ABOUT THE BOOK
Title: The Dreaming Beauty Series: Standalone follow-up to The Masked Baron Author: Anneka R. Walker Publisher: Covenant Communications Release Date: July 11, 2022 Genre: Clean & Wholesome Romance / Historical / Regency / Fairy Tale Once upon a dream, two cursed people fell in love . . . Tansy White doesn’t want to end up alone like her three aunts who raised her, but when she is betrayed by her would-be betrothed, she fears she might never change her fate. At her aunts’ suggestion, she seizes the chance to visit Rose Cottage, the country home of her late mother. For years, dreams of the cottage have haunted Tansy, and she is convinced it holds the answer to her hidden past. But after getting caught in a terrible storm, she meets a man who is just as determined as she is to learn all her secrets. Marcus Taylor, brother to the Duke of Westmorland, is also troubled by vivid dreams. On a sleepless night, as a tempest rages outside his brother’s estate, he makes a discovery far more mysterious than any dream: a young woman, cold as ice, lies unconscious in the library, and he is sure she is the key to solving his problems. When she wakes, what begins as a shared quest for information turns into an unexpected friendship. As they piece together the fragments of their pasts, they discover a tangled web of lies, and their feelings for each other become just as entwined. But is their love as strong as their dreams . . . or their fate? PURCHASE LINKS*: Goodreads | Amazon | Barnes & Noble | BookBub

WHILE THE WORLD SLEPT, MARCUS’s mind came awake. With the crack of thunder
and a brilliant streak of light piercing through the gap in his curtains, he sat up in his bed. Sleep often evaded him, but even trying tonight seemed useless. Flipping his covers off, he donned his robe and slippers, and it was back to his makeshift study in his brother’s library, where he’d research until his eyes drooped and his dreams were empty.
Marcus lit a candle and noiselessly moved through the dark corridor. Blasted storm.
Though, it did spark an idea in his mind. If the weather played a role in body aches, it likely
affected the subconscious too. Natural fears and uneasiness would lead to dreams, no doubt. It would be worth researching.
He held the flickering light out in front of him as he went down the stairs and stepped
through the open library door, but instead of the late Duke of Westmorland greeting him silently from his portrait, what he saw made him stumble back. A figure, an unknown person. Whether bandit or boy he did not know, but his heart raced and his hand on the candle tightened.
