About the Book
The wall between our world and that of vengeful spirits has protected humanity for more than 400 years. It’s about to come crashing down.
Ellie Lancaster has lived her whole life by the site of the mysterious Lost Colony of Roanoke, the Virginia settlement that vanished without a trace around 1590. Only the descendants of the two men who banished the spirits of an enemy tribe from the material realm know what really happened to the colony. Ellie is one of those descendants—a Curse Keeper. Her father took pains to teach her what he knew of the curse and the responsibilities of its guardians. He taught her that if the two Curse Keepers ever meet, the curse will be lifted, the gate will open, and the raging Native American spirits will be unleashed to seek their revenge.
Despite her father’s seriousness, Ellie has always taken the legend for a harmless fairy tale. Until she meets the darkly handsome, but downright infuriating, Collin Dailey and realizes everything she was told is true. For when they meet, it’s like the air is sucked from the room. Collin’s presence is electrifying… and it’s not just attraction Ellie feels, but the inexorable pull toward her destiny. The prophecy is real, and now Ellie and Collin must battle supernatural forces and their loathing—and passion—for each other to set things right.
The Curse Keepers are all that stand between the world and its destruction.
Top Five Books Collin Thinks You Should Read
First of all, let me say that I’m not much of a reader. I spent so much time trying to provide for my family in high school that there wasn’t much time for reading. So when I read, I read for practical purposes.
1) Practical Boat Mechanics: Common Sense Ways to Prevent, Diagnose, and Repair Engines and Mechanical Problems by Ben Evridge
Now, I know what you’re thinking—“Collin, WTF, dude? Why am I reading a book about boat engine repair?” Honestly, I don’t care if you read it or not, but it’s my bible. There’s not a whole lot of spare money laying around to fix a forty year old boat engine, which means I’m fixing it myself.
2) The Complete Guide to Lock Picking by Eddie the Wire (I’m serious. That’s his name.)
Why should everyone read this book? How many times have you been locked out of your house? Or your car? Who has the money or the time to call a locksmith? Why not learn how to pick that lock yourself and save yourself a lot of hassle? Feel free to use your new found skills for other nefarious activities. I know I sure do.
3) Bringing Down the House: The Inside Story of Six M.I.T. Students Who Took Vegas for Millions by Ben Merrich
I confess, I’m not much of a poker player, so I actually learn something from this book but it got me in a world of shit with Marino’s boy once. It took a lot of talking to convince them I hadn’t cheated. Why should everyone else read it? Who wants to go to Vegas or Atlantic City and lose their shirt?
4) Penthouse Magazine
It has some great articles.
5) Fifty Shades of Grey by E.L. James
I confess, I read parts of this book and thought “women are getting themselves all worked up over this?” But guys—women are getting themselves all worked up over this! Do yourself a favor. Buy and give it to your girlfriend.
About the Author
New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Denise Grover Swank was born in Kansas City, Missouri and lived in the area until she was nineteen. Then she became a nomadic gypsy, living in five cities, four states and ten houses over the course of ten years before she moved back to her roots. She speaks English and smattering of Spanish and Chinese which she learned through an intensive Nick Jr. immersion period. Her hobbies include witty Facebook comments (in own her mind) and dancing in her kitchen with her children. (Quite badly if you believe her offspring.) Hidden talents include the gift of justification and the ability to drink massive amounts of caffeine and still fall asleep within two minutes. Her lack of the sense of smell allows her to perform many unspeakable tasks. She has six children and hasn’t lost her sanity. Or so she leads you to believe.
