Before Gabriel is able to make Sarah his mate, he is called away for months to complete some specialized training as a Hunter.  To be a Hunter is a huge honor and Gabe feels that Sarah will be ok waiting, as they always have their dreams.  Add to that he is concerned about the sexual demands he dreams of making on her and he thinks the time apart will help them both.  In fact, he befriends another shifter, Chloe, before he goes so that she will have someone to talk with about him being gone.  What he doesnít count on is that person not sharing the information with Sarah.

Sarah canít believe it the one man who she knows she can love more than life itself deserts her.  And, just when she learns an important secret about herself.  Now it looks like her high and mighty Hunter has returned, and, by the greeting he gets at the local diner, she is convinced he has been making a fool out of her with another.  She takes his friendship with Chloe to be an affair.  So she sets out to flirt with a friend of hers to show him that two can play at that game.

Now Gabe wants to claim Sarah but she is far from the loving mate that he left.  Even if he straightens things out will she forgive him?  Or will they only have their dreams?

I am a HUGE fan of the Halle Pumas series but I have to say that Only in My Dreams is my least favorite in the series thus far.  I felt bad for both characters for most of the story, and that was not the feeling I wanted with a romance story.  But this might not bother others and things do work out in the end.  That being said I was glad that Gabe was able to take us in another direction of the shifter world by becoming a Hunter.  Only in My Dreams is a well written story that many will love.
