Review Shadow Cursed by Naomi Clark

Title: Shadow Cursed
Author: Naomi Clark
Source: Request
Genre: Mystery/Paranormal Romance
Length: Novella

Released from Ottevar Asylum after eight hard years, Lady Emmeline returns to Nachtholm Manor to reclaim her birthright. But she has a battle on her hands—Rainart Eckhard refuses to give up his position as lord of manor, and whilst his cold attitude enrages Emmeline, his smouldering kisses leave her weak at the knees.

Who is this dangerous, enticing stranger, and what secrets does he hide? Caught in a web of desire, curses, and self-doubt, Emmeline is not only fighting Rainart for Nachtholm Manor, but for her own heart as well.

Fans of Gothic romance will rejoice with this quick read.

I'm not usually a fan of mystery.  It's not because I don't like it, it's that I'm just too curious for my own good. Yes, I'm that person that will read the last chapter of a book so I don't have to bite my nails the whole time. I'm bad, I know. 

Shadow Cursed was absolutely the right length for my curious heart.  I fell in love with the characters quickly and was fascinated with unraveling their quirks. Rainart Eckhard's was so delightfully enigmatic. And Emmaline's fractured adolescence gave her character many layers.

The story does have a happily ever after, but is very open for a sequel to make it an even MORE happily ever after.  I look forward to reading Emmaline and Rainart's adventure continue

Overall, Shadow Cursed was a wonderful short story that will keep lovers of mystery, paranormal, and romance genres engaged to the last page.
