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've 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! The characters I've created are very close to my heart and I hope you will come to love them as much as I have.

Cassie was able to continue on with her life never remembering the horror she experienced, and had both her parents love and support every single day. Until that fateful day when she was seventeen and a drunk driver ran into there car head on, killing her mother and father, leaving her an orphan. She grew from this knowing she wanted to help others so she became a nurse at the very hospital she was taken to. She greatly enjoyed her job, even though the trusts her parents left her meant she didn't need to work a day if she didn't want to. Being happy and wealthy the only other thing she truly wanted was a family of her own.
Cassie thought she had found the perfect man that she would spend the rest of her life with, but suddenly after over six years together he up and left. She was so distraught until He showed up, the mystery man that had saved her after the accident. He has appeared to her before when she was sleeping and it she'd that he still was. He appeared to have a deep love for her and she felt the same about him. One night they shared a very passionate very intimate event that left her with his seed.
She didn't understand how she could get pregnant by a man in her dreams, so naturally she thought it was her ex who impregnated her. Though with him no longer in her life she was ready to raise the baby on her own. She came to rely on the man of her dreams but when he no longer came around she felt lost. One night she again was facing great danger and feared she would not only lose her life but the babies as well. She hoped with her whole heart that her dream man would rescue her and he hoped that one day she could accept him as he was.
This story is one of longing for love, of overcoming that which we think cannot be overcome, and letting go enough to accept that which we may not fully understand. It allows us a glimpse at what it may feel like to hide from others in fear they will not accept the things about ourselves that we feel they would be unable to understand. This is a great story that is passionate and inspirational!!!
Great book! I believe this is the author's first book, and let me say she did a wonderful job! I was so engrossed with this story that I did not want to put it down. It is a love story like no other,
Cassie is a young woman who had a troubled childhood, that she can not remember. All she knows is that a Guardian Angel saved her and he visits her while she sleeps and in her trouble times. That was a unique twist to this book as I have not read a book yet that adds that to its story. She wished he was real as she has already fallen in love with him. But will she ever get her wish? I found Cassie to be a very strong headed woman and I enjoyed that. But I do think the author should have made their "love" more than just about looks. Cassie is in love with him but always brings up that he is gorgeous and she hardly knows him. He finds he loves her but why Cassie? Is there something special about her? There could have been more information with the characters. Maybe in book two if there is one.
There are two semi-graphic rape scenes in this book so reader beware.
In this book you have the paranormal, mystery, romance, and a great story line. I was amazed at the ending of this book, and hope there is a book two in the works.
It's an easy read, not complex but enjoyable. The sex isn't explicit, but it was sensual none the less. I highly recommend "The Man of My Dreams" and if your not a literary critic as some readers fancy themselves, I think you will enjoy it. My reviews are simply based on what I like and "I know What I Like" and this book, I "liked!" :)
Interesting story with a bit of a different twist on vampires.
This book did touch on some darker more taboo subject matter but I feel like it did so in a way that left me with no trouble reading it. In fact I had a hard time putting the book down!
The author gave just enough information to reel me in but there is still so much more I want to know. And with that doozy of a cliffhanger for an ending I would absolutely love to read the next book in the series because it has definitely peaked my curiosity.
Because of it's darker nature I can say this book won't be for everybody but in my opinion The Man of my Dreams is recommended.
