OK so I only read angela knight's story and you can say I was not disapointed there was alot and I mean ALOT of really steamy really kinky sex scenes.
If you have read angela knights other stuff such as Jane's Warlord and liked it you will really like this.
The storyline wasn't as great as it could be but to be honest with you I really don't care. It's a sex novel people seem to forget that. The purpose to reading it is the sex and this sex was AMAZING and there was ALOT of it. I believe I counted
Good grief!! Can you say AWFUL??? I mean REALLY, REALLY AWFUL?? I think you can! I have a bunch of credits I need to use up on PBS, so when I was over there a while back this book popped up as just listed. Sounded just weird enough to be interesting, so I got it. The good thing about this book? It reminded me why I quit reading romances a long time ago. With this one there wouldn't have been anything at all to these "stories", and I use the term VERY loosely, without the sex. I like sex in my bo ...more

The premise sounds very promising. Authors captured by their own creations and dragged into their respective imaginary worlds.

Corinne and Celeste got the shock of their lives when the heroes of their respective books showed up and proceeded to kidnapped them. Not only where the men real, they are angry at all the trials and tribulations the unsuspecting writers had put them through, and are ready to extract their revenge.

I was prepared to enjoy this book, but unfortunately it did not turn out a

Oh, boy. This book grabbed me from page 1. I love, love, love the premise: sisters Celeste and Corinne are writers--Corinne writes paranormal romance, and Celeste writes science fiction. Two characters, one from each of their series, get together to bring Celeste and Corinne into their fictional worlds, and they're after revenge. If you've read Angela Knight &/or Diane Whiteside before, you won't be surprised to discover that said revenge takes a decidedly sexual bent.

I only liked the first half of this book, as it was high fantasy. Mythical medival king with a Dragon for a spirit brother looking for his queen kind of thing. Very up my alley. What surprised me however was how quickly it gets into the raunchy sex scenes, and how many there are. I'm not one to embarass easily, but these scenes made me blush.

The second story I could not get into. Found myself flipping from page to page just to be done, mostly because this one was all sci-fi futuristic space cowb
Many aspects of this book I enjoyed. The writing was good for the genre, the characters were interesting, and I loved the powers the female characters gained over the course of the book. My favourite character actually ended up being the dragon with his constent derision of mortals. The sex was sufficiently steamy and the story plots were enough to keep me interested to the end.

However, the one issue I have is how uncomfortably close the storylines of the first sexaul encounter with each of the

3.5 stars

It's a two-fer. Authors Angela Knight and Diane Whiteside had me at the back blurb. The plot of two authors getting sucked into the universes they created by the main hotty males they have created...was awesome. Great idea, loved reading it.

Obviously some more than others. The prologue was a creative way to start off these duel adventures. Then it splits into a story for each sister Corrine and Celeste. One goes to a world of magic, sorceress, and such the other to a sci-fi futuristic
Grh! The first story was okay! The second one was so very much disturbing!
I did not care for the way the women were treated in this one. The sex was borderline abuse and did not feel romantic for This Reader.

The premise: two sisters that write erotica and often put their two main "heros" through horrible ordeals come face-to-face with their main male characters. The book begins as one, then shifts into two separate short stories: one story for each (now) captured sister in two different themes (sci-fi & ancient).

One "hero" has an axe to grind and wants his author

Bound by the Dragon - 2.5*
- Cute but a bit confusing since it felt like we were thrown in the middle of a story > I wasn't familiar with Mikhael's world, or Corrine's book series, so the different tribes, creatures, sorceresses, warriors, lands, and kingdoms were just a hodge podge of randomly thrown names that I couldn't really make myself bored me a bit... While there was a lot of sex, it was somewhat boring too... nothing too hot, due to the author's language used...

