Nick gets in trouble with a man who won't take "no" for an answer. Lord Bane Dunsaney comes to his rescue. But does the mysterious billionaire pose a greater danger to Nick than the one he saved him from?

As expected from X. Aratare, another wonderful, cute, and never shy story. I read the original Cursed and loved it very much and to hear this one was amazing.
Michael Pauley is an amazing narrator too! Oh, I enjoyed listening to him unfold the story. I love how his voice changes. I especially love it when he reads Bane's part, it was believable!
There are some parts where it got kind of awkward with the narrating, but I still enjoyed the story very much.
Thank you for existing X. Aratare and Michael Pauley!
this was a good story although the narrator sounded like a news reporter at times I appreciated the effort, like when the story said a character laughed...he laughed, but this was a good short story and it made me want to get the actual book.
Reader, Writer, Lover of all things. Open minded and accepting, tolerant and understanding. All things are beautiful even the horrific truth
I cannot find words enough to say how very much I love this story and these characters. I have read the retelling and this side story was like a druggie getting their fix until the other story gets finished. Sooooo looking forward to that but this is a good fix and not to be missed. Enjoy the story it's worth it and then some.
