House painter Thea Marlow hasn’t been sleeping very well. Her nights are plagued by dreams, the setting by the water and the mysterious man who appears in them always the same. But the outcome of the dream changes nightly: sometimes the man loves her...and sometimes he kills her.

Imagine her surprise when a knock at the door reveals the man from her dreams...who happens to have just rented the house next door.

So will he love her—or will he kill her?

I really enjoyed this story and although it was short it was well done. Gives a different meaning to the term soul mate.

Thea Marlow things that she is losing it. Overwhelmed by dreams in which her lover, whose face she has never fully seen, is either loving her or killing her. The dreams are causing her waking life to suffer, so she travels to her family’s lake house to see if she can relax. What she did not expect was to meet her neighbor, Richard Chase, and find out that he and her dream man are the same person. Is she losing her mind, or is fate giving her another chance for a love that will last forever? LAKE OF DREAMS was a very cute story. Nice and quick, and the progression of the story was good. I will admit, I had trouble with Thea in the beginning. But, I grew to like her. I think that her character and Richard’s are great together. I would recommend this to anyone that wants a quick, but satisfying read. I received this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

This is a reissue of a book from several years ago and it definitely should have been updated along with the change of title. This read like a book of the 90's. **Received a copy of this book from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review**

***ARC Provided by the Publisher and NetGalley*** I am not sure if it really qualifies as an ARC, if it is a reissue, but oh this version is not technically out, I am going with it. Just in case. Linda Howard is fun. Her writing is strong, her characters are compelling, and you quickly find yourself drawn in to their story, into wanting to know what happens to them. This is a hard book to review, as saying too much gives too much is well worth the read, it stays with you after you finish, and it is the kind of book that makes you want to find others who have read it, so you can talk to them about it.

Night after night Thea Marlow has been plagued by dreams of a mysterious man with alluring aquamarine eyes who she feels some connection too. Sometimes in the dreams he confesses his love for her, and other times he is on a mission to take her life. The vivid dreams are beginning to take their toll on her, and causing her to become exhausted and in need of a little reprieve, so she decides to a make a trip to her families remote lake house for a little vacation, hoping maybe a new location will help dissipate the haunting dreams. But the minute she meets her neighbor the dreams she hoped were going to be buried are brought to life. The man standing before her, is the same man who has been haunting her at night for weeks... The minute I saw this read was available I had to request it, I have thoroughly reading books by this author in the past, always depending on them to provide me with a spine tingling literary escape, and I am happy to report this one definitely lived up to my expectations!! It was a suspenseful and sexy read that kept me on my toes the whole way through! Linda Howard is a master at her craft, always writing suspenseful romance stories, that grab readers attention and keep them guessing the right up until the very end!! Highly recommend!!

Uniquely Imaginative This story grabbed me from the beginning with lush detail and description. The more I read, it was clear I had come across this story before, and just like before, I could not put it down. Being a fan of Ms.Howard’s writing style I knew this one was on my keeper shelf. Sure enough, it was previously published along with two of her other novellas in Strangers Of The Night. Thea Martin knows the man she’s loved forever, but only in her frightening dreams. Her dreams lead her to the shores of her family’s cabin where she meets Richard Chance for the first time. Instantly, Thea realizes that they share a history together through time, one that is filled with passion, warmth, and love but also tragedy. Will Thea finally place her trust in the loving arms of her soulmate? And will they finally have the life together they deserve? Absolutely, a favorite novella penned by Ms. Howard, and glad to see that it is offered as a digital release. She is a master storyteller who paints a vivid picture with superb imagination.
