A paranormal romance inspired by the Greek myth of the Amazon women warriors….

A powerful tribe of women warriors lives in service to the Goddess, separate from men, their sworn enemies, until mating fever strikes and they must venture into the wilderness to seek mates.

Sheltered and protected behind palace walls, Princess Reena has never even seen a man. When the mating curse compels her older, wiser cousin to seek a mate, Reena accompanies her, eager for the chance to see a man in the flesh.

Reena learns how dangerous men can be.

Embittered by a terrible wrong a woman committed against him. Garat leaves his encampment to secure the water his people need to survive. When he encounters the queen’s daughter in the wilderness, his need for vengeance consumes him, and he takes Reena hostage. But as her sweetness melts his hatred, Garat begins to suspect there is an evil behind the palace walls that wants Reena dead.

After kidnapping her, can he get his heartmate to believe the people she trusts the most want to kill her? Can he open her eyes to the evil force that threatens their love and her life?

Warrior’s Curse is a re-release of the previously published Goddess’s Curse. It has been updated with a new ending.

Warrior’s Curse is a rerelease of The Goddess’s Curse with some updates. I never read The Goddess’s Curse, so I didn’t know much about this story going in. From what I can tell, it is a stand alone Fantasy Romance.

The story takes place on a planet similar to Earth. There are two tribes, a tribe of women, the Sharona, and a tribe of men, the Lahon. The come together only for mating. If there is a male baby, it is given to Lahon and the Sharona keep the female babies. They really dislike and distrust each other, but breeding is a necessary evil.

The princess of Sharona, Reena, is very ill with an incurable disease. Her best friend and cousin, Honna, is the healer that is caring for her. However, Honna must go visit the Lahon as she must at least attempt to produce female offspring. She offers to let Renna come along, because she will likely never reach that point in her life. Things don’t turn out as they would seem.

This was another fun read by Cara Bristol. I had a great time with the characters that she created and being in the world she’s created. It is a great enemies-to-lovers story.

I’m Melanie, and I like to live vicariously through fictional characters. I enjoy reading and listening to mostly fictional books in the paranormal genre, including Urban Fantasy, Paranormal Romance and Horror. I will read contemporary romance on occasion, but not often. I will occasionally throw in a biography, usually autobiographies of people that I find interesting. Listening to autobiographies that are narrated by the author have been great in my experience.

I started listening to audiobooks when a new book in a series was coming out and I wanted to get a refresher, but didn’t have time to read all the books (I think it was Anita Blake). I fell in love. I stayed with strictly re-reading books that I’d already read for a long time. I eventually tried an audiobook for something that I hadn’t read first and was hooked there too. Now, I listen to audio for both re-reads and first time. I have some series that I’ve given up reading and only listen. I try to get any many books/audiobooks from the library to help save on my budget. Books on CD and the newer digital downloads from the library really allow me to listen more. I then purchase my favorites (because who can wait in line for your favorite book??) and less mainstream books from Audible or some other online retailer.

  1. Thanks so much for the nice review. One thing readers may not be aware of is that the story was inspired by the Greek myth of the Amazons. In mythology, the Amazons were women warriors who lived apart from men until they needed to produce offspring. According to myth, if the child turned out to be a girl, they kept her. If it was a boy, they either killed him or gave him to the men to raise. Wonder Woman was also based on the myth of the Amazons.
