 Bound 1


Omg! This book blew me away! AM Hudson has managed to do it again! This book is a change to the Spin off, Dark Secrets Series. It present a more quirky, light, and fun atmosphere while still giving us an on the edge kind of read. It is very well written that manages to suck you into the story from the start.

The characters are fun loving carefree people that truly care about their friendships as they blossom. Lora is a fun loving girl that manages to still all the characters hearts as well as your own. She’s a quirky girl that loves life and having a great time. She notices this boy that drives her crazy and then starts to see into his heart. She’s clearly a part of her Mom and Dad(David and Ara). This book has so much details and starts a fresh beginning that you don’t need to read the other series first. I am such a huge fan that I just HAVE to read all her books.

Then their is Ric a rambling soul on the road for fun and girls. Lora really sees into his soul for who he really is a beautiful soul. He also sees into hers and is drawn to her beyond what he understands. The time they spend together sets you into a light hearted mood and makes you literally at times laugh you head off!

Bound sent me through a roller coaster of emotions. I laughed through a good bit of the book but, at times I seen twist and turns that I didn’t see coming causing me to hang onto to the edge of my seat. This series so far though is a more light read making it kind of refreshing. She managed to through one punch of a cliffhanger! She’s talented at that though as usual. Lol. That moment I was sad and anxious wanting to know what’s next! You’re killing me AM Hudson! Lol.

AM Hudson takes you on a supernatural highway embarking on adventure and twist that are very different then other paranormal books. That’s why it’s so intriguing. Their is so much suspense and turns that you are always intrigued and never bored! I’ve read so many books that often you know that it’s the scenario that will happen because the way the book is laid out. You can’t possible tell in this book or any of her series what will happen next and I freaking LOVE IT! Way to go AM Hudson! I received this ARC for an honest review.

Bound 2

New world. New powers. Old enemies.

Elora enters the dark world of secrets from her parents’ past, and in the midst of discovering her new abilities and learning how to use them, she will be forced to fight battles she’s unprepared for in a war that supposedly ended twenty-two years ago.

Old enemies forge new friendships, leaving Elora lost and unsure who to trust, until a cocky vampire walks back into her life with a gift and a clue that will set the end of everything in motion.

The final chapter in the two-book Dark Secrets spin-off series, BOUND.

 Bound 2


AM Hudson again out does her self! She brought a story that has put an impact in all our lives. I was frustrated at the beginning because I was so anxious for the love story to continue. The twist and turns only thickened as the plot pored out on the pages showing suspense, intrigue,lies,secrets,adventure and more. Elora left an old life to embark on a new one. Knowing this was the final installment left me sad but enjoyed how the book layer it out.

I laughed,cried, and yelled at times because this book gives you emotions that otherwise aren’t pulled out in most books. The character manages to approach things with a positive outlook even though her experiences have this entire series touched my heart. AM Hudson has a way of bringing out a total different aspect of things and it’s awesome. Her worlds are very fluent so much that it flows through your mind bleeding into your soul.

Elora is smart and witty and seems to catch on at a level way faster then her mother. She again becomes the badass in the story following the footsteps of her mother. Will she ever find her parents? Who can she trust in this new world? Will Ric come to her? Elora has made many changes and is stealing the hearts of most in the immoral world.

Ric is still his handsome self with a hint of something new, Elora. He leaves a New World to come to the Old in search for Elora. He brings many things that’s precious to her and creates change. Is she ready for that? She is a Knight after all. This world has shown her many new things that are an adventure and wonders of a lifetime. She has also experienced something that no one ever wants to endure, loss.

Sometimes when you lose all you search for healing finding your purpose. The one thing I noticed that Elora was missing in the beginning was purpose. She spent countless times healing the heart of the dead but, once she decided to bleed into her music, she realized that she could heal the living as well. That to me is destiny because she felt complete.

Never have I read before were the author has expressed through her characters such depth and understanding. Elora experienced loss, but the depths of understanding was expressed through such magnitude that a person could totally relate on such a powerful level. It made an impact on me because having experience a huge loss in my life, I was able to relate and understand Elora’s character. The author doesn’t just express the sadness but explains it so you know they understand loss. At the same time knowing it’s their but understanding things more clearly because of it. Elora examined everything through a microscope and pulled at the layers creating a deeper yet richer understanding. She approach things using a positive aspect to get through it. This outlook gave this book a light and refreshing outlook. I liked it. The authors allows you to understand this on such a level that I’ve never experienced before in reading. It’s phenomenal.

