Um, this book didn't work for me. I hate to be a party pooper but I couldn't get into this paranormal erotica book. The sex was so sudden and weirdly worked into the story, and the world building was not up to par. I wanted something more well thought out and this wasn't it for me. The writing wasn't bad per say just not my taste. I kept putting the book down, and I had to force myself to read a few pages each time I picked it up. Not very promising. I'm sure some people will enjoy this story be ...more

Sono rimasta decisamente incantata dalla nuova short novel di Eleri Stone "Threads of desire", tanto da divorarla durante un pomeriggio di lettura, assaporandone la magia, la sensualità e la bellezza dei personaggi durante la lettura. Il mondo in cui e' ambientata la storia mi ha catapultato in un luogo che mi ricordava "Le mille e una notte", ma anche uno di quei mercati presenti nel mondo arabo. Forse il fatto che Ily e' una tessitrice e parte del libro e' ambientato in un mercato mi ha creato ...more

Read in an afternoon. Fantasy romance with the plot falling mostly on the romance side of the line. An interesting world with magic channelled into the arts and ruled by guilds. Lots of tension and heat between the two main characters, Kal, a rich merchant with opaque motives, and Ily, a master weaver who's outcast from her guild.
Quibble: The villain was dispatched a little easily.

Threads of Desire is a delightful little novella about mages and magic, greed and corruption, power and abuse, love and family and most of all what one man will sacrifice for his child.

After having escaped from the depravity of the Guild, Ily has accepted that her best chance for survival is sell what she can, hoard her money and run to the outer provinces. She knows her work is superior, she knows no one in the marketplace she has been forced to survive in can out weave her. She is one of only

As in any romance, the tension is in what keeps the lovers apart, or stops them from committing to each other. In this instance, Ily is a virtual pauper from the street and Kal is a rich man, but Ily's mistrust of powerful men is the more potent issue. Ms Stone handles the emotional/psychological aspects of her characters well, and it's this skill that makes her erotica stand above the mediocre.

She tells us very little about the world we find ourselves in, instead the culture of the world is rev

I have to be honest with my blog readers, I can’t find a way to finish reading this book.
At my first approach with this book, I believed that I had a wonderful story ahead of me. I was reading a synopsis which seemed to promise so much and the beautiful cover made me think that I would have a great way to spend my next hours dreaming about a new world, full of magic. Unfortunately, and now is the time not to judge a book by its cover, nothing happened like I was planning mainly because the book

Quite a short read but I really like it. Wonderful chemistry btwn the H/H & the writing flowed well which made it an enjoyable read. Little of an Arabian nites flavor to the story. Would have like a bit more depth & length to the story but overall I'd recommend it to anyone who enjoys fantasy romance (a lot of sex scenes tho)

A Little deeper than a typical romance, very good!
Thanh Tran
Quick read with great characters. I personally thought the author could've developed the characters further. The protagonists had some depth and like-able.

Lured in by the concept if weaving with magic! Wasn't as impressed by the rest of the story, but it was a solid concept.
