Release day: His Innocent’s Passionate Awakening

1 June 2020

Today is the official release of His Innocent’s Passionate Awakening by Melanie Milburne (ebook and paperback, Harlequin Presents). Here’s the blurb:

Untouched and unawakened…

Or redemption?

Rather than lose her beloved estate to ultrarich playboy Luca Ferrantelli, Artemisia agrees to wed him…on paper. Traumatized by a devastating accident, the heiress hasn’t left the castello in years. She knows nothing of the world outside—nothing of a man’s touch.

If there’s a chance that marrying Artie will give his grandfather the will to live, Luca must do it. But he’s determined to resist the addictive pull of Artie’s vibrancy and vulnerability. Until their scorching wedding kiss stirs the beauty to sensual new life!

Melanie dropped by today to tell us a little about this book:

My editor asked me to write a Sleeping Beauty–themed book, so I decided to explore the concept of my heroine, social phobic Artie, being asleep to her potential. It is only when meeting the hero, Luca Ferrantelli—who incidentally is in an emotional coma—that Artie is awakened to her own agency. It was interesting as I was writing this book to realise how so many of us don’t realise our true potential. I was in a creative coma for a long time, too frightened to write in case I failed. I love what George Eliot said: ‘It is never too late to become what you might have been.’

You can find out more about this book at Melanie’s website or buy it from Amazon.
