The Curse Keepers (The Curse Keeper #1) by Denise Grover Swank
The wall between our
world and that of vengeful spirits has protected humanity for more than
400 years. It’s about to come crashing down.
Ellie Lancaster has
lived her whole life by the site of the mysterious Lost Colony of
Roanoke, the Virginia settlement that vanished without a trace around
1590. Only the descendants of the two men who banished the spirits of an
enemy tribe from the material realm know what really happened to the
colony. Ellie is one of those descendants—a Curse Keeper. Her father
took pains to teach her what he knew of the curse and the
responsibilities of its guardians. He taught her that if the two Curse
Keepers ever meet, the curse will be lifted, the gate will open, and the
raging Native American spirits will be unleashed to seek their revenge.
her father’s seriousness, Ellie has always taken the legend for a
harmless fairy tale. Until she meets the darkly handsome, but downright
infuriating, Collin Dailey and realizes everything she was told is true.
For when they meet, it’s like the air is sucked from the room. Collin’s
presence is electrifying… and it’s not just attraction Ellie feels, but
the inexorable pull toward her destiny. The prophecy is real, and now
Ellie and Collin must battle supernatural forces and their loathing—and
passion—for each other to set things right.
The Curse Keepers are all that stand between the world and its destruction.

I've requested this book off on Netgallery, and I did an author interview which you can check out here Kitty Blitz: The Curse Keepers
What do you do when you find out that you're cursed? Your descendants have been doing this for years and now it's your turn. Ellie was going about her day when she meets the other Curse Keeper that she's has to work with in order to close the portal and save mankind. But Ellie doesn't believe in legends or curses even myths but then things starts to happen and she has no idea what to do next.
Collin Dailey knew that this one day will come but he didn't expect that the other Curse Keeper Ellie, would be so in the dark about the legend. But there's something else too, he's know as the player but Ellie doesn't really know that but he can't deny the spark between them.
Ellie and Collin will have to work together to get the portal close before it's too late, but can they when the enemy is always one step ahead and they also have to deal with how they feel for each other in the mist of it.
I freaking love this! I've never read a book that was both fiction and real life. The way she wrote it and how much deep history is into that it's kept so drawn into the story.
This is a little Bundle of Kittens, although I haven't read anything by Denise before, reading her newest book was great and I'll be rushing to read her other books as well the next book for Curse Keepers.
