What is it about?
(Blurb from GoodReads)
What do sexy fae lords, a vampire assassin, and a mysterious castle have in common?
Yeah no, I did not plan this.
When my bestie and I opened a fabulous bakery, I planned to live a long life shoving pumpkin muffins into my face hole and working them off during my self-defense class.
But when a castle full of ridiculously gorgeous immortals showed up on the ley line running through my small town outside Nashville, my life changed.
A lot. Like a lot, a lot.
Because of an ancient curse, the immortals can’t leave the castle without turning to ash. But when the most powerful fae lord uses his seductive power to lure me close, to psychically feed on my aura, he successfully steps out of the castle for the first time.
Now the fae want all of my supposedly special blood to break the curse. Until I can somehow shove the immortals back into whatever magical hole they crawled out of, my life is forfeit.
I have a plan. But said plan didn’t account for the insane feelings I’m starting to have for the alpha of the group…
Thoughts on Fae Curse
I have mixed feelings about this book. I love the FMC, her level of snark and attitude is divine, bleeding through with just the right amount of humor. However, as the situation she finds herself in reveals itself, I found the world itself a little flat. It’s…. awkward? She reacts appropriately, or so I think, but they don’t… and events progress in an oddly stilted manner.
- Great FMC.
- Well edited.
- Interesting concept.
- Too many questions!! How does the vamp know the other two are mates? That’s just one…
- The sex scene was droll and misplaced…. why then? I get the emotions, but it just came out of left field considering the circumstance.
First Person, Single POV
Right now? M/F (unsure if this will be a RH or not)

My Final Verdict on Fae Curse
This book gets off to a slightly rough start, but the series looks promising and the base is intriguing. Free on Kindle Unlimited.
