Publisher's Summary

The beautiful courtesan Coco Wilde is famous for her ability to keep the wealthiest men in 19th-century London hanging on her every smile. But she maintains a careful emotional detachment from all admirers. When she meets Sir James Stoker, however, the raven-haired Coco is attracted by his radiant smile and dangerous eyes. Determined to capture her, James must find out how to break the spell of indifference Coco has cast around herself. As the passion between Coco and James awakens, Sleeping Beauty heats up with the intensity of their love-making. Vivid images, tumultuous emotions, and exotic settings add to the drama of their sizzling romance. When Sleeping Beauty was first published, it was chosen by the Romance Writers of America and Romantic Times as one of the top 10 books of the year. A steamy retelling of the well-known fairy tale, Sleeping Beauty uses the classic children's story as a springboard to a very adult quest.

"Ivory...enchants her readers with intense sexual tension, understated but powerful symbolism, great plotting and sympathetic characters who buck tired types." (Publishers Weekly)

A clever take on a fairy story

A beautiful, in depth love story with the background of a fairy story. Beautifully crafted as usual by Judith Ivory and perfected by the talented narrator Violet Primm/Davina Porter.
