What is it about?
(Blurb from GoodReads)
A cut-throat competition.
A romance to die for.
Danielle Parker’s life was a dream. Until it became a living nightmare.
Ripped of her memories of how she was kidnapped from her family, Danielle is whisked away to the mystical Crescent Cape—a kingdom ruled by vampires, where she is to live out her human life as a blood slave.
She’s not going down without a fight.
But her plans are thwarted when she’s selected to compete for the prince’s heart.
The winner will be turned into a vampire and taken as his bride. And the losers’ blood will be fed to the princess-to-be to complete her transition.
As much as she’s disgusted by the idea of the competition, and as dangerous as Prince Aiden is, she can’t deny her attraction to him—or to his troubled brother, Julian.
Will she be able to resist the brothers’ charms? Or will she find herself pulled into the dangerous world of the vampires of Crescent Cape?
Thoughts on Curses and Crowns
First up, if you like love triangles, then this is for you. I don’t, I hate them – and this one has one, at least in book 1. Mayhap things are resolved better later, but it annoyed me. That said, some people love the angst and twist they deliver, and justifiably so.
This one, a first person, multiple POV PNR, features a vampire prince and his older, adopted werewolf brother falling for the same human… a human who has no choice but to play a game she was thrust into. It’s a bit fun, very hectic, and a touch too fast emotionally speaking.
First Person, Multiple POV
M/F… I think? ugh

My Final Verdict on Curses and Crowns
Emotionally fast with little build up before climax, this book left me a bit disappointed, though judging by the reviews previous to mine, it picks up in the later books. Free on Kindle Unlimited.
