Sure, Claire Beau thought about sleeping with her doctor. With his moss green eyes and sexy petulance, neurologist Brendan Charmant is definitely worth fantasizing about. But she didn't actually do it...did she?

Overview

Sure, Claire Beau thought about sleeping with her doctor. With his moss green eyes and sexy petulance, neurologist Brendan Charmant is definitely worth fantasizing about. But she didn't actually do it...did she?

Claire should be able to answer this relatively simple question, but she has no idea. All she knows is that she met him in a sleep lab for an appointment one day, and woke up at home seven weeks later to find that he's suddenly her warm and loving boyfriend instead of her cold and remote doctor. According to Brendan, her brother and all their friends, Claire is in the middle of a whirlwind love affair with him, a claim bolstered by the weeks of steamy emails and text messages the two of them have exchanged. But to Claire, he's just the arrogant doctor with only a passing interest in finding a diagnosis for her debilitating symptoms.

Claire Beau is afflicted with "Sleeping Beauty Syndrome," a mysterious disorder that causes her to sleep for days at a time, and black out for entire weeks. Dr. Brendan Charmant might have given her the best night (or two, or three) of her life, but she has no memory of ever seeing him out of his white coat. Still, she can't help finding herself more than willing to fall for him (again). After all, doesn't every girl deserve a Prince Charming?

But when Brendan's arrested, and she discovers that she's the alleged victim of a heinous crime that she can't recall, she's crushed to find that her dream-come-true was all just a cruel illusion. Despite having no memory of the actual crime, there are mountains of damning evidence against him. So why is she risking everything to save both of them from this hellish, waking nightmare?

Editorial Reviews

"As an author of fairy tale-inspired novels myself, Sleeping Beauty was a delightful mix of sweet and sour, happy and sad, twists and turns, with a magical ending that practically sings 'And they lived happily ever after!' An absolute pleasure." -Barbara Silkstone, bestselling author of THE SECRET DIARY OF ALICE IN WONDERLAND, AGE 42 AND THREE-QUARTERS and WENDY AND THE LOST BOYS
Amazon.com - Ann Fromholtz
I won't rehash the plot, as the previous two reviews have done that better than I could, and more thoroughly than I have patience to. My problem with romantic comedies and romantic suspense novels is that, many times, the plots are engaging but I feel like I am losing brain cells by reading them (the literary equivalent of reality TV, perhaps?). Not so with this delightful page turner.

I eagerly awaited Sleeping Beauty because I enjoyed The Frog Prince so much, and I was not disappoi...

Meet the Author

Elle’s first self-published romantic comedy The Frog Prince became a bestseller in December 2010, peaking at #1 on Amazon’s Top 100 List for Humor in July 2012. She took early, full advantage of Amazon's KDP Select and its free promo days to “force” her second novel Sleeping Beauty onto the Amazon bestseller list in February 2012. Elle sat on Digital Book World’s (DBW) Successful Self-Published Authors panel in January 2012, and in February was named to Expert Messaging Group’s "25 Self-Published Authors To Watch." She is considered a “reluctant expert” on the topics of electronic, independent-publishing, and is known for taking advantage of her full creative control by pushing the envelope—and advising other authors to do the same. She is a regular contributor to DBWs Expert Publishing Blog, and blogs on topics ranging from e-book pricing to how to handle reader reviews.
