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. But 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.


Book One of the 'It's You' duet knocked my socks off! I'm officially dying for Book Two. I wasn't sure what to expect from Katy Regnery in the paranormal department, but I'm so thrilled she jumped into this genre. I was immediately engaged in this story. The pull was reminiscent of a couple other paranormal series that I love, engaging me into a realm I love, and yet grabbing me in its own special and unique way. My feelings for this story then grew and grew. I didn't want to put this book down.

No spoilers here. But going off the book summary alone, we know that it's been 20 years since Darcy and Jack's kiss in high school. That alone was fascinating to see Darcy and Jack reconnect. Then throw in a crazy bunch of non-human stuff, and watching Darcy and Jack try to navigate any possible relationship amidst the preconceived impossible amped up their story ten-fold. I completely loved Jack and Darcy. I could feel their connection through the pages. But I also loved that there were no easy fixes to their obstacles. There is something engagingly exciting about a couple being forced to face incredible odds against them. The struggle is tangible. But I only had to meet Jack and Darcy once to know I would be cheering for them the entire way.

The world Katy has built here is also quite fascinating. I loved the lore of this world. As the story progressed, I especially loved getting more and more bits and pieces of this 'other' world. Along with the normal and paranormal worlds, we also get some fascinating side characters who have their own crazy side stories. I mean, really, there's a bit of a soap opera going on here. And I loved it! There are so many engaging layers to not only Jack and Darcy's main story, but the side stories as well.

I also have to give a shout-out to some great twists and turns here. I loved the surprises. There was one moment when I was reading where I literally shouted out loud in surprise, completely take aback to something that happened. It was one of those did-that-really-happen moments. Then on second glance, it was an oh-yeah-that-totally-happened moment. And let me tell you, the moment I am referring to was awesome. I had to pick my jaw off the floor for that one.

Okay, I need Book Two now. I'm so excited to get back into this story!!


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.

New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Katy Regnery started her writing career by enrolling in a short story class in January 2012. One year later, she signed her first contract and Katy’s first novel was published in September 2013. Twenty-five books later, Katy claims authorship of the multi-titled, New York Times and USA Today Blueberry Lane Series, which follows the English, Winslow, Rousseau, Story, and Ambler families of Philadelphia; the six-book, bestselling ~a modern fairytale~ series; and several other standalone novels and novellas. Katy’s first modern fairytale romance, The Vixen and the Vet, was nominated for a RITA® in 2015 and won the 2015 Kindle Book Award for romance. Katy’s boxed set, The English Brothers Boxed Set, Books #1–4, hit the USA Today bestseller list in 2015, and her Christmas story, Marrying Mr. English, appeared on the list a week later. In May 2016, Katy’s Blueberry Lane collection, The Winslow Brothers Boxed Set, Books #1-4, became a New York Times E-book bestseller. In 2016, Katy signed a print-only agreement with Spencerhill Press. As a result, her Blueberry Lane paperback books will now be distributed to brick and mortar bookstores all over the United States. Katy lives in the relative wilds of northern Fairfield County, Connecticut, where her writing room looks out at the woods, and her husband, two young children, two dogs, and one Blue Tonkinese kitten create just enough cheerful chaos to remind her that the very best love stories begin at home.
