The Man of Your Dreams

I'm super excited to share PLEASURES OF THE NIGHT with you! I finished copy edits on the manuscript this week, but the cover that was originally created for it has been scrapped and a new one is in the works! I can't wait to see it! In the meantime, here's a bit about Aidan and Lyssa's story:

ISBN: 0-06-123098-7
ISBN-13: 9780061230981
Trade Paperback

Aidan Cross is a Dream Guardian. In the Twilight between sleep and wakefulness, a battle rages between Guardians and Nightmares, with the victor reaping the benefits of the energy created in slumber. Guardians recharge with various skills, Nightmares drain by thriving on distress. Keeping the portal locked between reality and dreams is a calling that rules Aidan's life, until he's assigned to protect Lyssa Bates. Unlike the other women whose dreams he's calmed with deeply erotic seduction, Lyssa recognizes him and his purpose. She welcomes him to her bed as he is, without the disguise of her fantasies, and offers him the first true solace he's known in a lifetime of fighting. Her ability is a gift. And a curse.

Because of her rare cognizance, she is said to be The Key they have all been searching for. The Key serves a terrible purpose--to open the Gateway and allow Nightmares in unlimited numbers to travel through the Twilight. From there, they have access to the mortal plane through the individuals whose dreams they control.

Now Aidan must leave the Twilight to protect Lyssa from both his own people and the enemies who need her to open the door to them. Stripped of the endless possibilities of dreams, they will have only their love with which to conquer her destiny.

Sexy, alpha, has a sense of humor, passionate, compassionate, and intelligent.

Sylvia Day said...

Alpha. Yum! :)

Vivi Anna said...

Hmm, let me see...tall, dark hair with a slight wave that just tickles the tips of his ears, dark blue eyes, smoldering gaze, full lips, sexy smile, chiseled facial features, broad shoulders, chiseled abs, large strong hands, rock hard butt, and a voice that could melt steel...

I knew a guy very close to this once...mmmmm, Dave, where art thou?

ellie said...

Kind, thoughtful, sincere and intelligent with a sense of humor and a great handyman.

alissa said...

A good provider, generous, kind and soft natured with intelligence and charismatic.

Little Lamb Lost said...

Sexy, smart, have great sense of humor, kindness and integrity...and still be something of a bad boy to be tamed (mildly, but never leashed). No uber alpha guys and prefer good body without overly developed muscles from a gym.

pearl said...

Strong, intelligent, deep and a warm, wonderful person.

joelle said...

easy going, charming, intelligent and sweet. Honest and sincere as well as hard working.

Jennifer Y. said...

I need a guy with a great sense of humor who is loyal. He also needs some intelligence and compassion.

Bonnie Ferguson said...

Smart, funny, passionate, sexy, kind, loving, and honorable with an edge }:)

Bonnie Ferguson said...

Oh and the blurb for Pleasures Of The Night sounds awesome :)

Meljprincess said...

A great guy would be intelligent, have a good sense of humor, and be patient. He'd also love cats and reading.

bamabelle said...

Oh, you guys picks sound good! I'll take one of each lol! Really, mine would have many of the same characteristics mentioned: alpha, sexy, smart, funny, a mischievious smile (I love that), expressive eyes.... I'll stop because I'll go on all day if I don't. :)

Maureen said...

A sense of humor, smart and sympathetic

Estella said...

Smart, sexy, loyal, compassionate, and have a great sense of humor.

Vivi Anna said...

Wow, ladies, you all make me think I'm all superficial with just picking out physical traits for my dream guy.... ;-)

I didn't even cross my mind to give him a personality...LOL

Kathy said...

A guy who is both smart and has a deep voice is my idea of sexy.:-)

Lis said...

smart, sexy, good arms, nice eyes, sense of humor, love his family

Minna said...

Sexy nerd with a great sense of humor, kindness and integrity.

GingersJag said...

Alpha and confident...but lets me be independent too! Has to be a good provider, with sexy long hair...and MUST take care of all my needs....

Tam said...

A good provider, sexy, smart, a sense of humor, funny, passionate, compassionate, intelligent, loving, loyal, honest.

sharon said...

Very good person, high morals and values. Honest, intelligent, and willing to be the best provider and companion around. Must be able to perform household tasks which involve heavy work. The neatest person around.

Jennifer Y. said...

LOL Vivi!!!

Pam P. said...

I want my own Dream Guardian! lol

Sexy and dark hair on the longish side, blue or green eyes, with a mysterious air about him, but who knows how to give you his attention and please, intelligent, dry sarcastic wit.

Cathy said...

sexy, gentle, sense of humor and if I am dreamin' then lets make him dark haired with a great beta personality.

LadyVampire2u said...

I close my eyes and before me stands my dream man. Dark and dangerous, he inspires powerful emotions and intense reactions. His eyes pierce right into your soul yet are gray and mysterious. His hair is black, wavy, thick and silky falling past the shoulders. A body honed to perfection with rippling muscles, standing a good 6 feet or more in height. Sensual lips begging to be kissed with chisled features. He is an alpha in his own right and yet has his weaknesses. He is smart, sensitive, honorable, witty, cunning, a romantic at heart and relentless in any quest. He has a sense of humor and yet knows when to be serious. And then he speaks and his voice vibrates deeply to resonate with a cord inside you that melts your defenses.

Sylvia Day said...

Did anyone say "good in bed"? Or is that a given? *g*

Bonnie,

Thank you! I'm really excited about this series. :)

Pam,

I want one, too! *g*

Hugs!

Lisa Pulliam said...

Funny. Independent. Not smothering or needy. Comfortable to be around. Likes junk in the trunk ;-) Supportive of me following my dreams. And most importantly, brown hair and brown eyes.

Pamk said...

sexy, smart, funny, loving, and intelligent.

KimW said...

Sexy, a little mysterious, great bod, long hair, a raspy voice, intelligent, honest and completely in love with me.

Jennifer Y. said...

Sylvia said: Did anyone say "good in bed"? Or is that a given? *g*

I think it is a given LOL!

Little Lamb Lost said...

Did anyone say "good in bed"? Or is that a given? *g*

That is definitely a given!

Eyes of the purest blue but turn smoldering like a stormy sky when gripped by primal desires. His sensual lips, soft and full, give the most alluring mischievious smile and absolutely divine to feel on upon your lips. He stands just over 6 feet with a strong, but not overly done, chiseled body that is heavenly to run your hands over. Purely Alpha, used to getting what he wants, but likes a challenge as well, if he has deemed it worthy. His heart is fiercely guarded but can be penetrated with the right arsenal. Hair so black that only the sky at deepest midnight could compete in comparison. The Highland breeze blowing off the loch ruffles his already dishevelled hair making him appear even more delectable. His Scottish brogue rolls off his lips, calling out to you, and something inside you answers back. Family is important to him, and he longs for one of his own. Well educated and intelligent, he enjoys sitting, talking for hours and debating on a variety of different topics. Passionate in all he does, truth and honor are large aspects of his life.

I think I just wrote a story here, maybe I've thought on this a little too often. *grins and blushes*
