While Genny Austin recovers from the trauma of seeing her husband murdered outside their Santa Barbara condo, she experiences recurring nightmares with strange, primitive undertones. Symbolic meaning and past life regression lead Genny to sleep specialists and doctors. When a drunken gang attempts to rape her, Jack Brennan steps in like a guardian angel to prevent this violation. He still grieves for his wife and can relate to Genny's pain. As this complicated story progresses, the dreams persist whenever sleep overtakes her. Digressions into frightening past centuries bring back memories that convince Genny of her own reincarnation. An excellent book for lovers of the paranormal genre and another talented, well-executed delivery by Martin.
I am an avid fan of Kat Martin. I favor Historical Romance, however, when one of my favorite HR writers ventures into the contemporary genre, I give them a chance to impress me. Paranormal is not a subject I normally buy.
What made me sit up and read eagerly to the end, is the fact that historical or modern subject, Kat Martin is one of the most unique, masterful writers we have today. Every chapter was well written and defined to perfection. Kat's hero and heroine, Jack and Genny, come to life, enabling me to automatically take them personally to heart. "The dream" is one of the most enjoyable, well plotted contemporary novels I've read to date.
If you're looking for a well written, interesting read, I highly recommend Kat Martin's novel, "The Dream". Seldom do I read a contemporary novel a second time. This one I will. Too many details and marvelous plot turns to absorb the first time around.
(From book cover) Kat Martin writes irrestible novels that blend the eerie and unexplainable with her own uniquely sensual and exciting style.
This is one of a series, and I highly recommend it.
If you've read other books by Kat Martin and liked her style you'll want to read this one.
Genny Austin are having nightmares of a past she can't recall or don't want to recall. Then she meets Jack Brennan who are having nightmares but his are real. His business is under siege and his life is being threaten. So what happens when these two people meet.
think Ms. Martin had a good idea with this book. With the widow, and the seaman; and they have completely opposite likes, and personalities. But after a while, I got tired of the dreams the woman was having. She wasn't having much progress, and she couldn't sleep a whole lot. That was her major issue.
And the man, his issue was who he could get into bed the fastest. And even though he seemed like he cared about the woman, the only words that kept coming out of his mouth was, how soon could he sleep with the her. Or who was the next sleeze at the bar he could get into his bed. And that got old fast too.
It was like the issues Ms. Martin took of these too, and kept banging them against a wall.
I eventually dropped the book, and stopped reading.
Needless to say, I liked the 'idea' of the book, but not the progress of the storyline.
