Product description


"The thrills and tension really ramp up....  [DeWees's] understanding of the qualities that make up gothic romance surpasses many, and her ability to blend all these attributes into something that is still new and gripping is really excellent." --Peyton, Goodreads

"As with any DeWees book, you are treated to
beautifully written prose, excellent plotting and great characterization. . . . There's a curse at work here, all right. The kind that makes a book impossible to put down." --Miss Ruby Jones, Sweet Rocket

"Once again Amanda DeWees has created
a story that I just can't stop reading. . . . As far as a good Gothic Romance goes, you won't find much better than this." --Jessica, The Modest Verge (five-star review)

"Ms. DeWees has woven her words with
such beauty as to almost seem poetic at times.  The characters are developed with a depth and understanding that allows readers to become a part of the very story themselves. . . . [A] feast for the eye and a joy to devour!" --Ruth Lynn Ritter, InD'Tale magazine (

From the Author

I grew up loving the traditional gothic romances of Victoria Holt and Daphne du Maurier, as well as the Victorian romantic suspense novels of Barbara Michaels... and of course their prototype, Charlotte Bronte's Jane Eyre. The combination of romance, mystery, sinister atmosphere, and (often) a fascinating historical setting addicted me. At the same time, there's a kind of innocence to them, perhaps a throwback to the "Beauty and the Beast" fairy tale, which seems to echo through the classic gothic romance plot. If you enjoy the suspense and romantic sweep of gothic novels--or if you're looking for a sweet historical romance that you won't have to hide when your kids (or parents) walk into the room--With This Curse may be just the book you'll enjoy curling up with on a rainy afternoon or chilly evening!

Atlanta author Amanda DeWees wrote her doctoral dissertation on 19th-century vampire literature, the perfect training (although she didn’t realize it at the time) for writing Victorian gothic romance novels. These include With This Curse, which won the 2015 Daphne du Maurier Award for historical mystery/suspense, and Sea of Secrets, a reimagining of Shakespeare’s Hamlet that won the 2012 RONE award in mystery. Her other works include the Ash Grove Chronicles, a young adult paranormal romance series set in modern-day North Carolina.

Besides writing, Amanda's passions include theater, movies, costume design, and Chris Evans, not necessarily in that order. Visit her at for book extras and other delightful diversions.
