Editorial Reviews

About the Author

I'm a life-long fan of paranormal romance and The Man of my Dreams is the first novel in a series. The sequel (Be Careful What You Wish For) is nearly complete and nearing the editing stage. My inspiration for this series lies close to my heart, for I have my own dark haired man of my dreams, Barry. I am also a big fan of the short lived TV show Moonlight and its lead, Alex O'loughlin. Watching this show gave me the push I needed to start writing I am a stay at home mum of 4 children and write whenever I get the chance. Writing is and always has been my passion. My books are for you - my fans, who share my love of romance and everything paranormal. I hope you will continue on this journey with me.

More About the Author

A survivor of sexual abuse, I have recently written the true account of my childhood, titled: Life After Hell: Surviving Sexual Abuse. I have tried to convey what happened to me as well as my journey to finally getting justice.

A lot of my own experiences have gone into my fictional works, especially my first book The Man of My Dreams. I created a vigilante vampire that rescues women and children from rapists and child molesters......

I've loved Vampires and the paranormal ever since I can remember and always envisaged myself writing a book or two on the subject! I have written 5 books in The Dream Series so far: The Man of my Dreams, Be Careful What You Wish For, The Chosen One, Succubus: An Erotic Companion and A Match Made in Hell. All Paranormal Romance novels with Vampires(of course) as well as a bit of blood and gore thrown in and the 4th one is slightly on the erotic side! These characters are very close to my heart and I hope you will come to love them as much as I have.

I've also written my first Contemporary Romance trilogy which will be released in July 2014. The "Someone to Love Me" series will consist of 3 novellas: Undeserving, Unforgiving and Understanding. I hope you enjoy them.

I recently published a short story (Why Won't Someone Help Me?) about my health issues and the trouble with getting diagnosed or treated for invisible illnesses.

The Man of My Dreams follows Cassie, a girl that dreams of her savior, or she thinks she's dreaming. It turns out that what she thinks are dreams may be more real then they seem.

In all honesty, it's a bit difficult for me to lay out a summary of this novel as there are so many things the story bounces between as you're reading. One minute Cassie is having sexy dreams and the next minute a serial killer is planning his next move. For a good portion of the book I didn't truly understand how the two seperate stories fit together. It's almost as if the author got so caught up in their attempt to surprise the reader that they may have left a little too much out to begin with.

Besides the jumpyness of the storyline, there seemed to be a lot of missing time in between chapters. One chapter would end and the next one would pick up in a completely different spot that didn't always make sense right away. I understand the need to jump when the story was breaking to a different narrator, as some chapters did, but I felt there was a void between some chapters that followed the same portion of the storyline.

My biggest qualm with this novel was the fact that it didn't seem to have a lot of depth. The characters were a bit shallow, the scenes were a bit vague, and I was left with an overall feeling of wanting more. The storyline itself wasn't bad. I feel it had a lot of potential going into the book. However, the delivery just didn't fulfill me.

First off, I would like to say that I am not usually a big fan of books that have rape and molestation in them. I will say that this book does not dwell on the subject and the scenes are brief. On to a better note, I love the concept of a hero vampire. I’m not sure how I would take to having someone enter my dreams and having it feel so real. I found that I feel for Cassie and all the struggles she goes through. The uncertainty and questioning her sanity is not an easy thing to cope with.

Decided to try this author/story when it was available as a free download. I would have rated it as 4 stars up until the end. Although I agree with another reviewer that the writing was a bit amateurish/fan fiction-ish (and the formatting errors in my copy took away from smooth reading flow), I was quickly drawn in by the story, as well as the twist on the traditional vampire lore. Unfortunately, there were too many critical points either glossed over (um, the "gift"?) or ignored, especially at the end, which dropped my rating to 3 stars.

I realize that the author contemplated a sequel (thus, the cliffhanger) but still, the end scene seemed rushed, poorly thought out, and defied the normal suspension of disbelief for fiction. Likeable enough as a free read but given the plethora of vampire fiction, not enough to pay to see if this particular author's writing/story gets any better.

ADDED 09-09-2012: To clarify, I don't generally mind a cliffhanger in preparation of the next book (setting the stage, if you will), but it bothers me as a reader when not properly done and/or it adversely affects the current book. Yes, books in a series are generally linked together in some way or have a common arc, but the discrete plot/arc of each book usually should be resolved by the end (sort of like finishing the framework of a house before moving on to the sheetrock, plumbing, etc).

The way this book ended, the "cliffhanger" was for this story (which I took as how/why Cassie and and her dream man get together), not for the next (which, based on the blurb, appears to be how their relationship develops within an expanded storyline).

I received this book as a gift for an honest review ~waAr~

I really enjoyed this book. Cassie is a likeable character, altho things never seem to go right for her, she holds it together and is not some simpering, crying fool that most portray as the normal "damsel in distress" altho i would enjoy more clarification on when shes talking to herself or her "dream man"

it was a very interesting read, and i can not wait to read book 2.

Ebook: The Man of my Dreams (The Dream series)
Author: Gladys Quintal
Fiction, Paranormal,
This review may contain spoilers
I was given this for an honest review by the author
Summary: Ever since the death of her parents at the age of 17, Cassie has been dreaming about a dark haired man. He always comes to her in times of trouble to comfort her and help her through the toughest of days. But now after the devastating break up with her boyfriend, Cassie struggles with separating reality from her dreams.
During a trip to her family beach house, her dream man becomes her lover and Cassie finds herself longing for this man to be in her life. But trying to find out the truth about him leaves her questioning her very existence and sanity.
She is convinced her dream man is real and connected to a string of macabre murders over the last 20 years. Fearing for her life, Cassie prays she is right about him and that he can save her before it is too late.
Note from author: WARNING : This book mentions an episode of sexual abuse. There are 2 attempted rape scenes as well as a depraved serial killer.
The Review
Well this was Dark but Oh so awesome, OK straight off, there are some disturbing scenes, so not suitable for those that don't like that in a story, I thought it added a lot to the story and without it, you would never understand the background and Why they behaved like they did in the book, Right so onto the review, I loved Cassie's dream man, he sounds like the man of my dreams, I have loved Vampire Stories for a while now, but her dream man differs from most, as he does give in to his bloodlust, but in a very different way, won't say anymore, try not to give too much of a spoiler in my reviews.
