Product Description

Review

"What these seventeen surprisingly diverse stories all have in common is atmosphere--and that in luxurious groaning-board abundance. It's the kind of rich, erotically charged ambiance that stays with a reader long after the book has been closed or the electronic device turned off, and, like the memory of the tastes and aromas of a great meal, lingers pleasantly in the imagination, waiting to be remembered (or re-read) yet one more time." --Erotica for the Big Brain "Dream Lover: Paranormal Tales of Erotic Romance presents 17 short stories that blend romantic erotica with a touch of the otherworldly." --The Moxie Bee "If, like me, you like your romance to be part of a great story with some really hot sex scenes then you will want to pick up a copy of this book for yourself. Supernatural romance buffs will especially thrill to the stories in this compilation." --Airen Wolf Reviews "This is a huge collection of very short but very steamy and romantic love stories with a paranormal twist. I was going to highlight my favorites, but the list was too long! There isn't a story in here that I wouldn't give at least 4 howls to, but almost all of them really deserve 5. They all succeeded on some level whether it was the unique storyline, the interesting characters, the ability to draw out strong emotions so quickly, or the flow of the words. I found some of the stories so amazingly unique, and I can't help but wonder how these authors come up with these ideas. It was just very impressive. Although each story was unique, they all fit together wonderfully in this anthology. The foreword by Megan Hart was very sensual and was a brilliant start to this collection. I'm so glad I read this and found a whole new list of authors that I will now search out. Dream Lover book is definitely a keeper!!" -- Kris at Bitten by Paranormal Romance "Dream Lover is a fun and exciting anthology of paranormal erotic fiction. If you've ever read a paranormal romance, you have a good idea of what paranormal erotica involves. Yes, there are the usual vampires and werewolves, but there are also fairies and gargoyles and ghosts, oh my! The editor, Kristina Wright, has done a masterful job of choosing and arranging stories with a wide variety of fantasy elements and steamy sexual scenarios." --Ivy Wilde "Dream Lover takes the reader through some of the most interesting erotic fantasy fiction around." --Sandra Scholes for Love Romance Passion "An imaginative collection of short and arousing tales involving a breadth of paranormal characters. Nice plot twists involving Lucy Feltouse's bored succubus or Kate Pearce's man of one's dreams locked in a tower give variety to the tales which feature a mixture of familiar and new authors who show their dexterity at creating hot scenes between unusual characters in all too brief tales." --Night Owl Reviews "Overall, the whole anthology was good. Each story in Dream Lover was short and unique. All focus on different aspects of love and the way different people and beings can experience it. It was a very quick and easy read. -- Athena at Paranormal Haven "Kristina Wright delivers taut, breakneck pacing with snappy dialogue." --Book Page "Dream Lover, edited by Kristina wright, is a collection of diverse, elegantly erotic tales of paranormal romance." --Erin O'Riordan "From mermaids to succubi to vampires, the Dream Lover anthology has it all. Stuffed full of authors both new and familiar to me, I found something to satisfy every mood I might have, as well as every mystical creature I've ever thought about imagining. I loved how the stories all had a similar thread running through them, but were all different enough to stand out on their own. Each will grab your attention and draw you into its own world for a moment or two before returning you home again. If you're a lover of the exotic, erotic, and extraordinary, then this is by far the anthology for you." --Whipped Cream Reviews DREAM LOVER by Kristina Wright, editor Genre: Anthology, Paranormal, Erotic Romance 4 star RT Rating "The erotic tales in Dream Lover differ in setting and character, but all are well written and passionate. There is a choice of paranormal seduction for every reader. All are original and entertaining. Highlights of this 17-story anthology include Justine Elyot's "Love Resurrection," where an academic is seduced by the ghost of her favorite poet. A fairy comes for a sugar rush from a pretty baker in Shanna German's "Devil's Food." In "Shattered Belle," Craig Sorensen proves that even ghosts get a second chance at love. In Alana Noel Voth's "Moongirl Meets the Wolfman," a shapeshifter finally finds his perfect mate. A Fae must defeat the demon with whom he made a bargain in order to stay with his lover in Ericka Hiatt's "The Eye of Pearl." A woman finds her dream lover and learns about her own desires in Kristina Wright's "Thief of Dreams." Reviewed By: Keitha Hart, Romantic Times Magazine

Sweet and Supernatural Lovers 30 Jun. 2011
By Sammi - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I received Dream Lover: Paranormal Tales of Erotic Romance for free, in exchange for writing an unbiased review. I was excited to get this one, as I like supernatural and horror stories - and having a bit of erotica mixed in with these elements seemed like a great combination.

