Cursed by Jennifer Chance

Cursed: Gowns & Crowns, Book 5 by [Chance, Jennifer]Book Description:
When the prince she was supposed to marry falls for someone else, Edeena Saleri is done with Garronia's courts, crowns, and family curses. She grabs her sisters and escapes to the nobility-free coast of South Carolina, USA.

Refuge isn't anything like it's supposed to be, however. The family's island vacation home now borders a singles' retreat, which Edeena's sisters embrace all too eagerly. Worse, the private protection firm Edeena hires is run by the most infuriating man she's ever met--a rough-hewn, dark-eyed, charismatic charmer named, of course, Prince. He's not a royal and he's nowhere near noble, so there's no way he can break the family curse. And yet...

Vincent "Prince" Rallis has spent his whole life justifying his name. The son of hardworking immigrant parents, he's hustled for every dime, finally building a personal security firm with the muscle and grit to live up to its promises. He's used to keeping his cool, but when the high-strung, high-class Edeena shuts him down despite her obvious interest, pride demands he fight for her--even if he has to track her back to her glittering court to prove his point. Only once Prince arrives in the seaside kingdom of Garronia, he finds his troubles are just beginning.

Sometimes love in Garronia can be magic. And sometimes you're just Cursed.

My Thoughts:
I liked this one.  Edeena is determined to save her sisters from her father's ideas of the family curse.  She takes them away to her mother's favorite retreat when she were living and it will be their vacation.  Neither sister knows what she is planning and both would object.  When she meets the head of the security team he hired, there is instant attraction.  Still she needs to find a prince to marry and break the curse.
I loved Vincent, he is the tall dark and handsome hero that everyone wants.  He is also determined that Edeena shouldn't throw her life away.  Edeena is great.  She wants so bad to protect her sisters from everything that she is willing to sacrifice her freedom and happiness to achieve that.  I liked the attraction and the family interaction (except for the father).  The aunt/cousin was a favorite as well.
It was a 4/5 for me and I hope to read books about these sisters soon!!
