Ravish by Cathy Yardley (Book Review 2010-6)
This is a retelling of Sleeping Beauty, but done in a more adult manner. If you are looking for an updated version with a lot of sex worked into the storyline then this is your book. I am always impressed when an author can make sex an integral part of an erotic story rather than it just being stuck in to get the label.
Yardley does an excellent job of bringing those two things together. I just got Crave and Enslave and hope they are as well written as this one. She also writes great Chick Lit too!
An innocent beauty, trapped in sleep...
Sheltered from society, Aurora Jacquard has yet to feel the sweet release of physical love. Then, on the night she is about to give in to temptation, she inexplicably falls into a deep coma.
A handsome prince, determined to discover her secrets...
Jacob White is one of the best neurologists in the world, and he intends to awaken Aurora from her virginal slumber. But when she begins to invade his dreams every night, beckoning him into a sensuous place of lust and danger, Jacob realizes there's more to this woman than meets the eye.
It will take more than a kiss to wake her up...
Trapped in a world of erotic dreams, Aurora and Jacob must surrender to their deepest darkest desires...but how far are they willing to go?
