PLEASURES OF THE NIGHT, by Sylvia Day


I love writing about people communicating in dreams. So this book has a lot of appeal for me.

PLEASURES OF THE NIGHT by Sylvia Day

ISBN: 0061230987

HarperCollins Avon, April 24, 2007

In the Twilight between sleep and consciousness, a battle rages between Dream Guardians and Nightmares. Captain Aidan Cross is a legend, as skilled in fulfilling erotic dreams as he is with the glaive that kills his enemies. Women see Aidan as part of their fantasies...except Lyssa Bates. Exquisite, desirable, enigmatic Lyssa perplexes this immortal seducer because she sees him as he really is. And as he attempts to unravel her secrets the unthinkable occurs: Aidan Cross falls in love.

Lyssa has been having the most incredible dreams about a man whose blue eyes hold the promise of decadent pleasures and tempting intimacies. And then he appears on her doorstep! This intoxicating stranger is just as irresistible as the man of her dreams...but with her surrender there is also grave danger...

Because Aidan is on a mission, and the passion that consumes them body and soul could have dire consequences. Loving the mortal woman prophesied to destroy Aidan's world is not only impossible...it is forbidden.

Intimate scenes where interesting; interesting while coming from a female author. She described in them, what a woman is feeling and expecting to feel and what she needs, very excellent. However the men’s, feeling, our feeling, are coming a little short, I think.

I doubt it, that the species men is truly as understanding, when in “heat”, as her character is.

On the other side, at intimate scenes from male authors, women’s feelings are coming short; sometimes much too short also.

With all my several mates in my lifetime I never found one who jumped me, the moment I entered the house, the kitchen or the living room, as made believe in many novels by male authors.
