A countess flees home—and the family curse requiring her to marry a prince—to hide out in the South Carolina low country. There, she meets a man who’s not quite a prince…but who steals her heart all the same.
Find out what happens in the fifth installment in Jennifer Chance’s Crowns and Gowns series, CURSED!
When the prince she was supposed to marry falls for someone else, Edeena Saleri is done with Garronia’s courts, crowns, and family curses. She grabs her sisters and escapes to the nobility-free coast of South Carolina, USA.
Refuge isn’t anything like it’s supposed to be, however. The family’s island vacation home now borders a singles’ retreat, which Edeena’s sisters embrace all too eagerly. Worse, the private protection firm Edeena hires is run by the most infuriating man she’s ever met–a rough-hewn, dark-eyed, charismatic charmer named, of course, Prince. He’s not a royal and he’s nowhere near noble, so there’s no way he can break the family curse. And yet…
Vincent “Prince” Rallis has spent his whole life justifying his name. The son of hardworking immigrant parents, he’s hustled for every dime, finally building a personal security firm with the muscle and grit to live up to its promises. He’s used to keeping his cool, but when the high-strung, high-class Edeena shuts him down despite her obvious interest, pride demands he fight for her–even if he has to track her back to her glittering court to prove his point. Only once Prince arrives in the seaside kingdom of Garronia, he finds his troubles are just beginning.
Sometimes love in Garronia can be magic. And sometimes you’re just Cursed.

Cursed is a great standalone-within-a-series. This book can be read on its own, but would best be enjoyed after reading the previous books. Edeena runs away from her home with her sisters. She can’t take the curse anymore. While she is away she meets a “Prince.” From there the story really takes off and we get a fun, engaging story that you can’t put down.
Edeena is selfless. She makes sacrifices for others happiness. She’s tough and loyal. Vince, “Prince,” is a great character. He’s ready for anything, laid back and oh so sexy. They get a story that is full of laughs and love. Its about family and loyalty. I would recommend this to the reader looking for royalty, funnies and a steamy love story.
