Book Description

September 24, 2013
Can the magic of desire defeat the powers of darkness?Forced by her half brother to use her dark gift of necromancy for profit, lovely Callista Hawthorne is determined to flee to her one chance for safety, her aunt in Scotland. With no hope of success unless she finds help on the long road north, she offers cursed shapechanger David St. Leger an irresistible bargain.

David—one of the mysterious Imnada—stalks the night streets of Regency London as a large black wolf. Renounced by his own kind, he spends his desperate rage on thieves and murderers. While Callista’s proposal will allow him to escape the terrible enchantment binding him, agreeing to her terms will force him into the treacherous world of the half-Fey Other, his clan’s ancient foes.

Drawn together by danger, David and Callista find passion in each other’s arms. But can they forswear the centuries of enmity separating their two races, and find a love they dare not even imagine?

I was given a copy by Netgalley for an honest review.

Shadow’s Cursehas a very well-developed story line and characters, with a very fast-paced, and action packed story. David St. Ledger is a shape-shifter and is cursed. He must drink a special elixir to stay alive. He meets Callista who is being forced into a marriage with a man who only wants her talent. She tries to run away, but is captured in an alley, and is rescued by David in the form of a wolf.  They team up together to find a cure for David, and he helps her to freedom to Scotland. This is a great combination of regency and paranormal, an I give it 4/5 stars.
