Review: Cursed to Kill (Inherited Damnation #1) by Claire Ashgrove

One of eight children born to an ancient Celtic priestess and sired by a demonic incubus, Cian McLaine suffers from a centuries-old curse. Though his immortality allows him to enjoy the pleasures of mortal life, he is plagued by the desire to kill. As long as he doesn't fall in love he can keep the compulsion at bay.

When Cian walked into her rare bookstore months ago, Miranda Phillips never imagined she'd lose her heart to the handsome playboy. Her reward for doing so was abandonment. Cian left as mysteriously as he appeared, in the middle of the night with no explanation, no goodbye. Now he's back, and passion flares just as hot. But Cian has secrets. If Miranda is to survive, she must uncover the truth and free his darkened soul.

Cian McLaine suffers from a centuries old curse to kill and his love for Miranda Phillips has stirred the compulsion within in this fascinating paranormal romance.

The reader can’t help but be get drawn into this fascinating tale as Cian tries to keep Miranda safe from his self but the more he is around her the stronger the compulsion gets. Their attraction burns hot and their desires won’t be denied and the reader can’t practically feel the emotional turmoil surrounding their relationship. The characters are strong, compelling and grab the reader’s attention from the very beginning and ensure that the reader wants to know if they find a way for their happily ever after.

The well written scenes and details capture the imagination, bringing the story to life while the well orchestrated suspense sends chills down the spine as the anticipation builds and the danger escalates. This romance has a seriously dark side but the hope that good overcomes evil, that love will overcome it all holds the reader spellbound and grips the spirit. Cian and Miranda are the kind of characters that readers can really get into as they fight natural inclinations to achieve what may be impossible.

I was completely caught up in this story and the intriguing characters occupying a very fascinating world with interesting elements and I am cant’ wait to read the next one and see what happens to the next McLaine sibling.
