Sixty Seconds of Magical Romance

Today I'd like to share the book video for my upcoming release, THE LADY OF THE STORM, in case you didn't catch it on my website. I enjoy making these, and I hope you enjoy watching it. Hmm, even better, I hope it makes you want to read the book, and spend hours in my magical world of adventure, instead of only a few seconds. :}

Publishers Weekly gives lovely review to THE LADY OF THE STORM

The Lady of the Storm
Kennedy follows July's The Fire Lord's Lover with a slower-paced romantic fantasy set in a medieval England that has been invaded by evil elves from another world. Wholeheartedly devoted to the human rebellion, Giles Beaumont reluctantly agrees to guard Cecily Sutton, the daughter of a human woman and an elven lord. Cecily is the Rebellion's secret weapon, but all she wants is to live quietly like a human. As the war heats up, Cecily is forced to learn how to control the magical abilities that terrify her. Giles tries to resist his attraction to Cecily, but soon the two are deeply in love. Fantastical creatures, magical spells, lengthy quests, angst, and passion will satisfy readers looking for a romance plot in a well-developed fantasy setting. (Aug.)

Booklist gives starred review to THE LADY OF THE STORM


Issue: June 1, 2011

The Lady of the Storm.

Kennedy, Kathryne (Author)

Aug 2011. 416 p. Sourcebooks/Casablanca, paperback, $7.99. (9781402236532).

Cecily Sutton’s adoptive father is off fomenting rebellion against the elven lords who rule England. He asked blacksmith Giles Beaumont to watch over Cecily, which has become increasingly difficult as Gileshas fallen for her and since she loves to swim in the ocean nude. Cecily is in danger because she is half elf; if her strong, water-linked powers were to become known, she would be executed. After a deadly raid on the village, she and Giles set out to find her missing father. Kennedy’s exquisite world building and terrific plotting make this a must-read for fantasy fans as well as readers who like sizzling romance. Kennedy creates a satisfying, fully realized world where adventure abounds and conflict and relationships are consistent and believable. While this tale of danger, suspense, magic, and passion stands firmly on its own, it is the second in Kennedy’s thrilling and distinctive Elven Lords series.
