This book was a lovely surprise. The H is under a curse that splits him into two halves every night - his good and devilish sides. Both of them fall for the h and the story is about how the h helps the H get over the curse. Its set in Romania/Transylvania and the story was very atmospheric with great writing. The spanking/DD part was sexy and an organic part of the h/H's equation; all the supporting characters were great as well.

In short I loved this book, it was a truly orginal romance and was

This one took me quite a while to get into, its a strange but also intriguing tale extremely unique in its individuality, it was also a rather serious story.
Despite the subject matter involved, this does also have a much deeper message to impart to its readers.
The curse itself heavily delves into acceptance in all its forms, acknowledging and also embracing all parts of the whole.
Accepting without reservation the good and the bad and then actually realising that there are such shades of grey in

This was a nice little read when I eventually got into the story, but it did take me a little while to get into.

It's a different and intriguing story line, Courtney is a nurse providing care for those terminally ill, she works for an agency and gets contracts given to her, so she has no personal ties or commitments anywhere, no house or relations. She gets asked to go look after an elderly friend of a Baron Marcas Kalnovky, she signs the contract not reading it and not knowing what she has let h

This story had me glued to my kindle from the beginning. The characters are well developed in the storyline is intriguing. Courtney and Marcas have this explosive chemistry from the start. Marcas is cursed into split personalities while Courtney is floundering with the personalities. There is discipline, spankings, love, laugh out loud moments and romance in this gothic story. I can’t wait to read more from this author!!!

This book surprised me a bit. Pleasantly. I did not expect it to cause me to reflect on my on life so much. What you do if you had to face - literally - that aspect of your own character that tends to annoy you, or that you suppress, or that you try to ignore. Would your life be better without that aspect or would it be worse?

Don't worry, there is a lighter romantic side to this book also. It is sweet and serious and funny too!

This story is equal parts romance, fantasy, mysticism, supernatural, and fairy tale. It captures you from the beginning and doesn't let go. The erotic parts are just that - sexy, yes - but only a part of this fascinating tale.
