The only constant in Summer St. Clare's life is Paladin, the fictional hero who's becoming more real with every kiss.

Struggling novelist Summer St. Clare can't remember her murdered mother's face, or most of her childhood before the age of twelve. The only constant in her life is Paladin, once her imaginary childhood friend, now the handsome detective of her urban fantasy series.

There's nothing imaginary about Paladin now. Hot, seductive and dangerous, Paladin blurs the line between fantasy and reality. The passion Summer experiences in his arms makes her question what's real -- or whether she cares.

Someone else believes in Paladin, and he wants Summer dead. Her confusion mounts when she fights off five attackers with a display of dazzling martial arts skills she doesn't remember acquiring. As she searches for answers and runs for her life, her dream lover becomes more real with every kiss.

This is the first book by Angela Knight I have read and I really enjoyed this book. Summer has no memory of anything before she was about 13. For as long as she remembers she has had an imaginary friend named Paladin. He started out as a friend and as she grew they relationship changed. She has the most vivid dreams/hallucinations of them making love and having sex. She has some horrible graphic dreams as well. She is twenty five now and moved back into the house her mother left her after her aunt died. She owns a book store and is a writer herself. She is about to learn everything so thought is true isn’t. Her entire world is about to flipped upside down. Paladin is real and not just something in her head. Someone else knows about Paladin and the way to get to him is through Summer. Paladin doesn’t want to hurt Summer but a spell was put on her and when he breaks it she is going to remember everything and when it all comes rushing back it isn’t going to be pleasant. Will Summer be able to forgive Paladin for keeping so much from her? Will she be able to accept this new way of life? How will all this affect Summer and Paladin relationship? This book was very interesting to read. There are gods and the take on them is different from other books I have read with gods in them. These gods need an avatar to be able to use their magic. There are a community of people who are breed to be the next avatar for different gods. Summer is fun, sweet, if not a little crazy. Paladin is a total alpha male and would do anything for Summer. While they share the same body they aren’t the same person. Summer is torn she knows that she will have to marry someone else and have children with them so that Paladin will have another avatar to enter later in life but she hates the idea of being with anyone besides Paladin that way. Paladin isn’t exactly thrilled about the idea either. But he can’t be with her while is a part of her. The ending takes a nice surprise turn. I am eager to read the next book in this series. I am also eager to read some of Angela’s other books.
