Release Blitz ~ Seductively Spellbound by Cassandra Lawson

Title: Seductively Spellbound
Series: Spells That Bind #3
Author: Cassandra Lawson
Genre: Paranormal Romance
Release Date: June 29
When Gryph walked out of her life, Julia expected to quickly forget the far too arrogant werewolf. Months later, he’s still starring prominently in her naughtiest dreams. Tired of waiting for Gryph to come around, she decides to take matters into her own hands. When Julia is suddenly in need of a bodyguard, she knows just who to call. With Gryph back in her life, Julia decides it’s time to seduce the sexy werewolf.
A job offer to protect a sassy witch is a temptation Gryph isn’t sure he wants to deal with. He knows being around Julia will be a struggle for both the man and the wolf in him. Still, he can’t trust anyone else to keep her safe. He’s also tired of dreaming of the woman he knows to be his mate. Now, he just needs to focus on two things: proving to the little witch she can’t live without him and keeping her alive.

“Did you find your room?” Gryph asked as he walked into the kitchen, with Oliver by his side.
“Yes,” I replied before shifting uncomfortably from one foot to the other. “Thank you again for letting us stay here.”
A strange look passed over Gryph’s face as he regarded me. His mouth opened, but then he closed it and shook his head.
“What were you going to say?” I asked.
“That this is my job and you don’t have to thank me,” he began. I nodded, oddly hurt by that sentiment before he continued. “Then I realized what a lie that is. You aren’t a job. I don’t have to do this. In fact, I shouldn’t do this. Having you here will create a whole mess of problems for me.”
“Then why are you doing this?” I asked softly. I wanted to walk toward him and rub my hand along his beard. I’d always preferred my partners softer and more refined. Gryph was rough and raw, and I wanted him more than I’d ever wanted anyone.
“You know why I’m doing this,” he murmured. “You already know you’re mine, even if you don’t like hearing it.”
Those words were enough to break the temporary spell I’d been under. “I don’t belong to anyone.”
Gryph looked amused by my statement. “So you’ve said,” he remarked with a smirk.


The newest installment of Lawson's Spells That Bind Series is most definitely my favorite. A story of finding ones place and learning that sometimes you need to take a deeper look at what's right in front of you.
Gryph and Julia were hot! We got to see their undeniable attraction in the previous book and I was beyond excited to find out what was going to happen between these two. Who would have thought a witch and a werewolf would have such chemistry, they certainly didn't. Each wanting the other but both with completely different ideas of where things were going. I enjoyed watching their relationship grow and change throughout the story. Gryph was so tender and sweet, making sure to take things slow, even though it was killing them both (and me!!) It created such a slow burn and so much tension between them.
In addition to the romance, we are once again given a clever mystery. As I read, I tried to piece together all the little clues laid out for us. We only get tiny details sprinkled here and there, I was desperate for answers. I love the way that Lawson includes snippets of the unsubs (in this case The Gentleman Warlock) point of view. It adds an interesting aspect to the story and opens up more of the mystery to us. The suspense builds throughout and when woven in with the rest of the story, I was incapable of putting this book down.
I can't help but find myself caught up in these stories. I don't know what it was about Gryph and Julia but I was drawn to them. I've loved all of the characters in the series but there was just something that set these two apart. Their connection, their dynamic, their personalities, all of it.
I love the way that Lawson has set up subsequent books. Finding out that she's planning a spinoff is exciting!
