Of Curses and Contempt

By: H. L. Hamilton


About the Book

There are three truths Lark knows with absolute certainty:
There is nothing she won't do for those she loves.
Those born without magic will always be seen exclusively as prey.
Never trust the Zodiac Kinship.

When her Father falls deathly ill, Lark is sent into one of the most dangerous places in Meridian to save his life. She braves old myths and even older magic, but a twist of fate puts a target on her back and the Crowned Assassin of the Zodiac Kinship on her trail.

Nobody escapes him...but it's possible he can't escape her either.

An unlikely alliance is formed, but when the only thing that matters is ripped away from her in the ultimate betrayal, she'll stop at nothing to take her revenge. Even if it rips out what's left of her heart.


About the Author

H.L. Hamilton is a small town girl enjoying life in a big city in Ontario, Canada with her long time partner, Justin and their rescue dog and cat, whom she refers to as her fur children.

She's a competitive equestrian and hockey player but you can often find her settling into a video game or a book. She lives almost exclusively on lattes and cereal and wonders why she's tired all the time, much to her partner's exasperation.

    Fae? Magic? Curses? Enemies to lovers?Touch her and ? trope? Strong FMC? Shadow daddy? Found family? Need I say more? This was a wonderfully written fantasy book! Locke and Lark are two characters I will continue to think about long after finishing this as I wait for the next novel. Lark's story resonated so much with me, I honestly teared up at multiple points. Her distrust of people because of her past and people constantly using her and turning on her, it was an emotional ride for sure. The spice was ? incredibly written and super hot. I cannot wait for this to release and for me to own a physical copy for my trophy bookshelf!

    Lovers to Enemies to Lovers… yes please. Throw in some forced proximity .. fated mates.. elemental magic.. vulnerable characters.. great storyline, smooth transitions.. Fantastic banter.. and you have a 5 Star book! Lark is so relatable, a life being bullied and alone.. her guard is up.. and you can feel her trepidation to trust . You will find yourself crying with her and cheering her on, she is fierce and strong, courageous and loyal even when she can’t see it in herself. Locke is cool and calculated.. secretive and disarming, tortured by his past.. intent to save her, even from herself. He is the perfect combo of hero and villain.. A little mystery, a lot of curse.. this book will take you there and back again with a promise of more to come! Without a doubt I recommend this read . 10/10!
