Awakened by a Kiss

A Collection of Fiery Tales


Inspired by three classic fairy tales—“Sleeping Beauty,” “Puss in Boots,” and “Little Red Riding Hood”—all in one deliciously steamy historical romance collection featuring three novellas from the acclaimed Fiery Tales series.

Sleeping Beau: 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 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, Count of Lambelle, is on a mission. A member of the King’s elite private guard, Nicolas has been assigned by the Crown 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 ignite an untamable desire…

Bewitching in Boots: Elisabeth de Roussel, daughter of the King, is accustomed to getting what she wants—and she wants gorgeous Tristan de Tiersonnier, Count of Saint-Marcel, the ex-commander of the King’s elite 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…

*Awakened by a Kiss can be enjoyed as a stand-alone anthology.
