Waking Sleeping Beauty

Waking Sleeping Beauty by Laurie LeClair

Book 2: Once Upon A Romance Series

Is real life better than any dream you can imagine?

Sheltered, naive Francine (Francie) King longs for her dream wedding. Now, if only she can find the perfect groom for her perfect wedding. Added to that, she’s just walked out on her meddling, controlling mother and has lost her trust fund money. What’s a girl to do? And how will she ever afford the wedding she’s planned for all her life?

Successful, single Marcus Goode wants to be closer to his ailing mother and hold onto the only family he has left in this world. He agrees to return to Dallas to take over the temporary running of King’s Department Store while the new owner searches for a permanent replacement. What he doesn’t anticipate is just how involved he will get with the King family, especially Francie when he’s caught up in a make-believe courtship for a fairy tale ad campaign for the store.

When Marcus finds Francie in a wedding dress asleep in the store after hours, he kisses her awake. Neither one of them will ever be the same. Can a hopeless romantic learn to survive in the real world? And can a confirmed bachelor remain that way when his heart falls for a sleeping beauty?

~ Wonder Womom on Amazon.com

“This the second in the series and it just gets better. The characters are vivid to the imagination and so easy to love and to dislike(dratted step mother) at the same time. Can’t wait to read the third one.”
