"...a sexy story about hope, destiny, and undeniable love"
The Valentino men have a tragic legacy. Just like all the
Valentino men before him, Lucas is cursed to find his mate...
only to kill her before his beloved can conceive his
child. Lucas is determined to let the curse die with him,
so he moves to the Appalachian Mountains far away from the
woman that fate has chosen to be his. He would not
willingly doom another generation to bear the burden of the
Valentino curse. And he simply could not allow his
innocent lifemate to be harmed by the savage beast that
lies within him.
But destiny has a way of laying waste to the best of plans
and Lucas certainly never considered the possibility of
Sonja Stone moving to his quiet mountain community. Burned
out from her job as an EMT, Sonja retreats to the mountains
for some rest and relaxation. What she finds is a handsome
man who drives her crazy in more ways than one. There is
just something about Sheriff Valentino that makes her blood
boil; but there is also something about him that makes her
crave his touch.
Lucas is horrified to discover his mate is near and will
soon be in danger. Sonja senses that something is out of
sorts and refuses to leave until she gets some answers.
When Lucas confesses the truth about his lineage and the
dark curse, Sonja is both shocked and relieved. Now that
she has found her soulmate she has no intention of letting
him go. Together they will attempt to break the curse, but
on the night of the Valentine's moon...will Sonja have the
courage to make the ultimate sacrifice for love?
THE SOULMATE'S CURSE is a fast paced and enjoyable story
about lovers coming together despite the bleak outlook of
their future. Marketed as an interracial paranormal
romance, this book focuses on the main couple and their
determination to overcome their obstacle. Race is never
mentioned nor treated as an issue relevant to the story.
The hero's curse seems nearly impossible to overcome even
by paranormal standards and the resolution is a tad
awkward, but overall THE SOULMATE'S CURSE is a sexy and
satisfying story about hope, destiny, and undeniable love.
