A Cursed Embraced is non-stop action, nail biting, gut wrenching, heart-breakingly awesome! Ms. Robson had gone above and beyond my expectations and impressed me yet again with her the wits and skill in keeping me at the edge of my seat.
Lake Tahoe, again is not a safe place to be in. There have been murders and missing persons. Of course Celia and her sisters are yet again in the midst of chaos. I have to tell you that this experience gets really personal. The Weird sisters really take a beating emotionally, physically and none of them will get out of this unscathed.
Celia is as strong as ever not only emotionally but magically. She and her inner tigress have evolved quite a bit in their strength. I have loved her from the beginning of this series and my love for her is even stronger after reading this book. I have not seen her make a wrong or stupid decision yet. I do consider her as one of the top kickass heroines I’ve read about. Unlike the hero, Aric, a local shifter who is also royalty (royal pain in my ass) and a protector of humanity doesn’t believe it as much. Well, I’m not quite sure what it is, but Aric has this alpha male, very protective vibe going on. He is way over protective over Celia but at the end of each day, he’s the one Celia ends up protecting. I’m sorry, but sometimes he can be so cute and sexy but he can be as blind as a bat. I wish he can just see Celia for what a kick ass chick she really is. Now, Misha, a sexy vamp also at the top of the food chain has the hots for Ceel. Here’s a man who knows how to handle a heroine who is ultimately strong. He accepts Celia for every part of her being. Unfortunately, I’m not quite sure where this love triangle will take them but I assure you this particular book has heart break written all over it.
As you know that this series is of the Urban Fantasy genre and UFs are known for their cliff hangers. Well, A Cursed Embrace does not leave you so much with a cliff hanger but Celia will end a chapter of her life and begin a new one. It does end with you questioning the author though. Questions like: Ms. Robson, what have you done? Where are you going with this? Who will Celia end up with? And Who is Ms. Mancuso? Okay the last question is a bit silly but this old hag has to be someone important in disguise of an annoying old neighbor. She just cracks me up.
Along with Ms. Mancuso, the secondary characters make this series awesome. Celia’s sisters are a riot. Their different characteristics, foul mouths and continued banters is just so addicting you’ll want to keep reading just to find out what comment comes out of their mouths next. They also have grown physically, emotionally and magically. But what amazes me is their continual support for each other. You will feel their triumphs and heart breaks. Yup, the heartbreaks are quite a doozy. Aric’s crew, the shifters, of course is just as great and they were in this book quite a bit. I’m not complaining one bit but I do wish that Misha and his crew had the same page time. Ms. Robson ended this book as if we might get more of them (crossing fingers) in Cursed by Moon. A down side to reading an ARC is that you have to wait longer than everyone else. This book left me heartbroken that waiting for the next book is going to be a b*tch, but I will pay my dues. Ms. Robson’s work is worth the wait.

I coblog and review here at Under the Covers and occasionally review for Hot Listens.I love to read PNR, UF, Contemporary, New Adult, and Romantic Suspense. Occasionally, I will venture to Erotica, BDSM reads and rarely Historical Romance. There are some sub-genres that I don’t always enjoy, but I’m open to stepping out of my comfort zone.For the most part, as long as there’s a hint of romance, I’m pretty much in.
