#23 - "Awakened by a Kiss" by Lila DiPasqua

Title: Awakened by a Kiss
Author: Lila DiPasqua
Series: Fiery Tales, Book 1


Three classic fairytales - "Sleeping Beauty," "Puss in Boots," and "Little Red Riding Hood" - cleverly retold with enough sensual twists to prove wickedly ever after does exist...

Once upon a wicked time...

Sleeping Beau: Five years ago, 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 memory. Years later, he spots his mysterious seductress-and this time, he has no intention of letting her go...

Little Red Writing: Nicolas de Savignac, Comte de Lambelle, has been assigned by the King to uncover the secret identity of the author writing scandalous stories about powerful courtiers. He never expected his investigation would lead to his grandmother's house, or to a ravishing woman who would stir his deepest hunger...

Bewitching in Boots: Elisabeth de Roussel, daughter of the King, is accustomed to getting what she wants-and she wants Tristan de Tiersonnier, Comte de Saint-Marcel, an ex-commander of the King's private Guard. A recent injury has forced Tristan to leave his distinguished position, but Elisabeth is determined to make him see he's every bit the man he once was-and more than man enough for her... 
My rating: 3 of 5
My thoughts on the book:
I enjoyed all three stories. They were all erotic re-tellings of fairy tales & although there were really small similarities with the originals, they were good & fun as stories, even funny. The characters in all three stories were likable, with good chemistry between them. I can't decide which of the stories was my favorite, I liked them all the same. I'm looking forward to reading more by Lila DiPasqua.
