Ms. Heckart has written an entertaining tale that combines both history and fantasy in a way that will enchant the reader. Definitely put this one in your “I’m gonna read it next” pile!Rie McGaha -- Book Reviews by Rie McGaha
The tale of these two lovers starts bridging not only their relationship but also the differing religious sects and cultures, adding much needed intrigue. I ended up loving this book. I cannot wait for more.ParaNormalRomance Reviews
This is true dark ages stuff – the aftermath of Rome’s occupation of Britain, and the growing influence of Christianity vs. the old pagan ways and gods. I love epic historical/high fantasy. Fae, Celt, vampire, curses – all rolled into one book. You truly are transported to a magical time and place…it’s a wonderful escape book for anyone wanting to get away from it all and I would definitely recommend it.Heather -- Long and Short of It
Cat’s Curse is a wonderful story full of spells, trust, betrayal, and for the two, unconditional love. This is a complicated book but easy to read and I love how the subplots built up the main story. Every character is developed. The dialogue and action keeps the book fast paced, and while I may not agree with their motivations, the personalities all make sense. The action blends into the story and love scenes are sensuous instead of graphic, along with being very compelling. I just loved how Ms Heckart used religion as a story device while treating it with respect. This well thought out story is a very easy to recommend historical. I look forward to more of this trilogy.Anya -- CoffeeTimeRomance
This was a remarkable book to read. It has all the earmarks of an enduring romance: suspense, danger, misunderstandings, true love and great sex. At the same time, it also has the elements of a wonderful fantasy story. The author’s detailed descriptions in the book brings you into the land she’s created, a fascinating escape from the day to day drudgery of our lives. I’m looking forward to the next book of this wonderful trilogy.Kris Plausky -- ecataromance
