Overview

The best dreams are made of naughty and spice.

Rebecca Williams is about to achieve her goal of graduating from a prestigious university and winning a coveted spot in her mentor’s cutting-edge psychology practice. She just needs one more qualification: sexual experience. She never dreamed it would come at the hands of the man she’s admired and wanted for six years. Dr. Kurt Foster.

Kurt, a brilliant psychologist in the field of sexual therapy, is a scientist to the core. Attraction and lust are nothing more than chemical reactions, in his clinical opinion. Love? It’s just a figment of the imagination born of nature’s directives. He’s on the brink of proving it with a new machine that uncovers latent desires.

In short order, Becca’s forbidden lust for her boss is exposed. As Kurt continues to enlighten her on the darker facets of her sexuality, the student unexpectedly becomes the teacher.

And suddenly Kurt is confronted with the irrefutable proof that love is so much more than a societal construction.

Read an Excerpt

Bear pulled out more cured meat and tossed it to Lynx. "Who's got first watch?"

"Me. You had last watch before we got started this morning, so you need the rest more." Lynx tore off a hunk of meat with his teeth, chewed, and swallowed. "We'll leave at first light. That way we'll make it home well before dark."

Dragon's gaze flitted between them. In the firelight, his eyes were a pale, almost silvery gray. "I heard Carwin Tribe lives inside Char. That true?"

It didn't surprise Bear that Dragon had heard of the ruined city which surrounded Carwin's walls on all sides. By all accounts, Char was the place where the old civilization had made its last stand after the Change. They'd done their best to keep the old ways alive--evil, wicked ways, according to everything Bear had learned growing up--and keep the Mother's punishment at bay. It hadn't done any good in the end. Less than fifty years after the oceans first began to rise and the human race realized the enormity of its sins against the Earth Mother, Char had fallen into the same chaos that had already destroyed the rest of civilization.

All that remained of Char now was a sprawl of crumbling ruins and a large collection of machines and other artifacts which no one fully understood. Dangerous predators prowled Char's streets, which made traveling between Carwin's walled central city and the outlying tribal lands risky. At least it discouraged the nightfeeders and occasional bands of murderous outcasts from approaching Carwin City.

"Carwin's just inside Char," Bear confirmed. "It was a ruin before the tribe settled there and fixed it up."

Dragon's head tilted sideways. He shot a glance at Lynx, who waspoking at the fire, then pinned Bear with a curious look. "So they didn't build it? It was already there?"

This was Bear's favorite story, and he couldn't see any harm in telling it. After all, it wasn't a story of the old world, was it? Tales of Carwin's settlement were allowed. Resting his elbows on his knees, he adopted the tone he half-remembered his mother using when he was a small child, before the tribe's Seer spotted him as Pack and took him from his home.

"When the founders of the Carwin Tribe were traveling through Char looking for a place to settle," he began, "they came to an old road, the kind people used before the Change. On the other side of the road was a huge, wide field, and in the middle of the field was a city inside a wall."

"Carwin." Dragon's eyes were wide, his voice no more than a breath.

Encouraged, Bear nodded. "This city was like nothing they had ever seen. Strange shapes rose up over the walls, like the skeletons of mountains. One shape pointed straight to the sky like a needle. The people were scared, of course, but the walls of the city were tall and thick, and inside were enough buildings to shelter ten times the people they had. And even then, the Carwin Pack was strong enough to defeat any enemy within or without the walls."

Leaning forward, Dragon stared at Bear with a strange fire in his eyes. "What did they find there? They must've found something from the old world. Books, machines, something. What did they find?"

Startled, Bear shook his head. "Buildings. Nightfeeders. Wild dogs, cats, other animals. Those weird metal skeletons, whatever they were. They're still there, actually. They're rusted, parts of them have fallen off, but they're mostly still there. There used to be little carts on them. Some of the carts are still inside ruined buildings at the base of the skeletons."

"And that's it?"

Bear chewed his bottom lip, torn. He'd seen the things the council and the tribe elders called photographs, some of them more than fifteen generations old. The first tribe members had encased them in a tough, transparent, flexible substance to preserve them for all time. The photographs depicted a world beyond imagination. A world where giant metal birds filled the sky and magic boxes could show a person things that were happening so far away it would take weeks to walk there. According to Mother Rose, the Carwin Tribe's founders had discovered the photographs in a pile of books, papers and clothes alongside four huddled corpses inside one of Carwin's many buildings.

The problem was, Bear wasn't supposed to know that. He'd overheard it at a council meeting when he was nine and he, Rabbit and Lynx had snuck into the council room and hidden in the wine cabinet. So he couldn't very well tell Dragon, in spite of the oath he'd taken as a Pack-Brother to be truthful. He doubted that oath applied to situations like this anyway.

