From Street of Dreams by Marianne Stephens:

“Good Lord.   Look at this place.  Is this hideous or what?”


Nick’s assessment matched Eileen’s impression.  Every color imaginable swirled in wide patterns on the building.  For a Monday night, Eileen was amazed at how many people milled about the outside of “The twilight Zone A Go-Go”.


They found a parking space two blocks away and walked to the club, entering a long line of eager patrons.  Eileen surveyed those standing nearby with a sense of dread dampening her spirits.


“Nick,” she whispered, “is it me or are they all much younger?”


He frowned, quirking a smirk to one side of his face.  “Nope.  It’s not you.  We’re definitely gonna be classified as chaperones here.”

About Street of Dreams:

This is a suggestive romance (love scenes are not graphic).

Mission Impossible describes what Detectives Nick Olson and Eileen Murphy face while chasing escaped fugitives. The easy part? Battling for control of their mission while time traveling from 2039 to 1965 before history’s timeline can be changed. The hardest part? Resisting hidden desires for each other while posing as newlyweds and sharing a heart-shaped bed.

Eileen is an expert on the era. Attracted to Nick, she fights an overwhelming need to satisfy her passion involving him, but past heartaches make her unwilling to trust any man. Nick can’t deny his attraction to her, but, unlucky in love, he swears off meaningful relationships and fears Eileen’s ability to bypass the barriers he’s set up to protect his heart.

A night of passion leaves unanswered questions and heartache while murder, dead ends and danger confront them at every turn. Finalizing their case will take instinct, combined skills and strength. Is it too late for them to use the same abilities and find love?
