Dreaming of You, a stunning new novel by Francis Ray which underlines
the thin line between friendship and relationship

National best-selling author, Francis Ray, offers a simmering story
about the highs and lows of a friendship that turns intimate in,
DREAMING OF YOU, (St. Martins Press, 0312939736, paperback, $6.99)
scheduled for release nationwide, August 29, 2006.

Brandon Grayson is the next son to be married and his mother has
single females hiding in the cupboards. To avoid matrimony he seeks
shelter with the safest person he knows, his dearest friend, Santa Fe
hotelier, Faith McBride.

Faith has loved Brandon since she was a pesky wallflower in high
school, and she plans to do something about it. Her confidence falters
when she examines her full-figure in the mirror. She’s not like the
model thin women Brandon dates, but she has plans for that too.

Faith literally changes while Brandon isn’t looking. He now sees
enticing lips, a curvaceous body, and a sweet familiarity. He is
convinced an affair with the one person he trusts will not get him
into trouble. However, with his new feelings for Faith, Faith’s secret
campaign, and strong outside forces, Brandon maybe jumping from the
frying pan right into the fire.

Francis Ray continues to honor readers with tales from the
unforgettable Grayson family. Dreaming of You will delight readers as
they share Faith’s unfaltering dream of life with Brandon and
humorously sympathize with Brandon’s fate.
Praise for Dreaming of You . . . .

“[The Dreaming of You], novel in Ray’s Grayson family saga is a warm,
winning story of friendship, lust and love—and how the lines between
them can blur. . .The pair’s cat-and-mouse game is suspenseful and
fun. . .the novel is sweet and honest without being saccharine, making
it a full, enjoyable read.” – Publisher’s Weekly

“In this next perfect installment of the Grayson Family series, Ray
does an outstanding job of bringing to life mother Ruth Grayson and
her mission to marry off her children. Wondering what she’ll come up
with next will have readers turning pages at every opportunity. A
great read from beginning to end, it’s even excellent for an immediate
re-read.” – Romantic Times

“An authentic romance, “Dreaming of You” is a sweet story about the
underdog finding true love. The goodness and upstanding nature of the
lovers is undeniable and highly attractive. The writing is excellent,
being both realistic and entertainingly colorful. The dialogue, key to
an exciting romance novel, is equally substantial and revealing. And
of course, like all the best-enjoyed romance, it contains a nice
spattering of passionate and provocative moments.” — Nancy Morris,

“Ms. Ray does an awesome job drawing this reader in with her
charismatic characters, lovely imagery, gripping plot and blistering
sensuality.” – Billy Jo, Romance Junkies Chat Coordinator and Reviewer

“The chemistry was electric between them and the secondary characters
added to the story rather than detract from it. The pace was smooth,
the dialogue realistic, and the sense of place was vividly drawn.” –
Lettetia, Multicultural Romance Writer Official Reviewer
