Sleepy Hollow Dreams starts really dark and eerie...and very, very sensual. Ms. Kincaid has a magical touch with the descriptive word, without going overboard, and had me right there in the moment. It progresses nicely into a tale of forbidden love, with an evil temptress type character threatening the happy ever after. The whole feel of Sleepy Hollow was throughout this tale, and Ryck had me swooning. If there are more dream voyager tales, I'm first in line to read them! A perfectly creepy, romantic and sensual tale.

Katy Lyndhurst owns a bowling alley in the town of Sleepy Hallow, New York. Every night she dreams of a handsome man who provides her with many pleasures. One night she runs from her house because she senses danger. As Katy is running, she hears hoof beats behind her. It is the Headless Horseman of Sleepy Hallow. She runs into a cemetery and into the arms of her dream man. Katy questions whether he is actually there or is she dreaming again? He assures her that he is real. So begins the story of Sleepy Hallow Dreams by author Taryn Kincaid. Who is this dream man? He is none other than Ryck Van Winkle. It seems that Ryck was constantly shirked his responsibilities and spent his time drinking and wenching. After a night of drinking, Ryck hears music and follows it into the foothills. He gets trapped in another dimension where he meets the queen, Vivienne who also happens to be a succubus. Vivienne makes Ryck stay with him. Because Ryck couldn't please her, Vivienne places a curse on him. He can go to women in their dreams and give them pleasure, but receive no pleasure himself. He may not visit any woman more than once.
This went on until he found Katy. Ryck felt a pull with Katy. He returned multiple times even though there would be consequences. Eventually Ryck materializes in our dimension and must fight to stay here. Together with Katy, Ryck fights Vivienne and wins his freedom. They both find the love and family they were longing for.This story was an interesting modern take on the Rip Van Winkle legend with erotic themes. I enjoyed the modern version of the Rip Van Winkle legend.

Katy has been needy for a man. She has been having very explicit dreams with the same man that could almost be real. One of her explicit dreams leads her to believe that it actually took place. Living in Sleepy Hollow she starts to wonder if she is going crazy; she does leads a simple life and owns a bowling alley. Ryck is drawn to Katy and visits her in her dreams each chance he gets. Long ago Vivienne, a demonic queen puts a curse on Ryck, that allows him to pleasure females but made it hard for him to visit the same woman more than once and not allow him to experience pleasure for himself. Defying the demonic queen sets off a chain reaction for Ryck and Katy.
I would consider this read a 3.95 stars with a strong 4 stars behind. With my rating, I still really enjoyed the book. I thought it started out interesting and steamy. With the twist of the Sleepy Hollow feel and Ryck the book surely gives a paranormal and gloomy setting. I think after Ryck's character is explained, along with Katy's dream, the book becomes clear, and it took off for me. Well done to the author, I look forward to reading more from the author.
Enjoyment: FAIR to GOOD
Length: 110 pages depend on your format.
