Kane O’Callaghan knows what it is to have his work shown all over the world. His pieces are on display in palaces and museums, including the O’Callaghan Museum of Glass just outside of his beloved hometown of Seattle. Kane is a bit of a recluse, spending time on his farm alone and committed to his art. His life is full.
Until the day he meets her.
Wandering through museums is Anastasia Montgomery’s favorite way to spend her time. Not only does art feed her soul, but it inspires her own art of designing wedding cakes. When her muse seems to be gone, she finds her again among the beauty in the museums of Seattle, and the O’Callaghan Museum of Glass is her favorite. She’s never met the artist, but he must be absolutely brilliant, if he can make such beautiful things out of glass.
Bumping into a grumpy stranger at the museum wasn’t in Anastasia’s plan. And then discovering it was Kane himself was absolutely humiliating.
But when she sees him again at a charity fundraiser, and ends up spending an incredible, unforgettable night with the mysterious glass smith, Anastasia finds herself thinking of Kane and little else, even her precious work. Will this relationship bloom into the romance of a lifetime, or will their dreams of success get in the way of true love?
4 Heart Review by Ashley
Is there anything better than Kristen Proby's With Me in Seattle Series? Truly, with each new title she puts out I'm taken back to the first time I read this and I fall in love all over again. With the city and the big family that won't stop growing (and not in a bad way). And yes, there is a heaping dose of the Montgomery's in this one.
I adored Anastasia. How hard she worked. Her love of art. How she didn't take crap from anyone. Even the handsome stranger who got up all in her business when she was minding her own. Call it a small world, but when she ran into him again, it was all he could do to get her to talk to him. Le sigh...Kane. Talented. Hard working. Protective. Totally smitten with Anastasia. And that accent, forget about it.
I really enjoyed reading about each of their crafts. They were both artists and successful in their own right. But more than that I loved how they made it work. They carved out time for one another despite their busy schedules. How the didn't try to change one another, just accepted them as they were. How seamlessly they fit into each others lives. But when things fall apart for Kane's sister, Anastasia is caught in the cross hairs of that downward spiral that sends them all reeling.
I love how Kane stepped up and in for Anastasia. How he proved to her with his words and actions exactly how much she meant to him. Dream With Me is a not so slow-burning romance that gave me belly flutters and made me swoon for days. My fingers and toes are crossed that this isn't the last time Kristen Proby writes about the O’Callaghan family because those siblings are a riot.
About the Author
Kristen was born and raised in a small resort town in her beloved Montana. In her mid-twenties, she decided to stretch her wings and move to the Pacific Northwest, where she made her home for more than a dozen years.
During that time, Kristen wrote many romance novels and joined organizations such as RWA and other small writing groups. She spent countless hours in workshops, and more mornings than she can count up before dawn so she could write before going to work. She submitted many manuscripts to agents and editors alike, but was always told no. In the summer of 2012, the self-publishing scene was new and thriving, and Kristen had one goal: to publish just one book. It was something she longed to cross off of her bucket list.
Not only did she publish one book, she’s since published close to thirty titles, many of which have hit the USA Today, New York Times and Wall Street Journal Bestsellers lists. She continues to self publish, best known for her With Me In Seattle and Boudreaux series, and is also proud to work with William Morrow, a division of HarperCollins, with the Fusion Series.
Kristen and her husband, John, make their home in her hometown of Whitefish, Montana with their two pugs and two cats.
