Here’s what readers are saying:

I thought that Rowena did a great job of balancing story and steamy sex, which always seems to be a difficult challenge for erotic authors to get right. In fact, the story was so well designed that it could work without the graphic sex, although personally I prefer it with that component. All-in-all, this book was a great entry into a genre that often gets filled with fluff. I will be interested in seeing what else the author writes in the future.~Cassandra, 1-26-2016

Awake in a Sweet Unrest by Rowena Tisdale is a fast-paced, spicy love story that employs the classic love triangle plotline. Has it been used a hundred times? You bet. Is it good every single time? Also yes. Is it ABSOLUTELY FANTASTIC in this book? Yes yes yes!! The contrast between dark, domineering, passionate Nathan and sweet, charming, good-hearted Eric makes Sara’s struggle to choose between them extremely interesting for readers … I would highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys romances—especially steamy ones—or love stories.

Michigan author Rowena Tisdale has stepped into the arena of popular literature that is becoming known as Chick Lit … Romance with a bit of mystery frosted with erotica makes a special treat and Rowena, a single mother, dishes it up well. This seems to be her debut published novel and it [p]laces her in the upper echelon of her fellow Chick Lit authors. She knows how to tell a story and create a stir among readers fortunate enough to come across her work … Sound like an erotic two-pronged romantic adventure? Well it is, and one that signals the arrival of a new writer who knows her business. ~Grady, 1-16-2016 (Top 100 Amazon Reviewer)
