Overview

"Think you've found true love? Keep dreaming."

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 simple question, but she has no idea. The only thing she knows for sure 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 boyfriend instead of her doctor.

According to Brendan, her brother, and her best friend, 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 realizes that sometimes the best way to make your dreams come true is to just stay asleep. So why is she risking everything to save both of them from this hellish, waking nightmare?

Meet the Author

A "military brat," Elle Lothlorien was born in Germany and spent her childhood in such far-flung places as Puerto Rico, Charleston, S.C., Italy, and Washington D.C. Sadly, the only language she ever became semi-fluent in is English.

Her first novel, the self-published romantic comedy THE FROG PRINCE, became an Amazon bestseller for the first time in December of 2010, and the second time in February 2012. Her second novel, the "darkish" romantic comedy SLEEPING BEAUTY became a bestseller in February 2012.

Ironically, after so many years of trying to get "traditionally published," Elle is considered an expert of sorts on electronic self-publishing ("indie publishing"), and has been invited to speak and lead workshops for writers, authors, and the even the publishing industry--everywhere from Sacramento to New York City to Denver.

An early mid-life crisis propelled Elle to take a Lindy Hop dance class at a Denver club. Several years (and a few ankle and knee braces) later, she can do a mad Charleston and can pancake like nobody's business. She belongs to an all-girl's, vintage jazz dance troupe, the Denver Diamond Dolls, which performs in Denver, as well as all over the country (and sometimes outside of it).

Elle lives in Denver, Colorado, and keeps two dachshunds around the house to provide comic relief.
