"very nice read, funny too!"
Marianne Chalmers, librarian for Starling City has had a
very bad year. The stress of her husband Buddy being
killed on an oil rig over a year ago has caused her to do
some traveling while asleep. Her high-school friend, county
Sheriff Cody Greene, needs to find out why and get it
stopped before they get into more trouble than they already
When her assistant takes Marianne to a friend for a
concoction of herbs to help her sleep, Marianne gets more
than she bargained for. Her dreams mirror the projects she
does in the library with a LOT of hot imagination thrown
in. Or is it imagination? When she reads about medieval
knights she dreams of them, when she reads about
cowboys...well, you get the point.
Beautiful Dreamer by Celine Chatillon is a very nice
read. Cody Greene is busy with escaping bulls, a young
deputy with the 'hots' for a tourist and trying to corral
the sleepwalking librarian. His deputy Benny, who has been
abducted by aliens??, meets the niece of the local family
(Far-Out Phyleesha) who is causing many more problems than
she is helping with. Who is the Knight in Shining Armor;
the cowboy, the Sheriff, or the Deputy? What is in that
sleeping potion? In a hysterically funny, well-written
novella we find all the answers and ask more questions!

Can a sexy, sleepwalking librarian corral a commitment-shy sheriff during the mayhem of rodeo week? When Marianne the Librarian sleepwalks into the brawny arms of handsome Sheriff Cody Greene sparks fly and an erotic night of pleasure ensues.
A confirmed bachelor, Cody realizes Marianne isn't really the "love 'em and leave 'em" type of woman he's used to entertaining in bed, and he's worried. But by the end of the week--and after surviving a series of livestock-related calls and some "sleepless" nights--Cody is able to conquer both his fear of stampeding cattle and his fear of commitment.
