I've been reading a lot of anthologies lately. I like reading stories by different authors, usually along some kind of theme. Occasionally, I find a new author in a group that really peaks my interest and I end up with several of their individual novels added to my collection. That happened with the anthology "Man of My Dreams." In this group you'll find the novel Jett (Descended) by Dana Pratola. It's a contemporary romance with a supernatural element - not scary, more like superheros. I'm not usually a fan of such stories, but this one captured my attention and I truly loved the characters. It didn't hurt that the heroine was an artist. I liked it so much, I bought all three of the rest of the series. Can't wait to read them this coming week. So here's the first paragraph (because one line isn't enough) of the first book of this series by Dana Pratola:
"The light was no match for him. He could become one with any shadow or light, keeping his presence secret for as long as he wished, causing a man to believe his mind was playing tricks. Or he could be the last thing that man saw before he met his Maker. There were prices to be paid for his rare gift--consequences--but none dissuaded him from his mission."
