History records the ill-fated love shared by Ludwig van Beethoven and Countess Josephine Brunsvik. In this free prequel, the two are thwarted not only by social conventions, but also by the Curse.
Cursed Love is the short prequel to The Passion of Elena Bianchi. The narrative is at once both historical and paranormal romance, focusing on the ill-fated love of Ludwig van Beethoven and Countess Josephine Brunsvik. The couple meet in 1799, by which time the composer is also becoming aware of his hearing problems. Sensing that he is under some sort of "curse," Beethoven visits a fortune-teller. During that session, he learns that he must write the sonata that will bring lovers together many decades later.
