Title: The Shadowheart Curse
Author: Karilyn Bentley
Genre: Paranormal Romance
Escaping New York after a client’s untimely death, medium Adrianna Sinclair flees to her family property in Italy. All she wants is to avoid ghosts, but an attractive one tempts her in ways she never knew possible.
Luca Fausto has been trapped on the Romani property for over a century for a crime he didn’t commit. Adrianna may be the answer to breaking the curse that keeps him bound.
Standing in their way is a demonic spirit’s plan for revenge. Will they prevail or will Luca be cursed to the shadows forever?
Adrianna Sinclair is a medium but after the scandal and death of one of her clients, she escapes New York for the ancestral property in Italy. She wants to hang up her psychic shingle and just be left alone. But two spirits won’t let her. One’s a demonic spirit who wants her gone while the other intrigues her. Luca is a gentleman in every sense of the word and when he takes her to one of his brother’s otherworldly parties, Luca shifts from an apparition to someone she can wrap her arms around. The more she’s around Luca, the more she falls for him. Can you truly fall for a ghost? In Adrianna’s case, it may be the key to solving Luca’s curse. But when she finds out the truth, will she abandon him or will she save his life?
The Shadowheart Curse is a familiar concept in paranormal romance but Karilyn Bentley puts a new twist on it. Filled with paranormal, mysterious and romantic elements, it captured my heart from the very first page. The descriptive narration swept me away to Italy and as I read, I experienced everything Adrianna saw, smelled and tasted. The supernatural elements were spot-on and very realistic. The danger the couple found themselves in ratcheted up my pulse and the ending was a complete surprise. It reads like a movie, which is great because it is turning into one (go to the author’s website for more details on that). Highly entertaining paranormal romance and one I can’t recommend enough!
