“Curse Touched,” the second installment in Becky Moynihan’s “A Touch of Vampire” series, deepens the intricate tapestry of paranormal intrigue and romance established in the first book. This sequel not only escalates the stakes for its protagonist but also explores the complexities of trust, identity, and destiny within a richly imagined supernatural world.

The narrative picks up with our heroine grappling with the aftermath of her aunt’s betrayal and the unsettling revelations about Lochlan D’angelo, the man who oscillates between being her stalker and savior. Her struggle is not just against external threats but also internal turmoil, as she questions the authenticity of Lochlan’s words and the very nature of the bond they share. This crisis of faith sets the stage for a story that is as much about seeking truth as it is about confronting destiny.


Forced to reside in a supernatural school secluded from the world she knows, the protagonist faces a critical choice: to embrace the safety of the academy’s walls or to venture out and aid the vampires in lifting their curse. Moynihan skillfully uses this dilemma to explore themes of courage and self-discovery, as decisions made in the shadows of doubt reveal the true grit of her characters.

“Curse Touched” picks up right where its predecessor left us hanging, with Lochlan grappling with his near-fatal wounds and Kenna, our protagonist, entrenched in a whirlwind of revelations that challenge everything she believed. As Kenna navigates her new reality at Thornecrest Academy, a sanctuary for the supernatural, she’s tormented by the distance from Lochlan, her cursed fate, and the prophecy she’s bound to fulfill. Introducing new characters and complexities adds layers to the narrative, enriching the world Becky Moynihan has skillfully crafted.

The story takes readers on a rollercoaster of emotions and intrigue, weaving forbidden love, magical entanglements, and the eternal dance of fated mates into the fabric of Kenna and Lochlan’s journey. The addition of Thornecrest Academy as a setting expands the universe, introducing us to a broader spectrum of the supernatural community and its challenges. The dynamics between Kenna and the vampires, particularly Lochlan and his brothers, deepen, offering a mix of steamy romance, heartfelt moments, and the relentless shadow of danger.

“Curse Touched” excels in weaving a complex narrative that marries elements of forbidden romance with the lore of fated mates. The relationship between the protagonist and Lochlan is fraught with tension and tenderness, making their journey a compelling core around which the story orbits. The push and pull of their interactions, coupled with the looming curse and a foreboding prophecy, creates a riveting reading experience that balances romantic yearning with the thrill of adventure.

Moynihan’s world-building is expansive and detailed, enriching the series’ mythology without overwhelming the reader. The supernatural school serves as a setting and a crucible for the protagonist, where mysteries of her past unfurl and future paths are forged. The author’s prose is engaging, with a knack for crafting vivid scenes that immerse readers in her characters’ emotional and physical landscapes.

This sequel keeps the reader engrossed, balancing the tender development of Kenna and Lochlan’s relationship with the looming threats that test their bond. The narrative is adeptly paced, ensuring each chapter builds upon the last, culminating in a crescendo that leaves readers desperate for more. The steamy scenes are tastefully intertwined with the plot, enhancing the emotional depth rather than detracting from the story’s core.

Moynihan’s writing shines in its ability to convey love, destiny, and sacrifice complexities. The characters are meticulously developed, with Kenna emerging as a beacon of strength and determination and Lochlan evolving from a mysterious figure into a hero worth rooting for. The supporting cast, particularly Kade, adds vibrancy and humor, enriching the tale with their unique perspectives and contributions.

The cliffhanger ending is a testament to the series’ addictive nature, skillfully setting the stage for the next installment. “Curse Touched” is a masterful blend of romance, fantasy, and suspense, marking a standout entry in the paranormal genre.
