Bound By Spells by Stormy Smith
Aidan Montgomery hadn’t been prepared for Amelia Bradbury to walk in and then out of his life. He also hadn’t expected to find the powerful magic hidden deep within him for the last nineteen years, but he’s embracing it — finding more control and more answers every day. Now, with the help of Amelia’s best friend, Bethany, Aidan is on a quest to understand his destiny and find Amelia.
Amelia decided to stand by her duty, which meant walking away from her first chance at love. Trapped in Cresthaven at the Queen’s mercy, she spends her days with Micah — an ally she still holds at arm’s length — struggling to manage her heartbreak while keeping her mind focused on the task at hand. As she continues to unlock the secrets of the Keeper power, Queen Julia’s true motives reveal themselves, forcing Amelia to decide, yet again, how much she’s willing to sacrifice.
Will Aidan get to Amelia before it’s too late, or will the very power that sustains them keep them apart?
Stormy did it again! I love, love, love this series! I was hooked after reading her first book in the bound series ‘Bound by Duty’ and was so excited to read ‘Bound by Spells’… It certainly did not disappoint! Stormy created such a fun world of magic and Mages and Anti-mages! I think she does a fantastic job of “sucking” the reader into this world and making you just fall in love with the characters.
In this book, the reader is taken further into the story of Amelia and Aiden and their discovery of their separate powers and how the responsibility they each have to control them and use them for good. They also realize the are far more important to each other than either of them had suspected before. Although they are separated from one another most of this book, they find ways to be together in dreams and thought.
Throughout this story, I have been touched as I read about the love of an older brother to his sister, the sacrifices mothers and fathers make for their children, the unbreakable bond of family and best friends that try to understand and forgive. Although this is a book of fiction, these are such important relationship lessons for us all.
I really love everything about this book from the cover of the book – showing Aiden and his blue eyes – to being drawn in from the very first chapter until the end of the book which left me wanting more and excited to see what will happen next! This series is full of excitement, love, friendship, and discovery! I cant wait to read her next installment of this series!
Thank you, Stormy, for taking me again into this wonderful world you have created in the Bound books… No surprise, I rate it 5 stars !

Destiny’s Past (1st book in the Trilogy):
No-nonsense medical examiner, Kelly Richards, relies on the familiar comforts of science and scalpels to get her through the day. So when a not-so-dead guy who claims he’s from the past lands on her autopsy table, she considers calling the men in white coats to escort him to a padded room. But Jarek’s old-world ways and hot gaze trick her heart into falling for him—a mistake she swore she’d never make again.
When Jarek, Prince of Leisos, discovers someone he trusts has been slowly poisoning him, he travels to the future in search of a cure. Driven by vengeance, he enlists the help of an impudent scientist to return him to his time.
As they try to find a solution, Kelly struggles with her feelings for Jarek while dodging the police and a visitor from her past.
Caught between his growing desire for Kelly and the need to expose his would-be assassin before they strike again, Jarek must decide between forfeiting his ticket home or losing the only woman he’s ever loved.
