“…this was as fun a ride as I was expecting.”
~ Under the Covers

I was both so anxious to read this book and at the same time scared.  First anxious because I loved the first book and couldn’t wait to continue the story.  But scared because I loved the first book and I didn’t want this one to disappoint me and then lose one of my new paranormal series to look forward to.  Rest assured, this was as fun a ride as I was expecting.

But also nothing like I thought it would be!  Sorcerers, pirates, traveling in the high seas, kidnapping, dragons, and another battle for a throne and the princess’s heart.  SO I MARRIED A SORCERER was packed full of entertainment.  The world building is, again, original and fresh and it gives us a different glimpse of this world than what we saw in the first book.  The plot and pacing are engaging and never dragging.  I was glued to this story.

And then there’s the characters.  Main and side characters alike, what a great cast this is.  Brigitta is one of the Embraced sisters from the Isle of Moon.  Her embraced power is being able to tell when someone is hiding secrets and finding lost items.  She knows pretty quickly that the evil pirate, Rupert, that has kidnapped her is hiding more than his fair share.  He also may be the man she’s supposed to marry because she can feel the connection between them.  While Brigitta and Rupert start out in opposite sides of Rupert’s revenge plans, their lives become intertwined in ways he wasn’t expecting.

I don’t want to give away what this is all about, so you’ll have to read it to find out.  I am so pleased with this novel because even though it was different than I thought it would be, it still delivered an amazing story with the exact feel that I wanted.  While this was more of a slow burn romance, Brigitta and Rupert had plenty of chemistry sizzling the pages.  The overall story arc kept me interested and since I’m so invested in the rest of the sisters, I cannot wait for the next one to find her love match.

About Kerrelyn Sparks

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.

I’m a 30 something sun lover living in the Big Apple (read New York).I’m a book and coffee addict and lover of all things elephants.

I get easily distracted by pictures of sexy guys and have tons of book boyfriends.I keep all my alpha males chained to my basement and guard them fiercely.*Back off bitches*I like to see Jason Momoa as a lot of those boyfriends, because ….. mmmmmmm JASON.MOMOA!

I’m a part time graphic designer (yes, everything you see on UTC has been done by me), run my husband's business from home and on a good day I’m a self appointed superwoman (she who can do it all).I love blogging with my girls and I couldn’t do it any other way!My first love is everything paranormal, but in the past few years I’ve re-learned to love contemporary romance.Every once in a while I like to mix things up with a historical romance, a steampunk or an LGBT book.Because I need variety to avoid book slumps.I don’t always need an HEA although I prefer one, and I love authors that can rip my heart out and make me ugly cry.

Lovely review. This book surprised me as well!! It was nothing like the first book, and I love that Sparks took me on a ride of twists with this one.

Maybe now I won’t be as worried about that on the next one. I think this author has the potential for being a favorite of mine.

These two came out so close together for me that I haven’t gotten to them yet. I can’t wait as I’ve been dying to try Kerrelyn Sparks, but her other series is so long it is intimidating!

I’m on the same boat with you about her other series. I was glad this series came out because of it. And it’s awesome! Hope you get to it soon and enjoy it.
