She’s a small town cop. He’s an inmate undercover. They meet in a dream.


Jennah Best left the adrenaline packed life of being a cop on the edge for a more peaceful place. She escaped a marriage that almost destroyed her and now lives her life working for a small police station in the town of Ridge. At her age, she’s accepted that it’s too late and too much work to start all over again, until she meets a man in a dream...

While young, Dominic Palmer has always proven he can get the job done.  Or at least, that was the case before he accepted a job and agreed to go undercover as an inmate. When months go by and there’s no word from his outside contact he wonders if he’s been left on the inside for good. He’s fighting to stay alive and keep his sanity, but finds himself completely distracted by a mysterious woman he met in a dream...


She wakes up in a dark hole, alone. He’ll stop at nothing to find her.

Jennah has found happiness. She wasn’t looking for it but isn’t about to give it up now that she has it. Everything she craved for years was now right in front of her--a man that makes her feel cherished, a peaceful life, and a job she enjoys. It all changes when she wakes up in a dark hole, alone, unarmed and unable to connect with the one man she’s grown to need.

Dominic realizes he is one of those men that wants the whole package of marriage and a family, and he’s found the woman to have that with. He’s going stir crazy having to stay hidden until the leader of a criminal organization is caught, but he’s more than willing to stay right here with her.

All of his plans evaporate when a vindictive criminal takes her from him as a hostage. He won’t rest until she’s in his arms again. 

Brody believes he’s a normal man. Tess has felt like a freak most of her life- except when she’s around one man.


Feeling less then worthy as a normal man surrounded by a team with special skills, Brody has to wonder why he’s a part of it. If it weren’t for one team mate being there, he’d transfer back to normalcy.

Tess has always felt like a freak, even surrounded by others that are different she still feels like an outsider. Only one of her team mates make her feel like an everyday person. 

My review:

This is a great collection of stories that all begin with a dream.  And what a dream it was.  Its in their dreams that Jennah and Dominic meet.  For Dom this is something he has experienced before but for Jennah this is completely new.  When she realizes that this is not a dream and that he is real she will do whatever it takes to help him in his mission.

Which leads perfectly into the next story.  What happens when Dom's past case continue to be a threat.  In From A Dream this idea is a main cause of the current situation.  But we also get to really meet some great new characters - Tess and Brody.  While Dom has almost always worked solo Brody has always been there as a friend and to back him up.  Tess is new to the guys and has her own unique talent that comes into play in a very important way to finally close the case for good.

And a few months later we get After the Dream.  Theres a new task force around and everyone is unique in their own way.  But Brody doesnt understand why he is part of this team since he believes he is normal.  And Tess is fighting to understand her talents better hoping that she will eventually feel normal.  The two of them have had explosive chemistry since the beginning.  And we get to see how they come to terms with themselves and each other while working with their new team to stop the threat.

This collection is all connected but each story is unique and has its own ending.  None of them are really long so its really 3 interconnected novellas.  I really enjoyed them and it was great since I always want to know what happens next.  And with short stories you dont always get the sense of continuation with the characters you meet.  Also while the stories are short, you get plenty of detail and background on the characters that you really can form a connection that you want to see what happens to them and hope that it all turns out for the best.
