How to Tame a Beast in Seven DaysKerrelyn Sparks
fantasy, romance > paranormal romance
Luciana grew up on the Isle of Moon, hidden away because of her magical powers. But when her father arrives, he offers her a choice: remain on the island or return with him and marry the Beast of Benwick in order to save their legacy — and her father's life.
Lord Leofric, the Beast of Benwick, has not been touched since he was a child. Born with the power to harness lightning, he is a danger to everyone he touches. When he meets his betrothed, he expects a loveless, lonely marriage... until he discovers she's vastly more powerful than he realized. But is she strong enough to withstand his touch?
If they can survive, their love will alter the future of the kingdom. But will their extraordinary powers cost them everything?
Apparently, she has issues with reality. After writing 16 books about vampires and shifters, Kerrelyn has now completely gone off the deep end and wound up on another planet.
Although Kerrelyn is best known (so far) for the Love at Stake series, which has hit as high as number 5 on the New York Times list and 22 on the USA Today list, she hopes her readers will love The Embraced as much as they did her merry band of vamps and shifters.
Kerrelyn lives with her family in the Greater Houston area of Texas.
The Embraced :: Series
Game of Thrones meets The Princess Bride in this paranormal/fantasy series with romance, humor, action, adventure, more romance, suspense, swordfights, a medieval-type world, heroes who can parkour, lots of laughs, and even more romance.
The series is set on a different world - a world with humans, dragons, elves, shifters, and the Embraced. Who are the Embraced? This world happens to have two moons, and twice a year, the two moons eclipse (or as the people there say, embrace). Any child born on those nights will have some kind of paranormal power. They are called the Embraced.
The kings of this world consider them a threat. After all, the Embraced have powers that the kings can never have. So the kings dispatch assassins to kill them. Obviously, if you’re Embraced, you want to keep it secret! But what happens if you need to use your supernatural power?
