A fatal kiss, forbidden love—cursed in stone.
Aspiring author, Nate Wilson wants some space from his overbearing family and a job he doesn’t like. A week on the Oregon coast sounds like paradise and just what he needs to get the creative juices flowing. Unfortunately, his plans are derailed when a storm moves in and a ghostly figure flashes in his headlights, sending him skidding off the road and into a tree. Lucky for him, he ends up in front of a Bed and Breakfast, and the beautiful owner may do more to spur his creativity than any beach could.
Hesitant witch and inn owner, Haylee Clark is cursed. Well, not her exactly—at least not yet—but all of the women in her family have suffered the same fate. They fell in love, only to have that passion turn sour and their husbands die tragically, leaving them brokenhearted. So far, Haylee has done well to avoid that destiny, but when the captivating Nate Wilson crashes into her life, he awakens something within her that she never thought to feel.
When the pair stumbles upon a hidden room where Haylee’s grandmother used to conduct her rituals, they unknowingly unleash a dark entity hell-bent on destruction, and discover that a family heirloom is the source of the Clark family curse. Despite the spell, they can’t deny their attraction, and give in to the magic between them. But the closer Haylee and Nate get, the more the curse tries to tear them apart. If they don’t find a way to defeat the evil, they may lose more than their hearts.

A fun and entertaining paranormal read. It was quick but enjoyable. The paranormal aspects and the writing were my favorite parts of the story. I do wish the novella could have been a bit longer as we had just begun to get to know our characters when the story ended. I like the combination of having one paranormal character while the other is completely human. It made for an interesting combination. I found the sunstone plot to be intriguing and am interested to see how it plays out in the next story. All in all, I think these will be a great little series of novellas that I look forward to checking out.

Received this book for an honest review from the author. This is a short story of about 68 pages so things will happen somewhat quickly. Witches, ghost and gargoyles will appear in this story. Come visit The Clark House in Lafayette, Oregon to experience the haunted bed and breakfast. No one stays for long. The right people will come together and lives will intertwine if the curse is not broken death is sure to follow. Breaking one curse will allow another one step closer to ending another’s torment.
