My Romance Curse is funny, light, and entertaining, proving that she can really write anything!”
~ Under the Covers

In My Romance Curse, Cari Silverwood, writing as Wren Tirrell, takes on the completely new genre of romantic comedy.  It’s set in sunny, beachy Australia, where Amy has quite the dilemma.  Her boyfriends keep dying on her.  She’s now sure that she’s stuck with the curse forever.  When a sexy Viking-esque scientist name Lukas rescues her bike, Marge, from a spill in the ocean, the chemistry is undeniable.  His pursuit is relentless.  He doesn’t believe in curses and is set to prove her wrong.

I must hand it to Cari Silverwood.  While dark erotica is what she’s known for, she went out on a limb here and gave us something very unique.  I can’t say that I’ve read a romance set in Australia and I loved the authenticity of the writing and the small bits of local lingo interspersed.  I also liked the beachy atmosphere since I’m stuck in the dead of winter.  Cari Silverwood always has a quirkiness to her writing and that shines through here as well.  Think a zombie movie production, hysterical dialog and antics, and some things I won’t even mention, to avoid a spoiler.  My first thought upon finishing was that it’s perfectly suited to be adapted to film, because it reads just like the classic romantic comedies we would see on screen.  If you love those, this would be a perfect story to pick up.  It has the perfect setting, the perfect handsome and flirty lead, and the somewhat clumsy, but adorable object of his affection in Amy.  With a shocker or two and some completely unpredictable twists.  While I will always see Cari as a dark erotica writer, none of her works there would be suitable for film adaptation (yikes!).  My Romance Curse is funny, light, and entertaining, proving that she can really write anything!




About Cari Silverwood

Cari Silverwood is a New York Times and USA Today bestselling writer of kinky darkness or sometimes of dark kinkiness, depending on her moods and the amount of time she's spent staring into the night. She has an ornery nature as well as a lethal curiosity that makes her want to upend plots and see what falls out when you shake them. When others are writing bad men doing bad things, you may find her writing good men who accidentally on purpose fall into the abyss and come out with their morals twisted in knots.
This might be because she comes from the land down under, Australia, or it could be her excessive consumption of wine.

Her favorite hobby is convincing people she has a basement...though she really doesn’t. Promise.
If it existed it would be a terrifying place where you would find all the dangerous things that you never knew you craved.

I’m a 30-something medical professional by day and obsessive Crossfitter by night who’s been in love with the written word since I can remember.And that means that I read every Nancy Drew and Nancy Drew Files until I snuck Stephen King’s It from my father’s bookshelf at age 10.I was never the same… I read voraciously for years, until academic pursuits derailed me, but re-entered the fray 8 years ago when a certain teen paranormal series caught my attention.The passion back, I haven’t stopped since.When I’m not working, working out, or traipsing around for my teenage son’s hectic activity schedule, you can find me with Kindle in hand, often until the wee hours of the night.

I’m well known to be a genre hopper, who has very few hard limits.My first real romance series was J.R. Ward’s Black Dagger Brotherhood and she still rocks my paranormal world, along with Karen Moning’s Fever series and Joey Hill’s Vampire Queen series.That being said, you’ll often see me reading erotic romance with a BDSM focus.I’m never afraid of dark and dubious reads a la Joey Hill, Tiffany Reisz and Cari Silverwood.When genre fatigue sets in, a witty historical romance never fails to satisfy me, and Lisa Kleypasand Sarah MacLeanare my auto-buys.My favorite series of all time is Diana Gabaldon’s Outlader saga, and I will fight for Jamie Fraser to the death ;). Much to my fellow romance readers’ surprise, I also cleanse my palate with popular contemporary reads.Romantic suspense.LGBT.Western.If the writing is on, I’ll dig in.
