VAMPIRE . . . Raphael is a power like the world has never seen, the force behind the first ever alliance of North American lords, Cyn's mate, lover, master.

SORCERER . . . Nick Katsaros, deceptively charming, ancient and commanding, driven by vengeance and a devastating loss, Cyn's friend and one-time lover.

HUMAN . . . Cynthia "Cyn" Leighton, beautiful, sexy, and smart, the woman both men desire.

It was only a few months ago that Raphael lay helpless and dying, taken by treachery, while Cyn fought to save him. Unexpectedly, it was Nick who provided the key to his freedom. In exchange, he secured a promise that they would help him find and recover the same magical artifact that had been used to imprison Raphael. But when he calls on them to keep that promise, it will be Cyn who pays the price.

Torn between the two powerful men, struggling to keep them from killing each other, she undertakes a desperate search that will find her fighting for her life against a madman who wants her for himself.

Dorsey’s Review


5 Compelling Stars!!!

D.B.Reynolds delivers once again in Compelled!! We are treated to an enthralling, fast-paced, entertaining and passionate Vampires in America novella!

Two impossibly powerful alphas, who have enough distrust and hatred for one another to cause Cyn headaches are thrown together for a common goal; find the manacles that imprisoned Raphael in Deception, but will the love they share for Cyn be enough to prevent the violence they both want to unleash on one another?

“Vampire,” he said by way of greeting.


“Human!” she sang out in disgust. -Nick, Raphael, and Cyn 

Cyn is called upon to uphold the promise she made to Nick to help with the locating and recovering the dangerous manacles, which were stolen in Hawaii before Nick could recover them. But no one separates Raphael from his mate, and while Nick appears to be a handsome and quick-witted human Cyn learns that her former lover is a very, very old sorcerer, and Raphael has no intention of allowing his Cyn to be alone with this sorcerer while they locate the manacles.

“I hate it when you talk to him.”

“I know. But I don’t know why. I’m yours, fang boy. You’re stuck with me.”

“My heart knows that, but my gut wants to kill every man who’s ever touched you.”

“Aw, that’s romantic…in a creepy, stalkerish sort of way.”-Raphael and Cyn

Subjected to two powerful alphas attempting to undermine each other, Cyn attempts to mediate during their search. But pushed to her limits, Cyn decides to retrieve the manacles from the current owner on her own and escape the constant tension between her mate and her former lover, things don’t go as planned and Raphael and Nick must work together to find Cyn before it’s too late.

As with all the books in this series, we’re treated to great dialogue, humorous moments and all the passion we expect from this captivating couple, I can’t wait for more Vampires in America books!!!
