I am doing these as I read them, because I read so much, I forget who's who, blah blah blah...

This is an anthology & each story has a tapestry of some kind in it. It is not all PNR but HR as well.

The Kiss in the Shadows by Lynn Kurland

This historical romance was about a shunned girl, Lianna who was ward of the court, ugly from pock scars to her face, but had a whole lot of wealth left to her after her family was slaughtered.

She meets Jason & his brother. She is poisoned & the men wat

I only read this one for the Karen Marie Moning story in it. The story was supposedly part of the highlander series but the only characters in common was the queen and king of the fae. It was okay, but I wouldn't buy the book.

I loved each of the 4 stories in here! I'll admit, I had never read anything by Sherrilyn Kenyon. This made me go download the whole series this is a part of! I got this for the KMM story, and it lived up to my expectations. It was sexy and funny...Jane writing a serial romance for the people of the village :)

I've read two of the stories in the compilation.

First was Karen Marie Moning's "Into the Dreaming" A lovely little short story that fit nicely into her Highlander series. Aedynn has to fall in love with a mortal girl in 30 days...or be forever VENGENCE for the Unseelie King. Jane has dreampt of him all of her life, and she's going to MAKE him remember her and love her. It was fun and cute, although I find myself worried about the Fairy Queen.

Next was To Kiss in the Shadowsby Lynn Kurland. I had

This is the very first compilation of short stories I've ever read and I LOVED it! It was so much fun to get little glimpses into the worlds these authors write in. I am already a HUGE fan of Karen Marie Moning and a new fan of Lynn Kurland, who I just recently discovered. The other two authors were new to me, but I really enjoyed them both. One really fun part about reading a romance in short story format, is that you get to the physical stuff much faster than in a full sized novel! While I do ...more

Tapestry – over all this series of novellas were quite good. The first novel brought down the average for me but I enjoyed the others very much.

“To Kiss in the Shadows” was a solid 2 for me. It was the story of an outcast heiress VS. an outcast third son of a lord. The heroine was the richest heiress in King Henry’s court with pox-scarred face, tortured, and mocked by her peers. The hero was a misunderstood-to-be-the-dark-warlock squire. When she was poisoned by her jealousy peers, he nursed he

As a huge Sherrilyn Kenyon fan, I couldn't wait to read "Tapestry" for her contribution. But I was surprised to find, I enjoyed all four novellas in the anthology.

The first, "To Kiss in the Shadows," by Lynn Kurland, was a historical romance. Lianna was once beautiful, but her face was marred by pox. Her family is dead but she is living as a ward of the king. She holds great lands that will one day go to her husband.

The women of the court are not kind to her; they merely tolerate her and sometim

Lynn Kurland: To Kiss in the Shadows
I would have liked to see more falling in love between the hero and heroine. It seemed like they just kind of did. And I wanted to see more on the hero's black reputation.

I wanted to see more of the first half of the story, with the hero and heroine interacting, and less of the second half, which seemed like fluff and revisiting previous characters.

I only read the novella “Dragonswan” by Sherrilyn Kenyon because it is part of her Dark-Hunter series. I do not think good reads gets the numbering right, so for the purpose of my reviews all the Dark-Hunter novellas in anthologies are not “officially” part of the series, since very few of the characters in the novellas are ever mentioned in Ms. Kenyon’s full novel series. So, for my reviews I am going to give them half numbers. “Dragonswan” is number 1.5 (meaning that it comes after “Fantasy Lo ...more

This book contains four short stories by various authors. I bought it right before a vacation, thinking that the shorter stories would help the plane flights go faster, and because these are all authors I've wondered about, but haven't read. It was a success - the flights went quicker, and I got a taste of four new authors.

I enjoyed all four stories, but didn't absolutely love any one of them. Lynn Kurland's had sort of a nice "message" about seeing beyond a person's appearance, and it was a swe

Tapestry is anthology with four different authors: Lynn Kurland, Madeline Hunter, Sherrilyn Kenyon, & Karen Marie Moning. Each of the stories has a tapestry that plays a prominent role in the story line, hence the title of Tapestry.

I originally bought the book for the Lynn Kurland's story, To Kiss in the Shadows, but I was pleasantly surprised to find that I really liked three out of four of the stories in the anthology. The only one I didn't really like was Into the Dreaming, but even that

Lynn Kurlands To Kiss in the Shadows, Lianna hides while in the court to be wed, trying not to show her face since shes scarred by the pox.

DRAGONSWAN by Sherrilyn Kenyon

REREAD #1: 8/10 (31 December 2005 - 31 December 2005)

This is probably my favourite of Kenyon's HunterLegends short stories. Of course, it has a dragon in it - and a super sexy one at that - which gives it a good head start. Sebastian is a lovely character; I love the way he always tells Channon the truth and because of the situation, she initially takes it all as a joke. She is strong and clever and takes things in her stride in a realistic kind of way.

I really think that the only reason I sort of liked this short story was that it added more information to the Dark-Hunters series as a whole. I know it is only a short story but the plot seemed to be lacking somewhat and the characters, even for a short story, seemed highly underdeveloped and I did not really like either one of th

I read this book because the short story "Dragonswan" was listed as part of the Dark-Hunter Series. However, I really didn't see the connection. The story itself was good, it felt rushed but I guess it had to be since it was a "short" story. I believe that if it was an actual book, it would have been really good. I am just getting into the Dark-Hunter series, so I wanted to read everything and in order but I strongly feel this story does not relate to Fantasy Lover and Night Pleasures. So if you ...more

She was living in Hawaii at the time and the scope for her imagination (poisoned fish, tropical cliffs, large spiders) was great and poor Clinton bore the brunt of it.
