Rating: 3 Cups
Becc Morton loves animals, but she is tired of pampering the pets of the wealthy. So she takes a job working with a scientist who is trying to save the famous Tasmanian Devil.
Jarrod and Jesse Tremain are brothers, as well as were-devil shifters, and the sons of the scientist Becc will be working with. They are both attracted to Becc, but are suspicious due to a prophecy affecting their kind.
The night before Becc is due to leave for her new job she wanders into a store called “Kate’s Curiosities.” She is drawn to a bowl of beautiful stones and chooses one that Aunt Katie calls the “devil’s stone” as in the Tasmanian Devil. Strangely the woman urges Becc to leave immediately, but to also take the devil’s stone with her, claiming she will need it in the days that lie ahead. Becc finds it strange, but also finds that she likes keeping the stone in her pocket and holding it. Her arrival at her new home is a bit strange as Jesse, her employer’s son is a bit on the surly side, but Becc still likes and is attracted to him in spite of this. However, it is his brother Jarrod for whom her feelings truly spike and with whom she bonds first. While Becc and the two men work on cementing their relationship, dark times are ahead and when it is discovered that Becc may be holding a secret that could destroy them all, it is the surly Jesse who is the prevailing voice of reason. Can they discover who the threat truly is before the prophecy plays out in the most gruesome way?
Were-Devil’s Curse is an enjoyable read. The love scenes are erotic, and the descriptions of the land are beautiful. Becc is a very easy to relate to character, and her dilemma in being attracted to two men at once, brothers no less, which has never happened to her before, is well written. My biggest issue with the story is that it was the fastest insta-love I have ever read. In this case I felt it was a little too fast. While this is a lovely story I feel that the storyline called for more story development before having the three-some jump into a solid relationship. Despite this, I will be reading the other books in this series since I’m hoping that the story development I was looking for in this one will appear in later books in the series! And, I have no trouble recommending this book for those who love stories about unusual shifters mixed in with their erotic romance.
