New Series Alert...Beating VFG to the Punch!

Hey gang! Well, I'm busy writing, but not busy enough it seems! I found a new series that looks really cool, and I'm dying for July to get here. VFG from Lovin Me Some Romance blog ALWAYS gets the deets on covers, and series first. So, this time, I'm gonna beat her!

I would like to say that this little gem was found due to my stellar sleuthing abilities, but I'll admit that I saw it on Anna's To Read update at Goodreads. I was intrigued by the series title, and then I went to the author's website to learn more. I've been searching for a good historical fantasy, that's sexy and romantic. I hope this one fits the bill!

So, without further adieu........

Kathryne Kennedy's historical fantasy romances have garnered awards and a growing readership. This exciting new series, set against the lavish backdrops of Georgian and Victorian England so beloved by romance readers, is deliciously dark and exciting.

Fighting for control of a kingdom that is split into seven domains, Elven warlords use their human slaves to breed an endless supply of soldiers for their armies. Dominic Raikes, the half-blood son of the Elven Lord himself is one such warrior. Betrothed to Lady Cassandra, who has been raised in a convent to keep her pure, he little suspects that she's been secretly trained as an assassin to murder his father…and him. Dominic and Cassandra soon discover that each one is not what they seem, but the price of trust may be their very lives, and the destruction of the magical realm each is desperately trying to save…

What do think? Fun read? I think it could be sexy, too! You know me, the inner hussy NEEDS sexy!


  1. You go girl!!!! LMBO!!
    VFG does get the deets very quickly! So is as sly as a fox that woman!! Very good at what she does ~ uncovering what we have not found but need to find quickly!

    And this series does look very intriguing!

  2. ROFL, I absolutely heart Kathryne kennedy's Relic Of merlin series and this new series sounds uber good. This is so not good for me CC LOL Thanks for the heads up :)

  3. *bows down* You've beaten me Sophie. LOL!

    No, but seriously, this does look yummy. Going on the wish list now!

    Doesn't the cover kinda remind you of the faery/elvin community in the Lord of Rings movies?? I'm lovin' everything except for the white-grey hair...I'm not liken that so much.

    Good sleuthing Sophie!!

    I haven't read anything from this author, but this one is definitely going on my wish list!
