RELEASE DAY REVIEW: How to Tame a Beast in Seven Days by Kerrelyn Sparks

Kerrelyn Spark’s previous series, Love at Stake, constantly hit the New York Times bestseller list and created a massive fan following for her witty vampires. With the end of her vampire series, comes the start of an extraordinary new fantasy romance series called The Embraced beginning with HOW TO TAME A BEAST IN SEVEN DAYS.

Set in a medieval mythical world, the series explores a special group of people with powers born when the two moons of the world form an eclipse. In the start of the series we meet Luciana, who can speak to the dead, and the Beast of Benwick who can controlling lightening.

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?

Filled with romance, humor, and a beautifully imagined new world, HOW TO TAME A BEAST IN SEVEN DAYS is a fantasy in the vein of Game of Thrones with all the fun of The Princess Bride. Luciana is a vibrant leading lady that will have readers rooting for her spunk and devotion to her family while the Beast is a swoon worthy hero worth taming.

Lydia's Review

I'm a big fan of paranormal and this author is very quickly becoming one of my new favorites this year.

One special woman sent to marry a man that she can't even touch. Lucia has a gift, she is Embraced. He comes for her and drops a bombshell: she must marry the man that everyone refers to as a beast or lose her magic and her father. Lucia is so sweet and loyal and innocent that of course she agrees.

Leo finds that she is not the selfish girl that he was told to expect. Leo is also Embraced... he can't touch others because his power draws lightning. Leo and Lucia go in circles around each other with the attraction they have but can't act on because of his gift.

I kept turning the pages on this one... dying to know what was going to happen next and when all the secrets would come out. This was such a good story and I'm so impatient for the next book in this series! How to Tame the Beast in Seven Days was a solid 5 stars for me.

About the Author:
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.
