Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Military logic is seduced by mystical prophecy in Frank's haphazard series opener. Cmdr. Bronse Chapel leads the best special forces team of the Interplanetary Militia. His loyalty is to his team and his job, which is why his marriage was a failure, but he's intrigued by Ravenna, a woman who appears in his dreams and brings prophetic visions of their meeting as well as dangers to his team. When a devious admiral sends Bronse's team on a suicide mission, Bronse finally meets his dream woman. The omniscient narration follows minor characters, but leaves out large portions of Ravenna's plight, and a rushed final subplot could have been left for the sequel. Frank's world is intriguing, however, and the expectation that many of the characters will develop relationships in future installments makes the backstory info dumping more forgivable. (Apr.)

More About the Author

Hi there. It's me! Again. Time to update some more. I am rounding the bend into the double 4's (44 on 2/22/2012) and things are changing so fast in the writing world. I've expanded my online presence to include Facebook and Twitter, a website a blog and every other bleeping thing there is out there in the cyber world. Was finding it hard to manage all that exposure and get work done at the same time, so I now have a full-time assistant, named Natalie. Feel free to contact her for any of your authoring, blogging, promotional requests at natalie@jacquelynfrank.com. She's a good egg and will answer all of your questions, big or small and see to it that I get back to you in a timely manner. I am writing for three different lines (Zebra, Aphrodisia and Ballentine) and under two names (JAX is for my steamier stuff...and yes, it does get steamier!) And I am in over half a dozen languages now! INCUDING a full line of NIGHTWALKERS audio books with the glorious narration of the superb Xe Sands. I'm thrilled with the job she did!

ADAM has just debuted and my fingers are crossed that it will do well. The first hints are that you all LOVE IT and HATE IT and LOVE IT and...well, that's kind of the reaction I was hoping for. ;) Hehehe. What good am I if I can't torment my readers?

I'm still living in Asheville, NC. My kitty family has swelled to *wince* TEN cats. I was fostering and...I found it so hard to trust anyone would give them a better home than me! Is that ego or arrogance or just trust issues?

Email will always be welcomed. I am a tech queen and my laptop has grown roots into my thighs. (And my bottom has grown them into my recliner). I am so thrilled about all of my books and I want to know what everyone thinks of them! I think it would be fascinating to hear what my readers would like to see happen in the Nightwalker world as the series advances. I receive emails at jackifrankwrites@gmail.com these days. Feel free to say hi! Natalie will see to it I get back to you in one way or another. :)

If you haven't tried me, please do. I always recommend starting with JACOB. Or if you don't want to invest in a series, go for DRINK OF ME. It's a stand alone.

Enjoy,
Hugs and Kitties,
Jacquelyn Frank

Customer Reviews

I loved the characters.
Olivia Kevwitch
There's science fiction without too much nerdiness, military action without too much boring detail, and sex.
A. Chapman
A bit predictable at times, I always hate knowing how the book will end.

I thought Seduce Me in Dreams was pretty good, and even though Franks takes her paranormal romance act to a sci-fi setting this time, Seduce Me in Dreams very much fits her formula which means that Seduce Me in Dreams falls a bit more on the steamy side of the steam vs story balance.

Seduce Me in Dreams kicks off with an attention grabbing opening as our alpha male hero Commander Bronse Chapel piggy-backs a critically wounded special forces team member out of hostile territory on a dessert planet. The next few chapters bog down as we are brought up to speed with our hero's history, get up close and personal with several members of his team, and are introduced to our petite yet powerful heroine Ravenna who visits our hero in his dreams long before they meet in the flesh. I would have been happier if I'd gotten the in-depth bios a little later in the story once I was a bit more invested in the characters - since there were a lot of good characters among Chapel's team and Ravenna's little family of psychics.

But once the story got going, I found that I really liked Bronse despite being conflicted at times about the way that Ravenna causes him to loose his center and his focus, and how after a big speech to Ravenna about how he has been taught to cherish woman before they 'join' for the first time, he is no where as considerate during their second encounter. I didn't connect as well with Ravenna, she is so busy being strong all the time that I thought she was a little flat, but I am hugely hero-centric so that wasn't a deal breaker for me.

