Format: Paperback
Dream Guardians exist on another plane of existence, only crossing over to mingle with humans on the dream plane, to protect mortals from the Nightmares, who feed on fear. But their mission is twofold: protect mortals from Nightmares, while simultaneously searching for the Key, a mortal who was foretold would open the bridge between realms, bringing destruction with them.

Aidan is one of the most powerful Dream Guardians. He has never failed in a mission, part of which involves playing dream lover to mortal females in order to save them from the Nightmares. He has been with thousands of women, none of whom have seen him for himself or touched his heart. Lyssa Bates is different, in many ways. Not only does she have an unexplainable ability to block the Dream Guardians, one night in her arms leaves Aidan shaken, craving her more. But more and more he begins to fear she is the Key his people have been searching for. He knows to the very depths of his soul she can't possibly be evil, and protecting her from the other Dream Guardians swiftly becomes his primary goal...

Sylvia Day very rapidly became one of my newest favorite authors. When her newest book, Pleasures of the Night was offered to us for review, I did not even stop to read a blurb, I snatched it up without hesitation! Once again, this author did not let me down - far from it! This book satisfied so many of my literary loves: paranormal, romance, erotic... The writing is stellar, as readers have come to expect from a Sylvia Day novel, and the characters are wonderful. I was immediately drawn to both Aidan and Lyssa, and my interest in both only grew as the story progressed.

Format: Paperback
Dream guardians infiltrate dreams and keep people safe from Nightmares. Most of the time, they can enter dreams and make any fantasy come true leaving the dreamer none the wiser the next morning.

Captain Aidan Cross is one such guardian. He is a man that all dream guardians look up to and want to emulate. On the outside, Aidan is the epitome of loyalty and unending fortitude. However, on the inside, he is slowly becoming more and more restless. He senses that all is not what it should be in his search for the prophetic key, and he wants to know why. Entering the dreams of women night after night has become almost blasé until he enters the dreams of Lyssa Bates. He finds himself unable to resist the temptation of visiting Lyssa's dreams time and time again because she is the only person in centuries of dream guarding to have ever seen Aidan for what he is; a man with wants and needs, and his own dreams of being loved.

Lyssa Bates is exhausted - utterly and completely fatigued, but still unable to sleep for more than minute periods of time. Her unexplainable exhaustion escalates her rapidly deteriorating health. On one such day, she collapses on her couch and begins to dream of an enigmatic man who is the model by which fantasies are made. Tall, manly, and downright decadent, the blue eyed man enthralls Lyssa to the point that she doesn't want to him to leave. To her inconsolable dismay, she realizes that he isn't reality; he isn't flesh and blood man.

Aidan experiences both panic and anger when he finds out that Lyssa is in danger because of his careless actions. Unwilling to sit back and watch her be harmed, he searches for a way to get to her.

Format: Paperback
Long ago, a tiny crack had been made by the Elders between the Twilight and our world. There is no way to close the crack and keep the Nightmares out. They could only supply damage control. Nightmares are real beings. The dreams created by the human mind had given Nightmares a new power source to thrive upon. Fear, fury, misery are easily aroused through dreams and fed the Nightmares well. Should the Nightmares enter our world, they will feed on all human dreamers until the race becomes extinct. The Nightmares have done so to other worlds. The Dream Guardians enter a Dreamer's dream, becomes whoever he or she wishes the Guardian to be, and fulfills every erotic desire. By doing so, the Guardians keep the Nightmares at bay and the Dreamers safe. And whenever given the chance, the Guardian kills all the Nightmare entities he is able.

Legend has it that somewhere in our world is a special Dreamer, the Key. For centuries the Guardians have hunted the Key. The Key has the power to open the Gateway and allow the Nightmares free entry. Therefore, once found, the Key is to be eliminated. The Key will be able to bar both Nightmares and Guardians with her door. Once the Guardian gets inside though, the Key will actually be able to see into the Twilight. Thus, Guardians look for four abilities. The Key can see the Guardian's true feature, will know the Guardian's real name, can take control of the dreams, and any nearby Nightmares will become confused and disoriented.

Captain Aidan Cross has been a Guardian for centuries. He now doubts that the Key is anything other than a myth. Yet devoted to the cause, he continues his erotic duties with female Dreamers. Some Dreamers shut away parts of themselves so securely, not even the Guardians could enter.
