I love how the Heroine is different. Usually, I’m the crazy one on the group and as much fun as that is, it’s not always the easiest position to be in. There’d be a lot to say about being taken seriously, and the Heroine of this book would totally get that.
The book is Montana Dreams by Kim Law (The Wildes of Birch Bay #4), out a couple of days ago in the Adult, Contemporary, Romance genre.
Sometimes dreams change…and sometimes it takes a dream reader to make it happen.
When Jaden Wilde’s girlfriend turns down his marriage proposal just months before he receives his master’s in counseling, he’s convinced that it’s cold feet. Until he learns that her no came at the advice of a new age “dream reader.” But Arsula’s hardly the woo-woo hippie his scholarly mind imagined. She’s charming, smart, and uncannily perceptive. And before long, he’s drawn to her—despite his ongoing skepticism for how her practice works.
Arsula’s intuitions led her to Birch Bay not to guide Jaden’s girlfriend—but to guide him to his best life possible. As the odd one out in an unsupportive family, Arsula can relate to the struggle to find one’s path, and she wants to see Jaden with the woman of his dreams. Although she’s cautious of being the rebound girl, what she’s starting to feel for him is too real to ignore.
When Jaden’s own volatile family issues come to a head and his doubts are made resoundingly clear, Arsula worries she’s misread the signs. Maybe they’re all wrong for each other. Maybe he should be with his ex. She’s supported him, but if he can’t believe in her, how will they ever find out if they’re truly meant to be?
“Jaden.”She said his name calmly but with heavy inflection.
“What?”And he sounded like he was ten years old again.
“Are you just going to keep standing there staring at me like that?”
He was looking at her towel again. “I’m thinking it’s what I’ll do until you force me to stop.”
At that, she busted out laughing, and he said a silent prayer that the up-and-down movements of her chest would cause the towel to fall. He narrowed his eyes into slits and added in a little mental telepathy for good measure, but the towel stayed stubbornly in place.
“I can’t help it.” He gave up on any thought of having manners and attempted to explain his predicament. He’d been naked with that body three weeks ago, and his worthless memory hadn’t been kind enough to hold on to any of it for him. “It’s just so much better than I’d imagined. And trust me. My imagination is stellar.”
All hints of humor fled, and she dipped down, leaning her head to the side until her eyes met his. “Are you telling me that you don’t remember seeing me naked before? At all?”
“Well, now.” Her tone changed instantly to one that was more teasing than laughing. “Doesn’t that leave the situation a bit lopsided?” Her grin grew evil, and he was reminded of calling her the devil that first morning. “Because I happen to remember everythingthat I saw.”
He swallowed past the lump in his throat. “And what exactly did you see?”
Her smile turned all-knowing. “Everything.”
