1988. Boy, was this a book set in its published date time. The stereo-typical characters wore me out. I finished it only because I am compulsive and can't leave things unfinished. I was ready to bash Savagar over the head. He was a jerk.

I think Krentz lost track of her story as she went along. The whole Native Americans or whoever Diana and Colby were supposed to be reincarnating got lost as the book went on, which made the ending just as weak and useless and expected as the beginning.

I believe the two parts were originally published as two books in 1988. I am glad I bought them together in A Shared Dream published in 2001. Both parts are wonderful, but it is better to read them together. Once again, the characters, Diana Prentice and Colby Savagar, are interesting characters who grip you right away. I rarely dislike a JAK main character. They are so believable. I had a little trouble with the dream and legend themes, mainly because I'm not much into the paranormal, but Ms. K ...more

Dreams Part 1 & 2 is an interesting ebook; it was originally published as two separate books as Harlequin Temptations book #229 (Dreams Part 1) and #230 (Dreams Part 2), both published in 1988. It works well as one single book; I imagine it was rather awkward as two, since it's so obviously a continuation. There's a bit of recap at the beginning of part 2, but I can't imagine that a reader would have been able to pick up part 2 and read it on its own without reading part 1.

It is great to read an earlier work by one of your favorite authors. What I like most about Jayne's books is the tight story lines and uniqueness of her characters. I enjoyed the story and the characters very much. I might read it again.
Quite enjoyable. Even surprisingly so, for a romance novel from the late 80s, with only a touch of the over-the-top machismo that so characterizes romances of that era.

And also just a touch of paranormal woo-woo. Which is how I like it best -- just a smidge.
