    Cursed by Jamie Leigh Hansen

    I read Jamie Leigh Hansen's "Cursed" without reading, "Betrayed", the first book of this series. That may have been why it took me a bit longer to get up to speed on who was who and their attendant motivations. I've already put "Betrayed" on my TBR since I found "Cursed" such an interesting read. Hansen's series is about gods and goddesses, angels and demons, and their descendants. I'm still not sure I have ALL the back-story, and I had to read the ending twice to really understand it, but I enjoyed the book for all that.<BR/><BR/>Alex is a descendant of an angel. He's also able to heal both himself and others. Apart from this, he's led mostly a normal kind of life...except in his dreams. For twelve years he's continued to dream of the girl he loved who turned him down and moved away without word. But in his dreams, they still meet...and occasionally make exquisite love. When he suddenly is 'gifted' with a dream of the future where he watches his 'dream girl' die, he's confused and a bit worried. When he runs into his 'dream girl' who has moved back home to take care of her family, he's more than worried.<BR/><BR/>Beth learned at a young age about her ability to actually pull others into her dreams. The first time she did it to escape a horrible event...and ended up punishing a would-be rapist. Then after she fled town, she used it to keep in touch with her first love...Alex. But her fears of men and her upbringing have taught her that love isn't possible for her, and it will take all of Alex's powers of persuasion and some help from a few powerful friends, to break through her fears.<BR/><BR/>This book is weighted more toward the fantasy than the romance. So if that's not your cuppa, then you may want to avoid it. If you do like fantasy, especially less dark urban fantasy, then you may well enjoy this fascinating glimpse into the highly imaginative mind of Jamie Leigh Hansen.

    an intriguing romantic urban fantasy

    Since they attended high school together, Alex has loved Elizabeth. However, although she feels for him, she has made it clear that an intimate relationship beyond friendship is impossible. He assumes he suffers from unrequited love, but she has secrets that keep her from reaching out to him. Alex is a healer whose touch can cure anyone; Elizabeth is a dream weaver with the ability to ensnare people in her nightmares. Although she loves Alex, she fears what she will do to him especially since her father is a powerful fallen angel who is battling her soul for control of her mind and body. Thus she left him and their hometown.<BR/><BR/>Elizabeth has returned home to help her family while Alex knows as he did before she left he still loves her. However, besides her rogue angel dad, a goddess has plans for Alex; anyone in the way must die and who knows (besides Ms. Hansen) what else might crawl out from the Tunnels of the Forgotten Ones.<BR/><BR/>Somewhat overwhelming with a large cast and so much happening, CURSED, the sequel to BETRAYED is an intriguing romantic urban fantasy. The story line is filled with action, but at its best when either or both lead characters are at the vortex of the plot. Readers will wonder whether Elizabeth and Alex have a future together and for that matter whether either has a future at all.<BR/><BR/>Harriet Klausner
