Product Description

Review

“Susan Krinard was born to write romance.”—Amanda Quick

“Susan Krinard has set the standard for today’s fantasy romance.”—Affaire de Coeur

About the Author

New York Times bestselling author Susan Krinard trained as an artist and has a BFA in illustration from the California College of Arts and Crafts. She became a writer in 1992 when a friend read a short story she’d written and suggested she try writing a romance novel. A longtime fan of science fiction and fantasy, Krinard began reading romances—and realized that what she wanted to do was combine the two genres. Since then, she’s published more than a dozen paranormal and fantasy novels and written stories for a number of anthologies, both fantasy and romance.

Diana Ransom is a psychologist in San Fransisco. When Diana's cousin goes missing, Diana is led to Nicholas Gale, a mysterious man who avoids the daylight. Nicholas is an immortal who has lived through centuries, surviving by skimming the dreams of humans. When Nicholas starts to invade her erotic dreams, Diana find herself attracted to the tall blond stranger.
Don't let the cover put you off from reading the book. I was reluctant to read the book at first because of the embarrassing cover. I'm glad that I managed to read it in the end. This is a very original story of a vampire who survives not by taking blood but by taking life force by weaving dreams. Susan Krinard is one of my favourite authors and her paranormal romances are always gripping reading. The chemistry between Nicholas and Diana is magnetic. The more you read about the dreams, the more you want to find out about Nicholas. The sex scenes are hot but sometimes it's difficult to know whether it is a dream or reality. Nicholas is a gorgeous hero, despite the ugly looking man on the cover. A very original read and highly recommended.

Diana Ransom is a 30 year-old psychologist/therapist, who lives in San Francisco, and carries around lots of excess emotional baggage - "physician heal thyself." While growing up she was very close to her sister Clare, & her cousin Keely. Clare and Keely were aspiring young artists. Diana's creative outlet was through her strong, very vivid dreams and fantasy life, which she was able to create, control and mold at will. Diana's and Clare's parents and Keely's mother were killed in a terrible accident, Keely was separated from the girls by her father, and Clare, who had just reached her majority became young Diana's guardian. After the sisters' terrible loss, Clare began a relationship with a handsome, magnetic man, who she never introduced to Diana. She gave herself over to him completely, until he seemed to drain the very life from her. When he left her she became apathetic, with no will to live. Clare committed suicide. Diana stopped dreaming after her sister's death, but has remained firm in her resolution to find the man she believes was the cause of her sister's fatal unhappiness. She is very wary of men and relationships, and very protective of her cousin Keely who has recently come back into her life.
Keely has recently become involved with a mystery man also, and her situation begins to remind Diana of Clare's. Keely is totally unwilling to discuss the man she is in love with, or to introduce him to Diana. She begins to look strung-out after spending time with him, and then suddenly she disappears. Worried sick, and frantic to find her, Diana introduces herself to mysterious Nicholas Gale, a charismatic businessman, who she believes may be responsible for Keely's disappearance.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Okay, so we've got two gorgeous, identical twin brothers, both of whom are immortal and both who take their sustenance form humans. But are these regular vampires who take the blood of their victims? No, these guys enter other people's dreams (always females, of course), manipulate the dreams to give them an erotic content, and then skim off the person's excess "life force" - some sort of mystical hoodoo. Naturally, one twin longs for mortality while the other revels in his immortality. And, as you must have suspected by now, Twin A finds the woman who can make him mortal, while Twin B tries to do everything in his power to stop him.
See how quickly I told you the plot? It took the author 425 pages. Of course, Twin A never admits to the woman who is his salvation that he has a twin, so we have the whole mistaken identity scenario going on, not to mention the endless, boring dream sequences. (I don't think that I can forgive this author for the cliche of having one of her heroine's favorite fantasies being riding a wild horse on a beach.) The characters are poorly developed - we are given just bits and pieces of the heroine's past (the older sister who was driven to suicide by the loss of her lover, the cousin with the troubled past, the death of her parents), as if that should explain her rather unprofessional (she's a psychologist) and erratic behavior. I was sorely disappointed with this book.

I read this book when it first came out, 2 years ago, but it still sticks in my memory and has been relegated to one of my favorite books. I don't like to give 5 star ratings because you never know about the next book...but this book deserves atleast a 4 1/2 star rating! Susan Krinard writes a wonderful story that is obviously well thought out with dynamic characters and page turning plots. The sexual tensions are usually so thick, one can cut them with a knife. This story makes you stop and think...hmmmm...I know this is impossible, but what if.... That is what makes good fantasy, great. And Prince of Dreams IS great. If you are looking for a good read and not just "fluff" definitely pick up this book.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
This is one of the best novels I've read in a long time. It features the most original treatment of vampires that I can remember seeing (who ever would have thought of a vampire who feeds on dream essence? Well... OK, so at least one person thought of it....).

The story itself may be fascinating, with two vampires who are the last of their race, sibling rivalry, and a gutsy woman who gets caught in the middle, but it's also an absolute scorcher of a romance. Read this one wearing asbestos!

Oh, one last word of warning. You spend 9/10ths of the book loathing the villain, but.... Well, I'm not going to give away the ending. You want to find out, buy the book! It's worth it
