A Curse So Dark And Lonely
This book is classified as a Young Adult Novel
Here is a blurb from Amazon: Followed by my review.
It once seemed so easy to Prince Rhen, the heir to Emberfall. Cursed by a powerful enchantress to repeat the autumn of his eighteenth year over and over, he knew he could be saved if a girl fell for him. But that was before he learned that at the end of each autumn, he would turn into a vicious beast hell-bent on destruction. That was before he destroyed his castle, his family, and every last shred of hope.
Nothing has ever been easy for Harper. With her father long gone, her mother dying, and her brother barely holding their family together while constantly underestimating her because of her cerebral palsy, she learned to be tough enough to survive. But when she tries to save someone else on the streets of Washington, DC, she's instead somehow sucked into Rhen's cursed world.
Break the curse, save the kingdom.
A prince? A monster? A curse? Harper doesn't know where she is or what to believe. But as she spends time with Rhen in this enchanted land, she begins to understand what's at stake. And as Rhen realizes Harper is not just another girl to charm, his hope comes flooding back. But powerful forces are standing against Emberfall . . . and it will take more than a broken curse to save Harper, Rhen, and his people from utter ruin.
I could say so much about how awesome this book is but it could never compare to the reader's experience. It reminds me of a modern-day Beauty and the Beast, but with a more exciting more grown-up flair. The heroine is not your typical girl. She has to be strong to survive all she has been through.
This book takes the reader into a fantasy world where magic and castles and royalty live.
A land that holds a curse. A land from where she can't escape. With lots of action and intrigue, this book will keep you interested until the end.
I absolutely loved this story! I was excited to read the next book in the series which is called
A Heart So Fierce and Broken.
I give this book a 5 Star Rating!

Winter In Paradise
This is the first book in the series. If you love a good beach read with some twist and turns to keep you guessing, Winter in Paradise is for you.
Here is what Amazon had to say, Followed by my review of the book.
Join New York Times bestselling author Elin Hilderbrand on the stunning beaches of St. John for the beginning of her thrilling new winter series - Paradise. Winter in Paradise, the first book in the Paradise series, has everything that listeners have come to know and love about an Elin Hilderbrand novel, plus a healthy dose of intrigue.
Irene Steele's idyllic life - house, husband, family - is shattered when she is woken up by a late-night phone call. Her beloved husband has been found dead, but before Irene can process this tragic news, she must confront the perplexing details of her husband's death. He was found on St. John, a tropical island paradise far removed from their suburban life. Leaving the cold winter behind, Irene flies down to the beautiful Caribbean beaches of St. John only to make another shocking discovery: her husband had a secret second family.
As Irene investigates the mysterious circumstances of her husband's death, she is plunged into a web of intrigue and deceit belied by the pristine white sand beaches of St. John.
This exciting first book in the Paradise series will transport listeners to a new beach locale - another world that Elin knows as well as her beloved Nantucket - and have them longing for winter.
I really enjoyed this first book. I love a good beach setting in a book. Since I don't get to travel much, I can at least escape there In my mind.
The Island of St.John sounds like a place I would love to visit.
One thing that intrigued me is the thought of what you would do If you found out your husband had a secret life, with a second family. How would the wife not know? Irene is busy renovating her victorian home and has a parttime job. Her husband's job allows him to travel. How convenient! His boss is being so evasive about all the details surrounding her husband's death so she knows things are not adding up.
This first book was hard to put down. Trying to figure out what is going to happen next kept my interest. The ending leaves you wanting more.
The second book, What happens in Paradise is available now. The third book is set to come out in October 2020.
I am looking forward to the exciting conclusion!
My rating of this book would be 4 out of 5 stars!
