This was my first Lila DiPasqua short story I LOVE fairytale retellings I d had my eye on this set of fiery fairy tales for a while now, but I was unsure what the fiery part meant Did that mean Erotic romance Historical romance with a sex scene in it Romance with no history and several sex scenes I had no idea so after someone recommended this particular story and I saw it was only 0. 99 on , I decided to check it out for myself. This story was not what I expected It is definitely what I would consider erotic romance or a much, much edgier historical romance The f word is thrown around, as are various terms such as c nt, prick, cum ewreally hate that one , and cock this is the only one I typically see Finally, there were juiceslots of juicesI am sorry, I just hate thinking of anything down there as juicynot sexy In other words, this way too much for me and I won t be reading a If you haven t read about this emotionally tortured hero and fairy tale ending he and Catherine get, you should Great twist on Sleeping Beauty. I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review An emotionally damaged Kings son and a desperate mysterious woman have a wild night of bliss Then 5 years later they meet again, and the sparks ignite Can Adrien overcome his past so that he can have a future Can he forgive Catherine for using him, then disappearing There are a couple of new twists to this old tale, which makes for entertaining, enjoyable reading There is love, hate, tenderness and laughter that keeps you turning the pages.

Will this Sleeping Beau get his Princess Charming after all I ve loved every single one of DiPasqua s Fiery Tale stories She takes a classic tale and makes it into an endearing love story Sleeping Beau is a quick, red hot read that is a must read for any hi More like Dangerous Liaisons than Sleeping Beauty, but whatever it was, this was the hottest historical fiction I ve ever read so far originally Published In The AWAKENED BY A KISS AnthologyInspired By The Tale Of Sleeping Beauty An Erotically Charged Historical Romance Novella From The Acclaimed Fiery Tales Series One Sleeping Rake, One Scorching Kiss, One Night Of Unforgettable Passion Five Years Ago, The Notorious Rake, Adrien D Aspe, Marquis De Beaulain, Was Awakened By A Sensuous Kiss And Experienced A Night Of Raw Ecstasy That Was Branded Into His MemoryYears Later, He Spots His Mysterious Seductress And This Time, [ Pdf Sleeping Beau ê southern-gothic PDF ] by Lila DiPasqua ↠´ He Has No Intention Of Letting Her Go Another steamy hot and emotional novella from my new queen of erotic historical romance AMAZING STORY What I love about Lila DiPasqua s writing is the way she combines both enthralling lovemaking scences and the emotional development between the two main characters to create a sensational story that pluck at the heart strings of the readers while enchanting them with intense sexual chemistry And she certainly did the same thing again with this novella 3 Now I want Long live Lila DiPasqua Catherine drugged and seduced Adrien 5 years ago They are reunited at a country party and he wants answers Nothing really happens, they see each other and start having sex until the end of the book, when her fianc arrives and there is an attempted poisoning Not much is revealed about the characters, who they are or what drives them Quick, sex driven story. Normally I don t like ones at this spice level, but I loved this one I loved that it was set in France, that there was a small mystery surrounding that night, and a twist at the end I did expect There is a lot of steam in this one, but enough of a story to balance it out for me Catherine had her reasons for what she did five years ago and the memory of that night has stayed with her Once she told her whole story everything made sense and I loved her Adrien is not shy at all about the life he lives, but he is still loveable There is something about how he wanted answers about that night that makes you love him because it wasn t for bad reasons.
