Dove Hansen has a mystery dream lover. He meets up with her every time she closes her eyes. But the 'encounters' lately have been leaving her on edge and wondering if she is crazy - not so good for her day job as a tutor to the world's most brilliant five year old.
Anthros is on a mission. Coming to Earth to save his planet and civilization as he knows it, he takes the name Mark Arianos. The oxygen-rich Earth air makes him appear to be a strung out junkie, so for further cover, he joins Dove's two slightly dotty aunts for 'rehabilitation'.
The attraction between Dove and Mark is instantaneous, but each has a reason for feeling it is wrong. Dove doesn't want to get involved with an addict who could break her heart, no matter how sexy she finds him. For Mark, sex on his planet is a huge no-no, and indulging in it could compromise his mission and get him killed.
So what are these two going to do? Keep meeting in Dove's dreams, of course. Only Dove doesn't know that the mystery dream lover is actually Mark. She is torn between the elusive 'dream man' and the flesh-and-blood one before her. Can she find a way to trust Mark, a former junkie? Or will her caution save her and the people close to her?
Being in rehabilitation has put Mark in the best position to complete his mission - not only is he near Dove, but he is also close to the gifted boy who can save his people. What happens to the mission as he starts to fall in love with Dove? Will he be able to betray her by stealing the child she tutors?
The second book in a series, A LICK AND A PROMISE has some wacky moments that will keep you chuckling, and enough romance to make you sigh wistfully. The growth that both characters go through during the book is fun to witness and the sex scenes…well let's just say, I enjoyed them and I think you will too. The storyline is original and well put together. If you are looking for a light-hearted, cute story, this book is a nice way to pass the time.
