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?
After cooling down from reading Crave, the first book in the series, I dove right into Ravish. This a the modern day adaptation of Sleeping Beauty. Again, this is another highly erotic book by a talented author. Hot and steamy doesn’t even begin to describe this series.
After Aurora’s parents make a pact with a voodoo priestess, so they could have a child, they quickly realize the mistake they make. When Aurora decides to have sex for the first time, the voodoo curse takes effect and she falls into a coma. The physicians all label her as Sleeping Beauty because she stays in this coma for six years, with no medical reason. Her parents hire Dr. Jacob White to try and awaken her.
After Jacob dreams of Aurora, he tries to figure out what the dreams mean and if they are real. This is where the hot sex and erotic fantasies come into play. (Yes, pun intended)
He dreams of Aurora whenever he falls asleep. They quickly fall in lust and love and try to figure out how to wake her up so they can have a life together.
The author also included a secondary story in the book featuring Jacob’s brother. They all intertwine into one story and flow nicely. Like I said before, this book is highly erotic, and should only be read by adults.
I am looking forward to reading her next book, Enslave: The Taming of the Beast.
Outstanding Book That Will Stay On My Bookshelf
I will defiantly check out Crave. This series sounds really good.
Oh man…another series I will have to buy LOL!
