For readers already familiar with the Bellum sisters, we already know that Lily Bellum is more than a handful. She is rambunctious, crazy, and often doesn’t think before she acts, but she is also very smart and has a heart of pure gold. Telal Demuzi is a demon who has been given guardianship of Lily, and Lily is determined that he is the man for her, regardless of his thoughts on the matter.
Now her sisters are gone, off with their own mates, and Lily is left on her own. She decides on a whim to go see Telal, much to his chagrin, and after a hair-raising adventure on the road to his office, Lily has arrived. Telal has so much going on he barely has time to deal with her, and her birthday is looming. Telal has decided to open the rift and allow his relatives out of the Underworld. Needless to say, that plan does not go as he intends, and Telal is forced to face the situation that is Lily Bellum. Can Telal survive Lily’s scheming and learn to accept her as he is meant to do? Can he mend fences with his family and open the rift? Can lily learn to accept her feelings for Telal and learn to live with his domineering manner, knowing it is there for her safety? Can Lily save Telal from his own self destructive tendencies? Read on to find out.
Ties That Bind is a hair-raising, nail biting, heartwarming adventure of the grandest scale. Of all three of the Bellum sisters, Lily would have to be my personal favorite, as she is charming, quirky, and not a little bit spunky and outrageous. She is also still a delicate and unsure young lady. This is a perfect conclusion to the Bellum sisters trilogy, and I absolutely loved it.
Three Fates. Three Sisters.
Lily Bellum keeps many secrets, even from those she loves the most. With a determination and mind-set that only she can help the demon Telal Demuzi—she sets off to join him in his cause for demon's rights, whether he wants it or not. But things don’t seem to go right from the beginning. To say he’s resistant to her charms is putting it lightly, but Lily is not one to back down or give in easily. She pursues Telal, slowly breaking down his incredible defenses one smile, kiss, and touch at a time.
Telal’s years of planning are finally coming to fruition—to open the rift. Once a betrayer of his people, now he’s determined to fix the past. But one man stands in his way; one man who’s turned out to be a dark and sinister version of the boy he once knew. His plan to open the rift is met with hostility, resistance, and bloodshed unlike he’d ever thought possible. Telal finds that losing himself in the sweet body of Lily Bellum proves an excellent treatment to the chaos around him. Together, Telal and Lily get wrapped up in a world of dark magic, love, betrayal, and murder in the greatest journey of their lives.
