She’s going to go insane. For most of her Lady Claire Deering has known this will be her fate; after all her Mom and her aunt suffered, and died from, this curse. A curse put on the family by a spiteful witch long before she was born. Knowing her fate Claire has determined she will remain a spinster, never falling in love. If only she wasn’t already in love with her best friend.
Theodore Lockwood’s, Earl of Ashbrooke, friends encourage him to go after the woman he has loved since childhood. When the reading of her great-uncle’s will, who also happens to be related to one of his closest friends, Theodore takes the opportunity to tag along, conquer some fears and convince the lady he loves that together they can make things work.
Claire’s conviction that she will suffer the curse and her desire to protect the man she loves to her hope and desperation that maybe things can turn out differently are very well written. Theodore’s skepticism to his determination to make things work and his willingness to do whatever it takes to make Claire had me falling in love with him. Toss in the curse, a spell breaking ritual, and a huge surprise and you have an excellent read by Erica Monroe.
Possess by the Stranger by Jerrica Knight-Catania
The very last place Chadwick Kendall wants to be is a haunted castle at a will reading for a friend of his father’s. He’d much rather be by his father’s side as he lay dying; the man who has been there for him and loved him enough for a father and mother. Torn between staying with his father or following his dying wish Chad makes his way to Castle Keyvnor to what may be the best thing that happens to him when he sees the image of a red-headed angel.
Lady Samantha Priske can’t wait to explore what’s reported to be a haunted castle, if only she can escape her mother’s harping. If her mother is not complaining about one thing it’s another – her sister’s belief that she’s sees ghosts, Samantha’s red hair, her lack of conducting herself properly, etc. When she’s finally able to slip away from the latest tirade she makes her way to the turrets to view the beauty of the landscape below; a landscape that includes the sight of a man that makes her heart race more than the eerie sounds from close by.
A first encounter that has Samantha literally falling to each meeting thereafter is filled with longing and despair (as Samantha knows her parents will never approve). Add in a meddlesome little brother, a determined hero, a heroine who follows her heart and a surprise and you have another excellent story by the talented Jerrica Knight-Catania.
The Sweetest Curse by Renee Bernard
Miss Elethea Fairfax has lived her entire life caught between being the daughter and helper of the local doctor and the daughter/granddaughter of a “witch” with healing properties of her own. No matter the situation she allows her father to take all the credit when it comes to healing; something that recently hasn’t felt right; especially when the new heir presumptive falls ill practically at her feet. Determined to do all she can to save his life she does her best to not fall in love; after all, he’s from a different class and can never be hers. Not to mention his family suffers from a curse because of a witch and blame has be laid at her grandmother’s coven. Heaven help her if he or his family ever finds out she is the one who tended him and he dies. And if he survives can she forsake him to break the family’s curse?
The Mad Countess, Erica Monroe - 5 stars (I would give it more if I could). This was the best novella so far in this series! I LOVED it! Claire and Teddy have been the best of friends for years and each loves the other - but they don't share their feelings for each other for very different reasons. Claire is cursed and is certain she will eventually go mad like her mother and her aunt. She loves Teddy with all that she is, but she will not condemn him to life with a mad wife. Teddy has loved Claire for as long as he can remember and she is the only woman he would even consider spending his life with, but fear of rejection and the loss of her friendship have kept him quiet - until now. Teddy is ready to put his fears behind him and win the woman he loves - all he has to do is convince Claire that there is no curse - or is there?
Awesome story, loved Claire and Teddy. Teddy is sigh worthy - for so many reasons but the biggest is because he waited for Claire - she was his first everything and probably his last as well!! I swear this going on my very short list of books to read again!!
Possessed by the Baron, Jerrica Knight-Catania - 3.5 stars. I liked Chadwick aka Chad, but I found Samantha to be a bit stupid. She likes him, but she can't marry him because he is a commoner and her parents won't approve?! I still don't know why she is convinced he is a commoner - just because he is a mere mister? That makes zero sense. And why didn't she ask about him instead of just assuming or better yet ask him? She finally decides to defy her parents and gives her heart,soul and body to him, even before she finds out the truth about him. But by then it was too little, too late for me.
The Sweetest Curse, Renee Bernard - 2.5/3 stars. This was the odd duck in the series. It was a strange mix of first person and third person narrative and was a tad hard to follow. Elethea and Blade are both likable enough - but I didn't feel the connection and there was zero steam in this novella. The story had potential, but just didn't have enough depth to make it believable.
Erica Monroe's novella alone was worth the purchase price of the book ten times over and was the highlight of this entire series collection.
