Book Review: Heart Of Dreams

Author: Jeanne Rose
Title: Heart Of Dreams
Publisher: Silhouette Shadows
Publish Date: July 1, 1995
Book Blurb: Mara Fitzgerald couldn't get Luke Naha out of her dreams. Nightly she was haunted by frightening - yet erotic - images of him that left her breathless and wanting. Even more disturbing was the mysterious, brooding Native American's claim that he was having dreams about her. And they were sharing not only dreams, but also memories of the past...

Luke knew the pleasure as well as the pain of entering another person's dreams. But his power had done irreparable damage in the past, and he couldn't let himself lose control again. Yet in his heart he sensed the bliss in his dreams with Mara masked an underlying evil - one that threatened to consume them both.

Review: I don't usually like novels that involve Native Americans, but this one had a plot that really drew me in and kept me reading. I loved the mysticism that involved prophetic dreams and dreaming places.

Luke and Mara really heated up the pages as well. The chemistry between the two was electric, even though Luke was the typical Harlequin Alpha Male jerk throughout most of the story. The secondary characters more than made up for his shortcomings though. It was hard not to love his grandmother and Rebecca, two of the elders of the Kisi tribe.

I really loved the concept of Dreamwalking, and how Luke and Mara shared dreams, and those dreams were pretty spicy!

The fact that Luke and Mara are connected through past lives makes the story doubly great, as well as the evil that is following them and trying to destroy the tribe.

The only thing I wish Jeanne would have developed better was Luke's paintings. I wish something would have been done about the characters in his paintings that collectors felt came to life.

This was really a great read from the old Shadows line and one worth reading if you can find it.

Rating 5 flowers

Sounds great! I actually have an old paperback copy of this book in my TBR pile. :-)