Speaking of hero material, I really loved Bronse's second in command Lasher and he is clearly positioned to take the lead when the series continues with Seduce Me in Flames. And with a great deal of the series setup out of the way, I am actually looking forward to seeing where Franks takes Lasher and Bronse's new and expanded team next time round.

Bronse is the head of a unit that's the best of the best of the Interplanetary Militia's first response teams - they get sent into situations where no one else can get results. He's been having fleeting dreams warning him that he's in danger, dreams that seem to have proven correct since he's carting his new communications officer who's been critically injured, across miles of black sand to their waiting ship, from a mission the two were on that went completely, inexplicably wrong. When they rejoin his team, his odd behavior draws their attention and he confesses to his second-in-command, Lasher, that he's had a gut feeling that he's going to die on a mission and asks him to warn the team to be on alert. Later, he has his first real dream where he sees the beautiful woman who's been warning him.

Ravenna is the leader of the Chosen Ones, a group of young people with special gifts who live in a temple and were protected and worked for the people of their village as healers, telepaths and more. Ravenna and her brother Kith were sold by the villagers to a vicious warlord as an offering to their god - Ravenna is a precognitive, among other things, and she's foreseen danger to Bronse, as well as his role in her rescue. She's been trying to warn him, but didn't know she'd be able to appear to him and was as shocked as he was to find herself standing in front of him in his dream.

It isn't long afterwards that Bronse and his crew find out that they've been betrayed from within the IM and Ravenna's warning becomes clearer - Bronse must not be separated from his team. She's also desperate for him to fulfill the second part of her vision and rescue her because now she's being tortured for her captor's amusement.

Ravenna's precog abilities aren't in doubt.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
I had not read Jacquelyn Frank before picking up SEDUCE ME IN DREAMS, but I'm always on the look out for a new SF Romance read. This one didn't disappoint. Bronse is a sexy and powerful leading man, even if he does say goofy things like "By the Great Being!" Ravenna is a nice complement to him, though I didn't feel as close to her character as Bronse's--not sure if the constant head-hopping wouldn't allow me to get into her POV or if when I finally could get into it, I was yanked into another character's head. The head-hopping was my biggest concern with the book (and the interchangeable use of first and last name and call sign), but it wasn't enough to keep me from reading it in a couple of days.

Franks' world and characters prompted the five star rating from me. The sex was great, too. Lasher may have been my favorite character, so I hope we'll get to see a book mainly about him later. In fact, I haven't been as excited about an upcoming release as I am about SEDUCE ME IN FLAMES, her next installment in the Three Worlds universe.

Since reading DREAMS, I've started on Franks' Nightwalker series, reigniting my interest in paranormal romance, but I'm still waiting patiently for FLAMES.

It is said that you cannot judge a book by its cover. It is also said that the first bite is with the eye and clothes maketh the man. Which cliché applies here is open for debate but one thing is clear: the tragedy of this book is that many will be put off by the cover.

It is stereotypical "bad paranormal romance". It screams "I am reading badly-written sex scenes surrounded by absolutely no plot". It is completely unrelated to the pages within. Who is it supposed to be? It can't be Bronse--he has chest hair and a torso crisscrossed with scars, whereas the ripply dude on the cover looks like he's just finished his community service period working as the test model at the International School of Waxing, and seems more likely to wangst about scars to his sensitive soul than to his pristine flesh. And the less said about that tattoo the better.

But brave the cover (and that title) and you'll find a really good book lurking beneath.

Bronse Chapel is the commander of the First Active squad of the ETF, a sci-fi special forces unit--sort of a space SAS--who are the best of the best. Given all of the dirty tasks, the jobs nobody thinks are possible, the First Active lives and works by the motto "no fear/no fail/no fatality", and Bronse is the cool, clear-headed, hewn-from-granite leader, the epitome of the elite soldier.

Or he was until she turned up.

Bronse is having disturbing dreams about Ravenna, a sensual, seductive woman with a disturbing message: Bronse is in mortal danger. His death is imminent and if he allows himself to be separated from his team he will die. What follows is an entertaining story, mixing action and drama, with treachery, deceit, and tension aplenty.
