Publish Date: July 2, 2013
Genre: Urban Fantasy Romance
Series: 2nd book in The Weird Girls series; 0.5 Novella ~ The Weird Girls 1st Book ~ Sealed with a Curse
Recommendation: Oooooh yes. Pick it up! Full of romance and action with vampires, werewolves, and demons.
Celia Wird and her three sisters are just like other twenty-something girls -- with one tiny exception: They are the products of a curse that backfired and gave each of them unique powers that made them, well, a little weird...
After Celia and her sisters help master vampire Misha save his family, their powers are exposed to the supernatural community of the Lake Tahoe region. But fame comes at a price, and being "weird" isn't always welcome.
To make matters worse, Celia desires the love of Alpha werewolf Aric, but his pack is bent on destroying their relationship to preserve his pureblood status. And once weres start turning up dead -- with evidence pointing to vampires -- she must face the prospect of losing Aric forever. But the chaos only masks a new threat. An evil known as the Tribe has risen -- and their sights are set on Celia and her sisters.
A dead wereraccoon on your doorstep is no way to start the morning.

My Thoughts and Summary:
Celia is trying to keep her sisters calm when a pussy wereraccoon dies on their doorstep and Taran has been having nightmares of demons. Both werewolves and vampires want to help Celia and her sisters. Celia and her sisters are "protected" by two supernatural enemies - a strong werewolf pack and a powerful vampire clan. A week ago things started to heat with the kiss between Celia and Aric, then he bolted and hasn't called. When Aric returns he brings news of a case he's now on, where human men are being killed around town. What they find with the men...could connect all things together. There is a new group forming and the leader has it's eyes on the magically cursed sisters. However, Celia tries to fight her feelings for Aric while their relationship blooms into something she never suspected she would have. But, Aric being a Pureblood and leader could cause new bumps for them. Celia and her sisters work with Aric to solve the case, hoping to prove she's not a distraction from his duties to the Elders. But, the case could be more than the girls can handle with what the creatures are known to do.
Cecy starts off hitting strong with current happenings and complications for the Wird sisters. And never lets up! The first three pages had me snagged in it's net, and I DID NOT want to get out. By the end of first chapter - Hook, Line, Sinker. I was a goner. A book I didn't want to stop. One heck of a kicking second book to a series! Wowza!
I love Aric, love all the Weres. Love the Sisters! My heart beat for Celia and Aric. I so love them and want them to be together. And Taran! Oh Taran. She has her own issues with her pick of the litter. And eventually we find out why. *giggle* Perfect. And Taran with her nightmares. They are terrible, and scare her for her families safety. In this romance, we learn of the sisters possible destinies with them men they have chosen.
Now, in the end. The story of the deaths was completed. But there was something in Celia's relationship ending that left me... unsettled. I know why we end this way. I accept it. But, I wanted more. I wanted the next book to try and ease my heart a tad. I can't wait for Cursed By Destiny to come! January 2014 can't come fast enough.
The story! Wow. I was flipping pages to keep up with the demon case, the men murdered around town, and wondering on the tie to the dead wereraccoon on their doorstep. Action packed! I know the boys want to girls to stay safe and not in the midst of terrible actions, but dang... Those girls are kick butt! The girls are amazing as a group. These girls have their limits, but as a team, they can be dangerous. Cecy is not afraid to get down and dirty with her girls in some brutal action with her romance. Balances the scales of love and action beautifully.
When I read romance, this is what I want with it. Everything in one neat package, and Cecy has the perfect recipe!
