#NewRelease - Honor Bound - Fantasy Romance

Title: Honor Bound
Author: Michelle Howard
Release Date: January 31, 2014
Genre: Fantasy Romance

To save her people, Mikayla S'Apul has only two options: Become a prize in the upcoming battle or take control of her fate. When a worn journal falls into her hands revealing the secrets of a legendary group of warriors, Mikayla realizes it holds the answer to her dilemma. A marriage of convenience is the only way to protect the Raasa people.

Overlord Vaan Galip is the commander of the Warlord army tasked with protecting Kabanians and bringing peace to his lands. Betrayed by one of his own, joining with Mikayla S'Apul would provide her people with protection while giving him the opportunity for vengeance. Falling for the Raasa female was never part of his plans.

When a common enemy threatens, Vaan and Mikayla learn the true depth of what it means to be bound not only by marriage but by honor

            Another sharp nod was all she managed. He cursed and moved too fast for her to anticipate. The War Lord had Miki in his hold, an arm clamped around her waist and raised his dagger to her throat. “I owe you thanks for my life but if you lie, I will slay you where you stand, Raasa.”
            Fear danced through her. With a shaky breath, she spit out, “Mikayla S’Apul. My name is Mikayla S’Apul.” She wouldn’t accept the continued insult of referring to her by her race. If he killed her, he would know her name.
            He eased his hold marginally and Miki breathed deep. His masculine scent filled her nostrils but did not stop the racing of her pulse. “Will I die from the venom you placed in my mouth?” He asked.
            Miki couldn’t help but to flush. For some reason, the mouth to mouth transfer sounded worse with his phrasing. “No. It is different.”
            He turned her, the blade never wavering. Her back met his chest and he lowered his head along side hers to speak. Warm breath stroked her ear. “I know of the Raasa means of defense and I would have you vow that you have not poisoned my men or I.”
            “I vow that I have not.” She hissed suddenly angry at his accusations. “I seek to save you in exchange for your help.” She struggled in his grip but his hold held firm and the blade bit deeper into her flesh. Miki froze. Would he actually kill her?
            “Tell me this bargain you seek and I will decide if we accept.”
            The others did nothing to aid her. In fact, the one she was beginning to hate intensely smirked at her. “I need a mate.” No response, not even a betraying twitch. He knew. They’d already told him of her desire. This was a game. A cruel game. She bit her lip to control her wayward tongue. Anger would solve nothing at this point. Putting pride to the side, Miki repeated her bargain. “In exchange for saving your lives, I seek a true union to help me and my house defend ourselves against Thenl.”
            “You have refused the others.” He ran the blade from her neck to her shoulder and back again. It wasn’t a question.
            “The others would not have me and I would not have the Over Lord,” she corrected.
            His entire frame stiffened. “You would refuse the leader of the War Lords you see before you? Why?”
