Spotlight On Author, Christina McKnight: Only In Her Dreams

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

When Lucessa Sarcona awakes from a recurring dream, she has no idea her life is about to be turned upside down. A stranger, familiar to her dreams, shows up in the flesh, and Lucessa knows she’s either crazy or experiencing something not of this world.
A war ensues between three demigod brothers. One, trained to rule Erebos, is violently replaced. One forced to return to his homeland and lead the dream-gods of the Oneiroi. And one is charged with the impossible task of protecting Lucessa. How is she linked to the Oneiroi? Why do two brothers seek to keep her hidden and protected? And how does another plan to use her against the two demigods who love her?Will Lucessa’s dream man have the courage to claim her as his own or will he bow to the command of another, forsaking the one he loves?Only in Her Dreams is a modern spin on a Greek legend–the new direction of Urban Fantasy and Paranormal Romance, moving from angels, demons, vampires, and witches and toward the realm of demigods.

Now, if you can drag your eyes away from that gorgeous cover, I present to you the sneak peeks you’ve been waiting for!

Excerpt

Chapter 2

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!
