Synopsis (from Goodreads): Six years ago, an attack by a rogue werewolf plunged Doctor Connor McNair’s perfect life into nightmare. Now the mere scent of blood awakens the beast within him. He’s teetering on the brink of self-destruction when an intriguing rumor leads him to the desolation of Rannoch Moor and the one woman who might call him back from the darkness. Part of a telepathic experiment that went dangerously wrong, Keira’s mind will destroy anyone who gets too close. Unable to control her powers, she has cut herself off from all human contact and found a measure of peace hiding on the moors with only the wild animals for company. Until Connor arrives, awakening hopes and desires buried deep inside her. Connor is determined to save her, but some wounds are beyond the powers of a doctor to heal and time is running out, because Keira’s mind holds secrets that certain people would kill to keep hidden…
I think Bound to Secrets is my favourite of the series, and I felt that I saw a lot more of the action that is present in other of Croft's books in this one as opposed to the other two. However I also couldn't help but feel (or maybe hope is more accurate!) that there will be more to this series! I know I still have questions!
While the events in Bound to Secrets are stand alone for the most part, the full affect is better if you've read the previous books Bound to Night (Tasha's story) and Bound to Moonlight (Anya's story). There may be minor spoilers within my review.
Keira certainly came with her own set of baggage. All three of the sisters had their own troubles stemming from the Agency, but Keira seemed to be the most enlightened about their activities. She also seemed to be the one most affected by what had been done to her.
Connor was a minor character in the first two books, and as such I had a vague sense of him going into Bound to Secrets. He seemed llike a decent guy but the broody kind of wolf as opposed to one that owned who he was (like Sebastian in the previous books). This one really brought him into his own though and it felt like his story as much as Keira's.
The relationship between Keira and Connor did grow through the book, even if it was an almost instant trust between the two of them. As this was a novella you do expect the love side of things to go faster anyway though!
This was a good read, and I do hope there is more to come from the series!
