He is the realization of every woman's erotic fantasies. Existing in the Twilight between sleep and consciousness, Connor brings them decadent pleasures, fueled by their sexual energy. But violence and strife now tear apart both worlds, and Connor must embark on a perilous quest into the mortal realm ... and into the arms of one intoxicating enchantress.
Stacey Daniels has always been attracted to the wrong type of men -- and the muscular, Viking-like champion on her front doorstep is no exception. She can hardly believe the wounded warrior is from another world, a world where erotic dreams are needed to survive, a world of terrible danger that has followed him to her home. Connor finds solace in her passion, but only time will tell if he can defeat the dark foe who hunts them ... and if Stacey can surrender to the promise he offers with every electrifying touch.

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....
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.

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.Read more ›
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.
