Spencer “The Sandman” Powell co-hosts a late night radio talk show when a female caller threatens to “sever his head” while he sleeps. This unknown stalker has also hurled other death threats towards Spencer. To keep the shock jock safe, the radio station hires the Core Group Protection agency. Nathan Pruitt assigns bodyguard Jasmine White to keep Spencer safe.
After working a “prom night” or two, Jasmine knows that the Sandman case is her chance to prove that she is more than just the token female. However, Jasmine struggles to keep her libido in check, as she is very attracted to Spencer. He uses his best weapon, sharp double entendres, to restrain his own desires for Jasmine. As Spencer and Jasmine begin to fall in love, his assailant closes in for the kill.
BRING ME A DREAM is an engaging romantic suspense that stars two likable lead charcaters thrown together in a gender bending bodyguard situation. The story line works because Jasmine is believable in her profession and Spencer is the type of hunk that lives up to his radio moniker as he will keep readers awake dreaming of him. Though the identity of the stalker seems a bit stretched for shock value, fans will appreciate the talent of Robyn Amos to bring readers a dream of a story.
