Re-issued for Pocket Star, this 1985 Silhouette Romance shows its age. While the conflict and central romance might be timeless, the writing style and character’s phrasing remains dated.

OK. Lets say that you adored your 80’s Silhouettes and are feeling nostalgic and remain curious. I would then ask: Do you adore Japanese macaque monkeys too? You’ll have to worship them to enjoy the depth, breath and time dedicated to their description and their troop interactions within the research center. This love of monkeys must be so fervent that you don’t mind when the novel’s heroine, Malou, brings them up constantly. Whether it’s in social comparison to humans or in the heat of the moment, to herself or aloud, her primate musings never fail to disrupt or halt the couple’s progression, and sometimes passion, altogether.

Which brings me to my final sticking point: sex scenes. Cates writes PG/PG-13 canoodling well enough. However, when the lovers breach R-rated territory, explicit and direct is traded for fuzzy and flowery. While this cleaner flourish and floaty detachment might seduce some readers, it didn't arouse me. (I crave gritty, sweaty detail in all of its glory!)

Clearly I am not the audience for this book.

What we have in the case of Different Dreams, is a very sweet and very lovable instance of "been there...done that".
Big bad land developer comes to claim what's his, and ends up displacing (insert species here)_____.
In the process finding the love of his life in the form of put upon, bleeding heart, and knockout beauty (insert rugged damsel here)_____.
What comes as a welcome shock however, is that the research done on said species, in the case macaques, and the interest level that their part in the plot provides; is just the lifeline that this otherwise formulaic storyline needs.
The romance between Cameron and Malou lends itself to the insta-love category, but it is also very "knight in shining Escalade"
And...
Just as with every " you, me, and the wild life" romance; this too is tied with a very warm and fuzzy "we are the world" bow at tale's end.

This is a very quick and sweet read. Perfect for a day at the beach, or a quick escape from the everyday.
