Book Description

From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of Bared to You

Stacey Daniels has always been attracted to the wrong type of man . . .

And she knows in her heart the virile, wounded Viking at her front doorstep will certainly be no exception. A vision from her most secret erotic fantasies--a glorious god of a man--he excites her with his tantalizing aura of dangerous sensuality. Stacey knows in the deepest depths of her soul that submission will bring unforeseen peril into her life, and yet she is helpless to resist him--for he is a master of decadent pleasures and sweet sensuality . . . and all she has ever wished for.

But loving Conor carries a burden that no mortal woman can bear. Though he finds solace in Stacey's passion and the warmth of her welcoming body, his true realm is one of darkest dreams, torn by violence and strife, that is now following him into Stacey's world . . .

5.0 out of 5 stars "HEAT" is right!!! January 18, 2008
Format:Paperback
Connor Bruce was left at the end of the first book, angry and feeling betrayed by the Guardians he had sworn to protect. His best friend had found the key--and she wasn't the end of the world--she was just a very special woman. As head of the resistance--he had done has part--found men to assist him, and even found a way to uncover some of the guardians secrets. And what he learned needed to be told to Aidan--and only Conner would be able to gain Aidan trust--so off he goes--giving up the Twilight--and all he loved--to help his friend.

The first person he runs acrossed is Stacy--house sitting for Aidan and Lyssa. You might just say it was lust at first sight--for both of them--and not to long after that it was love. This book, like the first, was a real page turning, with a world unique, and a couple that you come to know, enjoy, love and wish to continue to read more about.

Ms Day had a delicious way of writing a story. Her men are real men, glorious, confident, sexy, unintentionally romantic, tender and they always seem to only enhance the independence of the woman they are involved with. The men are highly sexed---(pure fantasy), but Ms Day carries that off with such a flair it isn't until you find yourself wishing--that you realize no such man exists out there.....

The fact that all her books are extrememly character-driven makes for charaters that are memorable because they become your friends....

5.0 out of 5 stars 5 Klovers - Courtesy of CK2S Kwips & Kritiques January 21, 2008
Format:Paperback
When his captain, Aidan Cross, joined the moral realm in the fight to save humanity from the Nightmares that terrorize them, Connor Bruce was left as the new leader of the Elite warriors. In his position as Captain, he battles both the Nightmares that plague the human world and now also the Elders, whose deceptions are beginning to unravel. In his role as Guardian, Connor fulfills the sensual fantasies of his human charges in their dreams, a job he is more than up to the task for.

Now his team of Elite warriors has uncovered information concerning a new, unforeseen threat that is vital to Cross's mission in the mortal realm, and Connor is the Guardian best suited to undertake the journey to relay this information to his friend. Knowing all too well his trip to the mortal realm may be one way, leaving him stranded far from the Twilight he so loves, he nevertheless is resigned to the sacrifices he must make in order to save mankind from a hellish existence. But when he lays eyes on the delectable Stacey, staying doesn't seem so much like a sacrifice any longer.

Stacey Daniels doesn't know quite what to think when the disturbingly sexy Viking lands on the doorstep of her friend Lyssa's home while Stacey is house-sitting. She is even more unsettled when he insists he will be staying in that house - with her. When he makes clear his amorous intentions towards her, she is completely blown away, but finds herself unable to resist this strange yet enticing man, although she certainly tries.

But enemies abound, even in the mortal realm, and soon they threaten everything Connor and Stacey hold dear.

5.0 out of 5 stars Five Blue Ribbons from Romance Junkies! January 7, 2008
Format:Paperback
Captain Connor Bruce was left behind in the Twilight searching for answers when his best friend and fellow warrior returned to the mortal plane with his fiancé. Outlawed as rebel insurgents, Connor and his elite band of fighters invade the Temple of the Elders looking for clues and secrets of their existence; information denied to them for thousands of years. Encountering a demonic monster, Connor realizes that the Elders have spread falsehoods and that lies abound in his world. Unable to passively sit back and accept things like before, Connor has only one choice to get the answers he seeks - he must travel on a slipstream to the mortal world via a medium.

Stacey Daniels is feeling overwhelmed. Striving for years to be both mother and father to her son, she is disconcerted to have her ex suddenly show up and take her child on a dream weekend. Left with nothing to do, Stacey agrees to house-sit for her best friend. In the middle of feeling sorry for herself the doorbell rings and Stacey is completely overwhelmed and in awe when a giant warrior crosses the threshold. Instantly aroused by this massive male, Stacey does her best to act nonchalant when inside she is craving the touch of this man like none before. The man, Connor Bruce, forcibly lets Stacey know of his intentions to remain until her friend and her friend's fiancé return from their trip. Stacey doesn't know what to do but suddenly finding herself naked and in his arms is definitely not something she planned but something that she craves.

Connor finds Stacey bright, funny, and beautiful - And she's nothing like Connor's former lovers. It seems that Connor's previous paramours pale in Stacey's shadow.

2.0 out of 5 stars When does 'no' mean 'yes'? November 15, 2008
Format:Paperback
Nightmares may seem like imaginary creatures to us, but to the guardsmen of Twilight, nightmares are horribly real--and they've begun infecting the Guardians--the leaders of the long fight against them. Connor, a captain of the rebel guard, must make his way to the land of the dreamers--our ordinary earth--to meet up with his former leader, Aidan.

When Connor arrives, Aidan and his earthling true love are vacationing, and curvy Stacey Daniels is house-sitting while she obsesses about her son's first trip with his long-vanished father. Connor is like a fantasy dream--super-sexy, strong, and absolutely unwilling to take no for an answer. He sweeps her off her feet.

The guardians/nightmares aren't taking the rebellion lightly and have sent agents to complete their mission, to kill Aidan's wife and retrieve certain artifacts. To ensure that Aidan and Connor don't stop them, they kidnap Stacey's son. And that makes it very personal for Connor.

Author Sylvia Day combines paranormal fantasy with erotica in a combination that almost works. For me, when Connor ignored Stacey's 'no' and continued to insist on sex (because, being a dream visitor, he knows she needed it), that crossed far too close to rape, undoing the fantasy. The fantasy plot, involving nightmares, rogue guardians, etc. also didn't work. It wasn't clear to me why the guardians kidnapped Stacey's son, as they didn't really make any demands. As a result, that whole portion of the plot felt more as if it was intended to create an emotional crisis for Stacey rather than something actual people would do.

HEAT OF THE NIGHT is certainly readable and Day steams up the pages. Overall, though, the story fell a bit short of what I'd hoped.
