Harlequin Reissue: Wide Awake

Hi everyone! I've had some queries about WIDE AWAKE (see cover to the right).

This is a reissue of three of my Silhouette Desire novels. I wrote these at the start of my career, and while I will always love them (I still reread the books every so often :-)), my writing style has changed and developed since then, so keep that in mind if you decide to pick up this collection.

I've got details of the stories below, along with links to excerpts. If you do decide to dive in, I hope you enjoy!

Also, this is being published by Harlequin Australia, so I'm not sure if you'll be able to access it worldwide - leave a comment if you can and where you bought it, so other readers can share the info. Thank you!

Awaken to Pleasure

Painful experience screamed that Taylor Reid should run far and fast from Jackson Santorini. But keeping custody of her brother meant becoming her former boss's bride. And giving Jackson a baby.

Despite his powerful size and presence, Jackson had been hurt before. Yet he'd protected her at a personal cost, respecting her virginal apprehension. Suddenly, for Jackson's sake, Taylor wanted to replace pain with pleasure. Only, she'd never imagined what sensations — and secrets — she would awaken...

Awaken The Senses

Charlotte Ashton had never belonged anywhere — until she met worldly Alexandre Dupree. The winemaker was consulting at her family's vineyard, and soon shy Charlotte had fallen completely under his spell. He seemed to know all her secret desires, all her dreams — as if he'd been put on earth just for her pleasure.

Alexandre seduced Charlotte in all the ways she had fantasised about. He'd read her secret journal and discovered the real Charlotte — the sensual lover, the generous woman, the vulnerable virgin. Was his crime so unforgivable when all he'd wanted was her love? Yet now to maintain her trust, he would have to continue to lie...

Craving Beauty

Marc was dangerous to her in the way that only a strong, sexy male could be to a woman. Even knowing that, Hira had agreed to marry him. Her mother had worried that he was scarred, but the lines on his face did nothing to lessen his raw masculine appeal. If anything, they gave him an even more dangerous male air, enticing the feminine core of her to thoughts that shocked her.

What did a man's face matter anyway? She had no use for handsome men. But for a man with a heart? For such a man, she might risk everything...

Any chance Wide Awake will come out on Nook?

Oh, oh, oh...

This is awesome news! Let me check, see whether it's available down here (Florida)

Okay, both amazon and Book Depository have it as "not found"


Double rats.

Anon and Azteclady - I've heard from some US readers that they've found the books up for pre-order separately in the US (late March release), so maybe search for each of the three titles, rather than for Wide Awake?

I'll share any other info! (But if you do have success, please post here for other readers.:-))

Can this book please become a Nook purchase?! I am a huge fan and my nook collection must have this one, please...

Hi both Anons on this thread - you'll be able to get the stories on Nook when the US edition releases. :) I've been told it'll be around September. More info to come as I get it!

However, if you'd like them straight away, they are available separately on Nook toward the end of March. Here are the links (I recommend waiting for the anthology, as the separate books are more expensive).
