Book Description

A man with a mission...

Devin O'Rourke is drawn to Isabel the moment he sees her ghostly image in a picture. While searching for proof of her existence, Devin soon finds himself pulled back in time.

A woman in need of saving...

Eighteenth century, Isabel Savol, is on the run. Good fortune finds her sheltered and managing the construction of a house. When a handsome Irishman claiming to be from the future appears on her Georgian's worksite one day, everything she thought she understood about reality vanishes.

Smoldering desire ignites between Devin and Isabel as they struggle to stay one step ahead of the time-warping house caught in Calum's Curse and the werewolf determined to finish the legacy it began.

This novel contains very strong sexual content and is recommended for a mature audience. 
Look for more books from the Calum's Curse Series including The Victorian Lure (Calum's Curse: Book One) and The Tudor Revival (Calum's Curse: Book Three). Also available in the Calum's Curse Series Boxed Set (Books 1-3).

Editorial Reviews

From the Inside Flap

"I'll get answers out of you eventually, Isabel."

Lord, he was persistent. Give him some hope then continue to whittle away. "I am quite sure you will but not this eve." She gracefully smoothed her skirts, lowered her voice--hid behind her lashes. "I'll not ask again. Share with me, Devin. I would really like to know what disturbs you so."

Devin's low chuckle warmed her insides. "You think to get answers from me by flirting? Good luck, lass. I invented that method."

Isabel's eyes flew to his. Insolence! She almost faltered at the devilish twinkle in his gaze, the languid way his come-hither eyes roamed her face. Indeed, he did flirt well. She squelched the lop-sided grin she felt beginning to erupt. "I see no reason for your secrecy." Isabel again leaned close and whispered in her best co-conspirator tone, "Then you really are a spy."

His thick-lashed eyes fell to her lips and he leaned closer as well. "In my own way, that is exactly what I am."

Now she was getting somewhere. "Ah, I knew it."

"Did you?" His gaze slowly slid down her neck and she'd swear his finger grazed the soft skin. Goose pimples rose on her flesh.

"Yes, I did." She continued to follow his gaze, could almost feel how he saw her...feminine...enticing. "It makes perfect sense."

"Aye." Devin's gaze fell to her cleavage. "You found me out."

A deep inhale, then he exhaled slowly, his hot breath flaming across her chest. Searing warmth flooded below. Isabel inhaled sharply. His eyes met hers, knowing. How did he do that? What exactly had he done without moving an inch?

"What did I find out?" she murmured, her mind swimming in pleasure, relaxed, not nearly as sharp as it had been moments before.

A ravishing grin crinkled the corners of his eyes, made enticing sweeps of his dark eyelashes. "That I'm not quite who I seem to be."

5.0 out of 5 stars One Hot Ghost Story!!! March 11, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
Ms. Purington really outdid herself with this book! Talk about original! I've never read another book like this one! I picked this book up because I love ghost stories and this one is about a ghost caught in a time warp, haunted by....well, I won't spoil it for yeah, you heard me right...this is a book about a haunted ghost! And the romance is super sizzling! One of the love scenes is so hot, I had read it again and again. This author really knows how to mingle the light with the dark. What a skillful writer who really knows how to crank up the suspense and heat so high, she got my heart a thumping! Wish I could give it ten stars but five was as high as Amazon goes. If you like spooky and sexy and good vs. evil, you'll want to grab this book before the author realizes how dang good it is and raises the price.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great story October 7, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
I thought this second book in the series was just as good as the first. I enjoyed getting to run into these characters again and to meet Isabel. This story does not take place immediately following The Victorian Lure. Some time has passed and we find out how the three are adjusting to their new abilities.

This story is different, this time it starts out as more of a ghost story/haunted house tale. And it is really well done and easy to follow. We find out more about the curse they are under and more about the family history and what Calum was really like before he was corrupted by power.

I loved getting Devin's story, he was one of my favorites in the prior book. And Isabel is great new character. She is well suited to handle the events and trials of getting sucked into the circumstances of Calum's curse with the rest.

If you read and enjoyed the first book, dont miss out of this one. If you havent read this first, you can still pick this up and not be lost. The only thing missing is some of the character history and a couple of references. It is its own story completely, beginning, middle and end.

Pick this up for a great read with interesting characters and a great story with a side effect of the paranormal - ghosts, haunted houses, werewolves and curses. It has it all.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Ghostly Tangle September 18, 2012
By Shelley
Format:Kindle Edition
This is book two in Ms. Purington's Calum's Curse series, and I think this is a series that is best read in order to gain full enjoyment.

Devin O'Rourke is the one of the descendants of Calum, and he has inherited wizard powers that thrust him into an adventure that will test him. Isabel is his feminine match and she is a strong woman from time's past.

As with the first book in the series, The Georgian Embrace is a wild, twisty ride for both the characters and the reader. Devin and Isabel time travel from the past to the future and back while they seek to escape the enemy set on destroying them.

Devin is a fun-loving man who loves to cook, but he changes and becomes more serious as he faces the werewolf enemy. Isobel is a complex character. Sometimes she's a ghost and at other times she's a flesh and blood woman. Both keep secrets from each other in the hope of keeping the other safe. Full trust takes time, but gradually the complex layers are peeled back and the exciting conclusion reached.

The Georgian Embrace is another excellent instalment in Ms. Purington's Calum's Curse series.
