With This Curse

(2014)
(The first book in the With This Curse series)
A novel by

 
The haunting gothic romance that "hits all the right notes" (Publishers Weekly) and won the 2015 Daphne du Maurier Award in historical mystery/suspense!

Can a curse strike twice?
In 1855, Clara Crofton was dismissed from her chambermaid position at Gravesend Hall for falling in love with the younger son of the house. When he died soon after in the Crimean War, she blamed the Gravesend Curse.

Now, eighteen years later, she has the chance to return to the sinister manor in triumph through a marriage of convenience to Atticus Blackwood, the twin brother of her dead sweetheart. But as gentle as her new husband appears, Clara knows that he has hidden motives for marrying her. And when another death occurs, she fears that the curse has struck again...and that this time she will not escape.

With This Curse captures all the intrigue, romantic tension, and sumptuous Victorian atmosphere of gothic romance in the classic tradition, enhanced by the sly humor and wit for which Amanda DeWees is renowned. Publishers Weekly says, "Readers who enjoy a little shiver with their romance will appreciate this historical," and InD'Tale magazine calls it "a feast for the eye and a joy to devour!"

If you love mystery, poignant romance, and richly immersive historical fiction, or if you're a fan of Victoria Holt and Barbara Michaels, prepare to be captivated by With This Curse. And when you're ready for more romance and gothic adventure, be sure to read the thrilling sequel, Cursed Once More!
