5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Non-Carpathian Novel Feb. 20 2003
Format:Mass Market Paperback
While I am not usually a fan of books where the hero is overly domineering, I must concede that Christine Feehan writes so well that I enjoy her novels even though the men are so controlling and obsessive it would be frightening in real life.
"The Scarletti Curse" is not a part of the Carpathian series, but I found myself enjoying it as much, if not more. The heroine is a healer but in a time where she could be burned at the stake should this secret gift be discovered. In order to protect herself, she pretends to be a healers apprentice. Unfortunately, the one man she wishes to hide this talent from, Giovanni Scarletti, is not fooled.
Like much of Feehan's work, the story is very gothic in feel and the villain(s) are truly horrible. While the hero is constantly swooping in and saving the heroine, it becomes more of a joke between the two of them than a tiresome what-a-stupid-girl scenario.
I was leary of this novel after being dissappointed with "Lair of the Lion." This novel is much, much better. If you like her Carpathian series, or are interested in paranormal romance, this is a good book to read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fabulous Book! Fabulous Author!! March 30 2001
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I'm not usually a gothic fan, but I LOVE Christine Feehan's books, so I grabbed this one and took a chance(I did the same back when I picked up Ms. Feehan's first "Dark" book, never having been a vampire fan,and those books have become my all-time favorite Keepers). Once again this incredible author did not dissapoint. I was riveted from page one! This is an author that not only yanks you into the story with a fascinating plot and incredibly descriptive detail (I actually got chills and the hair on my arms raised while I walked through the Palazzo with Nicolletta), but her characters become a part of you. Her characters are so real I truly found myself loving them. Not just finding them interesting, amusing, wonderful and touching, but really caring about them, as though they were actual people, a part of my life. Ms. Feehan weaves such a powerful spell sometimes I have to remind myself it's not real. Her books are THAT GOOD!!!
The only drawback, of course, is the usual one, waiting impatiently for this author's next book to come out! I highly recomend The Scarletti Curse, as well as ALL of Christine Feehan's previous books. YOU ARE IN FOR A REAL TREAT!

5.0 out of 5 stars a great read! April 28 2004
Format:Mass Market Paperback
From the back of the book...
Strange, twisted cravings and hideous gargoyles adorned the palazzo of the great Scarletti family. But a still more fearful secret lurked within its storm-tossed turrets. For every bride who entered its forbidding walls was doomed to leave in a casket.
Mystical and unfettered, Nicoletta had no terror of ancient curses and no fear of marriage...until she looked into the dark, mesmerizing eyes of Don Scarletti. She had sworn no man would command her, had thought her gift of healing set her apart, but his was the right to choose a bride from among his people. And he had chosen her.
Compelled by duty, drawn by desire, she gave her body into his keeping, and prayed the powerful, tormented Don would be her heart's destiny, and not her soul's demise.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ms Feehan Dan Do No Wrong Feb. 19 2003
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I continue to love the work of Ms Feehan. She is a wonderful storyteller. Her books never seem to get old and tired.
Giovanni and Nicolette come together to make a wonderful love story. They are both "different" in a world were those differences could get them burned at the stake. Giovanni can read and talk to peoples minds. Nicolette has the ability to heal with her hands. They come together over a child's sick bed.
Giovanni realizes that Nicolette is the women he has been dreaming about and is determine to marry her. She is his light in the darkness that seems to surround him and his family.
Nicolette is a free spirit that runs around in bare feet. Raising plants for medicine and enjoying her freedom. She always seems to be in trouble.
This is a warm and wonderful story that everyone should read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fabulous, caputured the period beautifully... Jan. 19 2003
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I am not a romance reader, but a friend recommended this book so I bought it. I loved it. It was just "what the doctor ordered"! Great romance, intriguing hero, very compelling heroine, etc. I will definitely search for this author's Dark series books next. If you love gothic, you'll really enjoy this book. And I really enjoyed the italien phrases Zia, Zio, Mia, pallazzo etc. it enriched the story. Faraway time and place, foggy towering castle filled with eerie gargoyles and scary sculptures, dark cliffs, raging seas, mazes, puzzles, hidden passageways, maps, the bridal covenant.... Gosh what more could you want?!

2.0 out of 5 stars Not up to scratch! Sept. 24 2002
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I first found Christine Feehan's work through 'Dark Prince'. It was an excellent read and has had me hooked on the whole series! I thought this book would be the same - not even close. The Scarlatti Curse is humdrum. Before I reached halfway I really didn't care about the characters. The secondary characters were underdeveloped and the main characters were two dimensional. I also did not get a feeling for the period or the place. In short it seemed like a short story plot that was enlarged to take advantage of her success with the Carpathian series. Please Christine don't write any more like this.
