One of Booklist's 101 Best Romance Novels of the Last 10 Years from an awe-inspiring, award-winning author

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.

All the Other Julie Becks and Me

My name is not particularly weird, but it’s not that common either. According to the website HowManyofMe.com, which plumbs U.S. Census data, there are a ton of Julies in the United States—565,224 of them.

The Best Writing Advice of 2016

2016 was not an easy year to be a writer. Not just because of the constant, concentration-wrecking pull of our devices, their glowing screens beckoning with the promise of fresh horrors. I’ve spoken with many writers, in recent months, who seem to be facing a deeper, starker crisis of purpose since the election of Donald Trump. They’re asking themselves: Is making literature an acceptable pursuit in a world with such urgent, tangible needs? And if so, how should I use my words? It’s a deeply personal line of questioning, and I can’t supply any answers here—I’m still working things out for myse
