From the brilliant imagination of Kerrelyn Sparks comes a bold new fantasy romance series in which passion and magic collide. Behold the Embraced…

Gwennore has a talent. An Elf able to track down the cause of an illness and heal it, she’s a valuable asset to her people. But when the kidnapping of a young girl thrusts Gwennore into the very heart of the realm of the dragons, she discovers not only a place of power and magic, but also a haunted land, plagued by an ancient curse that all but ensures extinction to the royal family. But when she meets the smoldering General Silas Dravenko, they strike a bargain—save the country from its cursed illness, and he will return the kidnapped girl. She’s been raised never to trust a dragon, but never did making a deal with the devil feel so good…

Silas has no way of curing the family he’s loyally served for years. But when a beautiful elf, long considered the enemy of the dragons, comes bursting into his world, Silas is awakened to passion and desire in a way he’s never felt before. But can he trust a sworn enemy to save the very existence he holds dear? And can their love survive those that threaten to tear them apart?


Gwennore is really sad about all the prejudice she has faced since she left the convent island that she and her sisters grew up on.  Everywhere she goes she hears them talking about her because she is an Elf,  and they are known to be vicious killers.  Looking after the children will save her from hearing the talk. 
General Dravenko is trying to stop the war with the kingdom of the Elves and now someone has done something that could start a new war with two of the other kingdoms.  His country will never survive more problems.  They have so many now.  The curse most believe in has taken a huge toll. 

Our heroine is a healer with a special gift, and exceptional hearing.  Our hero is much more than he seems, and keeps many secrets for the safety of everyone in his kingdom.
We have lots of great characters that give us laughs as well as magical adventures. There is danger all around. 
This is part of a series that is best read in order. I have read them all so far and thoroughly enjoyed all of them.  Each has it's own story,  relationship, and ending but link together to follow each other.  I can't wait for the next one. 



Kerrelyn Sparks apparently has issues with reality. After writing more than a dozen books about vampires, she has now completely gone off the deep end and wound up on another planet. But how thrilling that she can share this magical new world with her readers! Although she 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.
