Half-human daughter of the Elven lord of Sea and Sky, Cecily Sutton has been raised in hiding. But when an attack on her village leaves her mother dead and her adoptive father missing, Cecily must turn the village blacksmith to help find him.
Giles Beaumont is stuck in a role he never wanted. He longs for action and adventure, but settles for his role as a blacksmith in a provincial village-all the while guarding Cecily from the shadows. Having sworn an oath to her stepfather to keep her safe, Giles has no other choice but to follow after Cecily as she sets out to find him.
But duty is quickly replaced with desire as the search for Cecily's stepfather leads to a magical destiny that could end the rule of the Elven Lords.
The perfect blend of fantasy, romance, and adventure, The Lady of the Storm is an adventurous romance. Readers of Karen Monin, Sherrilyn Kenyon, Kresley Cole, and Diane Duval will be excited to follow Cecily and Giles on their perilous journey and be fascinated as they uncover the deep, dark connection that binds one to the other.

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.)
