white aura he hungers to possess, none more compelling than Dr. Lia Benson’s.

Lia never put stock in destiny until Jace dies in her arms, then miraculously comes back to life. Whenever he’s near, her soul responds and her body burns. And she’s consumed by odd dreams she’s convinced are Jace’s lost memories. Except Jace is no longer human. He’s something destined to kill.

4.0 out of 5 stars Paranormal At Its Best February 26, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
The blurb about the book catches your attention but the characters and the story line really keeps you in the book. I have not wanted to put this book down since I got it. I fell in love with Jace and Lia almost from the start. Jace is brought into Lia's world after being stabbed and he dies on her table in the ER and mysteriously he comes back to life. Everyone thinks she is crazy because when they look at him nothing is wrong he is the picture of perfectness (is that a word lol) what Lia doesn't know is there are dark forces working to make everyone around her forget, everyone that is but her, but that is because she is special, she doesn't know that either, not yet but she soon does.

Jace and Lia are drawn to each other, they don't know why as everything else around them crumbles and falls apart what they have continues to grow stronger and try as Jace might to break that bond the pull is to strong and he finally gives in cementing what was written long ago. Their destiny's, there is something they are both meant to fulfill and no matter what it will play out how depends on them but either way what was written long ago will come to be.

Battle between good and evil is within just about every page of the book, Jace is a hybrid born of a human and a nephalim but he is not like the others, he is different, his soul and that of Lia's are stronger and united they are just about unbreakable, or are they.

I like how the book takes you through Jace's death and transformation into this hybrid that he is, a supposed soulless creature that feeds off the souls of others if he chooses and the battle he goes through every day to contain that evil side of him. How at first he struggles to understand what he is and what he has become.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fallen angels and souls collide October 9, 2014
By Rekha
Format:Kindle Edition
Does the Book of Enoch fascinate you?

What if legends became reality and the Nephilim and their descendants continued to roam undetected on Earth?
Soul Bound by Anne Hope is an urban fantasy about those giants who survived and multiplied over the centuries, while protecting and corrupting humans in equal measure.

A fantasy romance of this sort won't be complete without the forbidden fruits - the humans and their souls - playing their part. For Lia Benson MD, the fateful day at the Oregon hospital seems to stretch on forever until Jace Cutler is brought in with a deadly stab wound. The doctor's despair turns into an unexplainable sense of relief and pleasure when he is miraculously revived shortly after dying on the ER table.

Jace, her sister Cassie's ex-boyfriend, wakes up but without a memory. Poor Lia's nightmares don't end there. Strange happenings at the hospital and Jace's sudden departure leave her baffled and saddened. Jace has changed; physically stronger with special abilities, an increased longing for darkness and an unquenchable need for Lia. A strange connection is forged with Jace which brings the two closer, but also brings dark, soulless and truly evil creatures closer still.

Even as they struggle to accept the new realities, trouble is brewing with humanity's future at stake. The immortals they meet are both good and evil. Trusting the wrong ones could sound the death knell for them. Should they fight with the Watchers - the half-humans or Hybrids like Jace who defend humans from both rogue hybrids and evil descendants of the Nephilim - the Kleptopsychs? Is there a price to pay? Will the soul mates be torn apart forever?

4.0 out of 5 stars `I know what I saw.' October 8, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
Canadian author Anne Hope has a strong following for her eight books of emotionally intense romantic thrillers with a twist--a twist of humor, a twist of suspense, a twist of magic. According to her website, `I've always thought of myself as a romance author. Every story I've written revolves around the protagonists' emotional journey and usually ends with a happily-ever-after. Despite a backdrop of murder and supernatural mayhem, the love story between the hero and the heroine remains a pivotal element in each of my books. So, it makes perfect sense that I should consider myself a romance author. Recently, however, I've noticed something interesting. Fans and reviewers sometimes refer to my books as thrillers. Then it dawned on me. I am writing thrillers. Romantic thrillers, but thrillers nonetheless. My main goal as an author is to thrill my readers, be it through the sizzling romance, the intricate worlds I imagine or a pulse-pounding action scene. I believe that plot is just as integral to a story as the emotional journey of the characters.'

It takes a polished mindset to blend romance and the paranormal without caving into the extremes of either. Ann Hope manages that in SOUL BOUND. The introduction of bodies taking on a different identity instead of dying may not be new but Anne makes it intensely real right up to the surprising Epilogue of this book. From the opening chapter in which Jace Cutler, a rather bizarre soul from the author's description, suffers a life threatening would from a barroom scuffle with a filthy biker known as Viper. Instead of feeling the agony of the wounds he sinks to the floor feeling numbness. Jace is brought into Dr. Lia Benson's Rivershore ER where Lia recognizes him as one of her sister Cassie's exes.
