Raisonne Curse

Book 1 of The Brothers Bernaux

Note: This book was originally published with Samhain Publishing. Only the cover has changed. The content is the same.

RAISONNE CURSE (The Brothers Bernaux book one.)

For years, Elita Raisonne has been on the run from a family curse that endangered her cousins and killed her mother and aunts. On the heels of yet another painful accident, Elita’s only hope is to trek deep into Louisiana’s Atchafayala Basin and ask the mysterious Bernaux brothers for help.
With one look at the beautiful redhead, Pryor Bernaux recognizes the abilities of a powerful hex worker. An evil, black smudge clings to Elita like a deadly shroud. With the help of his brothers, he could break the curse, but Mercer and Wyatt are away and Pryor can see she’s running out of time. He has no choice but to help the woman who makes him want things he and his brothers swore they’d never have.
The magical backlash is torture and the risk he’s taking threatens his heart. Unfortunately, it also threatens his life.
Keep a cold beverage on hand, because the bayou isn’t all that’s hot and steamy in this book. Deadly hexes, naked spellworking, mouthwatering court-bouillon, and sexy Cajuns will curl your toes…and maybe your hair.


The word I’d use to describe the Bernaux boys is yummy. Seeing as how this is technically their series I suppose it’s only right that they dominate the scenes. If you’re looking for a good book boyfriend you have three very fine contenders right here. We don’t get too much of Mercer and Wyatt in Raisonne Curse, but it’s definitely enough to whet your appetite while waiting for the next book (which I’m betting and hoping will be Mercer’s).

I loved this one. It is definitely up to Rinda Elliott’s standard. I now wait with anticipation for where things will go next.

OMG, people–THIS BOOK!!!!!—Overall: Rinda Elliott does a fantastic job at drawing the reader in from the first word and ensuring they don’t want to stop reading until the end…and even then I wanted to immediately get to the next story to find out what happens with the next brother. The characters, the bayou setting, and the language of the people all jumped off the page–I could hear the accents as they spoke, I could almost smell what they were smelling, see what they were seeing. It takes a great storyteller and a great writer to make my senses reel like that when reading. Anxiously and impatiently awaiting the next book!!!!
