Growing up on the Isle of Moon, Brigitta knows nothing of her past, except that she is Embraced: born with powers that forced her into hiding. Everything changes when she learns she’s a princess, hidden away from her villainous half-brother who now rules the kingdom. But he knows about Brigitta, and he’ll do anything to get her back. Unless a certain roguish pirate has anything to say about it…

Rupert is both an infamous pirate and a sorcerer with the power to harness the wind. He’s been waiting nineteen years for revenge—and he needs Brigitta to get it. What begins as a kidnapping of the fiery beauty turns into a fierce attraction. But can he win the captive princess’s heart?


This was such a delightful read! In a similar vein as How to Tame a Beast in Seven Days, it’s a fluffy and cute paranormal/fantasy romance with characters that are just so freak’n adorable. I’m not sure why I was surprised by how light the tone of the story is (maybe because it’s a fantasy?) but it definitely was a good surprise.

The story and adventure is fun and action-packed. Brigitta ends up being kidnapped by the Dread pirate Rupert, there’s adventuring out on the sea and when Brigitta finds out she’s actually a long lost princess, we have some suitors battling it out to win her hand.

I loved the chemistry between Brigitta and Rupert. Okay, I’ll admit, it’s a bit insta-love but they’re very very cute! The awkward flirting and the sweet moments were spot on and I liked that they were able to connect on a deeper level. And I love that Rupert was a charmer when he needed to be.

Rupert’s revenge story (and cool powers) adds to the plot and creates a little big of an obstacle to a happily ever after (along with Brigitta’s villainous brother. And yay! More Brody! I was so very happy to see more of Brody and definitely cannot wait for his story! Actually, all the secondary characters were pretty awesome (unless they were the bad guys, ha).

Overall, So Married a Sorcerer is cute, fluffy, fantasy fun! This was definitely a fun addition to the series. If you enjoyed the first book, you’ll have a fun time with this, too!

“Oh, I’m scared.”
He took a step towards her, his eye gleaming. “You should be.”
She moved back. “Aye, the tidy pirate might capture me and wash my clothes.”
His mouth twitched. “I’d have to remove them first.”

About Kerrelyn Sparks

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.
