Curse of the Lord of Darkness Kindle Edition
by Sherile Reilly
I received a complimentary copy of this book for review purposes and I am leaving a fair and honest review.

What a delightful book! It reminds me of the summers I devoured Victoria Holt's romantic suspense novels! In fact, it seems, Ms. Holt appears twice in this book, or at least her namesake does!

Vicki (Victoria!) is a plucky 1895 girl, who learned at her father's knee after her mother died. She learned how to manage a home and how to

Vicky realized she had to take action to escape her scheming Uncle and keep her brother Davy safe from harm. She flees to a family friend seeking refuge. Little does she know of the secrets of the handsome Alex Winslow, master of the manor. As Vicky eludes her uncle's evil desires she searches for the secrets of Alex's mysterious family and the family curse. This book has everything you want in a good mystery. It is set in a historical era, you will find suspense, danger, mystery, and a romance. ...more

I love reading shifter novels! This one is different than the ones I have read in the past. Instead of embracing the animal that you shift into and loving that part of you, Alex dreaded shifting, he didn’t want to become a beast, and he was desperate to find a cure so the darkness would leave him.

There is nothing I didn’t like about Curse of the Lord of Darkness. I love the time period, the manners, and the language. Victoria is the perfect heroine! She is smart, strong, independent, and she def

Feeling threatened, Vicki sought protection. But she didn’t know that the terrible secret her protector was keeping, was going to influence her life. Liked that I got to know the story behind the curse and how it came to be. There was suspense, drama, danger, secrets and the descriptions and narrations turned out to be interesting, detailed and intriguing with the paranormal touch and the rather sensual passion that added to the emotional charge of the story. I was struck by Alex internal strugg ...more

This is the first time in reading this author and what drew me to this one is the title. I proceeded to then look into it further with realizing it had a combination of things I like to read in a book. The time it is set in is good to escape to sometimes. Then it also has paranormal woven into it thanks to the curse. Add drama running from death you have something that once you begin you can not easily put it down. Alexander and Victoria are the center of this with it reeling you into their dile ...more

This is very intense & emotional. I think both characters have some darkness, she brings light to his and he brings light to hers. She makes an excellent choice when seeking assistance from this hermit. Alex does a great job as her protector, a woman scorned has cursed his family throughout generations and he's accepted his fate. Begin the inquisitive and smart woman she is, Victoria is just as determined to live, deter her greedy relative and break this curse. Along the answer eludes them, it t ...more

I really enjoyed this book a lot. I liked the main characters. I especially loved the fact that the two of them did what they had to do. They were both courageous in different ways. I thought they were a great match and their chemistry melted right off the pages. I love this author's books and will continue to read them. I am sure to enjoy This one over and over again. ...more
