This is the last time Jace leaves the Pride compound.  Sent on a mission by Solomon, Jace ends up the captive of a bunch of crazy vampires.  When the Pride tries to get him back, the exchange goes bad and Jace is once again a hostage.  To top it off, it turns out his mate is a drug dealer working for the vamps. 

Book two in the Solomon’s Pride series picks up right where the first story ended so readers will need to read these stories in order.  The Link that Binds finds Jace coping with his situation the best way he can, by making snarky comments meant to set everyone off.  This character made me laugh out loud several times during the course of the story.  He makes the perfect counter point for Link, who is often times too serious.  I wondered, more than once, what the drug dealer’s story was and how the author would make him more agreeable to the readers and she did a great job turning him into a likeable guy.  The chemistry between the two men is hot with a capital H, but their relationship does not start out on the best foot, leading Solomon to step in.  The secrets Link was keeping were surprising, as was Jace’s reactions. 

The turmoil caused by the vamps continues to be an issue.  More than once, I was ready for the felines to just eat the rotten things.  I must admit that after reading this book, I stopped by the author’s website, and not only does she have several more stories planned for this series, but a variety of single titles as well.  I can’t wait to see what she has planned and will be adding this author to my must-buy list.
