Publication Day Spotlight & Review: Reawakened by Rachael Stewart

Reawakened by Rachael Stewart

In the latest superhot tale from reader-favorite author Rachael Stewart, business owner Olivia Carmel is embracing her wild side, and PR expert Valentine Boretti has been hired to rein her in. But instead, Olivia is driving him wild…for her!

Seeing a client naked is no way to start a working relationship—especially when that client is stunningly sensual Olivia Carmel. When she invites me to watch her BDSM session in London’s most hedonistic sex club, she thinks I’m a stranger, not a PR expert sent to rein her in.

Watching Olivia awakens a hunger I can’t allow myself to feel. There’s no way I can work with her! But when she crashes her luxury car, I can’t sit on the sidelines and wait for her recklessness to turn fatal. She may kill me when she recognizes me…and when she learns a man sixteen years her junior has been hired to curtail her bad behavior.

I’m here to reawaken Olivia’s careful, rational nature. But instead she’s reawakening my desire…showing me just how well we work together in and out of the bedroom. As we fulfill each other’s naughtiest fantasies, and share our deepest longings, I realize I’m feeling more for my wayward client than lust. But can I convince Olivia to take a chance on love?

A perfect finale from Harlequin Dare; Reawakened is sexy, a sizzling story with strong-willed protagonists.

Entrepreneur, Olivia Carmel is uncontrollable. After losing her husband, she's determined to live her life in the fast lane, not caring what others think. Only her actions are becoming an embarrassment to the board of her company. They want to… need to rein in her behaviour before she destroys her company and charity's reputation. So they send in PR expert Valentine Boretti to help… with surprising results.

Manipulating. The heroine isn't instantly likeable… it took time to warm to her personality. Her controlling behaviour; baiting a response from Valentine made for uncomfortable reading. Yet, the author makes it clear Olivia is struggling and her actions are symptoms of the issues she is unable to cope with.

Ever the pragmatist and without prompting, Valentine offers Olivia a life with solutions. One where hurdles are easily overcome. Therefore, despite their age difference, the younger man proves he is mature far beyond his years and very much attuned to his client in both mind and body!

Written from a dual point of view, the author gives us a greater insight into what the protagonists are thinking which adds an exciting dimension to the narrative. As with all the Rachel Stewart novels I've devoured previously, Reawakened is everything I expected and more.

Rachael Stewart adores conjuring up stories for the readers of Harlequin Mills & Boon and Deep Desires Press, with tales varying from the heartwarmingly romantic to the wildly erotic.

She's been writing since she could put pen to paper as the stacks of scrawled on A4 sheets in her loft will attest to, and the lovingly bound short stories that her father would run off at work and proudly share out with his colleagues. Thinking it was a pipe dream to be published one day, she pursued a sensible career in business but she was really play-acting, achieving the appropriate degree and spending many years in the corporate world where she never truly belonged. Always happiest when she was sat at her laptop in the quiet hours tapping out a story or two. And so here she is, a published author, her full-time pleasure, a dream come true.

A Welsh lass at heart, she now lives in Yorkshire with her husband and three children, and if she's not glued to her laptop, she's wrapped up in them or enjoying the great outdoors seeking out inspiration.
