The time away from her daughter, in the family cabin, was supposed to be good for Shayla Murphy’s muse.  All had gone well until two men materialized out of thin air on her doorstep and had a tussle.  The blue-eyed, hot stranger had saved her life, but that didn’t mean Shayla felt safe about letting him in or that she believed his story about being from the future.  Calling the police wasn’t an option since they’d only think she was crazy.  Shayla’s heart went out to the stranger, especially when she noticed he seemed to be getting sick. 

Creed Donovan’s sickness was going to take him into unchartered territory and unless he can get home quickly, there’s no cure for his ailment.  Creed is a drug enforcer for the Federation of Americans and he’s chasing a rebel.  With his supply of sexual suppressing drugs stolen, Creed is experiencing some serious knee-buckling arousal.  Being stranded with Shayla is only making it worse.  For the first time in his life, Creed begins having doubts about his duties. 

In Creed’s time, the government has decided to create a safer society by using drugs to suppress people’s sexual desires.  Creed accepted this and did his job without question until he met Shayla.  She opened his eyes and he realized all the things he was missing in his world.  Maybe there was less chaos, but there was also a lot less happiness.  After being exposed to that much pleasure and emotion, there was no way Creed was going to go back to living without it again.  Now that Shayla and Creed have discovered each other, they are in danger of being torn apart.  Shayla and Creed have an unexpected connection that winds up being their saving grace in the end.  Shayla needed a man like Creed in her life.  I think he restored her faith in men and I know that Shayla changed Creed’s ideas about humanity.  Passion Awakened is the best description ever for this rousing story of two people who found what they didn’t know they were missing.  Losing control of a situation can often times be the best thing ever and I know that readers will agree with me after reading this story.
