Bonded by Need is the first book in a new series called Shifting Bonds.Â As far as this book is concerned, it definitely makes an impression.Â This world of shifters is unique and sensual with a core of drama that makes for a delicious treat for the reader.Â Having the internal struggle of being two types of shifter adds depth to the story that leaves you sympathizing and hoping for the very best.Â This was definitely “a not to be missed” paranormal adventure.

Nina Pierce makes aÂ statement with Bonded by Need.Â The characters are intense and passionate while the story just pulls you in.Â Â This is a great paranormal story that will appeal to readers who enjoy shifter stories.Â Â Bonded by Need is a four star work with an amazing sense of sensuality andÂ sizzle.Â I am looking forward to the second book in this Shifting Bonds series.
