Publisher's Summary

A captivating Regency historical romance.
Terrified by strange noises in the night, Rebecca Linwood, the headstrong owner of an Egyptian museum, believes she is suffering from an ancient curse. Out of desperation, she seeks the help of the only man with the knowledge to reverse the evil incantation, a man whose cold heart and sinful gaze pose such an enticing contradiction.
As a scholar of Egyptology and a man consumed by the pain of the past, the enigmatic Gabriel Stone shuns polite society, choosing to bury himself in his books. When a flame-haired temptress pesters him with tales of a curse, his first instinct is to flee. However, his sense of obligation proves to be a dangerous thing and the potent lure of desire too difficult to resist.
This Regency romance novel contains descriptive love scenes.

A lovely, enjoyable series

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes, anyone who enjoys regency mystery romance will surely love this.


What was one of the most memorable moments of A Curse of the Heart?

I loved the opening scenes where Rebecca is demanding to see Gabriel and practically camps outside his doorstep. The banter and snide comments they made to each other was quite entertaining. Their initial dislike of one another was thankfully short lived and not drawn out unnecessarily. I'm looking forward to reading the next book in the series.


Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes and I did! as I spent the entire day clearing out my cluttered study. It was a welcome distraction.

A little dark with a lot of HEA

I love Adele Clee's female protagonists. She writes of an era where women were more subservient, but Adele unapologetically makes her characters more. More different, more tempered by the trials of life despite their young age, more flawed and yet infinitely stronger. That is also true for the male protagonist, who meet the expectations of sweeping in and saving the woman from time to time. But, more importantly, she saves him right back.

Gabriel and Rebecca's interests are quite similar. You would think that they would connect because of their love for Egyptian antiquities but that isn't quite the case. Their connection is much less superficial. They find they can relate to each other because of their inability to move forward from the grips of the past and therefore heal. This story isn't just a historical romance, it is a story of healing.

This books features characters first encountered in To Save A Sinner, but is a stand-alone HEA book.

This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.
