Alexa Piper Hard one! I really like Gretel because of her devil may care attitude, then again I also like the muse because I cares more than he should.

Amazingly sexy fantasy and paranormal erotic romance short stories. Cloaks itself in fairy tale and mythology with flirting with taboo. The first story, "Phoenix and Styx," immediately caught my interest and . . . I can't really say more without spoilers!

Lyrical, poetic, and mythic tales of enchanting erotica

I received a free copy of this work in exchange for an honest review.

I believe this is only the second "free review copy" book that has received 5 stars from me (4.5 stars rounded up for the nice variety of couplings). I didn't specifically request to review erotica, and I was a little disappointed when that's what was assigned. However, the writing quickly whisked those feelings away and swept me into a range of settings, characaters and

This is not often said about Erotica - but _Luminous Dreams_ is an extraordinary anthology of magic and adult literature. I may have saved the "Phoenix and Styx" for later in the book, as, without understanding the "fairy tale"/"mythology" theme, it was a bit confusing. Later characters such as Gretel and her lure to the candy house, and especially, Aurora in "Fortune’s Song" create new,sensuous twists to the tales we all grew up with.

I comment Alexa Piper for creating a world that is

This is a very strange compilation of 9 short stories. All are imaginative and varying types of erotic. I enjoyed several but generally they were more weird than anything. Again, they were very imaginative and a few were even quite ‘cute’ in the word usage and how a picture was painted. Using dreams as a basis it was hard to tell at times if it was a dream or reality. Maybe that was the point, to blur the reality just enough but not too much. If you want some quick erotic reads there are several ...more

Luminous dreams by Piper. I received a free copy from the publisher and volunteered to review it. There were 9 paranormal, erotic romances which were tastefully done. The short stories were Phoenix and Styx, Fortune's song, Candy and the witch, the night train (you'll never travel by train again), I will feed you honey (from a Tarot card), the acorn princess, drinks and the other witch (shades of Hansel and Gretel, nocturnal conquests, and a raven by day (what by night?) Good for short stories.

Style over substance short stories. Some of the writing didn't make much sense, the major punctuation of the stories were the graphic sex scenes (which I kinda expected from the book description). While I appreciate that the author was inclusive in the variety and one was a F/F story, the rest of the stories weren't my cup of tea.

This book is a the most fantastic, sexiest, erotic twist on fairy tales and myths that I have ever read.

I was asked to review this book by www.librarything.com

I have never read erotic romance short stories so this was a first for me. I have snuggled down in the cold dark days of January and found these nine stories to be creative, dreams that you were not sure if this was real or not - but as these were beautifully written, I just enjoyed. There is a touch of fairytale too.

A different slant on the erotic and well written.
