It takes a bewitching young maiden determined to lose her innocence to give him back his will to live.

I have spent many many hours trying to get hold of the prequel to this story 'Born of the Night' and have yet to obtain one. After reading the excellent but far too short Fire and Ice, I am now even more determined to get my hands on a copy.
Daydream Believer by Maggie Shayne
Megan has been plagued by insignicant visions since her family refused to believe her when she foresaw her father's death. When she suddenly starts seeing visions of murder victims she is determined that this killer be caught. Contacting the police, she is put under surveillance after claiming knowledge of the latest victim, information that has yet to be disclosed. Detective Sam Sheridan is asked to investigate her and determine whether she really is psychic or actually in cohorts with the murderer. Yet if Sam admits to believing what Megan claims, then perhaps there is some truth in his family curse, and like his father and grandfather before him he too will die in the line of duty at the age of 35.
Shocking Lucy by Suzanne Foster
Lucy is due to marry Frederick in only 2 weeks and is frantically hunting for a perfect wedding gift for him. It is whilst she is in the department store that she meets Noah, an encounter that stirs some doubts over her forthcoming nuptials before she shrugs them aside. Ok so Fred's merely nearly perfect, after all he only meets 9 of the items on her Fantasy Dude wish list. It's not his fault that he lacks number 10, the ability to give her goosebumps with a kiss. All Lucy's mother wants is to see her beloved daughter sparkle, Fred wants to test her devotion and Noah wants to wake this sleeping beauty with a kiss.
This book had a slow start but the ending was sooooo romantic that it easily made up for any shortcomngs.
Midsummer Night's Magic by Virginina Kantra
Even after 14 years following his disappearance, 36 year old librarian Janet has never forgotten her true love Ross. When her car breaks down in the middle of nowhere she encounters a mysterious and handsome young man, a hunk with an unnatural resemblance to Ross. Drawn to him she is astounded to learn that he really is her Ross trapped in service to the Sidhe Queen Lilith who intends to sacrifice him at the next Equinox. Only Janet has the power to save a man she's not entirely sure wants rescuing.
I read Stroke of Midnight recently, another new anthology containing SK in which her story easily outshone the other authors' works. I am pleased to say that this is not the case with Man Of My Dreams. Each story was excellent (I have yet to be left disappointed by either Kenyon or Shayne) and I will certainly be searching out full length novels by Forster and Kantra. I highly recommend this book for lovers of hot romance with a paranormal twist.
