Bound to a Vampire
Cassandra Monteclaire is a three-hundred-and-sixty-year-old vampire living in modern-day New York. Her human life as a midwife and healer ended three centuries earlier when, condemned as a witch, she was rescued and turned by a Master Vampire named Killian. Bonded in a passionate trio with their human Protector, the three lived an exciting and dangerous life full of love, decadence, power and dark passion. But their world came crashing down when Killian vanished without a trace.
A human ally of Cassandra’s has proof Killian is alive and methodically killing off members of his organization. Killian is now a marked man, and Cassandra must find him before time runs out and he is eliminated.
But Cassandra has secrets of her own. She is in possession of an amazing gift – the ability to heal–which she has had to keep hidden from human kind. It is also her greatest weakness. She may be a vampire, but she never stopped being a healer. By using this miraculous gift, Cassandra put her beloved trio at great risk. Now, centuries later, Cassandra must journey into her torrid past and face her demons before she can fight for what was lost.
Filled erotic passion and dark mystery, Bound to a Vampire is a turbulent paranormal thriller that delves into the personal history of these vampires and the dramatic events that shaped them into who they are. It is also a world where the BDSM power exchange between mates is as essential to their survival as the blood they drink.
By finding Killian, her true Master, Cassandra can save herself and her cherished mate, both of whose life forces are slowly fading. They are each a severed piece of one heart that must be put back together if they ever hope to survive…

About Grey Francis:
My life is a balancing act. A Mother of two children and four cats. A domestic goddess, whose work is never done. An aspiring cook and avid reader. And the writer of Paranormal Erotic Romances. Sometimes I feel as if I’m living a double life! Often, I find myself in line at the market or sitting at Parent Night at one of my kid’s schools, working out a steamy scene in my head that I’m in the middle of writing. Real life collides on a regular basis with the voices of my dark, seductive characters that live inside me.
Before starting the Into the Dark Woods Series, I studied journalism, worked in book publishing in New York as well as the film industry in Los Angeles. I eventually set out on my own to write screenplays full time. I wrote a number of scripts, most of which dealt with the paranormal and romance. I have always been drawn to the creatures of the night, primarily vampires. I also like venturing into more erotic territory. The two parts of my inner writer found each other when I decided to devote myself to writing novels and the Into The Dark Woods series was born. During these years, I married and had two children, taking off a certain amount of time to adjust to the challenges and joys of motherhood. The first day my youngest daughter entered pre-school, I set up my lap top in a coffee shop next to the school and started work on Bound to a Vampire. I’ve never looked back.
The best part about being a writer is spending my days with complicated, often funny, and incredibly sexy characters. Writing is also unpredictable, my characters often paving new, unexpected directions in my storylines. My favorite character started out a minor player in Book One, but a quarter of the way through the writing, I fell so in love with his dark, amorous, complex personality, he became one of my central characters.
I am currently at work on my third book and have a total of nine books planned in the series. I just released my second book, King in Chains and so far the response has been great! You can get updates on giveaways and upcoming releases on my Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Goodreads pages. I love hearing from readers and fellow writers, so feel free to contact me!
