The Kiss Curse

Erin Sterling takes us back to Graves Glen for a fall rom-com you'll swoon over!

This paranormal romance picks up about a year after the events of The Ex Hex and features spirited Gwyn and devastatingly handsome Wells. I adored Gwyn in The Ex Hex, so revisiting the cozy small town of Graves Glen to read her story was a lot of fun! And I think I liked this one even better than the first.

Enemies to lovers romance, baby witches, Halloween vibes, snappy dialogue, a dash of danger, and some steam made this the cute Fall rom-com I've been craving lately!

The dual POV, fast-paced story with an entertaining plot, kept me turning the pages. New lovable side characters like baby witches (who get into some shenanigans) and old faves from the first book populate the story with paranormal charm. But then, there's a scene-stealing talking cat. All treat, no trick!

If you're looking for a spooky season romance, you'll want to add this to your tbr when it publishes on September 20, 2022.

Thank you to NetGalley, Avon & Harper Voyager for the opportunity to review this ARC. I really enjoyed it!

My steep was my favorite chai tea, All Chai'd Up from The Chai Box. This delicious blend and several others are available online at


The follow-up to Erin Sterling's New York Times bestselling hit The Ex Hex features fan favorite Gwyn and the spine-tinglingly handsome Wells Penhallow as they battle a new band of witches and their own magical chemistry.

Gwyn Jones is perfectly happy with her life in Graves Glen. She, her mom, and her cousin have formed a new and powerful coven; she's running a successful witchcraft shop, Something Wicked; and she's started mentoring some of the younger witches in town. As Halloween approaches, there's only one problem—Llewellyn "Wells" Penhallow.

Wells has come to Graves Glen to re-establish his family's connection to the town they founded as well as to make a new life for himself after years of being the dutiful son in Wales. When he opens up a shop of his own, Penhallow's, just across the street from Something Wicked, he quickly learns he's gotten more than he bargained for in going up against Gwyn.

When their professional competition leads to a very personal—and very hot—kiss, both Wells and Gwyn are determined to stay away from each other, convinced the kiss was just a magical fluke. But when a mysterious new coven of witches come to town and Gwyn's powers begin fading, she and Wells must work together to figure out just what these new witches want and how to restore Gwyn's magic before it's too late.
