The Cursed is the exciting first book in the new League of the Black Swan series from Alyssa Day.
Rio Jones (Green, etc) is a bike messenger girl in the Bordertown (a realm between the supernatural world and Manhattan, NY). Did I mention that Rio can read people's thoughts? Now she finds herself in need of Luke Oliver's PI skills to rescue a young human girl kidnapped by something evil. Rio has had a crush on Luke Oliver but he has dismissed her advances until now...
Luke Oliver is a PI in Bordertown, but behind the man is also a super powerful Dark Wizard. He recently received a message from the League of the Dark Swan with a picture of Rio Jones. He has kept his distance from Rio because she is the one person that could break his careful control. Now she is being threatened and the Dark Swan wants her. He will stop at nothing to protect Rio, even loose his soul.
Explosive sexual chemistry and tender hearts are the building block of Rio and Luke’s relationship. Under the strength and power of our two main characters is deeply caring and genuinely good people.
Sporting a cast of enigmatic, witty and entertaining characters, The Cursed is a marvelous start to a "most follow" new series.
