Adrian, also known as Sandman, Morpheus, or Bogeyman, receives energy from fears and nightmares from people living in the Earth dimension and transfers it to his people in another dimension. Kathryn Louise MacDonough has been having nightmares about a shadowy figure, while she tries to nurse her family back to health. Adrian keeps treasures, that he has collected in his lonely castle and decides that Kathryn will be his most treasured prize. Unfortunately, Adrian broke one of his peoples rules, when he brought Kathryn over.

STEALING KATHRYN is an enjoyable paranormal romance with intense, erotic love scenes and a complex, exciting world. Ms. Frank takes one of my favorite themes, beauty and the beast, and puts her own spin on it. Drawn to Kathryn's beauty and innocence, Adrian, who has become monstrous because of the negative energy he absorbs, feels he must have her. The once handsome Adrian is a beast, inside and out. He is barely clinging on to the last threads of his humanity and Kathryn becomes a lifeline. Kathryn, at first, is angry but sees Adrian's pain and wishes to help him. Kathryn seems a little wishy-washy, at times, which makes her defense of Adrian, in the end, all the more poignant.

If you enjoy a hot, beauty and the beast themed romance, give STEALING KATHRYN a try.

NOTE:  I reviewed this book for the PNR group.  I gave an impartial review.

Ms. Frank does a good job of explaining/redeeming the hero.
