Union Bound: An Arranged Marriage Witch Romance (The Witches’ Bind Trilogy Book 3)  by M.L. Philpitt

Rating: 4 out of 5.


I know my role. Be the witch Mom needs me to be, the leader the coven demands me to be, and the wife I have to be. My future is merely a means to ensure the coven remains the most powerful of our kind. So, I say the vows, complete the union, and marry the witch pre-chosen for me. Wanting nothing to do with him, I strike a deal to ensure my independence. My plan was concrete until that first kiss. I didn’t count on wanting him, let alone loving him. A love he’ll never return, and I must accept the fact before I’m gone forever.


A man needs but one goal in his life, and for me, it’s the acquisition of power. Finally, after the union ceremony I’ve been chasing, I have the magic of many, and with it, a wife I don’t want. Thankfully, she feels the same about me, removing the necessity of a typical marriage between us. But temptation is too compelling, and when one kiss turns into one night and one night turns into multiple, Adalyn is all I come to think about. She’s all I see. All I want. Until fate changes. Soon she’ll be gone and I’m forced to decide which matters more: magic or Adalyn.

My Review

I love the playlist at the beginning of this book. This is the third book in the Witches Bind Trilogy. This book starts with Sybil and Jasper burying his parents and cementing her want to raise a strong witch generation of pure blood. 

We do jump points of view from past to present and to Mary. You may remember her as the meddling witch the goddess uses to show the way from the other stories. Oh, interesting, the last couple decides the outcome. Jasper is okay with an arranged marriage to strengthen the coven and the magic. Still, he is a heartless, self-serving warlock. He goes back to his thoughts on the last book with his cousin Carina, Ryder, and the wolf pack. 

Adalyn is a Fortuna witch. She is also a college student living her young, carefree life at least while she can until she takes over the coven and acquires the impending arranged marriage. Wow, this book gets steamy so descriptive as well. I’m surprised they go thru with the moon goddess plans. 

Jasper is a bit hard-hearted, and I really hope he is whipped by the end of the book. However, his grandmothers’ deceptions and her mother’s coercion are crazy to go up against, and I wonder how it will come into play. Adalyn us a pure outlook but is a little immature and has some growing up to do. I like Jaspers’ moves to unite and wonder how all that will work out. Will the goals be met? Will the characters let their emotions get involved, and what will it mean? 

What that can’t be right. How can that be the goddess’s plan? I mean, after everything and him finally becoming more, how could it be that twisted? This story gets surprising just as I thought they would get the happily ever after; instead, the author baffles us with the last-minute revelation. 

The goddess herself reveals what went wrong and why. But all the same, just wow! I can’t believe what happens. How will this extreme action play out? I love that Jasper’s heart thawed finally to the Adalyn. But what now? Mary sums up the series nicely with her reminiscing back. Omg, I can’t believe how this book ends. I’m happy we got a final conclusion for every couple they dabbled into their lives and changed them. I love that Jasper finally got his happily ever after and was a changed man. 

I can’t believe this is the end of this amazing series. This book has me hooked so many questions and so many answers. I still can’t believe the outcome of all that prophecy and playing with people’s futures. I love how the author interwove the entire series, leading from one book to the next and deeply interconnecting her characters. This was one heck of a paranormal romance filled with magic and love eventually, and wow, was it steamy. What they lacked in feelings, they made up for in intimacy. I enjoyed every set of characters this author envisioned and how they each complimented each other so well. I can’t wait to read other books by this author. 

This is the last book in The Witches Bind Trilogy you can find the entire trilogy on Amazon which includes Cure Bound, Moon Bound, and this last book Union Bound. The Witches Bind Trilogy has also been reviewed and is complete.

If you would like to read Union Bound I highly recommend you start at the beginning of this series to fully understand the plan that takes place. You can find Union Bound by M.L. Philpitt on Amazon. As an Amazon Associate, I earn on qualifying purchases.
