Curse and Consequence
Fantasy / 386 views / Popular
A girl of humble means. Two wealthy gentlemen. A most inconvenient curse.
Miss Rea Abernathy only wants to honor the family who has taken her under their wing, rescuing her from a life of poverty. But thanks to a closely guarded secret and two determined suitors, she finds herself in a state far worse than the one from which her benefactress saved her.
When Mr. Sedgwick Whitby sets his sights on his mother’s sweet-tempered pig keeper, his orderly life is thrown into chaos: Rea’s station is less–than-desirable, and another fellow may be pursuing her. Hoping to get his annoyingly charming twin brother out of the way, Sedgwick purchases a simple curse from a disreputable faery which consequently plunges them all into a misfortune far more serious than troubles of the heart.
With tempers flying high and time running out to break the faery’s spell, can Sedgwick and Rea set things right and find love after all?
Regency meets dragons in this frolicking romantic fantasy about a comely pig keeper, two bantering brothers, and the curse binding them all together. Perfect for fans of Jane Austen, Diana Wynne Jones, and Gail Carson Levine.
