Dr. Shea Caldwell is the founder of Biodermatics. She is also the host of a Somnambulist, and has been since she was a young girl. Her sleepwalking is both terrifying and deeply disturbing, leaving her mentally and physically exhausted.
Derek Oneiros is a leader in the field of high security. His entire family are also Dream Wreakers or Oneiroi. They ease a sleeper into the deeply restorative REM cycle of sleep, by inducing or facilitating their dreams. He provides the security for Biodermatics giving him the opportunity to meet with the unbelievably beautiful Shea Caldwell.
Shea thought the nightmare of sleepwalking had passed, but now it is raising its ugly head once again. Since she was a young girl, the dark has always held a note of fear and uncertainty. She must go through a nightly ritual of securing her home and most importantly her bedroom. She makes certain that there is no random furniture placement, objects left on the floor, or unlocked doors in her home. To top everything off, she is now concerned that someone is causing problems at Biodermatics. Derek takes a meeting with Shea about her security issues at work, but his concern for her personal safety soon takes the forefront. She is nervous, tense, and fearful of something, not at all her usual self. Keeping things professional is no longer an option; he can feel her fear, and vows to do everything in his power to help her. The sexual tension between them is beyond description, and giving into it leaves them both breathless. Shea is terrified to tell Derek her secrets, but not telling him could be disastrous. Derek and his brothers live by a strict code of silence when it comes to being Dream Wreakers. He must find a way to help Shea before her Somnambulist destroys her life, and if she finds out what he really is, will she ever trust him again?
This story is one of the most passionate and sexy stories I have read in a long time. I loved the sizzling heat between Shea and Derek. Their characters are fabulously sexy, smart, and sensitive. Ms. Dean is a pro of the hot and steamy, but her storyline is just as captivating. The mystery and intrigue are very well developed, and literally pull the reader right into the plot. This is the first I have read from Ms. Dean, but it certainly will not be the last!
