Publisher's Summary

It is the eve of the Longest Night. Eliza Baker and the rest of Lord Jayden's servants excitedly prepare for the lavish festival as their masters enjoy a head start on the debauchery that awaits. Eliza's madly in love with Kell, a sweet, deliciously sexy guard. Kell returns her feelings, but is striving to make himself a worthy man before he asks Eliza's father for permission to court her.

To keep the Demon of Winter at bay, an offering must be made during the festival. As the event begins, Lord Kempsly informs Kell that he's offering a special sacrifice this year, and Kell must escort the girl who will offer up her maidenhood for the enjoyment of the crowd. Another guest will select the maiden, and Kell realizes to his dismay the guest is Lord Rakin, a rich and handsome rogue who has his eye on Eliza. But little do any of the men suspect the burgeoning desire the ceremony is awakening in Eliza.

Rape is not sexy.

A public rape where the sweetheart and two others participates and the heroin enjoys it??
Super sad statement on what our idea of "entertainment" has become.

EROTIC AND KINKY!

If you could sum up Eliza's Awakening in three words, what would they be?

I think I covered the first two words in the in my header. This story is very erotic and kinky and kind of disturbing. It's really and truly rape turned into an erotic, kinky short story.

How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

I would have made Eliza a willing participant from the start and not forced into her "enjoyable" situation. I don't want to give too much away.

Have you listened to any of Helen Stern’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Yes - I've listened to several books narrated by Helen Stern and I think she's great.

Any additional comments?

If you are looking for a short very erotic but somewhat disturbing romance - this might be for you. Enjoy!
