Synopses & Reviews
“Anyone who loves my work should love hers.”
“If you have yet to add Liu to your must-read list, youre doing yourself a disservice.”
New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Marjorie M. Liu has captivated readers with her remarkable Dirk and Steele novels, proving herself to be one of todays most brilliantly imaginative creators of paranormal romance. Lui reaches new heights with In the Dark of Dreams, the breathtakingly sensual story of a young womans passionate reunion with a magnificent man from the sea—and the dark mission that binds them both.
"Liu's powerful 10th Dirk & Steele paranormal romance (after 2009's The Fire King) is a satisfying adventure of intense emotion and compelling characters. After a chance beach meeting, young Jenny Jameson and merboy Perrin meet in dreams for years until they find each other in the flesh as adults. Together, they attempt to solve the mystery of a murdered mermaid Guardian and save the world from monsters who wake underneath the sea. Liu provides a delicious treat for those who like their romance based on love, connection, and shared adventures rather than raw lust and conflict. Tension comes from external dangers, and kissing, handholding, and magical dreams overshadow sex. Recurring characters keep this installment connected to the series, but new readers will be able to dive easily into Liu's world of supernatural researchers and explorers. (Dec.)"

She could never forget the boy with the ice blue eyes . . .
She was only twelve when she saw the silver boy on the beach, but Jenny has never stopped dreaming about him. Now she is grown, a marine biologist charting her own course in the family business—a corporation that covertly crosses the boundaries of science into realms of the unknown . . . and the incredible.
And now he has found her again, her boy grown into a man: Perrin, powerful and masculine, and so much more than human, leaving Jenny weak with desire and aching for his touch.
But with their reunion comes danger. For Perrin and Jenny—and all living creatures—their only hope for preventing the unthinkable lies in a mysterious empire far beneath the sea . . . and in the power of their dreams.
An exciting new installment in Liu's award-winning Dirk & Steele series, in which high stakes and sizzling passion collide. Original.
