Bound to the Bounty Hunter (The Bound Series #1)

By Hayson Manning

Bound to the Bounty Hunter


Harlan Franco, Colorado’s busiest bounty hunter and security expert, lives by his own rules: be in control, be detached, and never mix business with pleasure. These rules are tested when the woman he’s being paid to secretly guard is none other than the sexy, unpredictable, pain in the butt, Sophie Callaghan––a woman determined to stay away from him. If Sophie finds out he’s in her life on an assignment, he’ll never get the info he needs. But those lips, those curves, that attitude… If he could only have her for one night where she’d play by his rules.

Freedom-loving private investigator Sophie Callaghan is on a mission. The daughter of a con-artist is not going to be used by a man again. What she doesn’t need is hot, broody, and controlling Harlan barging into her life. Her brain may say no, but her body craves this bad boy.

After a night where both live out their darkest desires, Sophie tries to fight the explosive chemistry between them. But the ties that bind her heart to this bounty hunter are tight and tangled.


Bound to the Bounty Hunter centers around Sophie and Harlan.  It starts off in a way that I could totally identify with.  Sophie was talking to her favorite soap opera and to her dog like he was a person.

Sophie is a private investigator and while under cover at a BDSM club she comes across her nemesis, Harlan, that wants to know why she would be there.  Her wrist band says submissive and his wrist band says big bad dom. Hmm….. Let the fun begin.

In their history, Harlan humiliated Sophie in one of the worst ways ever but somehow I found a way to love him.  As fate would have it, she is his next job (unknown to her).  Harlan has been given the task of gathering information on a daughter of a powerful man that was kidnapped as a child.   This child is believed to be Sophie.  This immediately puts her in danger from people that would hurt her in order to get to this man and losing her heart to a man that has rules about getting personally involved with anyone besides a one-night stand.

This novel has a great pace and great characters to it.  Sophie is sassy and stuck to her guns. She has great friends, Annie and Gemma.  (I loved their girl’s nights.)  Harlan is arrogant and dominant.  He has many good qualities and a great team behind that is not afraid to put him in his place.  This is a great start to this series.

Quote:  “Please take you hands off me or I’ll tase you.”
His lips twitched, and his eyes sparkled. “Don’t make me laugh, babe, because I’m kind of pissed and that’s funny.”
