Jake finds comfort in the arms of the lovely mysterious woman who visits him in his dreams. He soon realizes this being has awakened feelings within he’d never experienced in the past.
Sabrina answered Jake's lonely calls in the night. When strong emotions for the mortal develop, she discovers that she must follow her instincts and pursue the man.
A spell casts Sabrina into the human realm, but she must convince Jake to acknowledge his true feelings for her within four days. If she fails, she'll remain a demon for the rest of eternity. She also discovers destiny will have its way when she’s unable to control certain events and learns a powerful lesson of self-sacrifice and love.


In his mind’s eye, he and his dark angel were lying on a beach, confessing their love to one another. Jake exhaled sharply. Why was love creeping into the picture again? After all his heart had been through, he still sought love?
With a grunt, he squeezed his cock, trying to skip over the love parts while focusing on the sexual aspect, but it still didn’t work. As he stroked his cock, his dream woman planted a gentle kiss upon his lips that made his head spin and his heart lurch. He smiled when she whispered, I love you, in his ear.
He wanted to return those words, but none would form on his lips. Something blocked him. Ah, the protective wall he’d constructed just to keep others out. That’s right. No one would ever break through the carefully built walls he surrounded himself with.
Off in the distance, he literally could hear waves crashing along the sandy beach. Out of the corner of his eye, he saw the sun sinking into the lonely horizon. The sky, from what he could see, was a myriad of reds, pinks, and bluish hues. The Creator had surely outdone Himself on this beautiful piece of artwork. A feeling of completion swathed him like a blanket and he didn’t have a care in the world.
Something tried breaking through his stubborn-ass barrier. “I love you too,” he heard himself say as he felt his spirit lift. He must have fallen asleep so fast this time, but he didn’t care to analyze the situation. Perhaps his fantasy had finally consumed him. Her body was soft against his. His palms itched to explore every inch of her flesh.
Soon he was back in his bedroom, as if released from his dream. He would have been disappointed, but his mattress shifted as she snuggled next to him. It was definitely her. The jasmine perfume taunted his nostrils as fingers stroked the dark hair of his chest. He groaned as she playfully bit at his nipples.
“Mmm.” Jake groaned and opened his eyes. Silver moonlight now poured in through the room, giving him a perfect view of his dream lover. Sure enough, his dark angel was right there beside him, a loving smile painting itself on her face.
She bent down and kissed his cock. Her touch was electric, and he swore he’d go through the roof if she touched him like that again. As though he willed it, she kissed him there again. His woman continued planting dainty kisses from his cock to his navel, making Jake writhe beside her.
“You—” He’d lost his breath and thrust his hips upward. “Should stop,” he said on a moan. “Please, don’t make me want you. I can’t take this.”
“Shh, Jake,” she reassured him. Soon, they were locked in a passionate kiss, her tongue caressing his, blinding him with an emotion he’d never felt before. Inhaling her scent, he reached for her, encasing her in a strong embrace. He never wanted to let her go and was determined she wouldn’t leave this room.
She grabbed his hand, eagerly placing it between her trembling thighs. Her feminine scent had him hard as steel, and her wetness dripped down the crease of her legs. With a masculine grunt, Jake brought his fingers to his mouth, sampling her nectar.
“Oh. My. God,” he cried out in a baritone voice as he peered into her eyes, wondering what her name was. He just had to know.
“Sabrina,” she whispered. Her husky yet gentle voice sent a shiver up his spine.
Jake wrinkled his forehead in confusion. “What are you? Is this for real?” His hands explored her smooth, satiny flesh. “It feels like you’re here with me, but—”
She placed a lone finger against his lips. “We don’t have much time,” she said sadly.
Still mesmerized by her presence and beauty, he stroked her thick, curly hair. “So beautiful,” he breathed while soaking up how she looked. He just had to burn her image into his memory before she disappeared along with the sunrise.
“Do you want me all the time?” she asked as curiosity masked her gentle features.
Fear sliced through his heart. He wanted her in every way imaginable, but did it mean he would soon experience the sorrow of a broken heart again? He wasn’t sure he could withstand the pain.



Sabrina is a demon whose purpose is to seduce men through dreams into meaningless sexual encounters.  These encounters leave her feeling empty and alone and wanting something more meaningful.  One night she stumbles across Jake and their nightly encounters end up changing her life.  She senses a soul just as lost as she is as he inspires emotions in her she's never felt before.  She desperately wants the chance to be with him permanently and when given the chance she jumps at it.  Unfortunately things go horribly awry and her only recourse is to give up all for the man she loves.

Jake was cheated on by the woman he thought he'd be with forever and it's left his heart hardened to love.  The only time he finds happiness is in his nightly dreams when an angelic woman comes to shower him with affection.  When he sees her in the flesh it brings joy to his days as he accepts everything about her wholeheartedly.  He doesn't see her as a demon, she's still the angel who ended his lonely days.  Even when fate intervenes, it's the power of love and sacrifice that bring them back together.

For its short word count this story feels fully fleshed-out with a storyline full of action and romance.  The paranormal elements were seamlessly incorporated and added an intriguing and memorable element to the story.  Sabrina changes through the powerful affects of love.  She was cold and emotionless before finding Jake.  She became sweet and caring and it was cute watching her adjust to becoming human.  Normal everyday living confused her but for Jake she was willing to conform into the perfect wife.  Even though Jake was scared to tell Sabrina he loved her it was clear through every one of his actions how much she meant to him.  It's only through a cataclysmic event though that they can finally reach their HEA.  From its sexy beginning to its heartwarming end this story provides a rollercoaster of emotions and puts Ms. Knight on a list of authors to watch.

My rating for this is a B.
