Overview

TWICE CURSED
Psychic investigator, Lily Saburi is no stranger to the supernatural. Tough as nails, she's a hunter in her own right, a once self-proclaimed vigilante that has joined forces with the man she once sought to kill, and now can't live without. Sexy, Sean Leighton, Alpha of the Brethren of Weres. Their passion surpassed every obstacle set in front of them, yet in the wake of a mysterious virus threatening everyone they love, they are embroiled in an unforgiving scheme of political double dealing, hidden agendas and assassination, with Lily and Sean as primary targets. To stay together, they are forced apart. But treachery follows hard on Lily's heels when she returns home to find New York City bathed in a series of bloodbaths. Baffled, the police have no leads, so they call in their last line of defense to work the case. Lily.

Thrown together with homicide detective, Ryan Martinez, dangerous sparks fly as the two uncover the undead truth behind the killings. Long hidden secrets are revealed, as are truths too unbelievable to accept when Lily is kidnapped and Sean and Ryan have to work together to find her.

Revenge and the struggle for power all play a part in this urban fantasy suspense, taking you from the rocky coast of Maine to the heart of New York City, the NYPD and the vampire underground, where Weres and Vampires are forced to work together to solve the mystery of what's tearing their veiled world apart from the inside out.

Meet the Author

I'm a New Yorker, born and bred, and my stories embody the grit and complexity of the city. An avid traveler, I use my experiences in all my books. There isn't a place my characters live or travel to that I haven't been myself.

My dark paranormal romance, Blood Legacy, is the first book in my Legacy Series, and takes you from New York City to the Costa del la Luz in Spain, to foggy London and the romance of Rome. It also takes you back in time 300 years to a place rife with conflict and brutality, bringing an historical edge to my vampires, their lives, a love that spanned the centuries and the search for absolution and redemption that carries death in its wake.

Hunter's Blood and Twice Cursed are books one and two in my contemporary shifter series, Cursed by Blood. The story is set on the east coast of the U.S., taking you from the rocky coast of Maine to the heart of New York City, the NYPD and the vampire underground. Revenge and the struggle for power all play a part in this urban fantasy suspense, where Weres and Vampires are forced to work together to solve the mystery of what's tearing their veiled world apart from the inside out.

My love affair with the written word started as a child. Even today, love to read almost as much as I love to write. My favorite stories transport me to places and introduce me to characters that leave me breathless...the ones that spark the fire of my imagination, allowing me to dream in the world of 'what if?'

I've always been a scribbler, and from the time I could write my name I've been making up stories. So it was no surprise when I earned degrees in both Journalism and Fine Art, but after working in the trenches of Madison Avenue as a Graphic Artist, I decided to do what I love most fulltime... Write.

I'm proud to say that while most editors respond to submissions with a blanket form letter, enough responded to my work personally, giving me hope that I truly did have talent. I guess they were right, because Twice Cursed is my third published work and is scheduled for release in October 2012.

In the meantime I am also a founding member and the current President of The Paranormal Romance Guild, a not-for-profit organization for readers and authors of the genre. Of course, I'm still writing, and when I'm not 'bichok' (but in a chair hands on keyboard), I'm spending time with my husband and our three kids, traveling to exciting, romantic places ...for inspiration, of course! Who says dreams can't come true?

    Action, Betrayal, Love and Unlikely Allies - Twice Cursed has it

    Action, Betrayal, Love and Unlikely Allies - Twice Cursed has it ALL!!

    Twice Cursed will keep you locked within its pages from the very first paragraph. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book and hope there are many more books to come!!

    With tensions still running hot at the Were Compound and Edward Parr still determined to have his way when it comes to Lily joining the pack, Lily decides it time for her to make a stand. She has heard enough and intervenes in the meeting no longer wanting to see the tension continue Lily decides it is time for her to leave Sean and the Compound and return to New York. Sean is less than happy but he know nothing he does will change her mind but that doesn't mean he has to agree to let her go alone so Jack one of his trusted hunters accompanies her back to New York to keep her protected.

    Returning to New York Lily is contacted by the police department seeking her help with a case. Lily is taken back when she realises the extent of what has happened and who is responsible. Now all Lily has to do is find a way to convince Ryan Martinez the Detective she will be working with that the killer is a Vampire. Lily sets out to track the killer but the closer she gets the more danger she knows she is in and when Sean senses her fear and she utter three words through their mental link 'I need You' she knows he is on his way.

    The latest victim of the rogue vampire is a Were giving Sean the right to request a meeting with the Vampires and together they decide to hunt the rogue but with daylight approaching when Sean is betrayed by one of his own and Lily is kidnapped it is up to him and the Detective to track her down. Lily has had her mental link with Sean shut down so she must find a way to contact him and let him know where she is and who has betrayed him. Will Lily find a way to get her message to Sean without the wrong person intercepting it and can Detective Martinez believe what he has been told and work with Sean to find Lily and finally accept his truth.

    GREAT!

    I waited a long time for this book to come out, but it was so well worth the time! Marianne Morea writes a gritty story full of action and she managed to add a twist that I never saw coming! Not an easy thing to do!! Twice Cursed answered all my questions from its prequel, Hunter's Blood, and yet posed a few more...so now I'll be breathless for book 3. When??? LI absolutely love this story!!!!

    This book is awesome! It continues the story from the first book

    This book is awesome! It continues the story from the first book Hunter's Blood. The love between Lily and Sean continues but so does the trouble. Edward is still causing trouble in the council which causes Lily to decide to go back home for awhile. When she gets there she goes right into a job where she ends up learning more about her new world and even gets kidnapped, but you will never guess who does it. There are also some sparks between her and her partner on this case. Keeps you on the edge of your seat wondering what is going to happen next all the way to the end. Definitely worth reading! Can't wait to see if there will be more in this series.

    This Author Can Write!

    Weres and cops and vamps, oh my! TWICE CURSED by Marianne Morea has GOT to be one of her best works!

    Lily Saburi, a Psychic investigator returns, a little softer, a little happier, but still one tough gal hip deep in the supernatural world. Lily is brought in to assist the New York Police Department in discovering who is behind the vicious slaughters of some of its citizens with her special talents and not everyone is happy with that, particularly the detective she has to work with. Is there an attraction, or is it something else?

    Lily's personal life is taking a turn for the better in the form of a HOT alpha wolf, Sean and she has come to terms with the loss of her best friend Terry, several months before. The new murders are gruesome and so similar to Terry's, there must be a connection. Vampires and Weres even join forces to find justice and save their people.

    Written with grit and in-your-face style, Marianne Morea has created a three-dimensional world where you almost feel the need to duck when the knives are thrown! The action and twists barrel on through the entire story with an ending that ties it all together in a neat package. There were no hanging questions, if a point was raised, there was an answer. There is great attention to detail throughout the book, with every character, every scene!
