In the Twilight between sleep and consciousness, a battle rages between Dream Guardians and Nightmares.  Captain Aidan Cross is a legend, as skilled in fulfilling erotic dreams as he is with the glaive that kills his enemies.  Women see Aidan as part of their fantasies…except Lyssa Bates.  Exquisite, desirable, enigmatic Lyssa perplexes this immortal seducer because she sees him as he really is.  And as he attempts to unravel her secrets the unthinkable occurs:  Aidan Cross falls in love.  Lyssa has been having the most incredible dreams about a man whose blue eyes hold the promise of decadent pleasures and tempting intimacies.  And then he appears on her doorstep!  This intoxicating stranger is just as irresistible as the man of her dreams…but with her surrender there is also grave danger…  Because Aidan is on a mission, and the passion that consumes them body and soul could have dire consequences.  Loving the mortal woman prophesied to destroy Aidan’s world is not only impossible, it’s forbidden.


This was one of last year’s NRCA books I finally got around to reading, and boy howdy, am I glad I did!!  Day has created an intriguing, fully fleshed-out universe peopled with fascinating characters.  In this, the opening story, Aidan and Lyssa are great, both together and apart, which can be a rarity in the romance world.  Day actually had the cojones not only to put her hero/heroine into separate planes of existence, but to have them live their lives during the daytime hours, bringing them together only under the cover of darkness.  And when they do hook up…whoooweee boy.  Steamin’ hot love scenes that’ll fog up your glasses.  The plot itself is tight and intricate, and you’ll be reeled in pretty much from page one.


As a rule, I don’t usually buy trade-size books, but I’m making an exception for the second book in this series…it’s already on it’s way from Amazon!
