I’m super excited today to be pimpin’ out a fellow author friend’s debut urban fantasy/paranormal romance novel, Only In Her Dreams, The Oneiroi Book 1. I’m currently reading the book myself, and although I’m not far into it yet, I already know from the excerpts I’ve read it’s going to get my “Wow” seal of approval. And now you’ll have that opportunity as well! Christina has given it up and provided us with an awesome excerpt from Only In Her Dreams!
Before we get to that excerpt, let’s take a look at the cover I’ve been drooling over and a synopsis of what it’s all about.
Synopsis- Only In Her Dreams, The Oneiroi Book 1
Now, if you can drag your eyes away from that gorgeous cover, I present to you the sneak peeks you’ve been waiting for!
Maxim watched her enter the room through the back door. She looked so different from when he observed her in her dreams. They were not his to control, only to observe–from a distance. Most of them took place before her father died, therefore she appeared as a child of about seven. Gone were the long, stringy brown pigtails, and in their place was a mane of rich mahogany hair that hung just past the middle of her back. The oversized pants and flowered t-shirt were replaced with a pair of skin-tight jeans and a blue polo that read ‘The Queen Bean.’
His first trip to Earth in twenty-two years, and all he could do was stare at the girl he’d watched over for more than two decades. Maybe his brother was right; the Oneiroi weren’t meant to interact with humans. It wasn’t safe–for humans or his kind. This must be why his father, Morpheus, forbade the Oneiroi to pass between the two worlds all those years ago. The temptation was just too great.
She looked up at the clock and then her eyes met his. In them he saw recognition, confusion, fear, and then panic. His thoughts of staying an invisible, silent observer were gone. Her eyes seemed to be drawn to him. It was time to go; he’d done enough damage. Guy expected him to stay hidden and unknown to the girl. He stood and walked out the front door of the coffee shop, determined to find a better way to protect her.[/box]
Okay now I’m tempted all over again and I must leave you all to go and dig into this great story! But before I do, I want to make sure you have all the info to go and get your own copy!
