Dream Loving

If, like me, you really do adore a book of stories that are not sex tales but stories with sex in them then you will love this book probably as much as I do! Dream Lover is a great read and I totally recommend trying to get a copy.
Great story lines
Cover art is "safe"
Easy to read

extremely useful review
Dream Lover Paranormal Tales of Erotic Romance edited by Kristina Wright is exactly the sort of book I really love. it is an anthology of stories where romance and the story are the important part and the sex is sort of worked into the mix in such a way that it doesn't detract from the story.

The theme of this book begins with the cover art which depicts a beautiful young woman just about to kiss a handsome dark haired man. The theme is further discussed and explained by Megan Hart, author of Tempted. She provides a very informative and intriguing foreword for the book. Then you come to the editor's explanation of what she was looking for when she compiled the anthology. Kristina Wright has a way of making you really, really want to read the book and this book was no exception. Yes, I am quite a fan of Ms. Wright!

The book has a number of talented authors, some of which I have read other works from and a few were new to me. The authors are as follows: Justine Elyot, Delilah Devlin, Shanna Germain, A.D.R. Forte, Craig Sorensen, Kristina Lloyd, Saskia Walker, Sacchi Green, Nikki Magennis, Alana Noel Voth, Victoria Janssen, Lana Fox,Lucy Felthouse, Kate Pearce, Madeline Moore, Ericka Hiatt, and of course Kristina Wright.

At the end of the book is a little blurb about each author and a longer write up on the editor. I love Cleis Press for this little feature because it allows you to visit the websites of your favorite authors and see w2hat they might be working on.

Love Resurrection by Justine Elyot began the book on a jarring note for me. I usually like more esoteric type prose but this story just seemed to meander around unsure of what it wanted to be until it sort of became an odd ghost story. I wasn't all that impressed with this story and it bothered me because I usually like Ms. Elyot's work.

On the other hand I fell in love with Dreaming By The Sea by Delilah Devlin. The story is a very hope filled retelling of the Little Mermaid. I love the surprise twist at the end.

Rainmaker by A.D.R. Forte is a great story that has an amazing sex scene. Erotic, and occult all blend up to make a breathtaking read.

I adore cowboy romance. It's one of my best kept secrets and when I began reading Shattered Belle by Craig J. Sorensen, I was intrigued but this is a ghost story and an occult story rolled and folded together. I love the way it ends.

Have you ever entered a slowly decaying building and felt like there was something or someone there just on the edge of awareness? In [italics|Living Off Lovers] kristina Lloyd gives us an example of a ghost story seen from an angle not normally tackled. There is no build up it's just hit the ground running sort of storytelling!

Eternal love with an occult twist is the theme of [italics|Where The Heart Is] by Saskia Walker. Imagine being carted away from your heart's mate by your concerned family. Through lifetimes he searches for you until finally you meet on a dark moor...beautiful!

What if your guardian angel fell in love with you in the carnal sense of the word? Bound as you are to your guardian what havok would that wreck in your life? Or would it turn your life around because the creator of the romance story is a gentle and benevolent creatrix? Read Thief of Dreams by Kristina Wright to find out.

All in all I found this to be a great and quick read. I tried to limit myself to one story at bedtime but that was impossible because the book seems to have the ability to draw me in...perhaps the book is reading me...

    I guess you know the importance of the written word then! I am in awe of librarians and volunteers. My allergies to book dust prevent me from working in a library but it would be like working in a church for me. Much love to library workers!
