"What is a dream if not a soul's whispered secret?"
When Professor Alex Simon moved to Canyon, Texas from England, he welcomed the opportunity to change his locale. Not only would he be aiding his recently widowed sister, but he would have a chance to forget a failed relationship. One in which his fiancée had tried to change him. He knew he was not dashing, but he wasn't the dullest knife in the drawer. Perhaps he might be a bit set in his ways . . . Maybe he could use a little more excitement. He gets more than he bargained for when he encounters his attractive next door neighbor. He could do without her prickly nature, and that little dog too. Until he found an alternative, he would have to settle for the vicarious adventures in the western novels he'd recently discovered.
Robin Wise is less than impressed by her new neighbor-- and his little devil-cat. The feline taunts her dog, and its stuffy owner has the gall to blame her pup for the squabbles. At a second glance, Alex isn't quite as nerdy as he seems. As a matter of fact, when he isn't insulting her dog, he can be quite charming. She didn't need charming. She has her own problems. Such as the inherited curse looming over her impending thirtieth birthday. Until Robin can overcome the hex, she can't indulge in any fantasy she might have regarding the more-perfect-by-the-minute professor. No matter how she wishes she had the courage to act on the awakened desire in her heart.
By day Robin and Alex fight their feelings of attraction. By night, however, their souls have another way of dealing with one another. For you see, when they meet in their dreams, the wishes they make in their hearts really do come true....
