CLICK TO PURCHASE! Brothers Tristan and Will Northland inherit their grandmother’s Book of Shadows and find out that the source of the dark magic plaguing the Sinclair family for centuries originated with one of their ancestors. Now determined to right the wrong their family centuries ago committed against the Sterling family, Tristan sails the ocean to reverse the curse never expecting to be attracted to Benjamin Sterling, the one man who distrusts the Northland family with a passion. Benjamin Sterling has every reason to not trust the one man who drops in his life unexpectedly. Dealing with being an outcast in his werewolf tribe and the dark curse hanging over him, Ben has no idea his life is about to change as both Tristan and Ben try to remove the curse and end up falling in love.

CURSED was a nice story to read and one I found highly enjoyable. Ms. Aile is a new to me author and one I plan to enjoy in the future as I pursue her backlist titles. The writing was tight, storyline flowed smoothly and the characters were very believable as well as well-rounded.

Meet Tristan Northland, a man who along with his twin brother, Will, inherit their grandmother’s Book of Shadows that tells of a centuries old curse put upon the Sterling Family. Determined to right the wrong of their ancestors, Tristan goes to America and finds more than he imagines when he is face to face with Benjamin Sterling. Ben is not into witches and with his curse, the werewolf tribe he belongs to considers him an outcast. Now when a Northland shows up, he is not interested in anything he has to say. What happens next will shake both men’s worlds and they will find a hope and love that will change them forever. I really enjoyed Tristan, Will and Benjamin. They were very intriguing and the story hinted at more to come once the last page was read which made me eager to check on afterwards. The secondary characters kept the story flowing smoothly and some were very interesting so I am hoping they show up more in Will’s story coming in Betrayed.

CURSED is a well written story of hope, love and doing the right thing with unexpected results. Ms. Aile is a talented storyteller who will capture your imagination and take you to places that will get your blood running hot and characters to fall in love with. If you enjoy a paranormal tale full of wolves, curses, magic and romance, then I highly recommend this one from an author I am definitely going to check out more in the future. CURSED is one story I plan to read again soon.

This is an objective review and not an endorsement of this book.
