Released from Ottevar Asylum after eight hard years, Lady Emmeline returns to Nachtholm Manor to reclaim her birthright. But she has a battle on her hands—Rainart Eckhard refuses to give up his position as lord of manor, and whilst his cold attitude enrages Emmeline, his smouldering kisses leave her weak at the knees.
Who is this dangerous, enticing stranger, and what secrets does he hide? Caught in a web of desire, curses, and self-doubt, Emmeline is not only fighting Rainart for Nachtholm Manor, but for her own heart as well.
Wow! Fans of Gothic and Paranormal Romance hold on to your seats… This is one hell of a quick read you can’t miss.
With only 50 pages this is a fast read that you can easily read in two hours but Shadow Cursed is absolutely the right length and worth your time! You have plenty of time to get a good world building and to fall in love with the characters. Emmaline’s was for me a small strong heroine in this book with manny hidden layers that I would like to read more about later! Maybe in a next book? But also Rainart Eckhard’s was intriguing and together they make a great couple.
And then it al comes to getter with of course the hot love scenes! Not to plastic but hot enough to make this our Special Hot Pick for this week! Overall, Shadow Cursed is a wonderful short story that will keep lovers adult paranormal, historical romance hooked to the very last page.
