Romance Paranormal | Romance Suspense

Psychic dream counselor Gwen Frazier is forced to return to Wilby, Oregon, when her mentor Evelyn Ballinger sends her a cryptic e-mail about something alarming she's discovered. However, when Gwen arrives at Evelyn's home, she finds her dead. Gwen knows it's not from natural causes, as it appears. Evelyn has been murdered with a paranormal weapon, and all of Gwen's horrific memories from two years ago come crashing back, when a serial killer murdered two members of a psychic research group run by Evelyn. Gwen was his next target, but their confrontation ended in the murderer committing suicide. Gwen is convinced Evelyn's death is related to the events of the past, but how?

Knowing she can't handle the situation in Wilby on her own, Gwen contacts her best friend Abby and Abby's fiancé Sam Coppersmith (from COPPER BEACH, 2012) for help. They send Sam's brother Judson, a talented psychic investigator who can detect the aftermath of violent crimes and is able to sense a killer's emotions. Judson is recovering from a recent traumatic experience and dealing with some very disturbing dreams. He's not sure how to handle being around Gwen, an aura and dream reader, especially since he's so strongly attracted to her. The intense sexual attraction is shared by Gwen, which adds another dimension to their already complicated investigation. As more deaths occur and it becomes obvious Gwen's life is again at risk, their search takes even more unexpected twists and turns. Time is running out to solve the mystery of what links the past to the present and catch the killer determined to finish what was started years ago.

DREAM EYES is the second novel in Jayne Ann Krentz's paranormal Dark Legacy series (after COPPER BEACH). The exciting, suspenseful plot is fast-paced with well-executed psychic elements and authentic characterization throughout. Of course, the sexual relationship is an integral part of any good romantic suspense, and this one will not disappoint Krentz's legion of fans. Another masterful job of storytelling by one of the best in the industry!

SUMMARY

The death of her friend and mentor, Evelyn Ballinger, brings psychic counselor Gwen Frazier back to the small town of Wilby, Oregon, and brings back memories she would rather forget. Two years earlier, a killer stalked the members of one of Ballinger's research studies including Gwen. And though she survived while two others didn't, Gwen knows that Ballinger's death is related.

Sent by a friend to help Gwen, psychic investigator Judson Coppersmith arrives in Wilby barely in control of his own talent and his own life, haunted by urgent dreams. His attraction to Gwen is primal, but there are secrets he must keep to protect himself from surrendering to her completely, even as their investigation draws them into dreamscapes, into decades of deception, and into the paranormal fires of a desire too strong to resist. . .
