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?
This book was AMAZING!! I cannot tell you how many times I had to stop reading to go, and tell my sister something that had made me laugh out loud.
The Embraced series brings us a whole new world where people who are born on the night of the two moons are blessed, or cursed, with powers. We meet our main character Luciana in a covenant on the Isle of Moon. One of the only safe places for people who are Embraced.
She has always thought she and her sisters (not blood related) were orphans but now her father has come to take her home after disaster has struck and he is left with no choice.
To save not only the life of her father but that of his people from the king’s ruthlessness Luciana agrees to go home with him, and marry the Beast of Benwick.
Lord Leofric, Leo for short, is one of the only Embraced that openly is out when it is a death sentence to be one.
Mostly because his uncle, the king, just can't seem to kill him. With his supernatural powers, and cunning, he has managed to stay alive this long being the Lord Protector of the realm. A duty that killed his father not to soon after being appointed so.
Outstanding. Amazing. I cannot praise this book enough! It gives the feel of the old historical romances I love so much but also has that paranormal edge and steamy chapters from books of today that just kept me turning page after page late into the night.
I would recommend How to Tame a Beast in Seven Days to anyone who is a fan of historical and paranormal romance. If you have not picked up a book by Kerrelyn Sparks; let this be your first one! You will not be disappointed!
I cannot wait for the next book in the series to come out, So I Married a Sorcerer,
