    The Woodsman and Sorcha are great!

    I had a great time with this book! I am a big fan of the Embraced series by Kerrelyn Sparks. It has been a while since a new book was released due to a change in publisher. The series also has a new name, Embraced by Magic, but it is a continuation of the previous series and I am sure that the name change has everything to do with having a new publisher. I couldn't wait to dive back into this world and follow the path of one of the sisters. I enjoyed this book from beginning to end. This book tells Sorcha's story and occurs shortly after the events of the previous book. It has been two years since I read that book so I didn't remember a lot of details about the previous books but everything is explained within this story so I had no trouble settling in. I do believe that this book could work as a stand-alone for readers new to the series. Sorcha's brother, Silas, and his wife, Gwennore, take a group to meet with her mother but it turns out to be a trap. Most escape back to their kingdom but Sorcha and Alexsi are left behind and taken captive. Alexsi is injured so Sorcha decides to break them out but receives unexpected help from the Woodsman. The Woodsman and his crew go to great lengths to keep Sorcha and Alexsi safe even though things are dangerous at times. I loved these characters. The Woodsman's abilities were incredibly interesting. I loved how he seemed capable of handling any situation without any trouble. He was such a kind man that really tried to do good wherever he could. Sorcha was equally amazing. She is tough and looks out for others. She is willing to risk everything for those that she cares about. I really enjoyed the secondary characters in this book as well. Alexsi plays an important role and it was fun to watch him grow over the course of the story. I liked the Woodsman and Sorcha together. I thought that they had great chemistry from the start which seemed to grow over the course of the story. I liked that they were honest with each other. I thought that the scenes with Alexsi and Sorcha together were very well done and I had a great time watching them fall in love. I would recommend this book to others. It was a fun romance that featured great characters and a wonderful fantasy world. I cannot wait to read more from this talented author. I received a digital review copy of this book from Kensington Books via NetGalley.

    Greatly enjoyed Sorcha's story.

    Until people are put to the test, you never know how much courage they have. So happy to read how she found her strength and confidence within. She is a wonderful heroine. Loved the Woodsman and can totally get the multiple reasons for his secrets. Side story of Aleksi was humorous and sweet. The villainess is evil to the core and cringe-worthy every scene she is in. Love how we get to read her perspective. The Chameleon and Lord Morris continue to be their deeply vile selves. Sorcha's interaction with the women of the village, especially with Tara, Hallie and Morghen was very well done and an integral part of Sorcha's personality. Love how Sorcha's opinion of elves has a journey and there is an explanation of why. How to Love Your Elf was an adventure with twists, surprise, betrayal, loyalty, curiosity, sorrow, joy, cowardice, bravery, puzzles, success, love conquering all, answers that were revealed and more questions for the future book. Maeve is next and I am excited to read the final adventure. Fabulous that it will be in my hands by the end of August.

    Forest Whispers

    If Paranormal Romances are your passion don't miss anything written by Kerrelyn Sparks. I have read her vampire series years ago - So long ago I don't have them listed on my Goodreads site. More recently I have become a huge fan of her Embraced Series and followed this story line that is very unique. Some story board challenges must have been involved in this endeavor because while "How to Love Your Elf is a part of the Embraced Series it seems to start a new linked series Embraced by Magic. Her pages are full of all things that make a a fantasy romance GREAT! This tale tells the meeting of Sorcha who is sister to a dragon. And... the Woodsman who is an Elf with powers to hear the Forest and telegraph news to others with his ability. "A copy of this book was provided by Kensington Books via Netgalley with no requirements for a review. Comments here are my honest opinion." Hope the next in this series "Siren & the Deep Blue Sea" publishes soon.

    Sorcha bothered me a little in this book

    I am a fan of this author from way back. I love when a new book comes out, and I dived right into this one. I remember Sorcha from another series (this is sort of a book in that series), and I liked her in that series. I’m still on the fence about how I feel about her in this one (more on that in a minute). This book still has the great writing I’ve come to expect from this author, and I loved the plot. The characters were all good too, but for some reason, Sorcha just annoyed me in parts of this book. She would at times seem independent, but then be obsessed over the Woodsman and ruin that. However, this didn’t detract too much from the book, and I still enjoyed it. I would read the other books in the series to get a better feel, though, for this one. Recommend.
