Sleeping Beauty - Judith Ivory This is a "must read", a classic even, in romance reading circles. So, I did my duty and read it and must say a lot of the book left me cold. The characters, though not always entirely likable, aren't your standard hero/heroine. The heroine is a mistress and a bit older than the hero but she's a bit too standoffish for my liking. Still, the writing was quite beautiful and I can see why it's held in such high regard.

I have this on audio and will reread it one day when I'm in a better mood (ha, ha) and see if my opinion changes.
