He comes from the future—and teaches her how to come in the present.
No matter what century you’re from, love is love, passion is passion, and emotions…well without emotions you have neither. This book will melt your heart as the heroine and hero help each other and those around them tackle obstacles that seem insurmountable.
After years in an unhealthy, unhappy marriage, Roxy finds herself suddenly ‘turned on and tuned in’ by an erotic phone caller, even though it was the wrong number! Soon each and every dream is filled with her own dream man who fulfills everything she ever hoped sex could be. When he walks into her book store spouting the strangest tale, she thinks he’s nuts but still can’t get him out of her mind.
Brett Sperry is looking for a long lost ruler from another time and thinks Roxanne knows where he is. He’s supposed to find the unwilling leader and escort him back to his own time period, thousands of years in the future but the lure of Roxy’s erotic dreams and a special psychic connection between them keeps distracting him from his job.
While she fights the magnetic attraction, he struggles to focus on his mission while the ruler hides from shape-shifting ‘Users’ who seek to destroy him. Launch into a story filled with emotions, love and healing while allowing love to conquer all.
When you cross a 45th century magical hunk with a 21st century no-nonsense woman who believes she’s sexually dysfunctional, the sparks are sure to fly. Toss in an insensitive, self-absorbed ex-husband, his mentally ill middle-aged sister, and a sweet old lady, and you have the makings of a story rich with everything it takes to build characters who interact from one range of emotions to another, leaving you reeling from tears to guffaws.
Dreams bond the hero and heroine on a sexy, erotic see-saw of passion that climbs higher and higher as the story goes. This tale takes you literally out of this world as our heroine finds that even with the most magical moments it takes the power of belief to make it real. This story is definitely a 4.5 on the Cherry scale! Well done.
