Cursed by Lucy Leroux. A Spellbound Regency Novel. Part of Secret Worlds Box Set. My Review.



Isobel Sterling is a governess with many secrets- including an uncanny ability she´s been hiding her whole life, until the day arrives when she has to use it to save herself from a madman. But first she has to master it .Fast.

Governess Isobel Sterling feels fortunate to have found a safe haven in the Montgomery household. The children are kind and the lord and lady of the house leave her alone. Just when her life seems as good as it can get, mysterious visitors arrive from abroad.

At first Isobel is flattered by the single-minded attention she receives from their handsome young guest, Matteo Garibaldi. But when girls in the village go missing ,Isobel has a terrible suspicion the disappearances are linked to the darkness she can see growing behind Matteo´s eyes. Filled with dread, she tries to avoid his company- until she is locked in with him for the night. 

This is a regency romance with a big difference.  Aldo Garibaldi is an Italian count. He has come to England with his son Matteo and an unwanted passenger. They are hunting for a powerful witch who might be able to rid Matteo of the debilitating illness that is destroying his life. 
Isobel is an over qualified governess who lost everything when her father died. Now she must keep her true self hidden, and always be prepared to run.
When some local young women go missing, Isobel thinks she knows who is responsible.  Will she have time to run,  or will she be next to vanish.?.
This book grabbed me straight away. I read it in one day. I couldn't put it down. It's a monstrously sexy book. ( you will understand that phrase, when you read the book) . It is my first from this author,  but now I will be looking for more.


Lucy Leroux chose love.
Lucy moved to France for a one-year research contract. Six months later she was living with a handsome Frenchman ,and six years later she is happily married to him..and still in France.
When her last employment contract ended Lucy turned to writing. Frustrated by the lack of quality romance erotica she enjoyed reading she set out to create her own. Her stories feature heroines who are smart, brave, and resourceful. She enjoys writing men who are thoughtful and slightly obsessive alpha males.
Her " A Singular Obsession" seriesis a combination of romance erotica and suspense tat feature intertwining characters in their own stand alone novels. Three are completed and an additional four books are planned.
