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.

It's reveal about half way through the book that despite the heroine's cheerfulness and positivity she suffers from Agorapho ...more

Recommends it for: Readers of romance looking for something a little different
I adore the idea of falling in love in a "historical era" and then having those feelings transfer into the here and now. This book captures a time-travel romance scenario w/out all the confusing sci-fi elements. The characters are wounded and guarded, but by losing their inhibitions in their dreamscape, they realize how much they're missing out on by shutting the door to relationships in their every day lives. Both hero and heroine shine their brightest when their vulnerabilities are front and c ...more

Just not for me - I especially didn't like the dream sequences.

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
