Sleep has never been easy for Shea Caldwell. The beautiful scientist has long
been prey to a Somnambulist, a parasitic creature who feeds off of the
sensations it derives from its human hosts. Shea never knows what she might do
when she is sleepwalking, and the knowledge that she might be capable of doing
anything, even harming someone she cares for, chills her to the bone.
It is Derekís job to recognize when one of his charges has a problem sleeping
and to fix it. With Shea, his interest goes far beyond mere responsibility into
a more personal realm. Derek canít keep his mind off Shea Caldwell, even if she
is off limits to him. Even still, heíll do everything in his power to protect
Shea is all too attracted to her security specialist, Derek Oneiros. That pesky
little problem with her Somnambulist guarantees she canít have a relationship,
however Ė not without endangering the people she loves.
I have heard good things about Kimberly Deanís work, enough that I was more than
curious to read something by this author. When I read the synopsis for IN
HER WILDEST DREAMS, I knew I had to read this one. It appealed to my
love of mythology and my penchant for steamy romance, and so I snapped this one
OH. MY. GOSH. This book rocked my world! IN HER WILDEST DREAMS
is one of those books that you donít read so much as you feel it. Every
emotion leaps off the page and embeds in the readers own heart, ensuring that
they experience the story along with the characters.
And oh, what I wouldnít love to experience with Derek Oneiros! This man is
fiercely protective, dangerously sexy, and knows just how to wreak complete
havoc on a womanís senses. If that werenít enough, he is seriously noble,
willing to do anything to protect the woman he loves even when he believes he
has no chance of ever being with her. When he learns how mistaken he is in that
perception, the results are absolutely explosive!
My heart just broke for Shea. She is so sweet, so intelligent and capable, and
yet this one thing has haunted her for most of her life, prevented her from
really living life to the fullest. She yearns for more, for love and romance,
but she denies herself with the belief that she is too dangerous to be around Ė
at least while asleep. Watching as she finally is able to let herself go with
Derek was absolutely wonderful.
Through it all, Ms. Dean weaves a really intriguing suspense storyline, with
enough twists to keep you guessing the villainís identity until the very end.
OH. Did I mention the numerous yummy brothers Derek just happens to
have? Iím thinking that spells SEQUELS GALORE. *big grin* At least, I am
dearly hoping for some! IN HER WILDEST DREAMS is the kind of
romance that makes a reader an instant fan!
