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.

5 Stars for It’s You

I had the privilege of reading an advance copy of It’s You two years ago and provided feedback to the author. I remember feeling mesmerized by Darcy and Jack’s love story and looking at my notes I had minimal suggestions to make. With my second reading of It’s You I am still blown away with how amazing this story is. This love story is creative and stands apart from other paranormal romances I’ve read. Darcy and Jack are soulmates and their connection is passionate and like nothing I’ve seen before. I don’t want to spoil the story but I will say that their love is so deep it survives time and distance. Darcy and Jack’s bonding is a physical, emotional and mental connection. It came as no surprise that Darcy is at first frightened of how deep her feelings are for Jack. But once Jack’s secrets are revealed will their love stay strong or will they be ripped apart forever? Book 1 ends in a cliffhanger but book 2 releases on January 17,2017 with a happily ever after ending you do not want to miss!

I am still amazed at how beautifully written It’s You is. With every detail I became immersed in the story. I felt the excitement and the heartache. The scenes in the woods painted a clear image and I imagined myself walking along side Darcy and Jack. I loved how the author expressed the emotions of the characters visually with the changes of the scenery and climate. I’ve said this in other reviews but Katy Regnery is one of my favorite authors. Her writing is flawless but what I love most is the risks she takes in her writing. Katy is not afraid to try new storylines. She has given us the sweet small-town romance in The Hearts of Montana series, her twist on beloved fairy tales in A Modern Fairytale collection, the rich and powerful in The Blueberry Lane series and now her debut paranormal romance. It’s You has everything I want in a paranormal romance: passion, romance, drama, intrigue and action. It’s You is a must read for all PNR fans!

About Katy Regnery

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.
