    Fantasy Romance - Loved It!

    How to Tame a Beast in Seven Days by Kerrelyn Sparks The Embraced #1 Loved this introduction to a wonderful new paranormal fantasy series filled with romance, intrigue, wondrous beasts and delightful characters. I found the prologue provided just enough information to set the hook that led me into the story. My guess is that the five sisters of the heart mentioned in chapter one will each get a book of their own and I look forward to reading each and every one of their stories. In book one Luciana learns she is not an orphan after all and has the opportunity to save her father’s life IF she is willing to return with him to his castle and marry Leo, The Beast of Benwick. With her skills of communing with ghosts, the need to keep her identity secret and an upcoming marriage to a man who can kill with a touch she is not sure what will happen but is willing to do what she can to save her father and his people. With assassins out to get her, ghosts telling her secrets and her growing attraction to Leo her life is never dull. Leo is equally attracted to his bride to be BUT worries that he won’t ever be able to touch her let alone consummate their marriage. This is a fun adult romance that has everything I like in a book. I was taken back to fairytales of childhood but with a more grownup story to read. I smiled at interactions, worried about characters, hoped that the hero and heroine would manage a HEA and am now eager to find out what will happen in future books of this series because this one was so very very entertaining. I would like to thank NetGalley and St. Martin’s Press for the ARC. This is my honest review. 5 Stars

    Magical New Series

    Luciana Vintello has been brought up in a convent as an orphan. She and the other girls on the island consider themselves sisters. The reason for Luciana being hidden since birth soon becomes apparent. Her special gifts will be very valuable when her new life starts. Leofric of Benwick is the Lord Protector of the realm and nephew to a devious king. He is also known as the beast because he can kill with just a simple touch. His gift has caused him pain and torment all his life. This is set in a fantasy land with four kingdoms who are always at war. It will take a lot of magic from the "Embraced" to bring peace to just this one of the kingdoms. Lots of wonderful adventure and what looks at first like a hopeless love story. Secrets and political intrigue spice it up nicely. This is obviously the first book in a series and I can't wait to read the next one. I loved it.

    How to Tame a Beast in Seven Days

    How To Tame a Beast in Seven Days was a fantastic book. Set in a fantasy world, it pulled on my roots of high fantasy reading and made them proud. A world that is detailed and vibrant, with people to go right along with it. There are even dragons!!!! Combine that with a beautifully arranged marriage style romance, I think I found a truly winning series. The Embraced are a group of people born under a certain moon and grow up to be blessed/cursed with strange and sometimes terrifying powers. Luciana is an orphan growing up on the Isle of the Moon, the one place where Embraced are not feared and reviled. She was sent there to protect her from those that would kill her for what she is. She loves the island and her 'sisters,' but when her father (surprise!) shows up, she finds out that her history is completely different than what she believed. Returning with her father to the mainlands, Luciana will have to convince the world that she is another person as she prepares to marry the Beast of Benwick, a man rumored to kill all who come near. And so begins our romance. Of course, the Beast has a surprising history and personality. I'm wasn't sure how Kerrelyn Sparks was going to get these characters together for a while. Everything was stacked against them and both were terrified of what might happen. There are some crazy twists and turns as Luciana and the Beast travel to the capital. Attacks, deaths, discoveries, and along the way we get to meet some really great secondary characters that I feel just might show up with a story of their own - I certainly hope so. While I enjoy a good twisting tale, there were a few times that it seemed like a twist was thrown into drag the story out just a tad, and then we had a bit of a rushed ending. Overall, I loved the world, I loved the characters, and I can't wait to see what they are going to do next. **I voluntarily read a review copy of this book**

    Loved It!

    How to Tame a Beast in Seven Days 'How to Tame a Beast in Seven Days' by Kerrelyn Sparks is book One in the "The Embraced" series. This is the story of Luciana and Leo. I must say this book hooked me in pretty fast and I could not put it down...I had to read it until I was done. What a great book to start what appears to be a great Series by Ms. Sparks!Luciana grew up on Isle of Moon along with a few other girls with special powers. They are all close and feel like sister but each one is starting to have their own adventure and to deal with their unknown past. Luciana father comes for her a man she never met or knew that he was alive. But her father needs her now to save him, his land and his people. Luciana finds that she is the key to a marriage that will save her father and all that he holds dear. But Luciana learns she must pretend to be her sister who is now dead. Can Luciana pretend to be her sister who other than looks... has no similar trait?Leo is known as the Beast because he is rumored to have killed his mother and nanny along with others. The King wants him to marry. But Leo knows there is a reason behind it, as the King is evil. Leo fears that he would hurt his future wife if he touches her but he finds her so attractive that he is having a hard time dealing with his fear. Luciana too finds Leo attractive and worries that her secrets will become an issue.Leo was a strong, hurt yet loving with an Alpha Male attitude toward Luciana. I loved watching these too come together. I so loved the secondary characters and hope to see their story next!!"My honest review is for a special copy I voluntarily
