Summary Phantom Lover by Sherrilyn Kenyon:
Haunted by recurring nightmares of terrifying beasts, Erin McDaniels is afraid to sleep-until a hero arrives in her dreams to save her...and makes erotic, incredible love to her. But can she find him again when she is awake?

Review:

Since a few nights, Erin is tormented with nightmares that leave her like a zombie during the day.Behind her desk at work she gets up out of her chair to quickly and the world turns black and she's once again chased by monsters. Fear flutters through her when she's cornered by a ferocious dragon, with no way out she fears for her life. But then, out of the blue, a half woman half snake like creature appears whom gets into a discussion with the dragon. The tail of the dragon slams into a wall creating an opening and Erin escapes with the half woman half snake creature right behind her. She catches up with Erin and there, right in front of Erin a incredible hansom warrior appears and takes her to a forest filled with sunlight and magic, turning this nightmare into a erotic dream.

Erin knows she's dreaming this warrior but she can't resist him and together the weave a passionate web of desire……..then, with a shock, she slams back into her body looking at concerned co workers. She's ordered to go home and take the rest of the week off and Erin calls an sleep therapist to make an appointment. He's referred to her by a colleague and the therapist tells her about the Greek Myth of the Skoti, creatures whom feed of emotions during nightmares, and of Oneroi, warriors whom fight the Skoti when they feed of a human to long.

That night, when she's dreaming again, her phantom lover, V'Aidan comes to her and Erin steps back into a world which she never thought existed. Can she keep this man whom makes her feel alive again, whom lets her creativity blossom and fulfils all her erotic desires? There evil shadows that surround them, rules they break as lovers and they must face the truth when they're pushed of the pink cloud back into reality and there, nothing is what it seems.....

On February 2007 the first full length novel of a dream hunter is published and I can't wait to devour it.Erin and V'Aidan introduces us to a new world Ms.Kenyon has created and though the story sweeps you away to another world it's just on the short side for that reader high, it definitely leaves me wanting for more.
