Bound Forever - Now Available

Bound Forever released around midnight Monday night! *big squee*

Yesterday I finished a book and today I had a book release. I'm just beside myself with excitement. It takes me a while to write a book and I don't have a lot of releases every year. So back-to-back squee days have gotten me a little over-excited. But it is really exciting, so I don't care if I've fallen off the geeked end.

I will say, I'm feeling a bit (a tiny bit) sad. Bound Forever is the last book for Oliver and Vincent. I'll still do freebie shorts for them, but it's their last published book. Bound by Deception was my 1st published book (way back in Sept'08), and now the series is done. I didn't initially plan for it to be a series. I knew when I finished BBD that Oliver and Vincent's story wasn't done yet, and when I was writing Bound to Him, I realized they needed one more to get to a rock-solid HEA. And now that one more has been released. But I refuse to get too sappy. In any case, I feel another happy dance coming on. ;)

Lord Oliver Marsden’s life is perfect...well almost perfect. His bookshop is doing well, his bank account isn’t empty, and his nights are filled with a deliciously dominant man…who tends to be a bit too domineering outside of the bedchamber. But Vincent loves him and that’s all that should matter. Right? And of course, Vincent still firmly holds the reins of control. Yet while Oliver feels Vincent is finally ready to give himself fully to him, to make good on the offer Oliver refused a year ago, the looming threat his lover could someday be forced to marry keeps him from tugging the reins from Vincent’s grasp.

Then Vincent receives a letter that changes everything. Oliver seizes the moment and pushes Vincent toward a night neither of them will ever forget. Yet come dawn, Oliver awakens to an empty bed.

Lord Vincent Prescot knows he loves Oliver. The man’s his best friend and he trusts him. So why does submitting to Oliver leave him so shaken? It doesn’t take him long to find the answer, yet his solution could drive his lover away for good.

Excerpt from Chapter One


  1. I'm sad, too. Bound by Deception was the first book I read of yours. I love Oliver and Vincent!

    :( I will savor every word of this one, Ava.

  2. squeeeeuqs (back to back squees)

    I'm so looking forward to reading this one! Then perhaps I'll go back and start the series over again!

  3. Oh yay!! Gulp, must admit it fell off my radar. I was wondering what you were doing up so late last night, lol!!

    Congrats on your release, and while I'm sad there won't be more about these guys, I'm sure you left their future together bright! :) Thanks for your wonderfulness.

  4. Aww, thanks, Barbara!!

    Wren - clever! but I'll admit it took me a second to realize what squeeeeuqs meant, with me with my head tipped to one side trying to sound out the word. Yeah, I'm not too swift sometimes. LOL

    Thanks, Janna!

    Devon - I'm usually up late, but last night was super late 'cause of all the squee-citement. LOL

  5. Congrats!!! I'm looking forward to reading it later this evening. :)

  6. Congrats! Happy release day.

    I'm just getting acquainted with these naughty boys. I can't decide who is naughtier. Who cares really, as long as they are both naughty. :)

  7. Thanks, Lily!

    Hey FV - good question. Um...I can't decide which one is naughtier either. ;)

  8. Hi! I am from Ecuador and love your books! Specially these books about Vincent and Oliver! BBD was my first book from you and since then I have read every book you've published! Please never stop writing such amazing novels!

    I wish they'll publish your books in Spanish! I have many friends who will love to read your books but don't feel comfortable reading in English.

    Thanks again such incredible stories!

    Lots of love from Ecuador!

  9. Hi Anna - Thanks so much! It's great to hear that you enjoy the books, and that you're a fan of Oliver and Vincent. They are my favorite couple that I've written so far. :)
