Review - 5 Stars
I am a big fan of historical fiction. This book gave me that and some of the paranormal. It was awesome. It took me a bit to get into the book, but once I got there, I was hooked. This book is about a young woman who is just getting into society and who meets a not so savory character. This man just happens to be cursed as well. Melissa, is a very likeable character because she is not the norm. She isn't into all the rules that young ladies were made to follow. She is very unique in her own right. This book was written well. It was full of intrigue, romance, and mystery. The ending leaves you on such a cliffhanger. I cant wait to read more. I would definitely recommend this book to romance readers and paranormal readers alike. While I have never been big on paranormal, this book was fascinating.
