Kerrelyn Sparks crafts a gripping premise with this first
in her new Embraced
series, HOW TO TAME A BEAST IN
Raised as an orphan on a remote island, a mysterious
visitor changes Luciana's life. Thrown into a wildly
different situation, Luciana must leave her sisters in
spirit behind, and do her best to change who she appears
to be without losing herself. Lord Leo on the other hand
is fighting to protect his country's borders, while also
obeying his cruel father's dictates to wed.
Sparks has given her characters paranormal super powers
while setting them in a fantasy world rife with castles,
kings, elves and dragons. With its light-hearted soda pop
fairy tale vibe HOW TO TAME A BEAST IN SEVEN DAYS will be
a welcome change from the darker urban fantasies that are
so prevalent. For those of us who have been missing a
lighter form of
romantic fantasy, it's PERFECT!
Perhaps best known for her vampire Love at
Sparks has also written a few historical romances (where
her skill with humorous writing still shines.) HOW TO TAME
A BEAST IN SEVEN DAYS is a frothy fantasy romance, with
enough suspense to keep you turning pages without having
to sleep with the light on. (Not to mention plenty of
passionate love scenes.)
Book two in the Embraced
series, SO I MARRIED A
SORCERER, is due out August 29th, 2017. I can't wait!
From the brilliant imagination of Kerrelyn Sparks comes a
bold new fantasy romance series in which passion and magic
collide. Behold the Embraced...
As one of the
Embraced—one born with magical powers—the beautiful,
innocent Luciana escaped certain death after her father hid
her away on the Isle of Moon. Now, nineteen years later, her
father has returned with a frightening request. He will be
executed unless Luciana returns to the mainland and marries
a man feared throughout the land: a terrifying brute known
as the Beast.
Luciana accepts her fate and agrees to
wed the Beast—Lord Leo—in order to save her father. Soon she
learns that her betrothed is also one of the Embraced. With
the ability to wield lightning, Leo’s immense power strikes
fear into the hearts of men. . .and his mere touch can put
an end to a woman’s life. But Luciana cannot deny the
passion that burns between them. How can she resist the man
who scorches her soul and makes her feel intoxicated with
desire—even if surrendering to him could destroy them both?
