Darksider (Reveler #3) by Erin Kellison
SHE HAS ALWAYS BEEN HIS DREAM…
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.
The story is short and suspenseful. Erin Kellison is able to jam a lot of story into less than 100 pages. Strong characters, mysterious, yet formidable bad guy, wonderful love story. After 7 years apart Harlen and Sera finally get back together, and once they are back together things move quickly. The series is picking up pace and the bad guy, Lambert, is getting creepier and creepier; I mean, he is a nightmare, so he better be a bit creepy, and he is. 🙂 I look forward to the next installment, Night’s Deep Hush.
