Review: Bannockburn Binding

[1]Tracy Cooper-Posey has cemented her spot on my “auto buy” list with her latest release, Bannockburn Binding [1].  The first in Beloved Bloody Time series, Bannockburn Binding [1] takes the vampire, time travel, futuristic, and M/M/F genres and meshes them in such a way that only Tracy Cooper-Posey can do. I’ve never been a fan of futuristic, sci-fi or time-travel books, but the characters and worlds that Tracy builds for her readers is impossible not to love. In Bannockburn Binding [1], vampires have learned how to travel through time. In the 23rd century, the Chronometric Conservation Agency was formed to help keep history from being changed and causing damage to the future. Vampires work for the agency as time travelers and take clients on trips back to the past.

Natalia (Tally) Marta is a vampire traveler who has taken a client back to Scotland in the 1300’s. There, she’s captured (being mistaken as an English lady) and becomes involved in a smoking hot sexual relationship with Robert MacKenzie, a Scottish clansman. When circumstances keep Tally from returning to the agency, her ex-lover and fellow vampire traveler, Christian Lee Hamilton, jumps back in time to help bring her home. Plans quickly change and we soon get the pleasure of enjoying Tally, Rob, and Christian’s sizzling relationship taking place in the past.

Intertwined in the Tally, Rob, Christian story line is a cast of supporting characters that are just as intriguing. While our threesome is back in Scotland, there is a lot going on back in the future at the Agency. While reading the book you wonder if you are simply being set up for future books in the series or if there is more going on. Twists and turns throughout the book keep you guessing until the very end when everything gets wrapped up neatly. Even without a cliffhanger, I can’t wait for this series to continue. There are so many different ways that Tracy Cooper-Posey could take this storyline and if history truly does repeat itself, I’m positive she won’t disappoint.


From Amazon.com [1]

In the early 23rd Century, vampires learned how to travel back in time, and created a time-tsunami that threatened life as we know it, until they corrected their mistake. They created the Chronometric Conservation Agency, which is tasked with preserving history and therefore protecting humanity’s future. The Touring arm of the Agency offers trips back into the real past, with vampire guides, called travelers.

When Natalia (Tally) Marta, vampire and traveler, takes her client to visit the siege of Stirling Castle in 1314, she is caught and held hostage for ransom by Robert MacKenzie, a Bruce clansman. Rob finds himself drawn to the willful, stubborn and very different English lady he has captured and the relationship becomes an intimate, highly-charged sexual pairing. Swiftly, Tally and Rob realize their bond is more than sexual, that the emotions stirring their hearts are true.

Christian Lee Hamilton, vampire, one of the last true southern gentlemen, and Tally’s ex-lover, knows the 1314 time marker enough to jump back and help Tally return home. His arrival at Bannockburn adds complications, for Christian finds himself drawn to Rob MacKenzie as much as Tally is. But neither of them can stay in the past forever. To do so means certain death.
