Awakened was a fast-moving, intriguing novel.

This book follows Lisa, a swim suit model, when she gets lost in the woods. She meets a hot guy in witness protection, and her life then changes forever.

This novel is well written, and I love the character development, plot and romance involved in it - but I had one major problem. The novel starts out as an everyday sort of romance and thriller, and then suddenly halfway through the novel switches into a supernatural/fantasy and kind of ditches the to

I received this book as part of a Goodreads giveaway.

Kent and Lisa are different than most couples and it's not their unusually strong connection that makes them different. They are Awakened, part of a race of part alien people and they possess powers beyond the belief of mere humans, and they are going to need it.

Story progressed pretty well from here, but then in a fl ...more

Born and raised in the beautiful Pacific Northwest, I've spent most of my life writing. I am, at heart, a storyteller. As early as I can remember I have loved stories and loved telling them in my own inimitable way.

A Harley Austin book often defies the typical categories. A cross-genre author, you can find me writing stories that include classic romance, mystery, suspense, fantasy, and science fi
