Brandr is walking down the sidewalk at Redondo Beach, lost in deep thought when he walked right into a parking meter. Surfer Tyler Ferris grabs Brandr’s arm in an attempt to prevent his fall. Instead of a thank you, Brandr throws Tyler against Tyler’s Jeep. Striking his head, Brandr’s nose starts to bleed with a few drops landing on Tyler’s mouth and the bond is formed when Tyler ingests Brandr’s blood.

Bonded is the second installment in the Bonded series and a fantastic story with great characters. Before he was turned into a vampire, Brandr was the scourge of the Baltic Sea. His band of Vikings terrorized coastal cities from Helsinki to Copenhagen. Now he is an author of romance novels. Sharing his home are three recently turned vampires whom Brandr chose to mentor in the vampire skills needed to survive. The first is Kyle, who spends most of his time in front of the TV when not perusing his rent boy career. Henry is into yoga and quiet contemplation. Jamie is all about working on his laptop or playing computer games. Brandr complains about the lack of peace in his household. However, underneath his grumpy exterior, he likes having that close connection with the other men. Tyler is an intelligent easy-going man starting over after breaking up with his loser boyfriend when he accidently becomes bonded to Brandr. Although he is attracted to several of the vampires and not opposed to the bond once he discovers the meaning, Tyler wants to remain in his own apartment rather than be the only human in a vampire household.

Jay Lygon has created an amazing episode for this series. The interesting plot is well written, the interaction between the characters is hilarious. Bonded is entertaining, as well as very enjoyable. I look forward to the next installment of this incredible saga.