I loved the book once I got into it. I thought that it was going to be a weird book but it turned out to be two good stories by two good authors.
The first one I didn't know how that book would be. I didn't know if it the couple would be together or break up.
Same thing with the second book.
But all in all the stories were well written and I throughly enjoyed it
There are two stories in this book. The first one by Diane Whiteside was OK but the second one by Angela Knight was a bit disturbing. The storyline would have been better without all of the bondage and cruelty.
I love this author and this book sounded so good. But, I could not really get into it. I did read it but I really not love it. It was okay. The author of short stories goes to a summer meet that is held once a year which sounds like a science fiction fantasy fest. She notices a hunk of a man that will be a great fighter in a compitition and from then on they are pretty much a couple well they find themselves the enemies of one man. This man ends up being the cause of them going through space to ...more
could not put it down wow

Corinne: Names, names, names. It got to the point where I stopped reading the names and started identifying everyone by the first letter. The rest was pretty interesting -- though I did have a bit of a hard time adjusting to the Tigerheart/Dragonheart/throne thing.

Celeste: This is purely a fault of mine. Generally, I don't really like futuristic sci-fi stuff. I started it and tried, for the sake of the original sister storyline, but it didn't interest me. Again, this is no fault of the author or
This book held great promise: two sisters who are writers don't know that they are directly influencing the lives of their heroes in other universes. The men get together and find a magical way to show themselves in the women's world and then take them back to their own world's to exact their revenge. Great plotline, unfortunately it was not fleshed out well at all--the book was mainly sex and often fairly graphic. More like erotica w/ barely a story to connect the sex scenes.
The story line seemed pretty cool - two sisters are sucked into the worlds they created and have to answer to the characters they write about. I also like Angela Knight's work, so I thought it'd be a fun read.

Um...nowhere in the description was it mentioned that this book was about bondage. In retrospect, "Captive Dreams" should have tipped me off. So even though stories were inventive and fun, I couldn't get around the "simulated" rape or liberal use of restraints.

If I were to rate this in terms of erotica as in how well the sex scenes were written I would give give it five stars however, in terms of romance and relationship development its rather weak. The relationships seemed rather forced I felt like this should have been made into two separate novels one for each author rather than squeezing two books into one especially considering the amount of world building that took place two separate worlds three to be specific.

It should have had a plot. It had everything it needed to have a good one. Two writers are unaware that the men they write about actually exist in another dimension and actually experience what is written about them. They get a chance to abduct the women and take revenge. Great set up, no follow through. There is lots of sex. The end.
Michele bookloverforever
the heroines are 2 authors who are sisters. They are taken captive by the main characters in their respective books who are mad at the authors for all the trials and tribulations the women have put them through and want to get even. Of course they fall in love and live happily ever after. erotic,explicit sex. magic. handsome heroes.
Interesting plot idea, however the characters failed to hold my attention and the smut was more an annoyance than anything erotic. For someone who was abused by her ex-husband, the first girl sure seemed to overcome her fears and give in to the forced sex pretty quickly.
I couldn't get past the third chapter.
I actually really liked this story about 2 sisters that are authors. and find out that there stories are real inan alternate world and there main characters (MEN) are out for revenge and find a way to get it.
These books have LOTS OF SEX and the second sisters story is a little dsturbing in a futuristic way
..... To be perfectly honest, it's mostly soft porn. The story was engaging and fun. I did not care for the females and I'm not really sure why. The situation leading up to their encounters with their men is a stretch, but it was fun.

Will I read it again? Likely not. Do I regret reading it? Not one bit.
I loved this book!! The storyline was great, the sex scenes were great, the entire idea that your made-up characters could come to life was great. I will say that I enjoyed the barbarian world more than the futuristic/space world, but that's personal preference.

Rated NC-17
Jasmine Tiller
Love this book, read it about 10 times and I like it even more. This story is so detailed and I can actually imagine their world in my head, and it feels as if I'm just along for the ride. I love Corrine and Mykhayl story the most. I recommend this book to everyone!!!!
My Rating System:
* couldn't finish, ** wouldn't recommend, *** would recommend, **** would read again, ***** have read again.

I enjoyed the characters, and their world and hope I get the chance to read the story again and/or to read more within the series.
Jacquelyn Frank
I really enjoyed this but there's definitely an element of being an author and having had similar fantasies myself. When you write a perfect hero, you really do wish he could come to life. Of course, these heroes aren't exactly pleased with their creators...
