Ricardo Cuaron has been on the run for over 100 years, cursed with immortality and damned by the blood of a shapeshifter. He’s tried to find a place to hide and rest. He’s tried to forgive himself for his past. But the past is relentless … just like the monster devouring Ricardo from the inside out.
Behind Ricardo is Tomas Morales: a father who lost a child, who will never stop short of vengeance — even if it costs his soul to find it. Tomas was once a man, like Ricardo. But he’s a man no longer, and he will never stop coming.
Ricardo’s only hope for salvation is to find the woman who helped him once, who helped him in turn when he needed it most. But Penelope Miller has secrets of her own … and now there’s a new hunter on the trail, eager to capture them both.
Is there an end for Ricardo, be it in Heaven or Hell? Or is there only the sameness of everyday that he’s been plodding for a century … an unrelenting march of horror?
Cursed is an epic 9-book series, now available in this complete omnibus. Birthed from the inquisitive minds of Platt & Truant (authors of theInvasion series and The Beam), you’ve never met a cast of terrors quite like this.
Lily Whistler has a dream, birthed from the fanciful Parisian memories of her late mother: to open a floral shop called La Fleur de Blanc, selling only white flowers. Back home in Kansas, such a fairy tale notion could never survive … but in the fashionable seaside town of Cielo del Mar, Lily has gambled her inheritance that it will.
At first, the lavish Palms Couture shopping center seems like the perfect place to start again. The weather is beautiful; the vistas of the ocean are breathtaking; the customers are elegant and wealthy. There are even two men who’d suit Lily’s fancy if she had time for romance: charming Len, who operates a fine food cart, and the dark and brooding Matthew Vitale, who runs Bella by the Sea — an elite restaurant that hosts only a few couples per night at an exorbitant price.
But the one thing Lily didn’t anticipate was a nemesis: Kerry Barrett Kirby, who owns an upscale furniture store across the courtyard. Kerry seems determined to crush Lily for a reason Lily can’t imagine … and has the power and connections at the Palms Couture to make it happen.
Lily only has one chance to make her shop work — a tall feat, considering the prior shops Kerry has driven out of business, and the way the Palms always bows to Kerry’s will. But Lily’s charm has bought her a handful of unlikely allies … and as Kerry will find out, quiet little Lily Whistler has more than a few country girl tricks up her sleeve.
Desperate to forget the sudden death and illuminated betrayal of his new wife and longtime girlfriend, Ebon Shale flees to the quiet seaside town of Aaron, a place that’s been calling him back since he was a child.
But once there, Ebon feels lost. The small town’s citizens are as odd as its energy, and seem to shift the reality before him.
Will Aaron help Ebon forget, or will it swallow him whole?
