Today’s Pub Day recommendation, which is The Kiss Curse by Erin Sterling, goes out to everyone who’s already decorated their house for Halloween! But then again, who doesn't love a good Halloween story any time of year?!
Gwyn Jones is perfectly happy with her life in Graves Glen. She, her mom, and her cousin have formed a new and powerful coven; she’s running a successful witchcraft shop, Something Wicked; and she’s started mentoring some of the younger witches in town. As Halloween approaches, there’s only one problem—Llewellyn “Wells” Penhallow. Wells has come to Graves Glen to re-establish his family’s connection to the town they founded as well as to make a new life for himself after years of being the dutiful son in Wales. When he opens up a shop of his own, Penhallow’s, just across the street from Something Wicked, he quickly learns he’s gotten more than he bargained for in going up against Gwyn. When their professional competition leads to a very personal—and very hot—kiss, both Wells and Gwyn are determined to stay away from each other, convinced the kiss was just a magical fluke. But when a mysterious new coven of witches come to town and Gwyn’s powers begin fading, she and Wells must work together to figure out just what these new witches want and how to restore Gwyn’s magic before it’s too late.
Not going to lie, I was a little hesitant about this book initially since I thought The Ex Hex was just okay. However, I ended up really enjoying The Kiss Curse! The romance plot is not only fun to read about, but this book’s the perfect not-scary book to get you in the Halloween mood!
This book had a great balance of enemies-to-lovers, romantic tension, adventure, and mystery which make this book very enjoyable to read! And while this book works better as a sequel, you can probably still get away with reading it as a stand-alone!
If you’re looking for a romance with all the witchy and Halloween vibes, this is the book for you!
