For the first time in hardcover, here is #1 New York Times bestselling author Karen Marie Moning’s novella Into the Dreaming, a tale of Highland fantasy, star-crossed lovers, and the timeless manipulation of the ancient, immortal Unseelie king. This is Moning at her romantic, funniest finest.
 
Free him from his ice-borne hell . . .
 
Stolen from his beloved home in the Highlands of Scotland, imprisoned in the Unseelie king’s dark, frosty kingdom, Aedan MacKinnon endured centuries of torture before becoming the icy, emotionless Vengeance, the dark king’s dispatcher of death and destruction in the mortal realm.
 
And in his century you both may dwell . . .
 
Aspiring romance novelist Jane Sillee has always believed that she was born in the wrong century, but she’s managed to make a decent enough life for herself—if only she could stop having those recurring dreams about a man too perfect to exist.
 
In the Dreaming you have loved him . . .
 
Haunted every night of her life by a devastatingly sexy Highlander who comes to her while she sleeps, Jane tries to write him out of her head and heart. As a child he protected her, as a woman he loves her.
 
Now in the Waking you must save him . . .
 
When an ancient tapestry bearing the likeness of her beloved Highlander arrives on her doorstep, Jane is whisked back in time to fifteenth-century Scotland, to the castle of Dun Haakon on the isle of Skye, where she is given one chance to save her dream lover . . . or lose him forever to the Unseelie king.
 
Caught in a deadly game between the light and dark courts of the Fae, Jane must find a way through the ice to the heart of her Highander. But will the love of one mortal woman be enough to defeat such ancient and ruthless immortal enemies?

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
In 2002, Moning published this novella as part of a mass-market collection that has since gone out of print. Now Moning's Fever and Highlander series have hit a rolling boil, and the novella is being published as a stand-alone that bridges the two series. Expect big demand.
Kirkus Reviews
A long-out-of-print novella by Moning (The Immortal Highlander, 2004, etc.) that's padded with previously unpublished bits and pieces of her writing. Aedan MacKinnon is, literally, the man of writer Jane Sillee's dreams, and she's determined to save him from an evil Unseelie king who's tricked him into five hundred years of servitude. The grandson of a great Scottish ruler, Aedan has been trapped in an icy kingdom and has no memory of his past. Now called Vengeance, the king has transformed him into an agent of death and destruction. A Faery queen, determined to thwart the evil king, sends Jane a tapestry with Aedan's name and likeness on it and uses her magic to transport the sleeping author to 15th-century Scotland. When Jane awakens, as naked as the day she was born, she immediately recognizes Aedan, who, according to his agreement with the evil king, gets to spend a month visiting his old stomping grounds, the family castle, before returning to Unseelie. It's up to Jane to seduce a reluctant Aedan, help him regain his memory and thus save him before he ends up on ice forever. And what better way to attract her man than to leave racy manuscripts strewn around the castle, to take sensuous baths by the fire, and to enlist the villagers to teach her how to cook? This is a short fantasy, laced with lots of steamy sex and a dash of humor. The additional material (more than 100 pages), which includes a proposal for a romance that was never published and a deleted segment from another book, seems rather self-serving and unnecessary, of interest to only the most die-hard fans.
