Cursed is having a great weekend!

Yesterday the Jeep Diva posted a 5-star review for Cursed that absolutely made my week - no, month!

In part, the reviewer said: "This book was awesome. It was short but packed a lot in the story.
My favorite part was the costumes and atmosphere described for Carnevale. It really helped bring it alive and made you feel like you were there."

Thanks so much, Jeep Diva! It's always wonderful when a reader loves your story.

Here's just another reason I love Decadent Publishing. When they contract a story, they're in it for the long haul as much as the author. The publisher and editors loved Cursed and wanted to see it do a little better, so they reworked the blurb:

....a cold and lonely existence....

Bruno diCesare lives in the shadows. Alone and hidden from the world, his only joy comes but once a year---at Carnevale. For ten days, he can blend in with the colorful, masked masses without revealing his true nature. But this time, he is faced with fiery temptation.

Carnevale allows Melina Weaver to be someone else--someone sexy, daring, enticing, someone who lives on the edge. It's a far cry from her real life, with long and boring hours spent in a sterile lab. When her fire dancing arouses the curiosity of a dark and compelling stranger, she might have more excitement--and danger--than she ever imagined.

Can Bruno escape his cursed existence? Can he protect her, and can she trust him to save them both?

Ten days. The difference between bliss or desolation, redemption or remaining forever Cursed.

And Cursed is on sale too!

For the next two weeks, you can grab your copy of Cursed from Amazon for only 99 cents! The perfect time to catch up on this series, because Charmed will release the last week in August! Woot! :)