"No," he said after a long silence. "They didn't find anything else."

With a sigh, Dragon slumped where he sat. He picked crusted leaves off his knee. "I bet they did. Your Mother and your council just don't say so, because they don't want you to know. But they know something about it."

Shocked, Bear stared into the flames. He didn't dare look at Lynx for fear his expression would give him away. He often wished he could go back in time, just for a day, to glimpse a life that had vanished forever when the Earth Mother took back what was Hers.

He knew better than to express that desire. Lynx had never understood Bear's fascination with tales of the world before the change. A Pack-Brother shouldn't walk around with his head in the clouds, he always said whenever Bear broached the subject. But nothing could stop Bear from dreaming of that lost world sometimes, when the nights were hot and restless.

Glancing at Dragon, Bear saw a faraway look in the man's eyes. A look Bear knew he himself wore when he was daydreaming about the distant past. As if he could feel Bear looking at him, Dragon blinked and met his gaze. Bear smiled. Dragon smiled back, and Bear felt a jolt go through him. He looked away, heart racing. He didn't want to feel this drawn to a man he couldn't have. Especially a man who might be a murderer, or worse.

"I'm gonna get some sleep." Bear stretched out on his back, keeping Dragon's rope looped around his wrist. "Dragon, you might as well get some rest too."

"You want me to take the rope?" Lynx asked, moving to a position where he could see into the darkness outside while still keeping an eye on Dragon.

"No. I'll wake up if he moves." Bear yawned and shut his eyes, trying to ignore Dragon's tantalizing nearness. "Don't forget to wake me up for my watch, Lynx. Just because you can stay up a whole day and night doesn't mean it's a good idea."

Lynx laughed. "Shut up and go to sleep, Bear."

Bear smiled. Just before he drifted off to sleep, he felt the rope move as Dragon shifted. His fingers tightened, making sure Dragon stayed close.

    Not her best. I liked all her books except this one.

    I thought Kurt was a jerk to the 10 power. The dream machine now that was a joke. Second book in this series was much better.

    This was a cute story of a college prof. and a grad.student. She needs money to help her family and has had a crush on her prof. for yrs. The prof. in turn has lusted after the student but of course hasn't acted on it.
    Fast forward six yrs. student is now graduating/looking for work and is signing up for one last experiment w/prof.  
    You don't get a lot of back story on Kurt (the Prof) but I found him likable. You do get a good back story on Becca and what makes her tick. The chemistry works between these two. And the story flows well, even if it's a little far fetched.
     The author also introduces a good secondary character that I would like to read more about.  
    overall an enjoyable read if your not looking for anything too deep or believable.

    As posted on The Smutty Kitty 4 out of 5 Licks When I discover

    As posted on The Smutty Kitty

    4 out of 5 Licks

    When I discovered there was a book by Jayne Rylon that I hadn't read yet I knew I needed to rectify the situation immediately. Dream Machine takes us into the world of Becca's dreams and let me tell you this woman has some sexy dreams about her boss Kurt. Kurt and Becca make such a great couple because they each spend quite a bit of time fighting the growing love between them-one of my favorite things for characters to do is fight the attraction. These two may be fighting the love portion of the attraction but thanks to science they are not fighting the sex portion. lol Thanks to Becca's wicked dream desires they have all kinds of hot kinky sex. I'm quite happy to say we get our HEA for Kurt and Becca although the path at the end got very rocky.

    My favorite part about this book though was Luke. He is one of those secondary characters that just took over for me. When he was in the scene he had my complete attention and sometimes even when he wasn't around I was thinking about him. I'm thrilled to say he recently got his own book, Healing Touch, come back tomorrow for that review. If you love Jayne Rylon, and quite frankly how could you not, then make sure you add this book to your collection. This one is sure to leave you with pleasant dreams.

    Beautiful awakening

    Becca is a young woman extremely dedicated to her studies and the beginning of her career. So much so she supresses her desires. Some feel that for Becca to be an effective psycologist she needs to accept these desires within herself.
    Dr. Kurt Foster, Becca's mentor and boss aids her with this. Under Kurt's guidance, care and love Becca becomes not only a confident woman, but a sexually confident woman.
    Kurt has his own awakening. He doesn't believe love exists, despite his tender care of Becca. With some help and a lot of kicking and screaming on Kurt's part, he comes to the realization that he loves Becca. Kurt not only tells Becca he loves her, but shows her in the most tender way. If you want something unique and hot this story is for you.
