Ever think Scrooge had it right before the ghosts ruined his life and left him vulnerable?

At one time Aidan O'Conner was a world renowned celebrity who gave of himself and his money without wanting anything in return. Until those around him took without asking. Bitter betrayal came at him from all directions. Even those closest to him. Now he's a man who wants nothing of the world or anyone who's a part of it.

Until the night he finds a stranger on his doorstep that he's seen before... in his dreams.

Born on Olympus as a goddess, Leta knows nothing of the human world. But a ruthless enemy has driven her from the world of dreams, into the home of the only man she knows. Her immortal powers are derived from human emotions and Aidan's anger and hostility are just the fuel she needs to defend herself.

One cold winters night that will change both their lives.

Trapped together by a storm, the two of them must do the one thing they swore they never would. Trust.

My review

I don't know what is happening with Dream-Hunters, or why they get their own books, but if this keeps happening, I am going to erase their novels from my wish list. Permanently. And I am not even sure Upon the Midnight Clear was a novel. It read more like a short story. Which of course brings us to the problem that with the number of pages it had, it was probably humanly impossible to show a normal development between the heroes, or fully analyze and solve their problems.

I mean the book had potential and I can't deny there were scenes that grabbed me, but given the fact how quickly everything was wrapped up and characters changed their entire percept of the world in a few hours, it felt not only unbelievable, but also forced.

I am sad to say, but I liked the added glimpse into the old character in a very short story Holiday Gatherings more than I liked Upon the Midnight Clear itself.

Rating 2.5
