About the Author

Nicole has progressed from scribbling in notebooks to banging on keyboards, but she’s never managed to stop daydreaming at inappropriate moments.

When not answering the demands of her characters, Nicole can often be found curled up with a good book or spending far too many hours acting the hero in whatever video game is her obsession of the moment.

One of Nicole’s other great passions is travel. She loves being married to a native Belgian, both because she likes the idea of being “The American” and because it gives her plenty of excuses to visit Europe—that wondrous land of coffee, chocolate, pastry—as often as possible.

Michigan born and raised, Nicole lives there with her honorary Michigander/Belgian husband and her two children. A Michigan State University alum, Nicole bleeds green and is a Spartan for life.

(Elizabeth Darcy is a pen name that Nicole Ciacchella no longer uses.)

Asleep is a re-imagining of Sleeping Beauty with a wonderful twist. The slumbering party in this case is not a helpless maiden, but a handsome prince with a charming chipped tooth and a rakish smile. The story takes place in an imaginary land with Five Realms. Prince Dev is the heir to the Realm of Estoria and Princess Jessamyn is the heiress to the Realm of Lyrane. These neighbouring kingdoms have always been allies. The reigning monarchs are friends, and Dev and Jess spend much of their childhood together. Their relationship develops from childhood playmates to lovers, and a happily ever after seems imminent between them. But on the eve of their betrothal party, Dev is kidnapped… Dev is a wonderful prince, brave and loving, but also insecure about his future responsibilities as governing king. He treads through life with humour, and courageously attempts to face the challenges thrown his way. Jess is a beautiful warrior woman like her mother, and she wields a sword and leads an army in the blink of an eye. They complement each other and their love is pure and genuine. Narrated in fairy-tale fashion, the book takes us into a medieval world of dreams, castles, warriors, and kingdoms. We cheer for Jess as she races against time to save her beloved prince, and we feel for Dev as he attempts to hold on to his sanity while drugged and imprisoned. This is the second book I read by Elizabeth Darcy. The first one was Eye of the Beholder, a beautiful retelling of Beauty and the Beast, and once again her magical writing transported me to an enchanting dreamland.
