`Heat of the Night' brings the dream world into the real world with this steamy tale by Sylvia Day. The Dream realm has been invaded by Nightmares and its Conner's job as an Elite warrior to protect the Dreamers and the Guardians in both worlds. Connor leads a rebellion that comes about when he and others realized that the Elders of the Dream world have mislead them with lies and secrets. These deceptions now take Connor to the real world to meet up with a former Elite friend, and hopefully together they can put a stop to the Elders destructive plan. Stacey Daniels is house sitting for her friend and is shocked when Connor barges into the home with little introduction and crashes in the nearest bed. While waiting for their friends to return, Stacey and Connor get acquainted with each other, which brings about a consuming passion with feelings neither one was expecting. When the evil from Connor's world threaten Stacey and her son, he must find a way to defeat the evil and convince Stacey that he is from the Dream realm. Can Stacey trust Connor with his fantasy tale before a dark reality tears them apart? Will her past mistakes keep her from finding passion and a love that she has only dreamt about?
Sylvia Day has written a wonderful story with intriguing characters and tantalizing romance. The chemistry between Connor and Stacey will keep you glued to the pages with their blazing desires and riveting plot. Stacey makes a great heroine that pulls you into her life as a single mother trying to make the best out of a life from a past with many mistakes. Connor is the delectable hero that knows how to turn up the heat and melt a woman's heart. It's a great story that melds fantasy and reality into a captivating read and I loved it. I'm looking forward to reading more of Sylvia Day's books as I wait impatiently for her next Dream Guardian novel.
He is a vision from every woman's erotic fantasies. Existing in the twilight beneath sleep and consciousness, Connor brings them decadent pleasures, fueled by their sexual energy. But violence and strife now tear apart both worlds, and Connor must embark upon a quest into the mortal realm . . . and into the arms of one intoxicating enchantress.
Stacey Daniels has always been attracted to the wrong type of men-and the muscular, Viking-like champion on her front doorstep is no exception. She can hardly believe the wounded warrior is from another world, a world where erotic dreams are needed to survive, a world of terrible danger that has followed him to her home. Connor finds solace in her passion, but only time will tell if he can defeat the dark foe who hunts them . . . and if Stacey can surrender to the promise he offers with every electrifying touch.
