Our love is on his terms. He contacts me only through notes − unpredictable and untraceable. When we meet, he can touch me, but I'm not allowed to touch him. When we make love, it's only after I have been bound and blindfolded. It's the only time I truly feel alive. Which is why I play along with it. For now.
Caden Thaine is the most sinfully beautiful man I have ever seen. But more than that, his touch sets me on fire. And dear God, do I ache for him. I don't know where he lives or even what he does. But this doesn't scare me. My only fear is that one day his messages will stop.
I know he's hiding something. But that's okay. I am hiding things, too. Like my real name and... who I really am. But what we have is enough. Sort of. And everything works
Until one day, I follow him.
Soon our dark pasts will collide and I will discover just how much we are both bound by lies.
Adult romantic suspense. +18 years.

You know a book is a keeper when it doesn't even matter that the main character's name is not revealed. Quite an unusual characteristic for a standard story, but Hanna Peach gets five stars for breaking new ground in BOUND BY LIES (Bound 1).
The story is told in first person, alternating between past and present. The author skillfully provides the back story, making sure the transitions are smooth and natural. The focus is on two tortured, broken people who find themselves drawn together. Caden Thaine has all the characteristics of an alpha male, but he's got some major issues. He calls the narrator of the story, "Kitten", and she proves herself worthy of the description.
Every interaction comes with a set of rules as the couple explores the boundaries of trust. Can you trust someone you aren't allowed to touch? What happens when you become so utterly, hopelessly attached to someone, but you still keep secrets? In this case, you are BOUND BY LIES.
The author weaves a story of dark torment that is a flawless piece of work, complete with a trailblazing storyline and erotic scenes that are off the chart. Forget everything you have ever considered as "normal" in a relationship. Caden and Kitten create their own version of normal.
Block off a chunk of time for this one, because once you read the first paragraph, there's no stopping until the end. All the ingredients are in place for this new series to captivate readers. The only thing missing is the next installment.
