Had she finally met the man she longed for...or was she dreaming?

Marlie Keen was trying to lead a quiet, ordinary life. She thought the knowing -- the clairvoyance that allowed her to witness crimes as they happened -- had been destroyed in the nightmare of her past. Then one night it returned with a vengeance, and she desperately needed to find someone to make it stop.

Detective Dane Hollister of the Orlando police department had never met anyone like Marlie. He had doubts about her clairvoyance, but there was no doubt how much he desired her. Her soft, sweet scent set his blood afire, and he wanted to wrap her in his arms and chase the sadness from her eyes. To Marlie, Dane was all heat and hard muscle, and he made her body come alive as it never had before. But not even she could foresee where their passion would lead: a hungry quest for the elusive, dreamy ecstasies of love...and a dangerous journey into the twisted mind of a madman who would threaten their happiness and their lives....

Added to this romantic thriller is the twist (fairly new when in it was written in 1994) of the paranormal. In this case, the heroine is clairvoyant although the hot detective doesn't believe it at first... Does he become convinced? Read it and seemore
Linda Howard is one of my favorite romantic suspense authors. This is an older one, published in 1998. I read this one as a group read. At first, Dane is a jerk, but once he finally admits Marlie has some kind of psychic "gift", and clears her as a suspect, he really appears to go through a change. He doesn't give Marlie the emotional assurances she would like to hear from him, he is a bit controlling, but under the circumstances that seems to be more protectiveness. But, as I read on, I began to suspect Dane had an ulterior motive. I thought he might be using Marlie to solve his murder case. But, I wasn't prepared for the emotional curve ball the author tossed out at us. It came so close to the end of the book that I never really recovered from the shock of it. Marlie kicks butt all the way, especially at the end. The mystery is taut and suspenseful, which is what redeems this book for me. The romance part left me unsatisfied, even though Dane is contrite and did really love Marlie, or so he claimed. I don't know if I would have treated someone I loved like he treated Marlie, but we had to have our HEA. I still felt like I had been punched in the stomach when I finished the book though. Over all not one of my favorite Linda Howard books. I gave it a three star rating mainly for the good suspense.more
A- Classic Linda Howard, excellently narrated by Phil Gigante. Dane Hollister (what a cool name) is a cop investigating (what will become) a series of murders and Marlie Keen is a psychic who sees through the eyes of the killer when he's doing the deed. Great book, better on audio. (Although, I think Lisa Marie Rice may have got the idea for her heroes - and I mean this in the nicest possible way - from this one - big alpha male, just about stalkerish behaviour with a constant hard-on for the heroine - sound familiar?)more
Full of Romance and a terrific Suspense story! I thought that "Dream Man" was an exciting story that combined both romance and suspense. I have read several of Linda Howard's books and I have enjoyed all of them, however in this book I thought there was a thick dose of lengthy descriptions of rape and murders. The more I read the more I was thoroughly caught up in Marlie and Dane's story! These characters had a chemistry that kept me from putting the book down because Ms. Howard captured their love story, and yet she wove it into a tension-filled adventure. I think that this book is one of Linda Howard's best. I would gladly recommend it to all my friends.more
great contemporary romance full of intrigue; Howard weaves beautifully compelling romance and and wonderfully developed characters and chemistrymore
Marlie Keen used to be a psychic, but traumatic events several years in the past stripped her of her powers. Learning to adjust to "real" life like normal people was a struggle, but she did it. Now, just as she's beginning to feel comfortable in her own skin again, her power has locked in on the mind of a serial killer.Dane Hollister is a detective with the Orlando PD. He's a tough, no-nonsense, plain dealer with a soft spot for women of all ages, and he doesn't believe in psychics any more than he believes in Santa Claus. When a rapist slasher-murder starts targeting Orlando's ladies, he and his partner are at a loss until a waif-like, self-proclaimed "psychic" comes forward. Dane may have difficulty dis-believing in Marlie, but neither her "powers" nor the fact that he also finds her about the most attractive woman he's ever met will stop him from using her to catch a killer.Suspenseful and riveting. Places still give me chills every time I read it. Marlie is a lot stronger that she initially comes across, and Dane is a more likable bully than some of Howard's alpha males.more
Over-all a good read. A steamy romance although dark, with the psychic look into a murderers mind. I would read it again.more