An Interview with LUCIAN BANE!

Lucian Bane’s Bio


Hello, Lucian here. I’m a husband, author, and Christian who loves writing tales—paranormal erotic romance, contemporary erotic romance, fantasy romance and dark erotica– about men who honor, cherish, and protect the women they love. Also stories that are real enough to form a sort of how-to bridge for the readers, teaching them “how to” add heat and passion to their marriages and relationships; teach them how to build life-long commitments–like I have with my own beautiful wife–and build strong families; all of which serve as a healthy foundation in society.

I think there are many men like myself, and I hope my writing will be a map for them. A map for women as well, to teach them how to bring out the strength that exists within the men they call boyfriend or husband. Teach them how to dance out their fairytale romance in a world that isn’t kind to the happily ever afters we all hope to achieve.

You know, when I was younger, I submitted to my inner reckless and tireless desires, but when I gave myself to God and conformed my will to His, the transformation made me into what I am today. A man that believes and endorses Forever Love. Something we could stand a lot more of in our times, don’t you think?



1) what in your life influenced you to be a writer?

I think my mother. She was artistic and encouraged me as well. It was an easy direction for me because it was in the opposite direction my father wanted me to take, lol. Rebellious from an early age, yes.

2) why did you choose the genre that you write in?

I had a mission to show the world what a real Dom should look like. A real man. I was seeing a wicked trend in that area that I wanted to disrupt.

3) do you like to listen to music or the tv in the background or do you prefer silence when you write?

It depends on what stage of writing. When I’m plotting, no. When I’m in the zone in the charactes, yes, very much.

4) do you have a special place you go to write?

Not really, I write at my giant glass desk, lol, from my ergonomics chair.

5) how do you come up with the different twists to your stories?

Good question. I honestly don’t know how. I just know I hate doing things like everybody else and I guess that sparks those twists.

6) can you share something extra with us that you want the viewers to know?

I took an essential oils class because I plan to incorporate it into my profession. I firmly believe in them and would love to teach couples how to use them, especially in the bedroom.

7) which authors have inspired you with their writing and how?

Definitely Stephen King. The way his stories carry his stories more than his writing does. Just simple brilliance with the  

8) how do you come up with your characters?

My characters are usually born straight from my storyline. I see the story usually and the character that will play the part rises out of that. I probably have had characters come to me and i have found places in stories for them but that is usually how they come–straight from the storyline and theme. They select them and birth them.

9) is there a certain mind frame you have to be in to write?

I have learned to discipline my mind to conform to the demands of writing professionally and on a timeline. I hear a lot of writers talk about writer’s block and really, I don’t have time for it, nor can I afford it, lol. Writing is not just an art for me, it’s a discipline. While I do allow my passions to run wild when I write, I don’t let them run my schedule. Now plot and storyline can be stubborn sometimes and make me sweat, but I always manage to win lol.

10) what or who is your inspiration or muse?

Definitely my wife. I write so that I can eventually keep her home (which I have achieved) The other muse I guess would be God. I do have a mission in fiction to help all couples find sexual healing so that their marriages and families can be stronger.

11) who is your favorite author?

Def Stephen King

12) which character of yours is your favorite and which one do you relate to the most?

I would have to say my favorite character is Jeramiah Poe from my Fantasy Arks of Octava. He was so much fun to write and I loved his character. As far as the character that I can relate to the most, that would be Lucian from Dom Wars, lol. Since it’s written after me

Capitol Submission review book 1-4 by Skylar Cross

Skylar Cross book 1


I recognized you the moment our eyes met in the dark room with the velvet curtains at the club.

By day, you’re in charge of the world. You’ve worked hard to get where you are.

You’re in demand, responsible, and people depend on you. You’re good at what you do, and you know it.

But I know your secret.

Here in this dark room you can let go of all that.

Here with me you are free.

Free to feel the longings deep inside you.

Free to be commanded, controlled, and driven to submission.


Nobody will ever know.

It’s our little secret.

I won’t tell anyone how it turns you on when you submit to my natural ability to dominate, the dirty filthy words that excite you and cause you to breathe faster, and the little squeals of pleasure you make when I insist you obey me.

It’s why you continue to meet me…despite your professional career, your upbringing, and your logical mind.

Face it.

You’re addicted to me.

Now acknowledge me the way I taught you and follow my command.
