Overview

The woman of his dreams…with the secret agent of his nightmares


Alix Gordon is a woman who doesn’t take life too seriously. What’s the fun in that? So when she stumbles across occult software that can bring any computer image to life, she conjures up lots of awesome outfits and accessories. And then, on one drunken, horny night, she conjures up Sir Kendall, the sexy TV ad spy . . . who looks exactly like Paul, the hot martial arts teacher who kicked her out of class three years ago.

Fighter Paul Reinhardt has good reason to hate Sir Kendall, the character he brought to life to land a part in a TV ad; he’d do anything to forget him. A cross country road trip seems just the thing . . . until Paul finds himself inexplicably drawn to Minnesota and is shocked to discover Sir Kendall - in the flesh - with the girl he’d once loved from afar. He barges into Alix and Sir Kendall’s love nest, determined to stop the madness - somehow.

But is super-spy Sir Kendall transforming into something more dangerous anyone can imagine? And what will Sir Kendall do when Paul and Alix finally give into their mad lust for each other?

Editorial Reviews

Alayna Williams, author of DARK ORACLE and ROGUE ORACLE
“A sexy, clever tale about getting what a girl wants - and trying to live long enough to regret it!"
Jeffe Kennedy, author of Rogue’s Pawn
“Carolyn Crane has a knack for understanding the human psyche, with all its romance and dark ghosts. In Mr. Real, Crane takes us on a magical romp with an unconventional heroine caught between two men – and the twin lures of fantasy and making it all real.”
Nicole Peeler, author of the Jane True Series
"I love how I never know where Carolyn Crane's books will take me. Mr. Real is an absolute joyride, full of engaging plot twists, irresistible characters, and a fascinating heroine. This book is sexy, smart, and riveting!"
Gini Koch, author of the Alien/Katherine "Kitty" Katt and the Necropolis Enforcement Files
“Carolyn Crane takes a wild-child heroine, an MMA fighter with a dark secret, and a man who may or may not have just stepped out of a TV ad and creates a wonderful mix of magic, humor, action, and steamy sex. If you like paranormal romance with spunky heroines and hunky heroes, this is the book for you!!”

    A steamy romance with seriously lovable characters! Mr. Real is

    A steamy romance with seriously lovable characters!

    Mr. Real is a real treat for fans of the Paranormal Romance genre! It isn't too heavy and doesn't dwell too much on the mystery aspect of the story, but it makes everything worthwhile come full circle.

    Personally, the best thing about this book is Paul Reinhardt. He's an accomplished athlete, a completely virile male and a rising star of professional mixed martial arts fights, but there's also that part of himself which he loathes to an unhealthy degree. It would be safe to say that the author has created a complex yet completely relatable character in Paul.

    The heroine - Alix - on the other hand, is a completely different issue. She's stubborn, thick-headed and completely unreasonable. Within the first few chapters of the novel, I wanted to rip my hair off because of her. I mean, come on! If you have your closest friend and the rest of your family reminding you time and again of how much of a problem you are, then there's probably something wrong with you!

    However, Alix is also pure-hearted. She is fiercely loyal to a fault and when push comes to shove, she could be counted on to do what's right. I guess, even if she is a little messed up and crazy, she's still a good girl. I admit that I didn't like her at the beginning, but as I read on, she just grew on me.

    Oh, and worthy of mention is Sir Kendall, too! He's like James Bond on a completely different level of crazy. Plus, I really appreciated how the narrator allowed glimpses into how Sir Kendall's mind worked. In fact, throughout the story, the narrator gives glimpses of the different perspective of the main characters.

    And just as I thought I've already figured how the story would end, a surprise twist involving a super villain is introduced into the storyline! It was awesome and definitely unique all on its own. While I understand that this story is predominantly a Paranormal Romance, the Mystery bit is such a pleasant surprise.

    This is actually the first novel of Carolyn Crane that I've read, and I can't wait to read more of her works! I highly recommend this for readers who wish to read a Paranormal Romance novel that's unique and doesn't include the usual slew of paranormal characters (vampires, werewolves, witches, etc.).
