From New York Times bestselling author Katy Regnery comes her first duo of paranormal romances!
ONCE UPON A TIME...the most beautiful boy in the world kissed me.I've never been able to forget.Perhaps it was his jet-black hair,or the changing copper-color of his eyes,the intense way he looked at me...or the fact that he awakened my passion for the first time,at once otherworldly yet heartbreakingly real.
After that kiss, I never saw him again.
His name was Jack Beauloup.Jack, my "Beautiful Wolf."
Twenty years passed. He has returned. For me.
Jack Beauloup and Darcy Turner share one, perfect kiss in high school before he vanishes from sleepy Carlisle, NH without a trace.
Twenty years later, Darcy, who has never forgotten Jack, is shocked when he suddenly appears as a guest at her cousin's wedding. Their attraction to one another is just as searing as it was in high school, but immediately there are a landslide of questions that need answers. Where did he go? Why did he disappear? And what made him return?
As they find their way back to each other, they will discover that the secrets Jack holds are enough to bind them for life, or rip them apart forever.
IT'S YOU is a two-book paranormal love story. Book #1 ends with a cliffhanger. Book #2 ends with an HEA. Both book will be available within 3 months of each other. These books are sexy and steamy and intended for readers over 18.
I was so excited when I read the blurb for It’s You. Paranormal romance is one of my absolute favorite genres and Katy Regnery is one of my favorite authors. That is a recipe for some great storytelling, and I was not wrong. It’s You lived up to my expectations, putting some new spins on a familiar tale. Filled with romanticism, drama, and suspense, I was riveted to the page.
Twenty years is a long time to wait for someone, but it turns out that is just what Darcy Turner has done. One moment with Jack, forever ago, has shaped her entire existence. She can’t explain it, and she can’t deny it. When Jack reappears in her life, she thinks she might finally be able to get the answers she has desperately sought, only to wind up with more questions. Has their bond withstood the test of time only to crumble under life’s impossible realities?
This story had a little bit of everything thrown in. I was totally captivated by the bond that Jack and Darcy share. It defies all logic, and it is unthinkable that in twenty years it has never diminished. Of course, there is a reason for that. I don’t want to spoil anything here, but I just loved the way the story unfolded. The answers were fed to us little by little, until we finally could see the whole picture. The structure of the story was also compelling. In the first half we get dual POV, while the last half is only in Jack’s POV. I liked that we flash back to their shared history and some of the gaps are filled in.
Jack was the perfect hero. His unrelenting love for Darcy had me sighing out loud. He holds such conviction, and makes HUGE sacrifices so they can be together. Darcy I had some trouble with. I wanted her to throw caution to the wind and surrender to Jack completely which probably isn’t fair. She has a lot to process when Jack returns to her life, and she handles it about as well as can be expected.
As the story unfolds, the drama ramps up, and the stakes for these two are raised to an all time high. When we come to the end, the revelations and twists had my heart pounding. Did I mention the angst? Oh, sweet angst how I love thee. This truly was a wonderfully woven tale and I loved every moment. I can’t wait to find out where the story will go in book two. I need it now!
Don’t miss out on It’s You, book 2
Release date: January 17th
The thrilling conclusion of Katy Regnery’s first paranormal romance series!
HAPPILY EVER AFTER…
To some, they’re just words signifying a fairytale ending.
For me, Jack Beauloup, they represent an unyielding desire:
Forever with Darcy Turner, the unexpected love of my life.
A love that has placed her human life in danger.
According to Pack Law, my binding is an abomination that must be severed.
It’s ignited a fiery hatred that I must confront and control.
But what is bound cannot be broken.
I will keep Darcy safe.
Even if it means giving up on my dreams.
Even if it means giving up my life.
