Some Secrets Haunt You Forever....

Every night Genny Austin is tormented by nightmares of a past she can't recall. Crazy as it sounds, Genny is convinced her harrowing dreams are memories of another life she lived long ago.

Jack Brennan is having nightmares too, but his are real. His business is under siege and his life is being threatened. When Genny and Jack meet one night on a Santa Barbara beach, all Jack wants from Genny is a wild night and quick good-bye, but Genny isn't the sort for a one night stand.

Drawn to each other by feelings neither she nor Jack understand, Genny finds herself inexorably lured into a world of passion and deadly riddles. In the shadows of her dreams lurks a terrible truth, and only by unlocking the secrets of the past will she be free to find love at last.

Read an Excerpt

"Pretty rough week?" Jack asked as they walked along the sand at the edge of the beach.

Genny sighed into the darkness. "Not one of my best. I've been napping a little, which the doctor says I shouldn't do, since it disturbs my normal sleeping patterns, but I haven't really gotten much rest."

"And the dreams?"

She glanced away, her expression suddenly bleak. "Really bad, Jack. I don't know what I'm going to do."

"I'm sorry, baby. I wish I knew what to tell you."

He was certain he knew how to help her, if only she would let him. He eyed her high soft breasts, remembering the way they'd felt in his hands. He wanted her. He had since the moment he had met her. Then he thought of the promise he had made and forced his eyes back to her face. "It's getting kind of late. Maybe we ought to be going back."

She simply nodded. They made their way back along the beach, but when they finally reached the house, Genny made no effort to go in.

"Genny...baby, are you all right?"

She only shook her head. "I can't do it, Jack. I can't face it again tonight." She looked up at him and tears welled in her eyes. "I keep thinking about my nightmares, the terrible things I'll see. Come inside with me, Jack. Make love to me."

Jack took a long slow breath of air. Taking Genny to bed was what he'd been after from the start. Still, he knew the kind of man he was, not the sort for a girl like Genny. "You know he way I am...the way I'll always be. Are you sure that's what you want?"

Her lashes swept down but they couldn't hide the tear that trickled down her cheek. "I need you, Jack. I want you to stay with me, make love to me. I want you to help me forget my dreams. I want you to make me think only of you and the things you do to me. Make me forget, Jack--if only for tonight."

    The Perfect Dream

    I had never read a romance novel before, and never planned to read The Dream. But when I started I couldnt put it down. I have read it twice now and have cried both times! The characters are great and easy to fall in love with. I wish the book was longer so it wouldnt end so fast.

    Liked It !!

    This was the first book I have read of Kat's. I found the book to be pretty interesting with the haunting dreams the main character, Genny Austin kept having. The relationship between the main characters seemed like it could never work..... due to huge personality clashes... but I found it amusing how they ended up getting together. I enjoyed this one! I will definately recommend this book to someone for a good rainy-day read. I will also check out a few other books by this author.

    Unpredictable

    I enjoy romances, but I always find myself rolling my eyes at the predicatbility of books in this genre. It's so obvious they're written using a publisher-dictated story format. Martin surprised me with her creativity, and I found this book to be a real page-turner. I didn't roll my eyes once! I thoroughly enjoyed it, and I look forward to reading more of her novels, especially contemporary ones.

    Dream? Dream on...

    I read the first chapter of this book on the author's web page at katbooks.com, and found it a departure from the quality of her earlier work. The story takes off slowly, the characters are not well developed, and the dialogue is mushy.
