Editorial Reviews

Review

“Cathy Yardley has turned fairy tales into modern and stylishly erotic romps. The Brothers Grimm were never like this!” (Susan Squires, USA Today Bestselling Author)

“Edgy, erotic and delicious. Cathy Yardley is one of my favorite authors.” (Nancy Warren, USA Today Bestselling Author)

“Cathy Yardley gives bedtime stories a new twist. Not that you’ll get any sleep. Modern, searingly erotic--fairy tales were never like this! She left me breathless, and eager for the next installment.” (Susan Squires)

About the Author

Cathy Yardley has always been entranced by fairy tales and now spends her time giving them her extra-special touch. This multi-published author enjoys movies, video games, cooking, and plotting world domination (just kidding; she hates to cook). When not writing, she spends time in her beautiful San Diego home with her husband and son.


More About the Author

A few random facts about me:

I am a fiction addict.

I love J.D. Robb/Nora Roberts, Jim Butcher, J.R. Ward's Black Dagger Brotherhood, Sherrilyn Kenyon's Dark Hunter, Laurell K. Hamilton's Anita Blake series, Stephen King, Jennifer Crusie, Marian Keyes, J.K. Rowling, and a slew of other authors.

I have been known to stay up all night to finish a new novel. I don't so much read as devour.

I am an out of the closet foodie.

People who follow me on Facebook can attest: I am a foodie-blog whore. Love Smitten Kitchen. Adore Pioneer Woman Cooks. Bake my own bread on a weekly basis (because the recipe is so frickin' easy, a chimp could do it -- and it tastes phenomenal. I am a walking infomercial for this bread. ) Total Top Chef freak.

I am a geekgirl.

I love the San Diego Comic-con, or "The Con" as they call it.

I was part of the SCA -- The Society for Creative Anachronism -- and briefly sponsored my own mini army. I learned to speak some Japanese from anime.

I have a near encyclopedic knowledge of character actors and obscure movies. I have been called to settle bar bets.

I have a more-flirtatious-than-appropriate relationship with Excel spreadsheets. When I used to work at a day job, if I wore lipstick they assumed I was going on an interview. To this day, an entire marketing department lives in fear of my memory.

I love being an author.

Love writing. Love promoting. Love everything about it. And I love hearing from readers. Email me, anytime, and I'll get back to you as soon as I can.

Format: Paperback
Her parents overly protected Aurora Jacquard, but the twenty-one year old college student goes with her boy friend of four months Oliver to a Caribbean island where she plans to give him her virginity. In the middle of the sexual act, she suddenly falls into a deep coma.

Over the next few years, doctors have tried to awaken "Sleeping Beauty" with no success; none can fathom the cause. Aurora's mom keeps searching while her dad has tuned bitter and angry. The latest expert to arrive is neurologist Dr. Jacob White. However, he is surprised when she enters his dreams; he is stunned when Carrie the night nurse wakes him because Rory's brain monitor displayed new patterns for the first time since the coma began; finally he is shocked when they make love in his dreams. Jacob begins to believe that when he sleeps he enters a place where Rory is somehow locked away. As the cold scientist falls in love with his courageous patient, he knows he is out of his venue. He needs the help of his brother's former girlfriend, an NYU professor who practices voodoo if he is to awaken his Sleeping Beauty.

After modernizing Snow White (see CRAVE), Cathy Yardley does likewise to the fairy tale Sleeping Beauty. This time a voodoo queen plays the evil role and Jacob the neurologist plays the part of Prince Charming. Jacob's brother a psychiatrist adds to the sense of RAVISH occurring in New York. Ms. Yardley provides a contemporary adult version of the classic.

Ravish: The Awakening of Sleeping Beauty by Cathy Yardley, a Kindle book I began reading on September 17th. It's really to be noted that this book was written prior to Enslave whereas I read it the same day but the evening after reading Enslave. .... Yeah, that more or less makes sense.

Ravish is for sure the Robin to Enslave's Batman - a freshman first-attempt for Yardley, fanciful, difficult to accept and roll with at parts, but you see hints of greatness of the books to follow. The fairy tale come true concept of this book is the Prince being Dr Jacob, a neurologist called to solve the six-year coma of Rory (Aurora) who was pricked by her then-boyfriend Oliver's "needle" while on vacation on her father's private Caribbean island. The plot then bops back and forth between the present reality and Rory's/Jacob's subconscious dreamworld.

I'm sorry, but this was a boring book. Only the end was the least bit interesting. There could have been so much more to the plot, but the writing was fairly well done.

I just couldn't get into this book. I wish I knew why. The writing is solid and the mechanics of the craft are strong, but I didn't connect with the characters.

This was a story like none Ive read before. I highly suggest it. Without vulgarity it was very, very sexy. Very well written. 50 Shades was a good story but poorly written...of course in my opinion. The "sex" in 50 shades was not very sexy...at least to me. Cathy Yardley hit a home run with this novel!
