Publisher's Summary

Set in ninth-century England and Norway, Dream of Me tells the story of Wolf Hakonson, a fierce Norse chief who falls in love when he kidnaps the sister of his rival, Hawk, a prominent Saxon lord. Wolf marries the lovely Cymbra but their wedded bliss is short-lived. First the women of the settlement refuse to accept their Saxon mistress who turns out to have emphatic abilities, and then Wolf must face the wrath of his brother-in-law. Inevitably, true love triumphs, but the peace brought about by their union is precarious.

Great escape

This romance was pure escapist fun. The characters were reasonably well developed and the story was not as predictable as most trashy romances are. The relationship between the two leads was believable and touching. The narrator carried me along all the way as if she were telling me a grown-up bedtime story. I loved curling up with this during a winter storm.

Predictable, clich?d & sickly sweet
I was looking forward to an interesting historical novel with a bit of romance, but this is basically a very soppy romance (read sex) novel with just the tiniest bit of history as a backdrop.

I don't mind romance but this was so predictable. I should have known when I read that the names of the main characters were Wolf, Dragon and Hawk. Every description of bodies or sex was so clich?d. I very quickly had enough of marbled thighes and granite shoulders - please be a bit more imaginative. The sex scenes, of which there are many, are so contrived and unbelievable that they deserve to be put in a new genre beyond fantasty.

It is a shame that the bones of a such a good story could be clothed in such poor writing.
