Scarlett soon discovers an erotic passion in the immortal's arms, but he's still determined to let her go.

Rose Wynters delivers something completely unique in the romance world (at least as far as anything I have ever read or heard of) an erotic romance with a Christian good vs evil theme. This is the second book in The Endurers series but can be read as a stand alone novel.
An Endurer is someone who was once mortal but made immortal in order to be warriors against demons and evil. Vincent is an Endurer and has been cursed by a powerful demon called Veronique to never find happiness with his soul mate, he has watched two soul mates perish and wants to die instead he is put in stasis for 200 years only to be awakened in the present day with a strange woman living in his house.
Scarlett has seen enough tragedy in her young life when she has to sit with her fiance as watch as he dies from cancer. When her fiance's family blames her and makes her feel miserable she decides to move on with her life by moving to New Orleans. When she finds an amazing deal on a house in the Garden District she snatches it up right away. Little does she know she is in great danger from the evil that is around her and that she has an Endurer warrior living hidden in her house.
Curvaceous Condemnation is part erotic romance, part christian romance however it isn't really preachy it is more of a have faith and God will provide. The erotic romance portion of this hot and spicy and in it we get to see the growth of Scarlett's self esteem and her acceptance of her curves.
“Veronique? They have names?”
“Yes, but don’t ever use their names. Ever. When a human uses their name, it makes them more powerful. It’s almost like worship to them, and worship gives them strength. An Endurer has protection against this, but you don’t. Never speak it, even if you know it.”
“Okay,” she replied. “You won’t have to tell me twice. How do you know her name?”
It was a question he had no intention of answering, at least not now. He wanted to bed her, badly. The last thing he needed to mention was women had died because of him. Somehow, he didn’t think that would help his cause. “It doesn’t matter. What does matter is freeing you from the curse.”
She remembered her parents and gasped, eyes widening with horror. “My mom and dad are coming for an overnight visit Saturday. What am I going to do?”
“Try to cancel. If you can’t, we’ll work around it. Who knows? Maybe we will have the curse broke by then.” He doubted it, but kept his doubts to himself. Where was Arch when you really needed him?
“I’m going to call a priest in to bless the house. Maybe he can shed some light on the situation,” Vincent continued gruffly. He was going to keep a better eye on her from here on out, no more midnight raids on her refrigerator unless she was with him.
His stomach rumbled at the thought of her cooking. The woman could cook like nobody’s business, and the leftovers were heavenly. His metabolism was extremely high due to the constant renewing of his body, and it gave him an extraordinarily high appetite.
The sound drew her attention, and she stared at him as he blushed in embarrassment. “Nice to know you really are human,” she said with a small smile. “At least now I know what’s been happening to my leftovers.”
“Sorry,” he replied sheepishly. “They were delicious.”
She felt strangely pleased that he liked her cooking. It was flattering. She was sure in his lifetime he’d had all types of food, but he enjoyed hers. “Well then, I guess I’ll be going to the store more often,” she said smiling, feeling the blush spreading across her cheeks.
Her arms began to ache, and she looked down to see what was wrong. In the light, she could see the dark purple bruises marring the paleness of her skin. They seemed to worsen by the minute.
He saw them too and growled. Moving quickly, he knelt in the floor in front of her, noting each and every purple spot. “The demon hurt you,” he said softly, but she could hear the anger in his tone. “For that, he will painfully die.”
Suddenly his mood changed. Slowly, he raised his head, his heated eyes meeting her dazed ones. He held her gaze for a moment before leaning forward and kissing each bruise.
He took his slow, sweet time, his firm lips highly erotic against her skin. She groaned softly at the tantalizing sweep of his tongue against each one. Her nipples beaded underneath the thin material of her nightgown in reaction.
His eyes glittered when he saw the visible response of her body to his mouth. The very air was charged with an erotic energy that singed both of them with its intensity. Her body grew hot with a burning need that demanded to be fulfilled.
He could sense it with his supernatural senses. He gave her a smile full of sexual promise. “I want to make love with you, Scarlett. Will you allow me?”
