How to Love Your Elf

The Embraced Book 4

How to Love Your Elf

Kensington Publishing

Raised in isolation on the magic-shrouded Isle of the Moon, five girls became five sisters. Now women, they are ready to claim their places in the world—and perhaps change it forever . . .


Sorcha knew the mission was dangerous. Leaving the safe grounds of her brother’s kingdom and parlaying with the elves across their border . . . well, treachery seemed at least as likely as true peace. But to support her sister, Sorcha would brave far more than the underhanded ways of the elves. Or so she thought, before she was taken hostage.

Of course, her captors didn’t count on her particular abilities—or on the help of the Woodsman, the mysterious thief who made his home in the forest. He saw the battle from the trees, saw the soldier attacking against incredible odds to save a comrade—and then saw the valiant fighter revealed as Princess Sorcha of Norveshka. He can’t tell if he wants to kidnap her or kiss her. But despite Sorcha’s stubbornness, his inconvenient honor, and a rebellion on the cusp of full war, something burns between them that neither can let go . . .

Note from Kerrelyn:

You may be wondering why there is such a long wait between books 3 and 4 of the Embraced series. The answer is simple—the publisher who published the first 3 books declined to finish the series. I was determined, however, to complete the series for my readers, and that meant I had to find a new publisher. I did—Kensington! I am grateful that they were willing to pick up a series midstream, but of course, whenever an author goes to a new publisher, he/she is automatically placed at the end of a publishing schedule that has been planned far in advance. So book 4 ended up with a release date in February 2020. Fortunately, book 5 will not have such a long wait.

Since a new publishing house will be producing the last two books, they needed to change the name of the series. The last two books will be part of the Embraced by Magic series, books 1 and 2 for the new publisher.  But for the rest of us, they are the last two books of the Embraced series. Thank you for your patience as we wait for How to Love your Elf (Sorcha’s story) and the final book, which will belong to Maeve and Brody.
