Audio of The Awakening



Christine FeehanI was asked to participate in this anthology with several other writers to give readers a variety of stories and it is quite a collection! Sabrina Jefferies has worked her magic on a wonderful historical. Emma Holly has provided a paranormal. Elda Minger has written a compelling contemporary and I wrote a Rainforest fantasy, quite sensual and different. I certainly hope you enjoy the collection!

Romance Reviews Today

THE AWAKENING is more than an awakening of sensuality in Maggie. It's an awareness of who and what she is, and her acceptance or denial of it. This was an action packed, highly sensual read I was unable to put down until I finished the story. Christine Feehan paints a vivid description of a lush jungle inhabited by rare creatures, exhibiting a love of nature and a desire to protect it and the animals sheltered there. It has this reader wishing for her own fantasy if it were in the shape of Brandt Talbot. My, oh my, but Ms. Feehan's creative imagination surely can write a love story to make you drool. I wonder if she is planning a series of a new race to rival her Carpathians? Now, wouldn't this be a treat for her fans!

Romantic Times
Gerry Benninger, Reviewer

This collection isn't your grandmother's romance anthology! With more than enough mastery of the genre, these sensual stories fully engage the senses.

The Best Reviews
Harriet Klausner, Reviewer

In these four new novellas by today's hottest romance writers, a Victorian widow auctions off her most prized possession: herself…. A beautiful jungle explorer discovers her own wild side…. A blood-thirsty beauty gives in to her darkest desires… and a young woman turns an all-male academy into a school for seduction.

The Best Reviews
Kathy Boswell, Reviewer

All four of these stories were excellent. They were sensual and evocative. Each was different in its own way and all were equally as enjoyable. I highly recommend this anthology.

All About Romance
Sandy Coleman, Reviewer

Anyone who finds anything even remotely intriguing about cats (big ones) will probably find themselves as swept away by Christine Feehan's The Awakening, as I was. Hey, when you combine a mysterious cat-like hero with a heroine fighting, shall we say, overwhelming changes in the remote jungles of Borneo, you've got yourself a story. A compelling mix of supernatural elements and flat out sensuality, The Awakening is Christine Feehan at her best-albeit, the short version.
