I guess the word "dream" in the title should have tipped me off, but the plot here relied heavily on the hero & heroine's shared dreams. They fell in love in parallel-universe dreams before they recognized their feelings in real life. Honestly I felt this was unnecessary because I liked them as they were, and the whole premise of "fate" just felt too heavy handed here. It's a shame because again, I did enjoy some of the story.
Paranormal Romance
Despite the cover this is not a historical romance. The paranormal aspect was the fact that the two characters are reincarnated old lovers. It's very contemporary in that there's not truly an 'evil' character and the plot is very basic and uneventful.

Recommends it for: Readers of romance looking for something a little different

Both hero and heroine shine their brightest when their vulnerabilities are front and c ...more

At the age of ten, Jennifer Archer made up her mind to become a writer. Then she grew up, became “sensible,” and earned a business degree with a minor in accounting instead. After years of trying to find her way through a confusing maze of debits and credits she realized that, for her, accounting was no more sensible than becoming a World Federation wrestler. So in 1993, she enrolled in a creative ...more
