Curse of Seduction is the first book in the Dark Princes of Purgatory by C.R Robertson. You know when you read a book from a new (to you) author and only a few chapters in you realise that you will be stalking, I mean buying and reading everything they have ever written, including their grocery list if you could get your hands on it- well C.R Robertson is one of those authors! I can already tell that this is the beginning of a long addiction, one that I am oh so happy to feed!
But, to be honest, I wasn’t entirely sure if I would love this book going in- I thought it would be Ok, but may be lacking in depth, story, and substance- by concentrating more on the ‘erotic’ component. But, colour me wrong!! This story isn’t just incredibly sexy- it has a fantastic storyline and superb characters as well. This is a masterfully crafted paranormal romance, with a complex and multi-layered storyline. There is a lot going on in it, including having the story told from several perspectives- but C.R Robertson deftly weaves it all into a delectably delicious and absolutely fascinating read.
I was in bed when I started the story, in need of a good night sleep. I thought I would just read a chapter or two to get a ‘feel’ of the book, before going to sleep. Ha!!!! I was hooked from the very first page and was still reading a few hours later. By that time there was only a few chapters left in the book- so there was no chance of me putting it down before I had read every last word!!! Needless to say, I didn’t get my good night sleep- but I did discover a fantastic story and a new (to me) author to put on my “must read” list.
So if you love a great paranormal romance- with a wonderful story, interesting and endearing characters (except for the baddy of course), some danger, and adventure- all set in a cleverly crafted ‘world’ full of any number of fantasy creatures (from dragons, to witches, vampires, elves, Lycans and more)…… then what are you waiting for? Get your one-click on and grab yourself a copy to explore, because I am sure your going to love it just as much as I have!!
Now on to my C.R Robertson binge!
Thank you, C.R Robertson. Looking forward to more time between your pages!
