Lucky Charm

Long ago, as revenge on a Corwin who stole her son's fiancée, a witch proclaimed an eternal curse that every Corwin male who married for love would be destined to lose his woman and his fortune…
Derek thought he could outsmart the long-standing Corwin curse by breaking up with Gabrielle, his first love—and marrying someone else. Now, divorced and broke, all he has left is his teenage daughter and a healthy respect for ancient sorcery. But then Gabrielle returns, determined to defeat the curse and rekindle their passion. But will her stubborn streak and her unwavering love be the lucky charm Derek so desperately needs?

The concept of a curse that only involves the male line of a family was interesting, but I have major problems with the execution. I found Derek to be an idiot and Gabrielle an even bigger one.

I really hate that there isn't anything nice that I can say about this book. Truly I do.
