Jacquelyn Frank-- "Stealing Kathryn" (The Gatherers)

Sandman, Angus, Morpheus. He is know by many names, except his true one, Adrian. When he departs his world, it is to enter the sacred space of sleep, and he is not there to sow sweet dreams. Adrian's mission is to reap the dark energy of nightmares, work that has twisted his soul as well as is once-handsome face. Now, he lives only to await the day darkness finally overcomes him...and to collect exquisite reminders of what he's lost....
But there is one treasure that stands apart. Having risked everything to obtain her, Adrian soon realizes his mistake. For Kathryn has a wholly unexpected power over him, not only for what she represents, but for what she IS: a soul with desires as strong as his own, tempered by compassion that could save Adrian from his self-made hell---or condemn them both...

***This is the second story of The Gatherers, and not my favorite. Julian's story was more informative about what the gatherers truly are. If you have not read Hunting Julian, you will not understand the world they live in. And there is not much "set up" in this one. This story is solely about Kathryn saving Adrian....from himself. I enjoyed the love story between the two, but there just wasn't a "spark" in this one. Nice story overall, but not a keepsake book. This book just seemed to be a bridge to maybe a new world Frank is taking us to??? Hope so, she has quite an imagination. The worlds she creates are like nothing i have ever read. It is definitely NOT your usual paranormal romance.
