I read Jamie Leigh Hansen's "Cursed" without reading, "Betrayed", the first book of this series. That may have been why it took me a bit longer to get up to speed on who was who and their attendant motivations. I've already put "Betrayed" on my TBR since I found "Cursed" such an interesting read. Hansen's series is about gods and goddesses, angels and demons, and their descendants. I'm still not sure I have ALL the back-story, and I had to read the ending twice to really understand it, but I enjoyed the book for all that.

Alex is a descendant of an angel. He's also able to heal both himself and others. Apart from this, he's led mostly a normal kind of life...except in his dreams. For twelve years he's continued to dream of the girl he loved who turned him down and moved away without word. But in his dreams, they still meet...and occasionally make exquisite love. When he suddenly is 'gifted' with a dream of the future where he watches his 'dream girl' die, he's confused and a bit worried. When he runs into his 'dream girl' who has moved back home to take care of her family, he's more than worried.

Beth learned at a young age about her ability to actually pull others into her dreams. The first time she did it to escape a horrible event...and ended up punishing a would-be rapist. Then after she fled town, she used it to keep in touch with her first love...Alex. But her fears of men and her upbringing have taught her that love isn't possible for her, and it will take all of Alex's powers of persuasion and some help from a few powerful friends, to break through her fears.

This book is weighted more toward the fantasy than the romance. So if that's not your cuppa, then you may want to avoid it. If you do like fantasy, especially less dark urban fantasy, then you may well enjoy this fascinating glimpse into the highly imaginative mind of Jamie Leigh Hansen. ( )

In dreams…

For twelve years the seductive dream has always been the same—a candlelit room, satin sheets, and a mysterious woman. Then, one night, everything changes. A mysterious entity shows Alex Foster a vision of his dream woman in danger from demonic forces.

Elizabeth Raines has returned home to Spokane to care for her dying mother and abandoned nieces and nephews. With their family home ready to crash down around them and no help from her siblings, she carries the weight of the world on her shoulders. Until the day Alex shows up, unwilling to love her only in their shared dreams.

But the real world is much bigger than a dream. An ancient enemy has awakened, and only Alex and Elizabeth’s combined supernatural gifts can save them.
