After receiving a cryptic letter about a
healing statuette, Marianne meets a man simply known as The
Collector. In exchange for her traveling half way across the
world to retrieve the mysterious demi-goddess, not only would
she have access to the statuette’s healing powers, which would
come in handy for her ill brother, Lex, but she’d also receive
a handsome monetary reward, which would help pay off her
brother’s doctor bills. There’s just one catch. She’d have
to travel with Nicholas, the man who, inexplicably,
disappeared from her life seven years ago.
Nicholas is still affected by Marianne,
even after so many years have passed, but he can’t bear to
tell her the real reason he left her. He can’t just tell her
that he was struck by a car and, while he lay dying on the
road, was turned into a vampire by a passing stranger! And
that he couldn’t return to her because he didn’t want to
destroy her life!
As Nicholas and Marianne continue their
mission, sexual tension mounts and the plot thickens as they
battle natural disaster, as well as a despicable villain in
order to retrieve the statue and return home in time to cure
Marianne’s brother. But while they’re focusing on healing
Lex, will they also be able to heal each other’s hearts in the
process and find their happily ever after?
Love Cure is a fascinating read.
I loved the way The Collector brought together these two
people who’d loved and lost, in hopes that they’d love again.
My heart ached for Nicholas and Marianne as they obviously
remained in love with each other, even though their prior
parting was so heart wrenching. The plot reminded me of a
vampire Raiders of the Lost Ark, with adventure, disaster and
a trek to a far off place in search of something ethereal and
priceless. The plot twist towards the end tugged at my
heartstrings even further, and when the story ended, I found
myself wishing for more. Kai Andersen did a fabulous job with
Love Cure. I know I’ll be searching out the rest of
The Collector series for more great reading entertainment.
