New review for Dream Lord at The Romance Studio

Dream Lord: The Tome of Unnatural Desire
Skylar Sinclair
Paranormal erotic romance
Available from Mardi Gras Publishing
ISBN: 1-934329-42-8 March 2007

Lana Thomas, a twenty-something plump bartender, is about to commence her two-week vacation, with nowhere to go and no one to see. Unaccountably drawn one evening to a run-down, nearly defunct, used bookseller, she paces to the back of the shop and pulls out only one book: a leather-bound book with no illustration, title, or author. The book gives her a rush of static electricity when she reaches for it.

That night, she opens it to read a story called The Tome of Unnatural Desire, about a mythical god on Mount Olympus whose carnal sensuality and trickster nature causes him trouble.
The book seems to have the pages glued together, but as she finishes each, Lana finds one more page will open, and so forth, until she falls asleep. Sleep doesn't bring her dreams, but instead an entirely new level of consciousness and sensuality as she encounters the Dream Lord, Caleb, an oversized and oversexed immortal who finds his perfect dream mate in Lana, and determines to prove so to her.

Skylar Sinclair's fertile imagination peoples this story with imaginatively drawn characters and a wealth of explicit sensuality. Not for the faint-hearted, the sizzling erotica will stimulate braver readers. Dream Lord: Tome of Unnatural Desires promises to be only the first in a series exploring disparate individuals who encounter the book, only to discover their dreams unfolding in entirely new dimensions.

Overall rating: 4 hearts
