Originally published in the anthology Everlasting Love by Linda Howard, Jayne Ann Krentz, Linda Lael Miller, Kasey Michaels and Carla Neggers.
Dreams and reality collide—with potentially deadly consequences—in this stunning novella from New York Timesbestselling author Linda Howard, available for the first time as a standalone ebook at an unbeatable price!
House painter Thea Marlow hasn’t been sleeping very well. Her nights are plagued by dreams, the setting by the water and the mysterious man who appears in them always the same. But the outcome of the dream changes nightly: sometimes the man loves her...and sometimes he kills her. Desperate for some much needed relaxation, Thea travels to her family’s remote country lake house. Imagine her surprise when a knock at the door reveals the man from her dreams...who happens to have just rented the house next door.
So will he love her—or will he kill her?
There's not much that can be said without giving everything away, This is a very short novella length story. It's actually not that easy to figure out where the author is going with the story. It's like a really good book but condensed into a short story. I found it interesting and intriguing but without enough details. I wish it would have been expanded some so it would not have been so rushed and the story line rolled out slower. What i can say is i did enjoy what there was to read. I decided to read this because i have been a fan of Linda Howard and even as a re-released story i wanted to read it. The writing as always was good and for what little there was quite engaging. I just wish we could have gotten to know the characters better.
