I can't believe it! Waking the Beast was nominated in the Beastly category for the S&M's Book Obsessions Lady Boner Awards, and I won! ( http://smbookobsessions.com/lady-boner-awards-3/ )
I really won! I'm so excited as this is my first year being nominated and because I love the Awakening Pride series so much!
There are three books in the series so far with a fourth slated for a December 17, 2014 release! It makes me so happy to see so many others falling in love with these characters just as I have! So thank you, thank you, thank you!
If you haven't started the series yet, I hope you'll give it a shot and let me know what you think! Here's a look at the blurb:
Waking the Beast
Awakening Pride Book 1
By Lacey Thorn
The legend of the Paka Watu...
Ever since she was a young girl, Abby Lane can’t resist the allure of a cat shifter tribe forced to repress their beasts. On a trip to Africa, she discovers a coveted piece of information—the name the pride leader assumed when he left his home—and she traces his lineage to his descendant.
The sleeping lion...
Utah Pearce can't keep his gaze off the woman who slips into the bar every night. Though not his usual type, she brings out the possessive instinct in him, making him battle with himself as he tries to stay away.
Abby’s research never prepared her for the reality in front of her. The beast is waking, and Utah is changing in ways both exciting and terrifying. He is possessive and dominant, and when he finally claims her, neither of them will ever be the same.

Here's a look at the other two books in the series!
Tempting the Tiger, Awakening Pride Book 2
Tempting the Tiger
Awakening Pride Book Two
By Lacey Thorn
Reno has known there was more to him since he awoke in the hospital, alive when he should have died. Only one thought consumed him. Find Tah. Watch over him. Protect him. Then everything changed.
A tempted tiger...
A mission gone wrong brings him face to face with a woman who tempts his tiger from hiding. He wants her with a fierce hunger that consumes him and shocks him with the possessive nature she awakens.
Amia belongs nowhere. Not with the Blane family of hunters she was born into, and not with the dominant man who kidnaps her and turns her world upside down. She runs. She fights. And when the time comes, she pays the price. Running isn't an option, and there's no fighting a man who turns her inside out with unquenchable lust. Maybe, just maybe, she's found where she belongs.
Freeing the Feline, Awakening Pride Book 3
Freeing the Feline
Awakening Pride Book Three
By Lacey Thorn
He's only human...
The only thing Logan despises more than a weak man is one who preys on others. He finds himself in a battle between a group of people he never dreamed existed, and those who want them dead.
A captured lioness...
Clara has always known she carried the spirit of a lioness within her. An impulsive quest finds her at the mercy of a man she's spent her entire life hearing of. She wants to claim her place as part of his pride, but to do so means turning her back on the one who reared her.
One look at Clara has Logan chomping at the bit to protect her. Every moment spent together assures him she feels the same. She's the one with a beast inside, but he's the one feeling territorial. Every glance has his chest swelling with primal need. Every touch sends one word echoing through his mind. Soon he'll show her exactly what it means to belong.
You've got plenty of time to catch up on the series and be ready for the December 17 release of Saving the Beast!
