Waking Up

Waking Up is a very enjoyable, though short, read. The book starts out in 1000 A.D. with our hero Declan who becomes cursed by a goddess and must search the world for a cure. We meet our heroine, Morgan Callahan in present day New Orleans. She is celebrating a divorce from a very unkind man, and finds herself in the awkward position of waking up with a stranger after a night of debauchery. Little does she know that her night with Declan was more than just two strangers hooking up. Morgan sneaks out while Declan is in the shower, and he must follow her back to her home which is in a completely different state to convince her that they are meant to be together.

Though a quick read, this story is filled with emotion, sensuality and a quick paced romance between the hero and heroine. Arianna Hart has delivered a heartfelt, sensual, smart tale with a delectable hero and strong heroine. This story was a pleasure to read.

Book Blurb for Waking Up

It’s not nice to mess with a goddess. She’ll change your life—whether you like it or not.

When Morgan Callahan goes to New Orleans to celebrate her divorce, she expects to get drunk and let her hair down a little. Waking up naked in a strange hotel room complete with a strange man singing in the shower—and the new tattoo on her wrist—definitely wasn’t part of the plan.

Memories of a night of incendiary sex? Oh yeah, those are burned into her brain. But how the tattoo got there is a mystery. Deciding discretion is the better part of valor, she sneaks out and heads directly for the next plane back to Connecticut.

Declan emerges from the shower to find an essential ingredient missing from his tangled sheets. Morgan. But their connection is unmistakable—every time she touches her tattoo, an overwhelming wave of desire brings him to his knees.

There’s only one solution: find her. And convince her their meeting wasn’t mere chance—it’s a once-in-a-millennium chance to free him from a goddess’s curse. And seal them together for the adventure of a lifetime.

Warning: Contains lots of hot vanilla sex steamier than a bowl of gumbo, and a bad boy with an uncanny ability to charm a goddess out of her panties.
