Lynn Viehl-- "Dreamveil" (Novel of the Kyndred)

Rowan Dietrich knows how hard life can be. After running away from her abusive home life, she struggles to survive on the streets. The brutal lessons she learned while there still resonate in her mind and heart. Now she wants to start anew, find a job, and keep her identity as a Kyndred--as well as her ability to "dreamveil" herself into the object of others' desires--secret.

She isn't using her gift when world-class chef Jean-Marc Dansant helps her after a motorcycle spill. He's genuinely attracted to Rowan's own beauty and strength. But just as Rowan begins to find a life for herself, the GenHance corporation pursues her, eager to take her back to where she was created. And a bounty hunter hired by a ruthless millionaire wants Rowan for his own sinister reasons...

*** (3.0 stars)
This book starts off confusing, if Veihl had just told us from the start that Rowan was the girl who worked for (and fell in love with Mathias) it would have made more sense. The snobby french food stuff was just annoying and pointless. And it seemed there were too many broken pieces of stories all happening at the same time, it didn't flow well. None of it came together until the very end, and i was disappointed. I wanted to know more about Sean and Dansant, and how they came to be. I hope we learn more about them in the future. This book left me wondering whether or not i will bother with the rest of the series....
