Raith has never been in love. In fact, he’s spent his entire existence as the terror in mortal nightmares. When he enters Emilee’s dream, he discovers that not only do his powers not work on her, but she can see him as well. Being Fae, he isn’t allowed to show himself to a human, but there is something different about Emilee. Will he be willing to risk it all?
For centuries, Raith has snuck into the dreams of humans to cause mischief and mayhem. Though he used to thrive on being a troublemaker, he’s since become bored with his immortal life as a Fae. When he wanders into Emilee’s dream, he soon realizes he can’t control her dream and twist it in any way he wishes. She’s different, and he doesn’t know why. Emilee can also see him, which has never happened to him before. As they interact and get to know one another in the dream, Raith soon realizes what he needs to be happy and complete, but a Fae and a human cannot have a future together. Or so he believes.
I really enjoyed this story. The H/h are strong characters, and they have an instant connection. Raith was definitely mischievous, but he matured as he fell in love with Emilee. She was exactly what he needed. Emilee, as well, needed an escape from her own sad life, and she literally met the man of her dreams.
The story is told only in Raith’s POV and in first person, so the reader really gets to know and understand what makes him tick. The pacing was a little slow and repetitive at times, and there were some typos, but nothing major. The ending is abrupt with unanswered questions, but there is a satisfying HEA.
Anyway, this is a very sweet, heartwarming, and mostly clean (no sex) novella, and I’d like to read more from Ms. Solomon.