This is a nice collection of romantic and somewhat erotic stories. They lean more towards romantic dalliances, but they all have an erotic edge that makes the couplings more exciting. These 242 pages contain 17 stories, a forward by Megan Hart, introduction by Kristina Wright, and short about the authors and editor sections in the back.

In the forward, Megan delves into what fantasies means and covers the different contexts. She talks about how fantasies often involve something more dark and mysterious than what we might encounter in real life. Kristina carries this further in her introduction, when she ponders who your dream lover could be and reveals a somewhat surprising choice of her own - and one I completely understand as it used to be one of my choices as well.

The stories in this collection run the gamut : a ghost resurrected by a yearning woman, a woman seduced by a man from the sea, a human baker and her larger-than-fairy visitor, a woman and man who can make rain, female ghosts who seduce men, ghostly lovers who want to reconnect through their modern-day counterparts, werewolves, wolfmen, gargoyles, witches, telepaths, birdmen, succubi, bewitched men and vampires, demons and angels, all find their way into the lives of characters living in this collection.

All of the stories here are well written: how erotic they are will depend on how well you like the couplings (e.g., if you're really into ghosts, "Love Resurrection" by Justine Elyot and "Living off Lovers" by Kristina Lloyd may be your stories of choice, while if you're more into witches "Old-Fashioned Glamour" by Nikki Magennis may be more your style.

While I enjoyed most of the stories in these pages (I love horror and supernatural elements in stories, regardless of genre), these two were my favorites:

"Freeing the Demon" by Sacchi Green - the gargoyle stands guard outside her window, until one night her pimp causes it to do more than guard. Can Jayne's demon break free from the stone and come to love her as a flesh and blood being?

"Thief of Dreams" by Kristina Wright - is she dreaming or is she awake when she sees and talks to the handsome angel she often finds sitting on the edge of her bed? After a bout of insomnia, Michelle learns who her mysterious nighttime visitor is who walks through her dreams and tastes her soul.

Overall, this is a fun collection to sink your teeth into before bedtime and inspire whatever dreams you may have when you finally drift off to sleep.

A solid collection of sexy paranormal short stories 25 May 2011
By Pamela - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I enjoy paranormal romance and urban fantasy, and I also enjoy a good, hot sex scene in a book. Luckily for me, Dream Lover fits the bill. It's a solid collection of sexy paranormal stories: some more romantic, some more erotic, and all hot.

**The Hits**

The stories I liked best, in terms of storytelling blended with erotica, were "Living Off Lovers" by Kristina Lloyd, "Folly" by Kate Pearce, and "Lust As Old As Us" by Madeline Moore. "Living Off Lovers" is a strange story, told from the point of view of a woman living in an apartment building that seems to be gaining sentience. She's intrigued by her neighbor, and finds that they've both been drawn into a ghostly disturbance. The sex in "Living Off Lovers" is shockingly erotic, though due to, er, certain sex acts it might not be to everyone's taste.

In "Folly," Rose gives in to her urge to explore a ruined old house and brings to life an ancient being. Pearce's writing is smooth and believable, and even in such a short story, Rose is a believable, sympathetic character who is trying to get over her boyfriend's betrayal and deal with the magic she's awakened in the stone.

"Lust As Old As Us" isn't a traditionally romantic story, and the love it deals with--between a mortal woman and a vampire--strays far over the border into obsession. While the love story isn't my ideal, I was definitely fascinated by the power the woman and the vampire had over each other. The ending really surprised me. I don't want to spoil it, but while it does have something of a Happily Ever After, it definitely wasn't what I expected.

The sexiest and most romantic stories for me were "Dreaming By The Sea" by Delilah Devlin, "Devil's Food" by Shanna Germain, and "Vanilla" by Victoria Janssen. "Dreaming By The Sea" was lovely and sensual, about a woman afraid of the sea whose repressed history is brought back by a mysterious visitor on her beach. "Devil's Food" was a cute and romantic story about a baker and a mysterious, sugar-craving man (There are lots of mysterious men in this anthology). "Vanilla" is more of a snippet than a complete short story, about a telepath who finally lets someone close to her. Janssen is a wonderful writer, and I think I'm going to have to poke around and see if "Vanilla" is part of a larger story.

