Well, well, well. This was a surprise. “Surrender to his desires” is right. Believe it or not this is the first time I have read a book with the male MC as a submissive. Shocking I know. Not for a lack of desire, but alpha males have always been my go to when reading romance.
What I found in Unbound was not at all what I expected. Oh, he’s alpha alright, but his bed play…. Well that’s something else. Dare I say sweet? For whatever reason, Rob’s character snuck in and touched my heart. I found him likeable and endearing. Well suited for Merry. He was exactly what she needed.
Unbound can get a little long. I found myself trying to skim read, but couldn’t, as I didn’t want to miss anything. Loved the ending and wanted more. I wish the reader got an epilogue.

From the cover…….
She set out to find herself, and discovered the darker side of desire.
Merry’s lost a lot recently—first her mother, then close to a hundred pounds. Feeling adrift, she strikes out in search of perspective. A three-week hike through the Scottish Highlands was supposed to challenge her new body and refocus her priorities, but when disaster strikes, she’s forced to seek refuge in the remote home of a brooding, handsome stranger…
Rob exiled himself to the Highlands years ago, desperate to escape his own self-destruction. Haunted by regrets, he avoids human contact at all costs…but when Merry turns up injured, he can’t very well run her off. And as he nurses her back to health, Rob can’t resist his guest’s sweet demeanor—or her flirtatious advances. The igniting passion between them rouses a secret appetite Rob has long struggled to keep hidden. But Merry craves nothing more than to help Rob surrender to his desires, and the journey draws the lovers into an entirely different kind of wilderness.
