New Releases

Publication Day – New Release – Book Birthday

Hello Everyone,

Today, I am very excited to announce the release of How To Love Your Elf, the latest book from Kerrelyn Sparks in her amazing fantasy romance series – Embraced by Magic. I love Kerrelyn’s writing style and couldn’t resist the opportunity to help spread the word about her latest book.

I was lucky enough to receive an advance e-copy of How To ove Your Elf from Kerrelyn’s new publishers and really enjoyed it – you can read my review here. I hope that you decide to add this book to your cascading TBR pile post haste. 😉


How To Love Your Elf (Embrace by Magic #1, The Embraced #4) by Kerrelyn Sparks

How To Love Your Elf by Kerrelyn Sparks

Raised in isolation on the magic-shrouded Isle of the Moon, five girls became five sisters. Now women, they are ready to claim their places in the world—and perhaps change it forever . . .


Sorcha knew the mission was dangerous. Leaving the safe grounds of her brother’s kingdom and parlaying with the elves across their border . . . well, treachery seemed at least as likely as true peace. But to support her sister, Sorcha would brave far more than the underhanded ways of the elves. Or so she thought, before she was taken hostage.

Of course, her captors didn’t count on her particular abilities—or on the help of the Woodsman, the mysterious thief who made his home in the forest. He saw the battle from the trees, saw the soldier attacking against incredible odds to save a comrade—and then saw the valiant fighter revealed as Princess Sorcha of Norveshka. He can’t tell if he wants to kidnap her or kiss her. But despite Sorcha’s stubbornness, his inconvenient honor, and a rebellion on the cusp of full war, something burns between them that neither can let go . . .

Buy HOW TO LOVE YOUR ELF (or catch up with the whole series) in print and eBook formats through the usual sources, including:

Amazon UK ¦ Amazon US ¦ The Book Depository ¦ Waterstones

(I am part of Amazon , AudibleThe Book DepositoryFoyles Book Shop and Waterstones affiliate programmes, which means when you use those links to buy a copy of this book, I will get a (very) small % from the sale.)

Due to a change in publishers, Kerrelyn posted this on her website to explain the need to change the series name:

You may be wondering why there is such a long wait between books 3 and 4 of the Embraced series. The answer is simple—the publisher who published the first 3 books declined to finish the series. I was determined, however, to complete the series for my readers, and that meant I had to find a new publisher. I did—Kensington! I am grateful that they were willing to pick up a series midstream, but of course, whenever an author goes to a new publisher, he/she is automatically placed at the end of a publishing schedule that has been planned far in advance. So, book 4 ended up with a release date in February 2020. Fortunately, book 5 will not have such a long wait.

Since a new publishing house will be producing the last two books, they needed to change the name of the series. The last two books will be part of the Embraced by Magic series, books 1 and 2 for the new publisher.  But for the rest of us, they are the last two books of the Embraced series. Thank you for your patience as we wait for How to Love your Elf (Sorcha’s story) and the final book, which will belong to Maeve and Brody.

Kerrelyn Sparks

Kerrelyn Sparks apparently has issues with reality. After writing more than a dozen books about vampires, she has now completely gone off the deep end and wound up on another planet. But how thrilling that she can share this magical new world with her readers! Although she 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.

To learn more about her paranormal, historical, and upcoming out-of-this-world fantasy romances, please visit Kerrelyn on Facebook, Twitter or her website.

Kerrelyn loves hearing from readers, even those who howl at the moon. Letters may be sent to P.O. Box 5512, Katy, TX 77491-5512. If you would like bookmarks and signed bookplates, please mail a Self-Addressed Stamped Envelope to her P.O. Box, and she will send those items to you.

Thank you for stopping by and for taking the time to read this post. I hope that I’ve tempted you to add this book to your ever growing TBR pile.

Bye for now. x
