Celebrating A New Fairytale Fantasy From Marie Treanor and Bonnie Dee

Author Marie Treanor has had a pretty exciting month! The first book in her Awakened by Blood Trilogy, BLOOD ON SILK, has just hit the shelves and today Book three in the Fairytale Fantasies Series she co-writes with author Bonnie Dee has just been released!

Learn more about what Marie's up to:

To fight this evil, they'll have to make love. Lots of love.

AWAKENING BEAUTY Book 3 in The Fairytale Fantasies Series by Marie Treanor and Bonnie Dee.

Joel Thorne feels as if he's been sleepwalking through his life. Wealth and success are his; now he's at a crossroads. Politics beckons, a move that would be made easier with a loveless marriage of convenience to his ambitious friend and ally, Vee Gabor. During a long mountain hike to clear his head, he discovers a castle overgrown with thorns and, inside, a beautiful sleeping woman.

When Princess Aurora opens her eyes, Joel's handsome face is imprinted on her heart - then she's swamped with grief and loss. An evil fairy tried to take her pure blood to gain power, and though her other godmothers fended off the worst of the curse, she's been asleep for a thousand years. Worse, she's been erased from history and from the memories of all she loved. True love brought her back, but to what future?

Despite their instant, strong attraction, Joel's practical nature wars with the possibility that magic is real. Yet with every touch, every kiss, the heat and emotion grow more real than anything he's ever known. Their union also reawakens something else. Something darker. An evil fairy's centuries-old vendetta that just won't die.

Warning: Contains explicit, edge-of-your-dreams sex, a newly minted hero in training, and a fairy princess who kicks butt for the man she loves. No fairy dust was spared in the making of this book.

  5. Cheers, everyone! Thanks for joining in the release celebrations!

    Hi Sandy - thank you! It's very exciting!

    Thanks for the congrats, DeNita! I do feel I'm still on the rollercoaster - my feet just don't seem to touch the ground any more! So glad you like the Fairytale Fantasies, because they've been great fun to write.

    Basically, Awakening Beauty is a new spin on - yes, Sleeping Beauty :). In our story, though, her awakening is delayed by 1,000 years, and our medieval princess wakes up in a modern, democratic, capitalist world where no one has ever heard of her, and her handsome prince of commerce doesn't beleive in magic. On the other hand he's very sexy and willing to help, and he soon finds Princess Aurora challenging all his old denials of magic and true love.

    Awakening Beauty is the third book in the series, but although we've connected it very loosely to events in Demon Lover, they can each be read separately. The first, Cinderella Unmasked was our take on a grown up and responsible Cinderella who strives to find happiness after Prince Charming has left her. Demon Lover is our take on Rumpelstiltskin (no gnarled old goblin in our tale!) and his real motive for wanting the queen's baby.

    We haven't planned any more Fairytales so far, but I certainly don't rule them out - they're much too fun :)



  6. Hi Ina! Yes, the cover is really pretty. Scott Carpenter is the artist and I think he did a wonderful job of mixing fairytale innocence with sexiness :)

    Thanks, Fedora! Nice to see you :). We haven't planned any more Fairytales yet - we've both been too involved in solo projects recently. But it would be nice to do another :)



  7. Glad to hear you're both busy, Marie--that's great news for us readers! ;) And maybe the muse will strike you both sometime down the line with another fairytale re-make :D

  8. I wouldn't be surprised, Fedora :) I'll let you know!



  9. I love the cover on Awakening Beauty! I'm glad to see there are 3 books in the series... I'll have to check them out.
