Awakened: The Steel Brothers Saga, Book 16 Audible Audiobook – Unabridged
His voice enthralls her. Her vibrancy awakens him.
Ashley White can’t wait to begin her internship at Steel Vineyards. As an oenology doctoral candidate, she knows all the theory but lacks practice. Working under renowned winemaker Ryan Steel - and his equally talented nephew, Dale - is an opportunity she can’t refuse.
Dale Steel is a loner. Despite his huge family full of uncles, aunts, and cousins, he’s more at home in his vineyards, where he finds something that comes close to the tranquility he craves. He’ll never find true peace, and he’s accepted his fate...until his new intern shows up and turns the only world he knows upside down.
Ashley awakens emotions in Dale that he never dreamed possible, and though he resents her intrusion into his life, he can’t deny the sparks that blaze between them. Still, he must remain distant. To succumb to his growing feelings would provoke something else entirely - the darkness he keeps hidden even from himself.

Dale, adopted at 10 by Talon and Jade Steel, (who you met for the first time in Craving) has emotional baggage that no one knows about. He does not want to let it out, yet Ashley (an intern who he does not think is needed at the winery) is bringing to the surface.
This book has it all, Intrigue, slight suspense, some terror and love...
I loved everything about this book. Helen Hardt, is a master at her craft.
Bring on Cherished, the next installment in the series.
You HAVE to read this series in order, starting with book one, Craving, or you will not know what is truly happening too, or by whom.
This review is rated with 5 stars, for this book is worth that plus some.
There was no plot in this book to speak of. Did we really need page upon page of a wine tasting? The wee bit of sexual tension between the two main characters is not enough to save this poor attempt at soft-core porn. Ms. Hardt doesn't even seem to be trying; she's phoning it in.
I have no idea what book some of the reviewers had read, but their reviews bore no relation to that I read.
Dale Steel, son of Talon and Jade and the beginning of the second generation Steel’s, the little boy who has so much resentment held from his past, that has caused him to become an introvert. He doesn’t know how to express his emotions, doesn’t know what love is or understand the need for the emotion. To him, love is a pathway to hell and has no desire to ever experience the emotion.
Ashley White, a girl with a past that she hides from most, has taken her unnerving past and used it as an opportunity to make something better. She has been with a lot of men in her past, always for just one night as she has never wanted to settle down with another. Until she meets Dale Steel, she instantly feels a connection to him, a need to “taste” his essence.
The interactions between these two characters was like none other that Helen has written about. Each of their pasts has contributed to their personality and Helen has described these two to perfection. She will make you feel their hurt, feel their pain, and understand their hesitations. The anticipation for Cherish is unbearable and unavoidable yet the excitement for March to come is the beginning to an enjoyable continuation of the Steel Brothers.

While reading all 16 books (very eager for 23rd march) its easy to forget your reading a book, its like been pulled into a whole new world, the characters, feelings, raw emotion just pull you in deeper.
I'm a huge Steel Brothers fan, totally addicted, but I cant offer spoilers (I dont like receiving them either) but the passion between the characters is something out of this world!
Have to start the blood bond saga while I wait with anticipation for the next Steel Brothers!
