DREAM BOUND by Kate Douglas
In this erotic romance story, extreme, hot, sexual fantasizing is used as an energy source to attempt to save an alien race of people, the Nyrians, from a lifetime of imprisonment and at the same time save Earth from being stripped of all its resources and left as a dead rock floating in the universe.
In the first story in this series (Dream Catcher in the NightShift anthology) , Mac Dugan met Zianne, a time-traveling alien from a spaceship in orbit near Earth 20 years in the future, and fell in love with her.
Together they formulated a plan to save her people, the Nyrians from slavery and at the same time, save the Earth from alien invasion and certain death. The Gar are a cruel race of aliens, keeping the Nyrians as prisoners to power their star cruiser. When they are near a planet with abundant natural resources, the Gar attack the planet, strip the resources and store them in the ship for their own uses, leaving the planet dead.
Mac, a computer engineer has spent the last 20 years building a huge satellite array capable of sending energy as well as identifying energy pulses coming from outer space. Now Mac is taking his team of 6 people to the array to begin trying to communicate with the Nyrians. The team all have extrasensory perceptions/abilities and the capability of mental telepathy, as well as admitting to extreme sexual fantasies and open sexual lifestyles.
This story is rich with sexual fantasies using mind games the 6 humans play with each other, the actual physical sexual interactions between the humans, and also with the Nyrians, when they are able to come to Earth in human form. All this sexual energy being created is intended to be used to rescue the Nyrians and their soulstones from the alien ship.
Add in basic human nature which fears the unknown, a government unwilling to believe such outlandish ideas such as an alien ship hiding behind the moon about to attack the Earth, and the Media, who would love a story to end all stories, and this novel of the first known aliens coming to Earth comes to life.
This was a very enjoyable read, with some suspense within the story, and of course, lots of sexual tension. The characters were believable, even the aliens came to life on the pages of this book. Lots and lots of hot, steamy sex with emotional connections coming together, and this book kept me sucked in until the very end. This is Part 2 of a series, and the conclusion was perfectly timed to lead into the last book, which will be out later in the year.

WOW!!! This book grabs you and pulls you right in, and it has been a while since I have read a book like that. It had everything: science fiction, romance, hot sex, intrigue... all of it. This is a fantastic new series. Book 1 started in the NightShift Anthology - Dream Catcher- and now book 2 - Dream Bound - picks right up where the story ended. Awesome, awesome book! Highly recommend it.

Another steamy sexy series that is a keeper!
A man who knows his future is waiting for him fights hard and works harder to save the woman he loves and her people. Twenty years ago Mac Dugan found the love of his life and lost her. But he is a man that has a second chance. His love is from the future, his present to be exact. He spoke to her over time and space and she taught him what he needs to know to save her people. The time is now! Mac has brought together his Dream Team; three men and three women that have a little extra and a lot of sexuality. With his equipment and their imaginations they are setting out to save Mac’s love Zianne and her people, the Nyrians. Their connection as a group is instant, strong and amazing. They are more than Mac ever expected and success is in his grasp. I found the concept behind this story really quite remarkable. Ms. Douglas has taken the notion of dreams and fantasy to a whole new level. What if you were really able to project your fantasies into reality and in the same time save a whole race? Dream Bound is wonderfully refreshing and beyond sexy. Ms. Douglas can write love, sex and passion like nobody’s business and she will always be a must read for me and she didn’t disappoint here. While the story revolves around the rescuing of Zianne and her people there are actually nine characters. I was drawn to each and every one of them. While some are more front-and-center than others, I could feel that by the time this tale is told they will all be well loved friends. Each person is unique and the way they are written makes them all special yet familiar. Dream Bound is marketed as an erotic romance novel. However, there really isn’t a true “couple”. The book does have love and discovery between its pages though. There also isn’t a happy ever after ending, but a happily for now. It is apparent that it is meant to be a series. Even with the ending left open, Ms. Douglas doesn’t leave us with a cliff hanger. You are left satisfied and ready for the next in the series. I personally can’t wait for November, when Dream Unchained is scheduled to be released. I would highly recommend that you read her short story Dream Catcher in the Nightshift anthology before you start this novel. Dream Catcher sets the stage for Dream Bound beautifully and you get a good view into Mac’s reasoning for his lifelong passion. I could have easily read Dream Bound without it, but I’m glad I didn’t. Please don’t let not being able to read the prequel deter you from picking up this novel though. You will not be lost; the experience will be just as fulfilling and enjoyable. Dream Bound is full of sensual fantasies, likeable characters and a plot that is imaginative, vivid and fascinating. Dream Bound is a spellbinding tale of second chances, new love and the power of fantasies. It’s another keeper for my “Kate Douglas” section of my library. Yes, she has a row all for herself. Pick up Dream Bound and find out why!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
