S.E.X. Review~ Dreamer's Destiny by Tempeste O'Riley

People don’t just materialize into reality simply because you want them to so desperately that waking up breaks your heart. 

Liam Grady is the owner of the Feathered Quill, a quirky little bookstore in Asheville, and—though he doesn’t realize it yet—a dream walker. His last relationship failed almost a year ago, and he’s not had the interest or nerve to pursue anyone he’s met since.
Cameron Danu is a tattoo artist from rural Georgia. Cameron is left without a job after his boss, Jose, is forced to close the shop after a heart attack. When Cameron learns Jose has set up an interview for him at a small tattoo parlor in Asheville, he hopes for a fresh start in a new town.
Fate brings Cameron and Liam together, and they realize they’ve met before—in their dreams. A chance encounter and a winged tattoo might lead them to their destiny—if fear doesn’t turn their dreams into a nightmare.  

“I found it a beautiful tale of unhappiness changed to romance and then love with a happy ending.”
—Rainbow Book Reviews, on “Designs of Desire”

Designs of Desire is a tough realistic book that is touched by violence countered by the growing love between the two heroes.”
—Sensual Reads, on “Designs of Desire”

“It paints a stunning image of rebirth as Deacon and Kaden's relationship begins to unfurl, like a rose as it opens its petals to the sun.”
—Carly’s Book Reviews, on “Caged Sanctuary”

“This is my favorite in this series so far. I love seeing how these characters are growing, all of them. As individuals, as couples, as friends, and as a family.”
—MM Good Book Reviews, on “Desires’ Guardian”

“The writer did an excellent job with the characters, they are likable and perfect. Not perfect in the way that they have no flaws, but in a way that they grab you and complement each other.”
—Love Bytes Reviews, on “Temptations of Desire”

“Tempeste created an amazing world for these paranormal species. I got lost in the story and wondering how all the pieces wove together.”
—Molly Lolly, on “Whiskers of a Chance” 

Tempeste O’Riley is an out and proud pansexual genderfluid whose best friend growing up had the courage to do what they couldn’t—defy the hate and come out. He has been their hero ever since.

Tempe is a hopeless romantic who loves strong relationships and happily-ever-afters. They has done many things in their life, yet writing has always drawn them back—no matter what else life has thrown their way. They counts her friends, family, and Muse as their greatest blessings in life. They lives in Wisconsin with their children, reading, writing, and enjoying life—especially now that they have joined the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence® (as Novice Sister Eroti-Quill… can’t imagine where that name came from).

Tempe is also a proud PAN member of Romance Writers of America®, WisRWA, and Rainbow Romance Writers. Tempe’s preferred pronouns are they/them/their/theirs/themselves. To learn more about Tempeste and their writing, visit

Liam and Cameron have known each other for many years, just not in the waking realm. Liam was a dream walker and his soul sought out its mate, the two men carrying on a relationship in a dream state, until they finally met in person. Both were shocked when the realization hit that they were each flesh and blood, sending both men into a tailspin.

Once they grasped the reality and Liam learned of his true Wiccan nature, they began to forge a life and bond which some attempted to destroy, but to no avail.

I enjoyed the fast-paced story and the conflicting issues, along with the wonderful character development.

Dreamer’s Delight by Tempeste O’Riley was a well-developed, character driven story that kept me interested and intrigued. Not one to know much about the Wiccan world, Ms. O’Riley delivered an educational flow, that allowed this reader to not be immersed in the story, but also learn something new.

Liam and Cameron were sweet and edgy, each bringing their own spice to the story. They cared for each other and demonstrated their feelings in actions and words. Ms. O’Riley allowed for each of them to grow individually and together as the story evolved.

The secondary characters were wonderful and enhanced the overall premise of the tale. I hope there are future books instore or at least…Where are they now?...

Di and Nosha, Sarah and Bass, added a specific element, which if not for the careful hand of Ms. O’Riley may have seemed misplaced. Instead, they delivered depth and clarity.

Sexy scenes along with sexy men, Dreamer’s Delight is a must read.
