Callum The Cursed Clan #1 by Melissa Schroeder

calumHis duty was all that mattered.

Callum Lennon has one goal in life: protect his cousins. His failure in the past to do just that is what drives every action. When they discover a chance for redemption, Callum is willing to try. But trusting an outsider isn’t acceptable.

A woman in need of a new beginning.

An expert in archeology, Phoebe has always felt dwarfed by her parents’ shadow. In college by thirteen, she’s never measured up to her parents’ high standards. When the Lennons contact her, she decides to take a chance…and finds herself intrigued by the most insufferable man.

A passion impossible to ignore.

One argument leads to a kiss and to an unbearable desire they cannot seem to fight. When an old enemy threatens their fragile new love, Callum will have to choose between believing his mind or trusting his heart.

Forces outside the family are determined to ensure that they fail. When an old enemy threatens both the well being of the clan and the fragile new love, Callum will have to choose between believing his mind or his heart.

Magic, myth and mystery with sexy Scots to suck you in.

If you are are looking to read a book that you will not be able to put down, well look no further.  Ms. Schroeder delivers a story that will have you fully immersed from page one.  Legends, myths and gorgeous distant lands are just the beginning.  I got so drawn into the story, it was like I was standing along beside Callum and Phoebe.  I could clearly hear the accents of the cousins in my head.

There was nothing about this story that I did not like.  Callum and Phoebe are both wonderful characters.  Callum, so strong willed and loyal to his clan.  Everything he does is for the good of his clan.  So strong willed in fact that he almost let his pride get in the way of taking the steps of freeing the clan from the curse.  Phoebe, smart and beautiful( although she hides her beauty under ugly suits) agrees to help the Lennons.  There is something about Phoebe that I really liked.  I loved that she stood up to this big, sexy Scot.  She was good at what she did, but in ways timid and shy.  Ms. Schroeder has this great talent of knowing her characters really well before she ever puts them to the pages of a book.  They way Callum and Phoebe are together just heighten the story.

This book was good in so many ways.  Most people know Melissa Schroeder as an erotic author.  Well she did one hell of a job with paranormal.  I can’t even imagine the amount of research that went into the writing of this book.   The story has a great plot and flows amazingly.  As I said it will suck you in.  The heat level may not be as high as some of Melissa other books, but there is rich culture and deep heated passion that will not leave you lacking.

I have a funny feeling, knowing Mel, this is only a prelude of what to come in this series!

I was given a ecopy of this book for an honest review.
