Jewelry designer, Jade Starr's paranormal gift to set emotions in metals and gems has made her the target of a powerful and ruthless enemy bent on revenge. Two years earlier, that same enemy had sent his men to ambush her and her bodyguard, Blake. Unknown to Jade, Blake was really Ash Hunter working undercover.
Hunter, whose appearance has been changed by life-saving surgery, can't remember the months leading up to the attack, including his deep attraction to Jade. Now he's assigned, once more as her bodyguard. Lately, he's disturbed by dreams about a woman, resembling Jade, who once betrayed him.
Jade, who thinks Blake died, is startled by Hunter's eerie resemblance to Blake. She learns the truth but is forced to keep the knowledge a secret while her love for him flares higher.
As danger tightens around them, Hunter fights his attraction to this woman he believes had tried to kill him. He'd take a bullet for Jade, but he doesn't trust her.

What The Reviewers Are Saying...
Overall rating: 5 Hearts
Sensuality rating: Very sensual
Barbara Clark has written one of the best stories I have read all year. Jade, Ash and their powerful enemy are all complex characters with strong motives and desires for achieving their real and understandable goals. This story has so many layers to it that it is embedded with hope, love, desire, distrust, envy and pain. Ms. Clark does a wonderful job of creating a villain that is the true opposite of her heroine, and gives him concrete motivations for his actions, as unbelievable as they are sometimes. It is difficult to accept that such evil can truly exist, but Ms. Clark manages it beautifully. Jade only wants to use her gift to help those, but she knows it has a darker side that only her desire for goodness and health keeps her from tapping into. In turn, Ash's mistrust of Jade has some disastrous side-effects that almost destroys their relationship.
In essence, Jade Dreams is a story of love overcoming evil on a journey littered with casualties along the way, and I highly recommend taking the trip. --Kathryn for The Romance Studio

"Jade Dreams by Barbara Clark is a rollercoaster ride of emotions from the very first chapter. Barbara keeps you belted in and won't let you go until the very last page has been read. Ash is man that won't let himself feel anymore because he has been hurt too much. Jade is the eternal optimist and can see nothing but the good in each person even if it means her life. The chemistry between Ash and Jade was touching and heartbreaking at the same time. You wanted them together and cringed every time something went wrong but sighed when it went right. I hated to say goodbye to both Ash and Jade but now I can't wait for the next book by Barbara Clark."
