I love Cathy Maxwell's books and this one did not disappoint. A twist with the curse makes you wonder what will happen through out the entire book. Can't wait for the 2nd book "The Scottish Witch".

This book has all the things that people love about romance novels, and then it adds a little more. The chemistry between Thea and Lyon is passionate and heartwarming, however, one of the best parts about this book is that Maxwell doesn’t throw away characters. Each one is a real person with real hopes, fears, and dreams. Lyon’s siblings, especially his brother, provide the story with some light moments and wonderful plot twists.

I am so glad I found this author and all 3 books are now out so I can go right into Harry's story, book 2. I really loved Neal and Thea, plus her children are so love able. This story is so heart warming at times, and fearful too. I also loved the secondary character's. A very unique story line, the author brings the character's to life in less than 200 Nook pages. You need to complete all 3 books or you won't know if the curse is broken, sort of a small cliffhanger. (Ljb)

I enjoyed the story and characters but it ends abruptly with a cliff hanger to be continued. It has more detailed sex scenes than I am comfortable with.

This is the first installment of the Chattan Curse series by Cathy Maxwell, and I must say, what a marvelous start! This book is *sigh* inducing and oh, so romantic. A great story of second chances and true love conquering all . Neal Chattan aka Lord Lyon and his family are cursed. The Chattan Curse is to punish and prevent any of them from falling in love. For generations, his ancestors have been attempting to avoid or stop the curse only to wind up with the same fate, death. Lyon's brother and sister have made a pact that the curse will end with them, not continuing with their blood line. But Lyon has other plans. Widowed with two young sons, Thea Martin has become the town’s successful match maker. Lord Lyon requested for her services but with specific requirements. Although Thea was against them, Thea accepts the job as her financial status has gone to a dwindle. The problem is Thea and Neal shared a past that will complicate their business arrangements. I love second chances at love. Ms. Maxwell has given this couple a chance at a well deserved happiness despite their life struggles. The world building was great and Ms Maxwell's writing flowed. The character buildup was also good even for the secondary characters. Thea was a great heroine, a kick ass single mom who knew her priorities. And Neal the honorable hero who makes the right decision in the end. I love that their romance was done in good timing and being acquainted in the past, their love only needed to grow. Some parts of this book were totally cliche but every bit as heart warming. With that, I leave you with a quote: "No woman had ever completely over powered him with desire. She was quicksilver and light. She was the stars, the moon, the sun. In this moment, she owned his entire being." * Review copy provided by publisher

The final book of a series I read completely backward just didn't live up to what I had come to expect from reading books two and three. I'm glad that I had read them out of order, or I don't know if I would have continued the series.  The Chattan family line has been cursed - and this generation is determined to be the last. They will not fall in love, they will not have children, and the curse will die with them. But Lord Lyon has to go and change his mind - right before Thea re-enters his life. He has hired a match maker to find him a wife he doesn't like (that was a little bit funny) only to discover she's the one that he just may fall in love with.  Thea thinks the curse is a load of rubbish and nothing Lyon can say will change her mind. Their book was a little too tame and predictable for me. I found myself knowing what was going to happen before I turned the page (and not because I had read the rest of the series). It just didn't have the little extra unique-ness I like in a relationship and relied too heavily on the curse to make the story seem different.  Thea's two children were a lot of fun though. I can imagine them running around all over the place and getting into trouble while trying to stay out of it. They were quite the charmers and their relationship with both Thea and Lyon was very nice.
