Welcome to my stop on the Paranormal Love Wednesdays blog hop! My Dream Series books feature one paranormal twist – my heroine, Sara, can step into other people’s dreams.
In this excerpt from book two of the series, DREAM DOCTOR, Sara is visiting the dream of her next-door neighbor…a young woman who just happens to be dreaming about Sara’s husband…
Sara is in her living room, but she knows immediately that this isn’t her dream. She sees Brian sitting on the small loveseat, watching a baseball game on their tiny TV but she can tell that it isn’t his dream either. She’s confused – whose dream is it?
The doorknob turns, the door opens, and the answer is revealed: Barbara from next door. Barbara the tall and attractive law student, who’s currently wearing a bathrobe and – Sara is absolutely certain of this – nothing underneath it.
“Your wife’s not here,” Barbara coos as she approaches Brian. He says nothing, shows no reaction at all. “You don’t want to do anything that would hurt her. I admire that, you know. That’s how a real man ought to act,” she says, stepping between him and the TV.
Sara smiles as Brian continues to not react to her, except for tilting his head to see past her to the TV. She does not smile when Barbara sighs, takes Brian’s head in her hands and forces him to look at her. “You are a good man. But you’re only human,” she says, and then, letting go of him, she unties her robe and lets it fall to the floor…
“Get out of my room, you whore!” I hear myself shouting at someone, but who? There’s nobody here. Brian’s in the shower, I can hear the water going. And why would I call him a whore? That makes no sense.
Not Brian. I was dreaming. I saw – God, I saw Barbara! The woman who lives next door to us. The married woman who lives next door to us. I saw her dream. And she was dreaming about seducing Brian. “Whore” is far too good a word for her.
