Publisher's Summary

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.

    Story
    "Phil does it again!"
    Would you listen to Dream Man again? Why?

    Maybe. The story was ok, though I've got other books i like more.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    The story was a bit predictable. I would have made it a bit less obvious.


    What about Phil Gigante’s performance did you like?

    Phil's work is always good; his voice portrays emotion well, and each character gets well defined.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Sadly, no. There were alot of points were I think other people would have though.

    "for a audio chick flick... it works."

    for a audio chick flick... it works. sometimes they bore me and this one kept me engaged and if you like cop/paranormal romance topics even vaguely it shouldn't disappoint.

    "Amazing Story and Phil Gigante is a Great Narrater"
    If you could sum up Dream Man in three words, what would they be?

    A Horrifying, Romantic, Masterpiece.


    What other book might you compare Dream Man to and why?

    Well I can't think of a title to compare Dream man to, but there are two authors that immediatley come to mind. Carla Neggers, and Sharon Sala/Dinah McCall both put you in the same spine tingling, pulse racing state of suspense as this Linda Howard book.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    My favorite scene is actuall in the very begining, when Marlie and Dane meet for the first time and face off in the chief's office. They were up in each others faces fighting and it turns out that the entire time they were fighting, he was severly turned on...this whole scene made me smile.

    I love listening and usually get in at least three hours a day. I like fiction, biographies and medical non-fiction.

    Story
    "Passable suspense, poor narration, awful romance"

    I like police procedurals and I enjoy some romances. The villain in this book was interesting, the crimes grisly but pleasingly scary. The cop "hero" was a creepy lout who sees the heroine, believes she's a liar and yet has uncontrollable erections that he makes no effort to hide from anyone, including the heroine, even after he learns that she suffered a horrific rape. She repeatedly asks him to leave her alone, but he stalks her and enjoys displaying his aroused manhood. The sex scenes, especially the first, were both cringeworthy and laughable. After the hero and heroine have been closely involved, both romantically and trying to catch the killer, he betrays her in a particularly awful way, making a decision "for the good of the case" that humiliates her, causes her financial harm and puts her life in danger. The narrator has an annoying voice for the heroine (who lost all claims on my respect by putting up with the hero-cop's loutish behavior.) Despite several mentions in the book of the hero's Southern accent, and the fact that the book takes place in Florida, the narrator never uses an accent. Instead the hero speaks in an unlikely low growl. The finale, when the killer is finally found, is also a disappointment. The author successfully builds terror and suspense, yet the dramatic confrontation is over in a minute or two, with only a few words spoken by the antagonists. Not worth the time or money (and I got it on sale.)

    "so sappy"

    I'd never heard a Linda Howard book before so I wasn't expecting the insipid "romance" that droned on and on...never again

    "Oh My! Loved it!"

    Phil's voice led me in and drowned me in sensual overload and Linda's wonderfully woven tale, filled with drama, suspense and searing passion and 'edge of your seat action' kept me there! Her stories are akin to riding a roller coaster! Unbearably tempting, wickedly entertaining, thrilling and frightening, yet satisfying and memorable!
    Loved the characters and their development, loved the fast pace and the tension as it built, the dramatic climax and the fabulous twist at the end! Fabulous!

    "Gigante Rocks!"

    Fascinating story! One of the best Linda Howard books I've listened to. And I absolutely love narrator Phil Gigante! I just added a bunch of audiobooks he narrated to my wish list!

    "should have listened to the first reviewer"

    This book is proof positive that a great narrator can't save a terrible story. This is a cross between a Harlequin Romance and a Mickey Spillane novel. Although I must admit Mr. Spillane writes better than this.

    "Loved it!"

    I just love Phil Gigante's voice! He brings so much to the characters in this book, including the females! I try to listen to everthing he narrates.

    "Hard to ruin a Linda Howard"

    This book would have received a 5 if it hadn't been for the narrator. Personally, I'm not sure a male is the best choice for narrating romances. They are almost always derived from the female perspective and should be read by a female. He would have been better if he had just read the book rather than trying to "be" a female voice.
