I will never get enough of Sherrilyn Kenyon she will always be at the top of the list where authors are concerned for me. In this short I like how she incorporates writing as an author. I thought the story was going to be predictable but it wasn't.

She is the only one to make me believe that a gorgeous handsome man with the most perfect esthetic's be interested in the regular girl next door type or even the plump girl type. I love the tormented hero that is every bit vulnerable to the outcome of

I liked the second story the best.

Quick read

Decent stories although nothing that I would say is unforgettable. Just plain solid happily ever afters. Great for a quick evening read

I came across this book at a library book sale, and picked it up specifically for the short story by Sherrilyn Kenyon. I really enjoyed this set of three short stories! I love SK's story, Knightly Dreams, and thought it was a different take on a time traveling story. I love the idea of heroes and heroines come to life from the pages of a book! And that we can indeed write our own life stories. I was not overly impressed with the second story, Shattered Dreams by Rebecca York. I like the idea of ...more

Not so hot.

Sherrilyn Kenyon~ This was the same story I've reasd in other anthologies where the knight travels through time to awaken in bed with a woman in presen time after she had gone to a book store, met an old woman & read a romance book. He has 7 days to get her to love him.

Rebecca York~ Psychic man has vision of an old flame getting int a wreck. She ends up in a coma & he connects with her in her coma world to save her from someone trying to kill her.

"Knightly Dreams" by Sherrilyn Kenyon
This was my second favorite of the three, chosen for the laugh-out-loud factor, plus extra bonus points for the writer's fantasy of allowing the character to write her own ending.

"Shattered Dreams" by Rebecca York
The dreamscapes in this novella, about the son of a Gypsy fortuneteller who enters the dreams of his comatose love, were beautiful and surreal and everything you want to remember when you wake up from your own dreams. A true gem of a story.

Three magical romances. First, a depressed modern woman finds a fictional white knight in her bed after a strange encounter with an elderly bookstore owner. Can she rewrite his story to give them a happy ending? Second, Caleb gets a vision of Miranda being forced off the road and near death. His gypsy psychic ability is needed to enter her coma state and bring her back, while trying to find out who is out to kill her. Third, Jake, a shallow cop, Shauna, a risk phobic florist, and Boris, a feral ...more

I'm really surprised, and not in a good way.

Of course, I bought this book because of Sherrilyn Kenyon and it being an anthology of magical romances.
Kenyon's story is, unfortunately, not her best. It's not bad but there's something missing. Normally, that wouldn't bother me because with this being an anthology, there are other stories for me to read. But it turned out that I couldn't stand them.

3 short stories in 1 book. 1st story was good and would have liked seen the story develop much more. 2nd story was just ok and the 3rd didn't really do much for me. The draw was the 1st story the others were not very well developed and felt somewhat teenish in the way the love interest developed vs. more adult. It was a struggle for me to get through the last story. I do like Kenyon's books so that was the draw.
Apr 20, 2016 Tash rated it it was ok  ·  review of another edition
I was very disappointed! I hadn't realized that this was a compilation of three short stories but I quickly found that out after the first story. It wouldn't have been so bad if at least one of the stories was a little good but they were all cheesy and I feel like I wasted my time. I'm so ready to find a book that'll get my reading-mojo going again!

Knightly Dreams S.Kenyon 3of 5
Shattered Dreams R. York 5 of 5
Road of Adventure 1 of 5

I got this book based on the fact I like S. Kenyon and R. York. I had already read Shattered Dreams (it is a 43 Light St story) and I liked S. Kenyon's story. I could not get into Owens story. I will however consider her in another anthology. I won't, just yet, look for her titles single.
I liked the first story in the book more so than the next two. In the middle story, I had a hard time caring about either of the main characters. The final story had too pat a resolution. The hero was a jerk, and I didn't see why the heroine would stay with him.

These are three of my favorite authors. I enjoyed all three stories. If you haven't read all three of these authors other books you are missing out. Just finished rereading Robin Owens HeartMate series as well as her newest HeartMate book.

Did care for this much at all. Would give it 1.5 stars if could give half stars. For me the best story was the last one, Road of Adventure by Robin D.Owens. Least favorite - Nightly Dreams by Sherrilyn Kenyon.
Liked all the short stories. I gave them all 4 stars. This was my 1st work by Robin D. Owens.Very promising stuff.

If you like to buy this book you can swap it from me cheap on it out!

I read the first story - Knightly Dreams by Sherrilyn Kenyon. I really liked it. It was funny and sweet and you really wanted the characters to be together. I don't have anything negative to say about any of Sherrilyn Kenyon's books. I loved each one I have read so far.

This is actually a book of 3 short stories. The first is Knightly Dreams by Sherrilyn Kenyon. I would swear I have read it before so I am putting it in here so I won't "forget" that I read it. It is a good story, a quick read, kind of a fun concept mixing current and historical.

3 short stories. I liked the first story and wished it was a full length book, second was ok, 3rd I really did not like at all. The only thing i could think of with these stories were cheese. Lots of cheese!

I really enjoyed the first story as it was written by one of my favorite authors. I also liked the second story. The third one, however, I did not like the way it ended so abruptly.

I was disappointed in this collection. Although the first story by Kenyon was intriguing, they were contrite and bland. The characters lacked the depth and the plots too simplistic.

I LOVED Kenyon's story about the writer who meets a knight. As a writer myself, the story was very appealing and fun.
