PRESS RELEASE: Romance Novel Heroes Sprout Pointy Ears

Kathryne Kennedy’s bestselling book series adds new dimension to paranormal romances.

Naperville, IL (PRWEB) August 16, 2011

The subgenre of historical fantasy has taken the romance novel industry by storm, and that is nowhere more apparent than in Kathryne Kennedy’s new series, The Elven Lords. With heroes inspired by the elves of Tolkien’s The Lord of the Rings, we can add pointed ears to the rising popularity of romance novel heroes sporting wings, fangs, and other paranormal elements.

“The devotion of my readers is remarkable,” says Kennedy. “My heroes and world seem to capture their imaginations and hearts.”

In Kennedy’s new release The Lady of the Storm (Sourcebooks Casablanca; ISBN 9781402236532; $7.99; August 2011) readers will lose themselves in a gorgeous love story set in a lush world made of equal parts wonder and danger in a kingdom viciously ruled by warlike elven lords. Village blacksmith Giles Beaumont reluctantly swears to protect the half-elf, half-human Cecily Sutton, never dreaming that he will fall under her enchanting spell. But when Cecily's father disappears, Cecily and Giles set out to find him, and as their journey unfolds, duty is quickly replaced by desire--and the search for Cecily's father leads to a magical destiny that could end the rule of the elven lords forever.

The Lady of the Storm has already received critical acclaim. Booklist gave it a starred review and said “Kennedy's exquisite world building and terrific plotting make this a must-read for fantasy fans as well as readers who like sizzling romance.” Publishers Weekly said “Fantastical creatures, magical spells, lengthy quests, angst, and passion will satisfy readers looking for a romance plot in a well-developed fantasy setting.”

Although it is a stand-alone title, The Lady of the Storm follows the first book in The Elven Lords series, The Fire Lord’s Lover, which hit several bestsellers’ lists and has garnered awards and critical acclaim. The next novel in the series, The Lord of Illusion, is scheduled for release February 2012.