**The Misses**

There were a few stories that didn't ring my bell. The first in the anthology, "Love Resurrection" by Justine Elyot, involved a woman summoning up a ghostly lover, a poet who sold his soul to the devil. The concept is great, but the execution left something to be desired. The happy ending seemed too pat and had me rolling my eyes. Most of the few stories that didn't do it for me involved Happily Ever Afters shoehorned into stories about people who've just met. Your mileage may vary, of course, but I personally prefer HEAs that come about after character have gotten to know each other, not an hour after they've had sex for the first time. But that is my own personal reading quirk, and if you dig the love-at-first-sight kind of romances, you'll probably enjoy the stories that I didn't.

**Overall**

Dream Lover is a great blend of sexy stories, with something for every reader. If you want down-and-dirty erotica, you'll find it here. If you're looking for a little more tenderness and romance to go with that hot sex, you'll find that, too. For me, there were many more hits than misses, and I'm glad I picked this up. In fact, I'll probably end up re-reading quite a few of these stories.

Otherworldly romance, served up steamy 30 Jun. 2011
By Teresa Noelle Roberts - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This is a fine collection of short paranormal erotic romances. Some of the stories are solidly written and fun, but probably won't stay with me for long. Others I have no doubt I'll remember for a long time to come.

A few standouts for me:

Shanna Germain's charming "Devil's Food," in which a baker heroine meets a hot fairy man with a sweet tooth. The story's endearing and the sex is hot, but what really makes this tale is the talking toad sidekick.

Sacchi Green's "Freeing the Demon"--this is one dark, creepy story and not a love story in any conventional sense, yet it's deeply Romantic with a capital R.

"Moongirl Meets the Wolfman," by Alana Noel Voth, a different take on the werewolf mythos, written in a literary yet sexy style.

I could easily recap almost all the stories as stand-outs in some sense--for plot, for writing style, for sheer sex appeal. Why, then, only 4 stars? Just my personal preference. I would have liked to see a few more stories that explored the darker side of the supernatural and/or the "darker," kinkier side of sex. A few more kinky, dark, twisted (yet romantic) tales in the vein of "Freeing the Demon" would made this excellent collection a 5-star one for my personal tastes. Despite that minor complaint, this book is going on the keeper shelf and I suspect I'll be rereading it often.

Outstanding 17 May 2013
By Cherise Everhard - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
This book is an anthology of 17 Paranormal Erotic Tales.

This book was absolutely excellent, one of my favorite anthologies, ever. I am only sorry that it took me so long to finally read and review it. Out of the 17 tales I can't think of one that I didn't like or wasn't impressed with. Sure, I liked some more than others, but all of them were exceptionally well written and deliciously sexy.

Each story is very short, but I was really impressed by the level of detail and sensuality that each author was able to convey in so few words. I was also surprised, delightfully so, at some of the romance felt throughout. Sometimes stories so short have to sacrifice a few things... Usually writers keep the sex and have a harder time expressing the romance of the story. Some of these stories were incredibly romantic, and still managed to have plenty of sex.

This is a group of stories I would happily recommend to my friends who like a steamy paranormal read. There is something for everyone.

Paranormal Erotica 5 July 2011
By Sam - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book was sent to me for free in exchange for an unbiased review. That being said, I love this book all the same.

Dream Lover was edited by Kristina Wright and features a foreword from Megan Hart and 17 stories from different authors. The stories are all on the longer side of short stories, averaging about 15 pages or so. This is perfect for those who really need longer stories to be able to get into the plot but don't want to read a whole book about one subject.

The stories all vary in subject nature and really spread themselves out across the board of paranormal. There are stories that feature magic, guardian angels, elves, fairies, and even succubi. No two stories are exactly the same with their paranormal activities, however they do all have one common theme; that they are essentially between a man and a woman in each coupling. Either way, all of the stories have been written well and were able to captivate me the whole time I was reading.

There were a few stories that I personally didn't find to be quite as erotic, but I still enjoyed reading them all the same. Some of my favorites were Dream Thief (written by Kristina Wright) where a woman learns she has a guardian angel, and then falls in love with him after he's able to give her the tough love that she so craves; Devil's Food (written by Shanna Germain) that tells us the story of a baker on the edge of a paranormal realm who encounters a fairy with some serious sugar cravings and isn't wanting just some baked goods; and Folly (written by Kate Pierce) about a Stone Walker who's been trapped in stone for 10 centuries and calls to a woman in her dreams. She can't quite figure out what draws her to this old stone building, but she caves and visits it anyway. There she discovers her Stone Walker and has the night of her life.

Pretty much all of the stories end with the two copulating characters falling in love, or at least imply that they are or are going to fall in love, so they definitely seem aimed at the hopeless romantic. Me being one myself, I really enjoyed that aspect of the book and would happily recommend Dream Lover to anybody who enjoys longer stories about paranormal activities that include sex and a "happily ever after."
