Chef Serafina Rochan believes her recurring nightmares of pursuit are a symptom of her anxiety about opening her second restaurant. But when the stalker appears in the waking world, she swallows her pride and calls the one man she trusts to go into her dreams, even if it means risking her heart.
When Marshal Harlen Fawkes receives Sera’s call, nothing else matters. Time has not eroded the power of his feelings for her. After years apart, they go Darkside together and cannot resist the longing and desire their connection evokes. The past and present collide, and Sera abandons all reservations to embrace Harlen again, if even for one night.
In order to protect her, Harlen aligns himself with disavowed friends, and in so doing is drawn deeper into the secrets and perils of the dreamwaters. As the tide of darkness rises, Harlen faces his demons…but not without Sera, who fights just as fiercely for the dream of a life together.
When Harlan was younger, he had been intimately involved with Sera but as so often happens life got in the way. Now they are both pursuing lives and careers of their own. Harlan works for Chimera as a Marshall protecting those who inhabit the dreamscape and worries not everything happening is safe for those using the new technology. Whilst trying to find out more, he gets a call from the only woman who has truly touched him, but the Sera he remembers is all grown up now and it looks like she needs his own unique brand of help.
Sera has been having strange dreams of a strange man stalking her. What started out as occasional is slowly becoming more frequent and then one day the worst possible thing happens. Sera is at work at her restaurant when she looks out the window and sees her creepy stalker watching. Is he real? Are her dreams invading her reality? She calls the one person she knows she can trust to help, Harlan, but how will they track down the mystery man? Harlan will do all he can for Sera but not everyone involved with Chimera has Sera's best interests at heart! There's danger and corruption and it's infiltrated their dreams!
I'm really enjoying this series and my only complaint is the length! These books are quite short but thankfully Ms Kellison knows how to pack a lot of story into just a few short chapters. These books do follow on from each other so please read in order, but each one seems to have a different couple take centre stage. This gives the reader both a romance and a pretty twisty plot to follow which only adds to all the fun.
This book was entertaining and I confess, I've always had a soft spot for the lovely Marshal but it's the world building that truly elevates this series from good to awesome! A teeny weeny bit of a cliffhanger at the end so I can't wait to read what comes next and I thoroughly recommend this series!
