Hello out there in reader land!!!!
Today I am reviewing a very intriguing book called "The Scarletti Curse" by Christine Feehan. This is a little like "Beauty and the Beast", but not. There are ghosts, magic, twists and turns, adventures, and of course love. This is such a good book that I had a hard time putting it down.
Here is the summary taken from Goodreads.....
Strange, twisted carvings and hideous gargoyles adorned the palazzo of the great Scarletti family. But a still more fearful secret lurked within its storm-tossed turrets. For every bride who entered its forbidding walls was doomed to leave in a casket.
Mystical and unfettered, Nicoletta had no terror of ancient curses and no fear of marriage...until she looked into the dark, mesmerizing eyes of Don Scarletti. She had sworn no man would command her, had thought her gift of healing set her apart, but his was the right to choose a bride from among his people. And he had chosen her.
Compelled by duty, drawn by desire, she gave her body into his keeping, and prayed the powerful, tormented don would be her heart's destiny, and not her soul's demise."
All Nicoletta wants to be is free to be who she was born to be without being accused of being a witch. She is a strong willed character and you, as a reader, will want to be more like her and I wished I could do the things she did. I don't want to add anymore to the summary, because if you don't think it seems interesting from the summary as I did, then you probably aren't going to read it and you will be missing out. The story is set in Italy and the author even throws in some Italian words, which I found very cool and it made me want to learn a new language.
The twists and turns will have you guessing until the last chapter and it is a ending that you never saw coming. There is no hint of how this amazing story is going to end and that is what made me love this book even more. I hope yall give it a chance, because you won't be disappointed.
Till next time,
Rating: 5/5 beautiful Italian sea sides.....
